I am sorry OldOllie- you may not pick this up- but I am just wandering through what I missed. Could you please explain what you meant by escaping the plantation? exactly? Because from where i am sitting it makes you disgustingly racist. don`t give me popular culture either- I neither know, care, nor wish to know. Just explain...

@intrigred: Before anyone -in the theater- was hurt... that`s where the armed guard was, not the restaurant, get it? Gun saved lives.

So one mistake makes the entire event cease to exist? Interesting.

"the snopes article that shows the mass email where you got your misinformation from. There was no girlfriend."

Not to mention that his story contradicts itself. It says the guy shot his girlfriend, but then it says an off-duty cop shot him before anybody was hurt.

Its irrelevant, it not what you meant to say but how the largest common denominator takes it, yes it has racial connotations people don`t appreciate. You can argue the toss as to whether you`re allowed to do it or not but whether you meant it as a joke or not its rude and shouldn`t be done. People are that dumb that they see one man making a joke and think its ok to use it in a derogatory manner and there ya go. Think before you speak, words have far greater impact and reach than you realise

Yup. There`s no problem that can`t be solved with a gun I always say. I even use `em to clear clogged drains.

"Isn`t this how Obama got elected?"

Really? It`s how every politician gets elected. Actually Obama is doing really well on his first term promises. There are only 18 still in the works.

"You didn`t even read your own link, that`s the real story here."

Come on you have to know me by now. I read it. You can`t admit that for the umpteenth-thousandth time you were fooled by a conservative fabrication to make a story more sensational than it really is. What is worse is this time the original source was a chain email that some lazy blogger you read copied. A chain mail! Ha ha.

His girlfriend worked at that restaurant, the gunman fired shots AT the restaurant, AT a cop car AND in the theater. WHY would the "concervative media" need to embellish that story?

@markust, You didn`t even read your own link, that`s the real story here...

I`m not just digging into conservatives with that. If I read a news item that is exactly what I want to hear red flags go off, and I go research at a couple different news sources, because almost always something isn`t right with the story. (I am super super sick right now. Is there supposed to be a comma before the `because"?)

Whether you read it on the email or a blog regurgitating the email, the lie about the girlfriend was burned in your head. All I was questioning was your mention of the girlfriend not the shooting. I`m just saying you question everything liberals say but seam to take verbatim anything you read on conservative sites. Take the made up girl out of the picture and you don`t quite have as sensational of a story as to be picked up by the national media. That is why the girlfriend was thrown in. It adds a human touch, and then people can bitch about a local news item not being picked up.

@markust: Did you read the Snopes? IT`S TRUE!
The detail of the girlfriend being shot may be in error, (she wasn`t at work) but the rest was correct.

Gunman, restaurant, shooting, shot police car, theater, shooting, got shot, no one died.

<<ALL CORRECT!>>

I didn`t get it from a "mass mailing" I got it off a blog, which linked the news-site it came from.

Once again, your link proves my point, so thanks!

Yes, newspapers make mistakes! Look at the "school shooting prevented" posts I made! The article said "police were there within 3 minutes" but the actual video? Cops were over 8 minutes in responding! And an extra 2-3 minutes because the "security doors" were locked.

Again, I`m not for taking anyone`s guns (mostly--I do think that military grade automatic weapons and armor piercing ammunition ought to be banned), but the Second Amendment BS has got to stop. The second amendment does not allow you to own an arsenal. It does not allow you to buy and stockpile enough weaponry and rounds to kill several hundred...deer. It was written for a very specific purpose and you`re undermining and retarding it by lying and misrepresenting it.

Own guns. Fine. Let`s enter into some responsible conversations, reasonable ones, about how to stop stuff like Sandy Hook or Aurora from happening. Almost no one is trying to take your guns. So why not quit misrepresenting one of the most wonderful foundations of government ever by lying about it. Please.

Why must defense always be the response of the self-touted `sane`? Why can`t we all realize that a proper offensive to the causes of such deeds would lessen the chances of it ever happening. Yea it sounds stupid to you, but love would be much better for the future of all of us than to simply arm every last one of us until we start a war with ourselves over trivial bullpoo.

" But I had to turn it off when he repeated the lie that people don`t want armed police officers in schools."
@markust123 your saying you want to live in a world where you need armed guards in schools? Would you not rather live in a world (or country) where armed officers in schools are not required for public safety?

"Congress? Yeah I would vote for him way before the idiots I see on the ballots all the time, trying to vote for the one I think will drat me over the least..."

You guys have got to be kidding. If not, this is what is wrong with America. You like what he is saying because he is saying everything you want to hear. His whole job is to spin, and lie and work stories up so conservatives will tune in. The angrier he can make you the more you will watch. Political pundits are a hundred times worse than congress. They are the reason congress can`t get anything done. They are the reason for the partisan divide in the country. And you want one of them to be a congressman. God help us.

"A man shot his ex-GF in a resteraunt, then went outside and shot at a Police car, then entered a crowded movie theater lobby and started shooting. An off-duty cop, working as security, shot him 4 times before anyone was hurt. Did it make the National News? Does anyone know her name? (iirc it was a Lady-cop) NO!"

I get your point that the media should do more stories on hero`s. What is funny about this is when I google "san antonio theater shooting" the very first item in the list is the snopes article that shows the mass email where you got your misinformation from. There was no girlfriend. You are one of the most skeptical people I know. How could you take a mass email at face value? If there had been a girlfriend shot before hand that probably would have made the national news. Even so it really should have made more of the n

I was completely with him about the role the media plays in creating these shooters. But I had to turn it off when he repeated the lie that people don`t want armed police officers in schools. Columbine had an armed police officer on campus the day of their shooting. My high school has at least one officer assigned. I haven`t heard anyone say they don`t want this. In the same breath he made it sound like gun-free schools can not have an armed police officer. That is complete BS. It is a lie upon a lie. What a lot of people don`t want is to arm our teachers and principles. That is the batsh*t insane idea. If that was such a good idea they wouldn`t need to lie about the officers already in a lot of the schools.

The media are handling these types of things a$$-backwards, i`ll give you that..

Armed guards at schools is not the worst idea ever.. Armed teachers, however, is!

The rest of what he said is just cerebral diarrhea..

I didn`t know the names of the mass shooters. But maybe I just don`t follow them closely enough. Not that it`s relevant though, the media still gives them the attention, and I`m aware it happens.

Heard this statement be made a lot recently though, I can`t tell if this is just people jumping on the most logical bandwagon or people actually trying to make something happen.
Making videos on the internet though? Probably going to be the former.

I put the story of the "would-be theater shooter" in the submissions, but it`s not there now.
Perhaps it`ll get posted?
A man shot his ex-GF in a resteraunt, then went outside and shot at a Police car, then entered a crowded movie theater lobby and started shooting.
An off-duty cop, working as security, shot him 4 times before anyone was hurt.
Did it make the National News? Does anyone know her name? (iirc it was a Lady-cop) NO!

Kid Shoots Robbers With AR-15 15 year-old defends his 12 year-old sister with his dad`s AR-15. It`s in the submissions too.

So this guy makes a LOT of sense! Good one @bacon_pie!
