I find the whole damn thing funny. Obama makes a comment on gun violence and a reporter runs to the ends of the earth with it. And tweets abound.

If you don't see the humor in that degree of partisanship, feel free to hit that "X" up in the top right corner and see yourself out. I really have no interest in this turning into a discussion on why I find hardline partisan politics entertaining.


You still say he was 'promoting an agenda'. I disagree. However, I will not see myself out. I have no idea why you even said that.

Agreed. Which makes his response to the line all the more interesting to me. Even adding the number of deaths from OIF and OEF to the total dead from terror attacks against or in the U.S. the numbers are lopsided.

So don't you think it's time we start doing something to curb the gun violence in this nation?

But how?

That's the question.

ETA. People bent on killing will find a way. So guns is not the issue. The issue issue is how to stop it (crazy people bent on killing). Not as easy as ppl want

Laws and legislation don't help much.

So....how?

Guess he doesn't know that it is not PC to talk about guns in any sort of negative light.

Must be taking notes from trump and saying screw it.

It appears that the shooter was a big Obama supporter:


Warped TV reporter Vester Lee Flanagan exasperated bosses with his 'stiff and nervous' delivery, his inability to use a teleprompter - and by wearing a President Obama badge during an election report, Daily Mail Online can reveal.

Management at WDBJ dubbed the failed newsman the 'human tape recorder' because he frequently parroted what interviewees had told him rather than doing his own journalism.

Flanagan, 41, clashed repeatedly with photojournalists, belittling them in public and intimidating them with his violent temper, according to internal reports.

He was also censured for wearing an Obama sticker while recording a segment at a polling booth during the 2012 US Presidential Election - a clear breach of journalistic impartiality.

Ya he had a lot of supporters, he did win the election twice.

Does who he supported matter?

We could just nuke the inner cities. That would take care of about 90% of it.

Obviously it mattered enough to elicit a snarky, defensive comment.


So what's wrong with contributing facts to the discussion?
I just pointed that this crazy, liberal, jackhole vociferously supported Obama.

Wouldn't it be salient if it turned out he was a big Tea-party guy...(which he clearly wasn't)?
You know it would be touted ad nauseam, if he was.

Obama kicked your puppy? How awful for you...AND your puppy, of course.
A little off topic, don't you think?

Snarky?

I just stated the fact that he won the election twice, you do that with lots of supporters.

I just asked if it really mattered.

Was your point to show some sort of correlation or just simply a FYI?

FYI or not..the information looked like a 'fact' to me.
In fact, the article even displays a copy of the actual memorandum from the station, in which he is admonished for the 'breach of journalistic impartiality'...which is also detailed within.

Don't we all appreciate facts here...especially while discussing and attempting to gain a deeper understanding into the psychology, mindset and worldview of such a deranged killer?

As I've said any number of times on ATS, I'm not anti gun control.

I'm anti blanket legislation removing all firearms from everybody who obeys the law.

The only thing that would have prevented him from getting a firearm legally, would have been a total gun ban.

"what about 9/11"


Because we've had so many of those happen again since! Compared to Columbine and the repeats of that... right?

Its true, where there is a will there is a way, it doesnt mean selling autoloaders at your local walmart to the mentally deranged for the price of a video game console is the best means of curbing the issue either.

Idk I think there is some ground between total ban and a reduction of the gun culture we have.
