JohnCarter: In this photo from the AJC (Atlanta Journal) looks more like cops waiting for donuts rather than looking for a shooter.Also I guess the brown shirt and blue shirts don't get along well or they are waiting to take the field for the second half of the shooting[media.cmgdigital.com image 615x410]
Babwa Wawa: Why anyone would assume that the location of Cobb County is common knowledge is beyond me.
Lorelle: ChaosStar: Lorelle: ChaosStar: Lorelle: Click Click D'oh: Lorelle: Funny, it didn't stop the shooting that occurred today, nor did it stop a mass shooting in 2010 that resulted in 3 deaths.You had to go back to 2010 to find 3 firearms deaths and you are really going to trumpet this as the failure of firearms proliferation to create safety? Meanwhile, in Chicago...If you're going to claim that more guns = less crime, then why is crime and the number of shootings so high in Chicago??Because it's the criminals that have the guns?I know you knew this and were just being intellectually dishonest, but I figured I'd answer anyway.You believe that every gun owner in Chicago is a criminal??I do not, and again, you knew this, but please continue with your logical fallacies in an attempt to make your assertion that guns are bad valid.Some days, it's like shooting fish in a barrel. :D
MythDragon: Bit'O'Gristle: upndn: What qualifies as a mass shooting? How many people must be shot or is it how many shots are fired? Do people have to die? Hell, it took me half my life to figure out the difference between "a couple" and "a few". I always thought "a mass" is more than "a couple" or "a few" but in regards to shootings, I'm not so sure./I need my coffee/I have always been in the understanding that anything above 4 or five is considered "mass". As far as i know, there is no fixed number, but generally, i have seen 4 or 5 to be the line.To further elaborate on this, two people shot is company, and three shootings is a crowd./If you shoot four or more crows, it's called a 'murder'
Babwa Wawa: KingKauff: When the first mass shooting in a bar or church happens, THEN you can spew the "South-hate"But I thought the whole point of that law is to prevent mass shootings.Armed society being polite society and all that sh*t.

Cymbal: That's woefully inadequate. Everyone should be armed with tactical nuke wristguns w/ silencers and infrared scopes

d23: Cold_Sassy: d23:No good guy with a gun EVER stops the shooting spree. It wasn't a comment on the "gun free" workplace law. Get a grip.Sorry, but you are incorrect: http://www.buzzfeed.com/ryanhatesthis/10-potential-mass-shootings-tha t -were-stopped-by-someone-witI know it's buzzfeed but with all the anti-gun derp you've been spouting throughout the thread, it probably won't matter. All are verifiable.I have been corrected about this point multiple times. And I stand corrected. I didn't personally know of any situation where that happened and it has nothing to do with Mother Jones.And I don't spout "anti-gun derp." I point out people that are spouting pro-gun derp. I think there is middle ground between "gun grabbing" and Mad Max society, unlike many black/white thinkers.
TNel: Yet he only bought her a gun and not a gun and "gun purse"
mudpants: rebelyell2006: willfullyobscure: MBrady: tommyl66: Another responsible gun owner in the land of the free and the home of the Braves...show me ONE gun shooting where the shooter was a legal gun owner who was level headed, sane, and was legally able to own them.Show me ONE car accident where both drivers were sober, legally licensed, insured and didn't make any mistakes or take any risks.Well, this is Georgia, so I am sure there are plenty of instances of multiple-car accidents after someone hits a deer, or a fallen limb from a tree, etc. Or an at-fault pedestrian or bicyclist starts an accident, etc. In the entire state of Ohio in 1895, there were only two cars on the road, and the drivers of these two cars crashed into each other. There was no mention of drugs or alcohol and there were no licenses or insurance available at the time
DarkVader: KingKauff: Babwa Wawa: Alpha Sierra Foxtrot: Really? We're going to start the South-hate this early in the morning?It's not necessarily "South-hate". This type of thing might not surprise people given Georgia's recent activity on gun control (or lack thereof).When the first mass shooting in a bar or church happens, THEN you can spew the "South-hate"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knoxville_Unitarian_Universalist_church _s hootingToo late.
someradicaldude: This is simply what they call "Tuesday" in Chicago, whereas it is a very rare occurrence in Georgia./Know the airport (McCollum Field) and Fedex Building well, drive past them all the time.
Bit'O'Gristle: I have said this before, and though some don't agree i don't care. My opinion is as valid as theirs. Here goes.The guns are out there, there is no getting them back. The world is full of some really farked up people who are just waiting for trigger to set them off to go on a rampage, and kill innocent victims. You have a choice. Choose to be able to defend yourself, and your family / property, or ...choose not to. The police (as i have been one) generally get there too late to do anything about an active shooter. The guy usually guns himself before they get there. So be a victim with NO WAY to defend yourself except cowering like a biatch and hoping not to get shot, or ...running and hiding. Those are your 2 choices.My daughter is in college, and i bought her a gun to carry in her purse. She now has the option to choose not to be a victim, but...able to defend herself. At least now she has a chance to live, instead of being gunned down like a dog shivering under a table. And isn't it a valid right to be able to defend ourselves? Is there a more natural law that applies to us more? If a guy comes up and slugs you, you are going to use your fists and give him what he just gave you. You're not going to stand there and let him punch you over and over. Why should someone with a gun be any different? In fact, it should be MORE applicable because this person could kill you, not just give you a black eye. The right to defend ourselves is not only a law, its a natural mental stand that one takes in the face of danger.Hate all you want, but the guns are out there, bought legally or not. The choice to have the ability to defend yourself is totally up to you. If you choose to not have a gun, i totally respect your choice, if you choose to have the ability to defend your life, or other lives, i respect that as well.
MadMonk: Looks like that "Guns everywhere" law is working out as expected.
jehovahs witness protection: Funny how people yap about the south while ignoring all the shootings in the utopia known as Chicago.
gnosis301: jehovahs witness protection: Funny how people yap about the south while ignoring all the shootings in the utopia known as Chicago.Get off that cross you nailed yourself to.
MBrady: HotWingConspiracy: MBrady: tommyl66: Another responsible gun owner in the land of the free and the home of the Braves...show me ONE gun shooting where the shooter was a legal gun owner who was level headed, sane, and was legally able to own them.So you advocate for mental health screenings prior to being allowed to own firearms, right?If it'll keep the wackos from getting a legal gun, sure.
RobotSpider: Hey, we're even privatizing our postal-shootings!U-S-A U-S-A!
Contribution Corsair: In before gun arguments...too early for popcorn really...so I'll enjoy the reasonable debate with my breakfast.
fireclown: And I'm sure it was faster, timlier, and less expensive than a USPS shooting.
MrHappyRotter: Six people injured, and the police are expecting more? Why don't they get off their fat lazy asses and stop any more people from getting injured?
