Jon Huntsman for President
Here is a witness statement from a civilian gun owner who helped detain the criminal at the scene
Vote John Schnatter (Papa John) 2012!
Do you know of any? Or is that not really what you mean at all?
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Moderator's Warning: Perhaps you didn't note the warnings earlier in the thread.
Let me repeat them again.
Take the partisan insinuations and drama to another thread. Another comment on it and there will be thread bans
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
I know this isn't the thread to discuss this in, so I will lay off the topic.
⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
Restricting responsible adults from experiencing media so that a few deranged individuals won't see it is pointless. If you're so screwed up that you can't understand a video game then you're going to crack eventually anyway.
If you walk into an Opera house and see that most of the audience consists of rich elite would a reasonable conclusion be that Opera makes people rich? No, of course not. Wealthy people have both the means, and often the desire (due to better education, etc), to watch Opera. Similarly, deranged idiots have both the means and the desire to play video games and watch violent movies because they enjoy embracing their fantasies. ie: it's not that video games produce deranged idiots, it's that deranged idiots are attracted to video games.
In any case, the requirement for restricting free expression is the incitement of "imminent lawless action". Video games I have seen do not meet this requirement. Well you could always establish a totalitarian regime or something, but I assume that's not what you want.
I initially thought the gunman might have just been a very disturbed person randomly shooting people, then I considered he might be a deranged conservative, then I considered he might be a deranged Democrat, fed up with what he perceives as the Democratic Party being a second wing of the one elite party.
Who knows? Any information on him?

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
