    Guns and conspiracy theories, together this time

    http://boingboing.net/2013/02/04/for...-conspira.html

    Conspiracy theorist kills his two teenage kids and himself.

    I guess if guns had been outlawed, he would have done it with rope? Or maybe he didn't really do it, and the whole family was murdered to cover up what he knew?
    APF doesn't come in screaming at others about how stupid they are. APF doesn't spam NST with the same tired topic 30 times a month. APF doesn't link to some kook in his mom's basement telling you how to, "Be afraid. Be very afraid" of the world falling down around you. And, when APF is proven wrong, he acknowledges he made a mistake and moves on, rather than harping about "sheeple."

    The thing is that we'll never know.

    "Believe whatever makes you feel warm and toasty inside" is my theory when it comes to dealing with tragedies like this.

    start at your conclusion and work backwards.

    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - Kung fu Monkey

    Usually it's just a newspaper story. But the photos and anecdotes and so on really got to me on this one.

    Obviously the fact that he didn't value or respect human life, or the lives of his own kids had nothing to do with this disaster.

    His beliefs on 9/11 and his ownership of a gun caused it.



    Don't pass up an opportunity to make yourself feel better about your own insecurities and demonize others. Even when some dude shoots his own kids. Capitalize on the opportunity.

    You're a sad dude.

    I agree. We definitely shouldn't do anything to make the country a little bit safer.

    There is a time to laugh and a time not to laugh, and this is not one of them.

    He slapped the kids' aunt and mom around in the past and was arrested for it.

    Obviously a "take them with me" approach from someone who is insecure, violent and has no regard for life,... he even took out the dog.

    Makes sense. So why exactly should a guy like that have guns?

    In hindsight he shouldn't have. How exactly do you protect children and spouses from each other?

    Well if making everyone safer is the goal...

    Fbi statistics state more guns = less crime.

    Countries with gun bans have higher violent crime rates

    Australia,UK, mexico, brazil (heavily restricted) violent crime rates dwarf ours

    http://warnewsupdates.blogspot.com/2...crime.html?m=1

    Isnt it crazy how logic and statistical facts are like kriptonite to the left now... The anti-bill of rights crowd are the new tea party of the left.

    One big bubble, no facts gettin in, just propaganda and outright bullchit circulating inside.
