    So why is what you quote from a random web site any better than what I quote from the first hit on Google?

    He used to not provide links to his quotes. I think perhaps he should have stuck to that policy as it meant one had to put a wee bit of effort into ridiculing his comments. Now all one has to do is click the link to find the absurdity of the "evidence" buttressing his argument.

    He's made up his mind that the Democrats turn a blind eye to gang bangers by not adopting a resolution banning them from owning guns. It's fucking hilarious as it's coming from someone who'd tell you that banning guns means only the bad guys (includes gang bangers) will have guns. That the link is to a website noted for its conspiracy theory bullshit AND doesn't fully reflect reality is irrelevant. You must agree with him or your opinion is invalid.

    it seems the US will do everything it can to stop gun violence - except banning guns. School shootings: Sandy Hook parents' haunting video warning

    The families of children killed in the Sandy Hook mass shooting have put out a haunting video, showing how "back to school essentials" can be used to survive a school shooting.

    It starts out normally enough, with kids showing off their new bags and snazzy folders.

    The mood shifts, when one boy puts on his headphones and fails to see people behind him running from gunshots.

    It ends saying "school shootings are preventable if you know the signs".

    The video has been published by Sandy Hook Promise, a non-profit organisation led by the families of children killed at the Sandy Hook primary school in Connecticut in 2012.



    If this is not the sign that a whole nation has got its priorities seriously wrong, the I don't know what is. Seriously. Fucked. Up

    I believe they've given up on anything of meaning coming from the government as long as it's being run by Putin's puppet the NRA Republicans.

    Dunno if we've done this yet, but the beeb is reporting this morning that colt will no longer manufacturer 'sporting rifles' like the AR15 for the civilian market.

    1) the AR15 is not a sporting rifle
    2) good

    3} AR15's will sell out like hot cakes
    4} How many millions are already out there
    5} Criminals will keep theirs
    6} Other companies also make AR-15-style guns, including Smith and Wesson.

    Agreed, but the yanks have got to start somewhere and it's good that even the gun makers and sellers are starting to realise that perhaps they need to wind it back a bit.

    I wouldn't be giving Colt credit for trying to wind things back. There are enough ARs sitting in the marketplace - they don't need to make more. Oh, they're also not doing well, financially speaking.

    Back in the day thousands of mil-spec weapons passed through my shop for the military and every AK-47 imported by Norinco came our way for serial numbers because the ATF had us down as a licensed gun dealer. Companies sent us weapons for different processes and we returned them to be passed on to their customers.

    On any day we could have armed a battalion in an afternoon. This went on for years. Colt was a big customer but non of their assault rifles came through our shop. Strictly hand guns and mostly revolvers. So not the weapons of choice for day dreaming have a go heroes.

    An off-duty Alhambra police officer shot and wounded himself during what officials described as a "road rage incident" in San Marino on Sunday morning.

    The shooting took place about 8:40 a.m. amid a "traffic dispute" between two drivers that took place in the area of Duarte Road and San Gabriel Boulevard, San Marino Police Department Sgt. Rob Cervantes said in a written statement.


    "The driver of a blue Subaru was allegedly driving erratically in the area," the statement said. "The second driver, in a dark colored Mercedes, pulled alongside the driver of the blue Subaru and attempted to contact the driver."


    "The driver of the Mercedes motioned for the driver of the Subaru to roll down his window," according to Cervantes. "At some point during the contact, it is believed that the driver of the Subaru suffered a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound to their torso."

    Paramedics took the gunshot victim to a hospital, where he was being treated for an injury not considered to be life-threatening.


    No arrests had been made in connection with the incident Sunday afternoon, Cervantes said.
    The wounded person was identified by several sources as an off-duty Alhambra Police Department officer.


    San Marino police declined to confirm that the injured person was a law enforcement officer. No further details regarding the circumstances of the shooting were released.
    Alhambra police investigators responded to the scene.


    Alhambra police referred questions to the San Marino Police Department.
