Re: The Reality aint easy
Could someone pretty please tell me why a civilian would ever need a rapid-fire gun? How on earth can such a weapon ever be justified?

Zombies.

Man with concealed-carry permit fatally shoots would-be robber

So what about the other 761 people who were shot dead in Chicago this past year? Or the 2788 who were shot but didn't die? How many of those were self defense?

Just for a little context there have been 3,412 Americans killed by terrorists from 2001-2014 inclusive and over 440,000 killed by non terrorist gun fire. You guys lose more people every 3 months to gun fire than you lost soldiers in the 7 years of the Iraq war. Is there any ratio so disproportionate as to make you rethink your position on unrestricted gun ownership?

Re: Man with concealed-carry permit fatally shoots would-be robber
It is becoming ever more apparent to me that most of the world's problems are caused by poor accounting practices.

Re: Texas This Time
26 killed at Baptist church in Texas

Hardly worth a mention.

Not including suicide, accidents or the police there were approx 172 people shot today in the US...and yesterday and the day before. That is about 6500 since the Vegas massacre with about 1200 fatalities.

Carry on.

Re: Texas This Time
Yes we have had enough moments of silence. We need some moments of outrage.

edit Respect for the dead for sure but how about some respect for the living.

Re: Texas This Time
...nothing will ever get done.

I don't think that is true. There must be a limit to what people can tolerate and when you have had enough then speak your mind and be heard. Voices accumulate.
