cognitivedissonance - 2011-01-09 What's odd is that once I literally *bumped into* Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna at a Safeway in Olympia. It was just your typical two people meeting at blind intersections thing, and I said I was sorry and picked up the groceries and we had a nice chuckle about it.
Lucky for him I wasn't a gun crazed schizophrenic, I suppose.
heyitslozeau - 2011-01-09 Obviously guns are the problem here.
Charles - 2011-01-09 ...Guns are certainly an *issue* here, yes. I didn't realize there was room for doubt.
dead_cat - 2011-01-09 A gun certainly made it easier for Laughton to injure 12 people and kill 6 others in one go.
WHO WANTS DESSERT - 2011-01-09 IF SHE HAD HAD A GUN NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE AAUUUUUUUGH
WHO WANTS DESSERT - 2011-01-09 Seriously. The most disgusting thing about this is that, rather than pause and consider that MAYBE all this violent rhetoric and gun-based imagery isn't the best idea, the right hasn't skipped a beat in turning this into a "VOTE REPUBLICAN OR THE DEMON-RATS WILL TAKE YOUR GUNS!!!11" platform.
CharlesSmith - 2011-01-09 I got news for you Americans with your false equivalences: All countries are fucked, but not all countries are fucked equally. There are degrees. The US is not on the low end of this scale.

freedoom - 2011-01-09 I guess the Safeway isn't so safe after all!
