    how to stop mass shootings

    Someone on facebook came up with this idea:
    I have it figured out, so simple!
    Outlaw black clothing!
    That's the common denominator in all the mass shootings
    And I said it's even simpler than that - just outlaw clothing.
    All mass murderers wore clothing, right?

    Everyone relax, no one is trying to take the black clothing you already have, we just want to make it harder for people who shouldn't have it to get their hands on it.

    What if all black clothing had serial numbers and were registered?

    Oh, and have black-cloying-free zones, like schools.

    What are you all going to do about black dye that could be used to turn white clothing in to black.

    Home made black clothing with out serial numbers.

    There is not enough industrial-strength brain-bleach in the world to erase those images!! Shame on you, Grapeshot!!

    Maybe we should have a waiting period on buying black clothing and a limit on how many articles of black clothing a person can buy per month. And we haven't even considered the trouble we will have with the larger high capacity "black" handbags and other exccessories people will buy to turn their black wardrobe into these so called "assult" outfits.

    No offense...I think your idea will create/promote more mass murders. There are a lot of people I know that NEED to have clothing....without clothing, holy cow.....eliminating those images would paramount!!

    Background checks on all hoodies and pants that display buttocks (because they cannot be pulled up) should be implemented ASAP!! Call your legislators PRONTO!!!

    They are missing the main element of what makes something a "mass shooting" .......people, they shouldn't be allowed to peaceably assemble.

    It's not all the black clothing. Don't go overboard.

    But we must do some common sense bans such as when a collar and expandable pockets are on the same black garment, or if instead of a normal zipper, the pants employ much more quiet buttons, as found on military fatigues. There is no legitimate sporting purpose in those combinations.

    re: going to Wally World
    I avoid it as much as possible, which amounts to making maybe 1 trip a year for something that's on an excessively good sale. (Or sometimes I'll accompany a friend just to be friendly, but I keep my collar turned up & hat & sunglasses on.)

    But unpeaceable assembling would be OK? Or even dissembling?

    BTW, I love that people here have a sense of humor & can take off & run with something like this.

    I sometimes wear black socks, but it's okay: I have my CWP (Concealed Wear Permit), but most days I wear my Tivas, which are Black *and* Nylon, so they count as tacti (tacky?)-cool.

    Here are some facts*

    2% of all murders are committed utilizing black clothing.
    98% of all murders wearing black clothing have multiple black garments on at the time of the murders.
    100% of all black-garment wearing shooters obtained garments without a background check.
    100% of all black-garment wearing shooters, at the time of the shooting, were able to wear black clothing, despite repeated requests from parents (mothers in particular) to wear "something nice."

    Obviously this serious situation needs attention. Therefore, OA will be establishing, for the security of our nation, a new department to be overseen by the Department of Homeland Security- with oversight from the Attorney General's office- the world's first ever fashion police. The United States Required Clothing Uniform Necessity Team will be led by Tim Gunn, with Under Secretary Heidi Klum. Other positions will be filled when the filming is finished for the upcoming season of "What Not To Wear." USRCUNT has the explicit power and authority to detain you for fashion infractions. They will have the authority to search closets, confiscate clothing, and treat any person wearing socks with sandals as a serious violator.


    *facts are made up.

    If you wear socks with sandals, I'm scared of you, because obviously you have no concept of right and wrong.
