You keep trying to derail the thread. And it's rather trollish.

If you think this rich kid got his gun on his own, in California, come on man. Just think about that.
He's loaded.

Not hard to find a gun if you have the money.

Not trolling, it's a legitimate and relevant issue here. The fact this guy was able to get hold of a gun is a real problem.

Yes, he could have ran people over, but that's a lot harder to target individual attractive girls with.

If he used a knife, I doubt there would be as many people dead.

A bomb wouldn't have worked because it is too indiscriminate.

The gun was the perfect weapon for what he was trying to do; it allows safe distance while still having highly accurate killing power.

I think the core of the gun argument can be summed up by the following:
the mentally unstable are already not supposed to have access to guns, IF they go through the normal process of going to a gun dealer. But, if he was being treated, and had not been put into the system as someone with mental issues that would prevent him from having a weapon, he would never show up on background check as having mental issues that would prevent him from acquiring the gun. This is compounded by the probability that his parents are were having him treated but not committed because it would look bad on them socially, professionally, etc. Hence, he would not have been denied a gun anyway, even though he was "under treatment".

So, Soup is right. The media WILL ultimately bring it back to the gun. CA WILL blame the gun. The media will once again, not make the obvious connection between anti-depressants and violence (especially outbursts of mass violence) and we will be extolled the virtues of taking all guns off the streets, and explained to that people like the shooter need better medical care and more "drugs"

Hung, ny digital is suggesting that he bought off the street.

I don't care how he got it, he shouldn't have had one.

RE: Elliot Rodgers shoots up California campus because he can't get laid
The NY Times take on this event seems to be mostly factual so far. They haven't given any commentary: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/25/us/cal...ml?hp&_r=0

There's a quote in the article that makes me think some recent event may have possibly triggered this:

Quote:“On the day of retribution, I am going to enter the hottest sorority house of U.C.S.B., and I will slaughter every single spoiled, stuck-up blonde slut I see inside there. All those girls I’ve desired so much,” he said. “I’ll take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you. You will finally see that I am in truth the superior one, the true alpha male.”

We all know how ridiculously young American women act towards guys who they think are "creepers." Maybe one or a group of them pushed him over the edge, but that question will never even get asked. I wonder if there will be any investigation into a specific, proximate cause of this incident. On the other hand, the guy could've just been so nuts that it was only a matter of time. We'll just have to wait and hope media finger pointing stays at a minimal level, because we know they're going to talk about this for a long time.

The rational male has a post about this sort of shooting stuff from 2012

http://therationalmale.com/2012/10/22/ca...nt-page-2/

There's also a few other posts on the site about killing the beta and how game saves lives. This makes me a little nervous about meet ups now. I had no idea about the puahate site. Wtf

RE: Elliot Rodgers shoots up California campus because he can't get laid
It's a lot harder to run girls over in a sorority house, or to get them to all cross the street in a group while you are waiting for them in your BMW.

Also bullets are a lot faster than cars, and can kill from greater distance.

I don't disagree with you, but passing laws against drugs or guns tends to create black markets. Selling cocaine is not legal, but cocaine is still being sold.

I don't see how one can evaluate a potential gun buyer's mental health. Perhaps one day the gun shop will ask the NSA for a background check on the prospective client, and the NSA will use supercomputers to analyze the prospective client's emails, YouTube comments, Facebook posts, and determine whether the client is sane or not. If the NSA had a file on every person and every email, YouTube comment, or Facebook post were immediately added to the file, then the background check would take less than 1 second.

If spam-detection could be automated using machine learning, maybe background checks will also be automated one day.

They all just get lumped into one misogynistic mess in their minds. To make matters worse members of PUAHate are often simultaneously members of more legit sites - either out of some form of obsession or to troll. In particular

PUAHATE or MANBOOBS are in fact ANTI-MANOSPHERE SITES. I certainly hope that puahate.com stays down, since it is mainly a breeding ground for incel-fucktards.

I bet a few girls told him that he only needs to be himself, be nice, be a gentleman, have a nice car, looks etc. - only to realize that it mattered shit. Instead of learning from the PUA-community he chose to listen to PUAhaters and some of the anti-female comments of the MGTOWs who themselves are often refusing to accept Game or even basic concepts like Alpha/Beta. I think that problem will become way worse, since hypergamy and promiscuity will only increase and most men will be left in the sexual wasteland.

You are coming from the same mentality as his, thinking that just because of what he has, money, nice car, looks, women should be forming a line just for the chance of being with him.

Dude thought that he deserved women, he didnt actually did anything to get them.

RE: Elliot Rodgers shoots up California campus because he can't get laid
Fuck this piece of garbage for doing this. I don't go to UCSB, but a good amount of my friends go there, and I would party at IV almost every weekend. Hopefully no one I know was in the crossfire. All of my good friends are fine, but seven people is a fucking massacre. At first I just thought that there were some injuries, but this is a full-on slaughter. It's a shame that this guy offed himself instead of getting captured. The prison rape he'd experience wouldn't bring the dead back to life, but it would make me and a lot of other students feel a whole lot better.

I'd piss on this dude's corpse. People aren't going to go into IV anymore. This quarter alone something like twelve people have died. Fuck the people who are turning my school into a charnel house, fuck every rapist and murderer who have made Isla Vista unsafe for everyone.

Boy is rich, connected, above average in looks, lives in SoCal and in a way knows about game,

It's like the gods are force-feeding him pussy and he's spitting it out as if it was British food.

I do not sympathize.

This generation needs a serious dose of hardship and a reality check.

Life isn't fucking fair. So what?

This is exactly why I've harped on about privilege creating low-resilient, narcissistic personalities, who are meaningfully-and-genuinely traumatised by the tiniest things, to the extent they have to invent hardships for themselves to overcome.

Basically, the exact background experienced by the majority of children who are privileged enough to attend university.

A generation of neurotics creating new victim classes and offences to explain the ways that they are not losers, but heroes, and could have achieved anything, but for 'X' holding them back.

Current university thought is just a way of normalising mental illness, getting cash out of the parents of entitled, damaged monsters to convince their little snowflakes that they're healthy, and the problem is everyone else. Which results in: everything is 'rape'. My gender is 'Xir'. Fat is beautiful. White people have privilege from birth. I'm actually a dragon. I have headmates.

So, yeah, this problem isn't just a beta male thing.

The video of this toxic wanker watching couples and melodramatically-talking about his loneliness? He's just a Jezebel writer bitching about how happy everyone is on thanksgiving or Christmas, except for her. He's Lindy West ranting about people daring to look disgusted or pitiful when they have to interact with her, and that everyone else has the problem as should accept her beauty.

The combination of excessive privilege, entitlement, narcissism, and normalised deviancy via education created the exact same neurosis in this guy as the Jezebel crew, or your average feminist. The only difference is that this cowardly fuckwit has a gun.

Be suspicious of anyone who has never really experienced hardship in their life. They're dangerous. This is why I don't waste time debating them or interacting with them in any meaningful way. Focus on your life and your goals.

First of all, not sure when you started posting again AB but welcome back.

Second, I was thinking about this kid all morning in the gym today. I was thinking how he WAS seeing therapists and there were people in his life that knew he was "off" to put it mildly.

I'm would bet money that his "therapy" entailed hours upon hours of him sitting with any number of shrinks and him telling them exactly what we hear in the videos. About his loneliness, his unfulfilled sexual and relationship needs, his isolation. None of these characteristics qualify as a bonafide disorder or disease. It's called being a maladjusted, awkward, introvert, nerd, geek, creeper, etc. There's not a single known therapy that can cure that, except game.

This kid, being the son of a prominent Hollywood figure, has most likely had nothing but support from the day he was born. But what good is that? What good is it to hear, "Oh Elliott, one day you'll find the one. Just be who you are and that way you know she'll love you for the right reasons." How many therapists consolled him and made every effort to make him feel good about himself? That right there is the problem; it's become a socially accepted privilege to always feel good about oneself.

The constant reassurance and constant therapy and, mostly likely, constant medication never even touched the root of the problem. He's miserable because he's fucking awkward! The kid doesn't need a therapist, he needs boot camp. He doesn't need medication, he needs to take a few shots and have a sloppy makeout session with some drunk slut.

I imagine his social isolation goes far back, so he'd have nothing to build on. He needed a very deep, very elementary level of game that taught him the basics.

I think we'll see the greatest breakdown and understanding of this kid coming from the RVF sidelines, simply because I'm sure there are many of us that can relate on some level to this kid. I'm sure there are quite a few reformed computer nerds and WoW nerds in our midst. Personally I spent my junior year in high school reading by myself in the school library during lunch break. I was as big of a loser as they come. We're not a group of jocks and chest-beating alphas (not all of us anyway); I'd say many of were something like this kid at some point. And then you go from being like that, to the point where you can walk into a bar and have a ONS with a complete stranger....that's why you'll have so many espousing the virtues of game, because it works.

If you take someone that's miserable and tell them that there's nothing wrong with them, they have 2 options:

1) believe that there's nothing wrong with them and it's the WORLD that is fucked up, or
2) not listen to the voice of reassurance, and by some stroke of luck, realize that to change one's results requires an uncomfortable and sometimes painful change.

One last thing:

[Image: article-2638049-1E2AA4CB00000578-888_634x565.jpg]

On top of his isolation, it's obvious that he was VERY sexually confused. It's too bad no-one with an ounce of sense could reach out to him and help him lead an authentic, fulfilling life. What a waste.

He would just have to wait for a street festival and run them over.

Or easily make some sort of pipe bomb.

There are many ways to kill people that don't involve a gun. More govt. is NOT the answer. Taking away our rights and freedoms to try to prevent this not only will not work, it will end up causing more violence.

Look at places where there are very strict gun bans...

DC
Chicago
Mexico

On and on. You ban guns, then the only people that will get them are the people who have evil intentions with them.

You know I was actually thinking about this video. I have posted it a few times in the past.

Rodgers couldn't have chosen a worse place to go. Santa Barbara is simply not made for quiet, serious, introspective types that think a lot. It just isn't. For someone like that, the fratboy/sorority culture is an anathema. They don't belong in the environment. I've been to a few parties in Isla Vista back in the day myself. Guys that excel there are super extroverted, crazy, non-intellectual, rambling yet funny, living in the moment, life of the party types. There's really no room there for guys like Rodgers. He never belonged in Santa Barbara in the first place. A dude like him should've gone to teach English in China for a few years. Would've been the best thing he could do.

And maybe he would actually make some male friends.

Part of this guys problem is he had no male friends. I'm starting to think this is more common these days with social media and all.

If he had real life friends instead of guys on the inter webs, they could have helped him through his frustration (talking to your guy friends about sexual frustration would be worth more than all talk therapy his rich father could afford).

When I was 22, if we had a friend like this in our social circle we'd probably take him to a strip club or all pitch in to get him a hooker.

Family at least tried to get him serious help after the last video was posted. Police didn't do anything though. This totally could have been prevented.

Quote:Shifman said the family called police several weeks ago after being alarmed by YouTube videos "regarding suicide and the killing of people."

Police interviewed Elliot Rodger and found him to be a "perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human," he added. Police did not find a history of guns, but did say Rodger "didn't have a lot of friends," had trouble making friends and didn't have any girlfriends.

I have been to parties in IV many, many times, and I wholeheartedly agree.

Yet, being in Santa Barbara was not the worst. Being in IV was (I assume he lived there). He was 22 so he could have decided to live in downtown Santa Barbara, closer to SBCC and the nightclubs. He could have chosen to live in Goleta, preferably sharing an apartment with some STEM grad students. UCSB is actually excellent in physics, and there are quite a few introverted and intellectual high-IQ aspies in the physics department (and in the engineering departments, too). He should have spent his time with those people, instead of wasting his time worrying about the sorority sluts who rejected him. The question is: was he actually smart and intellectually curious enough to be accepted by those people, or was he not only awkward but also not very intelligent?

I wonder if he had a roommate. Or if he shared an apartment with other students. If so, expect to find a "I was Elliot Rodgers's roommate AMA" on Reddit in the near future.

To lighten up the mood, let's remember IV on a good day:




Wow, I am starting to understand what happened. Women in my country are models of decency and intelligence compared to THAT.

Almost all of them want college graduates of some type--even if you majored in underwater basketweaving or hair braiding.
