Some good points - but Michael Pascoe's editorial was excoriating and cathartic. If limited to this issue it's true enough that Australia "grew up" (Wilson has a point that we need to grow up on a bunch of other issues, but it's possible to respond to one issue in a mature way and to behave childishly about another). The gun-related violence through Australian history from colonisation to 1996 is bloody. Since then, it has been very limited.

True enough - but I think his point about the snobbish pontificating is probably on the money. Our gun laws are better, but we're hardly perfect (though I don't need to tell you thaT)

Not a mass shooting, but horrific all the same:

The 8 yr old girl would be alive today if she and the puppy had both been armed (pawed) with an assault rifle.

Guessing gun lockers aren't mandatory in that state?

Good job keeping your gun locked up there, dad.

Ugh.

(Also, an 11 year old getting in a violent argument with an 8 year old over a puppy. Gee, that's not an indicator of any future violent behavior to come, no...)

LMAO at "My gun does not compensate for my tiny penis."

There are a few arguments on that bingo card I've been fortunate enough to not hear yet. But it's fascinating to see just how deep the stupidity and lack of logic can go.

Some whacko on the internet is making threats against schools in Austin (presumably my university, UT-Austin) for tomorrow, using language copied from the Oregon shooter.

In all likelihood, this is some asshat doing a stupid prank. But many of my friends have been thinking about how important it really is to go to class tomorrow, and it's frustrating to have to think about that.

It really bothers me that, where I live, a weapon to senselessly slaughter dozens of people essentially for media attention is easily accessible to just about anyone. And that people have to take these sorts of threats as though they have some amount of credibility, because we know that individuals are capable of performing these massacres.

Charming . I remember kids making similar phony prank threats at my school after Columbine. 'Cause nothing says "funny prank idea" like a bunch of students being murdered!

Hoping it's just someone being a massive idiot in your case, too.

Wait, Marine Todd isn't real? Well crap.
*takes down Marine Todd poster*
*takes off Marine Todd shirt*
*tears off Marine Todd bumper sticker*

Ok, but seriously, I'm pretty right wing. But that Marine Todd stuff is the some of the funniest stuff I've ever read.
