    Fired Employee Kills 6

    Breaking news:


    "Seven people including the gunman have reportedly been killed in a shooting at the MillerCoors campus in Milwaukee.

    Police responded to the business, which is now owned by the Molson Coors Brewing Company, on Wednesday afternoon following reports of an active shooter.

    Law enforcement sources have told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that at least seven people are dead.

    The gunman was an employee who had been fired earlier in the day but returned with a silencer gun and opened fire, police sources told CBS2. One source said he returned to the workplace after stealing the name tag of another employee.

    It looks like he was an "honest citizen" before today with "legally owned" guns


    My own company fired an employee two years ago that was a gun owner...this is the threat of guns we all live with.

    It's not the guns fault. The peraon who stole a badge in order to commit the crime is fully and solely to blame.

    ???

    Gun's fault ?

    Who said it was ?


    The gun sure made a difference to how the disgruntled employee settled his dispute though.

    .
    Well if it was a legally-owned gun...why didnt the laws stop him?

    I realize you have stated you'd like to ban all guns but since that is impossible (see: war on drugs, prohibition)...why do continually propose more and more laws restricting guns?

    A few more laws may stop a few more shootings...but as Bum's daily postings prove...they may also protect a few more lives.

    I see no moral or public safety advantage on your perspective.

    "Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free."

    It's not up to the govt to protect you when you have the ability to protect yourself. If you act the victim, you may end up one.

    To stop incidents like in the OP
    Doh!


    It's not up to the govt to protect you...
    Yes it is, absolutely 100% yes it is

    Why do you think there is a police force ?

    The Supreme Court has ruled police do not have a duty to protect the citizenry from harm

    You have written many times you want all guns banned. Are you denying it? Yes or no?

    How many people did the police save in the shooting today? Not 5 or 6. Do you carry a cop around with you? Do they appear instantaneously? Yeah...that's how stupid your answer was.

    And I'll erroneously and self-indulgently paraphrase Einstein again: the definition of stupid is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

    We have gun laws, we have cops. Didnt stop shooting.

    how about our society some how fixing males instead? (Hmmm....yeah, surgicallly would probably actually make a difference! LOL but that pun isnt what I originally meant.)

    Hmmm then what do they do with their time if not protecting us ?


    You're speaking of an individual policeman in an individual instance.

    I am speaking on a ruling the Supreme Court made that directly counters your idea that police have a duty to protect the citizenry.

    Yes, you have now made a positive claim. I challenge you to substantiate it or withdraw it

    The police can't be everywhere

    But where they exist, what do you think they are doing if not protecting us ?


    And I'll erroneously and self-indulgently paraphrase Einstein again: the definition of stupid is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

    The first part was wright, you were erroneous.

    And when was it done a first time, and what was the result ?
    Oh I forgot, you were quoting in error.



    We have gun laws, we have cops. Didnt stop shooting.

    how about our society some how fixing males instead? (Hmmm....yeah, surgicallly would probably actually make a difference! LOL but that pun isnt what I originally meant.)

    Well Veritas is poster on here who says that increased sentences would work and stop gun crime.

    Myself, whilst not rejecting his approach, feel that a ban on guns* is the answer.


    *note not all.
