It's not guns that kill folks - it's the dickheads carrying them. Unfortunately the yanks will never change - and I'm sure more will tragically die in horrible incidents like this

A sick society that loves its guns more than its children.

Can I suggest this latest be a new topic. These sad and horrific events need to be plugged into eveybody's consciousness.

Done.

Looks like the Police shot him. Quick justice but little justice for the victims, their families and friends.

They were overdue for their next college mass shooting.

 

Pointless, but expected.

 

+140 college shootings since Sandy Hook.

In this country $pecial interests$ through lobbyists rule. Follow the $$.  Many senators are in the NRA's pocket. 

When it comes to passing a bill someone always attaches a rider so that their unrelated cause and their palms get greased.

To pervert Kennedy's famous speech, they have warped it around to "Ask not what you can do for your country, but what your country can do for me"

Disgusting

Out of tragedy...

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/oregon-shooting-family-of-heroic-chris-mintz-who-was-shot-seven-times-raise-thousands-for-his-a6677546.html

Proper hero. The article says he was shot 7 times and had both legs broken in his efforts which no doubt saved a huge number of people from being killed. His family have set up a fundraising page to cover his medical bills etc, it's over $150k in the first 5 hours :thumbsup:

Oh, and...

I'd like to see a comparison graph next to the one above showing money spent on stopping US based terrorism to money spent on gun controls.

One would be billions, if not trillions and the other would be negative thanks to the NRA!

Great speech by Obama, would be nice if people listened for once...

 

President Obama's furious reaction to another mass shooting in...

President Barack Obama is furious. Watch as he addresses the nation after another mass shooting. At least 10 were killed and 7 injured in a shooting at a community college in southwestern Oregon.

I was on a cruise in Alaska last year and we met two Texans at dinner. They were severely anti-Obama (I won't repeat some of that) and said if he tried on the gun control thing, there would be a civil war. Sheriffs have been quoted saying the same thing.
How do you speak sanely to people like this?

Not to wish anyone dead in particular , but it would be poetic justice if the head of the NRA was taken out by a lunatic who is later caught and proclaims "I wanna thank Wayne LaPierre and the NRA  for making this all possible"

No it rarely happens like that in real life.

Holiday in San Francisco June 2014, we walked past a car park entrance. By the entrance was an official sign to the effect that the noxious emissions inside (ie car exhausts) were a potential risk to the health of pregnant women. I couldn`t help thinking that a perfectly legal gun carried by many US citizens both sane and psychopathic would present more of a risk to the health of all.... and that maybe they should get their priorities right...

I would like to see a TV  game show. With say 1000 people on an island with all their persoanl guns. Last one standing wins a million bucks. No doubt they would fill all registrations within a day.  Would make great TV. Prime time.

We stopped being a Democracy the instant private money was allowed to fund political races many years ago. 87% of the country wants out of the gun mess, more or less, and that only goes so far against the probable billions spent keeping the 2nd Amendment alive and well. And, since many here are not capable of reading very well, they come up with their preferred version of it: "Guns, A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."  And, courts have now started following the nuts' needs rather than the dead folks needs. I had a much higher opinion of our country when I was 26 and a CPT in the Army doing nasty things with CBR and Special Weapons than I do now at the age of 70.

I can't understand how much energy the government can dedicate to pursuing VW and their "evilness" for lying and conning the public but steer clear of properly fixing their murderous gun policies. What a "f... u..." sense of values.

 

More Americans have died from guns in the United States since 1968 than on battlefields of all the wars in American history.

Wayne LaPierre actually used the words 'God-given right' for Americans to have guns.

I didn't realise He was there when the Constitution and the Amendments were written.

There you go. Learn something every day.

Perhaps one other cause is that we do not graduate everyone from simple High School here. i.e. something like 67% of our students graduate. That number will vary -D.C. perhaps 55%, Baltimore something like 60%. We are talking HIGH SCHOOL here, not university. Makes for a lot of cowboys. NOTE: My numbers may be off by 5% since I have stopped listening and reading about our abysmal education system and parenting failures. What is the point in knowing more?

I'm sure i read somewhere, that children under ten years of age in America. Have been responsible for more deaths by shooting in the last ten years , than terrorists!!!!!!!  Apparently , things like Mom's so cute pink pistol, has been found by inquisitive little fingers, and thought to be a toy. It has then been used to shoot a sibling, parent or friend.

Obama wants to introduce background checks on all gun purchases to ensure people aren't psychos or federal criminals banned from owning guns and other politicians want to fight this 'tooth and nail'? :blink:
