    Awesome, absolutely hilarious at parts.

    Ok people, man up, step up if your post sounded even remotely like this:

    Then there are the tweets from the extreme right - these are the folk who believe our government has been corrupted and stolen and that the forces of evil are at play, planning to take over this nation and these folk are going to fight back and take a stand. And any moron like me who doesn't see it should...
    a. be labeled a moron
    b. shut the **** up
    c. be removed

    i feel this way for any murderer though, i feel that if they are going to be put to death, it should at least be a painful death such as hanging, being burnt in a fire, beheading, electrocuted, etc. these ways at least they will feel pain before dying, especially being burnt alive, thats my number one .

    i deff do understand though its not worth spending our tax payers money on keeping these guys alive behind bars, but at least kill them in a painful way, because when people are murdered in all types pf ways, for the ultimate punishment for the convict to be just an injection is way to easy of a way to go imo.
    Put a bullet in his head and let's move on. I could care less about torture. Why waste time? End him.

    A great counterpoint to the Jason Alexander essay: http://www.grumpypundit.com/index.ph...l-yes-we-will/

    I have been calling for such a database (as he mentions at the bottom) for a while. It makes no sense that there are not tools in place to help gun shops and law enforcement to spot potential problems and cross check weapons purchases with other vendors.

    George Costanza should stick to wearing fluffy coats and talking about jibberish because his facts are greatly exaggerated. You have to dig into the numbers to see what is actually the cause, handguns do far more killing by percentage than any rifle or other weapon, and before you all go telling my to ban all handguns, keep in mind that most handguns used in killing are obtained illegally and most murders are gang or criminal related.

    In 2010 - the latest year for which detailed statistics are available - there were 12,996 murders in the US. Of those, 8,775 were caused by firearms

    Pretty much obliterates Alexander's completely ignorant essay.

    You are absoutely wrong. With just a 9MM or a Glock .40 and standard 15 or 17-round mags just about anyone with the intent on killing another human can do the damage this ***hole did. The fact he was armed as he was and ONLY killed 12 astounds me as he obviously was not trained or didn't remember his training if he was. The simple fact that he was wearing a mask inhibited his sights and the smoke from the tear gas grenade didn't help either. I'm actually thankfull this ***clown wasn't proficient with his weapons or it could have been a lot worse.

    @ the ignorance ITT.

    Repeat after me: "Crazy people are crazy."


    It wasn't the semi-auto weapons used. It wasn't even the high capacity mags. It takes me approximately 2-3 seconds to execute a magazine change in my .45, & I'm not even exceptionally quick. Given enough mags, and a modicum of practice - a simple pistol could have done the same damn thing.

    You wanna prevent this type of crime with its massive casualties? Remove ALL firearms from the planet. Good luck with that.



    Again, crazy people are crazy.

    This data is beside the point. The discussion is centered around instances of mass murder where one shooter is able to kill many people at once, not isolated incidents where a shooter kills 1-2 people with a handgun. While it is understood that handgun-related deaths will be far more in the long run, there is not much that can be done on that front as handguns do have uses as protection for law abiding citizens, whereas an assault rifle does not.

    Really?

    http://www.newscientist.com/article/...nd-killed.html

    Overall, Branas's study found that people who carried guns were 4.5 times as likely to be shot and 4.2 times as likely to get killed compared with unarmed citizens. When the team looked at shootings in which victims had a chance to defend themselves, their odds of getting shot were even higher.
