Satan is anti-gun?

Some innocent people got shot? Clearly this is a satanic conspiracy to remove our privileges to shoot more innocent people!

If he knows his time is short, why is he fucking well bothering?

Wait; why would satan want to prevent gun ownership? Could satan be brought down by a mere bullet? If so, why don't you internet tough-guys hunt his ass?

"Just odd how these things all of a sudden happen after year 2000."
Really? They never happened before 2000?! Shit, guess my memory of the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s, must be faulty.

Education is unimportant? Check.
World events are controlled by forces beyond our influence? Check.
Pointless to look for realistic solutions? Check.
The Republican Party wants YOU!

There are words. They seem to have no order.

on the subject of bullying: I have been bullied all my years in school and I still want to take revenge ssometimes, 20 years later. I understand very well how bullying can change a person and how desperate it makes a person, how lonely they can feel. The only solution seems to be to kill yourself or kill your bully!
And who encourages bullying - folks like you, who are against anything that is not in line with the bible.
So, to take up your logic: Your encouragement of bullying feeds right into Satan's plan!

Um, you do realize that there were school shootings both in the USA and elsewhere before 2000, right?
And anyway, if we assume Satan exists, why would he need to take away your guns? A supernatural being would surely be immune to earthly weapons, right?

Satan is fine with our guns. It's our silver bullets he doesn't like.
12/22/2011 6:57:55 AM
...did you know that the number of school shootings has been more or less consistent for decades, now, but as the killing power of commercially available guns climbs, so do the casualties?
There is no practical purpose for a weapon that can fire full-auto. Even really bad hunters can't use them practically because you're more likely than not to ruin the meat. All it is capable of is massacre. Nobody should have that. Given human nature, I'll go for 'nobody should fucking have that outside of a battlefield setting.'
Do you know how many gun homicides Japan sees in a year? Fifteen of every 100,000 American civilians is killed by a gun each year. Japan, even handguns highly illegal. .07 out of every 100,000 people are killed by them. That means over two hundred times as many people die per unit as
I actually support the right to bear arms. In case of total collapse of civilization or alien invasion or something, the existence of civilian arsenals or various sizes is a good thing. That whole militia concept is actually viable if America as it stands ever falls apart. Also, some people still actually hunt for food in this country. Poor, rural folks.
But for fuck's sake can we please do everything we can to limit the ease with which these circulate in our society which hasn't collapsed, and which can be efficiently oppressed by the government no matter what guns we're allowed to buy because they have tanks, planes, bombs, training, and a defense budget. Do not live in a fantasy world, here. Technology has marched on.

I just don't believe bullying would result in someone doing this that may have been a factor, but what person has not been bullied in their life. Not everyone does this.
Everyone reacts differently. Some try to blend in so as not to stick out too much, some become anti-social, some (like me) start to feel like it's their fault and suffer from lack of self esteem for a good portion of their life, some are able to let the bullying bounce off of them, some confront their bullies, and some go insane and start shooting people. That you "just don't believe" it doesn't make it any less true but I already know that fundies are famous for ignoring the facts just because they refuse to believe them. And so instead of addressing the problem with real solutions you pawn it off on some supernatural being and the problem never gets addressed!

Just odd how these things all of a sudden happen after year 2000.
Yeah, just like Charles Whitman and the University of Texas shooting. That totally didn't happen 34 years before 2000.
Satan knows his time is short he will use these events to try to take away our right to have guns.
And funny how Satan wants to take away gun rights... like his evil minions are easily killed by firearms. If these really are the end times, wouldn't he want everyone running around shooting each other? Why is Jesus the Prince of Peace but is pro-gun?

A supernatural being would surely be immune to earthly weapons, right?
Wasn't this resolved by Buffy ? A demon couldn't be hurt by any weapon forged by man. Sadly the anti-tank round used had been cast, not forged. Kerbloowey.

"Just odd how these things all of a sudden happen after year 2000."
Because nothing at all interesting happened prior to 2000. It's not like there was a World War (or two) or anything like that.
"Satan knows his time is short he will use these events to try to take away our right to have guns."
Why? Is he afraid you'll shoot him or something?
"I just don't believe bullying would result in someone doing this that may have been a factor, but what person has not been bullied in their life."
You need to pull your head out of your ass.
"It is sad what happened I pray for them, and their families."
Well, I'm sure that helped just bunches.

@ Amadaun I'm not entirely sure what you are saying with the quote, "Fifteen of every 100,000 American civilians is killed by a gun each year. Japan, even handguns highly illegal. .07 out of every 100,000 people are killed by them."
If, by which you mean if handguns are illegal, then less people would be killed, I would say the old "only criminals would have handguns" rule would be in force. If you are trying to say that guns are legal in Japan, but nobody kills anyone, I would remind you that the Yakuza are still highly in control of the country and, at least in my neck of the USA, the people getting shot are 95% gang related and about 1% hunting accidents and (very sadly) 4% domestic violence, give or take. Take away the gangs and I'd say you'd have very few handgun deaths.
12/22/2011 8:24:55 AM
Oh no. These things happened before the year 2000, you dimwit. When was Columbine, again?
And I just know that you are most definitely not saying those last two sentences like they're bad things.
12/22/2011 8:37:55 AM
Some day, when I have time (ha-ha!), I will do several searches for phrases like, "Satan knows...", and "Satan thinks ...", and "Satan will..." I'll use the results to put together a compendium of just how all-powerfully clever these child brains think Satan is. Then I'll try to map out his itinerary for the next year or so based on those beliefs. I'm sure he'll want us all to have plenty of sex, but beyond that, it gets a little confusing. I'm sure it will all make sense when I see the big picture. ;-)
12/22/2011 8:52:27 AM
This is just incredible. So a kid goes on a shooting spree in a school, and fundie logic is: keep the guns and ban the schools! How about you just move to Afghanistan buddy?
12/22/2011 8:56:20 AM
Has anyone told them that the murder rate has been going down at a quite a hasty rate since the early 90's?
12/22/2011 9:19:51 AM
Oh please, check out the Bath massacre or the Monday school shooter you ignorant fuckstick. Shit like this has been going on for a long goddamned time
12/22/2011 10:15:07 AM
"Satan knows his time is short he will use these events to try to take away our right to have guns"
Well somebody needs to.
You spend so much time worrying about muslim terrorists yet you so called christians terrorise each other on a daily basis. How many more dead Americans will it take before you finally get the message? Americans and their guns. Oh dear.
12/22/2011 10:20:22 AM
"There is no practical purpose for a weapon that can fire full-auto."
You'll find that crimes that use automatic weapons are converted to that by their owners. Owning an automatic weapon legally is a huge pain in the ass and really expensive.
"Do you know how many gun homicides Japan sees in a year? "
I hate it when people do this. Smaller population, different culture, and holy shit, suicide rate doubles that of the US...well, obviously they need to ban guns harder.
Please, for the love of all logic, shoot fundies down with facts and logic, not more idiocy
12/22/2011 10:21:14 AM
I'd have thought Satsn would want the psychos to have guns. And if I recall, most school shooters were bullied
