If it's Friday, It's Time For Another Shooting

Breaking: Eleven people were killed in shooting in Virginia Beach, police said. They say the suspect is also deceased.

Shots were fired in the Virginia Beach municipal complex Friday afternoon, injuring multiple people, according to the police department. They said one person was in custody.

A Tweet from the police said they think the shooter acted alone. There were no immediate reports on the conditions of the victims.

City Councilman Aaron Rouse Tweeted, “Pray for our City!”

A woman who works in the Public Works building where the shooting occurred said she and about 20 co-workers barricaded themselves in offices with desks. The woman, Megan Banton, told Channel 13 NewsNow that she could hear gunshots and police officers screaming for people to “get down.”

“I just don’t know why anyone would do something like that,” Banton told the station. “I don’t know what would possess somebody to come in and just start shooting at people.”

Virginia Beach Master Police Officer Allen Perry said officers were called to the Public Works building 2, which is in the municipal complex, for a report of shots fired. A specific time was not immediately available. The complex contains about 25 buildings.

“We are working to contain the scene at this point,” Perry said.

Beat me to it I posted in the AW thread.

Most likely an AR 15 as police say it could have been much worse.  Tom will be along to offer thought and prayers of doing something.

Glad he’s dead.

Tom is dead? Doesn't that require a 21 gun salute?

Isn't it odd that we needed to declare a national emergency to sell guns to Saudi Arabia so they could kill and terrorize Yemeni's? yet declaring a national emergency to address our own gun problem is out of line.

Anything under 10 victims is not really newsworthy anymore. Virtually all these atrocities are perpetrated by born 'n bred true blue Americans. Hardly any Muslim or Mexican immigrants murdering crowds of innocents.

This isn’t about a people problem, it’s not a mental health problem.  We (the US) don’t have a monopoly on those issues. It’s a gun problem.  Tom is here daily to remind us of that daily.

I recall a website that tried to keep track of individual shootings but gave up as the reporting was too spotty and the statistics were never picked up by a statewide agency. I believe that was engineered by the NRA to keep this kind of thing from happening.

That's a fact.

VALRICO, Florida — A man in Valrico is facing a manslaughter charge after deputies say he accidentally shot and killed a woman during an act of foreplay.

Andrew Shinault, 23, shot the woman in her upper body with his registered hand gun around 12:30 p.m. on Sunday. Deputies say the two were engaging in an act of foreplay involving the gun.

By: Emily McCain

The woman, in her 20s, was taken to Brandon Regional Hospital where she later died.

Shinault was charged with manslaughter with a weapon on Friday. He was booked into the Orient Road Jail on a $50,000 bond

 I would not want to live in a place where any fuckwit can get tooled up with  serious firepower, thanks to massive industrial and political vested interest, all because a couple of hundred years ago a new country didn't have an army ready in case the British decided to have another go.

Not many people here want to look at old guns from old wars, but everybody here appreciates not having innocents and schoolkids massacred in large numbers every week or two.

You seemed to think displaying old guns with firing pins removed was OK back in that other thread, right up until I pointed out what readers already knew: that they WERE displaying them with firing pins removed.

On 5/5/2019 at 5:34 PM, Happy said:

Removing (and separately storing) the firing pin would work for most if not all old weapons. No big deal. 

I am somewhat surprised that this wasn't a requirement years ago. Displaying working military hardware to the public would tempt the occasional fuckwit. As posted above, grenades and bombs are not displayed live.

I basically don't give a fuck about displays of old guns. If the authorities overreact in removing them, so be it. No big loss to anyone. If someone wants to know all about the WW2 Bren, all the info is available without having one in a glass case.

The point under discussion is the ability of any American to massacre large numbers of innocents, thanks to your gun culture. 

Are the deaths a worthwhile price to pay so that you can feel macho while fondling your own unneeded guns?

What a totally idiotic statement. 

If the Las Vegas shooter had attacked the crowd with a baseball bat or a steak knife, there would not be 50+ dead and hundreds injured.

 

The unfortunate truth is that the USA's gun enthusiasts don't really give a fuck how many children and innocents get murdered, as long as they can have their own guns to play with.

That was the point Obama was just lying about in Brazil! I guess lots of your fellow non-readers buy into it.

I don't share your "so be it" attitude toward nonsensical confiscation of property that was unlikely to harm anyone.

No, I just don't share your "so be it" attitude toward nonsensical confiscation of property that was unlikely to harm anyone. That goes for our TeamD gun bans and confiscation programs too. I'm just not a prohibition fan and think it causes more problems than it solves.

Endlessly repeating this strawman won't make it true.

You sometimes seem reasonable. Do you really think the opposition to TeamD gun bans and confiscation programs is because people are OK with killing school kids? Do you believe, as the Huff Post does, that those kids were victims of domestic violence? I think both assertions are nonsense.

FTFY.  When you guys are willing to infringe on the rights of potentially dangerous, mentally ill folks - then I will believe you're serious about doing something about the problem.  You know damn well that the vast majority of the mass shootings of late could have been easily prevented by infringing on the privacy and due process protections of known mentally unstable people.  Newtown, Aurora, Gabby Giffords, VA Tech, Navy Yard, MSD, and many others all involved known mentally unstable people who couldn't even be approached by the authorities because of privacy and due process rights.  But FUCK YOU, 4th/5th Amendment!   Right?

Yeah, it would suck for the millions of mentally ill folks who are not a threat and will never be a threat..... just as it sucks for the millions of gun owners who are not a threat and will never be a threat.

THIS is a fucking fetish. What is this guy expecting to happen to him in the freaking supermarket that requires three guns?  He's not exactly having any "privacy" issues here, is he?

Look at him. This guy's entire existence, his manhood, is defined by his guns. That is a fetish and has fuck-all to do with self defense or privacy.

You gun strokers have decided that your "privacy" is worth more than the safety and well being of other people's children.

Now own it.

The rest of us will have to act accordingly to assure the safety of our families and kids. Since you lot will not be reasonable and even acknowledge there is a problem, never mind participate in fixing it, you may not be happy with how this goes down in the long run.

Too bad, you had your chance but you sided with the "Cold, Dead Hands" crowd.

YOU are the one who is fine with dead children if you are not willing to go door to door in South side Shitcago, Baltimore ans East St Louis to round up all the illegal guns.

Why would I want to risk my life by visiting the US? If I don't get shot by drug gangs or police, some random nutter with a legal arsenal could kill me. I would also have to eat American food, which doesn't appeal at all.

As a polite guest, I would have to keep my mouth shut when encountering raving Trump supporters and evangelical loonies. The stress induced by not telling  them what stupid cunts they are would give me a headache and spoil my day.

 

I can enjoy the finest bits of your culture by reading and listening to music safely at home in Australia, where basically everything is better than anywhere else.

(Note: By Australia, I actually mean Queensland. I wouldn't live in a hellhole like Sydney if you paid me.)

American food is pretty damn good.  You have obviously not traveled here.

I find I can get the best Italian, Japanese, Indian, Korean, etc here in the US.

The american food? not so good.

In America, you can get fantastic Italian, French, Japanese, Mexican, whatever. 

"American food" to me is corn starch with chemicals, cheese from a spraycan, BBQ with 116 different spices, and the horrors of industrial fast food. That shit is killing you in vastly bigger numbers than random gun violence.

Edit: Razr beat me to it by seconds!

Great seafood, BBQ, roasted pork, braised meats, duck poultry and of course steak in my neck of the woods.  Usually not too pricey. All other types of food as well. Usually cooked by Americans.

Why would I want to risk my life by visiting the US? If I don't get shot by drug gangs or police, some random nutter with a legal arsenal could kill me. I would also have to eat American food, which doesn't appeal at all.

As a polite guest, I would have to keep my mouth shut when encountering raving Trump supporters and evangelical loonies. The stress induced by not telling  them what stupid cunts they are would give me a headache and spoil my day.

 

I can enjoy the finest bits of your culture by reading and listening to music safely at home in Australia, where basically everything is better than anywhere else.

(Note: By Australia, I actually mean Queensland. I wouldn't live in a hellhole like Sydney if you paid me.)

Should you decide to come and visit the United States, you should know that there's a strong correlation between Shitstain supporting Red States and damn, those assholes can't cook worth a fuck. The one exception to this rule would be New Orleans in otherwise brain dead Louisiana; NOLO is actually an occupied Caribbean city. You'll notice that these Red States are mostly in the interior, sort of our crazy uncle in the attic but what we call the flyover states because you really only want to fly over them on the way from and to some place interesting.

Provided below is a handy map suitable for reference purposes. Hope this helps.

The flaw there is Minnesota, other than a few spots in Mpls/St Paul is a food desert. Unless you like white.  They have some pretty good caramel rolls.

More likely cooked by someone whose family roots lie South of the border. 

Back to Guns: I wonder if the big dude shopping with three handguns ever got laid without paying for it? Seems doubtful.

Thanks, I quite enjoyed it myself. Sometimes grotesque exaggeration helps make the point.

Well you succeeded on the last part, a shame you didn’t get the sarcasm in the first post.

Thanks. I'm still trying to imagine the sound of stereo typing. Left hand left channel, right hand right channel. You'd need two microphones and some serious baffles to separate the sounds. You'd also need a manual typewriter.

Would sound a bit like a 180-degree wall of automatic gunfire.

Not very good stereo, I'm afraid.

Are the deaths a worthwhile price to pay so that you can feel macho while fondling your own unneeded guns?

apparently the answer is yes .

 Until the number of citizens (including responsible farmers, hunters, sport shooters, cops, military) demanding major changes outnumbers the gun lovers and the ones who just don't give a shit, there will be no change at all.

Maybe put the price of ammo up to $5,000 a round?

eX1YJDBEqyHIeTHVOJLulCOU5e17Na2QB6EVIlMUSo...you're only for collecting guns from the black people then?

Two can play this game, asshole.

There were white people in the other side of the pic.  See..... I'm an equal opportunity asshole. :lol:

Edit to add:  However, I'm more than happy to round up gunz from white folk who are shooting up their neighborhoods on a daily basis, routinely kill bystander kids in gang war crossfire and terrorize their neighbors and force young kids into their gangs.  Please point out to me where these places exist and I'll add it to my list of house to house search zones.  Thanks.

Yep, its also easily color coded for where the majority of the gun crimes and violence are happening.  The dark blue ones are the ones to avoid.  The light blue and purple states are quickly catching up in terms of gun crime.  In fact if you want an even more granular look at places to avoid gun crime, try here as there are blue pockets within red states that have huge gun crime rates.

@Happy Seriously, if you stay out of the blue areas - you will be perfectly safe in the US.

2 blocks from my house, not a good day for us here. When I heard the sirens I thought it was the usual Friday afternoon fender bender. My neighbor was in the basement and made it out.
