@Baldimo,
You don’t live in the real world, do you? You don’t even have a clue. Here is a simple math problem when you retire the average pension is $15,000 but the insurance but a greed-based health insurance which has a very high deductible and only pays 80% costs $21,000 a year. Do the math and explain how you pay for a $21,000 health insurance policy with your $15,000 pension. Better yet explain how you keep from being homeless. Very few of the retirees in AFSCME could afford health insurance until Obamacare came along. Obamacare premiums were based on income. Administrative employees are slightly better off because their pension is based on their income which tends to be higher. The Police and Fire Departments worked out a deal in the 80s to create a fund that helped pay for retiree’s health insurance. Two percent of the salaries of all Police and Firemen go into the fund to help pay for retiree health insurance. The rapidly rising cost of health insurance will out pace those funds. I had negotiated a similar deal but before it could go into effect a Republican took office and canceled the contract. As President I sued the city, but it is not possible to beat the city in local courts the decision was supposed to be appealed to WV Supreme Court, but the state council lacked the funds.

When I started to work for the city a good low deductible health insurance policy ($100) that paid a 100% cost $60 a month or $720 a year a far inferior policy is now costs over $21,000 meaning it has went up nearly 30 times. If it continues at that same rate health insurance will cost over $630,000 in another 40 years. If you passed any math classes that should scare the hell out of you. The only plan the Republicans have to offer is a $630,000 or more health insurance policy.

Yeah? Do you have any #'s on that, or more BS facts from the 1980's?

Quote:

Don't most retired people use govt funded health insurance? Medicare, Blue Cross/Blue Shield... Your argument is already falling a part.

Why are you presenting a fabricated situation with no real basis in reality?

Quote:

Oh you mean the federal unions? Screw them, the union should be providing some sort of benefit, after all how many of millions do these unions collect in membership dues and payoffs from the Socialist Workers Party, after all, they fund most of the "protests" against business and hard working Americans. Also if they are retired, they should be using Medicare.

Quote:
Obamacare premiums were based on income.

Those premiums were not based on reality or even any real sense of an insurance market. The ACA is a failure, the young kids they needed to sign up ad foot the bill for the Exchanges were not signing up. It was stealing from the young to pay for the poor and old. It was a scam that is now failing and has been failing since it was enacted.

Quote:
Administrative employees are slightly better off because their pension is based on their income which tends to be higher.

They are more than likely over paid hacks who couldn't make it in the private sector, so they sought protection in the public sector.

Quote:

Sounds like a good plan to have those who will use it, pay for it. To bad the cops and fire fighters aren't paid more then BS Administrative employees. First Responders actually deserve to be paid better then bureaucratic pimps whose only concern is what they can scam from the public.

Quote:

That can mostly be blamed on govt regulation and has gotten worse since the ACA was enacted.

If they already had a deal, why would you need to redo anything? Were you trying to get the taxpayers to do the same thing for your admin folks? Sounds like a scam on your part and I'm happy you lost.

You aren't using math, you are using socialist propaganda that enforces more control by the govt and less control by the Citizens.

@Baldimo,
As a union president I lived and breathed health insurance for years. Health insurance has increased nearly 30 times in the last 40 years and if you count the high deductibles and only paying 80% the actual increase of an actual health insurance policy that paid the claim it would be more like 40 times. The city of Huntington was self-insured meaning the $21,000 a year cost was the actual cost of medical care plus a 10% cost for Blue Cross to process the claims. There is a rule in retail that you can’t sell something cheaper then it cost you if you want to stay in business. The two groups that cost the most to insure are those under 6 months, think premature babies cost up to a million, and those over 60. So, what telling me is that insurance companies who are willing to sell health insurance to seniors far under what it costs for their healthcare. You have no concept of reality. In the real-world health insurance cost double and triple after you reach 55. Under the proposed Republican greed-based solution plan the cost for seniors would be up to 6 times higher. Imagine having to come up with over a $120,000 a year on a fixed income. The market cost has to reflect actual cost of services.

I never had a physical between running track in junior high and turning 63. The insurance company would make a huge profit on healthy people and as every good business wants to make a profit. After the first 6 months of life most people are reasonably healthy until they turn 55. Health insurance is provided by the employer and is designed to weed unhealthy people out of the system. If you become sick and can’t work, you lose your job and your health insurance. By the time you get old enough to start having major health problems you are being weeded out of the system by retirement. The greed-based health system is designed to insure healthy people and let those with health problems go begging for care. The idea of health insurance was to take care of the sick not make billions on the healthy.

Your only intention was to get as much "free" health care as possible and stick the taxpayers with the bill.

How much has govt regulation increased in the health field and the health insurance markets in that same time? The only reason costs go up and don't come down is usually some form of govt regulation.

Quote:

As a union guy, you wanted all of those costs paid for by the taxpayer. We already see how unions react when they are told they should actually pay a portion of their health insurance costs, like the majority of the US population.

Quote:
There is a rule in retail that you can’t sell something cheaper then it cost you if you want to stay in business.

What do those costs include? I know you will point to massive CEO pay, but that is only the tip of the iceberg. It costs money to run a business but you wouldn't know that, it sounds like you have spent your life sucking off of the taxpayer tit.

Quote:
The two groups that cost the most to insure are those under 6 months, think premature babies cost up to a million, and those over 60.

The cost in the first 6 months of a child are usually related to the numerous doctor vitsits and the massive amounts of shots they receive. The costs of caring for a premature baby are high but they are a minority in terms of health care costs for children.
Old people are a different matter, the body starts to fail with age, so of course medical costs will increase. The majority of retired people do not have private insurance unless they are paying some form of supplemental insurance to cover holes in Medicare.

Quote:
So, what telling me is that insurance companies who are willing to sell health insurance to seniors far under what it costs for their healthcare.

As I noted, a majority of retired people have Medicare with Blue Cross/Blue Shield...

Quote:
You have no concept of reality.

You can keep saying that, but you were a city employee who lived off the taxpayers and then screwed them every chance he got by using his union against the very people he wasn't to "serve". You are the one who hasn't lived in the real world.

Quote:
In the real-world health insurance cost double and triple after you reach 55.

The cost of medical care also goes up. Do you propose that those who actually use the insurance shouldn't have to pay for it's usage? Those who aren't using the insurance must foot the bill for others?

Quote:
Under the proposed Republican greed-based solution plan the cost for seniors would be up to 6 times higher. Imagine having to come up with over a $120,000 a year on a fixed income. The market cost has to reflect actual cost of services.

Unless you can actually provide some proof of this, I'm going to say this is nothing but a bias against the free market. You have already proven your lack of understanding of how an ecomony works, I can't blame you. When you work for a place that doesn't have to work by a budget and can just take it from the taxpayers, you loose grasp of what the rest of us really do.

Quote:
I never had a physical between running track in junior high and turning 63.

I've had a physically every year since I was in the military and I continued them afterwards with my private Dr. I can tell you the cost of my physical has increased since the ACA. What used to cost about $30 for a blood draw, has increased to over $100 and it was the same year the ACA went active and the stupid and none fact based "insurance pools" went into effect.

Quote:
The insurance company would make a huge profit on healthy people and as every good business wants to make a profit.

They used to charge health people less, it was the govt who thought it was a good idea to overcharge the young to pay for the poor. It backfired as the young people didn't get insurance in the massive numbers that the Obama admin predicted. The fact the media let them spin this, wasn't surprising.

Quote:
Health insurance is provided by the employer and is designed to weed unhealthy people out of the system.

More anti-business propaganda? Insurance was offered by employers to attract the best people to the business. It had nothing to do with "weeding" people out. This is why I accuse you of being a communist, you keep bringing up total anti-business propaganda, with no basis in what really happens in the business world. Govt in general is far more corrupt than the average board meeting. At least a business actually offers a serivce or product people want. Govt wastes money giving people what they think they want because they think the average person doesn't know what's good for them.

Quote:
If you become sick and can’t work, you lose your job and your health insurance.

I guess you have never heard of FMLA, short term and long term disability protections?

Quote:
By the time you get old enough to start having major health problems you are being weeded out of the system by retirement.

You mean people get old and decide they no longer want to work, so they retire? Were you forced out of your job?

Quote:
The greed-based health system is designed to insure healthy people and let those with health problems go begging for care. The idea of health insurance was to take care of the sick not make billions on the healthy.

You can't even have an honest debate on this subject without once again going into anti-capitalist propaganda. You have a problem with any system that is concerned with profit, in fact the only people you think should be making money, isn't a person at all, it's the govt. You have already said numerous times you think the govt should be the ultimate power, nothing else above the mighty govt.

@Baldimo,
All you needed to do to know exactly what a mass murder does is listen to the tapes of the Las Vegas shooting. The shots are being fired into a crowd as rapidly as the bump stocks would allow. He was not aiming each shot. So much for your superior knowledge about guns. Reality is a real bummer when you try to make it up as you go along.

___________________________________________________
Sorry every news organization in the country refers to the AR-15 as an assault weapon. You can continue to “imagine” that a weapon that can fire 400 to 600 rounds a minute is not an assault weapon.

Your source is totally ignorant because it says the AR-15 was based on the M-16 when in fact AR-15 was invented first and it was so superior to any of the military weapons at the time the military used the design for the M-16.

“The M-16 was originally designated a rifle, caliber 5.56 mm, M-16, is a United States military adaptation of ArmaLite AR-15.”


Your reference could not even get the most basic information correct. The AR-15 was so deadly the US military just had to have it. It was not knowledge it just run of the mill ignorance.
_____________________________________________________________________________________
This takes us back to the Las Vegas shooting where the shooter had tracer bullets that he didn’t end using but they would let him see the directions the bullets were going. He was only aiming in the direction of the crowd. With an assault weapon you can watch as the targets fall to determine where the fire is going.

I seen the tapes, I know exactly what he was doing, it's called "spary and pray". It is not an effective means of fire, the amount of ammo you have to expend to actually hit anything is prohibitive. The military only uses such fire to keep the enemies heads down.

Quote:

Yes, "spray and pray". I've already said we should ban the bump stock, although our reasons are different.

Quote:
He was not aiming each shot.

Correct, he was using the "spray and pray" method of firing, it is the method used by shooters because they don't know what they are doing, and that's a good thing. Had he been aiming each shot, or at least firing in a "burst" pattern, he would have killed more than the 58 people he did. We should be very thankful he wasn't taking aimed shots.

Quote:

My superior knowledge on guns has been proven. I've looked at the post you failed to quote and I fail to see where you have proven anything. There were thousands of people at this concert, that fact that only 58 died and only 422 or so were hit with gun fire proves my point.

Quote:
Zardoz:
When you are shooting into a crowd it is like shooting at the broad side of the barn just fire and you will hit something. Assault weapons were designed to fire enough lead that you can see what you are hitting.

Based on your theory, we should have seen a couple hundred dead and a couple thousand wounded from gun shots. They claim there were 22,000 people at that concert that night, the ineffective use of the bump stock actually saved a lot of lives.

Quote:

That is because they are propagandist hacks just like you. They don't put forth any facts about the AR-15, just the scary language and misues of terms.

Quote:

We are talking about guns and you have the nerve to call someone else "ignorant"? The AR-15 wasn't superior to the M1 Garand the military was using before. They were looking for a lighter weapon that allowed the troops to carry more ammo. In fact, the M1 was far superior in it's kill ratio due to the 7.62 round it fired vs the 5.56 round the M-16 fired. The M1 was easier to clean and didn't jam as easily as the M-16.

Quote:
The M-16 was originally designated a rifle, caliber 5.56 mm, M-16, is a United States military adaptation of ArmaLite AR-15.”

This is completly true. The AR-15 shoots a smaller round than what was fired from the old M1. 5.56 vs 7.62 The AR in AR-15 does not stand for Assault Rifle, it stands for Armalite 15.

Quote:
Your reference could not even get the most basic information correct. The AR-15 was so deadly the US military just had to have it. It was not knowledge it just run of the mill ignorance.

The AR-15 is not that deadly, it was lighter in weight and the bullets were smaller, which allowed for more ammo to be carried by the troops. I don't know where you are getting your facts from, but they are not based in reality.

Quote:
This takes us back to the Las Vegas shooting where the shooter had tracer bullets that he didn’t end using but they would let him see the directions the bullets were going. He was only aiming in the direction of the crowd. With an assault weapon you can watch as the targets fall to determine where the fire is going.

This comment makes no sense and at the distances he was shooting, it made no difference, he couldn't tell where the bullets were going, he was "spraying and praying" he hit something. Adding a bump stock to an AR-15 does not make it an assault weapon, it still doesn't have select fire capabilities, plus the Obama admin would not have made it legal if that were the case.

Your continued ignorance about how guns fire and work continues to show. Nothing you have said about the function of guns is correct let along how to properly fire them.

You agree that Zinovyevna (pen name Ayn Rand) came of age during the Russian Revolution and she was educated in a communist university. She was educated in a communist university how could she not be influenced by her communist education? Elements of Zinovyevna’s political philosophy predate communism and harken back to czarist Russia. The tiny minority harvesting the labor of the vast majority.

___________________________________________________
There is article in todays paper where the head of Federal Reserve was asked to explain why wages are not going up in America. He said he cannot explain it. With full employment and huge tax cuts for the super wealthy wages should be increasing rapidly. The law of supply and demand should take over. He called it a puzzle. But it is no puzzle at all it is Zinovyevna’s political philosophy taking root in America.

____________________________________________________
You can read the words, but you fail to understand the political philosophy it was pushing. The premise of the book is the wealthy keep disappearing going off to a secret valley. They are going on strike because they are so mistreated. Civilization in America falls apart because this tiny group is responsible for everything and the vast majority are like cattle that don’t have sense enough to come in out of the rain. I not only read the book I book marked and underlined it. How that book could appeal to anyone, but an idiot is beyond me, but the right thinks she is a god.

____________________________________________________
You are like somebody on the Titanic worshiping icebergs. You would have to be completely blind not to realize how the middle-class lifestyle has deteriorated since Ayn Rand’s cult members got a hold of political power.

____________________________________________________

Sorry friend the communist had already invaded the United States and they became the founders of the modern conservative movement in America. Like that drunk, Joseph McCarthy you see communists under every bush but make heroes out of the real card-carrying communists. That is how the real communists got to be heroes to the Republican party. Whitaker Chambers testified against Alger Hiss one of his sources and became a national Republican hero to this day. All rights have to have limits when one tiny group has all the economic power they will use to destroy the majority’s economic position. You have to have a balance of power in government and the market place.

___________________________________________________
The communist believed that there were certain stages a country had to go through to become a communist country. They knew what make communism acceptable to the Russian people was that a tiny group of rich had most of the wealth of Russia and the large masses were peasants. First teach the masses to hate the government and the conservatives hate the government of America. Then all you need do is sit back and watch the greedy destroy America with their greed. Greed is a sickness not a trait to be admired.


I have worked with a contract and without a contract. A contract is simply a bill of rights that spells out the rights of workers and I know how you hate rights of any kind. The unions made America great and without them America goes into a tailspin that it will not recover from.

The Ruger Mini 14 is known as “the poor man’s assault rifle and has been used in a number mass murders including the attack on a Connecticut beer distributor that killed 8 and wounded two in 2016; the 1999 shooting at Wedgewood church in Texas leaving 7 dead and seven wounded; Oregon’s Thurston high school in 1998 leaving four dead and twenty-two wounded; the 1993 Long Island railroad shooting leaving 6 dead and 22 wounded; the 1991 Luby’s massacre leaving 23 victims dead and 22 wounded; a 1987 shootout at a Florida shopping center, leaving 6 dead, including two police officers. Plus, Anders Behring Breivik killing of 77 people in Norway in 2011.

This isn’t a rifle this is a full-on assault weapon used in mass murder after mass murder. The design was taken from a military assault weapon the mini 14 GB it comes with a pistol grip and folding stock. You are right this must be banned also. You think you can hide this crap in plain site. The mass murders speak for themselves.

If the automatic has the capability of firing 600 rounds a minute the semi-automatic has the same limit it is just a matter of pulling the trigger that many times.

@Baldimo,
It is not the barrel that melts it is the gas tube used to chamber the rounds.
____________________________________________________
Ruger mini !4 is just a cheaper assault weapon. It has the same design purpose mass murder.

____________________________________________________
The problem is Ruger makes several different versions some are regular rifles but the Mini-14 is a full-on mass murder weapon.

____________________________________________________
When the gun kills 77 people that is hardly a cosmetic reason. In just one incident it killed 77 people. Jobs require tools and mass murder is made easy with assault weapons.

____________________________________________________
The AR-15 is not a rifle in the classic sense of the word. Assault weapons are designed for one purpose mass murder whether on the battlefield or the high school.
_____________________________________________________________________________________
All most all cars go over a 100 mph. My first car a `1953 Plymouth had no trouble going over a hundred. A few years ago, there were states out west without a speed limit. Now Texas has 85 mph limits on some roads. Roads will improve, and speed limits will go up. Very few people drive the posted limit and very few tickets are written for less than 10 mph over the posted limit. You need not ban the car you could just adjust the governor.

____________________________________________________
Mass murder is the design objective of assault weapons. They should have a rating of 50 kills in a minute or a 100 kills per minute.

____________________________________________________
If semi-automatic rifles had the same rate of fire ArmaLite would not have been able to get a patent for the AR-15 if it had not been a significant improvement. If they are the same, why object to banning assault weapons?

____________________________________________________
Each police force is different and is run by a chief that decides how mass murders will be handled. The Columbine police chief may have decided to change how mass murders will be handled in Columbine in the future, but he is not over the other police departments in America. Some other Police Department may decide to adopt the Combine method, but others will not. I know exactly how real shootings are handled in Huntington.

____________________________________________________
Nobody is going to respond in the first 2 minutes the imaginary heroes will find there is a big difference between what they imagine they will do and when it comes to stepping out into a mass murder’s line of fire.

I have never heard this moniker used with the Ranch Rifle. You must have gotten it from some anti-gun site.

Did you bother to look at the weapons used in these shootings? No you didn't, you did some generic search for Ruger rifle and mass shootings. A majority of these shootings you chose to use as "evidence" against the Ranch Rifle were actually committed with Ruger handguns, I've got links, see how that works, which actually mention the type of gun used.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hartford_Distributors_shooting
Two Ruger SR9 semi-automatic pistols

Ruger P85 (9mm)
AMT Backup (.380 ACP)
Pipe bomb

9x19mm Glock 19 pistol
.22LR Ruger 10/22 rifle
.22LR Ruger MK II pistol
Two hunting knives


Ruger P89 9mm pistol

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luby%27s_shooting
Glock 17
Ruger P89

Ruger Mini-14
20-gauge shotgun
.38-caliber revolver
Our first actual Ruger Ranch Rifle


ANFO van bomb
Ruger Mini-14 carbine
Glock 34 pistol
This shooting didn't even happen in the US, it doesn't count for US mass shootings.

So out of 6 mass shootings you found, only 1 of them happened in the US with a Ruger Ranch Rifle. You haven't proven anything when you have to use lies and false facts to push your propaganda.

Quote:

Sorry liar, you found 1 US mass shooting where the Ruger Ranch Rifle was used.

Quote:

The design for the semi-auto action was taken from the M1-Garand. Just like any other semi-auto rifle, you can put them in a stock that has those features, but they do nothing to make the gun more deadly. My Ruger Ranch Rifle does't have any of those features, it's a wooden stock with no pistol grip.

Quote:
You are right this must be banned also. You think you can hide this crap in plain site. The mass murders speak for themselves.

I'm not hiding anything, you have lied about the guns used in a majority of those stories and had to even look for stories outside of the US to try and prove your point.

Quote:
If the automatic has the capability of firing 600 rounds a minute the semi-automatic has the same limit it is just a matter of pulling the trigger that many times.

Now your stupidity is showing through. You can't squeeze the trigger on a semi-auto gun that fast. It's physically impossible for the human body to do such a thing. Do you actually think they would have any sort of control over the weapon if they are firing it like that? Nope, hence the reason so few people died in the Las Vegas shooting.

This is all true, but I fail to see how it relates to her writings were very clearly anti-communist. She fought against "collective thinking", that is the central tenant of communism, no more individualism, it's all about the collective.

Quote:

The very same way people who are educated here in the US on the Capititalist system revolt against it. Individual thoughts can lead to breaking the mold of govt education.

Quote:

Yes, which is also the complete opposite of Communism. You forget, the Communists removed the Czars from power. Communism then went on to kill millions and millions of their own people and send them off to "re-education" camps, so they could learn to be good little collectivists.

Quote:

There are actually a few idea's listed in the article as to what the issue might be. To think it is simply all about greed, is short sighted and shows a lack of how real business's work.

The law of supply and demand should take over. He called it a puzzle. But it is no puzzle at all it is Zinovyevna’s political philosophy taking root in America.

These things don't happen overnight, and in fact will vary from place to place. The worse companies need people the more pay will go up. You seem to think it will happen across the board, it won't. Some sectors will see gains, others will see losses.

Quote:
You can read the words, but you fail to understand the political philosophy it was pushing.

I understood it perfectly, Communism is bad, capitalism is good.

Quote:
The premise of the book is the wealthy keep disappearing going off to a secret valley. They are going on strike because they are so mistreated.

No, the govt is taking their business, and creating regulations which did nothing but increase the power of govt, just like what happened in Venezuela and just about every where else Communism has spread.

Quote:
Civilization in America falls apart because this tiny group is responsible for everything and the vast majority are like cattle that don’t have sense enough to come in out of the rain.

No, govt started trying to control to much of the private market, "for the good of the general population".
The govt in Atlas Shrugged was moving towards total and utter govt control of all business's. I can see why you would be for such things, you favor govt control and a submissive population. Would you actually support any of those laws that were in Atlas Shrugged?


Quote:
I not only read the book I book marked and underlined it. How that book could appeal to anyone, but an idiot is beyond me, but the right thinks she is a god.

Yeah, who would want to live in a world where you can start a business and be in control of your own creation.

You are like somebody on the Titanic worshiping icebergs. You would have to be completely blind not to realize how the middle-class lifestyle has deteriorated since Ayn Rand’s cult members got a hold of political power.

I'm in the middle class, and my lifestyle is just fine. Just over 20 years ago, I was working as a fast food grunt, then Walmart and then into the construction field, and then got a cheap education in computers and I have been in the IT field ever since. Just so you know, I made $5.25 an hr in the fast food industry, and I now make over $80k a year. No formal education, just hard work and learning everything I can while in a job. The middle class is actually doing just fine.

Quote:
Sorry friend the communist had already invaded the United States and they became the founders of the modern conservative movement in America.

This is so stupid. These communists helped start a political philosphy that goes against the very foundations of communism? Do you really think "collectivism" is what the US was founded on, or was it individual liberty and freedom?

Quote:
A contract is simply a bill of rights that spells out the rights of workers and I know how you hate rights of any kind.

Why do you lie? I'm not sure which "rights" you think I'm against.

@Zardoz,

It is not the barrel that melts it is the gas tube used to chamber the rounds.

You should actually watch some video's of people shooting their guns till they overheat...

Quote:
Ruger mini !4 is just a cheaper assault weapon. It has the same design purpose mass murder.

It's not an assault weapon, it is a semi-auto rifle.

Quote:
The problem is Ruger makes several different versions some are regular rifles but the Mini-14 is a full-on mass murder weapon.

Do you honestly think a pistol grip makes a gun more deadly and can make it fire more bullets?

Quote:
When the gun kills 77 people that is hardly a cosmetic reason. In just one incident it killed 77 people. Jobs require tools and mass murder is made easy with assault weapons.

He killed 77 people on an island where there were no guns to react to the shooter. As it has been pointed out, mass shootings take place in places where the shooter knows that no one has a gun to stop them, it's why they choose those places.

Quote:
The AR-15 is not a rifle in the classic sense of the word. Assault weapons are designed for one purpose mass murder whether on the battlefield or the high school.

You don't know what you are talking about. Your emotional meanings have no basis in the real world.

Quote:
All most all cars go over a 100 mph. My first car a `1953 Plymouth had no trouble going over a hundred. A few years ago, there were states out west without a speed limit. Now Texas has 85 mph limits on some roads. Roads will improve, and speed limits will go up. Very few people drive the posted limit and very few tickets are written for less than 10 mph over the posted limit. You need not ban the car you could just adjust the governor.

We need to ban excess speed. No speed limits should be over 55 mph, to prevent people from speeding no car can be produced that excedes this maximum speed limit. Only the police and govt agencies can have cars that go 100 mph.

Quote:
Mass murder is the design objective of assault weapons. They should have a rating of 50 kills in a minute or a 100 kills per minute.

No, that isn't the point.

Quote:
If semi-automatic rifles had the same rate of fire ArmaLite would not have been able to get a patent for the AR-15 if it had not been a significant improvement. If they are the same, why object to banning assault weapons?

What kind of BS are you talking about? The amount of bullets a gun can shoot has nothing to do with it's patent. You really are dumb about this subject aren't you.

Quote:
Each police force is different and is run by a chief that decides how mass murders will be handled. The Columbine police chief may have decided to change how mass murders will be handled in Columbine in the future, but he is not over the other police departments in America. Some other Police Department may decide to adopt the Combine method, but others will not. I know exactly how real shootings are handled in Huntington.

You don't know ****. There is indeed a standard practice that is generally followed by a majority of police dept's. The standard response to an active shooter in a vast majority of police depts is to confront the shooter and not to let them continue with their plan. Stop giving a pass to the chicken **** cop who stood outside while the Parkland shooter killed kids. There is a reason he was fired!

Quote:
Nobody is going to respond in the first 2 minutes the imaginary heroes will find there is a big difference between what they imagine they will do and when it comes to stepping out into a mass murder’s line of fire.

Cowards always question the bravery of others.
