Dunno why they need to send the cops out to deal with a tiny issue like this. I doubt the shooter even kills as many people as a typical flu season.

Just deal with it, we can't shut the mall down for something so minor

Trumpers get shot at a mall during a pandemic for 3 reasons :

- they dont believe in pandemics
- they dont believe in gun control
- they dont believe in universal health care

Theres 3 reasons right there they deserve it. Get shot at a mall because you're a farking idiot, who voted against gun control and now gonna go bankrupt paying for your gunshot wounds for the next decade.

g.fro: If you really think that owning a weapon causes violence or violent tendencies because "inanimate targets get boring", you are either an insane person or fantastically stupid.


That's not what I said.  I'm saying if you are violent person with violent tendencies, soldier cosplay could eventually provide the motivation your need to take things further.  Literacy is fundamental.

Either way there is no point continuing to talk with you.

And yet here we are.  However, I will abide and give you the last word if you want it.

But, because I am a masochist (or very bored), I will take the time to point out that inanimate targets do not, in fact, get boring. If they do, you are either shooting targets that are too big, or too close. You may not know this, but there are actually several Olympic sports which involve shooting, and those Olympians spend quite a bit of time practicing. As far as I know, none of them has ever murdered anyone out of boredom.

If you are the type of person inclined to perform a violent act, the fantasy of being a militia soldier can lead you in that direction.  I'm not saying you are one of these nuts.   However, just because a person is sane most of their lives, is not a lifetime guarantee.

The rest of your ramblings are hardly worth noticing. You seem to be one of the people I mentioned earlier who think improvised weapons, including IEDs, are somehow really hard to make and use.

They are somewhat more challenging than a gun for incredibly stupid/insane people like the ones that go on shooting sprees.  For the typical person unlikely to ever want to make one, they are not that complicated to make.  As I said, the pathology of these killers are different.  Some of these nut jobs fantasize about burning stuff down, others want to blow shiat up and then there are ones who want to use the toys they already own and/or are use to playing with.

I have said they are not and that even someone as stupid as the average Trump voter can do so. You have said nothing to prove otherwise. I am speaking from personal experience. You are just saying words.


Typing them actually - kind of the point of Fark.

Parroting that dumbass argument only proves a lack of thinking abilities. It's pathetic that dimwits accept it as received truth.


Putting forth the argument that inanimate objects are the source of violent motivation proves a pretty marked lack of thinking abilities.
-
That some people have motivations to attack others and find the most relevant tools at hand to do so is pretty well accepted.
The idea that the mere existence of a type of weapon is the causal origin of those violent urges, and a lack of that specific tool would eliminate that violent urge from occurring is a pretty novel reading of reality that would require some pretty extraordinary evidence. Which you don't have. So who is the Derper?

Compared to Trumpers, yes.  However, it is a dumb comparison for many reasons.  Look at the profiles of right-wing nut jobs who have went on a shooting sprees.  Using a firearm was an enabling factor.

Do you think Gabby Gifford's shooter had that capacity to build an IED and effectively had used it in an attack?  He probably would have been arrested for public masturbation had he been delayed one more day from purchasing a firearm.

I moved to Milwaukee in 1980 after college in the thriving metropolis of Oshkosh. I stayed with a friend's family for a few weeks before starting my job and getting an apartment in the Sherman Park area.

My friend's father was a Milwaukee Police officer and he said that Mayfair was the worst mall in the county for crime (and these were the days of Capitol Court and Northridge). Why? It had an upscale image and clientele but easy access.

I have always hated malls but occasionally had to go to one. I always stayed away from Mayfair so I don't know how it ranks compared to 40 years ago.

Too bad there isn't a Home Depot close to Mayfair. The last shooter we had a couple of weeks ago was captured in the field behind the Delafield Home Depot. Then again, he was from Fargo so maybe he was just looking for a woodchipper.
