  • The Smoking Gun In Mass Shootings By The Young

    The medical lore is that doctors go into psychiatry to try and cure themselves. (Generally unsuccessfully.)

    If we conflate urban gang violence with rampage killings, and conflate homicides with suicides, I guess. But young Black gangsters fighting over drug territory or old White men with chronic pain or cancer who shoot themselves aren't the problem here.

    The problem is bat**** crazies who murder innocents. The Black gangsters and old White guys have sane and rational reasons to do what they do, the school shooters don't.

    Chicago's total is up to 309 shootings and 70 homicides for 2018. Does the doctor even care?

    Looks to me like the rifle he cut up has both a pistol grip and a detachable magazine -- and possession of such a rifle is a felony in the State of New York.

    New York (and Cali) require "featureless" rifles. (ie. NO "evil features" like a flash hider, collapsible stock, bayonet lug and a pistol grip on a rifle with a detachable magazine are allowed.)

    I doubt he'll be prosecuted because of his over the top virtue signaling, but I would hope that most lawyers would have told him that it was a bad idea to call the cameras and demonstrate that he is a felon. (He was still a felon once he cut the barrel since the evil features are on the lower and since he now has a short-barrel rile, he is both a felon under New York state law, and a felon under Federal law.)

    THIS is what you need to do to an AR to make it New York legal!

    I've read the comment that this is part of a Harrison Bergeron World effort to degenerate the best marksman's skills to the level of an urban gangster.

    "They’re setting things up for their messiahs return in 2020: Hillary F. Clinton. I still say she is going to run, I would bet a fortune on that but I’m broke, but make no mistake - she feels it is her destiny. She is on a mission from Satan."

    I agree she'll be a candidate again by 2020 but I think she is more likely to be a candidate for a liver transplant than a candidate for President.

    I heard that she graduated from wine to hard liquor since her defeat at the hands of Trump in 2016. She is not in good health, she's prescribed multiple medications and the alcohol isn't helping. Or so I heard. (Source was a Clinton author who was interviewed on WOR. I don't recall the author's name but it will probably come to me as soon as I post this. He was touting his new book.)

    The last Democrat to serve 2 terms as a New Jersey governor was Brendan Byrne and he left the job in 1982.

    The last time that the state had a fiscally conservative governor was 1944, the state spends way too much money. It's #1 for property taxes in the US and #3 overall for taxes -- which are now not deductible over $10K. The state is screwed and there is no way to stop the bleeding at this point. Not unless the state finds a way print money.

    New Jersey is high on the short list of states for bankruptcy and receivership.

    Better that Republicans be out of sight when the ship steams at full speed into the iceberg.

    More like Democrat-appointed judges changed the map to benefit Democrats.

    The Pennsylvania SC is elected. This was part of the D's mini-tsunami last year that followed Clinton's defeat.

    It should pass, and I'd rather see this happen than President Hillary. At least the fact that the map doesn't look gerrymandered means that some of the districts are competitive and winnable by Rs. The issue in electoral maps for the Ds is that they all tend to live together in cities, so in order to spread their votes around takes some creative gerrymandering.

    I don't believe Mitch when he says that the Rs are going to lose seats in November. (Or, at least I hope.)

    How do you define “Mentally ill”. Did you know that you cannot remove constitutional rights from someone by placing them on a list? Did you know that it takes a due process adjudication and jury trial? We dont just deem people as “risks” and remove constitutional rights.This discussion shows painful ignorance of law.

    It's not difficult at all!

    Prior to passage of the Community Mental Health Act of 1963, it was routine. It must have been easy and done routinely because mass school shootings only began in 1966, with Charles Whitman at the University of Texas. Before that, almost everyone who was demonstrably bat**** crazy was committed to a psychiatric institution.

    Normalization of abnormal behavior began in 1963, continued to the American Psychiatric Association voting that homosexuality was not a mental illness in 1974, and continued to 2018 when someone who has the police called to his home 39 times, posts pictures of tortured animals on the internet and has the FBI called on him twice for threatening a school shooting doesn't raise any eyebrows.

    It's all "defining deviancy down." Everyone is a unique and precious little snowflake today.

    "also donated more than $1 million to a PAC supporting Jeb Bush’s failed presidential campaign bid."

    So he took $1 million of his hard-earned money and he threw it out the window!

    Kinda doubt he's a Trump supporter.

    Maybe he should send his money to Kamala Harris or Fauxcahontas in 2020.

    "She really thinks nobody should have a gun but she will start with 18-21."

    Not "nobody". She thinks she should have a gun. She thinks taxpayers shouldn't have guns.

    If we can't trust 18 year olds with AR15s (and .22 target rifles), alcohol and cigarettes, how can we possibly trust them with M4s, tanks, helicopters and voting?

    Let's raise the age of military service and the voting age!

    Psych wards are needed.

    That's the big problem.

    Community Mental Health Act of 1963 -- "mainstreaming" severe mental illness.

    Instead of being treated, sometimes involuntarily, many end up in prison or jail. And they aren't treated at all.

    I find it hard to believe that jailing the mentally ill is cheaper than treating them in mental hospitals.

    And mass shooting victims aren't the only casualties of this. They are probably only a tiny fraction. Look at the Hepatitis A epidemic in California, spread by homeless people defecating in the street.

    "Three of the nation’s 10 most deadly mass shootings have happened in the last six months, taking the lives of more than 100 people."

    In September 2011, Islamic terrorists murdered 2,977 and US courts are peachy-keen with unfettered immigration from countries involved with Islamic terrorism. And there is no Constitutional right to immigrate to the US.

    Mass shootings are all tragedies and the acceptable number of deaths from mass shootings is zero but the US has one of the lowest firearm homicide rates of any country in North, Central or South America (liberals compare the US with Canada's homicide rate, but always ignore homicides the other 21 countries).

    We should be asking why law enforcement always knows about these bat**** crazy people but never seems to be able to do anything about it.

    Mass school shootings just didn't happen in the US prior to the Community Mental Health Act of 1963. (Nor did people live on the street in cardboard boxes, nor did the streets smell of urine.)

  • Opinion: The Parkland shooter's AR-15 was designed to kill as efficiently as possible

    "Given that, there is no reason that these weapons should be broadly available to the civilian population. But, given that they are, let’s all understand how they are designed to kill people, not simply to shoot targets for fun. "

    Actually, doctor, the .222 Remington round, the basis for the 5.56 NATO/.223 Remington round used in the AR was designed from beginning as a varmint hunting round.

    It is effective shooting varmints of many different species.

    If you know a way to design a rifle round and a rifle that's effective at shooting a herd of feral hogs, but is human-safe, please tell.

    Also, medical errors kill about 1000 times as many Americans as rifles every year. Perhaps you should get your own house in order first?

    They don't waste any time do they. How about we discuss why the FBI was wasting all their time trying to help a multiple felon who is above the law steal the Presidential election instead of investigating a lunatic who was making terrorist threats on the internet, who was writing Allahu Akbar, who was dressing up as an ISIS member while posing with guns and knives, who was concerning people so much that they banned him from school grounds?

    Not just the guns -- the Instagram photo of the (apparently) freshly killed toad is a clue. Jeffrey Dahmer enjoyed torturing and killing animals.

    55 years ago -- prior to the Community Mental Health Act of 1963 -- someone who was bat**** crazy would have been forced to get help, like it or not. And now, in 2018 -- everyone is a unique and precious little snowflake, the mental hospital population is very small and the jail/prison population is very high. A person who is mentally ill can't just demonstrate that he is dangerously mentally ill before being incarcerated. He needs to be dangerously mentally ill AND murder 17 people. Mass school shootings didn't happen before 1963. The first was 1966.

    Solution? I'd propose repealing the Community Mental Health Act of 1963 and reopening mental hospitals.

    It all began with the Community Mental Health Act of 1963 that deinstitutionalized the mentally ill. (And made it difficult/impossible to institutionalize new mentally ill.)

    Charles Whitman shot and killed 16/17 at the University of Texas on August 1, 1966. School shootings have been occurring with regularity in the US since then.

    “We were told last year that he wasn’t allowed on campus with a backpack on him,” said math teacher Jim Gard, who said Cruz had been in his class last year. “There were problems with him last year threatening students, and I guess he was asked to leave campus.

    The short version:

    1. The shooter was bat____ crazy.

    2. Everybody knew he was bat____ crazy.

    3. Despite everyone knowing he was bat____ crazy and scaring everyone he came in contact with, nothing could be done, because ... he was a unique and precious little snowflake.
