Colorado Shooting


The Thriller

Well-Known Member
It had been a little while since a school, theater, Walmart, or Capitol building had been shot up all to hell so I was wondering what was going on.


Yet another event that almost never happens in the industrialized world happens again here. And we’ll do Nothing to stop it from Happening again here in a week or two.

Thoughts and prayers. This is getting old but sadly we don’t have the legislative courage to change anything.

The way you wrote this comes across as bad, my man.

It's like you were waiting for something like this to happen to make a post.

I think we all know things like this are gonna happen and are saddened by it. To me, your post comes across as super douchey and more you than those ****ing killed.

At least 10 dead...


We don’t have to live like this.

Just like our asinine health care system that can take away your health care for lack of employment or money.
Or the electoral college.
Or the lack of family support and paid paternity leave.

We can change our society. Just a few decades ago blacks couldn’t even vote. We can change our country for the better. Why don’t we?

We don’t have to live like this. No other industrialized country does!

It's inevitable with a heavily armed populace. Wish we weren't, and wish we'd work on it. I'm sure we won't.
Sadly, i think we all know you’re right. Republicans actively work to make society a less safe place because the NRA has funded them so well in the past and guns are such a prominent identity of their base and Democrats lack the intestinal fortitude and numbers in the Senate to be able to pass anything. Maybe Biden can at least issue an executive order or two? That’ll send Fox News into a frenzy.

We can ban assault weapons which is a good first step. It’s not a solve - there are simply too many out there, but at least it’s something.

Thoughts and prayers don’t mean **** - I would gladly tell the D’s and any R’s who aren’t handcuffed to the NRA to enact the filibuster on this topic.

I really hate to do this to you, but what's an assault rifle? Inside the pro-gun community they call them SBRs or Scary Black Rifles, because when people talk about banning "assault rifles" it seems like they are talking about the cosmetic characteristics.

For instance, this is a .22cal semi-automatic rifle.

It is functionally similar to this, a tricked out AR-15 that fires a .223cal round.

Neither gun fires faster than the other in general practice, nor is one incompatible with large magazine capacities. How do you ban one and not the other without using purely cosmetic features to distinguish them?

Are firearms (both the small ones and assault-rifle look-a-likes) so cheap in USA, that even those who work with minimum wage can afford them?
Does anybody know somebody who would buy a good looking/working expensive firearm instead of going to similarly priced vacation or something similar?

At risk of sounding like a dick, I’ll say it anyway. What are YOU doing to change it? Besides posting about it on an internet message board, of course. You are always so quick to jump on here and rail against anything and everything you disagree with. Are you running for local office? Are you meeting with your elected officials, pushing to get your ideals enacted? Or are you doing nothing more than whining about this country?
