committed by a white national
que?
"committed by a caucasian American"

Same meaning, but maybe you'll like it better?
White national means white supremacist.
national =/= nationalist just FYI
I'm aware.

It's pretty deceptive wording. I struggle to believe you didn't expect some confusion when you typed it.

If gun control worked Chicago, LA, New York would be the safest places.

You could've worded it better. The sentence is very misleading.

Not sure what his nationality has got to do with anything regardless.

I honestly didn't until you made that comment. I get the confusion, but didn't think twice that people would misunderstand me.

I agree that I could've worded it more carefully, but I don't think it's misleading. I didn't even consider the possible confusion until he pointed it out and didn't intend anything by it. I seriously hope no one thinks I meant to portray this dude as a supremacist.

I only mentioned the nationality in response to the Twitter guy bringing it up first. We live in a time where any one of these events is followed by a hunt to find out who the perpetrator is because of the current debate on migration and terrorism, so I think it's fair to point out the background of these people. Just like how we should be honest about immigrants committing crimes, we should also counteract the narrative of scapegoating foreigners when we have nationals doing the same thing.

And I just used the word national again without thinking about it. What word would be better?

Fair enough. I wasn't trying to be pedantic, I just genuinely thought you knew something I didn't at first.

Maybe "a white, American national" wouldn't evoke the thought of white nationalism.

also considering the fact that people thought the bangs were fireworks and didn’t start fleeing until they noticed blood coming out of people, a suppressor wouldn’t have had much of a different outcome

It's just Hillary trying to shove political bullshit into this. That old hag doesn't know what she's talking about. That's why she lost.

Yeah, let's politicize the insane.

While we're at it, how about we sacralize the secular?

This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.
The more info I see about this dude, the less any of it makes sense.

It's fuckin sandy hook all over again, except this time people actually died. Guess the anti-gun lobby decided they actually needed to one-up the Port Arthur massacre this time. GG Sarah Brady, your people finally did it.

Nobody died at Sandy Hook except a young man we're meant to believe was called Adam Lanza.

There's one key point of difference. If it turns out the weapons used were actually fully automatic or semis easily modified to perform as such, it'll cause a major blow to the "pro assault rifle" argument. This guy wasn't some mentally ill kid who stole his mom's gun. He passed background checks, collected an entire arsenal and (perhaps) used fully automatic weapons for the first time in decades. As I said, I don't expect anything to happen. But these are different circumstances and if some of the current reports turn out to be true, the weapons that were used and how they were obtained could do a lot to change public opinion and counter the "no point in targeting 'assault weapons'" or "stricter background checks / ownership limitations wouldn't help" talking points. Unlikely, yes, especially considering that 20 dead kids didn't really change anything, but these are different circumstances from most mass shootings.

I get your point, but you forget the lobbying power of the NRA. They'll make sure nothing happens.

Nah. HPA/SHARE act is gonna die on the floor now and I'll expect some new form of the Clinton era AWB to be drafted up for when Democrats take the congressional majority back in the midterm elections.

NRA is still wishy-washy in their leadership on the whole black rifle thing too.

It's a staple of Big Government to make the people not only unable to oppose them, but altogether dependent on them.

Even without gun control, the people of the US are already fucked.

Thanks, Obama.
