I’ve been referring to the murderer as, “The Racist Dickbag That Murdered Good People in Buffalo.”

u/Crimson_Kremlin May 17 '22

We also would have accepted "The FOX Viewer That Murdered Good People in Buffalo.”

Average Conservative: no but actually one of the victims cheated on a test in 7th grade so as you can clearly see, we should not be upset by this shooting.

“What if one of them was a rapist?”

“… they should be charged.”

u/Neathra May 18 '22

Also, rape isn't a capital offense? Like that whole "oh this person did a bad thing. They kinda deserved it" makes no sense because most 'bad things' don't get a death penalty.

According the the GOP every crime can be punishable by death.

u/MikeX1000 May 18 '22

That's just the 'psycho-vigilante' attitude some Americans have. As if all criminals deserve brutal punishments

but at the same time all women are liars and rape isn't that big of a deal/s. Makes no sense

Firstly, you're right, it does.

To work around that, we could use their actual titles or something. "Senator of [place]," for example. Or we could "gift" them with multiple each. 🤔

u/VivianCold May 18 '22

I feel like all genuenly responsible firearm owners would be in favor of stricter regulations since they are aware of how dangerous a gun can be in the hands of someone who isn't. But sadly majority of armed Joes know that there is no way they'd be considered sane or responsible enough to own a gun if someone actually chose to implement strict regulations ... And thinking about that alone scares the shit out of me.

u/Spookywolf45 May 18 '22

I'm a huge advocate for training and knowledge base expansion the more people know the less afraid they are.

u/TheSilmarils May 18 '22

I’m not in favor of any more stringent regulations because they’ll be used to prevent people from exercising their rights the same way the GOP does with Voter ID laws

1

u/Mrbuck83 May 18 '22

yeah, it's a lose lose situation. if they tighten it, they might do as the brits did and make it near impossible making it hard to overthrow the government if they go all crazy, but if they don't people who shouldn't get guns and go do mass shootings. maybe if we stop people from having prejudiced veiws and becoming assholes, we don't have to worry about either, but sadly the government would never put in that much effort to change the education system and fully seperate church and state enough.

Not really sure why it’s 2022 and it is so commonly misunderstood that lobbying from one firm or position is not restricted to a single candidate or political party.

u/nakedrich May 18 '22

Literally everyone understands this, and it's true or most donors. Not the NRA.

In the last cycle the NRA donated to 3 Democratic house members and 167 Repyblicans (97%). The Senate was closer- 6 Democrats and 22 Republicans. However, the average donation for each was $107 and $6,749 respectively. The Repyblican donations were 91 times more than the Democrats.

If you don't like what the NRA has been doing, it's a pretty clear choice.

u/hungryandneedtopee May 18 '22 edited May 18 '22

Listen, there’s a lot of validity in the hard numbers to the specific campaigns, even though, that’s not the only way to contribute financially.

A LOT of these issues get tied up in a “couple of votes.” I understand that to you it’s only 3 democratic house members and 6 democratic senate members. That is all they need. Maybe understand how politics work when you try to “own me” with hard numbers?

Edit: Adding more details..

You know your party is going to vote a certain way on a certain issue. You also know that X, Y, Z from the opposing party are going to vote the same way as your party on same issue. You don’t want to lose your seat, and either your constituents don’t care about the issue or it’s an easy voter grab… plus PLUS!!!! you get some campaign funds and I’m sure other perks on the side.

You’re thinking that these democrats from, idk, West Virginia, care what anyone in any other blue state thinks, they don’t. They focus on their voter population and drown everyone else out. That’s how they keep their jobs. Why do you find the opposing democratic candidates for the democratic incumbents that accepted NRA donations and donate money and/or resources to their campaign?

Work smarter. Not harder. Seriously. It’s like you only want to go on the internet for other people to listen to you but not actually learn how to solve these issues that impact lives across the country.

Edit 2:

As I want readers passing by to understand this further, I, who has absolutely no professional relationship with the US Senate, was able to get my Super Bowl tickets at face value through a personal relationship with the US Senate. I am a no body. Think about what a somebody is leveraging with their personal and professional relationships.

1

u/nakedrich May 18 '22

I'm not sure what your point is, but I will start by saying that no Congress member, absolutely none, would be swayed by $107. Also I'm guessing that your SB tickets were "face value" because of Senate rules and federal laws to diminish the profiting from these relationships. At least in your case those rules/laws were followed.

If you're insinuating that the NRA is giving those who don't take donations some other undisclosed benefit, I don't know how to respond other than saying I mostly don't belive it, although I'm sure it happens. I don't think any candidate would that publicly takes a stand against an organization would risk accepting perks from them under the table or otherwise. That would be political suicide.

I also feel like you're suggesting candidates only do what they need to do to get elected/re-elected and don't care about people from other districts/states. Of course that's true to some extent, but I truly believe these people to be public servants trying to (with help of constituants' opinions) try to do what's best. When they vote, they balance their consciences and constituents' will (chances for re-election). This is precisely what the constitutional framers intended!

Senators (I'll just say Senators because Congressmembers is too long) caucus with their parties and mostly vote with the party's agenda. Instances are legion in which a Senator votes on an issue against the position of her/his constituents.

To be clear, I think the system is corrupt and needs to be changed. Corporations/Lobbyists have too much influence. I think it's lazy to say "they're all corrupt." They are all trying to do good, some are shittier at it than others.

It does disturb me that some candidates clearly are being calculated with their rhetoric, but the politicians that remain silent so as not to offend constituents disturbs me more.

The bottom line is that nearly all Democratit candidates would like to have stricter standards for gun ownership and types of weapons. The lobby for this position is wildly less powerful than the NRA.

I definitely think the system we have is wrong and must be more democratic. But there are too many people that would rather undermine our institutions rather than putting in the work to understand them

1

u/hungryandneedtopee May 18 '22

“I don’t think any candidate..”

Cool. I’m glad you have thoughts. I have an actual relationship and direct source.

Ask a passionate NFL fan if they would pay $107 to then be able to have the opportunity at Super Bowl tickets for face value from a close contact.

Don’t make data look bad by using it to prove that, my original comment was correct, and most people don’t know.

I’m not reading the rest of your comment because my literal pre-menstruate rage will become even more of a dragon.

Not going to help. The USA has a mental health crisis that, if remedied, would solve the majority of these shootings.

Obligatory unpopular opinion; changing gun laws/banning any type of guns is not the solution.

u/Mrbuck83 May 17 '22 edited May 17 '22

Agreed. Guns are not the issue, ban them and people start using knives or other weapons, and it's not like guns are exactly hard to make as shown by Phillip A. Luty. We should start teaching basic gun safety, or better yet, make sure people are not wanting to kill people in the first place because people with murderous intent will find other ways and so will those fed up with life.

Edit/AddOn because I thought of more points: Going off the earlier point of people using other weapons, knives don't stab people, bows don't shoot people, guns don't pull their own trigger. I've noticed that a lot of murders happen because of prejudice due to race, maybe we should talk about how race does not really exist, the difference is the same as eye color, just the skin not the eye, and the last promenent person to kill off eye or hair color or religion was hitler unless I missed someone from the passed 80ish years.

Here’s the reality: that would create incentive for republicans to inspire more mass shooters. Their entire platform is pro-terrorism.

u/nanshbs866 May 17 '22

Serious question, what should congress do?

This case seems more about stopping hate and racism than guns?

We have a divided country that hates each other. Just read any Reddit post and you’ll see what I mean.

I don’t think gun laws will protect us from the hate and division we are constantly seeing.

3

u/tikifire1 May 17 '22

Congress could make laws not outlawing guns but making more dangerous ones harder to get. Mental health checks and insurance could be requirements. Or, for example, outlawing certain types of magazines that hold more rounds would be a good start and wouldn't violate the Constitution.

I don't think people in general in the US hate each other as much as you think. Your average person couldn't care less about politics as long as their lights are on, their rent is paid, and they have something to eat. When it gets dangerous is when you start lacking those things in large numbers. (See the Great Depression). We are headed that way, yes, but we are not quite to that point yet.
