When you can’t trust a 12 year old girl to be a “good” person with a gun

Today

At least one innocent person was killed during a mass shooting inside a Kroger supermarket in Tennessee that injured 12 other innocent people, police say.

The shooter is also dead from what police believe was a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Collierville Police Chief Dale Lane said at a Thursday afternoon press conference. The identity of the shooter, or any connection he may have had to the supermarket, is unclear.


Police were initially called to the scene at about 1:30, said Lane, who described the victims' injuries as "very serious."

Collierville is about 30 miles east of Memphis

The killer did business with the store as a third party vendor.

The woman he killed was 70 years old.

I’m sure the families of the victims will be comforted by your disingenuous thoughts and prayers.

Pretty low effort post insinuating America’s gun problems aren’t caused by guns.

This caught my eye, although I know it's somewhat common across the pond:

Police across the country have now been given the rare order to carry firearms as a precaution.
"Due to the serious incident in Kongsberg where several people were killed and injured tonight, the police in Norway are temporarily armed," the Norwegian Police directorate said in a statement on Wednesday.

I am just saying this evil is not confined to America. Nor will the absence of guns stop it, if a person is that evil they will find away. Even in the socialist Scandinavian paradises.

I unfortunately got to witness genocide first hand back in the 90's I have seen man's inhumanity to man with my own eyes, if the Bosnians were armed the Serbs couldn't have did what they did. There wouldn't be the widows of Srebrenica. Guns are a tool, a tool that can be used for good or evil-- It all go's back to the riddle of steel. Or even Full metal jacket, what did GSGT Hartman say, it's not the gun that kills it's a hard heart that kills--- In this case the hard heart used a bow and arrow

Nobody said this. It’s in your head that people are saying this.

Obviously this was your ultimate point of making this thread. It’s sort of insensitive and in poor taste. You’re hyper-focused on taking a politicized gun debate from our country and making an example out of another country. What does socialism have to do with this? Nothing. But to your point about their gun laws, count up the total amount of “evil” deaths here or there. Adjust for population sizes. Come back with an argument.

Your opinions informed by awful experiences abroad shouldn't be shrugged off as being in poor taste. And thank you for your service, MM.

The vast majority of gun violence in America, to include suicides, involve handguns. There's little appetite in the country to limit or confiscate handguns from law-abiding citizens. And we know criminal-types aren't giving up theirs, either. It's a tough social issue for sure all around.

Now you know that’s not what I said, hence why I didn’t even quote that portion.

Ongoing Mass Shooting Thread #3... that's right, a third thread. Because 'Murica.

Guns are tools that help bad people kill lots and lots of other people very efficiently. Get life efficiently then a bow and arrow. Imagine this person with an AR-15.

There also aren’t too many good guys with guns able to stop bad guys with guns, so really, this “tool” is pretty lopsided in what it helps people accomplish.

Which is mass death rationalized as some warped notion of “freedom.”

Guns are awful and cause far, far more harm. They should be strongly (well?) regulated and licensed and insured and we should be able to sue the fuck out of gun companies.

And the point of bringing up Norway was obvious and sophomoric in intent.

Yes. And that poster once tried to make the comparison after, like, a stabbing in China that evil people will find a way to kill no matter what and we can’t stop them so why even bother?

if that guy in norway had an AR-15 instead of a bow and arrow the casualty list would have been probably an order of magnitude worse.

and if the bosnians of srebrenica had rifles they would have maybe held out a little while longer until the serbs shelled their positions into oblivion anyways and the survivors would have met the exact same fate that they did historically, except with way more casualties from artillery among the women and children.

yay guns.

I was scheduled to fly the same day some British Islamist terrorists tried to use some Gatorade to blow up a plane, therefore my opinion on sports drinks is more valid than yours
