So is that a reason to not even try?

We're never going to prevent the world from dying eventually, so we might as well not try to lower global warming effects and everything? Stop polluting our planet?

We're all going to die anyway, should we stop medical research and care, as that only elongates the inevitable?

It's becoming clear that this was homegrown domestic terrorism, inspired by Islamic extremism, and carried out with automatic weapons legally purchased right here in the good ole US of A.

A wonderful combination of shit

ongoing mass shootings thread

I would tend to agree with Mr. Headache.

Also, in Paris, you had several family members involved, brothers, and in the case of the female, a cousin of the mastermind. It's not surprising, when you think about it, that a husband-wife duo planned this without anyone knowing. What better way to evade the eyes and ears of the NSA and other authorities than to be sleeping in the same bed?

We'll outlaw beds before doing anything about guns

Must be quite the conundrum for your average right winger - 2nd amendment rights applying equally to Islamists (if that is what it turns out to be).

Confirmed. All four firearms were purchased legally.

No, of course not.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I've traveled around the world, walked in some dodgy areas, been in unsafe places, but it was only in the United States, the supposed most civilized country on Earth, where the fear of getting caught in a shooting entered my mind.

Sometimes, while visiting the States, I'd go somewhere, a public place like a restaurant, and wonder if we're all just sitting ducks for some lunatic with a legally-purchased gun. In New York this summer, where I spent 4 days to see a pair of U2 shows, I'd walk in somewhere and immediately take note of all the exit points, just in case I needed them. I'd formulate a plan of escape in my head.

Now you tell me if that's rational or not. I would submit to you that it's not. But that is where we are in the U.S. in 2015, and it's only getting worse because of inaction from so-called political leaders.

Yesterday in the middle of the shootout with the SUV, CNN had some law enforcement expert on and the anchor was commenting how disturbing it was to see military-grade vehicles driving up to the shot up SUV in a residential area. And the expert said to her, well we (police departments) have received a lot of criticism about how militarized we have become in terms of weaponry and heavy equipment but the reality is that our civilians are militarized, so there is no way the police won't be as well. And this was all seen as totally normal.

Instead of the candidates debating on how best to deal with ISIS I think they better start thinking about the NRA, it's a shame if you're a terrorist and you can't just go in and buy an assault rifle in any other country in this world like you can in the US, these others must be so jealous.
