Hey i've tried that here in Norway. It's not bad.

Virginia Beach is 200 miles from NRA headquarters. I wonder why no one has shot up NRA headquarters...oh yeah, the NRA building is a gun-free zone, just like all their rallies.
I did some research on this, and it appears that the NRA headquarters do in fact permit people to carry loaded guns inside their headquarters as long as it's holstered.
Not that it really matters, the NRA won't be seeing any spree shooters anytime soon. Shooters typically aim for places with many unarmed victims such as schools, concerts, or in this case; a workplace. Places with armed people that can defend themselves are low priority targets. That's why police stations, gun shops, high security locations rarely get attacked by these people. Organized groups may attempt it, but not the angry lonely men that want to take with them as many people as possible.
I'm not in any way trying to defend the NRA here, i think gun violence and those who advocate irresponsible gun ownership is terrible. But i don't want to see the spreading of false facts either.

Why does the US have so much against Iran while selling weapons and sucking up to Saudi Arabia, one of the most vile countries in the world? SA is a dictatorship, spreader of Wahabism, military aggressor, one of the worst violators of human rights in the world. Yet hawks in Washington push for war against a peaceful democratic country that has breached no contract, followed the rules. while ignoring all the bad SA does to gain access to that sweet sweet oil trade.

I’m not going to sully the actions of these heroes, but isn’t it sad how people in the US can only look up to these few people rather than the lawmakers who have failed them? What’s better? To stop the problem at it’s roots to prevent it from ever happening, or needing to sacrifice yourself to save others from lunatics with easy access to dangerous tools.

No doubt he will lose his job for causing train delays. The other mentioned behaviour is of course, of secondary importance.

Maybe if the Koreans would put away the silly demeaning apology cards and actually try to treat the emperor with mutual dignity and respect he would dare bring his family to visit South Korea.

Waste of total money and resources, sounds like they thought of the idea after watching a B grade Hollywood action film.
But they can just launch a cyber nuke to fry the cyber attacker's computers right?

Damn... So many casualties to bring just three perpetrators to justice. Apparently many of them escaped as well. The community alerted the authorities about the suspicious people renting the house, yet they face the brunt of the fighting. Incredibly sad.

"We need to... return to a state where international law, not the law of the strongest, determines the situation in the world," Putin said.
Look who’s talking.

You can’t really "defeat" extremism. Only limit it. Most attacks can be stopped by a vigilant police force and people, but some will slip through the cracks no matter what precautions is done. I hope prince William understands this.

I have no problem with this. Smoking is banned in my university. i wouldn’t have minded it being banned in Japan too. I was on exchange in Kwansei Gakuin university and there were smokers all huddled in a specific outdoor corridor of the campus i had to pass through all the time. Had to hold my breath. Really annoying.

Can you give some examples of CNN manipulation of facts? Because as an outsider it appears to me that both parties in American politics blame each other for being biased, cry foul, yet the truth doesn’t really matter.

Kind of hypocritical by the Chinese government no? There are paid employees posing as "evil Japanese soldiers" on museum sites in China, is it not also an fact that one could buy rape-themed porn in the Nanking massacre museum? That’s not even a joke! look it up!
The CCP tries to seem concerned about the feelings of the Chinese people, but it is the most morally corrupt and reprehensible regime you could imagine.

My guess for republican reactions=
1: Stricter gun control would do nothing! / More guns would have solved this.
2: Inb4 gun control liberals mix politics into this horrific incident. lmao!

Both China and the USA seem more concerned with the development of "buffer zones" than actual Korean reunification... If the US and China assemble troops it would be foolish to imagine they did so out from the kindness of their hearts. Sad situation for the people of both Korea's. They have always been the little country wedged between superpowers. Even today.

I bet even most North Koreans thinks the statements of the NK news agency are hypocritical.

I agree with the comments here... Wouldn't these headlines explaining anti-missile failure just encourage North Korea to be more aggressive and continue missile tests? How about instead having headlines explaining how THAAD super technology can reprogram North Korean rockets into crashing directly on Pyongyang. That would surely make great fatty more hesitant to aggravate...

Please ban the tobacco filth. When i went to small restaurants in Tokyo i was appalled by the disgusting clouds of smoke polluting the air. Why is it legal at all even outside? It's hard for me with an allergy to hold my breath whenever i see someone holding a cigarrete, it's either that or an allergic reaction and sinus infection that lasts the entire day.

Imagine this demand for compensation happened in Europe instead of Asia. I find it silly to imagine holocaust victims demanding money from Angela Merkel's government for Hitlers wartime atrocities. Why should a democratic Germany compensate for something their (dead) great-grandfathers did? You might as well claim compensation and a official apology from the kaiser of Imperial Germany for stepping on a WW1 landmine in 2017.

Can you please chill out with the atomic war escalation USA? Don't encourage the mad man in Pyongyang. I would like not to die of nuclear fallout today.

It would be lovely to buy European imports that aren't severly overpriced while in Japan. Let's hope the trade goes well and is lucrative for both parties.

"all female employees were ordered to draw straws with a phrase on each. The phrases included "movie date with executive" and "handmade present" for the person connected to the fund."
WTF? unvoluntary distribution of "prices" like going on dates without specification if it's compulsory? Events like this belong to college bachelorette parties and NOT professional businesses. What were they thinking? COOL Japan's executives are behaving in a very uncool manner.

Jesus christ. Stop calling it "Islamophobia." It's an act of terrorism. If they intend to keep calling it that they might as well start calling the other terrorist attacks "an act of Westophobia." We should not differentiate these attacks. They are all TERROR attacks against free people.

I'm from Norway and i think it's kinda weird that some people on this comment section associate our WW2 history with whaling... what does that have to do with this issue? Personally i have never eaten whale meat or even seen it as being all that popular for that matter. I'm guessing it's used for specific luxurious restaurants and/or industrial purposes.

heralding a "new chapter of American greatness" This is starting to sound more like North Korean rhetoric unlike Obama's position of a rational debate and cool-headed politics.
