We really need to consider a ban on assault rifles. There really is no need for any normal citizen to own one.

Posted by: elchan (a.k.a elchan2012) on Jul 22, 13:16 in response to Gijoevu's post With the shooting and possible future shooting, will VOD...

This had nothing to do with midnight movies, or movies in general.  If it wasn't a theatre, the crazies would find another venue.

With the shooting and possible future shooting, will VOD become more common?   Gijoevu on Jul 22, 12:48

we all better stay in doors, what if we get knocked over crossing the road to the theatres too. VOD all the way {nm}   PaulBuxton2011 on Jul 22, 12:50

Hopefully no crazy person is inspired by The Strangers or Last House on the Left... You can't even be safe indoors!!!!!   skamanfu on Jul 22, 13:54

What's to say a crazy person won't show up at your home? I just don't see this having a long term effect on the theater industry...   LanceStorm22 on Jul 22, 12:56

Again, criminals do not obey the law. {nm}   Tanker on Jul 22, 13:24

Then add something else for criminals to go to jail for. I could use your argument against quite a few laws. Concealed weapons?   Catzan on Jul 22, 13:33

I'm in Texas and you can take my legal concealed weapon out of my cold dead fingers. Seriously! {nm}   arbybaker on Jul 22, 13:50

I really don't have problems with people carrying hand guns to protect themselves.   elchan on Jul 22, 14:08

And you have to go thru a process in order to have a concealed weapon...and it isn't an assault rifle carrying 100 rounds.   Catzan on Jul 22, 14:41

my pistol carries 9 rounds {nm}   RazorHawk on Jul 22, 15:03

Again, a false argument, Tanker. I don't need a flamethrower to disinfect my bathroom because bacteria don't "obey the law".A can of Lysol    BSmurf on Jul 22, 13:35

Again, I don't recall any mass shooting committed by criminals.   elchan on Jul 22, 13:38

Why allow people to drive? They might hurt someone. {nm}   arbybaker on Jul 22, 13:51

A car is a means of transport. An assault rifle is used for one thing only, to kill. {nm}   elchan on Jul 22, 14:09

murder is about the most serious crime there is...   Colt 1911 on Jul 22, 13:52

Exactly. The guns and ammo were legally obtained (at least from the news reports I've heard). He had no criminal record previously,   skamanfu on Jul 22, 13:53

Seriously! I remember something happening in Oklahoma City back in 1995 that did not involve guns at all. There is always a way. {nm}   arbybaker on Jul 22, 13:56

Yes, and again if they had access to higher yield explosives, how many more people would have been killed. {nm}   elchan on Jul 22, 14:06

A Near total ban on private firearm ownership didn't stop the Norway shooter...nm   Colt 1911 on Jul 22, 13:37

But, would it have been worse if he had easier access to assault rifles, and explosives? {nm}   elchan on Jul 22, 13:41

Every able bodied Swiss male is given a full auto machine gun, and trained to use it. lowest gun crime    Colt 1911 on Jul 22, 13:48

I don't have the stats, but I don't believe Americans are more prone to "going off".   elchan on Jul 22, 13:58

I have many customers in Switzerland. This is becoming more of a hot button issue. Suicide by gov'g commissioned weapons is rising steadily. {nm}   goodvibe61 on Jul 22, 14:15

Well, near total... Quite a few Norwegians have firearms. Used to be a lot more, and after it was reduced, murder rates went markedly down.   Facto on Jul 22, 14:14

VOD has been the future for last 30 years... the future has come and gone and the theatres still stand...you know why?   b4bad on Jul 22, 13:52

the theater "experience" is huge...the "shared experience" is even more of a draw...nm   Colt 1911 on Jul 22, 15:44
