All The Wrong People Owning Guns

Two high school students got shot in Vegas by someone suffering from road rage.

"This was not a school shooting. It was a road rage incident that occurred a couple of blocks from the school and just happened to end at the high school," Montoya said.

Montoya said the shooter and a student at the school nearly collided at a nearby gas station and the two drivers exchanged angry words. The shooter then followed the student to Western High School, outside downtown Las Vegas.

"The suspect followed the car as it went into the high school parking lot and fired 4-7 shots, hitting one of the student passengers and an unrelated female who happened to be in the parking lot at the time," Montoya said.

Too bad the guy wasn't equipped with a taser instead. I hear "they save lives by reducing the use of firearms." Except for the part where some people have died after a taser was used on them.

The gun has however been at the centre of fresh controversy this weekend over the death of a man in Florida after police used a Taser to subdue him.

Its use by police in the UK has also sparked debate. Late last year a man in the north of the country died three days after being shot with a Taser.


Amnesty International has long campaigned against the use of Tasers, arguing they have been linked to more than 150 deaths in the USA and Canada since 2001.


Mebbe in addition to a criminal background check, they should make people who want weapons to go through a mental health check. I'm pretty sure i don't want you having a gun or a taser if you're crazy even if you never committed a crime before.

Actually, i'm pretty sure most people are crazy and stupid, so mebbe none of you should have weapons. If the government can make you wear seatbelts for your own good, they should also keep you from having firearms for the same reason.

No, no, no. You've got it all wrong. Its because there are crazy people out there with guns that we all need guns. That way we can defend ourselves. If those kids had guns, they'd be alive right now. Sure, that other guy would be dead, and maybe a couple of bystanders too. But those kids with guns would be alive. In jail, but alive.

Besides, when Bush declares martial law in the US one week before the 2008 presidential elections, you might want to be able to shoot back when they decide to round up all the people who weren't registered as Republican voters. Don't take any guff from those swine.
