OK, you're not paying attention...

Hey, I have no problem if Texans want to issue a gun to every nut out there. Go ahead. They are already at 3X the gun violence rate of my "reasonable" state and maybe they can "gun" for more.....

Me? I'm going to choose to live in - and visit - and support....places that care about human beings and civil society. At some point even Texans will tire of the slaughter. Many will die first. But that is what they want.

But, please, try to keep the gun nuts at home. I think that is the natural tendency anyway so am not too worried for now.

Still, Texas delivers us mass death in more ways than one. Nuts like (native) Alex Jones rile up hate all over the country...

There will be a point when decent Americans take over and say no. I may not live to see it, but it will likely happen. I'm an optimist because the alternative to that is either failed country or some splits in the Union (which is really fine with me too....if some people desire a more violent society, let them wall themselves off).

What does indiscriminately shooting people at a Wal-Mart have to do with "White nationalism"?

Nothing.

They're desperately trying to link it to control the narrative to push their agenda and to completely ignore everything else.

Texas did you wrong somehow. You need to write a country song and tell everyone all about it.

As for your brilliant plan to disarm the victims before the attack, last I heard trucks are still legal in France and kitchen knives are still legal in the UK.

Care to guess what you use to stop a mass murderer using a truck or kitchen knife to kill a bunch of people?


That's right.

You use a gun.

The good guys show up with guns and kill the bastards.

The only reason they manage to kill as many people as they do using trucks and kitchen knives is the good guys with the guns usually take a few minutes to get there.

We could cut that time down considerably if ordinary people, the ones already there, already had the guns where they needed to be.
No. On so many levels.

How do you do that? There is some very big issues with this. One of the largest if not the largest issue is someone felling a little wacky decides not to seek help because they will lose their guns.

Next up would be bolt action rifles
Etc..

They won't stop.
Oh for God's sake. This kind of rhetoric is beyond tiresome.

From his manifesto, the shooter motives are clear, a racist hateful person, of the white nationalist kind. Domestic Terrorism home grown out white nationalism, and he won't be the last.
