It is unclear whose initials he is referring to. He continues, “As for Dylann Roof? You (deleted)! You want a race war (deleted)? BRING IT THEN YOU WHITE …(deleted)!!!” He said Jehovah spoke to him, telling him to act.

Later in the manifesto, the writer quotes the Virginia Tech mass killer, Seung Hui Cho, and calls him “his boy,” and expresses admiration for the Columbine High School killers. “Also, I was influenced by Seung–Hui Cho. That’s my boy right there. He got NEARLY double the amount that Eric Harris and Dylann Klebold got…just sayin’.

In an often rambling letter to the authorities, and family and friends, he writes of a long list of grievances. In one part of the document, Williams calls it a “Suicide Note for Friends and Family”.

--He says has suffered racial discrimination, sexual harassment and bullying at work. --He says he has been attacked by black men and white females. --He talks about how he was attacked for being a gay, black man

“Yes, it will sound like I am angry...I am. And I have every right to be. But when I leave this Earth, the only emotion I want to feel is peace....”

“The church shooting was the tipping point…but my anger has been building steadily...I’ve been a human powder keg for a while…just waiting to go BOOM!!!!”.

FORT LAUDERDALE — Escorted by four Broward Sheriff's Office deputies, U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz solemnly called for more civility in political debate Sunday, a day after a gunman shot and critically injured her close friend Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona.

Wasserman Schultz, D- Weston, said both Republicans and Democrats have been guilty of heated rhetoric, which she said may have contributed to a shooting rampage at a "Congress on your corner" event outside a Tucson supermarket that killed six and injured Giffords and 12 others.

The South Florida congresswoman spoke at a media conference at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, shortly after arriving from Washington, D.C., for a ceremonial swearing-in Monday at the federal courthouse in Fort Lauderdale.

"It's our responsibility, whether we're Democrats or Republicans, whether we agree or disagree, to remember we're Americans first, and that words have an impact," she said. "We don't know when the words we've chosen will send someone whose psyche is frayed to begin with, over the edge."

Police believe the gunman is Jared Loughner, 22, who has a history of erratic behavior and has posted anti-government remarks on the Internet.

"Maybe we can all come together and push the shock jocks and the media, who pride themselves in whipping people into a frenzy on both sides, not to do that anymore," she said.

You mean the media exploiting the church shooting as another battle in the war on blacks/white privilege resulted in someone getting hurt? Who could have seen that coming.

This thread shall deliver.

The proper response is, "Now that a black man has reached out to revenge people white Amerikkka will disarm people."

We sure did. I mean you can still have a gun in Australia but no one bar police etc may carry in public anywhere, not that there's a need to anyway. Hunting is permitted of course on private property and in certain national parks with rifles only (with a permit) that have excess deer etc. but permits for those guns are strictly controlled with background checks. There are gun clubs around and I believe guns must be stored there between use or in a locked safe at home (not completely sure on that).

From an outside view of the US the thought that the public can roam around in many states, some in plain view and able to kill someone with just a pull of the trigger is a fairly scary thought. Strange that Clinton et al are talking tough words on gun control now that 2 reporters were killed live in air, but lets let dozens if not over a hundred mass shootings happen and do nothing. Now I'm not up on the power struggles of the U.S but am I right in saying the struggles with gun control are due to the power of the NRA/Republicans in the senate to get bills passed?

Don't know why it would be scary. Gun crimes are not committed by people who legally carry. They are pretty much the least likely people to commit a crime in the US.

And no, the "struggles with gun control" are due to fascist pigs trying to impose their will and power on free citizens. So fuck off and go ban some more small breasts you kangaroo fuck.

Guns per capita aren't very coorelated with gun related homicides.







Here's a map showing gun ownership compared to homicides.



If we look at violent crimes and homicides more broadly, the US is in the middle for homicides, but better than average for violent crime rates:

Finally, you'll see the US has a higher murder rate than European countries not using firearms. So perhaps our problem is homicide, not guns, because it sure seems people are willing to kill each other without a gun too.
