Yet Thump and friends think guns should even be in the hands of less stable minds than 'just a hothead'...


A man angry after a domestic dispute opened fire in a Wisconsin bank, killing two longtime employees, then killed an attorney at a nearby law firm and a detective trying to set a perimeter outside an apartment complex before he was finally captured, police said. His wife was unhurt.

Be prepared for more fireworks?


North Dakotans will no longer need a permit to carry a concealed weapon after Republican Governor Doug Burgum signed legislation lifting restrictions, a victory for gun rights advocates that came a week after South Dakota's governor vetoed a similar bill.

The law, which takes effect on Aug. 1, mandates that gun owners only need a North Dakota driver's license or state identification card for at least a year before they can carry a concealed firearm in public.

Under current regulations, applicants must take a test to obtain a permit which entails fees of more than $100.

The measure, signed late on Thursday, was approved by the Republican-controlled legislature despite concerns over public safety if the state made it easier to carry hidden weapons...

The terrorist attack in London illustrates a point.
You cannot do anywhere near as much harm with a knife. Massoud managed to kill one policeman with his knife and immediately got shot dead himself. Imagine how many people he would have killed had he an assault rifle!

There was a terrorist attack two years ago, where two men armed with knives attacked tourists at the Bella Vista Hotel in Hurghada in Egypt. They both got shot by security guards, and failed to kill even one of their own victims. Not having access to guns seriously reduces the harm done by terrorists.

`Domestic violence` - with an AK-47. Right….

Two dead, four more wounded. Oh, and please stop calling 911.

Guns don`t kill people, domestic violence does. :roll:

Was it you?

Since they can't find the critter, I wonder how they know the bullet ricocheted off it, rather than a nearby rock for example.

As much as I'd like to say something, anything about this...I can't. I just hugged my son, a freshman in high school, a little longer tonight for those poor parents who will never be able to hold their babies again. We cried together.
I love you all, my friends. Be safe.

I get what you're saying but whether it's 18, 5, or 1 , it's still way too many.

Absolutely!

But, numbers matter in the political sphere, where this needs to be adequately addressed if the carnage is even to be slowed down.



OTOH, if the mass shooting took place in the Oval Office during morning debriefing, my tears would be crocodilian

Trump says that the issue is mental health, but that is not really true. Here in NZ, we are currently in the throes of planning ways to achieve better mental health treatment. Yet in spite of our admitted limitations in this area, NZ has an 18 fold lower rate of gun homicide per capita compared to the USA. And a tiny fraction of the mass shootings even on a per capita basis. The real issue is keeping guns out of the hands of those who misuse them. And the only way to do that is to limit their availability to almost everyone.

Mental health is of course NOT the issue, since the NRA defines a healthy mind as one that keeps on buying guns and a sick mind as one that wants to stricter gun laws or has ambiguously committed a crime using a gun.
Everyone is a responsible gun owner until they are not.
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.
