He had the delusion of having superpowers, a death wish, a large budget and considerable explosives knowledge.... without guns to help him, he couldn't hurt anyone!

Let me see; you counter your own argument when you write, "He had...considerable explosives knowledge." Exactly. He could have bombed the theater and killed everyone inside. The firearms simply allowed him to play his delusional part, but without the guns he would have used another means of destruction.

You're not helping! I need evidence to fit my predetermined conclusions that guns are bad!

Let me see. Hmm. I once bloodied my thumb cleaning my Ruger 9 mm pistol. That damned gun bloodied my thumb. I should have thought of outlawing it then.

LOL - damn evil inanimate object - I bet it laughed to itself after it hurt your thumb.

It got a taste of blood - did you have it put-down?

It gave a sinister, dark smile that I could just make out through the dull gray finish.

[-] 1 points by TitusMoans (2451) from Boulder City, NV 2 years ago

No, I gave it a few good wipes with gun oil and put it back in the nightstand, fully loaded.

OMG - it won't get loose will it?

[-] 3 points by TitusMoans (2451) from Boulder City, NV 2 years ago

No. Someone once asked me why I kept a fully loaded pistol next to my bed. I answered, "It wouldn't do much good empty. If a person enters my house uninvited, they probably won't leave alive."

I'm very careful with my guns. At the same time, there's not much sense in having one for self protection if it's locked up and unloaded.

[-] -1 points by DKAtoday (26307) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

True - one must consider their individual circumstances and do what is practical for their situation. An unloaded gun that is out of reach is not any sort of protection. And if you have to use it to protect you and your family in your own home - then it is best if you shoot to kill - wouldn't want your attacker to sue you.

[-] 2 points by TitusMoans (2451) from Boulder City, NV 2 years ago

That's true. My insurance company would have a fit. "You shot the man BUT LET HIM LIVE." Corpses don't sue and can't testify.

And greedy ambulance chasers can't sign up the poor poor dead asshole who attacked you and your family. Justice has a better chance of surviving with a dead attacker.

I've given up on "justice." We have a legal system, which like our political system, is pretty much the property of the highest bidders.

Again it is money that is corrupting the system = for profit judicial system.

Be Rich or Be Screwed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes he could.The list is endless of mass murders without firearms.

[-] 0 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

Green River killer for example. He confessed to killing 71 people.

Wikipedia has a list.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_serial_killers_by_number_of_victims

Can't say I really approve of assault rifle sales though. But murderers do find a way. Sadly tragedies happen sometimes.

[-] 0 points by JusticeF0rTrayvon (-58) 2 years ago

Yeah! I mean, we obviously can't stop people from killing each other, so let's take things away from law abiding citizens!

[-] 2 points by Skippy2 (485) 2 years ago

So, let me get this straight...yer saying if there was just one more law on the books he would have stayed home and watched Sponge Bob?

[-] 0 points by JusticeF0rTrayvon (-58) 2 years ago

Don't be ridiculous, he would have volunteered for a Democrat's reelection campaign like every other responsible citizen.

Are you British?

you're making too much sense... I can't believe you haven't been banned yet.

Stop making sense! You resourceful types are constantly being realistic about how easy it is for criminals to make weapons! There is no such thing as a zip gun!

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (26307) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

BullShit - All you need is a rim-fire bullet and a means to strike it. Zip guns killed people when I was growing-up. Look into it. It is not fiction.

[-] -1 points by JusticeF0rTrayvon (-58) 2 years ago

Oh my. You realize that was sarcasm, right?

All I had to do to make you start telling the truth was say something absurd! Your biases against me would not let you allow my statement to go unchallenged! This is great, let me see what I can do next!

I'm voting for either of the establishment parties!

[-] -1 points by JusticeF0rTrayvon (-58) 2 years ago

Imagine if Timothy Mcveigh had a gun!

It would have been like ten thousand times worser!

Another blame it on guns not the criminal nut.

Without guns he could not hurt anyone!!!! is not true. He would have then probably used explosives of some sort
