Barfmaker: That whole week isn't going to work for me, I have a circumcision thread and an abortion thread going on and I'm expecting a sudden death in the family. Can we either push it back a week or move it up a few days?
AverageAmericanGuy: You'd only be able to predict something like that if you were the shooter or you had information about the government's conspiracy to fan the flames of anti-gun sentiment and fear.
yourmomlovestetris: "The next mass shooting will take place on Feb. 12, 2014, in Spokane, Washington, by an emotionally disturbed, 38-year-old white man who will kill 7 people and wound 6 where he used to work using a semi-auto handgun he purchased legally in-state......" ~Liberal Mediato which it added after a few-second pause:"Pleaseohpleaseohpleasewehopewehopewehope pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze don't let it be another person of color or mooslim and don't let it be a gun that was illegally obtained in a city with strict gun laws!! Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze! "
Creoena: I'm pretty sure the next mass shooting will take place October 1st once someone has to sign up for healthcare on a state exchange and realizes how much of a clusterfark it is
jcooli09: AverageAmericanGuy: You'd only be able to predict something like that if you were the shooter or you had information about the government's conspiracy to fan the flames of anti-gun sentiment and fear.do you doubt that there will be another mass shooting, or do you doubt that the government isn't behind them all?
simplicimus: Well, if you lived in Spokane, what else is there to do? At least on the other side of the mountains, you can write software to make far more people suffer?
CygnusDarius: Really? I had plans for that day.
VegetableManWhereAreYou: not unless there's a good guy with a gun in Spokane because we all know the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun
RatMaster999: Nope.In three weeks, I'll be shooting up my workplace with a double-barreled shotgun and a pair of cap and ball LeMat revolvers.
Bill_Wick's_Friend: Five months?Since America can barely go a week without a mass shooting, workplace shooting, school shooting, mall shooting or other random mass violence from gun-toting retards, crazies and fanatics I think it's safe to say there will be a mass shooting much sooner than five months from now.
semiotix: It depends on what you're calling a mass shooting. If you use the standard of "four or more people injured or killed by gunshots in one event," it'll happen about 25 hours after the last one. So we're already overdue, although quite possibly one has happened that hasn't been widely reported on.Source. (247 mass shootings in 2013, 260 days elapsed through today)If you mean the kind of mass shooting that CNN secretly fantasizes about, then yeah, February is probably about right.
TotallyHeadless: What's with all this "gun free zone" crap everyone keeps spouting? This last one just had the guy shoot a security guard and took his gun. Why is there this belief that the shooters target "gun free zones"? I don't see the pattern to support that assertion.
