Yay guns, the gift that keeps on giving.
 
2019-03-25 12:09:38 PM  
Yikes!

If I was a suspicious person...

If only Alex Jones would follow suit.

So 2 parkland kids and 1 sandy hook parent, fark the NRA with a rusty hook.
 
2019-03-25 12:11:07 PM  
Yeah yeah, blame guns. My 23 various rifles and pistols haven't gotten up and killed anyone yet. Except for the Mosin Nagant. That things probably killed a few people.....

Alex Jones is evidence that God hates us and wants us to be miserable.
 
2019-03-25 12:13:01 PM  
I can't even imagine the pain of losing a child.

Ugh!

He let it slip that he was about to reveal the truth, they had to take him out.

So very sad. Those families have been through so much BS  :(
 
2019-03-25 12:14:13 PM  
Very sad.

This is worth everybody's time to listen to:

This American Life - Beware the Jabberwock Stories from the upside-down world where conspiracy theorists dwell.

"Ira tells the story of a guy, Lenny Pozner, who strikes up a conversation with a stranger in a bar, only to learn the guy already knows who Lenny is. And the stranger is furious with him. (5 minutes) "

"Producer Miki Meek picks up the story of Lenny Pozner, whose son, Noah, was killed at Sandy Hook. In the years after Noah's death, Lenny and his family were harassed by people who believed the shooting at Sandy Hook never happened - that it was all a conspiracy. Until one day, Lenny decided to fight back. (24 minutes) "

"Alex Jones spread the idea that Sandy Hook was a hoax, on his radio show and website for years after the shooting. He's probably the country's most famous conspiracy theorist. He's even had Donald Trump on his show. Reporter Jon Ronson travels to Jones' hometown in Texas, to investigate the story Jones tells about himself, and how he became who he is. "

You endured a pain that, as a father, is part of my worst nightmares.

Rest in Peace.

don't forget the parkland sheriff that had to resign the other week after an investigation into him was opened.

My child is now 26 years old, and while she has always had the knack of bringing her mother and I to the brink of insanity we love her with all our hearts and I could not imagine losing her.

No.  Stop.

This is NOT a conspiracy.

These are your fellow citizens who were left to grieve their slaughtered children while fighting a system bigger than them that was already well rigged against them at the same time they were being attacked by other fellow citizens.

If anyone did nothing to shield or support this man, your countryman, then this is simply a reflection of your values.  Not a conspiracy.

Just an utter lack of human compassion.

Nah, what's really going on is the Illuminati have contaminated gun oil with a chemical that's highly addictive (so you want more guns) and very slowly drives one to psychopathic violence.  Fortunately, it was created by the Reptilians and only a small percentage of humans are vulnerable.

America's love affair with guns has come at huge cost - a murder rate that is about 6 times that of comparable nations.

And what's the benefit that makes that cost worthwhile? There must be one. And it's not personal safety, as aforementioned homicide rate would indicate.

Or is it that you have sacrificed community safety for the illusion of personal safety?

As if the story needs any more sadness, Richman, the father, had established a foundation in his murdered daughter's name, that sought to advance brain, psychiatric and mental health research on the causes and effects of mass shootings.  He was also one of the parent suing Alex Jones.

One can only beat their head against a wall for so long before the pain becomes too much.

Thanks for making a thread about a distraught father killing himself into a thread about your precious man card. You should be so proud.

The main reason for the suspicion is that the father in case had many death threats levied against him, where the Alex Jones nutters have shown up at his home and job to harass him on multiple occasions.  Add to that the pending lawsuit against a mega-millionaire known for spewing hatred, and you have a recipe for a revenge killing...

Alex Jones was on Joe Rogan podcast about a month ago.  it was a 5 hour podcast!  yeah, i listened to the whole thing (over a few days).  he's basically saying, "yeah, my bad, sorry about the Sandy Hook stuff, take-y back-ies, we're good now, right?"

and then of course he starts in on "inter-dimensional time traveling child molesters" with ties to the Clintons / Trumps, etc.  it's amazing people not just listen to this crap, but believe it.  but yeah, he's mea culpa-ing the Sandy Hook stuff, now that it appears he's going to be facing potentially millions upon millions upon millions of dollars in the lawsuit(s) from the families.

This is miserable. The tragedy isn't over.

I am going to bite your trolling. See, if people have access to a thing that can be very easy to kill themselves, they will use that means first. Guns are easy to access, and when you are severely depressed, and on a whim of wanting to kill yourself, they will use that gun over say hanging themselves. Hanging you might not get right, and might be a painful death. Guns usually work out better for suicide. If it was harder to get a gun to want to hurt yourself, most of the time people won't even try to kill themselves. A lot of people don't plan to kill themselves, they do it spontaneous, something might trigger them to want to end it. If they have something that can end it quickly, they will use that method first. I know from personal experience with a very very close family member. If they didn't have any access to guns, they would still be alive. Guns culture is the problem, caring about guns more than the people who died from them is the problem.

Lucky for you, chances are a thousand times higher that father will lose his child to gun violence than you ever losing your beloved gun.

Persecution complex? Check
Anthropomorphizing inanimate object? Check

I'm sorry you're so weak you need to many guns, and you're so worthless you have to substitute "has guns" for developing a personality.

I mean, goddamn.  I have been in some pretty dark places, and definitely considered the big S on multiple occasions (don't worry, farkers, I am well-cared for and medicated), but I can. not, imagine. the pain of losing one of my darlings.  Especially to some farking bullshiat like a school shooting.
 
2019-03-25 12:29:23 PM  
I'm just amazed he didnt try to shoot Alex Jones instead.

Not impressed, just amazed.

Please let me add my name to the chorus of people telling you to go fark yourself with your pencil dick.

Your lack of empathy would be astounding to me if i hadn't lived through the last two years and seen countless emotionally dead people like you, slithering out out from under the rocks of American life to show how completely they misunderstand the purpose of civil society itself.
 
2019-03-25 12:32:29 PM  
I'm sure it must be equally disheartening to see how New Zealand dealt with their rare mass shooting: an immediate ban on assault rifles and high capacity magazines (like the ones Adam Lanza used at Newtown).

And ... another line of inquiry by the plaintiffs. Defamation, to be actionable, has to cause harm. One of the people involved killed himself. That seems like harm caused to me. (shrug)
