someone at the press conference just asked "how helpful it is to have the suspect alive?"

and the cop was like "well we need to ask them questions and determine a motive so we can stop this from happening again"

lol what, was that the student press or something?

they also detained some random asian dude who wasn't the suspect, feel bad for that guy

Yea, it was a bit more stressful today than usual. I'm only a couple buildings over from Caudill Labs where it happened, but thankfully my wife is a bit further away on another part of campus. I never heard anything and have several locked doors to get to my office, so wasn't super worried. It was my youngest first day of school at high school and that got a bit jacked up too. Thankfully his brother was able to pick him up since the school buses were going to be completely fucked.

Guess he was not feeling successful in his phd program and if his life was going to be over anyway might as well kill his professor?

Millennials already are not able to build wealth as much as our parents And the situation is even worse for genz. I would expect more young people to feel even more despair If their life plans go off the rails. We need to do a better job for the youth but also people need to learn that there’s always another path than the one you planned for.

Is this really true or just a talking point to offload accountability? I don't feel I've been systematically disadvantaged as a supposed Millennial. The decade following the financial crisis was boom times.

I definitely agree that the economy itself has treated millennials worse, beyond your usual cyclical stuff

But regardless, I think there are a lot of societal factors that come into play as well, that are understated. Be it how childcare is being handled, income responsibilities, etc. All encouraging more spending and consumption (and I don't just mean like clothes or whatever, the bigger stuff)

Sucks for people who put off buying a house. Early 2010’s was the time to jump. Now it’s impossible for anybody young to get into real estate.

However I don’t see where moron and that article are getting their information. I see couples a generation younger than us buying up all these big houses going up out here in country. Houses I couldn’t possibly think to afford, not that a big house is the end-all-be-all of wealth building, but still. And all these damned 80k dollar Tahoes, Expeditions, and Wagoneers people are driving…wtf.

was a murder intended at one person in a gun free zone

not very honest to be implying some sort of mass shooting event
you can most definitely acknowledge the trauma effect even so, but regardless

"No student, no parent, and no American should have to send texts like these to their loved ones as they hide from a shooter."


Perhaps not technically in the tweet itself, but I've seen so many people just inferring the "school shooting" type thing from all of this. when in reality (from the unc forum):
Quote :
"At least we know that it was a "normal" premeditated murder, as opposed to some random act of violence where the shooter just wanted to hurt as many people as possible.

Murder is always bad, obviously, but murder directed at no one particular person or that has no real motive behind it besides extremist ideology is the stuff that's really terrifying."


Apart from the place it occurred, it isn't much different from the many other gun murders that happen to be singled out other than using that school aspect of it, which as shown wasn't the point

guess it doesn't really matter in the larger scheme of things though (like the issue overall).

They didn't know that while it was happening and while they were panicking and reacting in real time. It was a shooting at a school followed by a lockdown and a police response. They were, in fact, hiding from a shooter because there isn't time nor the ability to know this is a targeted murder. The point is people shouldn't be required to react this way in the face of repeat gun violence.

I understand that which is why I said:
Quote :
"you can most definitely acknowledge the trauma effect even so"

as part of the debate

Quote :
"The point is people shouldn't be required to react this way in the face of repeat gun violence.
"

What does this exactly mean? Like if someone were against gun free zones, they could say "I shouldn't be required to cower and hide and risk my family and I dying when I could've defended myself. after all the police aren't reliable as we saw in uvalde or in various cases". Or "we saw how police were too late to react to that school in Uvalde, why shouldn't we arm the good people", or "the buffalo shooter's manifesto said he chose his targets partly to do with strict gun laws for citizens making it easier, so the democrats caused the deaths" (I am by the way, myself super against the whole arming teachers thing, but that's besides the point)

Arguing from the bottom up isn't the right to go about the issue imo, which is my main bone to pick with the gun violence debate, be it whatever side saying what. gotta root it in some meaning, otherwise it is just being reactionary, no matter how correct your side is in reality.

"there are too many mentally ill people walking around, the culture is permissive for gun violence"
As unfortunate as that is--on its own--it is no justification for many of the popular gun control laws commonly suggested.
As it is with most issues, in the partisanship taken up, common sense is forgotten, and you either end up with stupid laws which aim to be an inconvenience (all the random laws which end up being based on how a gun looks to appeal to people, or random things to do with accessories), or the promotion of an unsafe gun culture (which also leads to many of those accidents you hear about).Which is where I would agree.
https://www.nytimes.com/2023/04/23/opinion/guns-shootings-stand-your-ground.html
...however, I guess that gridlock of aggregated stupidity is what secures what you currently have. Beautiful, isn't it?

The dilemma of civilization--do you make laws based on your society or on what's principally right? Or is it principally right to make laws based on your society? Lol!
Either way, the doers will do and the rulers will rule--kyklos! If we were to have gun control, so be it. Ride on--!

I will add one thing.

People, especially gun sexuals (see-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHv6YBoIKbY), think for some reason that a few hundred years ago, you could just go gun-toting around anywhere and do whatever. I'm gonna generalize a bit (internationally!), but hear me out: Towns and localities had their own rules, there were at times barely any justice in the current sense when it came to how your rights could be treated. But at the same time, it would be easier to fight back or get away from that.
But the thing was, places were a lot more far away, and thus more regional. Now, you can get to the next place in magnitudes less of time, it is much less regional. since we're so connected, local policy is much more subservient due to well our structure and well the obvious inconveniences since you could be technically driving to a different polity for work everyday.
so you end up trying to make up laws for very different cases, but what else can you do?
maybe (you can ignore what comes after these parentheses) if we develop portable teleporters with a range of a few hundred miles and introduced some sort of new 'wild west' (in the colloquial sense, not historical), we'd be okay in how we perceive it.

In my view, a lot of the issues with this and a lot of other things have a lot to do with the structure behind it all, be it the law or the government.

I really like looking at the pomerium from Roman history and other ancient or older societies which had different models for things, but then you sort of see how a lot of that is predicated, well not only on old ideals that may not hold up with newer issues relating to privacy or other stuff, but on a big lack of code when dealing with strife. again, gonna be a bit vague, but oh, see those thieves and all, burn it all down in their area.

in a way, codifying individual rights can lead to the necessity for restricting the practical mobility of those rights, which wasn't as much of an issue beforehand in the practical sense, cause the ROL was looser in general, relating back to my commentabove^

You're getting way off track. The discussion was about whether President Biden's tweet was somehow dishonest or disingenuous. I don't see it. I would hope most people could agree that the state of gun violence in the US is regrettable. Certainly opinions differ on how to best address that.
