It probably wouldn't be a success, Brad, but I'm sure it would help some.

it's F'in crazy that a 9mm glock,

an assault weapon,

can be purchased legally,

as easily as a big mac in this country.

how about "some" gun control.

Brad made THE point.

It's tragic that people have to die, hell, I lost a brother to murder so I understand COMPLETELY what those people are going through. I also understand that if there was another SANE armed individual around 25-28 of those families wouldn't be feeling the emptyness and pain they are right now.

Why did you use the term "assault weapon".

Never heard that term before.

I think a little gun control couldn't hurt.

But I also agree with Fibes ... If others there were armed, things would have turned out differently.

You guys (in the US) need a level playing field.  Either everyone carries a gun, or no one does. (not too doable I know)  I would opt for the second option.

Assault weapon... 'general term'. Assault rifle... established technical definition..

Assault weapon? My .357s? Says you. Assault rifle? My AR-15? Says you.

It's all BS, it's you making something sound bad.

All weapons are made for assault. Careful not to assault the wrong person, lest ye be assaulted.

Wiki is a good loophole. Finally, agenda has found resource.

Exactly.

Heralding terms like this is:

boring.

anti-communicative.

I only asked out of respect.

I am definitely a big fan of the system for gun control they have here in Germany.

There are two major problems.

1. A shitload of foreign types are illegally armed.  If the economy ever takes a serious dip and the folks here have to resort to priorities on who gets what hand out.....we/they are in some deep kimchi.

1 (part two). It has some serious aristocratic trappings.

FUKK THAT!

My current inventory here in the studio:

Handguns (read:assault revolvers)

S&W .44 mag
Freedom Arms .454

Long shtuff

Beretta 12 gauge
No name cheapo M1 copy
Mauser 100 year anniversary .416 Rigby
Mauser 1909 "Agentino" 7x57

That's it.  Just what I need.

Had to sell the rest to keep the studio running.

They have very strict rules here.

No history of public goofiness.

Clean Polizei record.

But you could get any weapon you want (so I'm told) illegally.

Most euro-ding dongs have no idea which end the bullet comes out of.

I am convinced that if any jackass could buy a gun this place would be zippin' with lead.

i like this idea. would those of you who are all about guns feel better if every single person in america had at least 1 gun with them and fully loaded at all times?

i think shit would get chaotic pretty fast. but hey....

im off to the shootin range....

I totally disagree.

London is very polite.  12 million or so mother fukkers packed in there and people say "excuse me" right and fukken left.

And

No shootin' irons.

It has nothing to do with having a piece.

It's the ability to wander outside and not be a psycho jackass.

It would kinda be like every country in the world having the doomsday machine from Dr. Strangelove.

Not so sure that'd be a good thing...

Wait, apparently there's a town in georgia where it's mandatory to own a gun!

look, let's forget about definitions, but i will say it was not a bb gun used in these horrific killings.

i am not attacking responsible gun owners. i understand it's anyones right to bear arms, so i don't care if you have a 100 357's. my point is that maybe some common sense might help where regulation is concerned. the dealer said, "he seemed like a regular college kid", i don't know of any regular college kids, let alone adults, walking around with 9mm glocks, so what would be wrong with wondering or saying to a college kid, what the hell you gonna do with that?

if by asking that question, is a violation of someone's rights, then yes, we should all stock up to level the playing field to get the bad who did'nt get the girl. maybe they should issue glocks to all students from the campus book store. maybe if there were other students packing glocks the death toll of this shooting would've been kept down in the single digits.

or maybe, somebody could have said to the kid, what the hell you gonna do with that?
