Just in reference to the El Paso shooting, does anyone know whether the Walmart had signs banning firearms? 
They had signs permitting open carry.

Europeans neither think nor pray nearly as much as Americans do, yet they have far fewer mass shootings than we do, so thoughts and prayers are not the answer.
Have you figured it out per population?

Do mass knifings count too? Or plain old terrorist bombings?

Still, we have to recognize that the ubiquitous availability of high capacity rapid fire weapons makes it easier to commit these kind of acts. 
You really don't know what you're talking about do you?

A good practiced shooter with a revolver and some speed loaders can do just as well.

I put some blame on our pressure-cooker public schools, but I also recognize that I may be projecting.

Fantasizing is more like it. When you can get a high school diploma just by attending most of the time for 12 years, its not a "pressure cooker"... Although I heard bombs can be made from pressure cookers... maybe that's what you were thinking of.

I posted the article I did because I agree with the statement that vast wealth inequality causes people to lash out.
Especially young people who have been fed "progressive" propaganda their entire lives telling them that they are victims of an oppressive system controlled by the rich and run for the benefit of the rich... That also causes them to vote for rich "progressives" to run the government and make deals with the big corporations... Cheesy

The Sack doesn't take instruction.

He sees it as a limitation on his freedom.

This morning, Trump

1) calls for red-flag laws to allow the seizure of firearms from those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety.

2) calls for "cultural" changes, citing violent video games.

3) calls on the Justice Department to propose legislation ensuring that those commit hate crimes and mass murders "face the death penalty and that this capital punishment be delivered quickly, decisively, and without years of needless delay.

4) endorses policing the "dark recesses of the Internet" in a bid to catch mass murderers before they act; 8chan?

5) calls DOJ to work in partnership with local, state, and federal agencies and social media companies to develop tools to identify mass shooters before they strike.

6) calls others to stop the glorification of violence in our society; grisly video games.
He said:  "It is too easy for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence. We must stop or substantially reduce this and it has to begin immediately."

After this, Corey Booker responded:

"The president is weak.  And wrong.   White supremacy is not a mental illness, and guns are a tool that white supremacists use to fulfill their hate."
  

Governments will always devise ways to deprive an honest man of his money or property, and claim that it's legal.

Gosh, aren't those all traditional "progressive" positions? So are trade wars, but I guess that's beside the point...

I don't know why I'm thinking of the story of the Trojan Horse. Roll Eyes
