    I don't waste my time playing video games so that was the first thing I ever read on it (and really, the only thing I've read on it that gives me background). I felt it gave me enough background to at least understand the context of what others were posting on it in threats such as this.

      Just curious. Why is it that your response to someone talking about people acting like fools is to criticize the person bearing the news. Do you just not like to hear that bad things happen in this world or do you like to be a jerk all the time.

        KG, like you, has precious little to contribute other than idiocy like the WaPo article he posted earlier.
        "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

        There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

            For the record DE responding to me is useless I can't see it. your on my ignore list, I just happened to be looking over my dearest's shoulder. Paprika, you know that your level of asshattery earns you zero respect around here right? Same to you Darth. Neither of you are liked, nor cared about, you just are around because we tend to think you're entertaining. more or less a good laugh.

                  Pap, if you've got something cogent to add to the thread, fire away. Up your game or get out.

                    LT, I'm still curious what you meant earlier about it being a white comment.

                      What he's trying to say is that you aren't prostrating enough. See if you can learn how to phase body parts through the ground so you can place your head directly beneath his feet without disrupting his standing balance.

                        I'm guessing you mean "it" being this:

                        Mighty white of you.
                        Used to describe someone who thinks they've done a great deed, charitable action or sacrifice, but in reality they've done very little to help the human condition.

                        Earl: I gave that homeless man my half eaten apple.
                        Roger: Wow, thats mighty white of you.

                        It's idiomatic, but the UD does a decent job catching the flavor there.

                        This is well beyond "speech being chilled." It's about misogyny so rampant its proponents react to being called on it by making death threats toward random women.


                        But that's only tangential to the OP, which is about Utah and an open carry law so mindlessly enforced they can't even bar guns at a venue that's been openly targeted by a crazy intent on a shooting spree.

                        Now sure, I did post it to draw our local gun crazies out of their bunkers, but I didn't guess it'd draw out our local epos at the same time.

                        My bad.

                          How is Sarkeesian random? Seems to me that she's being targeted for her prominent role in the progressive Mutaween.

                          What would a gun ban achieve?

                              It might allow for civil discourse without the fear of gun play and killing.

                                Or, you know, it's fake.
