    K, cool, thats about 1/10 of the budget for the NRAs janitors.

    The NRA revenue is around $200 million dollars a year, half of that is from membership dues. This $50 million dollars is 25% of the NRA total revenue in a year. The man is worth around $33 billion dollars, that is enough to match the NRA revenue dollar for dollar for 165 years(This is excluding inflation of course), this man if he wanted to could literally launch a single person campaign against the NRA in terms of money. So don't get cocky.

    The biggest problem that I have with groups like these is that a lot of their solutions are really more value bans than actual policies that would be effective, for example the "Assault Weapon Ban", according to Senator Diane Feinstein, who is the author of the bill, the annual average homicide total with these firearms is around 45 people nationwide and 55 people wounded nationwide. That is a casualty rate of 0.03 per 100,000 people, considering these firearms are the most popular and most commonly owned I consider that to be an acceptable cost to allow further sale and ownership of such firearms. Magazine capacity limits of 10 rounds are not really going to be effective either considering the average criminal use of a firearm is around 4 bullets so in order for it to be effective it would have to be 4 rounds or less, there are around 300 million to 600 million magazines currently in circulation that are above 10 rounds.

    The most effective laws are background checks and limiting the sale of to one firearm per month. Straw buyers are the hardest to prevent and that is where the vast majority of the firearms come from that supply criminals.

    The latest information on the suspect is that the man is a known KKK leader that ran for congress.

    Only because most of these guys commit suicide or get killed at the end of their murder spree, resulting in less of them. Other than that the problem isn't getting any better at all.

    Yes it is getting better, gun homicides are down nearly 49% since 1994, non fatal gun assaults are down nearly 69% since 1994 and accidental gun deaths are also down nearly 33-50% since 1994. Since 2007/8 gun homicides are down more than 16%. Why do you consider those figures to not be getting better at all?

    Two of the victims may have been Methodist (by some accounts), so I don't think it is necessarily politically charged or a hate crime.

    But did the gun man know that? If the gunman thought they were Jews and targeted because of that it would still make it a hate crime.

    From everything I'm reading about the suspect this is pretty much a guaranteed hate crime, I mean screaming Heil Hitler and attacking on the eve of Passover.

    No gun problem in America. Carry on.

    Well the good new is that the gun problem is getting better.

    How can you die falling from the third floor? Injuries, yes, but dying?

    Diving head first onto concrete could probably kill from three stories up.

    But its surrounded by counties selling alcohol, so guess what? Plenty of alcohol to be found in my county.

    Considering the people of your county are willing to purchase alcohol than perhaps its time for the county to reconsider its ban.

    America can and should get its weapons situation under control.

    One could argue that it is, homicides are down around 50%, gun homicides are down 50% since 1994 and non-fatal gun assaults are down 69%. Since 2007/8 homicides are down nearly 20%.

    Republicans haven't won the popular vote for President in decades.

    They won the popular vote for president in 2004, so it has been less than a decade.

    For those saying you can't tell a difference, are you saying you can't tell the difference between a non retina display ipad or iphone and a retina display ipad or iphone? Higher resolutions on the same screen size increase the PPI giving you better image quality.

    You have to go all the way around the globe to find an example of mass killings with a knife,

    Ah five people were stabbed to death in Brooklyn last October:

    http://edition.cnn.com/2013/10/27/justice/new-york-mass-stabbing/

    Plus lets say what you said was true that wouldn't be surprising considering the US really only borders two countries, one of which has a population just above 30 million.

    but you can go in any state in the US and find recent examples of mass killings with guns. Heck, a lot of gun homicides don't even make the news in major US cities, they're just too common.

    In the past ~25 years about 26 states have had a mass killing with any weapon type. So I would say there is an exaggeration there.

    Wow, lucky this kid didn't have a gun - how many would have died? This is essentially the control group that proves guns do kill when used by killers, and that without guns, less people will die.

    Who says there would be deaths? Last September 13 people were shot in Chicago in a single incident and no one died, during the mother's day parade last year in New Orleans over 15+ people were shot in a single incident and no one died. Do those shooting incidents act as a control group? All objects can and will kill when used by someone with a murderous intent.

    Amazing! I've worked in four of these part time schools and there is nothing pretty or academic about them.

    Wow! That says a lot about you doesn't it.

    This is not a separatism attack so far at least, it appears a business owner was having a really bad day.

    I wonder if China will entertain the idea of banning metal knives considering pretty much all food can be cut with a plastic knife.

    So, in your opinion, it's "not really bad" to pelt homeless people with eggs ? It is really bad in SO many ways but if you can't see that, I hope you don't have any children or they may be "dragged up" in the same way.

    Sigh.....

    Hmmm lets see here Disillusioned comment was that it was a slow news day, implying the only news that really matters are homicides or some major scandal and that any good news such as scientific achievements are not really worthy news stories on "non slow days" when it comes to the news.

    Considering Disillusioned comment is basically saying aggravated assault or homicides or rape are really the only crimes that matter than yes compared to those crimes throwing eggs at the homeless is not really bad. If you wish to state that homicide, rape and aggravated assault are just as bad as throwing eggs at a homeless person go ahead but I disagree. I don't think it is equivalent, I do think it is a very A-holish thing to do.

    Slow news day, huh?

    Sentiment is kind of sad when you think about it, a slow news day is considered when nothing really bad happens. If only scientific research advancements were given the same treatment as criminal activities....

    I give chocolates and/or gifts on Valentine's Day, out of love and/or friendship. I don't buy into the strictly commercial, obligatory garbage.

    Are you not already buying into the strictly commercial obligatory garbage from western culture by buying chocolates and or gifts on Valentine's Day to express your love?

    Honestly people should be off of windows xp and should at least be on windows 7 by now. Windows xp although good is now very old at nearly 12 and half years, windows 7 will turn 5 years old this year in October-November. If you have a very old computer your best bet in terms of performance is going to be upgrading to windows 8.1. Windows 8.1 runs a lot faster than windows 7 on older hardware.

    The “Second Amendment Celebrations” have drawn the ire of clergy across Kentucky, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported.

    In other words they are losing their flock to this guy and they don't like it.

    McAlister insisted that guns are a great way to reach out to the “unchurched.”

    In other words you are giving guns to sinners.....

    If they had firearms, the death toll would unquestionably be higher.

    I don't think OssanAmerica is doubting that, I think Ossan is simply pointing out that s/he is surprised at the bodycount and wounded count by only using bladed weaponry

    Unbelievable that you suggest a country with such a low murder rate adopt the ideas of a country with a very high one.

    A homicide rate of 5 or less per 100k is not very high at all, in fact it is very small.

    He would have stabbed her before she could get her gun out of her handbag. You watch too many movies.

    It depends, is this attacker only stabbing once or repeatedly stabbing until the victim loses consciousness? Also what part of the body is being stabbed? Unless the victim loses consciousness they still have a chance to fight back.

    Do you mean something like this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=le-QYp2uqmw

    or this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6gcFPjdwiI

    or this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wqutn-R0ZDY

    The truth of the matter is that in most attacks the victims actually have 1-3 seconds to brandish a weapon or flee which then gives them the time needed to brandish a weapon.

    And of course another scenario is that he just shoots her in the back of the head, because if she could get a gun so easily, so could he.

    So then the answer is that in order for any type of self-defense to work one has to pay attention to their surroundings.
