That thread has degenerated into usual OTW. This thread is about the guy.

There are only three permissible responses; choose the most appropriate to this situation:
a) "Yes, Sir!"
b) "No, Sir!"
c) "No excuse, Sir!"

There seems to be some interesting themes here in this thread.

One concerns the sound witnessed while a particular gun is mowing children down. It seems important in this case to identify what types of rapid bullet ejection machines are in use in this case. To be fair, when someone says a kid was squashed under a vehicle I always immediately think "I wonder what type of vehicle crushed the life out of the child, what options the owner had purchased, what sound system was preferred by the driver and whether the driver had big tits and a snatch that smelt of strawberries."

Different types of weapons are regulated differently. Perhaps the matrix of rules needs to be strengthened in certain areas, or perhaps they've been completely ineffective thus far. This is why identifying the types of weapons are important.

I see your list of zero tyrants, and raise you george III, muammar gaddafi, saddam hussein, and many more.

Facts are not welcome, just authoritarian leftist propaganda.

All the liberals are running around screaming about guns being the problem here. Divorce, child abuse, substance abuse, limited opportunities for 20-somethings, violence in public culture (TV, video games), ... those are the problems. What's really going on here is that this young man was so hopeless and hurting that he decided to take his own life, and he wanted to lash out at the dysfunctional family and community or society that caused his suffering. Guns are not the only form of violence and destructive behavior young people are engaging in. Instead of talking about guns, maybe we should be talking about what our societies are doing to our children to make them feel and act this way.

You have a Google+ profile. You don't count.

Besides you'll fall under the three-toothed redneck domestic terrorist category.

Then you'll probably have a new category for yourself.

Something like "Retired veteran, couldn't clear discrete mathematics paper, who went on a rampage because he couldn't play halo the night before the exam."

Iraq War Veterans were also listed in that Obama Administration memo, along with Ron Paul supporters and conservative extremists (i.e. three-toothed redneck white supremacist gun/bible-clinging militia teabaggers).

It makes you one of the last people to get one before the Democrats pounce on this opportunity to ban them.

Speaking of craziness - notice how the south is considerably more gun violent?

this happened in connecticut, which leans closer to gun control than gun rights. the movie theatre massacre happened in colorado, which is also in the same boat.

when was the last massacre in florida, utah, vermont, or alaska (states with the most pro-gun rights)? the worst you'll probably find is the 1986 miami shootout when 2 serial bank robbers went toe to toe with the FBI and lost. everything else is at best, general violence.

a lot of the stats from these studies don't add up. a basic public records request will show you that FL CCW holders commit less crime than your average police officer.


there aren't enough mass shootings to do any reasonable stats. However, texas i believe is on the top 15 and is a pro gun state. I don't know what makes a state pro gun. likely a good red correlation.

indeed. But this is going on in canada and the UK as well, and gun laws haven't softened.

Which suggests gun laws have minimal impact, doesn't it?

This anti-gun propaganda and scare tactics are not going to stop until all the authoritarian leftists are rounded up and put in camps (for their own safety of course, in like "gun-free, environmentally-friendly neighborhoods", with 20-foot razor-wire fences around them).

We could call them "LAST CAMPS" (Libertarians Against State Terrorism: Collectivist-Aggregating Maternally Protective Spaces").

I'd rather send them to the DPRK where the government doesn't allow such risky freedoms.

no. no system (except possibly the UK) experienced a "shock" in gun laws. everywhere is down.

however, in "free" countries, you have a completely different starting point.
