    IMHO there will never be an end to the crazies that exist no matter what society does. Unfortunately one of the problems with living in a free society we are going to be subjected to psycho's every once in awhile. Doesn't matter what anyone does. Just part of the equation.

    Exactly......nor can they stop every shooter who decides to go off the deep end. Point being, if you want to leave your safety only in the hands of the federal/local governments, then you have to accept these outcomes. People have to start being aware, paying attention to weird behavior. Even a well armed citizenry won't stop them all, but it may do some good in some cases. Saving some lives is better than saving none in my book anyway.

    I read that these 2 didn't have any gun permits for their weapons. Which in my opinion goes to show that no matter the gun laws, criminals don't abide by them anyway. If you ask me, it is more important to federalize the crime of owning an unregistered gun. Make it a felony....but you know what would happen then ? They'd cry your putting minorities in jail, or some other race your picking on. Seems lately in our country, agendas get in the way of common sense policy making.

    I brought up earlier the need to have a more secure border and better scrutiny in our visa programs. Common sense to me anyway. What we get is an 800 page immigration bill that will become another cluster f$%k. Doesn't nail down border security, nor adress the anchor baby laws we have yet seeks to have us keep tabs on illegals for 13 years. You know the manpower involved in just that ? Pandering laws, such as this, will ruin our nation. They've done a pretty darn good job so far in my opinion. For a nation that supposedly prides itself on freedom, equality, we do a pretty good job dividing citizens into groups and religous beliefs while sucking away at privacy rights.

    I won't even get into why the heck we are still in the middle east, thats a whole nutha subject. Sometimes I wake up, make the mistake of turning on the news and wonder to myself if anybody is driving the bus. If you ever want to ruin your day, watch the news in the morning.

    BTW- Mike....that cat with the tinfoil hat is priceless. Right up Mr. BBL's alley. I do have a question, when making tinfoil hats should the shiny side be on the outside or inside ?

    I wondered about this - if that's the case, it is pretty remarkable given that MA has pretty strong gun laws.

    Criminals don't follow laws. That's what makes them a criminal. I have yet to hear a compelling argument on how a piece of paper will stop a projectile.

    Among a fringe community of paranoids, aluminum helmets serve as the protective measure of choice against invasive radio signals. We investigate the efficacy of three aluminum helmet designs on a sample group of four individuals. Using a $250,000 network analyser, we find that although on average all helmets attenuate invasive radio frequencies in either directions (either emanating from an outside source, or emanating from the cranium of the subject), certain frequencies are in fact greatly amplified. These amplified frequencies coincide with radio bands reserved for government use according to the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). Statistical evidence suggests the use of helmets may in fact enhance the government’s invasive abilities. We speculate that the government may in fact have started the helmet craze for this reason.

    You need to ground the Al helmets in order for them to stop the RF signals. Of course that's not much fun having a ground wire going from your helmet to earth and it may slow your movements. down.

    You got that right! Rf and ground planes are a finicky animal to say the least. RF is what was cut when the city was locked down. DC is what should flow to ground through these wackos whence the bureaucratic BS is dispensed with.

    It's been requested that we refrain from graphic morgue photos, electrocuted animals and other equally gruesome articles/videos. This is a website devoted to the pleasures of home audio/video entertainment.
    Wasn't this tragedy violent enough?
    Thanks

    It's interesting to see all the "debate" that's been generated above, but I think it's time to put it to rest and spend some time "reflecting"!
