    Here's a good strategy, lets wait and see what happens and not jump to any conclusions. The worst reaction is an overreaction.

    Thanks for making this thread. I guess I'll open up with my thoughts:

    I am a right wing conservative, so you'd expect me to believe we should have guns. Well, I do believe we should be able to own guns as it's our right here in the US. However, I feel that strict restrictions / background checks are needed. If: you're under some sort of criminal investigation, suffering from mental health issues, or you have some sort of violent criminal history, you should not be able to purchase / own a firearm.

    It's common sense that taking guns away completely will only help out a little. People will still acquire guns illegally, just like they acquire drugs illegally.

    Just my two cents.

    In Richmond, Virginia, a man opened fire at a Greyhound bus station, killing 3 civilians, and putting a Virginia State Police Trooper in the hospital with life threatening injuries. The suspect is dead. What are your thoughts on this? Source : http://www.cnn.com/2016/03/31/us/richmond-virginia-active-shooter/

    You don't think if the only people who had guns were criminals, cops, and the military that the common citizen would become so oppressed that they would revolt? It's not guns that are the problem, it's the maniacs that get a hold of them. They should have a more rigorous system to see if someone is responsible/mentally well enough to own a gun.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/19/us/politics/obama-to-limit-military-style-equipment-for-police-forces.html
    So the Obama administration has banned local police from getting certain equipment from the military that used to be available in the 1033 program. Would like to here some of your thoughts. Here's my opinion(that many especially non Americans will disagree with lol)
     
    I personally think it's stupid, like really f***ing stupid. After reading many comments and other people's thoughts on some articles, it seems like only the people who agree with the decision are uninformed in what the tools do, or have a negative perception of the police and their equipment because of the media. Cops are not buying tanks! They are buying and using armored(not armed) vehicles that are simply used as a defensive tool. A think 3-4 months ago, my town's CIRT team(SWAT) was taking shots responding to a barricaded EDP with a rifle. They took some shots from the guy and many of them hit the Bearcat. Had that been an unarmored van, the bullets probably would've sliced through and hit an officer. Tanks are equipped with cannons and automatic turret guns that can take down a buildings, completely opposite to armored vehicles
    People think cops are patrolling with M4s, they are not. They are sometimes using a semi-automatic ar15 rifle, that is simply based off the m4 platform. Those guns are easily available to the public(that are allowed), and many do own it. I believe they've also banned grenade launchers. None of the grenades swat use are lethal. It's all less lethal, like smoke and tear gas, and etc. And people get upset and wonder why some sway have military syle uniforms, so what. As long as the patrol officers are not working in camo unis I don't see a problem. I feel like the media and recent riots have made people think the police are just soldiers, when in reality the equipment rarely gets used, and is never used on patrol/everyday policing.
    Until I'm seeing cops everywhere patrolling in armed or armored vehicles and having vehicle checkpoints every 10 miles and other shit like that, I'm not believing in this militarization of the police and the police state bs. This decision seemed to made only to appease people. Got that off my chest lol

    Absolutely disgusting, no words can even describe the evil behind such actions. Mentally ill my ass, If he's dead then I'm glad he's gone. People like that don't deserve the gift of life, they deserve to be buried into dirt and forgotten. If he's alive, I hope they give him a life sentence so that he's got plenty of time to think about what he's done in a room with no one but himself.

    Not trying to be racist at all, but if the shooter was white, everyone would be talking about gun control and stating how easy it was for him to get a gun. But since he was black, I don't think many people are gonna be talking about that. It pisses me off that everyone thinks only white people murder...

    Lemme guess, you are buying a pre built computer? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASEEEE don't do that. For 1600 bucks, you can buy your own parts and build your own PC that perform MUCH MUCH better. Those specs might get you high with 50-60FPS as that GPU is weak at that price point. If you are willing to put in the effort and learn how to assemble a PC, I can teach you how to start and step by step info if you want. Don't worry, it isn't hard to do, just need to learn it. 
    Also to put in a real life example between buying that and building your own.
    Your pre-built=GTA V @high with 50-60ish FPS. 
    Building yourself=GTA V Maxed out with an easy 60+ FPS.
    Price=Same and also building it yourself makes it look a lot nice and clean :)
