I'm guessing the school had too many doors and this kid was on Ritalin.   Clear recipe for disaster.

It's almost like the rest of the developed world has this problem figured out, and yet we maintain the status quo to satisfy profits for a certain industry.

Gee....ya think?

Who funds the NRA?  Who puts out the over the top propaganda about how the government is going to take all our guns away?  Who benefits and profits from people going and buying guns because they are scare the government is going to take them away?

 

This is quite possibly the most amazing marketing ploy in the modern era.

i think the official position is that the best way to make the gun issue go away is to totally ignore it.  so please....no more talking about americans being killed by guns.  thank you.

Some of the survivors of this mass shooting were also survivors of the las vegas mass shooting. Can you imagine the trauma being apart of one mass shooting and then a little over a year later being in that situation again?

Talk about how armed guards everywhere (as our dear leader stated for a synagogue or school) would prevent tragedies like this, highway patrolman was killed trying to stop the shooter. 

 

 

It's always been a stupid idea. Some of those armed guards could also turn out to be a mass shooter. After all, it's kind of hard to figure out who they are before they act.

He picked a fight with another CNN reporter today and that has dominated headlines.

I got you, fam.

 

"If we had armed every toddler within a one mile radius of this shooting, this wouldn't have happened. One of them would've been riding his Big Wheel down the street, strapped, ready to take action." - Probably Trump

if i may ask...what has the NRA or Trump or any republican done to try to stop this? anything at all?   1 law proposed to make it tougher for these nuts?    ok....we can't take away anything gun related...but we always hear how we need tougher laws to stop the crazies....but no laws are ever proposed by anyone other than the damned libs...and trump took away the 1 law that obama passed that made it easier for agencies to communicate about mentally unstable people.  the evil libs passed 1 gun law...and were demonized for trying to keep guns out of the hands of the lunatics who do this s#!t.   in the 1920 when the gangster wars were raging the NRA stepped in and helped write legislation to ban machine guns and cut the body count......but now we can't even pass laws designed to keep guns away from deranged MF's without the NRA bringing lawsuits up to stop said laws.

Well, he did repeal legislation Obama put in place that makes it harder for people with mental illnesses to get guns.  So, there's that.

 

It's somewhat like healthcare.  They oppose everything, repeal anything on the books..... promise something.....then.......chirp chirp chirp.........

 

But....now is not the time to talk about it.  It's time for thoughts and prayers.

I'm changing my tune, yet again, on the "eyeroll" emoji.  

 

I've decided only lazy people use it.  And if a person is too lazy to type at least one sentence, I don't really care for their input.

 

Que the lazy people in 3.....2......1.........

When I use it, it's usually because I don't think the person is worth the effort. Although sometimes I eyeroll AND reply.

I just use it to be passive aggressive, it's a stupid emoji, frankly all of them are.  Might as well just stick a -1 in there, because that's the use it gets.

 

On the other hand it allows me to be dismissive without the risk of getting myself banned so its got that going for it.  Although I've only ever used it on two posters and I am sure everyone can figure out who, no wait 3, redux got there with his welfare queen stuff the other day because I didn't feel like explaining how overextending yourself with credit works or why viewing the "jones's" from the outside doesn't mean that they are in a good or sustainable financial situation.

Speaking as a psychologist. It is not Mental Illness that leads people to violence. There are very very few behavioral patterns associated with increased violence, namely, they are a history of violence. Most individuals diagnosed with mental health issues are significantly more likely to be victims of violent crime than to perpetrate.

only a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun

 

oops

 

 

 

If only this good guy with a gun had taken the time to buy a NRA-sponsored 'Good Guy' shirt and put it on, he'd still be alive today.* 

 

I mean, how else are the police to determine who is the good guy and who is the bad guy if we don't start enabling the good and bad guys from identifying themselves? :dunno

 

 

 

*Please note that "Good guy" shirts are not designed to work with any ethnicity other than Caucasian, so as to prevent Police Officers from being confused.

I watched couple NFL games this weekend where before the national anthem they read a dedication to the shooting victims of the mass shootings over the last week.  They did this usually while showing black football players standing ready for the anthem.

 

The thought that went through my head was that there is this big of a dedication for the victims of mass shootings.....but.....God forbid, those same football players do some type of demonstration bringing attention to people from black communities being murdered by police officers.
