    Those three teens were thugs they would have killed the guy gun or no gun. The problem is not the gun. It was those three teens and there idea of "We are board lets go kill someone."

    I mean really: http://www.khq.com/story/23225525/88-year-old-man-assaulted-at-eagles-ice-arena-has-died

    Two 16 year olds beat a 88 year old man to death I guess we can blame the guns for that one to...:rolleyes:

    Ah, flawless logic: people get mugged by people without guns; ergo, guns are never the problem. I believe that's traditionally classified as the "Argumentum ad Completely Unrelatedum."

    People should be allowed to have grenade launchers because you can kill people in other ways.

    Taking AWAY THE DAMN GUN WAS NOT GOING TO STOP THESE THREE TEENS FROM KILLING THE GUY. What PART OF THAT DO YOU NOT GET. THE GUN WAS NOT THE PROBLEM. THE PROBLEM WAS AND REMAINS THAT THE THREE OF THEM HAD NO PROBLEM WITH KILLING SOMEONE. THEY AND I QUOTE

    *bored. and how could you possibly know that? without a gun, it would have at least been more work.

    Is the investigation finished already?

    Also

    I imagine it is much easier to pull a trigger from a distance than it is to kill a man with your bare hands or a knife or something.

    Now I'm really confused. Why did we invent guns in the first place?

    We invented guns to shoot tin cans off tree stumps.

    we invented guns so law-abiding citizens could protect themselves from lunatic criminal teenagers... uh... with guns... or boards.

    See, we all need guns because "he needed killin'" is justifiable defense for shooting someone, therefore, we all need guns in case someone needs killin'.

    I don't understand why the right is comparing this to the Trayvon Martin case. They're not similar. There is no one justifying the killing of Christopher Lane, unlike half of America who thought that Zimmerman should have been allowed to kill Trayvon under the given circumstances.

    Mostly the bit where you dragged in an unrelated mugging incident and felt my response warranted an all-caps reply.

    Exactly. Contrary to popular belief, Zimmerman didn't set out to kill anybody. He was a pushy jerk with a gun who set out to harass somebody who he felt didn't belong in the neighborhood. He only ended up shooting around the time his head was literally being rammed into the cement. Probably not part of his original plan.

    Awww, @anidanami124 is trying to use his words to argue. Adorable. Flawed from the outset, but, adorable too.

    What news could their possibly be? Some guys killed another guy. They got arrested, are being charged, and will go to prison. The other guy is still dead.

    Yeah, it's almost as if there is no controversy here because maybe, just maybe, the suspects were arrested before any need for public protests and are probably going to get punished. Unlike another case the OP is trying to link this too...

    Does anyone know if these guy's legally owned guns? i'm not really pro guns or anti guns, but if they are legally owned guns that they used to kill then this is definity a strike against pro gun laws. A ton of my cousins are huge gun nuts they rant and rave about how banning guns would do nothing because it would just mean only criminals would have guns..
