Funny how quickly that Canadian attack 2 weeks ago faded from memory.

it's an odd shift that now all of a sudden some of these shooters are allowing themselves to be taken alive (Aurora, Florida, now Texas). I'd support the law going medieval on them in public to possibly curtail someone from crossing that line. I think the expectation of endless reverence, protective prison custody, state care, etc, could possibly weigh as an incentive for someone to do something like this, especially if they genuinely believe that would be a better life than they have now. Not the same could be said if they knew the penalty would have them flensed and salted before they were subjected to joint separations, limb crushing, and any other excruciating activity that medical science could accommodate, while keeping them alive and alert enough to luxuriate in the experience of being impaled, the old Persian way.

All those other shootings are literally a grain of sand on the beach of shootings in the US. The vast majority are done with handguns

Yes and most of those are gang bangers killing other gang bangers. Those guys are just saving us the money spent on incarcerating them.

Some lunatic gunning down children is a bigger issue for obvious reasons.

Yeah it's ******* ridiculous. Then we're asked "what's the big deal? You guys don't care about inner city violence and crazy lunatics who threaten to kill you have rights too you know"....

It's all a big deal...I've still yet to see our Govt produce realistic solutions though.

I’m not claiming to have the answers, but prayer is not “the best thing everybody can do.”

Well he used bombs too apparently so the real answer is to legalize bombs since only bad guys have them. The teachers should be given bombs too.

But seriously we all know both of these are incorrect.....I hope one day we reach some kind of common ground.

How are we going to reach common ground when the gun crowd refuses to compromise?

Even small changes are too much. Eventually y'all will get what you want, which is that no one feels safe so everyone is armed. I can't really see another path here.

That's the only thing people ever want to talk about. We've talked about it endlessly already here.

Yup, it's why I don't spend a whole lot of time in the gun related threads. It's two groups of people being shitty to one another, over-simplifying the other side's arguments, so they can use some childish sarcastic quip to drive a point home. They never go anywhere.

90hatch, USDM, and I all pretty much agreed on 90's version of "common sense" gun reform in the last thread like this, but it was all drowned out by the "Give babies guns and bombs" and "yeah, disarm everybody like Hitler did" back and forth amongst the zealous idiots.

I've said many times that simply taking guns away from people who are obviously unstable and making threats to hurt others would help a lot in these cases. The main reply I've got is that the rights of crazy lunatics who threaten to kill others shall not be infringed.

Now I'm just going to respond to absurdity with absurdity.
