    Oh fer cryin' out loud. Many of us are talking about that, that this guy's gun was probably legal. And enjoytheride - and me - and others - are just saying that stricter gun controls AND stricter...

    Free wi-fi.

    I'm not being silly, really. Education is the answer. If we could provide connectivity and the means of accessing it to every child that's a start. There are hundreds of thousands,...
  3. That is true. But my point is that by buying into...

    That is true. But my point is that by buying into HSUS each dollar takes away from better organizations and makes an awful organization always bigger. They get bigger so more people donate because...

    Me neither. Criminals will always crim, but that doesn't mean we don't strive to do all we can to save the lives that we can save.
  5. If people are not super-careful because they have...

    If people are not super-careful because they have a kid and yet they pay no mind or not much mind to gun security, I don't think harsher after-the-fact laws will be deterrents. It's your child for...

    Glad you respect it because I'd never give them one thin dime.

    Of course animal lovers are glad when cruelty is stopped, but for those of us very familiar with HSUS we know damn well that almost...

    Back on the topic of this thread, which is the specific murders yesterday. Here's a quote that I think explains Vester Flanagan and all the other self-called "injured innocents." The person talked...

    None of which changes the fact that if we can do a better job of keeping guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them lives would be saved. It's worth doing.

    Oops, just read that you survived. THIS TIME.

    Now for the crow: protect your eyes! They go for those first. (Actually, crows & ravens are pretty scary. Those beaks. Brrrrr.)

    Your horse isn't worried. All he has to do is run faster than you and he's got that covered. Stick like glue!

    But it wasn't diagnosed. It wasn't "official." And we can't base decisions on what we only "think" about another person. You're right about this guy. But legally, which is what we're talking about,...
  12. First of all, strict and constant enforcement of...

    First of all, strict and constant enforcement of existing laws. Just like with animal welfare issues, if we would enforce the laws already in existence we wouldn't have to pass "you can never ever...

    I don't think it's a snarky question at all. It's two separate issues. In this case in VA I'm betting his gun is completely legal and his gun ownership could not have been/should not have been...
  14. Had he run at them with a knife the chances of...

    Had he run at them with a knife the chances of one, two, or all three of them surviving would be much greater, not to mention the fact that he may not have had the courage to engage in that kind of...

    The station promo'd where they would be; the station manager was quoted as saying they've never kept secret where their news crews would be but perhaps would have to start doing so, which, as I said...

    Lots of law-abiding dealers out there, which does not negate the fact that there are plenty of non-law abiding sellers and therefore it is very, very easy to simply walk in, pay cash, and walk out...

    caffeinated, I see your point. To me, though, these manifestos never make any of these people heroes or martyrs, they only point out how sad and it's-not-my-fault-it's-everybody-else's these people...

    Thank you, Marla 100 for clarifying.

    The manifesto is coming out. He did it because of the Charleston church shooting in June, which he says "put him over the top," and he did it because he was...

    This is ridiculous. OF COURSE there are going to be people calling in for spite.

    And what about the good, caring people with well-cared for dogs who don't live in a upscale house with a fenced...

    An instructor told me he's bought guns at gun shows simply by paying cash and being allowed to walk out with them. He's not the only one who told me that buying guns at gun shows is very easy and...

    Sounds like Flanagan didn't even know Alison Parker. Flanagan was fired in 2013 and Ms. Parker only graduated from college in 2012 and I don't think this was her first job. Plus he alleges she made...

    More updates from various sources:

    Station Manager Mr. Marks at WDBJ: "Station manager Marks, speaking on air hours after the shooting, said Flanagan was "an unhappy man" who "quickly gathered a...

    It's more like this: Remove "and yet" and replace it with "therefore":

    "Those children of the instr., one can assume, know only responsible gun owners, and are well versed themselves in gun...

    Most likely the station had a tease the day before that "tomorrow morning Alison Parker will be early at ....." Reporters often have favorite shooters (photographers - sorry, my husband was a tv...
