    Re: 5 dead, suspect in custody in classroom shooting at Oikos University in Californi

    Arrgggg.

    The shooter was korean. I wonder if the people shot were, too. Which is why I am bringing it up.....

    Obama said soemthing about the Zimmerman situation because it was getting WAY out of hand due to race and media and sharks smelling blood and maybe he thought speaking about it would ease tensions. WHO KNOWS??
    Now we have this situation and Obama needs to zip it except to give condolences.

    I'm just saying that the response you've gotten is perfectly in line with your OP and the posts you've made thereafter.

    Sure. I agree with you. But this happened today. Wait until it's been a while before you get outraged that there's been no hearings.

    Also, I'd like to point out that Congress HAS had hearings about school shootings and violence in the past. It's not as though they don't react to these sorts of events. Whether their reaction is effective is debatable, but I would say the same about most Congressional hearings on such matters.

    I have seen far more school shootings than I have shooting by a NHW captain in self defense after being assaulted by a teenager. Rare my ass. School shootings happen multiple times a year. That is far far far too much. Congress should have had multiple hearings on this by now. This shooting happened today, but it isnt the first.

    That happens today already - without guns humans would invent another tool to do the job.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    it's quite the deterrent when you know the person you might attack has the resources to adequately defend himself eh?

    it's incredibly sad that people flip out and kill people like this... it's even sadder, to me, knowing he should have been put down like the dog he is by someone defending their lives and the lives of those around him... but wasn't... more frustrating than sad, to be honest.

    unlike his victims, he'll live out the rest of his life in health... and I find that unacceptable.

    (And thank you. Right back atcha.)
    It would have to be safe politically and where one can take a stand and not be called on it. Those who depend on popular vote tend to avoid offending huge audiences. The pro steroid voting block is relatviely small and safe to offend.

    huh?

    humans have been killing humans since there have been humans.... and guns have been around quite some time now ( since the 12th century).
    hell, this nation was founded by the gun.
