    This article fails to mention that he had a history of domestic violence. A police officer said, "Taking his past history of domestic violence in consideration, his firearm licences should`ve been reconsidered."

    I heard she teased and taunted him about being legless. She was lack-toes intolerant! In the past it`s reported he hit her with his false leg, police took faux-toes. But he`d have to be sole-less to kill her! How do you suppose the no-shins got into his head? After his accomplishments, it`s a shame this will be his LEGacy.



    I`m gonna burn in hell for these

    @MeGrendel - One of the cops told reporters that considering his history of domestic violence his licenses should have been taken away. My guess is that they probably weren`t because of his status as an athlete/celebrity.

    (before any derping, i used to work on that continent, maybe consider contacting your local government officials and asking them to stop selling their favored proxies arms and fueling the absolutely terrible wars raging across that continent. or look what you can do locally to help people caught in domestic violence get out of it. all of that is more constructive than leaping up and down on this half-assed report on a tragic incident.)

    Yea when a crazy person kills another crazy person with a gun , it should not be news. it should be an obituary; When someone does the right thing and defends themselves and kills a criminal; it should be praised, A lot. More than sandy hook, more than columbine, more than aurora. It`s called propaganda, what they do is cover the crappy stuff to convince the otherwise unalert general population that there is turmoil in the country when there really is not. If all you saw where people using weapons to defend themselves successfully you would be under the impression that guns are a good and NECESSARY tool.

    The United Kingdom has one of the lowest rates of gun homicides in the world with 0.07 recorded intentional homicides committed with a firearm per 100,000 inhabitants in 2009 compared to the United States` 3.0 (over 40 times higher) and to Germany`s 0.21 (3 times higher).

    even the "legally owned guns" comment went over your heads

    drawman, the UK has always had lower total murders. That`s always been a fact going back to the 1800`s when the laws were the same.

    But follow this link, please, courtesy of the Australians

    http://www.aic.gov.au/publications/current%20series/cfi/101-120/cfi115.html

    What happened in 1998 to drastically alter the crime situation in Britain? Britain is absolutely not a model for a safe country. German, maybe, but not Britain. Germany has over 30 guns per 100 people, as well. But it`s really not the guns keeping it safer. Don`t give such one-dimensional analysis.

    gun control... this debate will go on forever.... i wonder if there was ever "sword" control... i digress... i don`t agree with what he did AT all, PERIOD. Now with that out of the way, let`s take a quick trip down a more morbid path. Do you think she truly cared for him? would she have found another maybe broke double amputee just as appealing? maybe just maybe this beautiful woman had a ugly heart. could she have just maybe been after his fame and cash? could she have lead him along thinking she really cared for him? could the feeling that maybe he figured it out and he was heart broken (shame on him for believing her) thrown him over a edge? loss of legs and being dumped by a supermodel, let`s be real, would mess a guy up. i know ive been pissed for sillier things. just saying in a nut shell, it`s a terrible event for all involved but it could be a reminder to all those that dig for gold, get involved for money and fame not love realize that yes folks people kill. just say

    @desslox: "sword control"? YES! In Ancient China any sword-like weapon was strictly illegal, unless you had a "permit". Punishment was instant death (or worse).
    WHY do you think Kung Fu and all those things grew? Because simply OWNING a weapon was ILLEGAL!
    Unless you were rich, of course!
    So who owned weapons in ancient China? The Emperor, Warlords, criminals and assassins. The "general population" was completely helpless.

    Sound familiar?

    As for the rest of your post: perhaps she had a "fetish"? There`s lots of POTENTIAL reasons (other than "goldbricking") that she`d date him.

    But yeah, money is #1... I agree!

    @Andrew155

    Germans + guns = few murders.
    Americans + guns = many murders.

    It`s not the guns that are the problem, I agree, it`s the Americans. For whatever reason, they`re particularly murder-prone.

    So if you know someone is particularly murder-prone...do you allow them access to weapons?

    The issue isn`t whether guns are safe. The issue is whether guns are safe in the hands of Americans specifically. The answer, in my opinion, seems to be a flat "no".

    Regarding what happened in England and Wales in 1998; did you even read the report in the link you posted? It gives you the answer plain as day:

    "Rather than indicating a sharp rise in actual violence, however, this increase is largely the direct result of major changes to the way crime data are recorded in the England and Wales. First in 1998 and then again in 2002, amendments were introduced to include a broader range of offences, to promote greater consistency"

    Unless you have a few fighter jets and tanks and trained commandos in your house, you`re STILL helpless against your government if you`re armed with a rifle.

    Do you know what DOES save you from tyranny? Keeping your armed forces obedient to the principles of your nation, not obedient to your leader.

    The US Soldier`s Creed was changed in 2003. Amongst many changes, it removed the following:

    "As a soldier, I realize that I am a member of a time-honored profession—that I am doing my share to keep alive the principles of freedom for which my country stands.
    No matter what the situation I am in, I will never do anything, for pleasure, profit, or personal safety, which will disgrace my uniform, my unit, or my country.
    I will use every means I have, even beyond the line of duty, to restrain my Army comrades from actions disgraceful to themselves and to the uniform."

    Stopping that kind of change protects you more than a poxy gun in your hand.

    `i wonder if there was ever "sword" control...`

    1Sa 13:19 Now there was no smith found throughout all the land of Israel: for the Philistines said, Lest the Hebrews make them swords or spears:

    1Sa 13:22 So it came to pass in the day of battle, that there was neither sword nor spear found in the hand of any of the people that were with Saul and Jonathan: but with Saul and with Jonathan his son was there found.

    I can`t understand it, I have been repeatedly informed that South Africa is far less violent than the UK. Why would anyone feel the need for a gun?

    It`s not looking good for him, but I recall that the gutter press in the UK nicknamed him Oscar Pissed-off-ius when he chucked his dummy out of the pram during the London Paralympics. Seems to have a short fuse.

    5Cats,

    Sword control was very much a thing in England in the past, hence the use of the bill-hook as peasant weapon of choice. Basically a hedging tool (by hook or by crook referred to the right to gather dead wood if you could drag it from a tree without cutting) but an excellent melee weapon when used with a short handle. Stick it on a longer pole and it worked against mounted opponents. Excellent piece of kit, I have two; purely for horticultural reasons, I have no intention of rebelling against her maj.

    Oh I got it. "Control heads" being people who advocate gun control. Even though I own a gun and would never advocate for complete gun control I`m a "control head".

    Let me ask you a question, completely hypothetical obviously.

    If someone with a criminal history and mental issues bought a gun from a private citizen at a gun show completely legally, and then walked into a mall and killed 30 random people, one of which happened to be your 6 year old daughter, do you think your opinion would change? DO you think you would still be so vocally against closing loopholes and making it harder for people who shouldn`t have guns to get them? Do you think you`d still be posting pics of your guns and little joke images if someone important to you got their face blown off?

    That`s a serious question by the way, just trying to gauge your convictions.

    It`s illogical to think that the vast majority of soldiers aren`t pro-2nd Amendment and wouldn`t turn on the government as quick as the civilians. All the tanks in the world won`t matter if there`s nobody to drive them.

    Soldiers are loyal to the people and the Constitution, not the bureaucrats.

    YES! EXACTLY! Thank you for making my point. Then we admit we DON`T need stockpiles of military grade weapons to defend us from tyranny because the soldiers would never turn on the people.

    Every person can have 1 hand gun for personal and home defense and one hunting style rifle or shotgun for hunting? WTF would be the problem with that?
