The last one is probably the “refused treatment”?

    EDIT: Oh, missed another injury. Hearing damaged student, taken to hospital. Collateral damage standing near the shooter, and even nearer the muzzle but to the side?
    They talked him into laying down the gun? Damn, that's impressive. I'm also curious to know what the shooter's motive and mental state was since they seem to usually be pretty immune to being talked out of things like this.

    Sounds like his target list was relatively limited, he shot one and named another that he then shot at (and missed). It sounds very personal and the classroom was probably just the best intel that the shooter had for locating both targets together, or locating either target at a given time at all.

    I'd have to disagree. It would create an equality of force which would discourage the vast majority from attempting anything like this in most circumstances.

    It is disparity of force that typically leads to mass-murder.



    The mere presence of guns does not disturb me in the slightest. In my regional culture, guns are regarded as common items and not objects of existential horror.

    In Colorado not too long ago a criminal went to a church and commenced to firing. that criminal was stopped by an armed guard at the church. The "Gun Free Zone" didnt prevent a massacre...an armed citizen did.

    Oh please. We both know that the shrieking harpies on the left were politicizing Gun Ownership while the bodies of those dead kids were still cooling. It's laughable that Redress would even attempt to get on the soapbox and preach to all of us how "liberals aren't politicizing the shooting". You didn't type your post with a straight face anymore than Redress did, so spare me the lecture k? Thanks

    Listen I understand you need to come to the defense of one of your pals and that's fine, but THIRD post in the original Sandy Hook thread (The dead bodies of those kids were still bleeding:

Maybe we can get it done before the next time sweet and innocent lives are lost.

    In the Aurora thread, PeteEU insinuated the shooter was "right wing" before a single fact was known on the first damn page

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...r-w-120-a.html

    Who knows, it is speculation. There has to be some link to the movie and I was only mentioning the two things that have been up in the media and web over the last week or so.. death threats against the director and the whole idiotic "Bane/Bain" bull**** from some on the right.
    DrChuckles page 2. The bodies were still warm.

    I'm figuring some right wing wacko from the reports. Kind of poorly planned and I'm sure they would favor better explosives. Possibly reacting to limbo
    Redress on their reaction to a mass shooting

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/gun-co...post1061299894

    My first reaction would be to pray there where no armed gun nuts who will want to play hero and make things a whole ****load worse. Nothing worse than a gun, too much testosterone and an inferiority complex all rolled up into one.
    First reaction is not about dead kids, but about "armed gun nuts" who will want to "play hero" and make it worse.

    There is mountains of evidence that refutes their statement that an armed civilian would "make it worse". So what comes in a distant second to the gun? I'm hoping the "killer" but that was never clarified. Redress, care to clarify why the gun is worse than the killer? Or maybe I'm wrong. Maybe you do believe the killer is worse. Dunno. Or maybe you want to convince us all to be like the Japanese, (Who currently live in a Police State) who pre WW2 were mutilating untold amounts Chinese at Nanking, and all over the rest of Eastern China. A Japanese Culture that is prone to cult/idol worship that recent history has shown can be used by Centrally Planned Governments to dire effect.

    The Radical Left was politicizing gun ownership within minutes of Aurora and Sandy Hook. They continue to do so RIGHT NOW.

    Daily Kos: Exploiting Sandy Hook: Will There Be a Link Between the NRA and Filibuster Reform?

    If exploited correctly, there is some legislative synergy here. On the one hand, we can threaten to pain anyone who blocks filibuster reform as a secret, or sometimes not-so-secret, tool of the NRA. At the same time, we can pressure anyone seen as pro-gun to show their independence from the NRA by voting for filibuster reform. However, to do so requires the mindset of being wiling to politicize tragedy and some people are reluctant to travel down that path.
    Maybe you want to live with your head in the sand. I won't. So spare me your sanctimonious lecturing.

    Yup. Libs/Dems are taught to never let a crisis go to waste to further the agenda.
