The people crying over Trump are mostly basement virgin, ANTIFA scumbags. No offense to any on here.

But they would never actually take responsibility in their life for anything. They sit around complaining all day.

OMG please. Sometimes you guys on ATS take stuff beyond their intent. Yes I still wish it was his F'ing head. Now taking things to an extreme like you, all those around him are probably like mind. Yes it is horrific but maybe the idiots will act like lemmings and do the same. We have a war going on. You may not believe it but there is a definite coup de ta being performed on our country. Like this president or not it is occurring. I see communist NWO influence. I would rather they shoot themselves than me having to do it in a civil war. I do not relish having ever to take a life for any reason. But if there is a communist insurgence trying to take down my Constitution and country then so be it I will have to fight to save it.

Maybe this guy is a total anti-Trump junkie and was trying to mainline gun control?

Maybe.

He should have taken a gun class or put some time at the range.

Seriously how did he miss his own head?

What, wishing he'd shot himself in the head isn't extreme?? Really?

Are you sure extreme means what you think it does?

I think the guy did enough to himself.

I do NOT think he's insane. I think he believes himself righteous as so many political theists do.

He's trying for martyrdom. Like those Buddhists priests who immolated themselves in Vietnam.

Sanity is, I think, all in the perspective.

I think shooting oneself for a political cause is, by definition, being 4 fries short of a happy meal...he, obviously, if it wasn't an accident, doesn't agree with my medical assessment...

I think that 99 times out of a hundred when somebody shoots themselves on purpose, for any reason, they're not shooting the right person.

What are the odds this "professor" is a staunch advocate of gun control?

Fairly good, given the hypocrisy all to evident in many with his political bent...

I went to Cornell University because they have a superb hotel management program. I went later in life (37) and got a bachelors degree.

The professors there are 100% Socialist. It was the most disgusting display of coddling and enabling that I have encountered in my life. There was not one day while walking to a class that there was not some ridiculous new cause or protest being shoved in my face.

In class, the professors entertained even the most idiotic of ideas proffered by the most stupid people I have ever heard speak. In fact, most professors and TA's encouraged the most outlandish of ideas. I know some of you would say, "Well, all ideas should be nurtured in a college setting...thinking outside the box is good!"

No, not all thinking is good. My favorite thought was in an economics class. Some girl, barely 19, claimed like a good Socialist, that everyone making over $50k a year should be taxed at 50% across the board. The professor applauded such thought and gave her high marks on her class project.
When I asked how this would encourage anyone to invest in their own business or to make any money at all, I was ridiculed and told that it was every humans duty to provide for all other humans. I asked the professor if he has given half his salary to the poor and he said something about certain job areas should be exempt such as teachers...which gained applause from the rest of the class.

Even more astonishing is the grading curve. I consistently held a 4.1 GPA. However, I was deserving of more like a 3.6.
A little secret that Universities like Cornell keep hush hush is that NOONE is allowed to fail...period. The lowest grade I've seen someone get is a C...or 71-78. I have gotten 10 questions out of 100 wrong on a test and still gotten a perfect score. This always bothered me and when I brought up the issue with a professor...I was ridiculed. I asked her why I should get a perfect score when the work done wasn't perfect and why others that had done little work got rewarded with a passing grade. She replied that "in this day and age, everyone deserves a chance to better themselves". When I pointed out that this just encourages laziness and keeps others from striving to be their best, she ignored me and moved on.

I only say all of this because the college culture of today is all about getting things that are undeserved. By their very nature, colleges encourage the best and brightest to become lazy and go along with the status quo while it pushes stupid people into the workforce not knowing anything of any real value. Yet they all have very high opinions of themselves because they have a piece of paper from Cornell claiming they've graduated from a very prestigious University.

I could realistically see 50% of the professors I had classes with in 4 years shooting themselves in the arm for some "cause"....and most of the students as well.

So my overall point is that if all Universities and Colleges are indoctrinating young adults like Cornell is, we are in trouble.
