Geez...guy was out of prison on early release....for murder? ...and the leftists blame the gun?! Bizarro world, esp. in NJ where their gun laws are in line with Europe.

Notice all the silence from the usual gun grabbing suspects and the legacy media? This doesn't fit the narrative so they are quiet as church mice. And what about this mass shooting (17 people treated for gunshot wounds) busts the narrative? Several things.
.
The gun used was not a sporting rifle.
It was gang related.
It took place in a state with some of THE most stringent gun laws in the country.
It took place in a state with an incredibly low ratio of guns and gun owners to residents.
The bad guys weren't young white males.
It took place at 2:45 am.
.
Where's Alyssa Milano? Where's Nancy Pelosi? Where's Moms Demand Action? Where's David Hogg? Where's the CNN town hall?......... Evidently, none of them gives a sh*t if the people getting shot and the circumstances don't fit the narrative. They are nothing but a bunch of f'ing hypocrites.

BOLTAR says... June 18, 2018 at 10:52 a.m.

Packman has repeatedly stated that zero percent of shootings involve guns and has acknowledged being an anonymous troll, so what gives it any credibility here?

Both my assertions are confirmed here: m.arkansasonline. com/news/2018/may/11/no-gun-troubles-yet-say-colleges-201805/

The anonymous troll will probably respond with a lie that I said guns shoot themselves but will offer no link to prove its lie.

So when the anonymous troll wants you to take it seriously, just remember Packman, who has never retracted its absurd claim, still says zero percent of shootings involve guns.

The fact is shootings involve both guns and shooters, but many gun fetishists insist on addressing only the shooter side of the equation. If they admit both elements are essential components of these tragedies, they inevitably must admit we have to address effective gun control as well as the shooters themselves. Packman provides just one example of their craven intellectual dishonesty.

Boltar has repeatedly stated that guns fire themselves and has acknowledged being an anonymous tribal troll, so what gives it any credibility here?
.
Packman wins, again, as Boltar offers only childish ad hominem attack in lieu of reasoned rebuttal. Alas, when Boltar cannot dispute an argument, he/she sees their only recourse to attempt diversion with personal attack. Point, game, set match.........
.
"The fact is shootings involve both guns and shooters....." Boltar is slowly but surely coming around. Nice. Very nice. However, without the "shooter" the shooting NEVER happens.

Packman's derivative nonsense and clumsy mimicry serve as yet another de facto concession easily recognizable by its predictable lack of substance.

BOLTAR says... June 18, 2018 at 11:42 a.m.

So Packman, do you finally retract your repeated and absurd claim that zero percent of shootings involve guns? If so, what percent of shootings do you now recognize involve guns?

BOLTAR says... June 18, 2018 at 11:59 a.m.

ad hominem: directed against a person rather than the position they are maintaining.

A self-admitted anonymous troll is itself a fictional creation, so it cannot make a credible claim to being a victim of an ad hominem attack. Anything said of a work of fiction is arguably as true as the fiction itself. So quit whining, anonymous troll Packman.

Boltar's derivative nonsense and clumsy mimicry serve as yet another de facto concession easily recognizable by its predictable lack of substance (See what I did there, Boltar?).
.
And yet, given every chance, Boltar still cannot offer even a smidgen of reasoned rebuttal to my pointing out the hypocrisy of gun grabbing hypocrites like Boltar. Obviously, Boltar tacitly agrees with everything I said. Nice. Very nice.
.
Let me extend an olive branch, Boltar. You speak of "effective" restrictions to the 2A. Would you mind to define "effective" as well as "reasonable"?
.
Also, what would be the effect if all existing gun laws were followed? What percent of murders would occur if all laws were followed at all times? Looking forward to a civil discussion, Boltar.

So Packman, as I have told you many times, you have not established yourself as an actual person who is a fit partner for civil discourse. You could not even answer my question: do you finally retract your repeated and absurd claim that zero percent of shootings involve guns? If so, what percent of shootings do you now recognize involve guns?

As I have said many times, you are a self-confessed anonymous troll presently unworthy of anything but identification as such and as a fictional being deserving of dismissal.

Now that you have again been outed, go play with your trollmates.
