STAMFORD, Conn. — In a chaotic moment early Sunday that was captured on video, five people were shot near Columbus Park in downtown Stamford and one person was arrested, police said.
Today’s mass shooting in America, where all the guns keep everyone so safe.
Who do you call when some crazy has a gun and is shooting people?
Why do you call them?
Because they have guns.
Its not the gun, its what you do with it.
No, it’s the gun. That’s why you never here about mass shootings with a bow and arrow.
The gun makes a crazy person do something crazy?
Is it easier to shoot a bunch of people with a gun than a bow and arrow, sure.
Its also a lot easier to defend yourself.
When a lunatic with a gun has you barricaded in a room, the cops will show up in time to draw a chalk line around your corpse.
If you outlawed and banned and confiscated every gun right now, the only ones you’d get would be from law abiding citizens. Crazies and criminals would keep their gats.
Critical thinking, please use it.
Imagine a bank with a big freakin’ hole in the side. The hole leads directly into the vault. For some reason, people keep walking through that hole and wandering off with armloads of cash.
It would be silly to fix that hole, right? It’s just an inanimate object. Yet I would bet you any amount of money that if you owned that bank, you’d wall up that hole. Suddenly, it would become totally freakin’ obvious that the inanimate object incapable of doing anything on its own is the whole problem.
As for your “argument,” it’s ridiculous paranoid rantings. I’m never going to be barricaded in a room with a lunatic with a gun, for the same reason I’m never going to be struck by lightning or win the lottery.
No one’s trying to outlaw all guns. Either you haven’t been paying attention at all, you’re lying, or just stupid. In any case, we want better background checks and things like limits on magazine capacities. You can’t argue against that, so you set up a straw man and bat that around for a while.
Critical thinking — and honesty — please fucking use them, asshole.
