    Default Todays Mass Shooting

    Actually, I think they were overdue.............

    I can hear Trump's rhetoric now.. "This could have been avoided if they'd just had an armed-guard on the door."

    Which is exactly what he said about the recent synagogue shooting.

    What they need is an armoury in every classroom, bar room, synagogue, tiny room (aka the John) so that any potential victims can arm themselves and shoot back if they've forgotten to bring their own AK47 with them
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    No, what they need is for EVERY American over a minimum age of 15 (to be decided) to be issued with a Pistol or Revolver (.357 Magnum or a Glock) and to carry them at all times when out doors.
    For Families they should own at least ONE AK47 or similar along with a 100 rounds of Ammunition.
    Depriving those convicted of any crimes to be able to be armed doesnt seem to make any difference as it appears the majority of those carrying out these mass shootings have little or no criminal record.
    I stand unequivicably behind everything I say , I just dont ever remember saying it !!

    Maybe Trump should build his wall, right around 'merica, no one in or out, and let them shoot it out. The last one left can then take the wall down.

    Yeah, me too....what I find even more tragic is that a country would take no steps to avoid such occurrences...

But they wont be able to get into aus from the boats bullshit !!!!!! and we are lead to believe that it trumps fault ----------------and thats the entertainment put up by the media

    Not germane to this thread mate.....

    I'm not quite sure what you mean about Somalia. The US tried but gave up because a few soldiers got killed (a tragedy, but inevitable) so they packed up and left.



    Nothing to do with Trump. Nothing to do with Manus Island either.

    Talk to the ALP when discussing refugees. As much as they HATE Abbot, they can't hide from the fact that he "stopped the boats" and nearly all the drownings that had occurred under Labour. And it'll happen again in my view when they are re elected. I'm pretty sure the smugglers can't wait.

    AS long as a significant percentage of the population of a country gets sucked in by the crocodile tears of the loony left then they are vulnerable. And stupid.

    so what happened to the familys of the children removed from detention when the kids are moved to oz ????? not a single mention by the media or the pollies and some of them are somalian descent. More radicals coming up ????? in this case the "loony left" are doctors crying that they have mental problems so they have to bring them into the country -------not a lot of commonsense in that when in a few short years the slaughter will happen again . Not 'loony left' doogooders

    I like guns. I used to be an active competition pistol shooter and did ok.

    Talking about gun crime in the US is a waste of time. No matter what your position, in favour of or against, the US is a completely lost cause. The first thing EVERYONE has to realise is it's not a Hardware problem, Its a culture problem. I am here In NZ ATM and went in a huge gunshop today. There is plenty of hardware easily available but there are no mass shootings here.

    IF anyone really does want to address the problem. The first thing is to be honest and not take the easy escape goat and blame guns. There is so much more to it than that but I can't see the problem there ever being resolved.

    Been my assertion for years. THEY don't want to change so just let them kill each other. The civilians are probably better armed (and certainly more numerous) than whomever has the task of disarming them.

    You'd be better off championing ammunition control than gun control.
