Re: El Paso Mall Shooting. 20 DEAD, 26 Injured... WHEN WILL IT END?!

So the comparison with the UK and knife crime doesn't work because there is zero apathy to it in the UK, we haven't accepted, sorry but they're just not equatable. It is forefront of crime prevention, it is consistently a big part of bipartisan agreement, not arguments. No one is shouting 2nd amendment etc.

When Dunblane happened we banned guns. When Acid attacks spiked we banned acid in stores. When Knife crime shot up we restricted sales to over 18s as well as increasing stop and search powers, and now Bojo wants to increase police numbers based nearly exclusively on the issue of knife crime. We haven't sat and done nothing.

Whilst its true grooming gangs were ignored, as soon as the scandals hit, much like Hollywood, there was action, the Government have done multiple investigations and bipartisan legal and financial changes since.

You're painting an inaccurate picture of responses, I'm not debating the effectiveness yet because clearly knife crime among gangs is still an issue, but the conflation of gangland knife crime with random mass shootings is in itself entirely unhelpful.
Your Governments actions against it has created the best memes because it looks completely ineffectual. I use the UK knife violence as an example of those of us who don't live there who look and question what's going on.

As for your molestation issues your Government only acted after it was lit up on the news. I wonder how much more grooming cases have gone without making the news? your Government knew, your Police force knew, there had been at times murders of the victims and people came forward. Your Government did not wish to do anything about it.

What if the media never caught on? would anything have been done? Doubtful. Also with so many people knowing it seems more were apathetic until it became big news. Don't worry if these mass shootings didn't hit the MSM, nobody would really care either.

Thats not egregious then, I thought when you said 'people get used to it' you were trying to equate the apathy towards gun violence in the US with the UK and knife crime, we are the opposite, knife crime is a bipartisan issue where all parties pretty much want to do the same thing. You won't get a single Brit who is looking at rising knife crime and going 'thoughts and prayers', mainly because were an irreligious country but also because we're not apathetic to the situatiuon.

Nope. Was just making the point that everywhere has it's thing where outsiders look at them and are like "The fuck?". Apathy may occur, it has for some Nations. People can get used to anything, else the shit that happens wouldn't.

I wish it weren't so but it seems to be the case, hopefully your Government can solve your issue. I think for us the problem is so huge that people miss the forest for the trees because the problem is massive and complex. So they only see bits and pieces.

Trump : Its da video Gamez. Fuck off.

Trump: They should face the death penalty...Yeah that'll work because these guys are always so scared of dying.

Red flag law seems like a good idea however so 1 of them is okay.

Love the whole, we'll give you gun reform but you got to give us some immigration changes too...

You can't campaign on taking peoples cars away or alcohol away. But the connection that I see between drunk driving and mass shootings is mental health and no party wants to even acknowledge this problem, let alone tackle it. Why is that? Well, they gain more from not actually solving problems, to be honest.
Do other countries not have mental health issues too? This is such a NRA talking point.

A Republican Representative just responded to a mass shooting in her state by literally writing a manifesto a white terrorist mass shooter would write. Smh, I can't.




And 45's dumbass doesn't even know or sincerely care what city the damn shooting took place at.

For a supposed first world country, United States neglects its mental health issues.
Compared to which other first world country?

One could just as well say, for a supposed first world country, United States neglects its guns ownership issue.

Yes, but the guns were always around. Do you not question why in the past 20 years there has been a spike in mass shootings? This is a moral fabric and cultural issue. I'm not saying don't change gun laws or do change gun laws. I'm saying that isn't the root of the problem.

Re: El Paso Walmart Shooting. 20 DEAD, 26 Injured... WHEN WILL IT END?!

I dont feel like the Us neglects its mental health issues, alot of it has to do with people not admitting that something is wrong. Alot of people that have mental health issues dont like admitting they do because if they do they know there guns will get taken away in my opinion. What I think the US should do is if anyone has had any type of mental health issue or was thought to have a mental health issue they need to not be able to buy a gun at all. Honestly the only people that should have access to buy an AR should be police and military. Why does anyone else need an AR? I honestly dont understand why you would. You can hunt easily with a shotgun or a rifle or a pistol. Too many innocent people are dying because we the US are fucking dumb as shit with our gun laws. They keep saying it needs to change but it never does. If im not mistaken doesnt the NRA always give a big donation to whoever is president? Its like they know its a problem but they are funding the president to keep guns steadily available to people.

:lmao they even said thanks Obama :lmao

Trump mixed up Toledo and Dayton btw. This fucking guy.

@virus21 I was thinking the same thing. This person is really old.


:lmao blaming Colin Kaepernick :lmao

I mean this issue is complex, but this person is unintentional comedy and cannot be taken seriously.

edit3: But it does show you that people like her are part of the complex problem. It's bad enough Congress works for corporations mostly, but we have total fucking idiots in there on top of this.

Are you saying mental health issues were not around before too?

Maybe it is the internet causing the spike in mass shooting since it is a new factor compared to years ago when guns were always around? <sarcasm>

But I agree one root cause for the spike in mass shooting is a cultural issue. Gun ownership is fetishsized by the gun manufacturers into a symbol for freedom to sell guns that prevent any meaningful laws to be enforced.

I can't make you stop posting, but all non-Americans your input is totally useless. We don't really care what you think and you're not going to solve this issue. So yeah, please learn American or just stop posting. Ultimately it's your call though. I'm just giving some advice so you stop looking ignorant.

But Deso brought up United States neglect mental health issues compared to other countries. So I assume our input can be somehow helpful to support or deny the claim that it is all on mental health?

Americans input on this issue has largely been useless too. So why direct this at us non-Americans? :shrug

Re: Mass Shooting in Dayton, Ohio, Kills at Least 9

I want to see a Tarantino movie where these pathetic incels with delusions of grandeur who think they're political revolutionaries because they can recite fringe political nonsense and shoot unarmed innocent people get their heads repeatedly crushed against the wall by Brad Pitt.

Or at least a Brad Pitt type.
Those types of guys think they are the Brad Pitt in that movie.

i have a friend of mine, who I legit think is capable of doing this, he is a leftist, he is a hardcore leftist, but it isn't his politics that make me think he is capable of anything like that.

It's how much of an f'n martyr he thinks he is.

He watches porn all the time, hires hookers, says how women need to "pay for their actions"

And considers himself the hero.. That is what this guy sounds like to me, he was the tragedy story that overcame it all to become the hero we needed.

mental illness and gun control talk aside, dudes like this are scary, they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors (my friend is black) but one thing is constant:

They think whoever hurt them needs to pay, and it manifests way too much inside them
