And now with the shooting on Dayton , Ohio, we can add another 9 dead (10 with the killer) and 26 wounded to those from El Paso

Waiting for the NRA to come out and say that with more weapons, that somehow wouldn't have happened...

The NRA are only making mass shootings more frequent, so they should be classified as a terrorist group themselves.

Hey guys I'm starting to think we have a mass shooter problem, also a white nationalist problem.

What makes you think that?

Because anywhere else in the world would find 2 consecutive mass shootings to be unthinkable. 

And yet here, while considered horrible, people go on thinking that nothing can be done about it.

So what can be done about it?



Before discussion with KLAMarine begins once again, I brought the bingo to you guys already.

So what can be done about it?

-universal background checks

-programs to help mental illness

-programs to deal with extremist propaganda

There, 3 things that can be done without even banning a single gun.

None of which will be done because of Republicans.

Don't mean to ruin your fun or anything but you're not supposed to allow me to see this. Now I can actively avoid them, not that I would have resorted to most of these... You're in for a boring bingo game I'm afraid.

I do have to point some out as I find them to be potentially valid points: "criminals don't obey laws" and "when seconds count, police are minutes away". Is something untrue about these two?

"When seconds count, the police are minutes away" is the only one that strikes me as a valid argument. [sarcasm] Which explains exactly why you need to have a semi-automatic instead of just a normal hand gun. It also explains why the NRA opposes the sale of smart guns that recognize their owner's fingerprints and accordingly only fire when the actual owner pull the trigger. [/sarcasm]

The fact is that gun violence does, in fact, drop off starkly when stricter gun laws are in place.

Well their are cases that are overblown, you can literally have at the same time a police officer shooting a black guy and killing him and a police officer shooting a white guy and also killing him.  The first police officer will be called racist and we get a rise in 'black lives matter' while we will not see the same effect with the white 'victim'.  

but in the case of texas everything points to a man who seemed to be a white nationalist who wanted to kill and shoot non whites, if all the points are confirmed you can only speak about a white nationlist terrorist attack.  The fear of white domestic grown up supremacists terrorists is growing. 

The second shootings seems clear to a non terrorist attack because he wasn't aiming at a certain group of people but rather a place so the colour of the shooter doesn't seems to matter.
