With the terrible incident in Conn. This got over looked. This could have turned out alot worse than what happened.The gunman got away. Apparently if your upset or cant agree with someone the only option is to just shoot everyone.
From the blog Ball Don't Lie: An argument between a Chicago Bulls fan and two young Philadelphia 76ers fans on a West Philadelphia train following the Bulls' road win over the Sixers on Wednesday night resulted in gunfire, wounding the Bulls fan and another passenger, who … Continue reading →
This is the new Guns thread now that it's locked.
Gun crimes are an issue in this country. You can stick your head in the sand, but that isn't going to change reality. That's not to say that guns should be made illegal- but the current way of doing things is failing
well actually i just saw this and hadn't heard a peep about it was just passing it along but you can talk about whatever you want to.
Yeah good find. The 76ers and the Eagles losing on the same night can create some violent and aggressive philly fans.
I was aware
Oh please. If the Obama administration didn't authorize drone attacks you'd be complaining that they were soft on terrorists in the Middle East. Just stop.
You making valid points happens about as often as aubie25 says something insightful and well-reasoned.
Yes, he has. Just like George W. Bush has killed over 4,000 American soldiers and over 100,000 Iraqi and Afghani civilians by dragging us into the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. See how irrelevant that is in the context of talking about this national tragedy? Stop trying to turn everything into an attack on Obama.
I would be so mad if I couldn't go duck hunting if they banned guns. Just do away with the pistols if you must (even though I'm "pro" guns) or make it very, very hard to get a weapons permit.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
No it definitely isn't a valid point... When their soldiers are hiding in schools and hospitals eventually that shit is bound to happen. They don't give a rats ass about killing our women or children so I really don't even want to hear it
I'm all for the 2nd Amendment, but there has to be some reform in the way guns are sold. Has to be. It shouldn't be as easy as it is to obtain a deadly weapon IMO.
And before someone says it, I say the same thing about cars. Should be much harder than it is to obtain a license to operate a 2-ton asphalt missile.
Is it just me are does all these shootings crimes in blue states. Connecticut, Colorado, Oregon, Philadelphia, except one in Virginia but that is a tweener state
I wondered the same thing yesterday. The vast majority seem to. I can remember one in Tennessee shortly after Columbine. Of course there are shootings in red states between students that occured over arguements, but those are direct targeting shootings. Not this nut job shoot up everyone in sight then kill myself type shooting.
I know this is a terrible event but more kids will die choking on toy parts this year than by being shot. Toys are more dangerous to kids than guns. Swimming pools are to. Cars as well. And we can get by without all those things just like we could without guns if thats your arguement. The right to own guns is a constitutional right and will never be overturned. And can you even imagine trying to un-arm the country? You would have tens of thousands of people boarding up their homes daring cops to come and try. I say leave it up to the individual states on how strict you make your gun laws and let people live where they feel comfortable.
People keep saying whats wrong with our society. I say nothing that hasnt been with us since we climbed out of the trees. We are a violent race. Maybe over the next thousand years our DNA will evolve and genes controlling violence will become more dormant. Id say we are a much less violent race than a thousand years ago, wouldnt you? Until then we have to live with it. Unless were prepared to lock up all mentally ill and violent people for life at the first sign of trouble or by DNA testing. All of that would cause more trouble than what we are facing at the moment.

Well almost we had a shooting in one of our bham hospitals this morning. 3 wounded 1 dead.
Jesus. Is someone going to start a thread every time someone gets shot now? I understand posting about the Oregon and Conn shooting, but is it really worth posting about two dudes on a train in Philly? Someone gets shot in Philly probably once a day on average.
It just seems like an overkill and these threads are more about a political agenda then actually morning the deaths of these victims. Too many threads about these shootings is just going to desensitize everyone to this type of stuff.
since when do murderers follow the law?
"Just gotta keep balling out"
Why can't these freaks just kill themselves? Why take it out on innocent people?
The Government really, really needs to put money into ALL schools to have metal detectors and some sort of security. I know a lot of schools already have metal detectors and every school has SOME sort of "security" but every school should now have metal detectors in my opinion... And an actual Police Officer working at the school. The Officer would cost the school nothing, just would have to buy each school metal detectors.
Just my opinion.. I don't think we should get rid of guns, just need to make it VERY hard to get a permit but let me keep my hunting Shotguns, I gotta have my Duck Hunting.
Just my .02
Problem is the schools can barely afford their teacher salaries, are cutting programs left and right, and are generally receiving less and less of the budget. Couple that with people in general being against any and all taxes... Where do we get the money?
The Department of Education needs some serious overhauling.
