Usually that's called a cry for help.  Who the fark sits around and watches someone play solo Russian roulette?

Well, it wasn't an emergency until he lost

The only witness, who just happened to be wearing a pair of nitrile medical gloves at that exact minute.

Hey, look over there!

Stupid teenagers. Joey, no don't! Yet they stare fascinated. Maybe they were playing with the gun too just for fun. Horrible and tragic.

This happened about 5 miles from my house. I was on the other side of town this morning, though.

If there's no other participants and no wagers it's not really Russian Roulette. It's just delaying the inevitable.

Use a Glock. Your odds go up to 100% then.

There is only one loser in a solo game of Russian Roulette
 
2018-01-02 05:16:41 AM  
I saw The Deer Hunter when I was ten, and promptly ran down the hall to vomit in the bathroom after the bullet roulette scene.

I don't know what "a teen" means. If it's someone under the age for legal purchase of firearms, I hope we see someone pay for this.

While I survived, I also lost the game.

Someone who either wants to die, or is trying way too hard to be "hardcore".

Either way, he succeeded.

I first watched that film when I was thirty and am still disturbed by it. You have some fun parents if they let you see that at ten.

Take that dipshiat out back and shoot him. His brother too.

I notice how people are blaming everybody but the stupid kid that did this to himself.  Not sure if it's "sad" or "tragic" but it sure is goddam stupid.

Most mass-shooters do not obtain their guns legally, and Lanza was no exception.

So short of a mandatory ban and confiscation to remove these guns from otherwise law-abiding owners, what legal measures would have prevented that shooting?

People who don't want to call the cops, who'll shoot the kid anyway, then bust everyone at the party. People who think talking him down means drawing the attention of a nutjob with a gun. People who think tackling him will draw even closer scrutiny from said nutjob with a gun. And people who really couldn't give a shiat and just want to see what happens next.

Think fast! Whaddya do?

I don't live in the USA so I don't really care what you Americans do.
I was just pointing out that a classroom of kids gets killed and everyone just shrugs their shoulders and goes "what can we do?"

But for all the biatching and moaning and thoughts and prayers - nothing is done about until the next tragedy then it's rinse, repeat, wipe hands on pants.

Didn't Lanza's Mom keep a number of guns in the house with her obviously disturbed boy? And he killed her to take what he wanted?

You've been a Farker longer than me if I were to log in using my OG account I used when I farked on a Motorola RAZR...a pre-Android RAZR...  Dammit, you know why.

And before some ass accuses me of using alts...I haven't used my other account since hashtag.acronym has been around.  I don't want 420 in my username anymore and Fark doesn't have a username changer...I'm 33 now, for 33 days actually, not 22 like when I started coming here.  I grew up.  It appears you did too.

/Yes, I really did turn 33 33 days ago.

People who legally obtain them and trade them for crack.

My parents took me to see Texas Chainsaw Massacre at the drive-in when I was 5.  Parenting was very different in the 70's.

Thought and prayers.

Out of respect to the victim, it's too soon to talk about gun control.

After your comment, I actually checked the pic to see if there was anyone drowning in the ocean in the background.  Not sure if that says something about me or about society.  Maybe both?
