    A fricken ginger…

      We’re not all nutbags. Some of us are just SEXY!

        I”m just kidding 😉

        • AaronHarrisinAlaska

          Okay 😀

        • SameJerkDifferentName

          No problem, I laughed when I read your comment. Even gave it a thumbs up!

    • AaronHarrisinAlaska

      A friggen racist

      • http://twitter.com/jimni27 Jimni27

        huh? It’s racist to call someone a ginger? Who let the lib in here?

        • AaronHarrisinAlaska

          The use of the word “friggen” to describe a ginger with no pretext or subtext that you were simply having a spot of ribbing fun can easily be looked upon as so. With the nature of these comment sections and the fact that more than a number of posters have flown racists colors its not inappropriate for me to assume the worst of intentions.

          But, you’ve stated it was all in fun. I can see the humor in it so long as it was meant humorously.

          • Michelle

            Because he used a replacement word for the F word, he’s a racist? Huh? Poking some fun at red heads makes him racist? What? It’s not inappropriate for you assume worst of intentions? Are you fucking kidding me? (Note I used the real F word, therefore I’m not a racist by your definition).

          • http://twitter.com/jimni27 Jimni27

            No problem. I actually get a kick out of the whole “Ginger” and “Day Walker” meme. It’s one of those things that are so absurd it’s funny, ya know? I mean a cute little freckle faced kid with red hair having no soul? Absurd. Well except in this case maybe :(

        • JustLikeAnimals

          The next time someone says a “white man shot the store owner” ima yell racist! and start a riot!

      • GaryTheBrave

        Ginger is a race?

        • SameJerkDifferentName

          Yes, yes we are. I’m declaring it right here, right now. As of today, we Gingers are a new race. And for the record, we disown that freak that did this stabbing. He’s lost his card forever.

        • JustLikeAnimals

          More like a slow crawl.

          • GaryTheBrave

            Bah-doom bah! He’s here all week. Tip your waitress. (It took me a couple of seconds to “get it.”)

          • JustLikeAnimals

    • JustLikeAnimals

      My first thought! hehehehe

      • http://twitter.com/jimni27 Jimni27

        I know, right? Come on you all were thinking it, haha.

        • JustLikeAnimals

          It’s okay. One of my friends is a Ginger.

          • SameJerkDifferentName

            Only one? So he’s a ‘token’ Ginger? YOU ARE A RACIST! I’m a Ginger and I have at least a half dozen Ginger friends. And when we attend our World Dominance Meetings… oops, I’ve said too much. Nevermind.
            (I do hope everyone realizes that was all in fun – if not, you’re too stupid to be here)

          • JustLikeAnimals

            Hehehe He’s a good Ph.D. friend (and educated Ginger!!!) I used to unblock the content filter for him so he could play WOW.

    On another note: We need to limit the human arms ability to thrust, down to 7 times…. For the children…. if it saves just ONE…. #DemandAVote

    • RblDiver

      Ban fully automatic arms!

  • SameJerkDifferentName

    I hope this punk gets raped repeatedly in prison. I wonder what kind of gun control laws would have prevented this? Oh, that’s right, NONE! However, if a ‘Whack-a-do’ law were to be passed, maybe this freak would’ve been locked up in a rubber room and not running around loose on campus.

    • John Farrier

      Really? You’re okay with prison rape?

      • SameJerkDifferentName

        I don’t give a crap about prisoners. They aren’t there because they were giving puppies to orphans. They’re in PRISON! and this piece of crap sliced up 14 people. Girls and boys faces. What if one of them was your daughter, or son?!
        Maybe you think we should give him satalite tv and a playstation?
        I say chain ’em up and put ’em out there picking up trash on the highways, and when he gets back to the big house at night after 14 hours of garbage picking, it’s time for him to be passed around like the b!tch that he is.
        No, I have no sympathy for garbage like this. And to make my position on punishment even more clear, I believe in the death penalty for murderers AND rapists. And if it’s a rape, I think the victim and or family should be allowed to castrate and beat the perp before their execution. Which, by the way, would be by hanging.
        Now mr bleeding heart, tell me how barbaric that is, and then tell me how you support abortion.

        • John Farrier

          Here we are going to disagree. I don’t think that people should be raped, in or out of prison.

          • JustLikeAnimals

            Ok. Can we repeatedly stab him?

          • John Farrier

            Only if that’s part of the sentence given to him after he’s been duly tried and convicted by a court of law.

          • JustLikeAnimals

            You’re absolutely no fun. Can’t rape ’em. Can’t stab ’em. Can we shoot him in the head? I’ll volunteer.

          • ForTheRepublic

            Ah, don’t worry. He’s just carrying 15 or 16 counts of assault and/or attempted murder in Texas. I’m sure he’ll be fine.

      • SameJerkDifferentName

        Yep

    • JustLikeAnimals

      More poetic if he’s repeatedly stabbed. =)

  • Love of Country

    After mourning all of the victims for some time, CEO’s at Ginsu, Yoshi Blades and Kyocera have already nervously called for a conference meeting in anticipation of the Dinglebarry’s impending fascist speech and ugly demonization of unnecessarily sharp kitchen knives. A letter of caution has already gone out to stock and bondholders as well and a hopeful meeting with the Texas Chamber of Commerce has been called for to discuss a potential move.

  • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

    And it will completely elude the libs. The problem isn’t guns, magazines or background checks. It’s not even knives.

    We have a LOT of people who value life so little that they don’t have a problem with going out in public to kill or hurt as many people as possible and then maybe kill themselves.

    There is something else involved here and I’m betting it has to do with drugs administered by school systems around the nation.

    • Michelle

      Bingo. I’ve been saying this all along to my anti-gun friends. The problem isn’t the weapon used, it’s the culture of violence – we have to address the causes and conditions of violent attacks or they will continue. Ban guns, they’ll use knives, they’ll use homemade bombs, etc. And what leaves me amazed is they come back with, “Well, at least 5 people stabbed isn’t 5 people shot and killed.” So that means they accept 5 people being violently attacked and their lives permanently changed? I don’t. I don’t accept 5 people being stabbed any more than I accept 5 people being killed. I would like the root of the problem addressed, I want the violent attacks stopped. Libs focus on the guns and not the behavior and addressing the REAL problem means they accept countless people being stabbed.

      • torpedoman2002

        Very good point. I’m pounding my head against a brick wall trying to explain this to my liberal family members. They at one time owned guns. When they went anti-gun they sold two of my guns. That is another topic. They said the same thing about the stabbings in China I think it was. Their point was no one died. They didn’t care about possible mental problems the people may experience. They didn’t care about the life changes the people will have. They haven’t said anything about these stabbings, but I’m sure once they start talking about them that will be their reasoning also. No one died they will tell me. it’s pathetic.

      • trixiewoobeans

        You have to understand, this “culture of violence” is the bastard child of Liberal policies over the years, and they ARE NOT going to address it because deep down, they KNOW those policies failed, and this is the result. In true Liberal fashion, instead of taking responsibility, they are blaming everything but themselves.

        • Michelle

          I understand that perfectly and in fact, have said that exact thing to them. Liberals don’t want to take a look at our culture of violence and hate because it means…taking a look at themselves. They’d rather take away one of my rights than take a look at results of their own collective bad decisions over the past few decades.

    • http://www.facebook.com/luke.givens.963 Luke Givens

      So does using a violent incident as an opportunity to knock people you disagree with politically qualify you for the “ghoul” label? Or is it only when people talk in favor of gun control that that is the case?

      • Bob

        Obama feels free to use violent incidents i.e. Newtown to push his anti-gun agenda and “knock people”.

        Have an honest debate on violence, violent movies/video games/ mental health. Until then it’s an anti-gun agenda. Don’t you care about the kids?

      • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

        When I hear politicians telling me that “we need to address this problem” right after Sandy Hook, and they don’t really address the problem, I’m going to question them.

        Sandy Hook was a convenient “crisis” as Rahm Emmanuel would put it. The Democrats have gone full speed to attack the 2nd Amendment without once asking what is the real problem with the mass killings that make the news.

        The problem IS NOT me and millions of other law abiding gun owners who value the rights guaranteed by the Constitution.

    • tjcuzns

      I think you are probably correct.

  • Ron Morisseau

    The left now want to ban steel

    • Michelle

      Naw, they’re totally cool with mass stabbings. They’re saying, “At least it’s 15 stabbed and not 15 killed” So as long as a person is only stabbed and their lives permanently changed, Libs are fine with that.

      • AaronHarrisinAlaska

        This. What this guy said. That’s the exact language the likes of Moore and Morgan will use.

      • 364NKL

        Personally, I’d rather be shot than stabbed. It is my biggest fear.

        • Michelle

          I’d rather not be attacked at all, but the Left is cool with me being attacked by a knife.

      • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

        And yet they love to say, “If it only saves one child.”

        • trixiewoobeans

          As long as it’s not in the womb!

  • mike_in_kosovo

    More innocent victims of an Unfettered Criminal Zone…are you proud of your work, Liberals?

  • DV S1EOG

    And this is why we need to ban guns. If there were no guns then none of these people would have been stabbed…………………….. Remember, there was NEVER any violence or murder before guns were invented, ever.

  • rangerrebew

    It is fortunate none of the victims had guns as they may have blown the guy’s head off and then been charged with murder. It is always better, just ask any liberal, to have 12 people victimized than smoke one perpetrator.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      If someone had ventilated this assclown’s cranial cavity they would most assuredly NOT have been charged. This douche is clearly a deadly threat to anyone around him and, probably the more salient fact, he is in Texas. Lights out, biatch!!!

  • Saar

    Prayers to the victims, with that said.

    They didn’t have a knife free zone. Really.. the media will maybe do a evening blib on this and move on– to the same effect as other people have written here already- the problem isnt with the inanimate objects, its the people that are the issue- removing the ability to defend one’s self allows yourself to become a victim. But yeah dont let common sense get in the way with your agenda.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      Yeah. Those female victims should have told him they were menstruating or urinated on themselves. That apparently works in Colorado.

  • AaronHarrisinAlaska

    For the sake of the children we must ban the possession of assault metal.

    • Roto

      Look at Great Britain, if U.S. liberals get their way….

  • Roto

    Think I heard a groan at CNN when police said there was no gun or children killed

    • JustLikeAnimals

      hehehehe Piers Morgan put his penis back in his pants.

  • Matt Harrison

    The Obama rhetoric on mass shootings will be muted by this proof that it takes an evil heart, not a firearm, to injure/kill mass numbers of victims. The federal background checks to buy pocket knives, steak knives, and other sharp kitchen utensils should be argued by Harry Reid no later than Friday!

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Ban assault knives now!!!

  • http://twitter.com/Stimulus4U Marty Luther

    We need to have a conversation about banning knives. <–Liberals?

    Prayers for the victims.

    The Dear Liar will not doubt call for Universal Registration on knives and anything that can be used to make a knife – Metal, Plastic, Stone, Glass,…

  • $35072932

    How could this happen?

    Why didn’t people control to this extent stop this?

    13 Killed in Rampage Shooting in Serbia, Under Strict Gun Control
    http://gunwatch.blogspot.com/2013/04/gunman-kills-13-people-in-serbian.html

    Draconian gun restrictions do not stop mass public shootings. Yesterday, in Serbia, where semi-automatic and automatic rifles are outlawed, and licenses to own firearms are only issued when the Ministry of the Interior determines that the the applicant has a valid “need”, a man went on a rampage near Belgrade, killing 13 people.

    Pretty soon you’re gonna need a background check before you can peel a potato.

      You ain’t kidding!

      I had my peeler confiscated and I am only allowed to use Potato Buds.
      I feel cast out and ashamed.

    • trixiewoobeans

      I hope so, I hate peeling potatoes.

  • 364NKL

    Uh oh. Here comes the ban on knives. You better buy them before they are banned.

  • TocksNedlog

    Well, isn’t that just like a loon — bringing a knife to a gun-free zone.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      Like a dumbass to bring a knife to anything in Texas. That’s suicide by stupid.

  • TocksNedlog

    I’m still trying to figure out how he managed to injure so many people WITHOUT a collapsible stock.

    • torpedoman2002

      Would a folding knife or switch blade be considered a fully automatic knife. They do collapse into a convenient concealable weapon. They can be thrust into someone over and over. Wouldn’t the liberal definition consider this an fully automatic weapon?

    Oh look, another public school

  • Louise Uznanski

    I know I’m skeptical but what is going on in Texas? Is this a setup or are we just hearing about all these NJ now?

    Kinda shoots a big hole in the theories of certain persons.

    Good thing its a gun free zone…

    coming soon knife ban, knife regulation, and knives with multiple blades is a must do
    It will all make us feel much better, was this a gun free and knife free zone? Anyone, Bueller, Bueller?

    Time for Obama to pass sensible cutlery laws NOW and end this senseless violence! Plastic sporks for everyone!!!

    • JustLikeAnimals

      Watch it! Sporks will put your eye out.

    • Roto

      Yep, we’ll end up like the U.K. — Basic laws on knives, it is illegal to:

      – sell a knife of any kind (including cutlery and kitchen knives) to anyone under 18
      – carry a knife in public without good reason, unless it’s a knife with a folding blade 3 inches long (7.62 cm) or less, e.g. a Swiss Army knife
      – carry, buy or sell any type of banned knife
      – use any knife in a threatening way (even a legal knife, such as a Swiss Army knife)

      The maximum penalty for an adult carrying a knife is 4 years in prison and a fine of £5,000.
