    Looks like my bringing up "going postal" has become a lot more relevant than the points posted by racists and Islamophobes.

    I suppose the fact that only security was allowed to have firearms in this complex is completely lost on you....that such a policy is the equivalent of doing away with the 2A.....that the policy didn't prevent a damned thing.

    And how did that security work out for twelve of our citizens today?

    you're unfortunately making the same mistake as many others: identifying and organized enemy force that has an interest in attacking you're military installations is more than reasonable, even if it proves not to be them.

    If someone bombed a Sinhalese military installation it would be rather stupid to take offense over someone suggesting it was the Tamils

    Not particularly well. Then again, that's why I prefer to arm myself because security isn't necessarily there when you need them to be.

    Considering the fact that at least two of those shot were armed, you know "security", I have to wonder how many would be dead if 1 out of every 2 persons on site had been carrying. You know, like the incident yesterday in NYC where police shot two bystanders while trying to corral a person suffering from a psychotic episode.

    Just more acceptable collateral damage in the war to preserve absolute gun rights without any oversight whatsoever. If you were really up on real world issues, you would realize that unauthorized voting is a much bigger threat to our freedoms (the 13 here notwithstanding) than a few guns in the wrong hands.

    Unfortunately for what you think, Islamic extremism is a very real thing, they have a clear interest in engaging us targets, and a habit of focusing on soft govt installations.


    Most gun massacres are carried out by rightwing gun nuts -- like the guy who did this one.
    1) I have no interest in turning this into a partisan pissing match.

    2) We are talking about a high profile military target. Most mass shootings do not involve "high profile military targets"


    But conservatives don't remember those since they don't fit their stereotype.
    Actually I have no problem recognizing the issue of extremism in the right, and have been rather open about that the entire time I've been on this board. But that doesn't negate the reality of islamic extremism, the fact they actively seek out american and US targets, and have a clear strategy of targeting soft military installations.

    However, this does raise the following question: do you want to actually discuss the issue or engage in some petty, partisan pissing match? Because I have no interest in the later

    I can tell that part of the Bill of Rights is eating away at you; probably keeping you up at night causing you to pace incessantly, back and forth, back and forth, as you prattle on and on to yourself...
