Obama seems amenable to the NRA idea of armed guards in schools.

On today's "Meet the Press": David Gregory asked him what he thought of having "armed guards at every school in the country," adding "That's what the NRA believes. They told me last week that could work." Obama said:
You know, I am not going to prejudge the recommendations that are given to me. I am skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools. And I think the vast majority of the American people are skeptical that that somehow is going to solve our problem. 
Of course, we are also skeptical that gun control is going to solve our problem. My only point here is that Obama didn't denounce the idea and treat it as crazy, which seemed to be the left/liberal spin last week after NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre made the proposal. Obama is saying that the idea deserves consideration. And to say you doubt that it's the "only answer" is to imply that it may belong in a package of items that together are the answer. In fact, later, he said: "I'm going to be putting forward a package..."

Obama went on to say that he was going to follow "the old adage of Abraham Lincoln's":
That with public opinion there's nothing you can't do and without public opinion there's very little you can get done in this town. 
That's a paraphrase. What Lincoln actually said was: "In this and like communities, public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail; without it nothing can succeed. Consequently he who moulds public sentiment, goes deeper than he who enacts statutes or pronounces decisions. He makes statutes and decisions possible or impossible to be executed." I'll leave it to you to decide who's the better wordsmith.

By the way, when did Washington folk acquire the habit of tacking "in this town" onto every other sentence? And don't you think there's an interesting difference between "opinion" and "sentiment"?

Further evidence that liberals have given up on demonizing LaPierre came from Dianne Feinstein on "Fox News Sunday" today. She's going to introduce a bill banning assault weapons and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, and moderator Chris Wallace asked her "Why is that more effective than the NRA proposal to put armed guards in every school?" She said:
Well, in the first place, 1/3 of America's public schools does have armed guards. 
Ha! No wonder the spin has shifted. You can't call it sheer lunacy if it's happening in 1/3 of the schools already. Too bad the liberal sentiment molders didn't check the facts first. Too bad they had a hair trigger.

It could be a great idea if we can put the new guards under the umbrella of the TSA, and use the money we confiscate from the rich to pay for it.

Big Mike said...

You're asking a liberal to get their facts straight first? Sheesh, Professor. Why not ask for a solid gold Caddy ATS why you're at it?

Big Mike said...

I am skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools.

Yes, he's skeptical of every idea that didn't originate in an Ivy League faculty lounge.

But let me know if anyone comes up with a better idea than shooting back, okay?

Maximum number of deaths in a mass shooting when the shooter was confronted by someone armed: 3.

Maximum number of deaths in a state with really strong gun laws but elementary school is a gun-free zone: 26, not counting the shooter.

Surfed said...

Yeah the Glocks and Tasers worn in the halls of inner city academia are a certain comfort to me in my teaching dotage.

Tyrone Slothrop said...

Here's The O's idea of a compromise:

We'll let you put armed guards in schools if we can ban "high capacity magazines".

Hagar said...

More B.S. The legislation is going to come from Feinstein and a picked seconder, and he is going to act like he does not have anything to do with any of it.

Hagar said...

and so much for his "Lincoln moment."

edutcher said...

How about just arming and training a select number of people in each school, rather than a few uniformed SA or SD types?

Baron Zemo said...

You know he is lying.

Obama knows he would be a great Vampire hunter!

O Ritmo Segundo said...

You are such a news junkie. But this isn't news. He's simply acknowledging the irrational majority of Americans who like the idea of arming the school house gates as much as a rational majority wants stricter gun control laws. Finessing between those two levers so as to reduce the pull of one while keeping up the momentum of the other requires this move.

Jay said...

I am skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools.

Um, nobody, anywhere, has suggested this is the only answer.

bpm4532 said...

I'm sure they would want to federalize it as part of homeland security...

Jay said...

I am skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools.

And the reason your daughters attend a school with armed guards is _____?

Jay said...

She's going to introduce a bill banning assault weapons and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, and moderator Chris Wallace asked her "Why is that more effective

Um, the use of semi-automatic "assault weapon" rifles (with high capacity magazines no less!) in US homicides is statistically insignificant.

So of course it won't be effective.
Senator Feinstein has no interest in being effective.

Gahrie said...

1) President Obama couldn't attack the idea of guns in the schools because he and his cronies send their children to schools with armed guards every day.

2) I teach high school. We have unarmed Campus Security officers on campus every day, school police (who are armed and there is usually one on campus) and a regular presence by the local police department. our district's schools are fenced and gated also. (When they put the fences up I joked that we should change the school dress code to mandate orange jumpsuits....my campus really does resemble a prison now days)

Jay said...

as much as a rational majority wants stricter gun control laws.

Yes, because calling for more laws is like super duper "rational" and stuff.

Retard.

Surfed said...

A senior high school just down the street from my feeder middle school has a police sub stationed attached. Easily 20 Glocks at any given moment. Probably a fair number of shotguns too.

Baron Zemo said...

There will be no gun control laws passed. Get over it.

Obama couldn't pass gas let alone a gun control law.

He is a miserable failure and will go down as one of the worst Presidents in American History.

I Callahan said...

I think our hostess is reading way too much into this.

The good professor just wrote a post talking about how the president sounded moderate and reasonable. Why would the paragraph in question be any different?

I don't think he's amenable to this at all. Like any other leftist, I think he wants to use this tragedy as another reason to sell people on the idea that guns don't belong in anyone's hands unless they're cops, private security, and the military. There isn't one single shred of evidence he believes anything else.

His MO has always been to seem reasonable and rational on TV (when he decides to be interviewed), and send out his minions to achieve some ultra-left goals. Anyone who would have some of the people in his cabinet is a tried and true leftist. Despite his seeming to be reasonable.

Joe Biden is his minion on this issue. He has ALWAYS been an enemy of private gun owners. This keeps the president above the fray.

How everyone doesn't see this is shocking to me.

Ivy said...

I agree with Jay --- The president is boxing the air. Who said that it was the only answer?

I Callahan said...

Um, nobody, anywhere, has suggested this is the only answer.

Yup. President Strawman.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Am I supposed to be as impressed as Jay is by the intelligence of his catcalls of "retard"?

That's really, super-duper intelligent stuff.

I Callahan said...

There will be no gun control laws passed. Get over it.

They will try. You'd have to be completely naive not to believe so. If by some snowball's chance it doesn't pass this time (he'll blame the Republicans in the house if it doesn't), for the next shooting (and there will be one) he WILL get it passed.

Then we'll see if the US Supreme Court can do what it was chartered to do, as opposed to creating law.

I Callahan said...

Ritmo - what laws could we pass to lower the chances of a school massacre?

Jay said...

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Am I supposed to be as impressed as Jay is by the intelligence of his catcalls of "retard"?


Hey stupid shit, Connecticut already has an AWB, waiting periods, gun registration, background checks and all the rest. Connecticut has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation.

Given the abject failure of these policies in stopping such a massacre, you think calling for more policies will help?

Further, you don't own firearms, you don't know anything about firearms (the use of semi-automatic rifles in homicides in America is statistically insignificant) and so of course banning "high capacity magazines" sounds like a good idea to you. You don't know what they really are or why someone would want one.

But banning things we are ignorant about isn't a wise approach to public policy.

edutcher said...

Again, "everything Barack Obama says has an expiration date".

Take none of this seriously.

Paul said...

Biden said he was the biggest supporter of the 2nd Amendment, Obama said the 2nd Amendment was an individual right and he supported it. But they said that BEFORE they were re-elected. Now they are wanting to ban guns, register the rest, and finger print the owners.

THEY ARE LIARS and not-so-closet SOCIALIST. The answer to give them? HELL NO. And our Congress had better know WE VOTE.

Last time this happened under Bill Clinton, the Democrats lost both houses by huge margins. WE VOTE. Got that?

Indigo Red said...

Kind of hard to argue a Democrat position against putting armed guards in schools when it was Pres Bill Clinton provided $140mil to put armed guards in schools immediately after the Columbine shootings.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

"Hey stupid shit" is Jay's way of saying that state lines somehow can't be crossed in America and that the lower gun crime stats in other countries (whose borders can be sealed against gun importation) are therefore meaningless.

Apart from his charm and graciousness, his ability to move goalposts at will is really impressive.

Jay said...

O Ritmo Segundo said...

"Hey stupid shit" is Jay's way of saying that state lines somehow can't be crossed in America


Yes!

Because that is totally like what I said, idiot.

And, to top it off, "state lines" were crossed in this school shooting.

They were!

Again, you never miss an opportunity to beclown yourself.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Jay's use of overall homicide statistics is his way of saying that he doesn't care about 20+ kids getting mowed down in a kindergarten.

I suppose that if I were like that, I'd use language as inappropriate and hostile as he does.

Sometimes I wonder if he was bred in a lab experiment.

Cedarford said...

Levi Starks said...

=====================
You nailed it, Levi.

The NRA's "Armed Heroes in Every School" was music in the ears of Big Government Obamites.
That would be a bigger growth of "Security Theater" and new jobs in government than the idiot Dubya Bush's TSA.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

So Jay, how many kindergartners have you blown away? How many would it take for you to feel, you know, "free"?

Do let me know. And keep up the abusive language. It really convinces us of the worth with which you value human life.

Jay said...

and that the lower gun crime stats in other countries (whose borders can be sealed against gun importation) are therefore meaningless.


Hysterical.

Now Ritty the retard thinks we should seal the border!

Or something.

Hey stupid shit, how did the UK's handgun ban work out?

Oh:

Shocking statistics released last night show a 14 percent increase in murder and manslaughter in England and Wales between 1998 and 2007.

There was also a 28 percent increase in deaths from bladed weapons. Those killed by shootings increased by the same figure.

Most shockingly, there was a 57 percent increase in deaths caused by punching and kicking.


Keep flailing. Retard.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Apparently the retardation that Jay suffers from is significant enough to convince him that the UK has a higher homicide and gun death rate.

I, OTOH, am not as retarded as he. But perhaps he believes that more extended discussions with him could change that.

Jay said...

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Jay's use of overall homicide statistics is his way of saying that he doesn't care about 20+ kids getting mowed down in a kindergarten.


Yes!

What's even funnier is you lack the self awareness to realize you're only screeching about 20 kids! (they weren't killed in Kindergarten either dumbass) in order to push for unpopular and ineffective policies.

Because you like care and stuff, you silly little pussy.

Really. You do.

And we like all believe it too!

Baron Zemo said...

Relax yourself. There will be no new significant gun control laws passed by this Congress.

Now if you said that Obama would overstep his authority and usurp the role of Congress and issue executive orders and regulations....well then you would have something.

Jay said...

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Apparently the retardation that Jay suffers from is significant enough to convince him that the UK has a higher homicide and gun death rate.


I think a great approach in proving you're not a retard is by continuing to argue against things nobody ever said.

Jay said...

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Apparently the retardation that Jay suffers from is significant enough to convince him that the UK has a higher homicide and gun death rate


Please point out where I said that you non-gun owning pussy.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Because you like care and stuff, you silly little pussy.

Well, we can all tell that you don't - so you've got that going for you. And, oh yeah, you can use invective to make erroneous cases for things that no one is dumb enough to believe.

Who feeds you your talking points? Do you dress up as a gimp for NRA meetings or something?

Jay said...

O Ritmo Segundo said...lower gun crime stats in other countries (whose borders can be sealed against gun importation)

You can't name any such countries, stupid shit.

technologist said...

Hard to be "skeptical" if the DOJ proposes armed security in schools and funds grants for the program.

"The COPS in Schools (CIS) grant program is designed to help law enforcement agencies hire new, additional school resource officers (SROs) to engage in community policing in and around primary and secondary schools. CIS provides an incentive for law enforcement agencies to build collaborative partnerships with the school community and to use community policing efforts to combat school violence."

Um, I'm not the one arguing for more of the same failed policies.

You non-gun owning pussy.

Baron Zemo said...

Gun owning pussy!

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Jay proves that he is not a pussy by making light of the mass murder of 20+ kindergartners.

That's some form of heroism, that.

He must make you guys proud.

Jay said...

O Ritmo Segundo said...

And, oh yeah, you can use invective to make erroneous cases for things that no one is dumb enough to believe.


Yes!

Because a functionally illiterate, non-gun owning puss arguing against strawmen is like super-duper adept at identifying "erroneous cases"!

Really. She is!

Baron Zemo said...

Hot gun owning pussy!

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Jay,

Keep masturbating into your gun. Just make sure that you keep it unlocked and loaded.

Jay said...

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Jay proves that he is not a pussy by making light of the mass murder of 20+ kindergartners.


Yes!!

You tell 'em, pussy!

I mean, you have all sorts of examples to support that claim!

Further, wanting more laws (which don't work, have never worked and will never work) shows you care, big girl.

It does!

CWJ said...

Thread's over.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

I nominate "Jay" as the successor to Wayne LaPierre.

He will really improve the image of the organization that LaPierre has done so much to improve.

Pogo said...

Doesn't it seem pointless to parse the pronunciations of Obama, when every word he says is a lie, or in service to a lie?

What is there to gain? One learns nothing except the subject he is lying about, which was not in question.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Geez, CWJ - you don't think that Jay's doing a great job of, well...

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Baron - you should be careful with photos like that. Jay might get confused and unsure of whether he's more likely to lust after the doofus with the crazed look on her face or the device she holds for him to put his penis inside of.

Jay said...

As a point of fact, the shooter in Newtown, Conn passed the Kindergarten class room and went into the next 2 1st grade classes and opened fire.

But hey, ritty the retard isn't interested in facts.

She is just busy caring don't you know.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Jay cares about human life so much that he gets the grade level right! REALLY, WHAT A MAN.

Jay: "Sorry to support policies that got your kid killed, Ma'am, but I do believe he was in the 1st grade. Please, please, tell me how great a person I am for that."

Yep.

Pogo said...

Remember Ritmo's quote about his purpose at Althouse:

""It's good to know that the stupidest threads are just ripe for the threadjacking. I'll be sure to leave a trail of turds on every one of the brain droppings here that suit my fancy. Getting you shit-eaters to complain about the taste after opening your mouths wide and saying "Ahhhh..." to every bad idea under the sun is very satisfying, I must admit."

O Ritmo Segundo said...

So Jay thinks it's more important that 1st graders got killed than that kindergartners got killed.

That's focus. That's accuracy. That's determination.

Deadly determination.

Synova said...

"A senior high school just down the street from my feeder middle school has a police sub stationed attached. Easily 20 Glocks at any given moment. Probably a fair number of shotguns too."

My daughters' high school has a police substation on the other side of the parking lot and I've always assumed the cops actually assigned to the campus are armed.

I'm not saying this as an endorsement, just a statement that it's the status quo.

The NRA hardly suggested something radical. Obama's school has armed guards, so does my daughters' school. Plus the police sub station.

And mandatory displayed ID cards at all times.

Levi Starks said...

A thread is a terrible thing to waste...

Oh fuck off Pogo. Jay's belligerently defending the right to arm child murderers, here! Give him some breathing room!

His head needs a wide berth.

Jay said...

O Ritmo Segundo said...

What is funny is you lack the self awareness to see that all of your "facts" are the same as your assertion that a "Kindergarten" was shot up.

Pussy.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

I'm wondering if there's a label on the back of Jay's head that read: "FLAMMABLE. KEEP AWAY FROM SOURCES OF HEAT OR IGNITION!"

Pogo said...

Just quoting you on your primary purpose here, Ritmo.

Readers should be reminded thereof.

Jay said...

O Ritmo Segundo said...
Jay's belligerently defending the right to arm child murderers,


Note that when you reveal yourself to be wholly ignorant on the matter at hand, you're left with these silly, over the top assertions.

But of course, we expect that from you.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

I say Jay is doing a great job of proving his, you know, manliness by complaining that it's wrong to care about kids being killed.

He is definitely a credit to the Althouse commenting community.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Not primary, just one, Pogo.

As a physician, you should be aware of multiple causation.

But maybe you're too ideological for that.

Jay said...

O Ritmo Segundo said...

So Jay thinks it's more important that 1st graders got killed


That's right silly pussy!

I mean that is totally what I said!

I mean, how can you be so smart and waste your time here with these stupid, unintelligent hillbillies???

Pussy.

I Callahan said...

And this one had promise.

Hey stupid shit, you don't care. You don't have the foggiest idea what happened, nor does it matter to you as it is just a prop to push for more of your idiotic and ineffective policy preferences.

So you can stop the charade now.

Big Mike said...

@Baron, if that's your cat you need to have it work on its prone positioning.

@Jay, it's a waste of blood pressure to engage a hard-core troll.

@Ritmo, if you bothered to check the facts, you'd quickly understand that Connecticut already had pretty much the strictest gun laws in the country. Locking the school doors slowed down the shooter almost not at all. And all the school lockdown procedures did was collect the children so they could be more readily murdered. Apparently all the police had to do was show up and the shooter killed himself. Can you explain why it took 20 minutes before the police showed up even though the 911 call was about shots fired in an elementary school?

Big Mike said...

@Jay, PS, I just took my blood pressure meds.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Hey stupid shit, you don't care.

Jay proves how much he cares by belligerently insulting anyone deviating from his gun-love impulses with cries of "idiot", "stupid shit" and, yes, "pussy".

Jay, how do we know that you care? I mean, I bet it's obvious to you, we can hear all the caring just bleeding through all the self-important and self-righteous vulgarity that you scream here.

Jay said...

Big Mike said...

@Jay, PS, I just took my blood pressure meds.


Heh.

Also note: The shooter was seeing the school psychologist.

He had a caring, attentive mother and was affluent.

Yet it still happened.

Big Mike said...

@Surfed, if you don't like Glocks or Tasers, try this but please use the Professor's link to Amazon.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Big Mike - Congrats for realizing that unhinged wackos like Jay are taking the wrong approach.

You calmly state some facts, I'll even acknowledge the anomaly you see in them.

But you can't argue that on a country-to-country comparison, this line of thinking bears out.

Just try to answer, if you can, why you think that is.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

He had a caring, attentive mother and was affluent.

Yet it still happened.


Probably because he didn't have someone as calm, mature and civilized as "Jay" to unburden his problems with.

Jay said...

Can you explain why it took 20 minutes before the police showed up even though the 911 call was about shots fired in an elementary school?

Of course not.

Her worldview can't handle this fact.

Sam L. said...

One third? 1/3?? Really? And nobody's said this before? Why has this been hidden?

Jay said...

Also note: Violent crime in Australia (an island that apparently should have taken ritty the pussy's advice and sealed the borders) increased after their gun ban.

Gun crime increased in the UK (an island that apparently should have taken ritty the pussy's advice and sealed the borders) increased after their gun ban.

Also note: US States with concealed carry laws have lower violent crime rates than those without.

But don't worry, the silly little pussy cares about those "20 dead Kindergartners" (there were no 20 dead Kindergartners) in Connecticut!

Big Mike said...

@Jay, I hope schools are trying to draw useful lessons learned from Newtown. I hope that one they draw is to get the kids out of the building and running away as fast as they can move, and not cornered in a room hoping that the killer doesn't stop at their door. That lesson should have been drawn from Virginia Tech, where Professor Livi Librescu, a Holocaust survivor, died trying to block the door to his classroom after directing the students to jump from their second floor windows to safety.

@ Big Mike according to this article the principal and psychologist lunged at the shooter.

Officials said she died while lunging along with the school psychologist at the gunman in an attempt to overpower him, The Associated Press reported.

I don't know what law enforcement is recommending to these schools in this scenario. Would you suggest is an option though I would imagine it would take some work to convince a 7 year old to jump from an open window.

???

Hysterical. You mean like Columbine?
In 1999, the U.S. experienced five incidents alone.


You're a non-gun owning gullible idiot.

AprilApple said...

A package from Obama and the democrats means waste and fraud, debt and tax payer money funneled to their interests. The do nothing to fix the problem. Lip service and David Gregory.
...and while some suck-up moron gets a new job working for the government, 3 others in the private sector get a pink slip.

How can we not protect our kids, waste money and trample on the constitution? I'm sure the democrats can prepare a nice package.

Jay said...

If only Austrialia (surrounded by water!) could think of a way to stop the import of guns!

It is a common fantasy that gun bans make society safer. In 2002 -- five years after enacting its gun ban -- the Australian Bureau of Criminology acknowledged there is no correlation between gun control and the use of firearms in violent crime. In fact, the percent of murders committed with a firearm was the highest it had ever been in 2006 (16.3 percent), says the D.C. Examiner.

Even Australia's Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research acknowledges that the gun ban had no significant impact on the amount of gun-involved crime:

In 2006, assault rose 49.2 percent and robbery 6.2 percent.
Sexual assault -- Australia's equivalent term for rape -- increased 29.9 percent.
Overall, Australia's violent crime rate rose 42.2 percent.


I guess those dummies running Australia aren't as smart as our resident gun banning pussy, ritmo.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Hysterical gun-lusting shrieker "Jay" uses the outlying Columbine incident to dispute the indisputable fact that the average mass shooting rate over the ten-year period during which it was in effect was lower.

Either he doesn't understand how averages work or he gets trigger-happy over isolated incidents.

I don't think you'd want someone that innumerate going hunting with you. He could confuse a fellow hunter for a pack of wild game.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Oh that's one hell of a non-ideological source, gun-lusting artillery orgy man!

O Ritmo Segundo said...

I guess those dummies running Australia aren't as smart as our resident gun banning pussy, ritmo.

Which Australian officials did you quote, Mr. GunLust assault defender?

Jay said...

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Either he doesn't understand how averages work or he gets trigger-happy over isolated incidents.


Hey stupid shit:

There were 5 mass shootings in 1999.

There were 7 in 2012.

You can stop now, idiot.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

I will match shrieking gun-luster "Jay's" ideological source with an equally ideological source.

But this one quotes the conservatives who ran the Australian government and enacted its laws.

What a hysteric.

Jay said...

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Remember pussy, fact you don't like, don't exist.

The world is easier that way.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

There were 7 in 2012.


Ha ha ha! Innumerate gun-luster "Jay" doesn't realize that:

1. The ban was in effect in 1999,

2. 5 is less than 7,

3. Averages over a period of time require more than just single-year analyses.

What a hysteric!

Jay said...

O Ritmo Segundo said...
But this one quotes the conservatives who ran the Australian government and enacted its laws.


And note there isn't a singular mention of the violent crime rate in Australia.

Want to guess why that is, stupid shit?

Oh, the article did provide us with this valuable insight:

"We too value freedom. But that's not the freedom to own machine guns in the main streets of the U.S. of A.,

Don't worry pussy, you probably think "machine guns" are legal and easily obtained in the main streets of the USA too.

Jay said...

. The ban was in effect in 1999,

Yes retard.

And there were more mass shootings in 1999 than there were in 2011.

Get a fucking clue, pussy.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Ok, you hostile, belligerent, gun-lusting hysteric. Which Australians did you quote? Are they unhappy with the results of their laws?

Or do you propose to speak for them?

bagoh20 said...

"Um, nobody, anywhere, has suggested this is the only answer."

Well, I am. At least if you are talking about an answer that will actually have a positive effect.

It's surprising to me how little that matters to many people offering answers. Despite what we say, I think we don't value children as much as other things we wish to protect, but the politics involved in all things related to children is very charged. Blindingly charged.

Could you imagine such a heated debate about how to protect anything else: money, celebrities, politicians, dangerous material, sensitive installations? We would simply say use armed guards, because it's not worth risking not protecting it and just relying on people to not break the law as some kind of assurance. Such a suggestion would be laughed at by all sides.

I don't think armed guards are as effective as armed teachers, i.e. some minimal number of trained teachers with a locked firearm in the classroom that could be accessed withing a few seconds only by them.

If you want the children protected at the highest level for the lowest cost, this is it, and I think all you would need to do is allow them to do it with certain requirements and they would do it voluntarily in most cases. If a community does not want that, then they don't have to do it, but should be held liable if it someone walk in and shoots peoples' kids totally unopposed.

Get a fucking clue

While mistaking his gun for a penis (or trying to replace his penis with a gun), the hysteric known as "Jay" lost any ability to understand the meaning of numbers and pretended that what is shown in one year indicates a trend and that multiple-year analyses are best ignored.

Wonder if he looks at climate science that way, too?

@Ritmo, country by country? It's all on the side of American gun owners as far as I see it.

Australia has always had restrictive gun laws, but in 1996 that didn't stop a mentally disturbed individual from gunning down 35 people. After that event there was a major gun buy-back but in the intervening years the only impact seems to have been a lowering of the rate of suicide by firearms -- partially offset by an increase in the rate of suicide by other means.

Norway had much stronger gun control laws than we will ever tolerate in the US, including waiting periods and background checks, but that didn't stop Anders Breivik from killing 69 people, mostly children.

In the modern insanity that is the UK, where it is illegal to come to the aid of someone being attacked, or even fight back very hard, guns are essentially entirely banned except for police and for the humane dispatch of animals. My understanding, based on this article is that the gun crime rate in the UK, once the lowest in the world, is strongly trending up.

In the US, where the various estimates I have seen range from a low of 150 million guns to a high of 350 million guns (i.e., more guns than people), the gun crime rate is trending down.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Many more than were killed from 1994 to 2004.

The graph's right there for your perusal, you innumerate, retarded, gun-fucking doo-doo brain.

Arguing numbers with someone who can't count is not my cup of tea.

Big Mike said...

Coming from the idiot who can't quote an Australian saying their violent crime rate declined after their gun ban.

Actually, Australia always had pretty restrictive gun laws. I think you are talking about the massive gun buyback program in 1997. The statistics I've seen show a minor dip in gun-related crime in the first few years after that buyback program, followed by regression to the mean. As I wrote above, the only major and lasting impact has been on suicide by firearm, partly offset in corresponding increases in suicide by other means.

Jay said...

Oh no, people in the UK on record talking about their violent crime rate increasing despite the gun ban!



THERE has been a huge increase in being people shot, stabbed and even kicked to death since Labour came to power.
Shocking statistics released last night show a 14 per cent increase in murder and manslaughter in England and Wales between 1998 and 2007.

There was also a 28 per cent increase in deaths from bladed weapons. Those killed by shootings increased by the same figure.

Most shockingly, there was a 57 per cent increase in deaths caused by punching and kicking.

The figures, supplied in Parliamentary answers by Home Office Minister Vernon Coaker, emerged just days after Home Secretary Jacqui Smith claimed the Government was winning the battle against violent crime.

Last night the Conservatives said the statistics showed that she was wrong.

Shadow Home Secretary David Davis said: “Despite the claims it is clear serious violent crime is spiralling out of control.

I spent a chunk of today shooting at a different range today. Long lines. They had two free classes for teachers getting intro to handguns. One teacher's comment to me was she felt safer just because now she knew how to unload a handgun should she find one. Other thing I observed at range and the 3 gun stores I stopped at was ZERO inventory of 308, 223, and 5.56 ammo and anything "AR15". Gun economy is going gangbusters

What's funny about this is that from 1982-1994 1.5 people were shot per year in mass shootings per year.

From 1995-2004, 1.6 people were shot per year in mass shootings per year.

Why it is almost as if you're a silly parody or something.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

You're a bit of a hysteric, Jay. If the conservative UK press wants to argue for more gun ownership, ok. But there's a balance there. Are they arguing for assault weapons? Probably not.

You are about as unbalanced as they come but, hey, don't let that stop you from spinning like a top. (And screaming obscenities at parents who don't feel your personal pain about the issue).

At some point I hope we give up on the "Gun Free Zone" advertising insanity.

"Again, though -- the theater was a gun-free zone. "That's where the chickens go," said Block. "They go to where people are unarmed." The shooter made a series of smart tactical decisions that minimized the risk of anyone stopping him. "I'm gonna guess one thing. He plays computer games. They'll find computer games at his house. He's not military. He's an educated kid."

Um, that isn't what is being argued.

But you can go on trying to change the topic.

The facts are uncomfortable for you.

Dr Weevil said...

Ritmo seems to have missed this recent, thorough, and heavily linked, article.

Here's the part that struck me: "Before their bans, both countries [the U.K. and Australia] had lower violent crime and murder rates than the United States. Ten years later, all U.S. violent crime categories have decreased, yet they have been increasing in the UK and Australia. The biggest tragedy: by 2007, UK women were raped twice as often as American women, who were able to partake of their civil right of self-defense. Australian women were raped three times as often."

Does Ritmo want to double or triple the rape rate for American women? That is one of the likely effects of the policies he supports.

Jay said...

Big Mike said...

Sorry, but in the world of bicycle helmets and over all babying of our children, I have a hard time believing today's 7 year olds would act like that.

Jay is dividing up victims of assault by the type of crime and obviously favoring female victims over the gun murders of little kids.

You can't even discuss the victims of crime without committing yourself to some kind of war over them.

Levi Starks said...

There is a reason banning guns in England hasn't reduced murder and crime the way they'd hoped.
It's because they haven't been able to successfully ban butcher knives. But don't worry, they're trying

Jay said...

So we have 2 island nations that are totally capable of stopping the importation of guns (a ritty the retard suggested course of action) that have banned citizen ownership of guns, yet have seen spikes in violent crime over extended periods of time.

And despite those facts, ritty the pussy rejoinders with:

Jay the Joke doesn't realize that a percentage change in rate from an already low rate is not the same as starting from a much higher rate.

Big Mike said...

@Ritmo, thank you for the link. I read Megan McArdle's thoughtful article but had forgotten her chart. The three things that jumped out at me looking at the chart is that (1) the US is more violent than most places, but I don't know how far we'd deviate from the other countries if one left out our inner cities; (2) our rate is falling precipitously; and (3) it does not break out gun crimes from other forms of assault.

But the money quote from McArdle's article comes when she points out that gun confiscation is a ship that sailed. Yup. Liberals won on Roe v. Wade and sanity won on gun ownership. What can I say, Ritmo? Did you think your side would win them all?

Jay said...

If they only had an assault weapons ban!

Finland's established culture of gun ownership (1.5 million firearms in a country of 5 million people) was called into question after two horrific shooting incidents at schools that took place within a year of each other.

On Nov. 7, 2007, a teenager in Tuusula killed eight people before killing himself at Jokela High School. Just a year later, on Sept. 23, a gunman shot 10 people on the campus of Kauhajoki city's School of Hospitality before turning the gun on himself


And a low rate of gun ownership too!

Because banning guns reduces crime (see Chicago as a great example)!

Big Mike said...

@Levi, they are! My wife made us a beautiful roast tonight, and as I carved it I was thinking that very thing -- that the UK would like to ban the carving knife I used.

On the other hand, perhaps the folks in the UK are thereby spared late night ginsu knife commercials so it's not all bad.

O Ritmo Segundo said...

Liberals won on Roe v. Wade and sanity won on gun ownership. What can I say, Ritmo? Did you think your side would win them all?

Well, I'm not sure of the utility of pitting the interpretation of one right with the interpretation of the other. But the 2nd amendment won't be repealed and the most recent landmark ruling does set out parameters that are reasonable given that, even if some states feel pressured by the NRA to see how far they can go with them (i.e. defying traditional strictures on places, etc.)

Also, Scalia reasoned, circuitously that the Heller ruling was based on the choices that Americans made to arm themselves, making Saturday Night Specials unpopular only through a longstanding ban. If something had been made illegal, or was otherwise unavailable, then we can't know why that shouldn't be the reason for its lack of popularity. Scalia relied on popular will to explain, rationalize and justify a legal analysis that was ultimately derived from a legal or technical limitation in the first place.

So yes, the scope of regulation of the "type" of arms needs a lot of further interpretation. Heller wasn't all that unreasonable in other respects, even if the Justices took advantage of how one clause was used to introduce the amendment.

Jay said...

My sis-in-law went batty. She sent out an email that sounded like she wanted to take all of her friends on a trip by "leaving their containers".

It took nine-months and several violent acts before a judge would send her to get psych help.

She is "normal" now, back in school, new BF who knows the back story, etc, etc.

Krauthammer had it right a week ago when he said the motherf_cking ACLU gave crazy people the right to die homeless on the streets.

Fortunately, Speaker Boner will stand firm and block gun control. Thank God Mittens didn't win. He'd be all over gun control like magic underwear on Bring'em Young.

Joe Schmoe said...

Relax yourself. There will be no new significant gun control laws passed by this Congress.

Actually, some of us conservatives are deeply concerned about the crime of rape, and your remark is cheap and thoughtless. Teaching women about situational awareness, and, frankly, arming them are both steps in the right direction.

It's all old white men garagie!!

Gun sales have surged in the region and across the nation in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre as enthusiasts rush to buy firearms they fear will be outlawed by a fresh push for gun control.

Gun dealers requested nearly 5,150 background checks on purchasers in Virginia eight days after the Dec. 14 shootings in Newtown, Conn. — the largest number ever in a single day, Virginia State Police said. And in the days since, the daily number of background checks has regularly doubled corresponding totals from the previous year.

Surfed said...

@Big Mike - I'm partial to Henry's and Winchesters. Like Naval Colt 45 revolvers too.

Jay said...

Guns are far more popular than inky's silly, ignorant political beliefs:

Assault rifles are sold out across the country. Rounds of .223 bullets, like those used in the AR-15 type Bushmaster rifle used in Newtown, are scarce. Stores are struggling to restock their shelves. Gun and ammunition makers are telling retailers they will have to wait months to get more.

Store owners who have been in the business for years say they have never seen demand like this before.

Dr Weevil said...

So someone who calls himself 'O Ritmo Segundo' and can't stop talking about his opponent's penis thinks PJM can be dismissed are "unprofessional" for choosing a funny name? What a disgusting hypocrite.

Of course, I never suggested that Jay had "behaved in any manner befitting a civilized society on this thread (or any other)", but only Ritmo's ideological prejudice and self-love could possibly convince him that he's behaved any better on this thread (or any other). His performance here has been contemptible, and is not excused by anyone else's. If Jay has been (slightly) more foul-mouthed in his insults, Ritmo has been a lot more dishonest or (at best) inept in his argumentation. He is simply wrong on the issues.

Anyone who finds the arguments in the PJM article I linked too "abstruse" is intellectually disqualified from discussing the topic at hand. It is quite clearly written, and Ritmo is either too stupid or bigoted to understand the argument, or too arrogant and dishonest to admit to admit that he is wrong.
