# Christ, when I was in school my biggest worry was not having pubes.
So I left my career as a teacher. *badum!*

It is a little harsh for those of us over here (I'm in Richmond VA)... but at the same time I can understand how America must look.

I always wonder if should make images like this (overstepping the line and that) but it looks like the window of opportunity is wide open :D

Yep. Welcome to B3ta!

# Yeah, but still...
it's a little soon for that, ya know? Give us Americans a few days first. The whole thing's really fucked up, especially if you happen to know people going to VT, or even work with the parents of students there.

# I think your anguish is entirely justified - however,
in the event of a major newsworthy trauma that is likely to upset you should the piss be ripped, b3ta probably isn't the best place to hang out immediately afterwards. There are lots of sites (rightly) saying how awful the whole thing is. This is just a...different vibe. ;)

Sorry about the horribleness, though. I really do hope you chaps (as a nation, that is) learn some screamingly obvious lessons about gun ownership soon, before we have to sit and watch another 10 or 20 of these black days go by. *sad look*

# Actually
I came over here looking for some relief, something to make me laugh. This particular incident just kinda hit me hard, as it wasn't that long ago that I was in engineering school- and in less than two years, my son will be doing it too.

As for gun control- you're preaching to the choir. I'd love to get rid of every fucking one of them.

# That's the double-edged sword of B3ta I guess...
...every five seconds, one person sprays tea over their monitor while another temporarily loses all faith in humanity. ;)

As I said, personally I fully understand your grief. And yes, I had a feeling I was preaching to the choir, that's why I tried to be careful to specify 'you as a nation', as opposed to you personally.

With enough folks like yourself around, they'll have get rid of 'em all one day. Chin up. :)

# did you consider that possibly, if you're seriously looking for escapism in the wake of a major tragic world event
b3ta may be best avoided for a few days. just some advice.

please understand i think the whole thing's series of events is very shit and i have much sympathy for all those directly affected.

peace, n'all that....

# how true
But still, I'm amazed at the level of denial about European violence. I recall a British fellow murdering some 16 school children. A web search reminds, here's this:

Four years ago a man entered a British elementary school and shot dead 16 children and their teacher, triggering a fierce backlash against guns and calls for all privately owned firearms to be banned outright in the DEL. While arguments for and against guns raged in Britain; I decided to focus on America — a country that has historically embraced and celebrated gun ownership — a nation where a reported 40 percent of all households keep at least one gun.

The British author goes on about the US.

Here's the LA Times, no friend of the administration, or Republicans, or the NRA, or gun owners, or pretty much anybody right of dead center, offering a recap of recent European civilian violence, if not suppressed in the MSM, at least not vaunted.


See?, the narrative on gun control simply must not be contradicted, no matter what the numbers say.
