I think it is obvious why I respect police despite some of their less respectable members and actions, and really don't care about the wannabe heroes who think having a gun makes them Wyatt Earp.
    Yep, this incident proves it. Let's confiscate all the guns from legal gun owners and throw out the Second Amendment.

    Thanks for calling that to our attention, Tererun.

    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Authorities recovered an assault rifle, a handgun and hundreds of rounds of ammunition from the suspect, who was said to be 23 years old and from North Carolina.
    I do wish North Carolina would keep it's own crazies.

    But the NRA is an organisation for gun owners and since this gun owner (legal or not) committed a clear terror act by attacking random people... does that mean the NRA is a terror organisation?

    A loaded question fallacy, and now a guilt by association fallacy. Going to go down the whole list of argumentative fallacies?
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Gee, I thought "liberal" CCW laws like the ones in TX were supposed to prevent incidents like this.

    Well there's quite the extrapolation. Since you're against "throwing out the second amendment," surely you must then be in support of giving every American a rocket launcher. Even children.

    Hey this game is fun.

    Well, you may think the game is fun, but that's because you've got the rules screwed up.
