The_Sponge: loutotheis: Just ban all guns and give gun owners VR Headsets

/Might actually work


Yes, because a VR headset is a great tool to have when I drive up into the mountains.

*Eye roll*


Is it not? You could stop to relax with some zombie killing in Arizona Sunshine when you needed a break from the drive. That game is extremely simplistic, and yes it may be a bit too short, but it is also a lot of fun.

anustart: One day, a giant meteor hit the U.S., killing one third of the U.S. population.  That same day, NASA discovered a second giant meteor headed towards Earth. They went public with the news that as many as another third of the U.S. population would die if no action was taken.  The government did nothing.

When pressed for a response, House, Senate and White House officials issued the following joint statement:
"In this difficult and tragic moment when so many of our fellow citizens are grieving, it would be inappropriate to politicize the issue of giant meteors by engaging in a debate on how to deal with them. Now is simply not the time."


No it hit Canada.

Keyser_Soze_Death: durbnpoisn: Markoff_Cheney: Columbine was the first big one in my lifetime, and it seemed like we didn't have another for a long stretch after that.  People aren't even talking about Vegas any more, I remember Columbine being front page news for 3+ months straight around here.

It wasn't just your lifetime.  That was the first time it ever happened.

Prior to that no one had ever considered shooting up a school.

[images.gr-assets.com image 308x475]

No one... Ever.


//Does 2 seconds of research...

Ok.  I stand corrected.
I don't think that exactly qualifies as a mass shooting by Columbine standards.

Oh really?  Because in the past I've said that we need to clean up the background check system, make it easier to black list people with severe mental problems.  (My younger brother is mentally ill, so I'm objective in saying that.)   And I've also said that we need to increase the penalties for people who use firearms during the commission of a crime.

bikerbob59: First you must define 'mass shooting'.  I don't consider three 'mass'.


How to have fewer mass shootings? Easy. Redefine the term mass shooting.

I'd say mass is more than 100. That should take care of the problem.

"Negotiate with me, or we'll take all your guns away later!"

"Why should I think you're not just going to immediately go back on any agreement we make and press for more?"

"Why aren't you negotiating in good faith?!"

Also, yes.  When the "gun nuts" actually compromise on something, they follow the laws they agreed to.  Just because YOU think those laws didn't go far enough and want more doesn't magically mean they aren't following them.

In reality, there are 5 dead people, including the shooter, and NOBODY at the school is dead. This seems to be some kind of spree at multiple locations, but the news headlines specifically say that there are dead kids AT the school. Even the headline of TFA was wrong up until a few minutes ago.


Accuracy is important, but it doesn't make it any less heinous if the dead child was somewhere other than at the school.

Pet_Peve: I would like to know how outlawing guns would be anymore effective than outlawing drugs has been.


Well, lets start with the idea that the only thing they would have in common would be being illegal to posses, etc. So, if that's the only thing in common, we can make the exact same comparison to anything else illegal, like child porn. So, I take it you don't think it's worth the effort to try to minimize child porn by making it illegal?

At least be honest and say that you guys want to take our rights away.

You want a proposal?  How about cleaning up the background check system?  Because it FAILED before the shooting in Texas.


I don't want to take your rights away. But considering how disgusting I find your attitude towards guns I'm not going to advocate against that action either. I'd like to find a compromise that works but gun nuts refuse those every single time. You're choosing this path and hate where it leads. I'd think you'd want to try a different path but here you are. I'm not gonna cry for you, you cry enough for yourself and your guns while good people who aren't you die. So no sympathy.

I say no a lot as well because the ideas are idiotic, come across as some weird power fantasy with no hope of doing anything positive, or are unconstitutional.

I've posted at length about crime distribution in many cities and how poverty is a major factor in most of the violent crime in this country, meaning that dealing with that poverty is key to reducing crime (and thus violence with and without guns) along with ending or scaling back the drug war.

You want more talk about gun control, not about reducing violence, curbing murder, etc.  This is why people eventually just say "NO" to you and move on.

Dimensio: HumanSVD: Dimensio: HumanSVD: Dimensio: Pinner: Gun violence. No such thing. They just sit there.
Let's address people violence.

If we can narc on people that assault people sexually, we should be able to drop a dime on people that have violent tendencies or are too aggressive (and happen to own guns)

Difficulty: evidence suggests that even when that does happen no one in authority does anything. See the Texas church shooter (known problems that should have disqualified him from firearm ownership that were never properly reported), the Naval Yard shooter (at least two previous arrests for negligent firearm discharges that resulted in no charges being filed) or the Virginia Tech shooter (improperly filed court records which would have prevented him from legally purchasing a firearm had they been properly filed).

But government should be the one I who can only have semi automatic firearms. You kniw, that same goverment that shiats on the 4th, and the same government whose police agents fark people over all the time.

Yes. Gun control is clearly what is needed.

I do not advocate prohibiting civilian ownership of semi-automatic firearms. In fact, I have stated opposition to any gun control proposal that involves outright prohibition of any currently available firearm model. I would want a path to legal ownership for any currently available firearm type, with the government having a burden to justify rejecting ownership (as is the case with shall-issue based permitting systems).

I also recognize, however, that some level of firearm restrictions can reduce rates of violent crime.

Yes, like Mexico, where guns are illegal. Unicorn's and rainbows all around.

[img.fark.net image 850x624]

As if any single one of these weapons confiscated from Mexican cartels was not first bought using the gun show loophole and then smuggled over the border.


Ha! You are aware illegal fully automatic weapons are everywhere south of border right? The entire part of South America, including Mexico is flooded with weapons from china, russia, and Romania to include former east Germany.

And I can definitely see a select fire ak there. I can tell from the third axis pin that houses the full auto trigger sear. Are you going t ell me that's from the gun show loophole too?

And that just proves my point even more. Criminals will still get them elsewhere. Banning doesn't fix shiat.

Look, I posted links warning people why you don't go all in immediately after a story breaks.

You came back with some stupid bullshiat trying to pretend like I don't care about people getting shot. Not because I said anything, but because Fark is the home page for the "You're either with us or against us" crowd, so my pointing out inaccurate reporting immediately after a story breaks must mean that I support mass shootings.

Don't come crying to me when your farking bullshiat comes back to bite you on the ass.

Of course, I should have known better. I did the same thing when the Vegas shooting happened and everyone reported that the guy was going from casino to casino and people were stealing police cars to escape. Nobody cares about what really happens, just how they can use it to further whatever version of the story they like best.

You care more about gun control than you do saving lives.  Very few gun control proposals have any chance of stopping either day-to-day violence or spree/mass killers.  The ones that would actually work would require massive confiscation and a near police state to maintain compliance.
This is unworkable and a violation of rights.

That you can't see beyond gun control as a solution to reducing violence shows misguided you are.

Drug war violence, poverty, violent people being released over and over again.  Addressing these would begin doing wonders for the violent crime you're concerned about.

Nobody's farking buying it. I sincerely do not believe that you give two shiats about poverty or inner city crime beyond their ability to deflect.

It wasn't just your lifetime.  That was the first time it ever happened.

Prior to that no one had ever considered shooting up a school.

If you care more about an inanimate object than the lives of your fellow humans, you're a worthless garbage person who deserves neither respect nor consideration.
