#2047225 Guns and Homicide

Posted by ladypanther on 15 December 2012 - 03:09 PM

If you have ANY history of mental illness you no getta a gun. Easier to eliminate that common denominator than all guns.

Difficult to regulate. When I worked for mental health, we had a client who had severe paranoid schizophrenia, who checked "No" on the mental illness question of the gun application and bought an assault rifle. We found out about it when he tried to buy the ammo (at Roses)...did not have enough money so laid it away. The Roses employee had concerns about him so called our emergency line. His illness was not stabilized. He believed he was in Vietnam and that the Vietnamese were trying to kill him and that he had t defend himself. (He had never been in the military) He lived in a neighborhood with lots of children. You can imagine what we feared. I finally convinced local law enforcement that this was a potentially dangerous situation and they called the ATF who called me. Those guys were awesome. They came up from Charlotte within hours and took him in custody. He went to a federal psychiatric facility. That Roses employee at the lay away desk may very well have saved several lives.

Don't understand why assault rifles, or semi automatic weapons are legal to buy. I think it is time that we outlawed weapons of mass destruction in the US.

Wow LP. Didn't think you had it in you.

Not sure what you meant...and if you agree with me or disagree.

Yes, I have always had it in me. I am very passionate about victims. Children are off the charts for me.

No one can convince me that those soulless morons who yell the right to own automatic/assault weapons trumps a child's right not to be killed....or anyone's right for that matter.

What the hell does anyone need an assault weapon for?

I have not read any posts in this thread. I am sure some will make me even more angry.

This horrific event is so incredibly sad...but I feel way to angry to cry yet. As I said in another post, I understand 9/11 more than I understand this.

​I blame the NRA. I blame the morons who yell about the 2nd amendment. That was written in different times, when "arms" were necessary for reasons that do not exist today. Slavery was legal then, women could not vote. Weapons have changed....to defend yourself from an enemy attack...one needs million dollar weapons. The stuff the NRA defends as a right is not only absurd....it is immoral.

It is the greed of those making money off these weapons that have killed our children today. (They wave the flag to get the support of the simple minded...to go along with the support of the criminals.)

Anyone in the category above, the blood of these children is on your hands and your soul. You oppose gun control....you helped kill them, along with many others every day.

I am mad. Very mad. I cannot even imagine how the parents of the deceased children feel. There cannot be anything close to this kind of pain.

We as a country have to do something to change this. We are not yet a civilized society.

My heart to those families who lost a loved one today. My heart also goes out to all the children in that school. Their lives have been forever changed.

The freedom of speech allowed here has always been one of this places greatest strengths, unfortunately recently it's also become its greatest weakness.

Good on ya for reining it in.

So, Rivera's big moves are with special teams. Benches Adams, fire the ST coach, and now the kicker.

Why didn't he fire the guy who approved that fake punt call? Oh.......

One of the worst calls I have seen in the NFL.

#2008845 Have you ever Found Money that you didn't know you had?

Posted by ladypanther on 19 November 2012 - 08:13 PM

I had a dear elderly couple I was helping. They both had to go to a nursing home. The Mrs had dementia. When I went to their house to look for something they needed....I found $12,000 and some odd bills that the Mrs had hidden, probably years ago and did not remember. Thankfully they banked where I did....so the teller did not call the police when I showed up with the money, mostly in $20's, to deposit in their account.

So sorry about your dog. So tough to lose a good friend....and dogs are the best.

This just in...

Hardcore conservatives are bat poo crazy.

Sadly, true. And very well spoken.

Texas is only turning into a blue state because of the influx of foreigners.

Except for Native Americans....everyone here is the result of an influx of foreigners.

How cool is it that you'll be mentioned in the WSJ! Sweet!

The mention is very nice.

I get the WSJ and will be looking for your mention.

Is there some sort of pictorial?

They did not ask for a pic. I asked for the date of mention....will pass along if I get it.

Was just notified by the Wall Street Journal that I was one of several winners of their election contest. I correctly predicted the presidential election outcome in every state. Bad news is, there is no prize for winning. I do get a mention in WSJ.

I only seem to win things with no prizes.

Please do not turn this in to a Tinderbox thread. :)

#1994447 Sadly, where I am with this team and coaching

Posted by ladypanther on 11 November 2012 - 06:44 PM

I was an early and sometime unpopular unfan of Foxy. By the way, I think his recent success is by the calls of Elway. Likely Peyton has more say than he does.

On to this team.

I again think this team is undercoached. There is a lot of talent on this team. Come on, DWill, JStew, and add Tolbert....we should be the bad ass running team of the NFL. Add Cam and Smitty to the mix....we should be The offense.

Just take the most recent game....we had success with the screen and going to the TE. So what did the offense do after that? Not what had worked. A good HC would have directed Chud to better plays. Sadly, Chud is not a good OC. And sadly, he did not have the right direction from his HC.

I very much need my job....so it is not a frivolous thing that I think someone deserves to lose a job.

A lot of money by fans...not to mention, a lot of heart has gone in to this team. We deserve better. So do some of our awesome players.

JR has already fired his friend Hurney. Given the results so far...seems like it will be a coaching clean house.

Wish this group had worked. I am sure JR did.

#1987067 #4000 The Panthers and Charlotte

Posted by ladypanther on 07 November 2012 - 09:44 PM

When I asked for suggestions for post # 4000, one of the suggestions was that I talk about the Panthers staying in Charlotte (as opposed to moving to LA). So, here goes:

First, why are the Panthers in Charlotte? Mr. Richardson had a dream, which in reality seemed impossible. His dream was not about having a team that would make the most money. It was about pride in where he called home. It was about the people and places that had helped him become successful. It was about giving back. It was about telling the world about who we are and that we matter. It was about deserving the best. It was about being tired of being overlooked and discounted on the big stage. This was personal. It was a mission.

So, against all odds, the Carolina Panthers had life. Mr. Richardson promised to bring a Superbowl win to the Carolinas. While, he did not meet the time frame he wanted, it seems ludicrous to think that his goal has changed.

There has been some excitement but also much frustration with overall results. People have been trusted with the dream that proved unworthy. Still, this is not about failures, it is about the goal.

The goal is not to be in the biggest television market. It is not to be the franchise to make the most money. It is about bringing a championship to the Carolinas….for all the world to see……and for us to have a team to be proud of.

So, those who think Mr. Richardson will move this team do not understand why the Panthers are here in the first place.

I also think he has a plan that includes his dream living on beyond when he cannot.

We fans are often so impatient. Our happiness with the team often depends on the W-L record. But, if you are truly honest, we should be thankful every day that Mr. Richardson had a dream which included us.
