Gun free---and the shooter was austistic (high probably of pedophilia) which he had no outlet for----frustrated, he likely chose to kill the objects of his affection. I am sorry, but they really should be posting the facts about autism and Incel males.You yanks have a weird attitude to government.Yes it appears gun confiscation and eliminating the people’s right to self defense is the natural progression of a tyrannical government and global ultra rich elite.Again I'm shocked by your passive acceptance that change is not possible but one thing I don't understand is why the victim's families haven't sued the gun manufacturers.I agree there is no answer. As a liberal I’m inclined to shout about gun control but in the end most of these shooters will find a gun.It can’t be stopped , it’s impossibleI'm shocked!Oh this is terrible...we need to take a look at guns. This pandemic has caused so much mental stress on people, goodness.
No not with the fact there has been another mass shooting but with people on this thread's reaction to it.
It's almost like total acceptance that this is and always will be the norm - like someone announced bread gone up a dollar.
We have of course the usual looney suggesting the answer is that everybody should walk around like Rambo
with at least an automatic rifle, handgun, and several belts of ammo thrown over each shoulder, schoolkids and Nunns included.
When the fuck are you going to take active measures to stop it?
I think we’ll need to go the way of El Salvador which means armedguards at every Wendy’s, school, and work place in America. Jobs jobs jobs I guess.
Provided you can get it on camera you yanks seem to sue for the slightest thing - if someone gives you a dirty look they are in court. America is known as the land of Lawsuits. So if the families had sued, the gun manufacturers would after all the victims over all the decades have surely gone bust by now. So why didn't they?
I listened to a podcast by Michael Moore last week over the Denver mass shooting.
I was surprised that 73% of Americans don't even own a gun. And a large majority want far-reaching gun control laws. Although the Democrats now have a majority in the Senate they still can't get reforms through because as Moore says Republicans use the old filibuster trick of talking until the Bill runs out of time. Moore suggests that everybody needs to phone their senator's office and complain. Senators will only do something if they think they are going to lose votes. So you need to do that and get every member of the family to do the same. Even phone other state senators and pretend you live there and get all the family and friends doing the same.
The Government you have just elected is an extension of the people - they are your representatives chosen and given authority by you to make laws and only govern on your behalf. The Government ARE the people and vice versa!
Why do you right-wingers always assume you will have to defend yourself against yourself? What sort of law do you think they are going to pass that would entitle you to take up arms against well... yourselves?
As for self defence, what s.d. did the little 6yo tots at Sandy Hook have?
These mass shootings are down now to an almost weekly occurrence and are exclusive to the US as no other developed country has this same particular problem.
Why do you think that is?
Sandy Hook was chosen because it was a gun free zone. The killer had attended the middle school and the highschool, as well as Sandy Hook, but they had armed police on site...so he chose the gun free zone school instead.
There are 52 weeks in the year...
there were 10 mass public shootings in 2019....
One in 2020...
Can you do the math..........does that come out to weekly in New Zealand?
Meanwhile...more people in America die falling off of ladders than die in mass public shootings.....
300 die in ladder falls.
less than 80 in mass public shootings.
Americans use their legal guns to stop rapes, robberies and murders, 1.1 million times a year, according to the Sainted Centers For Disease Control...
Can you tell which numbers are bigger?
