    We're talking about the latter here. The media using terms like "terror-related".

    Ive heard the term dog whistle bandied about to describe euphemisms used by The BNP, the tories, the Daily Mail and the rest of the extreme right wing press, the Guardian and left wing orators etc for around 10 years over this side of the pond.

    Stories coming out from the Empire Buidling shooting, looks the wounded passers by could have been injured by the police

    "Nine bystanders were accidently wounded in the exchange of gunfire, most likely by police, although their wounds are not considered life-threatening. Police fired off 14 rounds."

    The incident does not appear to be terror-related, police said.
    What does that even mean?
    It was a white "gunman" not a foreign "terrorist".
    I imagine the cops on the scene expressing their incredulity at victims being in terror at the situation.... "WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING? IT'S A WHITE GUY. IT'S OK, HE'S JUST GOT A BIT SHOOTY, NOTHING TO BE SCARED OF"
    :lol:

    Let's play a game: predict the state where next week's mass shooting will take place.

    Is gun law reform the sort of thing presidential candidates don't go near because of all the 5th amendment loons?

    Not really worth it considering your taking our rights away you commie!

    If 2-3 people dead is now a mass shooting then it's happening in just about every state at least once a week.

    Yeah it seems like some sort of mass shooting standard needs to be established. Just how many people do you have to shoot to qualify as a mass shooting? 3 dead including the gunman says to me the gunman shoot two. I think we can probably all agree two is not a mass.

    I am thinking four sounds like a good number. Beneath that we should call them small shooting events.

    I think in order to run amok the shootings have to be at least 50m apart if there are less than 4 victims.

    What if the killings are in a small sports hall or community centre, and the killer was running laps? I'd still class that as running amok

    If they start shooting in a busy public place, with a mass of people, does that count as a mass shooting, even if they only take down two before being gunned down themselves?

    I wonder if he ambushed them or were they sent looking for him unarmed and unprepared.

    Seems that they were on a call that had nothing to do with the guy. They just happened to stumble upon him apparently.

    Welsh driver goes on a hit and run spree:

    I can't help but think "how long before a tabloid tries to make a link between this and the fact Carmageddon was released on iOS yesterday"

    Shooting at the university I attended :/

    Nobody died, thank goodness, but still scary. That's unfortunately what happens in South Central LA.

    Shocking, well not really any more. Shouldn't Obama, considering it's his last term go all out for better gun control, revoke licenses etc. He has nothing to lose surely.
  • Deleted user 14 December 2012 18:17:30
    Gun control doesn't wholly matter (though I do agree that it needs looking at at the federal level). It's gun culture that's the problem.

    Aside from the fact that it would never get through and would seriously piss off the gun lobbyists, who also give a lot to the Democrat party. It would also possibly permanently damage his reputation in the future.
