    Looks like they really wanted to fn win, glad this was prevented. I'd like to go up to them and say "You know what sounds you'd make if I pushed you in a lake? Da-Douche!"

    pikachu made them do it

    Do whatever you like, you are totally right this is not my country. But I'm pretty sure that giving access that easily to tools that were made to kill other people with great ease and efficiency isn't the best way to protect a country. You're talking about patriotism, but do you really think that these two guys are a bit of patriots? Do you really think that killing your own people is something patriotic? Heck, they're even way too young to know what is patriotism. You got to earn the right to have, buy or use a gun. This isn't something you can give to anyone because or freedom or misplaced patriotism. And you should not talk lightly about your history, your ancestors fought for your freedom and that's what they are doing with it : killing other Americans... Listen, I'm from a country where military service is mandatory, and men have to keep their weapon at home (it's a SIG-550,feel free to check). So I have my assault rifle at home. But to prevent this kind of situation, ammo is not provided, the AR is registered to your name and ID number, and buying ammo in not permitted without a permit. In my eyes, that's far more secure than giving weapons to everyone... But it's just my opinion, and again you're right, I have absolutely no rights to complain and judge as an outsider. But you know sometimes, you have to be outside to have a better and unbiased look on the situation.

    Its not a tool which primary function is used to "kill people" Its used to Defend People and Hunt.

    Well, that is debatable. If we are talking about a hunting rifle, yes. The ammo and specifications of the weapon makes it suitable for hunt. I agree, in this case it would be like I was saying that we shouldn't sell kitchen knives because you can kill people with it :D . But the guns they wanted to use are not really for defense, at least not in this context (in a war zone maybe, but clearly not in this place and time). And using a shotgun and an AR-15 to hunt would be tge equivalent of using grenades to fish : a tiny bit extreme :D

    And to use the knife analogy again, you don't give access to dangerous goods like that to people that hasn't the necessary knowledge and stability to use it. It would be like selling a kitchen knife (yes, I love kitchen knives :D) to a 6 years old. Maybe it's not a weapon, but the combination can be dangerous for everybody.

    Your country was born as a big "fuck you" to Britain. Guns were part of your ancestors, not you. You got police and trained military to cover your ass in case of invasion. Invasion that will never happen because South America doesn't even dare to piss off the UN. And if it does, I'd rather have some trained professional saving my ass than some lunatic that thinks he's God if he had a gun.

    That doesn't mean that guns should be suddenly outlawed - it's their distribution that should be more restrictive and more selective.

    There is nothing intrinsically wrong with a gun - it's a tool. Guns don't kill people - people use guns to kill other people. A gun is not responsible for someone's poor life choices or unsteady mental state. You can kill with many tools, just about anything, in fact. The problems arise when people who do not have the mental fortitude and training to use guns responsibly get access to them.

    A gun license should be a relatively difficult thing to obtain and something that requires periodical mental and physical checks in order to keep, not something you either don't have to own or can just request and get on the spot. A speeding car is a massive steel bullet too, it can be as destructive as a gun, if not more, and that's why a driving license is required to operate one - the same applies, or should apply, to any form of a firearm.

    The text of the 2nd ammendment is very clear: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." - notice the word regulated. The 2nd ammendment doesn't give the indispensible right for nutjobs to bear arms - it's supposed to be well regulated, and that implies separating the chaff from the grain.

    Where Officer Jenny f*cks up, Nurse Joy steps in, so all things considered, this would be a win-win either way. ;O;

    I've never said that guns should be outlawed, but IMO they aren't treated as they should in the USA. I agree it should be harder to own a gun, especially because there isn't any of the issues going on today than there were when the Amendments were made.

    and the Amendments were made in 1791 when a gun was usually something like a musket, nothing like today's fully automatic weapons that can fire hundreds of rounds in seconds.

    I was actually at Worlds and it was crazy the amount of security they added (drug dogs and all). It actually made getting in take much longer than normal, so they had to delay and move a lot of matches. It surprised me to find out there was a legitimate threat (I bet my friend that some sour player who didn't get invited called in a fake threat).

    What jackasses! I'm glad they were stupid enough to post their intentions on social media, cause they got themselves busted in doing so and prevented anyone from getting hurt.

    As a New Englander myself, I would like to see these scumbags charged with conspiracy to commit domestic terrorism....

    I'm really glad they caught this before it happened! These tournaments are frequented by young kids, man, what the hell? Who is so twisted in the head to try and commit mass murder on this scale?
