Glad youre okay


Pokeno bragged and took credit for causing the Hard Rock Hotel collapse. Posted a big photo like it was a joke. There are still 2 bodies in there. So he can go to hell - speaking of sociopaths...

seriously, what the hell is wrong with you?

in your last post you whine about strawmen, and then here you are doing it again. i never said he was targeting individuals from 1100 feet away, i said he hit targets (ie the fuel tank) from 1100.

god, you are so pathetic.

also, the fact that you think we are exploiting murdered people by trying to keep other people from being murdered, and yet are more interested in calling what kind of gun accessory the murderer used and the pride it makes you feel than you are in keeping murderers from being able to do so easily speaks absolute volumes about you as a person.

seriously, take a look at your souls well being. you care more about blindly identifying the accessory that made it easier for the mass murderer than you care about stopping hundreds from being hurt and dozens from being murdered.

You might as well end this and ask him where the line should be drawn as to what should or should not be owned by civilians.

He'll say, "I don't know" and then you all can move on with your lives.

.

Exactly, it is a tactic used by people who put guns before people, the rights to shoot people over the deaths they cause by making the discussion about the minutiae - the technical nuances between different devices so as to prevent any reduction in guns and, therefore any reduction in death and injury from gun violence.

oh, believe me i know what an exercise in futility, waffling, and nonsense a conversation attempt with only is.


but its always fun to catch him in a few more lies to add to the hall of fame. his nonsense often comes back to haunt him, when he inevitably changes sides of the fence and claims he never said something and is never wrong.

I do not put guns before people... that is just something some seem to miss.

and the technical nuances are vital... 100% vital. As we see people making up reasons to ban "assault rifles" for reasons that would also ban many other kinds of guns.


like do you want any currenrly legal pistols banned?


and we people foolishly talk about the clinton bans they have no idea what was banned and how the bans were mostly cosmetic and some make them less safe... all they do is parrot what someone told them and them claim victory. it is okay I get it guns trigger and scare some people.

Credit? So now you've resorted to blaming me for things that I obviously have no control over?

I facetiously commented about how weird stuff happens whenever I'm around, obviously. Like the "mayhem" insurance company commercials.

But you just can't get along and play nice with others, can you? And when others can and do, it pisses you off.

Sad.

Yes. Follow the rules. Pokeno never should have posted a photo of the Hard Rock collapse (with dead people in it) in the first place. Completely off-topic. There are no building collapse threads in P&R.

Posting a photo of a collapsed building with dead people in it as a joke - making excuses saying it's funny like a TV commercial is what's sad.

Of course not, it would be called a "Boobie Trap".

So I'm going back to NOLA for Thanksgiving. Last time I was there, I walked right by the Hard Rock Hotel and it collapsed a few days later. What kind of mayhem will I cause this time? lol lol

Armed student, officer injured in another Wisconsin school shooting

Police in Wisconsin say an armed student confronted a school resource officer at a Wisconsin high school Tuesday, prompting an officer-involved shooting. Both the student and the school resource officer were injured and transported to hospitals following the incident at Oshkosh West high school, Oshkosh police say.

The incident comes a day after an officer shot an armed student at another Wisconsin high school, about 80 miles south in Waukesha. The student gunman was injured in the shooting Monday at Waukesha South High School.

And you know darn well why I did. My bad for thinking there was even the slightest chance you could behave in a civil manner. I'm not playing this game, go find someone else to try and chase off. I'm sure there's plenty of people left, right? lol

Bringing the Hard Rock disaster in as a joke was off-topic in the "Veteren's" Day thread - and just as off topic in the School Shooting thread - when you tried to keep it going. Those are your posts, not mine.

On a public forum, what you say will be read and commented on.

.

Then stop putting guns before people in virtually every post you make about guns (note, they are almost never about the victims of gun violence).

.

The technical nuances are not vital. The only thing that is vital is that you always and only obsess about the minutiae because you want no sensible analysis of the rates of gun violence, gun death and gun injury in the US. It is not whether such and such a gun can be classed such and such a type or what your partisan opinion is on rules introduced by different sides of politics. It is about how you always put the minutiae of the techical nuances of guns before the people killed, injured or threatened by guns. It is about the fact that far, far, far more people are killed, injured or threatened by guns than are protected by guns. It about how you consider the current balance of gun control in the US between guns and people as "tolerable". You did not express this in regards to the people killed, injured or threatened and not protected by guns, but, as always, only in regards to any threat that could increase new rules or regulations on being able to kill, injure or threaten with guns.

.

As to parroting: all you ever do is parrot the pro-gun lobby spin.

.

As being scared by guns:

- It is not the guns, but it is the people who think they are effective protection when all they do is increase the rate of gun violence in the US so people are proportionally 10 times more likely to killed, injured or threatened by guns - the statistics show that the criminal with a gun is almost never stopped by a "good" person with a gun and all the good person with a gun has done is significantly escalate the violence and put themselves and their family so much more at risk.

- It is the people like you that think they need to prepare for war against their own police and their own government.

.

Every nation needs to set their own rules and controls with regards to their people's attitudes and circumstances. When a country is an order of magnitude worse than equivalent countries, when a black man at the peaks of violence in the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan was safer over there than in home in Miami, then the rules and regulation and call to action to make it safer than a war zone will be different for the US. The US NEEDS far more restrictive rules than other equivalent nations because it has shown that there are too many "guns before people" people that are not mature, stable or sensible enough in regards to guns. It is people like you that make this necessary. People that think the response to yet another round of gun violence events is to argue the minutiae of different gun specs and ignore the actual rates of death and injury inflicted. People that ignore the individual people lost and the impacts on their family, friends and communities in their need to put guns before people.

compassion for the victims need not be said. But I am sure in most cases I have..,


the technical nuances are vital if we are going to change any laws in terms of what kinds of guns are deemed illegal... most vital...more or less.

I parrot nothing. what I say is my own.

so you agree it is a people problem not a gun problem... make up your mind

"people like [Me]" LOL... weird ask the parents of Mike Brown, Walter Scott, Isiah Murrietta-Golding.... how much trust they have in cops! And as to "Preparing" i never said that... But that IS part of why the 2A exists. read a book. and it is not to wage war but to defend. And not just rogue cops or our government... (ask the people at Waco or ruby ridge) but from foreign threats... or just a burglar or home invader or a school shooter (I am happy to say that some schools have WOKE UP and now let some teachers carry guns!)


I am glad you admit you want SWEEPING bans and massive restrictions... that you want the bad guys and cops to be the only ones armed that you are willing to give away a right do it being abused by a few... thank you... I hope you never have to defend yourself, a loved one, or your property... maybe put a sign in your yard "GUN FREE HOUSE"


oh and if you are asking: how many will it take for me to change my mine... there is no number... I HOPE I have the courage and moral fiber to never change my mind... in fact the MORE it it happens the MORE likely I am to want to get some.

Every nation needs to set their own rules and controls with regards to their people's attitudes and circumstances. When a country is an order of magnitude worse than equivalent countries, when a black man at the peaks of violence in the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan was safer over there than in home in Miami, then the rules and regulation and call to action to make it safer than a war zone will be different for the US. The US NEEDS far more restrictive rules than other equivalent nations because it has shown that there are too many "guns before people" people that are not mature, stable or sensible enough in regards to guns. It is people like you that make this necessary. People that think the response to yet another round of gun violence events is to argue the minutiae of different gun specs and ignore the actual rates of death and injury inflicted. People that ignore the individual people lost and the impacts on their family, friends and communities in their need to put guns before people.

compassion for the victims need not be said. But I am sure in most cases I have..,


the technical nuances are vital if we are going to change any laws in terms of what kinds of guns are deemed illegal... most vital...more or less.

I parrot nothing. what I say is my own.

so you agree it is a people problem not a gun problem... make up your mind

"people like [Me]" LOL... weird ask the parents of Mike Brown, Walter Scott, Isiah Murrietta-Golding.... how much trust they have in cops! And as to "Preparing" i never said that... But that IS part of why the 2A exists. read a book. and it is not to wage war but to defend. And not just rogue cops or our government... (ask the people at Waco or ruby ridge) but from foreign threats... or just a burglar or home invader or a school shooter (I am happy to say that some schools have WOKE UP and now let some teachers carry guns!)


I am glad you admit you want SWEEPING bans and massive restrictions... that you want the bad guys and cops to be the only ones armed that you are willing to give away a right do it being abused by a few... thank you... I hope you never have to defend yourself, a loved one, or your property... maybe put a sign in your yard "GUN FREE HOUSE"


oh and if you are asking: how many will it take for me to change my mine... there is no number... I HOPE I have the courage and moral fiber to never change my mind... in fact the MORE it it happens the MORE likely I am to want to get some.

.

There is so much wrong in this post:

.

No, compassion does need to be shown. No, you virtually never show it - You only ever put guns before people.

.

No, you NEVER raise the minutiae of the technical details for laws that seek to reduce the deplorable rate of death by guns, injury by guns and threats or intimidation with guns. You only ever raise the minutiae to argue against any changes that seek to reduce death by guns, injury by guns and threats or intimidation with guns by parroting the tactics and press releases of the guns before people lobbies.

.

No, you virtually only ever parrot others. Too often the timing of "your" latest tactic or argument has been within days after the guns before people lobby stating this in their defense of guns.

.

No, I never said it is a gun problem. I have only ever argued that the problem is too many think like you in the US, so people in the US are 10 times more likely to be victims of gun violence resulting gun deaths, gun injuries and the use of guns to threaten and intimidate people.

.

Yes, people like you who are always with the "defending" shooter, always protecting the gun over the victim whilst showing no compassion for the victim. You stood against Justine Damond with post after post after post about how when she was killed by the police for trying to help them. You argued that it was her fault (it was not), that the police officer would not be found guilty of murder (he was) and about how we should be compassionate to the shooter's circumstances, that she must have done something that made it her fault (she did not).

.

Yes, you have said guns are necessary to be prepared for war with the police or the government and you just said it again.

.

Please stop parroting the mythical "good guy with a gun" fantasy from the "guns before people" lobby talking points: All this does is increase the violence, increase the rate of gun deaths, increase the rate of gun accidents, increase the rate of gun injuries, reduce the rights of people to live free and safe, reduce the safety of people. It is immoral.

.

I hope you never have to protect yourself, your family or friends. It is so much easier where I live because most potential assailants here will not have any serious expectation that their intended victims live in gun fixated fantasy. All I need to do is de-escalate and extricate from a generally less potentially violent circumstance compared to you. After all, in both our countries the assailant is most often a family member or a friend or it is themselves. Far, far, far more people are killed injured by their family member with a gun, their friend with a gun or themselves with a gun than ever stop a criminal, police officer or government official from threatening them. Against this, there are very few examples of the good guy with a gun stopping a criminal, police officer or government official

.

If your method worked and was moral, it would show up in the statistics: Instead the statistics show you are 10 times more likely to be shot and killed or injured using your method than in equivalent countries and the perp is most often the person who thinks they are the good guy with a gun.

.

PS I am not for sweeping bans on guns, I am for reducing the intolerable rate of gun violence in Australia knowing is it 1/10 the deplorable rate in the US. If your rate was instead a fraction of ours, then I would consider why mine is so very, very bad compared to yours and seek remedies - not just bury any call for change in the minutiae by parroting the immoral interests of people with no compassion for the victims were it threatens to reduce their perceived rights.

Having stricter laws, such as more extensive background checks, longer waiting periods, no gun show sales, etc., isn't taking away any rights.


But alas, it is fruitless to think that this fuck faced president will ever do anything to strengthen the laws where guns are concerned.


So cheers to 2020 and a change of the politicans, hopefully we'll get fuck face voted out and someone in who at least has some common sense.

Those involved in the Pensacola shootings are Saudi Nationals who are here to receive training at the Naval Air Station. We are investigating alleged anti-America social media postings by the shooter.

Over 5,000 students from other countries are here in the US participating in the training program, including 852 Saudi Nationals.

The Pensacola shooter (Saudi aviation student) was able to buy the handgun he used to kill his classmates through a gun law loophole that got around him being a foreign national. All he had to do was purchase a hunting license.

floridaonline...You can apply for your Florida hunting license online, at retail agents (sporting goods stores), over the phone, or at county tax collectors' offices. $17.00 a year for residents.

This is how the NRA helps "Support the Troops"


Navy Airman Mohammed Sameh Haitham, left, and Ensign Joshua Kaleb Watson were killed in the Pensacola mass shooting Dec. 6. Not pictured is Airman Apprentice Cameron Scott Walters, who also died in the shooting. (Navy)

My Son-In-Law is/was a Marine (he didn't re-inlist) They sent him to Ukraine to train them, several years ago.

I much prefer we go to their country for training, than vice versa.

What do you know, a Georgia state senator is filing legislation to bans SEMI AUTOMATIC firearms. I could have sworn so many of you claim gun control efforts were not for semi-automatics.

Here's the current version of the bill:

Censorship is ALWAYS wrong, no matter who is doing it or how noble their motivation.
