RE: Mass shooter targets spas.
(March 17, 2021 at 12:04 pm)arewethereyet Wrote: Live updates: Suspect in Atlanta-area spa shootings that left eight dead might have frequented businesses, authorities say (msn.com)

Sounds like the shooter hated himself for his sex addiction and decided to remove further temptation.  The victims being Asian wasn't a factor.  The shooter couldn't control his penis or his gun.

Police arrested Robert Aaron Long, 21, after a brief manhunt and said he is the suspect in all three shootings. Authorities said Long took responsibility, and they believe he acted alone. “He made indicators that he has some issues, potentially sexual addiction, and may have frequented some of these places in the past,” Sheriff’s Capt. Jay Baker said at a news conference. “We still have a lot of things to process.”

Baker later added that in their interview with Long, 21, the suspect indicated that the spas were “a temptation” for him. “It’s a temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate,” Baker told reporters. “It’s still early on, but those were comments that he made.”


...

  • Baker said Wednesday that Long claimed during interviews that the acts of violence Tuesday were not racially motivated. Atlanta Police Chief Rodney Bryant said that it remains unclear whether the shootings could be classified as a hate crime.

Yea and? His motive did not change the fact he got access to those firearms.

He bought those firearms just hours before he did what he did. A waiting period might have caused him to rethink his actions.

My point - which of course flew right over your head - is that it's thought at this time not to be a hate crime.  

You were probably correct on the super-religious nature of the guy since he didn't know how else to deal with temptation but to eliminate it, I guess prayer wasn't helping.

I didn't address guns or no guns...you can carry on with someone else on that argument.

RE: Mass shooter targets spas.
Waiting periods is not a solution.

"What ifs" never are.


You ASSUME that the guy will calm down.

How do know he won' t get further agitated - and have more time to formulate a better plan - thus increasing his body count?

Answer - you don't - anymore than you know he will cool down.

Waiting periods are a baseless claim with NO evidence to their working.

Which is why Brian embraces it...

It SOUNDS good....

It is related to firearms like it or not, firearms are what he used, regardless of his motive or legal status to buy them.

But, I would agree that his dad being holy person, and being deeply indoctrinated, probably taught him that sex is evil. 

I would however argue why target Asian women and the place they work if you were not targeting them? I think he had a leaning for Asian women but couldn't take rejection from women in general. 

And yea, prayer was not working which was why he turned to firearms.

You're right of course.

It' s just as likely his target was sex workers - and for whatever reason his target area had a high asian population.

Maybe it's mostly Asian women that work there.  

Once again, I am not arguing about guns with you....full fucking stop.

This was breaking news that started out being presented as a hate crime.  Now, as with most breaking news, more information has been revealed and it may not have been a hate crime.  Get a fucking grip you wing nut.

RE: Mass shooter targets spas.
Wouldn' t it just be a hate crime against sex workers rather than Asians? Or is that not covered by statute?

I am arguing guns because that is what he used. 

I am a "wing nut"?

How? I am crazy for wanting less firearm violence and not more? Is it crazy to look at our allies like Australia and New Zealand and Japan and ask "Why can't we reduce our firearm violence to their levels"? That makes me crazy how?

You are focused on motive, and unfortunately far to much of media, even liberal media focuses on that. It isn't that it isn't important from a case by case basis, it is. But the long term picture has always been access, regardless of motive. 

If a person blows their partner's brains out over jealousy, it still remains they had access to a firearm. If a person blows their partner's brains out to avoid a divorce and paying alimony, it is still an access issue. If a person blows their neighbor's brains out over drugs, it is still an access issue. If a person blows their partner's brains out to get life insurance, it is still an access issue. If a person blows their bosses brains out because they got fired, it is still an access issue. If a person blows someone's brains out because they cant get a woman, it is still an access issue. If a person blows someone's brains out because they don't like their skin color, or religion, again, it is an access issue.

"Motive" only speaks about intent, it does not address access.

I believe you need to be a protected class for it to be a hate crime.

How exactly are you going to stop someone from having access to a gun and continue to sell them?
Someone COULD buy a gun and not use it illegally for 30 or 40 YEARS. . 
I know - your crystal ball - right?
