Posted 14 Nov 2017 18:27

This just in....

...a gunman armed with a semi-automatic assault rifle and two hand guns has killed 4 people and injured 10 others at an elementary school in California. The attacks started with a dispute with a neighbor and ended with the gunman being shot and killed by police.

Too bad there wasn't a "good guy with a gun" to prevent yet another "crazy" person from killing random people.

Don't worry though...it was only four people. I know that it takes at least 26 deaths to warrant making a new thread....

We're still waiting to find out the skin color of the killer so we can decide if we should be sending thoughts and prayers or calling for tighter immigration policies....

He's quite literally a modern day Boss Hogg.

Now I already made an entire thread about Moore,

https://www.lushstories.com/forum/yaf_postsm2843107_Congratulations-Alabama.aspx

...so I don't think it's fair to dwell on the negatives.

So let's talk about the positive aspects of this.....

So he has a penchant for underage girls.... as Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler recently stated: “Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus."

Case closed. Boss Hogg was simply trying to fulfill his christian duty... by getting his dick wet in an 8th Grader and make another Jesus!

But at least hero of the people, Sean Hannity was there to stand up for what is right...

https://www.youtube.com/embed/XiLFiH1ARvo

I especially loved how he continuously referred to a 14 year old as being in her "late teens." Late teens? 14 is literally the second teen! Now of course on FOXnews when you mention anything bad that a republican does, you have to attach a couple "Hollywood" people onto the story... ya know.. just to be "fair and balanced". After all, the concept of "whataboutism" is kind of what FOX news is founded on.

And now that Keurig (among others) has pulled its advertising from Hannity's show you now have the pleasure of going on youtube and seeing a plethora of child minded red necks smashing Keurig coffee makers with hammers and baseball bats:

https://www.youtube.com/embed/tqA5RqGcafE

Yeah! Fuck Keurig! I'm a Tassimo guy anyway!

But the real bright spot in this story? Recent polls now show that evangelicals in Alabama are MORE likely to vote for Roy Moore in the upcoming election in light of the recent scandal.

Congratulations once again Alabama....

And whatever you folks do, do not watch this video!

https://www.youtube.com/embed/xa87kudAVFs

So let me get this straight...

Your most recent argument isn't that semi-automatic weapons don't kill people... It's that nothing can be done about it anyways so why bother even trying?

Am I getting that right? Is that the stance you will take the next time a Muslim commits an act of terrorism?

Let me ask another question. When the NRA is fucking you in the ass do they have the decency to at least give you a reach around....or do you just jerk yourself off?

I can see that you are doubling down on "stupid" with your current campaign against "crazy people." Just to save you some time I'll let you know how this story ends. You'll say something dumb that you read on the Breitbart forums and then I will use actual information to embarrass you once again and send you back to the scumbag trenches so you can use the remainder of your golden years collecting progressively bad ideas and trying to convince normal thinking people that AR-15s are somehow beneficial to society.

I was going to launch into a whole thing about the problems with your apparently current notion of simply collecting mentally ill people and not letting them have guns... but I'm getting the sense that your ideas about mental illness are probably more similar to those that would be held by a child who just watched a bugs bunny cartoon. So I"ll just wait for you to provide enough of the sub-intellectual rope to hang yourself with.

Oh, and by the way if anyone actually cares... A guy just has just opened fire outside an elementary school in California. 4 dead and 10 in hospital.

I don't think the problem is guns, myself. I'm from the UK and this year we've had a bomb at a music concert, a vehicle driven into pedestrians on London Bridge, and weekend partygoers stabbed with knives



I don't quite understand this argument. Are you saying that because people still get murdered in the UK you should just allow everyone to purchase semi-automatic rifles and hand guns? Do you think that the murder rate will go up or down if that occurs?

This argument is like saying "well if one person gets killed we might as well have 1000 people get killed."

And not to mention the increase in assault, robbery, and shootings by police that would occur if your nation adopts the gun culture that the US has. To say that guns are not the whole issue is accurate. To say that they aren't even part of the issue is not.

The media focuses on mass shootings because they are interesting news stories, but let's not forget the fact that the equivalent of 2 Vegas shootings occur every single day in the United States.

The assault rifle incidents are just particularly stupid because there is no purposeful reason why any normal human being would ever need to have one.

Then you didn't pay much attention in History class. Perhaps you should research the Battle of Dunkirk and it's aftermath.



If you are continuously going to bring up history and try to relate it to modern day, you will actually have to achieve more than a grade school understanding of past events.

If you want to use history as a reference then you need to learn the facts first... then use those facts to formulate an argument.

What you tend to do is to take an opinion that you already hold, and then use a very superficial and somewhat childish perusal of history in some kind of pathetic attempt to support your view. This kind of transparent shit works when FOX news is peddling nonsense to the garbage people, but among educated people you have to back it up with actual reasoning.

This whole childish attachment you have to semi-automatic weapons and your overly defensive insistence on them has long passed the point of what would be considered embarrassing for a normal person.

I suggest that you either post something of substance or else slither back to what ever other right wing manure pile you've been frequenting.

This whole thread was obviously made in an attempt to reduce the whole "gun issue" down to the issue of assault rifles but you still can't seem to help yourself from posting over and over and over and over... saying the exactly the same generic comments you've been making for the last half year.

Here's a tip. Read what people write.... Think about it. Write a response. Then log off and go back to collect your thoughts for a day or so before coming back and posting again. People will still probably still assume that you are an idiot. But at least you'll seem like a less annoying idiot.

Speaking of murder rates, as in murders per capita, I just found a very interesting chart comparing, not the USA rate to the Canadian rate, but the rates of each and every State and Province in the USA and Canada in one chart.

https://mises.org/sites/default/files/styles/full_width/public/statesprovinces.png?itok=nEUblz-X

1. WTF is going on in the North West Territories? They came in second to Louisiana and actually beat out Illinois!

2. And how did Nonavut get tied with my own home "Gunshine State" of Florida?




First of all... congratulations on addressing something outside the USA. I really think it is a step in the right direction (even if you did completely fuck the details once again).

Turns out that the Canadian Provinces don't stand out at all. They're pretty much mixed in, seemingly randomly, with the American States. The key word is "randomly". One would think that if Canadian gun laws were so effective that the Canadian Provinces would be clustered more or less together but certainly near the bottom. But they're not! Anyone care to explain why?

Umm... yeah. They kind of are.

Now a reasonable person would assume that when somebody posts a graph like that and makes specific statements about said graph, that they would actually do at least a little bit of research into those statements. But since you managed to misspell "Nunavut" I'm willing to bet that that was the first time you've heard of the place before.... I won't even get into the specifics of the differences between Provinces and Territories because I'm assuming that would be beyond your intellectual pay grade.

First of all, as a general rule, in intellectual discussion (which is what I'm assuming you're going for since nothing you've written would ever pass as mere entertainment) if you are going to use statistics as the basis for your argument, you kind of need to now how statistics work.

https://upload.lushstories.com/2071461444-stats.jpg

Now I know that expecting you to actually read anything is nothing more that wishful thinking so I'll highlight a few points that I think are relevant here.

Nunavut is a massive land area that is home to around 35,000 people. In terms that you might understand... take the land area of Mexico... oh wait... Is that too "international" for you? Take the area of Texas, multiply that by 2.8 and then toss in the population that is about twice that of Belle Glade, Florida. (Side note...Worst place I've ever been to in my entire life.)

So how many murders occur in Nunavut every year? Between 3 and 7 depending on circumstance. Are you really trying to take a massive geographical area with 26 communities...yes you heard that right, 26 isolated communities with "fly-in" access only.... and compare that with a geographical statistic that has actual statistical relevance? What's next...? Are you going to bring up the "rate of violent crime" among the Yanomamo peoples of the Amazon?

I grew up in a town of under 2000 people. One year we had two murders. The "murder rate" in my town that year was ridiculously high. Isolated incidents have a greater effect on murder rate when the population is extremely low. That is why we calculate murder rate in terms of death/100 thousand. Again... if you want to make a statistics based argument, then please understand how statistics work.

And I'm sorry...I seem to have forgot... What exactly is your argument?

Are you saying that if we allowed these small isolated communities access to AK-47s, the situation would get better?

Please explain your stance so I can formulate my arguments accordingly.

Here's what I have gleaned from your plethora of previous comments.

1) You like guns and you obviously have some kind of emotional attachment to them. You also seem to reflexively lash out at anyone who speaks against them.
2) You divide the world into "good people" and "bad people." You want to allow good people to have guns and bad people to not have guns. Correct?

I know you like to simplify what you feel other people's views are in order to put them in the "enemy" category... But could you please enlighten us all as to one...yes just one reason for a human being to own a weapon with the sole purpose of killing large amounts of other human beings?

If it's just your own personal enjoyment, then just say that. I think everyone would respect you a little more if you told the truth rather than continuously try to clutch at straws and try to manipulate statistics in order to prove a dead point.

Sandy Hook was traumatic for the entire country. I have no words to express how devestating this was to me, and I'm sure the rest of America. Which is why I'm so baffled as to why gun laws weren't drastically changed immediately following this tragic event.


I know that outside the US, Sandy Hook was seen as a huge turning point. Everyone thought that having someone slaughter children would elicit some kind of response.... But it really just made the zealots become more fanatical about their zealotry. I for one thought... "well if this doesn't do it...nothing will."

Instead of changes to legislation, we had conspiracy theorists come out of the woodwork and claim that the attack was staged by anti-gun forces looking to infringe on "freedom."

Now I understand why there is pro gun sentiment in America. It's money. Plain and simple. If there was no financial benefit, guns would be eradicated like the measles.

What I can't understand is why pro gun people think that anti gun people have to gain? The benefits certainly are not monetary. They claim that there is a "leftist agenda" for some clandestine purpose is simple laughable. Unless that agenda is to have less people affected by gun crime...

The sad part about this recent event is that the pro gun advocates are actually seeing it as a "win." That's right. After this guy emptied his clip into a room full of people, someone with a shotgun chased him.

Immediately, people forget about the 26 people that were just killed and immediately jump on the "hero with a gun" scenario.

Let's just ignore that fact that 100% of people that commit this type of crime fully expect to die. By all means, keep convincing yourselves that more guns will somehow dissuade suicidal gunmen from killing people. This isn't j-walking. These guys are choosing to die. They either kill themselves or they die by "cop".

Oh wait... but it's a mental health issue....

Of course that's part of it. But y'know what? You aren't doing anything to address that either! You're passing the buck to keep filling your pockets with NRA money while 11000 people die every year.

Mental health issues have been around since the beginning of time. The US doesn't have any higher proportion of "crazy" people that anywhere else in the world. The only difference is that you allow those people to have access to weapons that are designed to kill large numbers of human beings.

Last week, nine people were killed in New York. The next day barricades were put up to prevent vehicles from driving down the bike path. Nobody complained about freedom... They just did what common sense would suggest. Will it prevent 100% of terrorist attacks? Nope. But it severely decreases the chance of that type of attack happening again in that locale. If the person that attacked that church was Muslim you can be sure that Trump would have been calling for stricter immigration regulations. Nobody would have been sitting back saying "don't politicize this horrific event!"

The fact that incidents like this only deepen the divide between financial based ideology and common sense shows just how far the American political system has sunk into monetary dependency.

Take a ban on "semi automatic military style assault weapons" for instance. Several of the bluest of the blue states, those states with huge Liberal majorities, with sometimes rabidly anti-gun legislatures, tried to ban them. They had a bitch of a time even defining what one is. Eventually they defaulted to the old Federal 1994 AWB definition. But to get the law passed they had to grandfather in those already in public possession. The non compliance rates in California, New York, and Connecticut are estimated to be in the 70% - 90% range. And these are the most anti-gun states there are in the union. What do you think the non compliance rate would be in Texas?


You can't ban something in only one state. It has to be done on a national level to have any effect. I know you gun people love to make this argument, but unless you have actual borders between states, it doesn't work.

It amazes me how some people can continue to have such little knowledge of the logistics of their own country.

here's the reality. we had Columbine, Virginia Tech, Orlando, Las Vegas, Sutherland Springs, Sandy Hook, etc, and the stance is still the same.

And those are just the ones that make national news....

So far in 2017, there have been 307 mass shootings in the USA. (Meaning 4 or more people are shot or killed in a single incident)

Unfortunately, these incidents are so commonplace now that they don't even register in the National scene unless they are of the scale of the Vegas or recent Texas shootings.

The same night as the Vegas massacre, 5 people were gunned down in Lawrence, Kansas outside a nightclub with a semi-automatic weapon. I'm sure most people outside the University of Kansas had no idea it even occurred.

In 2016, 483 mass shootings occurred.

I try and understand the viewpoint of gun lovers, but it's becoming increasingly obvious that common sense is simply beyond their intellectual pay grade.



Next, there are a whole list of things some of us would like to do about our rate of firearms violence, like a mandatory death sentence for anyone who uses any gun in any crime.

Spoken like a person with a truly juvenile understanding of how criminal law works.

So let me get this straight... on one hand you are advocating an authoritarian, draconian government.... and on the other hand you say that you need military style weaponry to protect yourself from an authoritarian draconian government...?
