Again? This is becoming a weekly event?
when a neglected individual reaches the peak of suffering and does something unacceptable, everyone is mimicking some kind of pathetic indignation and making loud throat noises but when governments kill millions then everyone ignores it or tries to justify it, but it`s ok so long as the tv doesn`t make us feel guilty.
What they are telling you is that you should be afraid of everyone and should trade your freedom and soul for the illusion of safety that the machine is prepared, in all its generosity, to offer.
i thought this was very interesting.
@ijesuschrist, Yes, gun control has zero correlation, availability of guns is what it is about.
People are so adamant that stronger gun controls will do nothing, no, doing nothing will do nothing. It is nothing but speculation to claim tighter gun controls will do nothing, the only way you can confirm or deny that speculation is to try it.
Yay fo hand guns, single bolt action rifles and even shotguns, but high powered assault rifles and any grade of machine gun is a ridiculous right. These things are only of any use at a firing range, so why should they be allowed off the range property?
I am sure you will hear about the Commies in time for you to go down to the range to pick up your guns. What other reasons are there? Tangling with a gang or an organized crime syndicate? I don’t see any situation where taking them on with an AK47 is a better option than calling the cops, and you should be able to hold out in cover with your regular guns until they arrive, if not then no grade of artilery is going to help anyway.
It should cost a frgn mint to get permission to keep such weapons off the range property, in securing it from unauthorized access, in licensing and in regular psych tests you have to provide, but also the penalties for someone accessing it that shouldn’t should be intense enough to make you reconsider wanting to keep it off the range property, and if you do then you should be so highly motivated to secure it properly.
@caoimhesweeney, yes of course those factors influence the lives of a young adult or kids, but like i said, it all begins at home. I believe that if you educate your kids well enough factors like the ones you mentioned wouldn’t affect so much i mean not to a point to where tragedies like this can occur.
Possessing a gun in your home for protection isn’t a bad idea if you hope never to use it. Having 6 guns though, that’s not for protection, but an obvious self-inflicted paranoia, an obvious over-protective thinking and definitely not a way to grow with your family.
Side note. Why own a bulletproof vest when you’re going to kill yourself? I suspect guilt.
The only mental illness I see is a global paranoia that is going to spread again and lead to more violence. A lot of people talk about parenting and culture, but with no direct viewpoint, because everyone wants to protect their own butt.
Second side note. The global meditation day for bringing a positive shift was 3 days before the incident. Didn’t work!
it’s time we get serious about changing; not only gun regulations, but mental health treatment, and our understanding of evil in the world.
On guns: we need o ban assault weapons NOW. I wish we could use the figures in popular consciousness, like Batman, to motivate change.
Next we need to examine insanity in our world & society, as well as evil. We need to be able to not blame all insanity, and use mental illness as a scape goat for human evil. By doing that we reinforce the false notion that all insanity leads to sociopathy. A person who hears voices, or is bipolar, is not devoid of reason, rationale, or empathy.
Joker and Carnage do exist in the world. We must learn how to identify them, and not confuse the Venom’s of the world as one of them.
