We sure heard a different tune last week when it was CA.
And would have heard that same tune if this had happened in NY or some other ďliberalĒ state.

Interesting how common sense rears its head when faced with reality.
Fantastic. Thanks for sharing. Youíre a real problem solver.

Also, where were all of those good guys with guns to stop the shooter? This was TX.
Any sane person armed or not would distance themselves from the shooter and for a few good reasons.

1. Your sub Compact CC pistol is no match for an AK-47.

2. You shooting at the shooter when cops arrive. They don't know who the real shooter is so you get shot by the police.

3. If I am there with my family they are my priority. Sorry, but perfect strangers are way down low on my priority list and that is true of most.

What narrative is Fox News running with? Texas is very pro 2nd amendment, right wing, and supports open and concealed carry. The argument, "more armed civilians would have stopped this" doesn't really work when the mass shooting happened in Texas.

So in essence, good guys with a gun don't mean **** in a life or death scenario. Nothing but lip service.

20 people dead now. White shooter, who idolizes Dylan Roof, David Duke and our racist POTUS, Trump. Just great. Good job, America.

Millions of invaders, 10s of thousands of Americans killed. I’m suprised it took this long for someone to snap back.

You should see a shrink. I mean that in the most sincere way.

Donít care about black male rage/deaths? Their homicide rates are much higher than the rates of any other race in U.S.
