[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?

Can you actually read that?

Yup, when they capture a mass shooter:

Yeah sorry it's something someone else shared. It is readable if you zoom in though. It's basically a checklist of what Mr. KKK was going to do before his murder spree.

In every way inspired by the Christchurch shooter, given that the nature of the internet is such that his message is out now, and can't be squelched.

SIDENOTE: I truly hate @OccupyDemocrats

That’s the only answer they have. “Orange man bad, send us money, go vote harder.”

I should amend that and say they're tied with whoever runs that cutesy "White House pets" or whatever account who I'm sure was like "We're all pawfully sad about all the hoomans who died today"

You left out "RT if you agree."

Shooting at a church in Orange County. One dead, several wounded.

More of this and less talking about what the shooter posted may shift the focus

Like, I shouldn't be, because "truth" means nothing to them, but it's still amazing to see some internet RWers arguing that actually, the self-proclaimed fascist and white supremacist is actually a leftist.

Hmm

"Leftist" is a self-proclaimed fascist ergo
Supporter of state-sponsored oppression ergo
Supporter of systemic white supremacy in law enforcement ergo
Right wingers are against systemic white supremacy in law enforcement ergo
Right wingers believe black lives matter and are working to dismantle the system and build a more equitable system in its place?

Hmm

I keep alternating between fury and despair in the wake of such evil. Heartbreaking to reflect upon the lives so senselessly lost.
