I need $500 to start and file. Please send you generous contribution to my PM.
Anonymous Loser #1 in Colorado shall be his name, from now on, when I mention it.
You are welcome. Best luck!
Needless to say, the media feed it, the media live off these vulgar interests of the mob. What if we press the supermarkets not to carry the tabloids, the PEEPHOLE magazines and such? (I hear the usual 1st Amendment screams from the usual suspects here. Don’t bother.) One supermarket in my area doesn’t carry the trash. Why, I don’t know. There is of course also the idiot box and the Internet. The best we can do is not to consume it ourselves, rise above it, which means, yes, not to start and contribute to lame vanities on this forum, about these worthless individuals and their despicable acts and lives.
Whistling to the wind past the graveyard I am, I know.
Follow the thread when you wake up, and see if the give and take changes your mind. It might be unworkable, but I want to think of something that might actually work (a little) as opposed to the usual nostrum of unconstitutional and unworkable ‘gun control’ nonsense.
I wouldn’t even number them — assure them that they would be indistinguishable and confused with other similar crap throughout recorded history...

Brilliant analysis, my friend. I agree with this. It would have been nice if someone in that theater could have popped off a few rounds at the guy, too - even in body armor, being hit by a bullet is not a painless experience. And that might have been all that was needed for others to stop him as well.
But your point is exceptionally targeted to the problem. Thanks for sharing it with us.
“Hey, I’m trying to think of something that would WORK, not the phony-baloney gun control stuff.”
Evil just is.
Seems to be part of the “Larger Design”.
Be of good cheer. If anyone will be able to recover this miscreant's name a hundred years from now I'll be suprised. Contrary to the crypto-anarchist manifestor and battle-cry that "Information wants to be free", anyone who is really paying attention will know that information really only wants to die. You can take a certain amount of comfort, good sir, in the fact that 500 years from now, our decendants will know more about our ancestors that lived 150 years ago than they will about us, who live in the middle of the "information age". Maintaining data integrity over the long haul is a seriosly tough proposition in the digital age. Who do you know with floppies that might as well be alien artifacts, given how much data they can actually still read from them.
Personally, I gain comfort from the fact that there is a damn good chance that 100 years from now, there will likely to be few, if any ways to tell Ieven existed on this planet. Then again, I might just be weird. Might have something to to with me having been at least somewhat one of those crypto-anarcists I mentioned previously.
The real solution to people attempting to commit mass murder is to stop them with overwhelming firepower after their first shot.
If you don't arm yourself with means of protecting you and yours, then you obviously don't care enough about you and yours.
Me, I wonder what those grinning, simpering faces would look like if they saw someone like me sighted in on their beady little eyes in front of them, and not a bunch of cowering victims. I suspect their bowels would quickly empty. Their fantasy is power over the powerless.
Kill the threat, do not worry about ways to make him less apt to attack. That would be for politicians to worry about, and we all know how useful they are.
Don’t you ever freaking sleep?!!?
Totally agree. Wouldn't stop 'em all, but it would a few I think. Good for the victims families as well. Unfortunately, it won't happen - but no doubt the easiest deterrent because it's after the fact and would make potential evil scum think twice.
Ummmm, maybe not...
I saw the beginning of Huckabee’s program and he said he refuses to speak the man’s name. He began to talk about the shooting but never called the man by his name.
you are on to something...
this shows a problem with our society. He may not be an “evil man” rather an a-moral one, someone brought up with no sense of right or wrong and who did not get this from the society he grew up in.
Don't get me wrong -- he deserves the punishment he will get and he has no excuse -- he could have learned on his own (there are people who have grown up in evil and yet strived towards good), but I ALSO see this as an indictment against all of us for allowing our society to be like this
Damn it, you are smarter even than you seem. I have been up nights with a feeding tot thinking of answers. I even had a great, calm talk with a liberal friend who soon saw the reason why her precious gun control would not have worked. My brother still thinks that if we had more laws against weapons this guy would only have shot 10 instead of 70... But I never came up with an actual solution. We left it at detente; freedom means sometimes kooks abuse it and hurt others.
But you are right. Not sure that one could get away with forbidding the suspect from being spoken of, but if society agreed that naming and discussing the sicko is as disgusting as pedophilia, it would actually be a deterrent.
Punishment and even death don’t deter. They just want to be heinous and infamous.
Hmmm, you are onto something.
But the stoopids of the world just go and put the psyco’s paintings on sale on e-bay for a million bucks. Or our own Govt goes and nails the gun he used to a piece of wood with a brass plaque and makes an idol out of it.
Im with ya all the way, but as will all great plans, there are just too many yahoos around to let it work.
Anyone living under those conditions would be dead in two days from diarrhea dehydration. Only dogs can eat their own waste and live.
“Another problem I have with this is that the psychopaths would have succeeded in changing society...Imagine the control needed to accomplish this.”
Exactly as happened after 911.
An excellent solution to a lot of societal problems is shunning. The problem is that there is no way to achieve universal compliance in a huge and varied society.
When the Pilgrims colonized America, and towns were small, shunning worked like a charm because people were united, and everyone knew the reason for the shunning.
Now there are too many different opinions about practically everything to get universal compliance, and threats of jail or other punishment are too Brokko-bams-like to be tolerated in a free country.
You may have to settle for limited success if we ever try to implement this.
Thank you so much! You made me think about this.
I suggest a trial run using the Kardashians and the cast of Jersey Shore. If it works, society will see the wisdom of your idea.
How about throwing the “producers” of these dysfunctioning morons into jail due to bad “quality control”?
How do the people responsible for raising such an amoral monster get a pass?
How about the parents, concerned for the greater society, get in touch with the cops to keep an eye out for strange behavior...no accusations, just a heads up...?
Lather, rinse, repeat and this issue becomes even more rare than it already is...
A sword or machete can be used to kill more than a dozen trapped people, and they can be easily fashioned from strips of metal.
Great Britain’s gun ban hasn’t stopped the “Yobs” from using edged and blunt weapons. It only prevents good folk from defending themselves.
Could they also refrain from broadcasting that mass murdering maniacs picture all over the place?
And stop breathlessly hanging on his every word dont the jackets In the press realize they are actively encouraging the next massacre?
Why is it that in the previous decades, when life was tougher, guns were just as available, and the ratio of mental disorders was about the same, mass shootings were unheard of? Some would say that those people had not yet been corrupted by moral relativism, desensitized by Hollywood’s fantasy violence and glorification of crime, nor addicted to gory point-and-shoot video games. All valid points - yet one major reason for this hardly gets any notice. I mean, of course, the dehumanizing effect of the so-called “progressive” education.
The truth is that the radical “progressive” ideology (a broad term embracing many offshoots of Marxism) dehumanizes people more effectively than any violent point-and-shoot video game ever could. It pits various groups of people against one another by cultivating envy and grievances that are mostly imaginary and second-hand. In the politically correct book of “progress,” man is no longer judged by the content of his character - but by the color of his skin, class, income, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or any other secondary attribute. The trick is that when a secondary attribute becomes the primary one, man loses his unique individuality and becomes a mere social function, a drone in a collective, a peg in the machine, a sacrificial animal on the altar of “progress.”
“Progressivism” remains more or less benign as long the nation on which it exists like a parasite remains wealthy. But as soon as the wealth is squandered and there are no surpluses left to redistribute, human sacrifice begins.
Noticed many are trying to take the advice offered by you Laz. While it maybe would be good idea to not identify the perp or perps, it is necessary to do the investigation. The media is terrible, these days, in doing investigations thus it is left to people like you, others, and I. The police do fail sometimes to recognize things and this forum (imho) does help to find things the police either misidentify or miss entirely. Still backing away Laz, though I sincerely do understand your sentiment. Will go with last comment.
