Posted by Self-Banished on Nov. 01 2017,1:01 pm^^ I like the one about the drones, especially considering Buster loved using them.
As far as the rest of them? They want us dead, no apologies, no discussions, they want us dead. Unless something is done we're heading to a time of no safe places, no going to large gatherings (I quit doing that years ago)
I was surprised yesterday afterwards when the mayor and the governor spoke and the immediately blamed it on terrorist then today Cuomo came out and started talking about gun control wtf?
This pig came in on what is called a diversity program, as I understand it one of Schumers dipsh!t ideas. All that's required is a diploma and no criminal record. How do you check background in some of these sh!tholes?
All they want to do is make here just like where they come from.
How long before one of these CDL drivers get the idea to take a 19000# bobtail and repeat yesterday's slaughter.

where was your similar outrage to the massacre in Vegas?
What are you saying about Vegas?
New York was cut and dry terrorism, Vegas? There are still a lot of unanswered questions there. A 65 year old man, seemingly well off in life, suddenly loses his cookies and perpetrates the worst mass shooting in history. A security guard, disappeared for days after ( being debriefed) then breaks his silence on Ellen? Also, and there has been other stories but it seems everybody's forgotten about this tragedy too quickly (press)
So have you got opinions or are you going to turn into a "drive by" like Botto?
Posted by was1 on Nov. 02 2017,7:46 amyou are quick to come up with ways to stop this, how about how to stop what happened in Vegas?
Both are horrible.
In NY we right away have people saying to end immigration. Blaming political parties that it is their fault. Here was a guy who was in this country for a decade and in the last year turned into the monster that killed 8 people. How is it any different than what may have happened to the man in Vegas?
Saying there is a difference because one was born here and one came here is not a reason or a solution.
Posted by was1 on Nov. 02 2017,7:48 amAnd, I hope you and others have similar outcry for the Colorado shooting as well.
Posted by Self-Banished on Nov. 02 2017,8:54 am^^ hey, you shop at Wally World you take your chances.
Posted by was1 on Nov. 02 2017,9:09 amwould that have been your response had the shooter been Muslim?
Posted by Self-Banished on Nov. 02 2017,9:34 am^^ I'm guessing you haven't been to Wally World as of late.

The bad guy was denied a carry permit in Texas

But due to our gov fukups, failed to report he'd been found guilty of assault.

@ SB—Should people who are drawing a Social Security check or SSI for mental illness be allowed to purchase firearms?
No, you shouldn't.
So, beyond the smartass commentary, if a person is just collecting SS? Why not, nothing wrong with getting some of ones hard earned cash back and exercising their 2nd amendment right.
If ones collecting SSI for having pudding for a brain and their thought process is flawed then there should be Due process to assess the situation.
Posted by Self-Banished on Nov. 09 2017,5:04 amHmmm,

I'm a bit apprehensive about this but it seems to be in line with what the world has become.
Posted by Expatriate on Nov. 09 2017,6:43 am^^So you advocate for drug testing for people on welfare but if someone with a mental condition (nuts) on SSI which is essentially
Social Security disability (welfare) it's okay for these people run around with guns.
Unless you NRA types lighten up a bit and agree that some of these
things need to be addressed the system has failed US there's way to many nuts with guns we'll all pay the price.
There seems to be a common thread among a number of these shooters, many not all were taking drugs for Psychiatric Disorders
— Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)—if you need drugs to to deal your daily life maybe you shouldn't have guns...
Sooner or later it'll hurt everyone who owns firearms, we'll all suffer
because of the lack of enforcement and they'll go way overboard we'll be like Canada, England or Australia.
We have to get the number of these tragic events down!
Posted by Self-Banished on Nov. 09 2017,7:53 am^^ pay attention, reading comprehension counts here, I said if someone on SSI for mental issues should be afforded due process, if after that they're found to be a bag of cats they shouldn't be allowed to possess a firearm.
