Just Saw This - Happened This Morning



I'm out of pocket for a while, but this sure gets one's attention.

Edit: Holy, crap. They were rolling tape when it happened!! Horrific.
Edit: They weren't just rolling tape. It was broadcast live.

Edit: Noon update. This is all so sickeningly insane.


Edit. My god. What is the world is happening? Shoot people, film it, and post it. (CNN Story.) There was a mad scramble to get them taken down, but you know they are out there.

Think about sitting around the breakfast table with your kids and watching this happen. Think about the parents and loved ones of the reporter and cameraman who got to see their children gunned down on live television. Think about where we are as a society that this happens and it is not an isolated, strange, crazy incident. It’s daily life in America.

Now – think about the fact that NOTHING will be done to even DISCUSS the oversaturation of gun violence in our country. Think about that. The gun lobby is so strong that politicians—from both parties—won’t do anything more than talk about what a tragedy this is and how we need to do better. Bullshit. We need to have immediate, substantive, effectual discussions conducted and actions taken to root out the source of gun violence and prevent it. Our country is filled with brilliant minds, but we can’t figure out a way to reduce gun violence while balancing individual rights? We’re better than that. We’re better than this.

Watch the video. Turn the audio way up. I want you to hear the screams for the rest of the day. I know I will.

Again, it is the gun's fault. How in the world do you think you can make this world safe for everyone. We live in a free society. People are free to do bad things. The only way to prevent it is to not live in a free society. You may go anytime you wish. I will stay and take my chances. The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is to use a good guy with a gun.

You don't understand freedom at all.

9:16, I feel the same way about Planned Parenthood as you feel about the NRA. What has killed more people in the last 40 years? Scissors or guns?

9:16 all the gun control in the world will not keep a crazy person from obtaining a gun to kill...why can't you get that. Kids should not be watching the news until they are ready to hear the truth. You are correct...this is our daily life in America...and it touches us all eventually.

9:16 - Very well said. This country has a great big problem and it's time to recognize and confront it.

9:16. I highly doubt this criminal would have been stopped by any additional gun laws! If you're willing to murder, breaking a few pesky gun laws is hardly of any concern to you.

The reason our "brilliant minds" can't come up with solutions is because there is truly only one solution and your more radical political allies are all for it. A total repeal of the 2nd Amendment and a disarming of the people by force.

What shocks me is that the woman was only 24 years old. From the picture above and others online I would have guessed she was in her late 30's.

If you think gun control could have stopped this you're naive.

Knock yourself out, Mr./Ms. Alinsky wannabe. Don't let a crisis go to waste to vent your hoplophobic screed.

These senseless murders have nothing to do with the "gun lobby". Yes, it's tragic, but the same mayhem, or more, could have been perpetrated without any firearm at all.

Maybe you should stay out of the grownups' discussion forums.

9:16 - The real issue isn't guns, it's a society where people routinely choose to kill others. Gun violence is a symptom of a much bigger problem.

Thank you for stating the truth.

@9:16 So what is your proposed solution?
Because bitching about it and proposing more discussion is pointless.

Ernest T said...

So sad. This will probably change how reporters do live shots. Before, their biggest concern was someone behind them making faces and such. Now, they are worried that something like this might happen.

Something in me says by the end of the day the mainstream media will turn this into a racial discussion about black names and why he had to change his to a more racially neutral name to be a reporter. They will center in on that as the starting point to his downfall and blame white culture. We will hear how his black life didn't matter and by weeks end he will have a cult following.

Greatest paradox in today's America where the seas have parted in racial harmony after having elected the first black president--what is left of racism, is being cast as a one-way, white exclusive problem.

Why does no one ever suggest outlawing alcohol to prevent drunk driving deaths... Oh thats right because we believe people should have to face up to their individual responsibilities.
But for some reason this doesn't apply to guns.....
You know, they're just useless chunks of metal, wood, plastic and maybe some carbon fiber before they get picked up by....wait for it.... a person!!!

mzchief said...

Vester Lee Flanagan II aka Bryce Williams claimed "racism, gay-bashing, Charleston Church shooting and workplace bullying" as excuses for him murdering two innocent white people. You have to believe the ONLY "Black Lives" mantra played a part in Flanagan's feeling justified in murdering two innocent white people.

source

If you anti-gun proponents honestly believe banning guns would have kept Flanagan from murdering two white people, you're dangerously naive. England, a country with some of the strictest gun laws, has murders where people are hacked to death with axes and knives, bludgeoned with hammers and shovels. Making guns difficult to obtain, only means some other weapon will be used to commit murder, by those intent on committing murder.

Either you're woefully ill-informed or have gone full retard. The cities, in the US, WITH the strictest gun laws have the most gun violence.

The racist was the shooter for shooting 2 white people over race.
He is the racist!

BTW, in the video from his POV - its crazy how he first walked up and pointed that gun at her and held it there and no one noticed.

2:35, WRONG. Scissors have killed more people than guns have by far. Look it up.

Bear said...

1:31

I beg to differ with that logic. And show me where that can be proven. Actually, less guns on the street increases gun violence because the law abiding citizen will not commit a gun crime while a criminal does not care about any law.

My logic works just as well as yours does.

Bear said...

2:35

You need to do your homework. My research indicates approximately 33,000 gun deaths in the US each year (2013).

My research also shows approximately 1.06 million abortions in the US each year (2011).

The only think you got right was that it is not even close.

Wordkyle, that is simply not true. The Confederate flag has not been banned, not even from public buildings such as museums or at places such as the Alamo or Texas Capitol building or the state seal. It still hangs in many public buildings across the South.

Now there is a movement to remove the battle flag in places where it was raised in the first place as a symbol of the fight against civil rights for black people.

I know I've asked this before Wordkyle, but can you please, just for a day, stop being a lying sack of shit? Pretty please?

If you fire someone because of angry behavior towards other employees and you have to clear out the premises and bring in the police while that employee cleans out his desk and locker, you might want to red flag him and put his name on a list where he doesn't pass a background check to buy a gun.

Rage, Would it be all right with you if we banned democrats while we are banning the confederate flag? After all, the KKK was an offshoot of the democratic party, segregationists were democrats, Margaret Sanger was a democrat, Jim Crowe was a democrat and Robert Byrd was a democrat. I could go on and on but I think you get the picture.

The battle flag was just that, a battle flag. As far as civil war and slavery, riddle me this jokers. War starts in 1861, Lincoln frees the slaves (just the ones in the south ) in 1863. And he wasn't a fan of blacks anyway, wanted to send them back to their homeland. The confederate battle flag isn't about race, it's about leave me the hell alone federal goverment. If we are to ban a flag that flew over slavery for four years, we had better ban the one that for over slavery for over 150 years. Some of you should really pick up a book from time to time.
