  1. You look like an ###Why would today be any different?
  2. cats are dumb
  3. tdnoss notes last 200 pages?
  4. I think it sums up the lunatics following the daily life of George Zimmerman. Why are you and others drooling over any negative press the guy gets so bitter? He was found not guilty and justifiably so, anyone that found themselves on the receiving end of a rage filled teenager would have reacted the same way and saying he should have fought like a man as your response is
  5. Haters are gonna hate. He was sucker punched for no reason by a thug who has a history of getting into fights get over it.
  6. You are not just passing a law. Passing laws to prevent crime usually accomplish very little. If you want to pass a law saying mini-blinds need breakaway cords and if you don't you face a steep penalty, those are pretty easy to enforce with very little cost. The law I assume you are talking about will cost 10's if not 100's of millions of dollars to support. There is a risk/reward that needs to be considered and if you cannot prove that it will be effective you won't have much luck passing a law that costs that much, effects that magnitude of people, to prevent so few deaths and has no proven backing that it will even work.
  7. What are you proposing? Take Newtown for example, or this past mall shooting, idc. What are you proposing that would have prevented either incident?
  8. You can't even take 20 minutes off from being a complete #######? You don't think the anti-gun people out there are within their rights for expressing their frustration with this? I mean....come on. We want to know what it will take for America to rethink its stance on gun control because if Sandy Hook didn't do it, we don't know what will. Forgive TG for expressing his emotions through irreverent choices. Guys like us are just....we're ####### tired of this ####. We've been tired of this ####. For decades. It's tragic and it sucks, but I for one am exhausted at typing out compassionate words of sorrow when these shootings happen every other week, with varying degrees of tragic horror. And yet we do nothing. Nothing. Great posting, bro.It certainly is. Two people are dead, and Five Digit Know Nothing is bragging that he "took candy from a baby" because he thinks (wrongly) that he's "won" the gun debate. ####### disgusting. FBI records have identified 186 mass shootings since 2006, half of those involved someone killing family members - so cut that number in half to 93 mass shootings over 7 years. A mass shooting in this context is where 4 or more people are killed. The reason I am excluding the family related mass shootings is because I think it is safe to assume the FBG's that are so vehemently anti-gun either do not have a gun in their family or if they do that they are responsible gun owners and are at far less risk of being victims of these incidents. This is what the outcry is about correct? That they could become a victim to one of these senseless killings? That comes out to 1 mass shooting every 4 weeks if we were to spread it out across that timeframe, call it 1 mass shooting a month. It's already been beaten to death how rare these events are when compared against other incidents (struck by lightning, having a fatal peanut allergy, etc...) and the probability of anyone reading this being a victim to one of these incidents is too miniscule to even calculate. Why do you think these rare events are given the media's attention? Could it be politically motivated? Ratings? A combination of the two? How often do you think a gun is used defensively? If you had to guess a ratio, how much more frequently would you guess that a gun is used defensively compared to when it is used in a mass shooting? 2:1? 10:1? 1,000:1? 10,000:1? more? Why do you think these instances are not given the same media attention? Politically motivated? Ratings? Maybe because it happens so many times a day that nobody would care to hear it on the news - i.e. it is not rare; it is not news! Tim likes to bring up Israel for comparison purposes. Does he realize that those that own guns in Israel typically carry their firearm with them where ever they go. Do you think he realizes that it is common for people to open carry everywhere, in large public areas? Does he accept that this might be the reason why there are fewer mass shootings in Israel? Yes there are more guns in the U.S. there are also more restrictions on who can carry where (aka gun-free zones). If Tim really wants the U.S. to be more like Israel, why is he so against removing gun-free zones?
  9. It was like taking candy from a baby, look at these softballs to start off the thread starting with the 5th post - my they are getting aggressive these days:
  10. Mall was a gun-free zone - do you want to pass something to make it even more illegal to bring a gun there? Weapon used was a shotgun - are you proposing to ban shotguns? All I hear is a lot of whining about how nobody will accept your solutions. Perhaps if you were propose something that had some weight that directly influences this event somebody might listen. "Lie back and accept it." Why are you laying back and accepting the peanut allergy epidemic?!? - literally thousands of people are dying each year from peanuts!
  11. They do? First off Israel only has a 7.3% rate of gun possession (both legal and illegal) Second, to receive a gun license, one technically needs to meet two sets of criteria. First, the basics: A gun owner must be a citizen or a permanent resident and speak some Hebrew. The person can’t be a minor and can’t have any physical or mental problems hindering him from operating a firearm. Second, one must show cause to carry a weapon, a privilege limited on paper to about a dozen categories of people whose work conditions are perilous enough to justify carrying a firearm. Third, in 2000, there were approximately 400,000 legally owned firearms in Israel, the majority of them handguns, and the number of illegal weapons stood at about 150,000. (61.5% compliance) Ten years later, thanks largely to the new strictures, the ratio was reversed: 180,000 firearms were legally licensed, and more than 400,000 were illegally obtained, most of them assault rifles like the M-16 and the Galil, stolen from the Israel Defense Forces. Score one for gun registration in Israel!!! What is your source for the bolded? Because it contradicts everything I've been reading and been told. If your source is legit (not from the NRA or pro gun sites, which I do NOT trust) then I will absolutely reassess what I have written about gun registration. the Jewish Chronicle

  14. Because mass killings are inevitable and statistically insignificant and nothing that you suggest we do will have any impact in the grand scheme of things. Even if you suggest something and manage to get it to pass, you will still not be happy the next time a mass killing takes place. Then you and people like you will then push for the next item on your agenda and so on and so forth...
  15. As much as you dislike the NRA, they aren't always wrong.
