Beat me to it.

I'm a bit shocked that this happened at that Walmart.

Three years ago, I turned off the feeder and into that mall. I intended to go to the Apple Store there (at the time it was the only one in Texas that I hadn't been to) and get a bite to eat. Perhaps spend an hour or so. I had a tire blow out right as I was turning into the mall. I have AAA, so I had them tow me, IIRC, to the Sears there. They didn't have a tire that would fit my car, but they did have tire sealant, so I was able to buy and use that to get to a place a block or two away that had a proper tire. That place was backed up for most of the day, but they promised to get to me. They did..but it took the whole day. I spent the whole day walking through that mall, walking through that Walmart, etc. I always felt perfectly safe, but I'm a 6' 3 1/4" male, and at the time I weighed a lot more than I do now...probably 240-250 back then.

While perhaps true in individual cases, it's used as a convenient excuse, nothing more.

Good lord. Why don't you grow up? This has nothing to do with the Republican party. Don't you ever take a break?

Old as time doesn't disprove what I wrote. The mass shootings in the 1990's weren't anywhere near the mass shooting of 2019, and we're only a little over halfway through the year.

Most people still wouldn’t bother carrying, but a few would. And the shooter would’t know which ones in the crowd, they were.

Some of the shooters would likely change their minds and not do it in the first place.

And how many lives would be saved as a result, without a shot being fired?
Shooters are too crazy to care.

Horrific. Tragic. Infuriating. Damn this shooter who hurt so many innocent people who did nothing to him.
