    I do quite a bit. ignore a lot as well. But, we're being very specific here. And I don't agree with your choices. There is a spectrum, not to mention shades of gray.

    Not sure I look at it quite that way. But they likely contribute to the problems more than they help. But they are not alone.

    Police officers are not civilians. They are government agents. You wanted me to distiguish between "criminal" and civilian, and I asked if you held the same standard. But you don't. You do not defend the civilian, but the State...the Authority. You will excuse cops if crazies threaten them; but what if the Cops are the crazies? Would you excuse the civilian defending himself against the cop? What if it's civilian vs. crazy? Do you support the civilian being able to take similar action against crazy? Or is it just the authority. Government may do as it pleases, but the individual not at all; that must be regulated and controlled.

    It didn't need to be explained, there are dogs who could understand the conclusion. You do not make the same distinction for civilians, by your own words.

    So much for mutual respect I see. Very well, if that is the way you wish to play, carry on...... and I will respond accordingly.

    Sworn to protect the peace.


    You wanted me to distiguish between "criminal" and civilian, and I asked if you held the same standard. But you don't.
    Yeah, I have this hangup with guilty and innocent. I apply different standards to them.

    You do not defend the civilian, but the State...the Authority.
    They are our representatives/employees, that we pay to provide a service.


    You will excuse cops if crazies threaten them; but what if the Cops are the crazies?
    Then I would not defend them.


    Would you excuse the civilian defending himself against the cop?
    In what circumstances?


    What if it's civilian vs. crazy? Do you support the civilian being able to take similar action against crazy? Or is it just the authority.

    I choose the people we hire and train to handle the crazies.

    Government may do as it pleases, but the individual not at all; that must be regulated and controlled.
    The government is our representative, and is bound to operate at our will, or we fire them and hire new representatives.

    The garbage you posted still needs to be explained.

    In his book, Frontier Violence: Another Look, author W. Eugene Hollon, provides us with these astonishing facts:

    • In Abilene, Ellsworth, Wichita, Dodge City, and Caldwell, for the years from 1870 to 1885, there were only 45 total homicides. This equates to a rate of approximately 1 murder per 100,000 residents per year.
    • In Abilene, supposedly one of the wildest of the cow towns, not a single person was killed in 1869 or 1870.


    Zooming forward over a century to 2007, a quick look at Uniform Crime Report statistics shows us the following regarding the aforementioned gun control “paradise” cities of the east:

    • DC – 183 Murders (31 per 100,000 residents)
    • New York – 494 Murders (6 per 100,000 residents)
    • Baltimore – 281 Murders (45 per 100,000 residents)
    • Newark – 104 Murders (37 per 100,000 residents)

    *****
    You know, it is actually possible to discuss this news event without resorting to lies. Please try it.

    I can't believe there's not a wiki on Carlton Berry yet.

    I've read reports that he has a misdemeanor charge for pot a few years ago and may have gang ties, but is not in a gang himself, but nothing solid yet.

    That;s what people always say when they're losing

    Just because you says so, doesn't make it true. So far, there is zero evidence for this in this shooting (and the mass shootings), but that doesn't stop the dishonest from insisting that ot's true

    Ok, prove it wrong. Show us the mass shooting in a police station or at a NRA meeting.




    I'm flattered that you think I cab read your mind, and I understand how desperate the "guns are good" crowd are to link GFZs to all shootings, but in a thread devoted to a non-mass shooting, there's no ewason to assume that a reference to shootings refers only to mass shootings.
    Right. Just stick with your nuance argument while the rest of the world moves on with common sense and helpful policies.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Not simple - simple minded

    I don't have to prove you wrong. All I have to do is point to your complete inability to support your own claim.

    Right. Just stick with your nuance argument while the rest of the world moves on with common sense and helpful policies.
    Right, keep thinking that the majority agrees with you (which is just another instance of you making a claim you can't support)

    Then who were you referring to when you said "a country fully in love with guns might have a cultural failure". Granted that there is a lot of glorified violence on videos and TV but much of that is certainly inspired by, or made by, Hollywood.
