I’m open to hear your thoughts. What do you think needs to happen for this not to happen week after week? We are the laughing stock to the rest of the world. Gun violence in this country is out of control.
2 causes - the insane amount of guns in this country per capita. The lack of investment in mental health. The GOP wants nothing to do with fixing either of those.
Do you know the mental health status of the shooter? Past diagnoses? Specific failures of the system?
If not, you’re just using a tragedy to lobby for BS preconceived positions that may or may not fit the situation. Maybe get a little empathy and class and stf-u until we know a little more here. The bodies aren’t even cold yet and you couldn’t wait to hop on here and start stumping.
Who share my “God this is terrible, let’s grieve for these people, find out more details, and then discuss it once we have more information” point of view. It requires a ton of validation when you have this extreme position.
I feel guilty though, like I’m ruining your tragedy rant party, so please, carry on.
An echo chamber requires expressing an opinion to be echoed. I’ve spoken neither for nor against gun control or for or against mental health spending. My only opinion is that you’re a vacuous doooshbag and I don’t really care if anyone agrees with me.
Might have been interesting to discuss another time, but you’ve established that you’re just a grand part of the problem in our “blame first, yay team” society today. Cheers.
Sandy Hook, Parkland, Buffalo and now this had all the same thing in common. People knew the person was a nutjob and I think in most had interactions with law enforcement. When people tell you they’re nuts on social media, it’s best to take them at their word.
Make law abiding citizens turn in their guns? I don’t give a shidd about the rest of the world;?how many countries have you been to? Agree on mental health but Dems are propagating more mental problems.

Fault is an interesting concept _ contributing factor is a better descriptor. Businesses lobbying in their economic best interests is not illegal. Money influences politicians regardless of party affiliation. Just how our government works.
are killing kids now, at what point did it become the fault of those guns? What was the factor that caused those guns to start shooting kids when they didn't before?
Or maybe it's this: Old farts have have been telling people for about 40 years that we are raising a class of folks who do not understand responsibility for truth and self, to the degree that it is showing up as mental illness. Now that this is manifesting itself, we again fail to assign responsibility by blaming an inanimate object.
It’s interesting they have AI that can detect if you’re playing copyrighted music in the background of a video on social media but they can’t catch these guys bragging about wanting to shoot places up. Same thing with mentioning anything related to COVID. I mean we have all sorts of web scrapers and such. Seems hard to believe that a lot of this gets “overlooked.”
