Also this doesnt include his strange rant about Natural Born Killers and Mortal Kombat.
Also, the part after when the giant stone head descends from the sky and starts vomiting forth guns and ammunition. That part was my favorite.
When Takashi Miike directs this scene his speech will be interrupted by severe gagging. He will then reach into his throat, eyes bulging and pull out a glock covered in mucus, barrel first.

These comments are some of the finest I've seen in a long while.

This almost caused me a brain aneurysm driving home today. It's not that I don't think it's a totally bad idea. I just know it's full of shit for the problem en total. Virginia tech had armed guards, yet they failed to prevent a shooting. In addition to that, what about grocery stores, movie theaters, libraries, little league baseball games, bowling ally's, high school football games, music festivals..........................
There was an armed sheriff on duty at Columbine
The armed cilivilian at the Giffords shooting almost shot the guy who jumped in the line of fire to save Giffords
There was an armed civilian at Clackamas Mall
And yes, there was a SWAT team at Virginia tech.
So this scenario you think is a good idea already exists and hasn't done anything.
Let's also not forget the Fort Hood shootings which took place on, you know, an ARMY BASE.
If you stop and think about it (the point at which every conservative talking point falls apart), you realize that it's BECAUSE everyone isn't carrying that these shootings don't inflict more casualties. The more an armed shooting man sticks out, the easier it is for everyone to run and for police to pick him out and take him down. It's why casualties usually run from half a dozen to 20 something rather than the 30+ you'd expect from an assault weapon being turned on unsuspecting civilians.
What if everyone had a gun? How in the fuck would you tell apart the original shooter and the "responsible" gun owners in all the chaos? Too many carrying types DREAM about the day they get to draw their gun and play hero; can you honestly say they wouldn't pop the wrong people in their enthusiasm and confusion? Deaths would go up and at least half would be from hero types.
I'm not even joking that starting a national PSA campaign to spread the stigma that gun owners have one inch dicks would be the simplest, cheapest, least intrusive and most effective solution to this whole mess. Instead of PETA posters, hot naked chicks need to start posing for these one inch dick ads.
Almost every right wing belief stems from machoism propping up insecurity and ignorance. Rob guns of their tough guy connection and you'll cut off a huge chunk of the irresponsible crazy at the knees.
FABIO's point on the complications of armed good guys without uniforms is the one I always make. Also, imagine how fast the police could evacuate a shooting area if 1 in 20 people they were evacuating were armed and potentially the shooter.
But yeah, target selection in a chaotic environment is hard for people wearing freaking uniforms, speaking over radio, and dialed into a plan of attack, if friendly-fire rates during wartime tell us anything. Now imagine the fun if nobody can tell friend from foe, let alone who the foe is to begin with.
The ad campaign idea isn't a bad one either.
Imagine how much fun it would be to be a new hire at a school with armed teachers. Or a substitute teacher.

He seriously blamed a 20 year old video game and an 18 year old movie for school shootings.
And while he was on TV some guy was killing people in PA.
With a gun.
But had that guy ever played Mortal Kombat or seen Natural Born Killers?
But talking about guns is OFF THE TABLE!!
Also, isn't it interesting that when someone on the Right wants to invoke video games as some kind of source of violence in our culture, they NEVER mention jingoistic military porn like Call of Duty or Medal of Honor, or Arma, or Battlefield, despite those games pretty much outselling almost every other franchise?

"The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."
I wish someone would ask him if he therefore thinks the Sandy Hook shooter redeemed himself as a "good guy" in the end?
I mean, they should put up a statue to him for stopping himself, right?

Give EVERYBODY guns! Yay problem solved.
a lot of Americans genuinely believe that this is true
I mean how much complete fucking fantasy can one nation bear by its citizens
Cue theme to Good Bad And Ugly
Murder rates in the well-armed Old West averaged around 65/100,000, essentially what Honduras & El Salvador face now. Murder capital New Orleans is about 44, and its 4.2 for the U.S. as a whole.

Woo-hoo! A perfect day. Zero bears and one big fat hairy paycheck. Hey! How come my pay is so low? ... Bear Patrol tax! This is an outrage! It's the biggest tax increase in history!
Let the bears pay the Bear tax. I pay the Homer tax.
