This one is on Trump and all the followers of the Brown Menace memes......although, in truth, there are less "illegals" here today than a few years back. But the truth is not the point. Right Wing White male anger and violence is.

We'd start a war if a terrorists from elsewhere did this to normal American innocents. But since it fits with the POTUS and Right Wing desires it will be here today and gone tomorrow (in the news).

It won't be the last. There are 100's of Right Wingers out there as we speak who have their manifestos ready.
I think itís a bit premature for you to be posting a manifesto of your own here.

No manifesto - just a copy of what the FBI and Homeland Security and LE and other orgs are clearly seeing and warning against.

It's very real. I hope you are far away when it hits again.

Goes to show the differences in culture between some states.
They just stopped selling them in New Mexico, only because of a new state law requiring them to do expanded background checks. They apparently think that is too much trouble.

Lots of armed people were there. It doesn't work that way except in the Movies. John Wayne is dead and Clint Eastwood is older.

Maybe Bosch should have been there?

But, yeah, read the clips. Lots of people with arms. Doesn't help at all.

Will Trump condemn the manifesto, condemn the crime and urge unity in the country?

The bad guy is the one murdering people, the good guy is the one with the gun running past people, towards the bad guy.

Ah, now we should train our entire populace and also show them the pics of the slaughter so they can practice distinguishing. We can add that to the school lockdowns which are already ruining the childhood of millions.

All so lots more guns can be bought over the counter without enough checks and regs.

It's obviously worth it for a subset of Americans. But my money is that the families of the dead, even if they were rabid gun nuts before, mostly change their minds.....something about a 10 year old being put in a wheelchair for the rest of their lives with a colostomy bag can change the mindset of parents.

Same people who want to get rid of the guns, also seem to want the government to be in charge of universal health care, even though the government has proven with the VA and Medicaid that they are incompetent of handling such a major program.

And if you have a "silencer" you never hear the gun fire.....

Such a sad, yet revealing truth about them......congrats lefties.....
There is a difference between a gang-involved shooting in the Bronx or somewhere in Chicago, and a mass shooting at a Walmart where innocent people are shopping.

Gun violence in general sucks but sorry, some is worse and scarier to imagine than others. A large amount of gun crime happens in situations most people probably wouldn't find themselves in (some inner city or drug-related violence scenario) but anyone can go to the movies, school, work, a store, a festival, a concert, etc. - and apparently be gunned down in a mass shooting for no reason. It's scary to imagine that these mundane, every day public places can be targeted and totally innocent people can be taken out by some psycho who should never have had access to a gun. It can't be reasoned with in the same way the gang members killed in a drive by can be - you can say, "well they lived a risky life of crime or were involved with drugs, that's dangerous." But what do you say about today? "Oh, they were just shopping or at work." Yeah, what's worse to you?
