    Finally! One for the gun guys.

    Dad in St Louis shot dead gunman menacing his teen daughter, seriously hurt assailant

    A DAD who saw armed robbers holding a gun to the head of his teenage daughter opened fire on the men, killing one and critically injuring the other.
    The incident unfolded late Monday night in St Louis when the 17-year-old girl went outside her home to retrieve something from the car.
    Local Fox station, Fox4KC, reported that the teen was approached by two gunmen who demanded she return to the house.
    When the girl’s 34-year-old dad saw the men walking his daughter up to the house he grabbed a gun and opened fire, hitting both men.
    The girl’s mum, also 34, opened fire but reportedly did not hit either man.
    A 31-year-old, named by police as Terrell Johnson was killed at the scene.
    A second suspect fled the scene and was later admitted to hospital with gunshot wounds to his chest and thighs.
    The 33-year-old is in a critical but stable condition, police told Fox4KC.

    With Mom and Dad both blasting away, the Mom not very accurately, the daughter is very lucky she didn't get hit as well.

    I wonder if the Dad was a white guy, seeing his precious princess walking up towards the house with a couple of blacks, got the gun, shot em, and then made this story up?

    Late night, St. Louis, black guys (at least two of them), everyone armed to the teeth with no qualms about opening fire....I'm betting all parties knew each other, all were black folks, and it was about drugs.

    Gunman found dead after student killed at Oregon high school


    A teenage gunman armed with a rifle walked into an Oregon high school gym and shot a student to death yesterday before he was found dead in a bathroom stall, in the third outbreak of gun violence to shake a US high school or college campus in less than three weeks.
    Reynolds High School in the middle-class Portland suburb of Troutdale was immediately locked down, then evacuated room by room, as law enforcement officials converged on the campus of 2,800 students, which had been set for its last day of classes today before the summer break.
    “A gunman entered the high school this morning, shot one student. Unfortunately, that student has died,” Troutdale Police Chief Scott Anderson told a news conference. “The gunman was located and the gunman is also deceased.”
    Authorities identified the victim as 14-year-old high school freshman Emilio Hoffman.
    President Barack Obama expressed deep frustration last night at the inability of Washington lawmakers to tighten gun control measures in the wake of US shootings.
    “The country has to do some soul-searching about this. This is becoming the norm and we take it for granted in ways that, as a parent, are terrifying to me,” Mr Obama said in reply to a question at a White House online event.
    Oregon lawmakers have been at a legislative impasse for about two years over stricter gun control proposals.
    At the school, gym teacher and track coach Todd Rispler was grazed by a bullet but made his way to the school’s office to initiate the lockdown, possibly saving lives, Mr Anderson said.


    UnAmerican demonstration for the dead.


    Authorities have not publicly named the gunman nor said how he died, but USA Today cited a police spokesman as saying the shooter was a teenager who shot himself to death in a bathroom stall following the attack.
    The violence in northern Oregon was the latest in a string of fatal shootings in US public places since May, including one at a Christian college in neighbouring Washington state last week in which one student died.
    Television footage at the Oregon school showed police officers in helmets and tactical gear stepping from armoured vehicles and running near the school’s perimeter with rifles. Students streamed out of the school with hands raised.

    Love guns - they are great.

    However, all this kids walking into school shooting people. This isnot about guns. Fuck - they do this shit with knives, home made bombs, poisonous gas attacks will be next by some chemical nerds.

    Great bunch of people on the whole the folk from the USA but there is something terribly terribly wrong going on, and this is just not fricking right or normal.

    Take their guns away, they still find ways to do it, but perhaps not as easily. But this is like plucking off a leaf from a dying vine. Time to dig into the roots and find what the god damn problem is and sort it out.

    The shooting was the 74th on a U.S. campus since the December 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., according to the American Federation of Teachers, the union representing staff at Reynolds High.

    "This is the 74th time the safety of a school community has been shattered by a gunman. This is the 74th time students, educators and school staff have felt the terror of not knowing if they will ever see their loved ones again. This is the 74th time that parents have experienced the fear of not knowing what is happening to their children," AFT President Randi Weingarten said in a statement.

    Was reading a story yesterday about kids and guns. We do have a problem here.

    BUBBLEGUM AND BULLETS: KIDS WITH GUNS

    Stephanie Sparks is outside when the gun goes off. The moment is brief. She’s outside, and her five-year-old son just shot her two-year-old daughter in the chest. His rifle is the size and color of a toy – which is exactly why he chose it. When Keystone Sporting Arms started marketing their rifles to children – not just redesigning the weight and size, but pulling kids in by including child-friendly colors like neon pink, orange with flames, and leafy landscapes – they must have done so with the assumption that a five-year-old would not accidentally shoot his two-year-old sister. Then again, how could anyone expect that a five-year-old wouldn’t accidentally forget to check the chamber?

    ^^ Thats not the problem. I had a gun from a young age and never had the compunction to go crazy eight bonkers with it, even if my primary school head mistress deserved it after scuppering my plans.


    74 school shootings in 18 months is nothing to do with the above story (the Mum was at fault by the way, clearly). It has everything to do with an endemic failing somewhere or other. No one seems that concerned with finding out what and why?

    "A lot of people will say that, well, this is a mental health problem, it's not a gun problem. The United States does not have a monopoly on crazy people. (Laughter.) It's not the only country that has psychosis. And yet, we kill each other in these mass shootings at rates that are exponentially higher than anyplace else. Well, what's the difference? The difference is, is that these guys can stack up a bunch of ammunition in their houses and that's sort of par for the course."

    Can't the mods give Rick probation for a night, he'd love to say a few words here, I guess. Both the shot Negro men were approved criminals, one got away with murder due to technicalities. The other one served time for armed robbery. However, the shooter, daughter and mum most likely were Negroes as well, and the parents separated. The only clue that they might not be negroes is that the 17 years old daughter seems to have no kid of her own yet. And the nice house the single mum lives in.

    A lot of these shootings are related to the pharmaceutical industry, yet that problem gets very little attention.
