We have become so desensitized to this bullshit that no one even responds.

1 dead now I believe.
Cue the politicians and other community leaders saying how we need to stop these senseless tragedies and then proceeding to do absolutely fuck all.

If the little kids in Sandy Hook getting killed and almost 60 people getting killed in Vegas didnt change anything these latest ones will be forgotten quickly. The general public care at first then they move on with their lives and forget about it. The media talks about it for a few days then move on. Gun control is brought up but gun lovers, Trump , the NRA respond by saying its not the right time to talk about it. And Trump and the NRA are buddies so nothing will be done. And the shootings will happen again..

I thought for sure after Sandy Hook, something would be done. but, the NRA is 
too powerful a lobby..

At Trumps rally last night Trump and his supporters were joking and laughing about shooting immigrants. What does that say about the likelihood of changes being made.....

See, the problem is that the shooters weren't wearing MAGA hats and taking pot shots at immigrants and minorities. Instead, it was a transexual who hated Trump and Christians.

Cue distracted whistling from the media...

One friend described the pair as struggling with “mental health issues.” The friend wrote on Instagram that Devon “did not do what he did because he’s liberal or to make a statement. He did it due to internal struggles. They’re both struggling with mental health issues and this is a time for awareness. Alec did not do this because he’s trans, but had people supported him in the way that he needed and deserved, he would not have struggled so much that he got pushed over the edge.”

The next time liberals accuse conservatives of immediately protecting their agenda rather than mourning the victims, rest well knowing that liberals are just as good at it.

What can you really do to stop this? What is the magic pill?

I do not think there is one.

It is more of a social problem.

It's a USA problem. This shit happens here disproportionately to other 1st world nations.

Easy availability of firearms. That's the trade off. It's not that they're aren't murders in Canada, GB, Germany etc..but you can't just pick up a gun on a whim like you can here

Its definitely a American problem. These mass shootings rarely happen anywhere else. Its way to easy to get guns. A regular every day person should not be able to get a AR 15 or whatever its called. And its usually done by angry white males.

The NRA are the most powerful terrorist group in this country. Where I live in the sticks, it's all conservatives and all they have on their hillbilly trucks is Trump stickers, NRA stickers and flying the American Flag. Also, has anyone noticed that it's only white people that commit these type of shootings? (edit, apparently one suspect is a female ?)

No gimmick, just real life. I called like I see it. I'm an Independent that doesn't believe in the party system the way it's constructed currently.

There’s so much trans-phobia in this thread that I want to vomit. Stop assuming people’s genders. And this latest shooter was not a he or she, it was a them. Pronouns kill more than guns ever have.

Weren't murder rates much higher in this country when both nationally and locally gun control laws were across the board much stricter?

Murder rates have never been lower in this country than they have been the past decade, and murder rates in cities with the strictest gun control laws (I.e. Chicago) have much higher murder rates than the rest of the country. Sooooo....

Every time I think that Trump supporters are the worst, I’m reminded that it really wouldn’t be a horrible thing if he exterminated all liberals. I mean, I’d be against it in principle, but the end result would probably make things slightly better for the rest of us.

This is a real post from a friend of a friend on Facebook:

“I was forced to watch a news report last night where the cops and anchors kept misgendering him, and it was really rough.”

Well, I agree with you 100% there. Im an Independent too, who also thinks the 2 party system is terribly outdated.
