Arizona! This Is Not The Answer!

Guns are NOT the answer!

According to reports, in light of what happened this past weekend in Tucson, the Glock semi-automatic pistol has skyrocketed in sales.

This particular weapon is the same one used by Jared Loughner when he made a massacre out of a supermarket Saturday and killed six innocent people. One shop owner in the Phoenix area revealed that his shop is "double our volume" because of the event.

Why? Mainly because people are scared that this latest attack will force the government's hand in coming down on stricter gun laws. According to one shop owner, people "worried" a ban will go into effect, so they want to beat them to the punch.

Unexceptable. Really and truly it is. The guns laws should be harsh for just this reason. There is just too much risk to innocent lives with this many guns circulating around.

Shame.

    UNACCEPTABLE, not "unexceptable." Merriam-Webster is your friend.

    I bet you also say "supposably."



  2. 2

    STOP LINKING!!! EVERYONE HATES IT! DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO COME HERE OR NOT! SHIT! POST THE WHOLE STORY!



  3. 3

    Why? It's obviously not very good if it doesn't even kill someone when you shoot them in the head. Guns are stupid, and so it anybody that buys them without good reason.



  4. 4

    YEP, THAT'S THE AMERICAN WAY. SMH. DISSUADE GUN USAGE BY BUYING MORE GUNS… LOGIC ANYONE?? MICHAEL MOORE WAS RIGHT.



  5. 5

    Until there's a litmus test for "crazy and about to slaughter hundreds for no reason," the rest of us should be able to get guns too. How else can we protect ourselves?



  6. 6

    i've never made a comment - - -but this picture is the perfect anti gun poster.

    imagine it on a billboard along sunset blvd CA, avenue of the america's NY, hay st NC, rue st paul Quebec, george st Sydney, regent st London.

    like a street sign. simple and brilliant.

    HAHAHAHA - hold up. Okay I can understand why people are afraid that it'll be harder to get guns (as it should be), fear is the best selling mechanism there is, but they bought this particular gun why? Because if it can take down 6 ppl, it must be good? Seriously, see it in a movie, a gun show - okay. But walking into the store and saying what? I want the gun that the kid used in last week's rampage?



  8. 8

    I don't see a problem. i will cap some motherfuckers before they get me.



  9. 9

    Re: crazydoll – Rachel Maddow had a story last night about how there are 90 guns for every 100 people in America. Do you really think we need more guns? There is something wrong with this country and our gun obsession. Are we really surprised that this type of stuff happens when we have factions of this country that think there should be NO gun regulation whatsoever? How about we start protecting ourselves with sane gun control laws, education, and actually take care of the mentally ill.



  10. 10

    also STOP LINKING. i'm going to stick a gun in your asshole and pull the trigger for every time i come on here and there are links.



  11. 11

    uhmm if thtas not the answer then what IS the answer???



  12. 12

    Although I agree that these types of semi automatic weapons should not be sold to the public… guns don't kill… people do. The gov't should have better laws as to who can own a gun and the background checks should be stricter. I don't understand how a person with a history of mental instability can be sold a gun… but Jared was able to purchase one anyway. That's what the feds should be investigating.



  13. 13

    maybe some gun owners are worried there will be another ban on magazines that hold 15 bullets, l so they are buying the guns that hold them. Which has happened before.



  14. 14

    If I want a gun, I will purchase it. I believe our 2nd amendment is there for a purpose. Just because ONE person went bat-shit crazy, doesn't mean everyone with a GUN is bat-shit crazy. It's people like you, Mario that make everything so much harder.



  15. 15

    There should be more regulations and strictness about owning guns etc. You should never buy a gun just to protect yourself. Aiming is a lot harder than you think. Don't want to hurt the wrong person.



  16. 16

    I own guns. I enjoy going to the range and shooting clay pigeons and targets with my family. Sane people should be allowed to keep guns.



  17. 17

    It's called the 2nd Amendment, dear. Paris Hilton is dropping her pants somewhere. Why don't you go investigate that instead of pretending to be a hotlinking faux journalist?



  18. 18

    people should be allowed to buy guns…the constitution says so! why? in case our government becomes tyrannical and the citizens have to band together and overthrow them using force! :)

  19. emmz says – reply to this


    19

    unexceptable? hahahhahaha.

  20. emmz says – reply to this


    20

    also, stop making us "read the rest of the story" ANNOYING. is it so your website gets more clicks? LAME



  21. 21

    The day we receive a ban on guns is the day we all lose our freedom.

    What, should the military come knock on our doors and take the guns responsible people own?

    Guns don't kill people…people do.



  22. 22

    Guns don't kill people. People with guns kill other people way too easily with little risk to self. They also allow maximum deadly force on a whim. Couple that with the fact you don't have to get up close and personal and gory about it. try that with a knife or a bat. Just point shoot and turn away. Oh on another note, this "click for rest of entry" shit is unexceptable. Fucking block headed up my hit count can't spell properly moron. Jeebus Crispies



  23. 23

    Know who will still have guns even if their banned? Criminals…you know…the people committing the crimes. Got to protect yourself somehow.

  24. jay26 says – reply to this


    24

    Its exactly the answer. Why let the bad guys be the only ones with guns? If someone else would have had a gun that day they could have ended it before the guy emptied his first magazine.



  25. 25

    Far more people are killed with cars every year than with guns. Swimming pools kill people every year. So does crossing the street. Bees sting people every year and some people die from it. Each year people die from reactions and/or improper use of medicines. Many people die in surgery too.
    We should ban cars, swimming pools, pedestrians, bees, medicine, surgery, etc.
    And I'm just getting started here. Make this a safe nation!



  26. 26

    Mario, why don't you ACTUALLY READ AND COMPREHEND WHAT YOU SUPPOSEDLY WRITE AND POSTl A supposed 7900+ guns were sold, in a country that has over 320 MILLION people. That is LESS than 1 in 40, 000 persons. But those less than 8000 people ARE SCARED. Gun Control, a real nice thought, but it is not going to happen. Some other countries have had success before, but this country, examine how many horrific crimes are done with ILLEGAL GUNS. and If someone was going to plan something AWFUL and could not LEGALLY GET A GUN, do YOU REALLY THINK MARIO, THEY ARE GOING TO SAY, AH SHUCKS, I CAN'T CARRY OUT MY MASS execution now :( NO, there are SO MANY ILLEGAL GUNS ON THE MARKET, AND SOMEONE JUST NEEDS TO KNOW 'SOMEONE' AND THEY CAN GET 'SUPPLIED' WITHIN 1 HOUR AND get right back on 'schedule'



  27. 27

    Re: emmz – Of course he is making everybody keep clicking for MORE AD REVENUE.



  28. 28

    taking LEGAL GUNS OFF THE MARKET, MIGHT BE THE STUPIDEST THING TO DO. Yes, you might be supplying a killer with a gun, but for every killer who gets a legal gun, you might be supplyig 10-20 heros, or people who need it to protect themselves and their families. AND THOSE IN AZ, ESPECIALLY IN TUCSON and I know you hate to admit it, the area in TUCSON IS VERY DANGEROUS. So, stop the inane 'THIS IS NOT THE ANSWER' and THINK FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE!!!!!!



  29. 29

    Re: crazydoll – Do you really think the people in the court room would have been able to get to their weapons and defend themselves in time or do you think that maybe even more people would have died. What you probably meant to say was that until there is a litnus test to see who is insanly violent, no one should have access to these deadly weapons.



  30. 30

    oh please, you don't have even a fraction of the cognitive abilities required to debate guns in society. BTW, I didn't pick up a model 19 in 9×19mm, I opted for a twin companion for my model 23 in .40S&W :) So, we're not ALL buying model 19's!



  31. 31

    At least in America you can protect yourself and your family. In Canada you can't own anything that would protect you. No Mace, Pepper spay, no taser, no guns, no clubs ( you get the picture ). Like most the people here say " Guns don't kill, people do". Outlawing guns won't stop nuts jobs from shooting you. If they want to get a gun, they will have no problem getting one.



  32. 32

    Re: freyja

    You know what people still know how to spell words properly? People who finished high school.



  33. 33

    People have been killing people since the beginning of man kind. If guns don't do it, People will use knives/blunt objects. I'd rather get shot than stabbed/beat to death.

    If they ban guns, Civil war time. Which is exactly what we need.

    Gun owners need to band together to overthrow this crap government. Thats the only way to fix the mess we are in.



  34. 34

    People who want to do malicious things with guns, are the people that will NOT buy them legally, will NOT abide by gun laws… It is only fair that those registering their guns and doing things the legal way have some way to defend themselves. (and believe me, it happens a lot) I will be the first to tell you, you probably don't have many items in your home that would aid against someone busting through your door with a gun. just sayin.



  35. 35

    That is so effing retarded! More Sarah Palin gun supporting white trash hillbillies most likely buying those.



  36. 36

    all you people saying "guns don't kill, people do" are RIDICULOUS! Could that knob have walked into that supermarket and killed a bunch of people in under a couple of minutes if he was wielding a knife? no. so guns DO kill people. Australia has strict gun laws, since the Port Arthur Massacre, with that in mind check out their record compared to the USA. Shut up with that "its my right, it's in the constitution" bullshit and get with the times.



  37. 37

    Re: BonerMcBone – Yes but not everyone needs to own more than one gun or have them sitting around the house like toys, like a lot of "southerners" do.



  38. 38

    Perez!! I hate this "read the rest of the entry" crap!! Why don't you just post the whole article?? This new format of yours sucks!!



  39. 39

    Re: jay26 – Only bad guys use the guns for evil. Weak argument.



  40. 40

    wanna know why gun related crime is 44 times lower in the uk than the us? because we dont allow any old hick to buy a fucking weapon. the whole point of living in a democratic society is that you shouldnt have the protect yourself in the first place!!



  41. 41

    It is our CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to bear arms. And no matter if they ban guns completely in this state, criminals will have them anyways because they don't care, and everyone else will be victims with no self defense. Stop being so close minded, Perez. Guns don't kill people. Someone has to make the conscious decision to pull the trigger.



  42. 42

    When people say 'sane people should be allowed to carry guns' ,sane people don't always stay sane ,mental illness can hit anyone at any point .I'm from England and wouldn't feel safe in a country with such lenient gun rules.



  43. 43

    Re: crazydoll – Protect yourselves from what? Other people with guns? Man, I wonder how people survived without a gun in every household. =/ Use a fucking knife you lazy bastards.
    -
    -
    -
    And fucking honestly Perez, stop linking people. Post the whole article its fucking annoying.



  44. 44

    At least one of the people who were responsible for stopping the shooter said he, himself, was carrying and he felt he was better equipped to get involved in the situation. I think MORE [people should carry guns and there are studies that say in those areas where everyone has a gun the crime goes down.



  45. 45

    Re: Trixx-Tallulah
    I really don't want to live my life based on "it might happen". I do not want to give up one of my rights on this earth and to be able to protect myself (or possibly you if you are my neighbor) is a GOOD thing to do.

  46. we87 says – reply to this


    46

    Yes gun laws should be strict about who can obtain them.But most the ppl who use them for the wrong reason get them illegally anyhow.Dropping a ban on guns would only make things worse meaning ppl who do buy them for the right reason could not protect theirself or their loved ones.You may think calling the cops to help you does just fine but think about this the avrg 9mm travels at a rate of 821-822 mph idk bout you but i cant dial that fast.Either way my op doesnt matter so think about that.



  47. 47

    No offense to anyone, but thats America for you. I mean, everyone in that country owns a gun….



  48. 48

    We are in America, with some little known document called the Constitution. And for all you bleeding heart idiot's out there, newsflash, study after study have shown that people who use guns illegaly would still do so. LIke drugs, and alcahol before it, prohibition just creates a criminal enterprise. Criminals will buy guns illegally, we have proven that time and time again with many issues. Get a fucking clue you liberal fucks. And to the dumb kunt in this post, a good reason for owning a gun is to protect yourself against crazy fucks that shoot up political rally's and murder little girls. At least that's a good reason for me, you would probably tell him how great of a person he is and god loves him.



  49. 49

    Oy! Bad people can always get guns. making the laws more strict only affects our ability to protect ourselves from these crazy people. If more people were armed and trained at this event, then it could possibly have been prevented. Guns don't kill people guys, people kill people.



  50. 50

    First - learn to spell.
    Second - It is our RIGHT to bear arms. Read the constitution…if you even know what that is. You can't possibly be so dumb that you actually believe criminals are buying guns 'legally'? Even if the Govt. implemented stricter gun laws, criminals would still have them. Now what good is that doing anybody?
    Have you ever purchased alcohol illegally, under the age of 21? Have you ever drank said alcohol under age? Should we ban alcohol? Because how many lives does drunk driving take? How about baseball bats…I'd much rather be shot than have my brains smashed in w/ a bat. Should ban those too. And knives/swords?

    Yes, guns do kill people, but it takes someone pulling the trigger. Banning firearms helps absolutely no one.

    Stick to celebs, Perez.



  51. 51

    ANd our govenor(Jan Brewer) is trying to pass a law making it mandatory for every government official to carry a gun. So everyone in governemnt will be loaded so the next time a crazy guy starts shooting it will turn into a shoot out as everyone draws their guns and starts firing. She is also trying to pass a law that teachers as well as students can carry guns into class. Oh yeah that's a good idea.



  52. 52

    the thing is, Bad people will still get guns! even if they come down with strict gun laws, criminals will still get them.
    Stupid people shouldnt be allowed to buy guns.



  53. 53

    If there was a ban on guns the only people that would give up their guns would be the law abiding citizens. Do you think the criminals would?! The right to bear arms was originally put in place for citizens to protect themselves from it's goverment. Yes dumb people do dumb things with guns, it's not the gun it's self firing off and killing people.



  54. 54

    I really don't understand America's obsession with the gun. (I'm not from around there obviously)
    Why would you need to keep that much fire power? I really don't understand.



  55. 55

    Re: vampjenn – Amen!



  56. 56

    hehe, Americans are so funny! Whenever the rest of the world has a large shooting like this, we impose more gun control to keep the number of guns floating around in public down. And guess what, it works! The number of violent crimes committed with a gun have dropped DRASTICALLY. America's answer? MORE GUNS, ’cause you know, that seems to be working and all.



  57. 57

    ridiculous and utterly barbaric



  58. 58

    Good. Maybe they'll start shooting illegals.



  59. 59

    did anyone ever really expect anything better from arizona? that state is going down the shitter. we already see its effects with congress trying to pass that "state citizenship" bullshit. does anyone not remember what the fucking civil war was about?? i weep for this country i love so much, i truly do.

    We're supposed to let criminals, who have guns, just break into our houses and have us be defenseless? Wait till you are faced with death and see if you change your stupid go-along-with-whatever-the-liberal-thought-is unthinking mantra. And Gagalicious, if you think guns don't kill if someone if shot in the head, hope that that laughable theory never gets tested out on you.



  61. 61

    Re: electromouth – You're gun crime is lower because you have stricter laws, yes. But what about knife crime? Or just other violent crimes in general? You have chavs and neds attacking people on the street all the time wielding knives that they can buy in any store. You just have to be over 16. Knives and boots to the head are a lot more violent and malicious in my opinion.



  62. 62

    The thing is, if he's shot Sarah Palin's halitosis out of his gun, he'd have killed more people.



  63. 63

    Re: caledonia86 – If someone attacks you with a knife at least you stand a chance of survival, you don't if they have a gun. Know where i'd rather live..



  64. 64

    Seriously, Mario. You have no idea. Keep your opinion about our gun laws to yourself. I LOVE the fact that here in AZ a can protect my family and shoot any motherfucker who dares to trespass on my property. Also, I hate your face.



  65. 65

    Shut the fuck up. Yes, guns are the answer. It sure would have been if someone near the killer in Saturday's shooting had one.



  66. 66

    Re: sonick808 – I think I love you…



  67. 67

    God, you guys are a bunch of liberal hippies. Yes, lets stop sales on guns. So alllllll the wrong people end up with them, and my family… or your family could be dead because of this. Yes, there would be serious issues if let stopped gun sales. I have a ccw license because if I'm somewhere and people's lives are in danger, I will do what I have to, to save a life! But I'm looked bad on. I would never want to kill someone… but I'd much rather have to take one life that doesn't deserve one, to save many innocent people's lives.

    Fucking common sense, shove you're liberal hippy bullshit up your ass and stay out of it, there are NUT CASES in the world and there is nothing any one can do about it. If guns aren't around they will still find a way to kill people! Trying to control everything will never work.



  68. 68

    Also, Ive heard that some dudes carry bigger guns to compensate for a small peepee. I'm a lady, and hence, I don't have a wienerschnitzel, so my guns are HUUUUGE.



  69. 69

    Re: Laura – lmao your post made me laugh.



  70. 70

    I would rather go down pulling the trigger than trying to dial 911



  71. 71

    America is sick. Chris Rock once said that bullets should be sold for $10,000.
    I agree with him. Using guns for law enforcement would be an exception of course, but for all other people wanting to own guns…all the rednecks, mentally unstable and criminal people…Having to pay 10k for your bullet would probably stop you from going ahead with your sick plan to hurt or kill someone.
    Just sayin. Of course, gun lovers will say that guns do not kill people…but people kill people. Sure, if this sicko only had a knife, he would have never hurt that many people. I feel much safer here in Canada (for now).



  72. 72

    Re: bulwergirl – You're an idiot. please don't talk. Theres millions of responsible gun owners in the US and in the world. That shoot just for sport.

    How often does this shit happen? Given all of the major sports games, The New Years eve thing,etc,etc. Theres tons and tons of large gatherings in the US for various stuff..and someone shooting it..How often does that happen? Once in a blue moon. Don't blame guns, Blame the unstable idiot that was able to get his hands on one. Blame the lack of security for one.

    Ever notice how every single time someone has went on a killing spree people that knew the guy or teachers ALWAYS has ALWAYS said "I saw the signs of depression blah blah" Yeah..



  73. 73

    You idiots don't realize that if guns were banned then it would create even more criminals. Al Capone and alcohol prohibition anyone? Don't blame the "gun" blame the nut job that was pissed off at the world and blame incompetent cops/security for not seeing him in time

    Killing people is the world's 2nd oldest profession. And the first hasn't been fully outlawed yet.

    To the idiots saying "well if guns were banned and he used a knife not that many people would of died" ROFL yea, in a large group of people you could start shanking people left and right before someone even noticed what was going down..Especially if they researched human anatomy on google for a whole 2 seconds they would know where to stab.
    Like I said, People were killing people since the beginning of time. Before guns were ever even thought of.
    I guess most of you idiots aren't aware..You can make a BOMB out of household chemicals and produce devastating effects far worse than a random firing gun wielder. So what is the government going to do ban cleaning supplies? lol right.



  74. 74

    oh my god all these americans with their "if i want a gun i should be able to have one" bullshit. guns are DANGEROUS and illegal in most countries to be easily attained for a REASON. look at everyone here in canada, our crime rates are ridiculously lower than americas, yes we have a smaller population but even if it were up to scale.. having guns as an illegal thing means not every moron that wants one can have one. I seriously think if guns were outlawed the world would be a much safer place. nobody except for law enforcement should have that much power in their hands



  75. 75

    it's very possible that sales went up so people can DEFEND themselves if this was to ever happen again. which is probably will



  76. 76

    what is wrong with a law abiding citizen having a gun? It's the criminals we're worried about, but they're not getting the guns legally, they get them on the black market! Why not let the responsible adult (that had a background check) carry a gun to defend the good people against the bad?



  77. 77

    tell your employees to proof-read better! I've SEEN acceptable written correctly on your postings before!



  78. 78

    "Unexceptable"?? LEARN HOW TO SPELL. Also, taking away guns or gun rights is not the answer. People kill other people, with guns or whatever weapons because of underlying social issues, poverty, etc. If the government wants to stop people from killing people they need to fix those problems, NOT take guns away from Americans. The government is not supposed to just have free reign to take our rights away.



  79. 79

    Re: metalxxx – Canada is a completely different country with different customs, morals, etc. In the US violence in many forms is glorified on TV and is taught to kids. Just looking at the amount of money we spend on defense compared to Canada should tell you what our priorities are. Canada on the other hand has many social programs which also helps people to have better mental health and NOT KILL PEOPLE. That's why there is more murder in the US. Also "nobody except for law enforcement should have that much power in their hands." Seriously?? You probably think we should live in a fascist state and have surveillance cameras everywhere too, and nobody should be allowed to say anything that's "offensive" to certain groups. By the way, outlawing guns doesn't do anything except put the guns in criminals hands and leave the law abiding citizens with no means to defend themselves.
