Try to think of it as being liberated.

What a fecked up world it is.
Hardly unusual, is it? Needs to be more than the last massacre, or done on ice whilst wearing a donald duck mask...

But your comment hits the nail.

As the BBC correspondent said, yet another mass shooting incident.
Almost a daily event.
Did not even receive the same level of response from Trump as the New York attack.
The Democrats call for gun control, the Republicans sympathy for the victims.
You could put these reports on a loop.

Yes, that's the sort of thing.

The murderer appears to be a dishonourably discharged airman. He used one of these or something close to it. No expert here.



But you can immediately see why it's important for people to have one of these in order to be free.

Is he a terrorist or not? If so let’s have a little shock and awe as we liberate Texas.

So where were the good-guys with guns? Right? The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a . . .

But it rarely ever works out that way.

After the event.



But that's not really the point, is it. The country shouldn't be armed to start off with - it clearly, collectively, cannot handle it.

Armed Walmart shoppers slowed police in shooting investigation

I guess it’s always wise to carry a gun when you are shopping at Walmart.

So no one got killed at the NY marathon, and a White American won the women's race. Has anyone heard who won the men's race?
