Absolutely true, only the gun whacks actually believe that malarkey about open carry reducing the frequency of these events, or enabling bystanders to "take out" the assailant. I heard several interviews with people that were armed. Like you say, they were focused on getting the hell out of there.

Today there are numerous new records being set in this country.

We now have multiple people who have been at the scene of MORE THAN ONE mass shooting....like some Gilroy folks were in Vegas for that one too!

And some vets came back from wars only to be shot HERE.

You'd think people would be up in arms.....at least civilized people would be.

But we will all move on. Eventually people will not go shopping or attend sports games or concerts or the like. They will order online and watch stuff on TV.

This isn't going to turn out well. It already isn't. But it's what a select minority (and one political party in general) wants....so it's not going to change without a major revolution.

And why revolt when heroin is cheap?

Heck, I've been like for decades, of where are the nearest exits, primary and secondary are on aircraft.


Now, you want to say that's just aircraft?

Members of my community were harmed in that attack.


Some of us learned very early.

Really, was this the point of the post , bashing the President? This is an awful tragedy and the whole area is in melee. Many dead, nobody had a time to react.

That major revolution youíre dreaming about isnít likely going to go the way you expect it to.

They just showed a video of a guy under a table with lots of shots fired it was like BANG! BANG! BANG! I think most people hiding in there wondered if the gun shots would reach them...

Most businesses everywhere, who post signage for gun free zones, do not screen their patrons.

It is nearly impossible to distinguish good vs bad guys with guns in the midst of chaos.
