If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will go on killing sprees

Nearly 60 people have been killed in mass shooting incidents in the last month:
That's a lot of killing. It's more than our combat losses for the same time period in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. It's no wonder people are starting to wonder what should be done about it. Thankfully, our leaders have the right answer. Make guns even more available.

  2. It's just real American folks engaging in a little gun hazing. Things will settle down after everyone is killed.

  4. So, when they yell "from my COLD DEAD HANDS" whose cold dead hands are they referring to?

    And don't forget the four Oakland PD officers killer in March, although their shooter seems to be the only one in the group who didn't legally possess his weapons.

  5. “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” - Albert Einstein.

    How does a gun nut sleep at night knowing that his pathetic need of a gun to feel safe kills so many innocent people? Why is the gun nut's fear so damned strong? Why does that fear outweigh all the death, pain and misery it brings?


    America is an amazing country, so full of promise and good. Why it can't get past the whole gun nut thing like just about every other western nation, i do not know.

    It's the "outlaws", dude. When you outlaw guns, only the outlaws will have guns. Those outlaws will be big, black, atheist gays who want to destroy your religious freedomicity, eat your babies and rape your women.

  7. It is sad how powerless gun freaks must feel. The old saw from theater that if there is a prop gun hanging on the wall of the set, it will be used in the play, extends to real life. If the mentally ill have lethal tools to express their failure as humans, it is only a matter of time for them to do so. The problem is these flawed people have been organized and goaded. Fuck you NRA, GOP, MSM. They blood of thousands are on your hands.

  8. Democommie,

    I am a largish black atheist gay who likes destroying religious freedomicity as a hobby, have a taste for babies and frankly, the women just fall for my boyish charm, particularly when I giggle like a japanese schoolgirl when tickled. What you propose sounds like utopia!

  9. Luckily, pre-existing untreated mental conditions exacerbated by severe economic stressors have nothing to do with guns going on rampages and killing the post-born.

  10. Apropos of this discussion, Seattle Tammy seems to be the only other person out there who was as outraged as I was by the latest dimwitted nonsense brought to us by Maura Liasson on All Things Considered: An un-interrupted two minute or so rant by some insane gunshop owner in San Antonio, Texas, going on and on about Obama and Marxism and how they’re gonna take away our guns ’n stuff. All of which went unchallenged, natch, because, y’ know, there are two sides to every story … except for the side of the story NPR chose not to discuss, which is, y’ know, the, uh, reality side.

    Is it time for the backlash-against-the-backlash yet?

  11. A conspiracy theorist might suggest these events are intentionally triggered for the purpose of creating a massive wave of anti-gun sentiment.

    As a liberal Frenchman, let me just say that I keep my guns because I'm afraid of my government. You'll need guns, too, if you ever hope to escort the king to the guillotine.

  13. If everyone had a gun, we'd be safer.
    That's the argument, boys and girls. Imagine if everyone did have a big gun. Would the mass murderers need bombs?

  15. Has any gun nut ever taken a moment to think? If guns are so necessarily, why has every other successful western democracy managed to get past the need for them?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Bruce, I don't know where you're from but I don't know of any democracy on earth. The US is a democratic republic which is slowly changing into a Socialist Republic. Where is a true democracy?

  17. Have you held a gun recently? (Unfortunately, I haven't because I live in a Frenchified country full of English types where guns are practically outlawed, and we can only read about American mass slaughters instead of having our own, darn it!)

    When you hold that gun, all heavy and solid, you know that you have POWER! You have the ability to dispense DEATH! right there in your index finger. That makes you equivalent to GOD! Or at least Thor, with the lightning bolts and stuff.

    You expect people to willingly give up their Godlike status? You think it's any accident that the words "gun" and "god" are spelled similarly? You can take my godhood from me when you pry it from my cold, dead, god-like hands...

  18. Dave von Ebers: NPR is still in the afterglow (nee stench) of the Bush era. It truly has been gawd awful for some years now--condescending, manipulative, bursting with bias and conceit. I have gone back to turning the digital dial to classical music and have no complaints. Let them eat radio!

  19. And now let me make another point, which I did not want to get confused with my previous one, because I'm confused enough as it is.

    These people who get a little over-enthusiastic with their godlike guns are America's equivalent of suicide bombers. Face it, when someone picks up a gun and begins blasting willy-nilly, they've effectively decided that their lives are over. Some top themselves, some are dispatched by police officers, and the ones who live through their irrational exuberance are fated to end their existence behind bars.

    What's the best way to stop suicide bombers? Stop them before they can do their damage. That's why America needs a law stating that every person should be required to carry a loaded pistol in their hands at all times.

    Think about it -- if you were a crazy person wanting to kill your boss because he fired you, would you try it if you knew your boss was going to be pointing a pistol at you? You'd have to yell at the boss first, because he'd have to know why you were killing him. And he'd have to be cowering in fear, and wishing that he'd never disciplined you for taking home that stuff that you really deserved, because you weren't being paid enough for the great job you were doing, and now that's going to cost him his life. But as soon as you started yelling, he'd be able to shoot you down. Where's the revenge in that?

    Same thing for all these cases where fast food clerks get shot because it's 11:04 a.m. and the breakfast menu is no longer available, and an angry customer wanted that sausage biscuit, and he can see that there are still three sitting under the heat lamp, and you won't sell it to him? He wouldn't start screaming and blasting the clerk and the assistant manager and the lady with the screaming children in the queue behind him if the clerk could plug him as soon as he raises his decibels!

    America needs to become a society where everyone is pointing a loaded weapon at everyone else at every moment. A society where everyone has a gun aimed at their head is a polite society. I know family dinners at my house when I was a kid would have been a lot more pleasant that way.

  20. Making guns more available as a solution to gun violence reminds me of the republican solution to the economic crisis.

  21. MJS: “True dat,” as the kids say. Except I do like a handful of locally produced shows on Chicago Public Radio, like “World View”; and I can’t help but like “This American Life” and, when I have the chance to catch it, “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me.”

  23. Stalin did 120K per month for 29 years, so what's your point?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Dave V-

    None of the shows you mention are the product of NPR. TAL (my favorite) is produced by Chicago Public Radio, World View by Pacifica, etc.. NPR produces the News content and buys syndicated shows. Their news staff is still chock full of bushites.

  25. Yes, Madison, it's either no regulation of guns or it's Stalin! And Marxism ans Socialism, and ACORN, and Anti-christs sleeping with lambs!!!!!!!

  26. Hmmm ... you do understand.

  27. General, Sir:

    Stalin got paid 120K (what is that in rubles) per month for 29 years? Well, he should have put some aside for health care so that he wouldn't die of a stroke (with pillow complications). Or are we talking about something else?

  28. Gen’rul:

    My question is, why do the Anti-Christs wanna sleep with the lambs? I mean, I could see if the Anti-Christs wanted to eat ’em raw, or boil ’em in a hot steaming kettle of Beezle-Nut oil. Yum!

    But sleep with them? That’s just plain gross.

  29. My Bro. in X:

    I dreamed last night I was shooting a machine gun, and I looked down and it was my penis. True story.

    They'll get my gun when they pry it from my fingers? I'll say!

  30. Aaron, you ignorant fuck, a lot of those victims were kids. Are you saying we should arm children.
    If guns were outlawed, there would be virtually no domestic shootings, and that's where most of the death toll occurs. But it's really academic. It's not going to happen.
    BTW, I banned you and warned you that if you responded to comments again, I'd consider it stalking. Did you forget that? Or is the stalking impulse just to strong? Don't answer that. You're banned.

    At the risk of seeming like a tattle-tale, Aaron Kinney is on the thread that Mr. mjs, Sir, just put up about guns and gun talk.

  32. General. Taking peoples guns away because a few people are apparently too stupid to know how not to use them is like forbidding reading because charismatic psychopaths (read as: politicians) use books to justify their psychotic behavior.
