Boy those scammers are getting creative. Now when they are sending their emails telling you how much in love they are with your profile and blah blah blah...they are giving you a phone number and requesting you text them. Isn't that just so cool? Now they are giving a phone number!

(disclaimer: the above is tongue in cheek, meant to be sarcastic)

You know...........I could have some fun with this. Make a list of the numbers, and then when the next scammer writes, asking for a phone number, BINGO!!! I've got some numbers to give them!

On to other things.....

I'm sure there are those who are happy football season is officially under way. My Lions lost to the Cardinals...damn!!! But, there's other games to be played, no sense in crying about that one loss. It just better be the only one dang it!!! And Hockey will be starting soon, and the Red Wings are going to snatch the Stanley Cup away from those pesky Black Hawks this year.

I'm sure everyone has heard about the shooting today at the Naval Base (?) in D.C. I guess one of the suspects is dead, and there was a rumor for a while there were two others. Don't know the latest. I could look it up...but why make it easy for anyone? Right? I mean, we want some participation, so someone else can look up the latest and update us. Right? Maybe? Oh ok....I'll do it. Be back in a few minutes..........

Ok, it was a Navy Yard, not base. But I was close. And police are still searching for more suspects:

WASHINGTON — At least 13 people, including one gunman, were killed, and the police were looking for other potential suspects, in a shooting Monday morning at a naval office building not far from Capitol Hill and the White House, police officials said.

Shooting

What is this world coming to anymore? Seems grabbing the gun and going on mass killing sprees is an epidemic anymore. And no, I'm not for more gun control laws. What I propose is make the current laws involving using firearms, or any other weapon for that matter, while committing a felony or misdemeanor more severe. Make the laws a deterrent instead of a slap on the hand for a first offender. 1st degree murder, shouldn't be allowed to plea bargain. Have the trial, and let the jury decide. Period.

Thoughts?

It is fun to give those numbers out to telemarketers and debt collection agencies

A common theme in these shootings is that the mass murderer expects to die in the killing spree. Expectation of a more severe penalty won't deter those guys, because they know they'll be dead. And most don't have a prior crime involving guns.

Now, this particular guy has had two incidents involving guns. He explained away the first one by saying he was cleaning his gun and it went off (into his neighbor's apartment - the neighbor says he had been confronting her about noise). The second time he shot out a guy's tires. Neither resulted in him being convicted of a crime that would put him on a list of people who can't buy guns under today's laws.

So yeah, we could have passed a law that would prevent someone with a history of recklessness with guns from owning them. But you can bet the NRA will oppose it, the House would refuse to pass it, and the Republicans in the Senate would filibuster it. Until the NRA loses its grip on the GOP, no sensible restrictions on gun ownership by people who shouldn't have them will ever happen.

When I say harsher punishment, I don't mean the death penalty. I know of what you're talking about..it's been referred to as "suicide by cop". No, I'm talking stiffer sentences, no parole, and hard labor, no volleyball or tennis courts...no weight rooms, make them work their ass off from the time they are up to when they go to sleep.

We can try to make it as difficult as possible for people to get guns, but the problem is, criminals don't obey laws...so that will not stop them from getting the guns they want.

I get that. But this guy and those like him won't be deterred by any kind of stiffer sentence. He intends to kill and then be killed, and has no concern about serving time in prison.

I think criminals should be prohibited from buying guns legally by putting them on a national register and requiring background checks in all instances. It'll make it harder for them to get guns, and it will allow us to prosecute those who sell them to criminals.

The Washington killer had two gun violations, but was able to go into a gun store and legally buy the guns he used to kill 12 people with. That's fucked up.

I don't get the notion that it's pointless to have a law because criminals break laws anyway. By that logic, nothing should be illegal.

The thing is, if a criminal cannot buy a gun through legal means, they will buy guns or steal them off the street. All the background checks in the world are not going to stop that. Which is why those who do sell them on the street to criminals should be facing harsher punishment than what they face now. And those caught buying....same thing, harsher punishment.

I don't get the notion that it's pointless to have a law because criminals break laws anyway. By that logic, nothing should be illegal.

I didn't say it's "pointless" to have a law, I'm saying that instead of making new laws, take what we already have, and have stricter enforcement of them.

Instead of the war on drugs we should be having a war on illegal firearms dealers and private sales of guns should be illegal period, If you want to sell your gun it should have to go through a system where a background check is done on the person you are selling it to, We have to get this crap under control, We are not living in the wild west , Those days are gone and I am getting sick and tired of that kind of mentality by some in this country, Don't they realize they are going to push it so far that one day someone is actually going to be forced to start rounding up the guns in this country and it will be their own fault because they did not want sensible gun laws, The NRA needs to have its teeth pulled in the political arena, Most of its members do not even agree with its wackadoo policies, The gun manufacturers have bought the NRA and the Republican party, Until we get these people out of government nothing is going to change except the numbers are going up on the people killed each year, The USA has jumped the shark on this, well actually on a lot of things but there is not enough room on a blog comment to go into that, The mass shootings might also be connected with the lack of mental health care in this country, If you leave people who are crazy running loose with no supervision or help for their disorders this kind if incidents will keep happening,

Nah, not only did I buy a handgun in January, I JOINED the NRA as well--due to all
the reactionary rhetoric from Feinstein, Obama, etc! When I found it nearly impossible
to obtain ammunition (outside of the target range), I ORDERED a big chunk, just so I
would have more than a fancy paperweight to sit on my desk.

If you look closely, the several instances of mass killings were conducted by deranged or
sick people. Regan/Brady? Yep. John Lennon? Uh huh. Aurora, CO ("Batman" cinema)
shootings? Affirmative. The latest Naval base shootings? You are correct, sir. That
leads me to assert that something must be done along the mental health lines.

Trusting the government to impose sensible statutes, IMO, is folly. Law after law has
been written, without functional credibility. I agree that some measure(s) need to be
taken, but kneejerk legislation is fruitless. Maybe a limit to gun ownership, for those
found to have a record of certain psycological disorders, combined with lawless behavior?

I will probably let my NRA membership lapse once the current administration is out
of office. For the time being, however, I will renew it annually. This administration
cannot be trusted, and needs FULL Conservative opposition!
