My friend at work suggested we just find a way to make every American's skin bulletproof. That ought to fix it.

If this is ISIS related or inspired, I can only hope that the assault rifles were purchased legally so that we can finally send Wayne Lapierre to Guantanamo

You're telling me this guy got into an argument at the party, left, and just happened to have some friends hanging out with assault rifles and pre-made pipe bombs ready to roll? Doesn't sound very plausible
I also heard something about one of the shooters being there early to stake it out to "make sure a certain person was there" which sounds a lot more plausible and makes more sense with the "left and came back" theory.

Yeah, and they came back with explosives. It was premeditated.

Sounds like the lady gun market has excellent growth potential.

Also, I'm torturing myself by flipping between coverage of this on Fox and MSNBC. Anyone who thinks these channels are the same is an idiot.

That's really disturbing. Good lord.

Unfortunately people just point to the fact that crime happens in cities or states here in the U.S. that have strict gun laws as their argument against that, and therefore, according to them, it won't matter how strict our laws are. They forget that the reason that happens is because those strict laws aren't uniform across the nation, like they are in other countries.

Exactly. Like I said a few pages back in this thread (after the last shooting, no less), all of these killers were taken down by law enforcement or they killed themselves. At no point have any of these situations ended with some random passerby pulling out their own personal gun and going after the shooter. So where people are getting this idea that arming average citizens is the solution, I do not understand.

Ohhhhhh, would that we could do something like this. If we could make the NRA legally responsible somehow for all of these shootings, and take down the top brass that way, that would be beautiful. Not gonna happen, but a girl can dream, right?

News confirmed Farouq Saeed Muhammad as the suspect. They interviewed his father already and he was supposedly a devout muslim.

Oh my favorite part of this always has to be the Chicago debate.

"Chicago has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country"
"Yeah....and Indiana has some of the laxest."
"You think people are crossing into Indiana to purchase guns? You can't do that."
"Yes...?"

Yeah, I had a similar debate with some guy on another site once, too, and he refused to believe that was a thing that happened.

I mean, people go to other states to obtain fireworks that they can't get where they live, for crying out loud. Why wouldn't they do the same with guns?
