Guest Post: Gun Control? No, Drone Control.

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by John Aziz of Azizonomics blog,

The terrible massacre committed by a mentally-disturbed man in Newtown, Connecticut last Friday has prompted lots and lots of calls for gun control in the United States, as well as some calls for more help for the mentally ill.

There are some problems with both suggestions. First of all, the evidence shows that certain “treatments” for the mentally ill — specifically, SSRI antidepressants — are associated with shooting sprees.2006 study in the UK showed that antidepressants can cause severe violence in a small number of individuals. It is possible that increasing the screening and “treatment” for mental illness may result in more incidences of severe violence. (On the other hand some therapies like psychotherapy, music therapy, and art therapy might help certain individuals, but these are almost certainly less profitable for big pharma…)

But what about gun control? There is little doubt that in the coming years the gun-show loophole will be closed and Canadian-style longer waiting periods will be introduced. Semi-automatic weapons may well be banned. Buyback programs may be attempted. The Supreme Court might well even be stacked to achieve a majority that interprets away individual gun rights.

But America already has huge quantities of guns, far more than anywhere in the world:

total-gun-ownership

 

The vast majority of America’s 285 million guns are in Republican states, which are unlikely to be disarmed easily, even with an overwhelming Federal consensus. Some might even try to secede from the Union.

And as the experience of many other countries including Britain and Australia shows, criminals and those with violent intent will still be able to get guns (the only people who will be disarmed are the law-abiding majority).

This trend is only likely to grow in coming years as technologies such as 3D printing make it possible for anyone with a 3D printer and an internet connection to potentially print a gun (and eventually, bullets):

Imagine an America in which anyone can download and print a gun in their own home. They wouldn’t need a license, a background check, or much technical knowledge, just a 3D printer. That’s the vision a cadre of industrious libertarians are determined to turn into reality.

 

Last week, Wiki Weapon, a project to create the first fully printable plastic gun received the $20,000 in funding it needed to get off the ground. The project’s goal is not to develop and sell a working gun, but rather to create an open-source schematic (or blueprint) that individuals could download and use to print their own weapons at home.

 

The technology that makes this possible is 3D printing, a process during which plastic resin is deposited layer by layer to create a three dimensional object. In the past few years 3D printers have become increasingly affordable, and just last week the first two retail stores selling 3D printers opened in the United States with models ranging from $600 to $2,199.

How is it possible to regulate that away? Ban 3D printing? Ban the distribution of gun schematics? Costly, damaging to liberty, and ineffective. The failed war on drugs makes this very clear — prohibition doesn’t work. Guns — like drugs — are a reality that society cannot just eradicate by passing laws. The mood has changed — America will try gun control. It won’t work — and may just make things worse. I wish we lived in a world without guns, but we don’t.

But there is a way forward. Very many of the mass shooters in the last two decades have a history of antidepressant use. If we want to stop mass shootings, maybe we should look at that.

And if we value life and are opposed to violence against innocents, why do we demand action when 27 innocent Americans die, but not when larger numbers of innocent Pakistanis, or Afghanis or Yemenis die?  One drone strike in Pakistan killed 69 children, dwarfing the impact of the Newtown Massacre. With predator drones now in American skies, how long until the “collateral damage” (remember — the NDAA declared the entirety of America as a battlefield) eclipses the Newtown massacre? Or how long until a foreign power or terrorist group hacks into a predator drone (technically feasible) over America and uses it as a flying bomb?  And how many more terrorist attacks against America will be fuelled by anger derived from the civilian casualties of the drone wars?

Obama might cry for Americans in Newtown, but where are his tears for the Pakistani and Yemeni children he has slaughtered? And what about for the many victims who died as a result of thousands guns shipped by the US government to the Mexican drug cartels via Fast and Furious?

America might be ready to implement gun control. I wish America was ready to implement drone control.

Australia suffered 13 mass murders between 1981 and 1996. In the 16 years since our gun law reforms: zero. No more excuses please America.

It's just not going to happen here, particularly when this country is effectively occupied by an alien, counter-liberty ideology.  If we're going to ban something here in the states, it's going to be today's liberals.

I ask: Is there anything more vile and repulsive than watching a despot shed crocodile tears over the murder of American children?

The US has more autistic and mentally unstable people than the rest of the planet combined.  All of this has happened in the last 25 years.  You don't suppose 38 vaccines before 2 years of age, prescription drugs, gender-bending chemicals in pesticides and plastics, and food additivies have anything to do with it do you?

We've got theft laws, and those don't seem to be doing much.  Friggin' banksters and the "entitled" crooks like Corzine steal right in front of laws.  Laws aren't doing a damn thing, and gun laws won't do anything either.

Drones or guns, it doesn't matter.  Race, religion, creed, gender, ethnicity - it doesn't matter.  Like I said on Friday, CHILDREN SHOULD BE OFF LIMITS regardless of their ethnicity, religion, background, gender, etc.....  If a bunch of idiot adults kill each other, so be it.  But the minute adults start taking out the young, either in a school shooting or by dropping bombs on their neighborhoods, humanity is doomed.

Sickens the shit outta me when helpless children are vicitmized.

Tyler, 

The D-Bag top poster of this thread, with over 30 negatives, should be reprimanded. I think a D-Bag avatar should be given to posters-for a week-who get over 30 negs for a comment. It will help us police the fools without silencing them (you know, what liberal fvcks do to us, but cry about if we try to restrict them, not that Id want to silence them as they are comedy gold).

I think Corzines pic would suffice.

Do not let them confound you.

Guns are not the problem or the solution here just like full auto rifles were not the problem of or solution to 1920 and 30’s gangsters. How many gangsters handed over their Thompsons when the 1934 NFA boondoggle was implemented?

The Connecticut whacko was a ticking time bomb that was packed tight over time with a variety of emotional and likely pharmacological explosives.

There are many like him and they do not need guns to act out.

Some guy one day will go full retard nuts, and demonstrate how many hundred innocent people could be taken out whilst listening to favored gangster rap and cruising comfortably through a crowded city street, mall, fairgrounds, school lot and/or elsewhere in two tons of raised 4WD or a big Jeep or small Hummer.

Then, of course it will be time to ban all big 4WD vehicles (which the collectivists disguised as environmentalists would dearly like to do).

I should have mentioned this guy last week. It felt sort of biased so I let it go. Elliot Leyton is my father in law's brother. Met him a few times and shared beer and thoughts. An interesting guy. He's a sociologist in Canada dubbed "the man who studies murder." THe CBC did a special on his work a while ago.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elliott_Leyton

He's been looking at murder and gun violence for some time and comparing countries. He concludes much of what many of us has been saying. Well, at least half of it. As many have said, I think a healthy and inherent distrust of government (or any centralized power - religious, commerial, criminal) is at the core of the Second Amendment. An entirely different subject than any psychological or sociological study on prevention. Then again, maybe not.

Leyton's work focused on cause and effect. Still, sociology is such a damn inexact science. Gargantuan variables.  But, in the end, that's the point. Leyton concludes (Like, of all people, Michael Moore just announced) that our violence is rooted deep in our culture and has little to do with metal instruments however automatic. I can't disagree with anyone who claims that a psychotic man (or these days, child) with an automatic will kill more but as Leyton observes, those are not the overwhelming factors of our self destruction. It begins with our video games and ends with a 20 year old pentagon soldier playing nearly the same thing but killing children half a globe away. We are numb to this disease and our government is the biggest carrier. This illness is a long time coming and our "solution" will take a little more than legislation.

ON WHY YOU SHOULD OWN A GUN:

 

A).  Because the Illuminati doesn't like you.

B).  Because the Illuminati wants you to be peasants

C).  Because the Illuminati wants total control over you

D).  Because there is an Illuminati

E).  Seriously, wtf are you not thinking, everyone is buying a gun, just fucking do it. All the cool kids are!

Its like wearing a seatbelt - safety first kids ;D 

 

F-P).  B/c remember, when those idiots who called you crazy and told you to shove your gold up your ass, come asking for food, it won't be in a friendly manner.

Q-Z).  B/c remember, Agenda 21 is FOREVA.

 

On a side note though, I really can't recommend more, that within the next few years, you begin making a move to another country... 

Its, like, soddom and gommorrah...  You don't wanna stick around to find out what happens.

 

LASTLY, I would like to note, that this is what happens when you allow a society to breed weak, stupid people.

Seriously... don't want it to happen again?  Don't let idiots reproduce.  Don't let the gene pool go to shit.  That's such a bad idea, and this world is the evidence.

& FFS, only institute these changes after a full scale revolution... 

B/c you DON'T want the Illuminati choosing for you.  The Illuminati has lost that all important element- humanism, which really should be balanced with practicality.

Illuminati run slave farms, not how to build a successful society 101.

I liked everything else. But you have to be stupid yourself to think we can or should play GOD and control reproduction. You also can't be Christian to say that. As a Christian we are all related and come from the same gene pool....the geniuses and the morons.

If we are to live in a world absent of natural selection, then we must institute synthetic evolution, or suffer the consequences.  Generally speaking, I think the consequences include mass slavery.

It doesn't even require natural selection, which would take tens of thousands of years.  All it takes is to allow people to suffer the consequences of their poor decisions and allow other people to observe those consequences.  People are clever enough to act in their own interests.  The massive Gov safty hammock ( http://blog.heritage.org/2012/10/18/morning-bell-welfare-spending-shattering-all-time-highs/ ) insulates people and groups from the negative consequences of their behavior.  The Gov is subsidizing stupid, and hence, we get more of it as people act in their own interests.

And apparently you aren't up on scripture that says that man is given a choice - FREE WILL. You can deny God and that is your perogative. Of course God would prefer one to choose righteousness and I think that is the minute difference you are trying to make. And that is fine. However in the context of the post and thread, I will take you to task.

The post I responded to said: "...so God wanted this to happen, huh? Go on - say it!"

 

And my response was to denote that in the Christian religion, one is given the FREE WILL do deny God. So just because a tragedy occurrs, it isn't because God wanted it.

And to educate you further, the idea of Jesus was to basically wipe the state clean by broadly forgiving sins and give man a 2nd chance. Do you know of the first instance. Well since you don't seem theologically educated, it was in the Old Testament under Noah where great Floods wiped the earth. The Old Testament is of God's retribution and the New Testament is of God's love.

And here is where I say something that might piss off some christians. The Old Testament was closer to the Koran (not saying it is the same). In that I mean that in the Old Testament, one (man) was to punish those that did not follow God - a similar theme in old and modern day Koran. In modern day Koran, we still have beheadings.

In the New Testament under Jesus, one is given FREE WILL and judgement will be God alone - not you or I.

Care to debate some more?

 

Now I look forward to the Anti Zionist posts (not from you but in general) - they give me a good laugh too.

There is no concern for safety in this gun ban mania, it's purely using this tragedy as a fighting wedge to disarm the populace so we become totally fucking sheepitized. Have your way with us now, it's fucking over...or is it? Let's see how the good old boys react.

Stuck on Zero, I do believe you have hit upon the most important and scary thing affecting America today. The epidemic of Autism and personality disorders in America is simply off the charts. A friend of mine had two boys in the 80's, both were autistic.

You have got to believe that something has caused the explosion in mentally troubled children and mentally retarded children. Autism has exploded as well. It has grown SO fast that it has to be something that began to change in America within the last 30 years. Look for what we have produced or introduced into the population in that time period and we might find the causes of this epidemic.

These kids grow up and then they drive cars, get ahold of guns and then they have the power to move quickly and deal death blows wher they want. Mental problems are so widespread now that I predict these mass killings will only explode in frequency. Like the Bat Man movie shootings. Insane!

I bet it is just as you point out, a combination of all those things you noted down.

We will soon be confronted with all those autistic kids becoming autistic adults. My friend has had to have her one son locked up because he keeps attacking people. And he is big and he is strong. Her other son she has packed away to a relative out in the country where he can do little harm to other people. The soon will be thousands upon thousands of young adults going out on their own with severe autism and mental problems. Look out by the end of this decade!

Could be environmental. Or if you believe some scientists, the human genome itself is in a natural and inevitable decline due to copy errors in reproduction and autism, etc. is a consequence.

You're looking in the wrong direction for a fallacy. You should not control someone else's reproduction because that would be sin and contrary to GOD's instruction to "be fruitful and multiply". Therefore, we reproduce. However, reproduction over generations, as I stated above -- results in copy errors. This is theorized to be a consequence of the Fall. Therefore there is no fallacy. Creation is in natural decline. You can also look at the Earth's weakening magnetic field, which at current decay rates is predicted to collapse by 3300 AD and will end all life on Earth.

Not that I know all that, or accept it, but that is the basis of the logic I employed.

I keep turning to this book:  The Myth of Autism: How a Misunderstood Epidemic Is Destroying Our Children by Michael J. Goldberg.  

 

Goldberg is a pediatrician affiliated with UCLA.  He posits that autism, ADHD and chronic fatigue syndrome/chronic fatigue immune dysfuntion syndrome are all the same viral neurological infection that strike at different ages (autism: toddler or young child, ADHD: school age child to teen, CFS/CFIDS teen to adult.).  This explains why you see clusters of the three syndromes in one family because it is a contagious illness.  It can be diagnosed via careful history and physical and most importantly, a distinctive SPECT scan pattern (SPECT is a nuclear scan that measure oxygen uptake in tissue, so this would be a brain scan that measures tissue perfusion and areas that are not getting enough oxygen.).  And most importantly, per the book Goldberg has found within his practice that improvements in behavior are seen when antivirals are given on a regular basis to treat the chronic viral infection (cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr, etc.) along with requisite dietary changes are made to combat allergies and incompatibilites.

 

Whether all this is true or not, I don't know.  But something has to be tried outside the realm of the behavioral scientists because whatever they are doing, it isn't nearly enough.  I don't know what it's like to be the parent of an autistic child/adult but I imagine it is extremely difficult indeed.  And considering the future for everyone involved must be a particularly and regularly worrisome exercise.  If autism is indeed a brain infection -- something physiological, then how the fuck did the behavioralists get their hands on it in the first place?

 

*ADD isn't included because it doesn't fit the SPECT pattern and because it was firmly in place before the spike within the last 30 years.

 

(Goldberg also makes a case for why he doesn't think that autism is a genetic disorder, given the fact that the rate of other genetically linked problems has stayed at a steady rate over the last few decades while autism/autism spectrum disorders has not.  The increase in diagnosis and sensitivity to the problem doesn't explain the rate of increase, either -- there really is a huge increase.  I lent my copy of the book out otherwise I'd be more specific here, sorry.  At any rate, it's an intriguing read.  I'd love to know what someone closer to the problem things.)

"The US has more autistic and mentally unstable people than the rest of the planet combined."

 Michael Savage had an interesting take on why...

"I'll tell you what autism is. In 99 percent of the cases, it's a brat who hasn't been told to cut the act out. That's what autism is. What do you mean they scream and they're silent? They don't have a father around to tell them, 'Don't act like a moron. You'll get nowhere in life. Stop acting like a putz. Straighten up. Act like a man. Don't sit there crying and screaming, idiot.' " Savage concluded, "[I]f I behaved like a fool, my father called me a fool. And he said to me, 'Don't behave like a fool.' The worst thing he said -- 'Don't behave like a fool. Don't be anybody's dummy. Don't sound like an idiot. Don't act like a girl. Don't cry.' That's what I was raised with. That's what you should raise your children with. Stop with the sensitivity training. You're turning your son into a girl, and you're turning your nation into a nation of losers and beaten men. That's why we have the politicians we have."

Savage also stated: "[W]hy was there an asthma epidemic amongst minority children? Because I'll tell you why: The children got extra welfare if they were disabled, and they got extra help in school. It was a money racket. Everyone went in and was told [fake cough], 'When the nurse looks at you, you go [fake cough], "I don't know, the dust got me." ' See, everyone had asthma from the minority community."

Joyful +1, the ancient priests of Poseidon said the same about horses (and music) btw

never mind. you know what I find interesting? MSM is making a big thing about the Asperger Syndrome

a few more knowledgable friends of mine say that nearly all men have a bit of Asperger - they tell me it's a question of degree coupled with some more typically male cognitive capabilities (and violence, though the link is weaker)

but people expecting "big bad things" to happen (like preppers, conspiracy theorists and particularly anarchists) seem to score high on tests

in a way, this would explain some things - if you don't feel yourself as part of society then you might feel like the only bear on a planet of wolfes - who work/hunt in packs while you are a lone singular individual small bear

anyway: how about the next big theory?

government testing the population for anti-social behaviour

"you know, for the kiddies' safety?"

I got that idea when Jesse's Cafe Americain was linking articles about how some HR firms in London were recruiting bankers based on their psychopathy - i.e. people without "normal" emphathy being "just perfect" for management. I was thinking: What a perfect recipe for the next witch hunt

Yes...it's funny alright...

but perhaps not in the way you intend...there's nothing remotely similar to the framework of what constitutes "a man" in the person who would disseminate such barbarity. You have no entry point from which to speak to the subject of what a man is at all.

A man in this day and late stage of Kali Yuga is more likely to be he who day in and day out deals with patience and forbearance with the terrible consequences of the mass poisoning of our children, as witnessed by his own...no longer can it be assumed by Norte Merikans that the carrying of a pregnancy to term will result in a 'healthy' child...that's how far we've come along the road to perdition.

And for your complete refusal to adhere to the minimal standards of what constitutes a human being, with a beating heart, I sentence you to repeated viewing of the children of Fallujah, and other stations of the cross which the rest of the world bears in order to santify the taxpayer paid contributions of Merikans to the satanic sionist crusade to rid us all of our very souls...and bear the consequences of their own sins...until you fall upon your knees and beg to be released from whatever demon possesses you.

You are confusing autism with OCD and ADD. I would agree with your that those with OCD and ADD just need more discpline. Autism is an actual disfunction of the brain. Oddly enough, some people with autism have exception skills, such as math or art. It is strange to see someone that can't tie their own shoe but can do mathematical equations in their own head in seconds that the rest of us need calculators for.

 

Savage has some good insights into culture but a MEDICAL doctor he is not and your post illuminates that. He is botanist and nutritionalist. About the only thing that Savage has said medically besides his nutritionalist comments is that liberalism is a mental disorder - of which I agree. The crap on autism is just that crap.

Remember those 85 children killed at a summer camp in Norway last year by a shooter with a Ruger Mini 14?  This sort of thing isn't limited to the US, and that one makes our guy look like a piker in comparison.  They didn't attempt to take away all the hunting guns in Norway over that.  And who was this Adam Lanza anyway?  There has been precious little information given out about him and I would have thought by now we would know the color of his underwear and what he ate for breakfast.  I believe I am witnessing a serious attempt to controll the information and the dialog here.  I haven't even seen a picture of him as an adult, just one of a sweet-faced 13-year-old boy.  I would like to know where he has been recently.  I want to be assured that he didn't drop under the radar for a few weeks, after being identified as maleable, picked up by one of the alphabet agencies, and brainwashed.  I wouldn't put it past them.

I'm serious, I went straight to the mail the day this shooting happened, they were are over it. CNN for example was just so far behind the story it wasn't even funny.

I'll tell you something about him that I've only read once...one small line in a B.Insider post, A former schoolmate was asked to describe him: "He was one of the Goths". I have yet to hear this apparent fact mentioned anywhere, on any blog, in any tweet...nothing! It's all guns and autism...even though autism has no historic link to this type of violence. The goth subculture is fascinated with the macabre and is closely tied to Satanism. It has been linked to several of these tragic episodes...but does the Left want to talk about this??? No f***ing way...because it speaks to the harse consequences of the Godless society they have been promoting for decades. For f*** sakes...Michael Moore even interviewed Marilyn Manson for his "Bowling for Columbine" movie to show what a reasonable and intelligent person he was.

To think that (I can't even type the bastard's name) was faking it almost makes me furious!

 

Edit:  Let's not forget the huge increase in the population itself in the last 100 years.  These problems have probably been around for several hundreds of years (mental issues) but are only now being focused on because of (1) greater numbers of occurences and (2) greater access to cameras and other communications technology.

Whoa, before you read too much into this article, know that it's either intentionally trying to mislead you or the author doesn't know shit about the topic.

"Gun Show Loophole" - bullshit.  Some states allow private citizens to sell guns directly to other citizens.  All BATFE certified dealers must ALWAYS conduct a background check on you via the FBI when you purchase a gun from them.  "Gun Show Loophole" is an anti-gun lobbying rally cry meant to conjure up an emotional response - so anytime you read an article with those words in it know that it's a hit job on your 2nd Ammendment Rights.

"3D Printing Guns" - bullshit.  First off, many states allow individuals to build their own guns.  They can't sell them, trade them in, etc... only they can possess them.  There is a huge number of skilled engineers, machinists, tool makers, and hobbiests that have been making their own guns for centuries.  3D printing can not achieve the level of strength/durability required to make an entire gun from the technology.  Again, anytime you read an article sensationalizing this as an evil technology know that every fucking manufacturer in the world uses this technology for PROTOTYPING and rarely is it used for any sort of production process to sell end-use product.

Please, you're either intentionally trying to mislead peolple with an article like this or you're a complete fucking idiot.

Which is it?

As a resident of the UK, which has (probably) the strictest gun related legislation/strictures of anywhere in the world (with the exception, possibly, of the Vatican City) & where 3 infamous mass shootings have taken place since 1987 involving the deaths of 44 people (inc. 16 children & not including the gunmen themselves) with many injured, facts alone show that tight & tightening gun laws themselves, won't deter someone with intent. Although that number of massacres doesn't compare with similar in the USA over the same period, remember, this is primarily an unarmed society & those predisposed to 'gun crime' will find the weapons if they really want them.

Given that, personally, I'm in favour of the UK's strict controls (even air guns aren't legally permitted only 12ft/lbs muzzle power), but there again, liberal gun laws have never been enshrined in our common law or rights as such, so it's a bit like banning big game hunting in Hyde park really.

I'm also wary (in any sphere or social legal context) of knee-jerk legislation in response to extreme events - they're invariably ineffective in their objective & often suffer the 'law of unintended consequences' from poorly drafted  wordings & ill thought-out ramifications.

Although in favour (in the UK) of strict gun laws, the UK is very different in many respects to the US - and I don't mean more/less violent per se or socially alienated, just different, with bigger geography, actual animal predators & a well-armed criminal fraternity - so simple nostrums like 'ban it' don't necessarily just work, as they do over here. I'm also aware of the USA's federal structure vis-a-vis 'national law' vs. 'state law' and how differences can produce more & bigger problems & crime 'opportunities' - the Prohibition Era & its attendant spawning of national organised crime network come to mind, for example.

Anyway, just a few thoughts from over here & my sincere condolences to all those affected in Newtown & elsewhere.

What about the 2002 Monash University shootings?

All of these shootings and other murders and suicides are done by people on psychotropic drugs. The propaganda media avoids that like a used condom on the sidewalk.

They want and are going to take our firearms, at least the ones that can be rightfully used against them--long-guns/rifles. The time is coming and they know it.

And always remember that guns don"t kill people, mostly people in uniform do. Gov uniform that is.

Look up estimates of gov killings in the 20th. centuray: est. 260mil.

Without our weapons, we become permanent draft animals on their "tax farm."

Guns simply are not the problem here.  I hate to be the one to inform you but it is much easier to build a bomb than most think.  Much, much easier.  This kid did his work with a gun because he had been programmed to do so by viewing thousands of mega violent movies, television programs, and over-the-top games.  All of our "freedoms" come with responsibilities.  Just as we have a responsibility when we have firearms in our homes, there are responsibilities with freedom of speech.  If Bloomberg et al are going after our Second Amendments rights, we then need to look hard at the First Amendment rights as well.  To hell with Hollywood's version of freedom of expression.  Its worse than a Taliban training camp when it comes to our children.  A great start would be to dismantle Hollywood (nutcase by nutcase) and draw and quarter the likes of Quentin Tarantino.  I'm even willing to bet we could build a case around dismantling that harbinger of all that is evil, Bloomberg news.  Bloomberg is a ligeral idiot.  This is one of Pandora's boxes that needs to be left shut.

Talk about playing fast and loose with the truth... what's your definition of 'mass murder'?

There were SEVEN gun-related multiple (not 'mass') murders in Australia between the Milperra 'massacre' in 1984 (a bikie-gang disagreement: do you think they care if their guns are legal?) and Port Arthur...where a retarded bloke reached Special Forces levels of proficiency with multiple different firearms (sorry mate, no sale on that) including being able to 'switch shoot' (i.e., shoot both right and left handed). There were NONE between 1981 and 1984.

(Note - I am still of the opinion that Bryant was not the shooter, just as I was of the opinion that Eastman did not shoot Colin Winchester: for that I was lambasted in the 90s and early 00s... and this year Eastman's conviction was called into question and a new iunquiry with wide-ranging scope was announced).

Of the multiple killings, only one - Port Arthur - had a bigger death toll than the fucking FIRE that killed 15 backpackers in Childers - a fire that was deliberaterly set.

36 people were knocked off AFTER 1998 in the internecine strife in the Melbourne underworld... ALL were killed with guns.

If you outlaw guns, only outlaws (and the pigs - high-school failures who have a thing for bossing people around, the triggermen of the .gov crime syndicate) will have guns.

 

Guns are 'illegal' in Australia, and so is weed: and a fat old bloke like can get an ounce of weed and a CheyTac Intervention home delivered. The Law is nonsense for old women and frightened weird little guys.

Those killed at Ft. Hood were adults, thus served no political purposes. Children on the other hand are political gold. thus politicians love kissing babies and then send those same babies to die in Iraq as adults.

At a bare minimum they should treat these things like a fire at the school.

If they hear gun shots, pull the fire alarm and everyone runs for the exits. Run as far away from the school as possible as fast as you can.   Staying in the building is as bad as being in a building on fire.

Far from perfect but it would have saved lives in Columbine, VA Tech and this school.   The evil **** at VA Tech chained some of the doors.

I've been saying the main stream media is a major enemy of the American people for a while because they lie by omission. I don't believe they can brainwash a critical mass of people anymore because virtually nobody tunes into their news channels these days. It used to be 20 million would watch CNN prime time, but that's down to about 500k now. The Internet is the new anti-mind control mechanism reaching billions of people today.

"But what about gun control? There is little doubt that in the coming years the gun-show loophole will be closed and Canadian-style longer waiting periods will be introduced."

This is baloney.  Since the "assault weapons" ban introduced by the Clinton administration, the gun grabbers have been on the run.  The ban has since been repealed, numerous court cases have gone against the gun grabbers, more and more people are tuning out the MSM and the sales of guns over the last 4 years has been nothing short of phenomenal.

This grandstanding over an unfortunate incident is basically the last stand for the gun grabbers and the MSM, as well.  Their days are over.

"And as the experience of many other countries including Britain and Australia shows, criminals and those with violent intent will still be able to get guns (the only people who will be disarmed are the law-abiding majority)."

And you'll find that what they do with those guns is shoot each other.  NO-ONE in Australia worries about not having a gun, or as te writer puts it, being disarmed. No one here wants a a bloody gun, we're all safer without them, weird how Americans cant grasp that concept.

In the USA, many drugs are illegal. They are everywhere. This shows that making things illegal doesn't make them go away, especially when they are already entrenched. We remember our experiment with Prohibition of alcohol. We imagine a country where all the criminals have guns, and the law-abiding citizens do not, and we see the "us-vs-them" tribalism/racism/multiculturalism/sexism that is rampant here, and realize it would be a BAD thing. We have also read in history about the horrors that powerful governments can perpetrate on defenseless subjects.

Looking at your demographic information, race, religion, and literacy, as well as your border security (miles and miles of oceans) it is a small wonder you feel safe without a gun. But the USA is not Austrailia, and Austrailian solutions may not work for American problems.

Doctors kill about 250,000 people a year with their mistakes.  Are we banning them?  No.  We just wrote them a blank check.

It's sickening to see how Obama and his allies are using these tragic deaths, which are a drop in the bucket compared to the hundreds of millions of tragic deaths committed by governments (google democide), to convince Americans they should surrender more of their freedoms.

What's even more sickening is that most Americans are going to buy it.

The gun grabbers have tried gradualism to grab the people's guns and that has failed.  So all that is left is an attempt at immediate, outright seizure.  That would be an immense failure for TPTB.  They pride themselves in being master illusionists.  I think a door-to-door confiscation by the armed forces would end American exceptionalism completely and permanently.

If you have a problem, shoot somebody. Ridiculous? Or the first thing that comes to an American's mind?

Not long ago on this board it was pointed out that gun and ammo sales soared after the recent election. No one thought this at all peculiar, even though the US government has never backed down from guns, but has frequently backed down from organized masses of voters.

Yet no one thought of organizing. Everyone thought of guns. And no one saw anything crazy in this.

As long as shooting someone is the first solution that comes to mind, some young people and mentally unhinged will act on it.

Shooting should be the last thing that comes to mind, not the first. When that day comes the mass killings will stop. Not until then.

Add to this the fact that the little bitch was faking the tears. This, is one of the most despicable things I have ever seen. Not that this actor is worse than Lindsey Lohan, but that people are not freaking out over how obvious it really is that the victims mean nothing; not when political leverage might be gained. This guy is a complete embarrassment to the Office of President, and to the human race. I Do not condone any out of bounds reaction to his behavior, but can only pray he grows a pair and has the decency to resign.

Can't help but wonder if any person in "office" has the balls to call him on this one. Anyone who did would become a hero, and time would honor them.

Turn on the T.V. and what do you see? Guns. How many detective shows are there? F-ing Jack Bauer was the man! Django! (the D is silent, but the guns are not). Tom Cruise? Guns. Arhnold? Guns. Hey, maybe we are getting progressive Vampires only bite to kill victims, but maybe that's because guns are useless against them?? 

Big Trouble in Little China? Guns. Ok, guns with Kung Fu, but guns none the less. Men In Black? Space guns. Star Wars? Future guns in a galaxy far, far away.

Remember Tu-Pac? Guns. Biggie? Guns. If we banned ALL guns then watching TV and Movies would be pointless, since there would be very little subject matter left.

Where is the blame for the media putting guns in our face 24/7? (and at a profit mind you). How about the Pharmacutical Industry quick to medicate any and all "ailments" for a buck??

Revolutionary War? Guns.

Blaming medicines is ignorant and stupid for at least two reasons:  1) Psychopathic killers have existed for centuries, so obviously medications have not caused the phenomenon of mental disorders.  2) Appropriate medications have alleviated a lot of suffering ... such that thousands of people are no longer committed to psychiatric institutions and can live fairly normal and productive lives, e.g. people once crippled by bipolar disorder and anxiety disorders.

I succumbed to PTSD after some traumatic events and could have been completey disabled by panic attacks and agorophobia, but I was prescribed both Lorazepam (for anxiety) and Mirtazapine (for depression) and continued to function fairly well, until I now function largely without meds.

What are you going to tell a war vet Timmay?  Get over it?  Or what are you going to tell a raped young girl?  Get over it?

You really do not know what you are talking about.

And are you implying that TV and movies somehow cause gun violence?  Oh boy have I got old news for you.  Guns have been around far longer than mass media, same as the psychopaths have been around far longer than drug companies.

Exactly. I happen to be one of those who's life was/is saved by anti-depressants. As a business owner and a family man without meds I couldn't/I cannot function to a normal capacity. Saying mass murder is caused by anti-depressants is as ridiculous as saying guns kill people, it's just not true. There are serious issues with this society that are so deep that I don't care to elaborate further, I will say this. We as "civilized" (I use this term very loosely) people increasingly have too much time on our hands, I believe if we were more concerned about hiking 4-5km to a fresh water supply then problems such as this would be non-existent. Herein lies the issue, the more "modernized" we become the easier our lives get, subsequently the less civilized we seem to become. I have no answers for this, its just my observation.
