Quote from: Zetetic on May 27, 2022, 01:54:25 PMGiven everything discussed - the endemic institutional racism and classism of America, the huge number and diversity of guns already in people's hands (legally and otherwise), the nature of the US's two party system - what does "stricter gun control", of the kind that can actually be enacted and will then be implemented, actually look like and what effect can it have?

Quote from: ajsmith2 on May 27, 2022, 09:34:26 AMHere's a pile of worthless, self serving vague hippy verbosity from Russell Brand on this subject that is completely inadequate and helps in no way (on that last point it's a lot like this post from me mocking it).'for me, the gun law aspect of this and the firearms stuff of this.. I'm sure there are many many opinions on that.. but I feel we have a deeper conversation'

Quote from: WhoMe on May 27, 2022, 10:35:42 PMNo indication yet on why the police believed the active shooter phase was over, other than it gave them an excuse not to go in and challenge the guy whilst waiting for backup... Evidently the only thing that'll stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun who doesn't shit his pants when push comes to shove.
QuoteA female party-goer stopped a potential mass shooting in the US when she pulled out her gun and fatally shot a man who had opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle on a crowd, police say.The gunman had been asked to stop speeding shortly before he came back and targeted the group of 30 to 40 people in Charleston, West Virginia.Police spokesman Tony Hazelett said the woman's quick reaction saved lives.The suspect had driven by the area earlier on Wednesday evening when he was warned to slow down because children were playing.He returned armed with an AR-15-type rifle and opened fire from his vehicle on the birthday-graduation party outside the apartment complex in the city.Mr Hazelett told a news conference that the woman who fired back did not have any law enforcement background. She has not been identified."She's just a member of the community who was carrying her weapon lawfully," he said. "And instead of running from the threat she engaged with the threat and saved several lives."The woman remained at the scene after the shooting, and is co-operating with investigators.Charges will not be filed against her, police say.

Quote from: Martin Van Buren Stan on May 28, 2022, 09:51:30 AMSo she did more than the 19 cops outside Robb. Good for her I guess.
Quote from: Alberon on May 28, 2022, 08:19:46 AMWe can relax everyone. The Good Guy With A Gun idea actually works. Though in this case it was a woman.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-61615236Phew! I, for one, am very glad this whole issue has now been solved.
Quote from: Martin Van Buren Stan on May 28, 2022, 11:33:57 AMPretty sure this happened but I can't remember the exact details. A guy shot a shooter then the cops turned up and shot him a few years back.
