[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?

Or all the good samaritans who assume black people are always doing something wrong when they are existing too close to them and takes appropriate action.

Don't underestimate the ruling recently where a "good Samaritan" ran down his ATM robber and shot at him missing completely and killing an innocent 9 year old girl. Since he was in the act of defending his property apparently that's 100% a-ok to kill someone by accident.

Wait, what? How is that not manslaughter?

I hate what this country has become more and more every day.

Bo Knows that people who get their kids killed in mass shootings shouldn't have to worry about how to pay for their funerals.
