[Discussion] Mass Shootings - Yeah, we need a thread just for this...

This year is the deadliest year ever in terms of mass shootings. In a political climate of polarization, it becomes harder to suss out legitimate information from the misinformation propagated by those with political agendas. Complicating this more is the continual resistance of 2nd amendment advocates to allow for political talk surrounding these massacres. This will involve political discussion to see if there are ways we can all agree might be good ways to prevent mass shootings.

This discussion should involve the details of any current, or future mass shooting, and how they compare to past mass shootings. How are they the same? How are they different? Do gun laws have an impact? Does the race of the shooter affect how we treat them? What makes one a hate crime and one an act or terrorism? Are these shootings the price of freedom?

she didn't have a gun so I'm questioning what she means by "kind of prepared".

Only so long as that girl isn't able to vote once she's an adult.

Lego to gunmaker: Stop making a Glock that looks like our toys

And yes, this is a real gun that shoots real bullets that kill real kids.

Here's to hoping Lego sues the ever-loving sh*t about of Culper Precision and forces their company out of business just from the legal fees.

That's f*cking horrifying.
