Five minutes *if* the city cops will come out here? The Sheriff, is he 10 or 20 minutes away at this time?
Back in the day, I wanted to write for a newspaper. We toured the El Lay Times building and came across the 'morgue'
It was a collection of obituaries of famous people who hadn't died yet. They updated the stories and just had to fine tune the facts so that they could put it into the paper ASAP.
When I see the bumpers to the news programs and the ominous/sad/sinister music, I laugh.
Not at the story, but at the people who think up the catchy phrasing and pick the music.
What do you do for a living?
I write the tunes for FOX/MSNBC/CNN, when something bad happens.....
I had this vision of shooting one inside of a house and just how much damage it would do.
That's not really protecting your home?:o:eek:
Just flipped the channel to MSNBC and heard a woman talk about her daughter and signing a press release at the beginning of the semester, so, if the child was approached by the media after any event, she would be allowed to talk to the press.
I hate cars because people get drunk and kill with them
I hate money, because it causes gambling.
I hate cameras because they can be used to record porn.
I hate porn because it makes people go to strip bars and throw money at women.
I hate cars because the are used to drive to the strip bars.
I hate money because that buys the gas, to get to the strip bars.
I know they can get a gun somehow, but the less of them there are, the more difficult it would be. I also know that if these morons didn't have a gun, they'd probably use a knife, but how many people can you kill with a knife before someone stops you?
I hope for everyone's sake that the weapon laws will be tightened.
Banning ALL guns will likely never happen in the USA. Banning the sale of all automatic, semi auto guns could happen.
What earthly reason could anyone have for owning a weapon whose purpose is to kill as many people/animals as possible
in the shortest amount of time? There was, for a short time, a ban on these kinds of guns & it was allowed to expire. Why?
Someone will pop back up and restate that the Newtown killer used handguns, not semi automatics, but I think the American right to bear arms is outdated.
"guns don't kill people, people kill people". That may be true, but they sure make it easy to kill many people in a short amount of time.
Even if they banned the sale of all guns now, there are so many in circulation, it probably wouldn't make a dent. :(
Guns do not kill people, bullet do, unless you are pistol shipped to death?
I can go to Dick's sporting goods, buy a semi automatic rifle, come home, go on the web and within a few days, have the parts to convert it to an full rock and roll gun.
I just typed in a phrase on the websearcher thing and came back with 525,000 hits for ways to fix my gun to shoot like an MG.
I could also buy 15-30 round mags or a kit to convert a gun to use those mags.
The conversion kits are legal.
We limit large mags and assault rifles.
You get an idiot that will show up with a 9mm pistol, that shoots 13 rounds, he pulls out another 13 shooter, then pull out a ANOTHER pistol - even a small .32 cal gun has 8 rounds.
That's 32 rounds w/o having to reload.
So while I am trying to become one with the tile floor, he's going to have time to reload at least one gun, shoot another 13 rounds.
There's 45 shots, not counting the rifle he may have been carrying and depending on how many shots that gun is capable of?
An idiot with the drive, hatred and means, can carry a small lethal arsenal.
Who was the joker that shot up the island overseas?
Or did we forget that incident.
Actually, Richard, anyone selling parts to convert a semi-auto to FA to unlicensed people is breaking a few federal laws.
In addition, to meet Federal requirements for sale, a semi atuo is supposed to require more than 8 hours of work by a competent (read: Skilled) gunsmith to convert to full auto, and no competent gunsmith is going to touch any work of the sort.
I fear there is no hope. We, as a nation, will just allow the insanity to go on. Too, too many people are more in love with guns than they are with their neighbor.
