Okay, I admit it. I was fooled into believing this was a genuine account. However, it has now become clear this is a parody. It has to be. The posts in this thread alone show the goal here is to show what it would look like if "Percy" from The Green Mile were active on a message board. It is that kind of character, and only that kind, that would put the victims on trial.
Iam also guessing most in this gun crowd making these comments have never faltered in believing the Bush admin about 9E. So I am wondering...how did it go when the victim's families were contacted to gripe about how wimply the passengers and pilots were to let some hobos with box cutters hijack planes? Did they receive the criticisms well and immediately sign up for the Sheep Survival Course?
This stuff is too freaking bizarre.
What is known is that predators really enjoy themselves when the prey can't bite back.
Market economics indicates that the more risky a venture, the fewer people will try it.
Put those together, and it becomes apparent that there will be fewer shooting rampages when the shooters begin to realize that the chances are good that the prey species has learned how to bite back, ie, shoot. Also needed is the elimination of the ignorant awe the gun-grabbing elitists feel towards guns, an awe that is shared by the ignorant children who wind up doing these rampages.
Back in the old days, before diseased liberals started succeeding in their push to disarm America for an easy takeover, people had guns. Big deal. Little Joe Jr wasn't going to take Daddy's gun to school and impress his classmates with it....their dads probably had bigger guns. So, when everyone had easy access to firearms...diseased liberal shooting rampages didn't happen.
That's a damn hard historical fact for you people to get past, now isn't it?
Assuming the deranged person is under professional care, if his shrink feels he's a threat to others, he needs to be locked up. Or the shrink can share some portion of the blame for what happens.
Alternatively, potentially violent patients, including those reliably on their meds, need to be tattooed inconspicuously on their foreheads, with one of those international "NO" circles, so legitimate gun dealers will be aware of them. Using transparent but UV flourescent dyes would do the trick.
Alternately, we remove their fingers. They can have substitutes back when their mental health is restored.
What can't be done is to violate the basic human rights of the rest of society because some people can't grow up. There's a specific and practical reason the Second Amendment guarantees individual gun ownership. Read Federalist 28.
