Also, since people in this thread are mentioning Epic a lot, I'm pretty certain Epic had nothing to do with this. It was a Facebook booth, with Facebook showing off Oculus using Bullet Train.

1. The shooter was a right wing white supremacist.

2. The Republicans and NRA have been dancing on their graves. Parkland survivors call them out. Companies are disassociating from the NRA in droves.

3. Republicans cut spending on mental health treatment.

4. Republicans cut spending on school safety.

But you just keep on blaming the liberals, k?

Wasn't the white supremacist thing completely discredited as the result of people trolling the media?

Edit - yup, it was. Though he did own a MAGA hat.

I must apologize. I played The Division the day of and every day since the latest media- fueled sensationalized shooting. I'm am a callous bastard and I ask for your forgiveness. Though knowing how most people feel about The Division I expect there can be no forgiveness for playing it.

17 people died. There's been endless fighting over how to prevent it from happening again, since it's happening more than once per year and will almost definitely happen again very soon, and no one seems to want to take any action.

It's odd to me that this is a media problem to you. That you feel personally attacked, as well, because that's the tone of your post. I like you, Prez, but c'mon.

And I in turn am a little dismayed at your lack of taking what I am saying from where it is coming. You know me better (or at least longer than most here anyway).

I did not say not mean to imply this is a media problem. Not exclusively - it is no more exclusively a media problem than it is exclusively a gun problem, a culture problem, or a mental health problem. All of those things add to make the overall issue of our cycle of mass shootings a nice shit stew. But if you don't think the media's absolutely shameful coverage after each massacre is a part of the problem at all in going to have to patently but respectfully disagree.

I think Sandy Hook was shameful. Beyond shameful.
With this one, I think it's a breaking point, and I feel the coverage is actually pretty valid, for once. It's coverage not of the incident, but the debate around it.

Don't get me wrong, I love Stranger Things, but I hope this is the last season. Walking Dead and House of Cards come to mind as good shows that should have ended in the 3 or 4 seasons.

If The Walking Dead ended in the first 3 seasons, they'd still be on the farm!
Though, frankly, it should have ended after that season because that level of incompetent mediocrity shouldn't have been rewarded. It wasn't even the planned mediocrity of most mediocre tv shows, it was just awful.

WE NEED MILITARIZED ARMED GUARDS IN ALL OUR SCHOOLS! NOTHING FASCIST SOUNDING ABOUT THAT AT ALL!

Ask yourselves if any of the school shootings in Israel were committed by students.
Yes. Are you that unable to actually go look it up for yourself? Or are you going to get on the "authoritarian train" like usual and start screeching that enumerated rights should be revoked because it hurts your feelings.

I did look it up. I asked because I'd doubted you did.
Here you go.

Notice that NEITHER of those involve a student of the school.

But seriously, there are fucking armed soldiers at every Israeli school. And they have the resources for this, because Israel has mandatory military service. There are armed soldiers on damn near every street, and, as I said, in every school.

Oh, but yeah, the "authoritarian train" isn't something you're on, even though you appear, in this post, to be advocating for us following the Israel model and having mandatory conscription and armed soldiers everywhere. Banning AR-15s is authoritarian, but making everyone dedicate years of their life to being a soldier of the government, learning how to not question orders from the government, then putting them in schools to check every single person entering, teaching kids to obey soldiers who are taught to never question orders that come from the government... nothing authoritarian there.

Do you listen to yourself? You once advocated for pizzagate, now you say that taking away AR-15s makes us more authoritarian than Israel. You're a mess of a thinker. Probably because you don't think, you just spew whatever YouTube rant The_Donald or KotakuInAction is up on today. Which also probably makes you an incel, but...

Why do you say Democrats and "idiot Lefty Progressives" do this? The Republicans and idiot Right You blame mental health and violent video games.

Ok, but I blame the shooter. Now what? What solution comes from blaming the shooter? In nearly all of these cases, the shooter enters the school ready to, expecting to, and wanting to die. How does anything deter that? We have this shooter alive, and he'll either go to jail for life, or get the death sentence.

Now what? We blamed the shooter, what solution comes from it for preventing this from happening again in March?
That's the problem with people like you - you only care about blame, not preventing this from happening again. You're so obsessed that someone may blame something you personally identify with, therefore in your head blaming you personally, that you squirm around anything that could possibly prevent these from occurring.

Since I'm waiting for the subway, here's a response:

Your list is a fallacy. Post hoc ergo propter hoc. Plenty of genocides happened without banning arms. Plenty of countries banned arms without genocide. Your list is mostly genocides decades later, except the Nazis, who didn't really ban guns, only for Jews.

I'm sure each of those countries had Christians in them during those genocides. I proclaim that the presence of Christians leads to genocide.

Don't respond, my train is here, I'll just mock your lunacy.

I'm not addressing anything. I'm just mocking you. Very pointedly not addressing anything.

It's fascinating that you still think people are attempting to. And that there's any fallacy.

Keep yelling about Reptilians or The Jews or Fluoride or Vaccines. Keep making KXMode's religious views seem reasonable.

My IQ is irrelevant; but you've exposed yours! Comically, rather than even a single counter-argument, you typed all that .. haha.

@Beamer
Don't feed the dude, he's responding to himself now and sounds mentally ill.

I wish you guys could argue... it's boring reading ad hominem fallacy over and over.

Do you have a rebuttal to ANY of my points?

Anything ... just throw it out there!

How about this:

4 Genocides, 100 years, all of them preceded by gun confiscation.

Do you want to challenge this point, or are you aware, but don't care about human behavior patterns and repeating history?

I live in NYC. A few weeks ago, there was a very drunk man outside my window. He was screaming at the top of his lungs. It was hard to tell what about, exactly, but something to do with his hatred for Chinese food. Who knows, really?

The point is, a few people told him to shut up. Not a single person engaged him on the merits of his arguments, they just yelled for the crazy guy to shut the hell up.

You're that crazy guy. You think we're committing ad hom fallacies over and over. What you don't get, likely due to you being crazy, is no one is trying to argue with you. No one is trying to debate you. Those of us engaging with you are doing so because you're absolutely hysterical, and we'd like to see the next insane thing to come out of your mouth.

You think you're the only sane one here, in fact, I'm shocked we haven't heard you say your IQ is 146. But, the reality is, you're bonkers, and we're all enjoying it. We're not arguing with you, we're poking you to see what happens next. Actually debating you on the merits is a complete waste of time. You have none, yet you'd be able to drone on for months if we let you.

The drug war was started by the same hysterical anti-analysis nonsense contained in this thread.


Are 300 people dying in 20 years is enough to change the Constitution?

I wonder what argument you'll use to remove the 1st Amendment!


I've already heard arguments about it from the Democrat-Reddit crowd...

Your use of "Democrat-Reddit" marks you as sheer lunacy. You get that, right? You've made up your own term, and therefore assigned a boogeyman.

Outlaw:

- video games
- movies
- guns
- drugs
- driving

All of these can cause harm in the wrong hands.

Once we empower the state to control our lives fully, then finally, we'll have peace.

One thing is for certain: freedom of choice/options is bad, because it can be abused.

Consider how many people die driving drunk every year, WAY MORE THAN school shootings.

The only solution is a total driving ban.

If you care about 300 dead in 20 years from school shooting, you should CARE way more about removing all other rights which can produce harm in the wrong hands.

If you're consistent.


Interestingly, only two of those can be used by a single individual and cause mass deaths, and its usage is heavily restricted and requires tons of licensing, including passing a test.

Odd, that.

Belittling the thoughts and prayersers isn't that they haven't provided a solution immediately, it's that it's 19 years since Columbine and politicians keep thinking the sole solution is "thoughts and prayers."

There's nothing immediate about 19 years.

I was talking about your everyday citizen who gets pilloried for actual public displays of compassion and consolation. Fuck politicians. They are bought and paid for by whatever lobby aligns with their personal interests. Even if they weren't, our system is broken. Nothing has changed and nothing will change at the political level. You have 19 years of evidence of that by your own estimation. As someone else stated here, anyone close to this boy could have stopped this from happening. His teachers, his guardians, his friends, his classmates. Anyone who took the time to notice he was troubled and hurting and to do something to make him a little less hurt and alone. As a national issue this is lost. As a personal issue, I see potential. I do what I can by reaching out to people who I know are hurting, lost, or alone. Have I prevented any massacres? Probably not. But you never know...

Ah. Yeah, I should have known who you meant,
