Perpetual3am And here I thought that they fixed the gun laws around gun shows, silly me!!

BBC News - Gun dealers sell pistols 'without background check'

The gun control laws in the US are just plain stupid IMO.

Flick Montana I'm just thinking, if Senator Giffords does make a full recovery she is going to be a major political force to be reckoned with. She'll be raised up as some kind of miracle hero politician. It will be interesting to see how that turns out.

You spelled intellectually wrong. Clubmyke, is that you?

Sardonic witticism, point and laugh. Ha!

Deviant A few things..

While I agree that this guy..

is bat shit crazy, I don't have any trouble saying that outside sources influenced this. As Snowolf (whom I swear is my evil twin or something) said, the statements Palin and the rest made are completely inciting. I liken this to the people who join religi.....I mean cults. They are not sound minded and are influenced easily. I'm not saying it's an excuse, but it was certainly a "propellant near a spark".

Although you pose a very good thought-provoking question, it doesn't actually bring the discussion back to the Tucson incident. I don't think any kind of big deal is being made out of whether the shooter should have been id'd sooner.

But as far as your question is concerned, think: restraining orders against abusive spouses. Even if everyone involved is virtually certain that the scumball is going to come around and do bad, the cops can't do diddly until after the fact.

Are you fucking kidding me? That was actually posted by someone?

Biggs To bring the discussion back to the Tucson incident, what does one do when someone seems really unstable and dangerous yet has posed no physical danger? Is there a protocol? Do you wait until something happens and then reveal your feelings? Or do you think in many cases, it's sort of a 'hindsight is 20/20' type of thing where at the time, you thought the person was simply a bit 'off' and now that something drastic has happened, the fog clears a bit.

The reason I ask is because in the MSNBC article, one of his community college classmates (who worked in a mental hospital I believe) was extremely worried that the shooter might actually do something dangerous. She informed the teacher (although it doesn't say if that was what got him on the school's 'be aware of' list) of her concerns -- going so far as to sit next to the door with her purse ready should something happen -- she'd get out quick.

So what do you think is 'okay' in terms of what to do? Do you do nothing because it really is none of your business? Do you voice your own concerns to an authority? Do you simply sit next to the door?

Has anyone been in a situation where you thought, 'that person right there, they're going to be dangerous some day'? What did you do?
