The message is that stronger gun control laws are not the answer.
So stop trying to make an American Battle Royale, and there will be less school shootings. Cause and effect, right? ;-)Apparently an American TV adaption of Battle Royale was canned following these events. This is literally the third time this has happened to Battle Royale
- Translated American release was canned because of school shootings (I wanna say Columbine?)
- The Virgina Tech shootings killed the chance at a Hollywood remake of the movie.
It's really fucking depressing how there's always a shooting to derail this kind of thing... that shootings have become so common that it can destroy an ENTIRE FRANCHISE.
The DC said:The same people who crowed about the Alex Jones (Piers Morgan) interview are conspicuously silent about this one. It’s only news when the Constitution is defended by a fat yelly guy from Texas who thinks Bush orchestrated 9/11 with aliens from Dimension X. The calm, soft-spoken Harvard Law School grad with the yarmulke is a lot tougher to demonize.
Morgan recoiled when Shapiro’s pocket copy of the Constitution came out, deriding it as ‘your little book.’ I believe Count Dracula once had a similar conversation with Abraham van Helsing.
Well, that's where you and I differ, I guess - to me, the constitution is the road map that got us to being hegemon.I find it hilarious when people use the Constitution as a -end all, be all- of an argument. It's nearly irrelevant in today's world and even the most basic ideas of are hard to take as 100% unbreakable truths since it was established.
Yeah, because people with gun are totally not overthrowing tyrannical governments and/or defying the world's only superpower until they lose their stomach and their will evaporates. Certainly that's never happened even once in the last 10 years, definitely not.Seriously, people who think if they have guns they can fight against a -tyrannical government- makes me laugh.
Remind me which two resistance/terrorist organization outlasted a superpower with drones and nukes until they packed up and went home, ceding the territory back to the eternal darkness of the hardline islamist sharia nightmare?remind me which superpower with drones and nukes was overthrown by its people
these are two incredibly different things and you know itRemind me which two resistance/terrorist organization outlasted a superpower with drones and nukes until they packed up and went home, ceding the territory back to the eternal darkness of the hardline islamist sharia nightmare?
A government that isn't willing to shoot it's unarmed civilians? How Tyrannical!It could be enough. Because not many people want to shoot their own citizens. Like how the Chinese had to go out to the provinces to find soldiers willing to shoot the protesters at Tienanmen Square. Even the Syrians are having trouble finding soldiers to keep killing armed civilians.
But you know what's really REALLY not the same thing? A fat guy with nothing but harsh words.They also did it with IEDs, RPGs, cellphones, laptops they used to hack drones, and the kind of training that comes decades of war (at least in Afghanistan) and the support of other foreign powers (including the superpower in question).
A fat guy with an AR-15 is really not the same thing.
It doesn't have to overthrow it, it just has to be extremely difficult to oppress.I'm surprised GasBandit is naive enough to think that a armed civilian populace would be enough to ovethrow one of the biggest and heavily armed military of the world.
Careful, if you even sound slightly like you're taking my side, the smarm brigade will start peppering you with fallacies untill you're completely phallused.It could be enough. Because not many people want to shoot their own citizens. Like how the Chinese had to go out to the provinces to find soldiers willing to shoot the protesters at Tienanmen Square. Even the Syrians are having trouble finding soldiers to keep killing armed civilians.
