    Damn man, this poor state can't catch a break. We've had a pretty ****ty summer with the fires here where I live and now this. The radio hosts on 104.3 where that girl worked all sounded completely devastated today.

    As for banning guns, we didn't ban planes after 9/11. We didn't ban roofing nails, gasoline, and fertilizer after Oklahoma City. This was a single lunatic who wanted to go on a rampage and likely would have carried it out by any means necessary.
    but when the trumpets blew again and the knights charged, the name they cried was "Stannis! Stannis! STANNIS!"

    Dumb people gonna do dumb things with or without guns.

    LOL @ Anyone who thinks that gun control will prevent future shootings. It's about the same as speed limit signs. I still do 10-15MPH over. Bad people will still get guns and do bad things.

    How about we work on some dumb control.

    Even after many, many years of being on the internet, every once in awhile I'll see a stupid post that'll take my breath away. Just when I think I've seen the highest level of stupidity, somebody will raise the bar. I saw this post on another board and thought I'd share it with you. I think everybody should see this special level of idiocy.

    People in the USA are blessed to live in a country that gives them the opportunity to arm themselves to protect themselves and their families. But for some reason these people did not take advantage of that opportunity, and their recklessness and arrogance cost them their lives and the lives of their loved ones. This is a tragedy that could have easily been avoided if the victims had taken the proper preventative measures, but they didn't and that was their choice and no one else's.
    There you have it folks.

    nothing like blaming the victims for being victims. I don't think many of us ever see a need to bring a gun into a movie theatre.

Automatic weapons are banned, it takes a federal license to own or sell them and this weapon was semi auto.

    The tear gas and high capacity drum mags, I agree with you on, there is no need for the average citizen to own those but truth be told you could dp just as much damage with a 10 shot mag loaded rife of any caliber. It would take less than 2 minutes to discharge 10 - 10 shot clips.

    People have been killing people long before assault weapons became available to the general public, what the problem is and always will be are the mentally unstable, you cannot and will not ever be able to identify and help all of them.

    I have a lot of friends will kinds of different firearms including myself, my dad and my son. None of us view them as a "who's got the bigger dick" or "let's all go out and play Rambo". I hunt, I fish and I enjoy my right to bear arms as well as my right to free speech (as this message board will attest) and never have though about using any weapon to take a life. Once you cross that line you are beyond reason, once a person decides to take a life without provocation they are going to use any and all means necessary to accomplish their task, the only thing you can hope for is to stop them before they succeed.

    As I said in two or three other threads about similar things, violent crime is near an all time low in the US. It is lower than it has been in over 40 years, how can you tell me that gun control and regulation is the problem?
    If you can offer a valid reason why an ordinary citizen might own an assault rifle, please post it.

    Just saw the Dark Knight Rises, best movie of the year by far. I thought the Avengers was great, but this was epic.

    No offense Nub, but this isn't the thread for impressions of the movie.

    Forgive my spelling. This was sent from my phone.

    Well, it's pretty obvious from this whole incident that the guy was pretty batty.
