Re: “The Agenda: Senate votes down gun proposals; CofC athletic director out; Confederate flag snatchers

Furthermore Cid, using Mother Jones' statistics you reference and 2010 census data:

Asian killers were involved in 7.4% of mass shootings (6/81). They are 4.7% of the population.

Whites perpetuated 59.2% of mass shootings (48/81), with a population % of 63.7.

African Americans? 14.8% of mass shooters (12/81) compared to 12.2% of population.

So, allowing that mass shootings are proportionately well-represented by demography, lets move on to the how the weapons were purchased.

79% of the shooters purchased their weapons LEGALLY (64/81)--meaning they were LAW ABIDING GUN OWNERS right up until the moment they were pumping bystanders full of legally purchased lead.

Never mind that a significant portion of these weapons would've been banned by the admittedly short-sighted AWB from the 90s--its clear that guns are just too easily available.

Now, I know you like to say that we have enough gun laws they 'just need to be enforced'--but its clear that loopholes for legal gun purchases make us less safe.

Adding insult to injury, OTHER NATIONS have approached the issue of easily perpetuated mass gun death and made them a near-statistical anomaly.

In your own words "obviously, one is too many"--but 81(!) is just the price of freedom eh?

Maybe we should do something about it.

Re: “Don't let Nikki Haley's transformation fool you

What a disgusting, sloppy, unprofessional attack on our Governor. First, you attack her for not being poor. How does being poor better qualify someone for public office? In the land of opportunity, where anyone with brains and skills can rise up out of poverty against all odds, why should I be voting for poor, unaccomplished Democrats like Bernie Sanders who couldn't operate a hot dog stand for a profit? Because they are better qualified than someone who is successful and has wealth as a result of it? NO. They aren't. So there goes your first strawman attack. And for your information, Republicans did not hold a majority in South Carolina or anywhere else in the South until long after slavery had been abolished. You do realize that hundreds of thousands of white Christian Republicans died to FREE slaves from southern Democrat slavery and bondage, right? Are you desperate to bring back the glory days when white racist Democrats were in power in South Carolina? When will YOU change, Mr. Catastrophe? When will you begin ironing your shirts? I think you're just upset that Charleston didn't react the way Ferguson did or Baltimore did. You and your liberal friends wanted an excuse to loot, riot, destroy private property, and not show up to work. In Charleston, the black community and Christian community came together and reacted to the terror in a responsible, righteous, forgiving way and you hate that. You're the one who won't change. Just another racist white democrat wishing your political party didn't lose the Civil War, so now you pretend to be the expert on race relations and pretend to care about black people even though you still look at them and speak about them like some exhibit in a museum, or just use them like a political opportunist.

And why did you bring up transgender issues? I must be old school because where I come from you discern someone's gender based on their anatomy. Someone's liberal wimpy feelings don't determine their sex. Maybe they never took sex ed.? I discriminate male versus female according to reproductive organs. That must make me a heretic! I also discriminate green lights from red lights when I'm commuting. Discrimination!!!

And murdering unborn babies doesn't make you a good person. Only 1% of abortions are due to rape and no one challenges those. The other 99% are just acts of baby butchering disguised as some "choice" even though you liberal democrat progressive neo-marxists try to rob me of free choices to live my life how I want to every single day. You liberals don't believe in a choice which school I send my children to. You don't believe in me choosing whether I want healthcare insurance or not. Instead I get mandates from government goons. You don't believe in me choosing whether or not I want to arm myself to protect my family. You confiscate my earned income without choice. I can't even choose which color to paint my house without some liberal council or boardman approving it. I know you liberals don't believe in liberty and free choice, you believe in coercive power and fiat banking and insurance schemes.

And why didn't Democrats run someone more virtuous than that lawyerboy Vincent Sheehan? I mean you hate Governor Haley so much, but who did your immoral party of frauds run against her? You liberals are so worried about Brock Turner's soft 6 month sentence, but you ran a candidate for Governor who got a rapist, Isiah Junior Outten, off on 38 days served! Court records prove it. So why did you run a candidate for Governor who defended a man who raped 11 year old and 14 year old girls in the woods? Answer me Mat Catastrophe. Defend your fraudulent, racist, hypocritical political party's choice of candidate it ran against Governor Haley.

Governor Haley is a minority. I think you're just racist against her because she's a minority and you're waging a war on women. I mean, surely that would be the ridiculous accusations if I were to criticize a minority female Democrat. So let's turn the tables so you can see how silly and petty your own political party is.

Re: “Southern Season

Even with 40% off, their prices are high. I do buy very specialty items from them when cooking special meals, but everyday purchases generally come from HT or Publix. I'll definitely go to the downtown store, as it is much closer to Summerville and does not have the traffic.

Or we could just agree that white christians are just as dangerous as any other demographic and work to end epidemic gun violence that is unique to the US among developed nations?

Re: “Bad Bitches gets picked up for a food TV show

Great news. I'm sure this will spark some much needed interest in the Charleston area and encourage people to visit and, fingers crossed, even move here. Then they'll tell their family and friends about Charleston and they'll visit and decide to move here themselves. And then those folks will tell their family and friends and the cycle continues until this place fucking explodes.

Re: “JK Automotive

I was on my way home from the beach with a van load of kids, age 4 to 14, when suddenly I knew we were in trouble. My van started to shake and lost acceleration. It was extremely HOT outside, and the idea of being stranded on the highway with all of these kids was terrifying to me. The staff at JK were 100% helpful, honest, and skillful in their handling of the situation. After less than 2 hours, I was back on the road. Rather than take advantage of the situation, and gouge prices, knowing that I was desperate, they took care of everything at a more than fair price. These people are excellent at what they do, and ethical in their management and prices.

"worthless pieces of shit who can't resolve anything without a gun."

I think that should replace "E Pluribus Unum" as our nation's motto.

I certainly understand why Lindsey Graham doesn't have a problem with a self-loathing homosexual having a psychotic break and shooting up a gay club.

Re: “The Agenda: Senate votes down gun proposals; CofC athletic director out; Confederate flag snatchers

Using the Mother Jones list, which I know is pretty accurate for the basic facts, most US mass shootings since 1982 have been committed by Asians on a per capita basis (10 mass murderers in 6% of the population).

In second place is Africans (12 mass murderers in 13% of the population).

Euros "only" come in third with 48 in 63%. Stupid facts getting in the way of the narrative again!

Obviously, one is too many. But can we agree that facts do sort of matter a little bit? Maybe? Sometimes?

These types of events are also <1% of US murders, the vast majority of which are either domestic violence or drug/gang violence.

Re: “Stegelin: As our founding fathers intended

Fully automatic weapons like in the cartoon were heavily federally restricted from 1934 to 1986, and prohibited for new sales since 1986. In the past 50 years, nearly zero have been used in crimes. But, facts suck.

It's clearly been an individual right since day one. The 2008 Heller case just confirmed it to those that weren't aware, or don't want it to be so.
