Actual "facts" don't matter anymore.

Good Lord..the twitter crowd has decided that the Dallas shooting is a result of "open carry" law that just passed and got signed.

We have a lot of dumbed down people living in this country.

How can this be? We have guy with a freaking armored car, shooting and bombing a police station and this is the only 15th response on a thread that was started over 6 hours ago?!?!? Now what would be the reason for that? And to make matters even more puzzling, the words thug, animal, or uncivilized have yet to make an appearance.

It has been getting progressively worse over the past few decades. More so recently.

I know, right? Everyone is a little slow on a Saturday morning/afternoon. I have been busy with my foster dogs so no time to chat until now. Still, I saw all the CNN updates early in the morning and am pretty surprised to see how quiet this thread is. Of course, these always end the same, with the violent nutjob dead.

What bothers me more is that he got an armored van with gun ports off of eBay for $8K.
The cops had to use a 50 calibre gun to stop it.

No one hurt so far.
Does that matter as much as the media wants you to believe it does?
