We have a problem with people getting shot and killed as if they are in a war zone! Can't take our children out anymore because we are providing the enemy (criminals) with unlimited access to guns and ammunition.

If you see chaos and everyone shooting: try a different brand of acid.
It doesn't happen.

There are thousands of people in various parts of the country allowed to carry firearms, and so far, they have a better track record on not shooting the wrong person than the cops do (for good reason: the cops often arrive on the scene late and not knowing anyone there, they don't know who the bad guy is, the civilian was there already and therefore has better situational awareness.)

Assuming the police are right in their ID of the shooter, you bet wrong.

And, if that really is his FB post, he doesn't like people with epidermal melanin or white liberals.

I wonder if we will get anything more than "thoughts and prayers" from the pro gun right this time.

Even a 6 year old was killed https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/29/us/gi...ims/index.html

I heard it reported on CNN this morning. White male, age 25-35, green shirt, gray scarf, shorts, sunglasses and a baseball cap.











Turns out he was 19, but I haven't heard anything contradicting the rest of the description.

I carry a gun and have not shot at anyone since I was in a war zone protecting your right to post nonsense.

what were the political "tendencies", skin color, and gender of the two shooters in the mass shooting of 12 people at Brooklyn block party leaving 11 injured and one dead this weekend?

funny how this Brooklyn mass shooting has been ignored by the media
