That the focus in this thread is on gun-control and not white-nationalism is a bit alarming.

 

I only just read the details, and that aspect of the situation, I agree, is the far more disgusting part.

1. The ceremony attacked was a baby naming ceremony.
2. Five of the people killed were Holocaust survivors. The 1940s final solution didn't kill him; it was the very nation that supposedly liberated him that saw them shot dead because of their Jewish heritage by a guy who sounds just like the very fascists the Americans helped defeat in the second world war.

I am aware antisemitism existed before the second world war, there was the massacre in Russia not too long before. What is most alarming to me is reading that this guy's brand of antisemitism sounds identical to the Nazi regime. It's disheartening to see that one of the strongest anti-fascist nations in the mid-20th century become so limp-wristed on the issue today regarding ideologies of hate. I am not exaggerating here, if your ideology of "Make American Great Again" includes the extermination of Jews and minorities (as this guy's was), you're a fascist - and such sociopathic ideologies have no place in Western society, and we should be vigilant against them.

I agree, again, this goes way above the gun issue, and this isn't the first time in recent years that a hate ideologist has targeted and murdered people on no greater basis than their ethnicity or religion. These killings are just the tip of the iceberg, they come from a growing sociopathic sickness that is occurring right now - and that is the story; because Western society has had this sickness before.

I understand why the gun issue is controversial. On the issue of fascism, there should be no controversy on policy to stomp it out of existence.

Fake news, false flag

Care to clarify? Are you satirizing people who instantly dismiss a tragedy as a false flag or is this what you actually believe?



i believe in banning all quick fire weapons, a small pistol should be sufficient for people to defend their homes and family from a criminal. People do not need a friggin assault rifle and a sniper rifle and grenades and a bazooka and shotguns



I gave up arguing about that stuff. I'm just glad I don't have to live in the US. I love the country and its people and I will happily pay a visit every now and then, but politics there are just fucked up in too many ways if you ask me.



Official member of VGC's Nintendo family, approved by the one and only RolStoppable. I feel honored.

Better back groung check. Also under Trump i think its best if i hang onto my gun. We have seen what leaders like Trump have done to an unarmed population throughout history.

As it stands, people like Tails are almost or just as likely to buy and own a gun as people like Heads. 

This is not true at all. For every single Tails, there are a hundred thousand Heads. More than 99.999% of gun owners don't use their guns to murder people. That is why detecting the Tails of the world is so hard

Many other countries make it look so easy.  West Korea could take a look at how they pulled it off and try to improve upon the measures they take.



disgusting how leftist protesters interrupt a moment of silence for the horrible event. the msm jump on to trump, even though the guy hated trump so its a no win. disgusting. they are mental to the max.

^ so much this.

I actually talked to my dad about this.
He grew up, believeing in the american dream and the ideology of america.
He was politically active when he was young, and leaned to the right (back here).

Today he says the america of his younth, isnt the america of today.
Neither of us would want to live in the US.

Easy solution.... dont allow anyone other than cops or military to own them? seems to work everywhere else in the world.



i can tell you that here in Brazil, gun control didnt work, homicides are on 30/100.000 (In US is at 4/100.000). The criminals are the only ones with access to guns, armed to the teeth even with military equipment.

When you criminalize guns, only criminals get them, it's a saying over here.
