Actually both… but with payment as barter with a nice heavy brick of a commodity ( like gold? ).
“We” fostered a culture of anger and hatred?
“We” justify their rage?
NO. Hell no. We need to place the blame where it belongs … on THEM. Fuck them and their “rage”.
We need to single them out, those who are most likely t do these things, because the warning signs are there, for each of them.
They generally have some history of domestic violence, or felony, or police record, SOMETHING.
They are not just fantasizing, or talking trash, or playing soldier, when they go on YouTube or join some “,militia” or start buying stupid amounts of ammo all of a sudden.
And Second Amendment or not, we need to keep them from getting even a pea shooter or a slingshot.
AND, now we know “thanks to” the Vegas shooter, that all bump stocks, “modified” sears, “mod kits”, etc need to GO.
Just because there is a Second Amendment, does not mean we have to let psychos, far right Nazis, and twisted assholes get anything they want.
What we have in this country is a Domestic Terror problem. And it’s far right white guys. It isn’t the “ayrabs”, “messicans”, “mooslums”, or any of that. That’s bullshit.
It’s home grown white supremacists.
I’m white, I’m middle class, I’m a gun owner, and I’m sick and tired of the bullshit. No the “libruls” didn’t grab all the guns. No they don’t WANT to grab all the guns… no matter what some fucking LIAR on FOX or in the Republican party says.
But I’m sick of the constant “thoughts and prayers but fuck you I just cashed my NRA check” bullshit.
And I’m sick and tired of these fuckers trading lives to cater to a brainless toothless inbred racist “base”.
Unfortunately, sanity isn’t popular anymore.
Oh Jesus Christ.
“Look what you made us do!!”
The conservative personal responsibility ethic in action.
Ha, nice catch.
I see a huge market for tech. Companies here, wrt identitying mass shooters before they attack. You could download an app that monitors social media, past purchases, and location. and lets you know when someone who fits the description of a mass killer is nearby, and issues a warning to subscribers. And the best part? No big bad nanny government involved. Now that’s a solution all parties can agree on
Free the free market! Unless you’re a pussy
That’s kinda the plot of the current season of Elementary, only the computer mogul villain is preemptively killing the future murderers.
Lol, yeah I don’t think an app can do that, yet. But as long as it’s not the big bad gubment right?
Or is business AND gubment evil? Fuck I’m so confused.
Business is beautiful except when Our jobs go to China and Our IT support goes to India. So long as the IT support for the app is in Costa Rica (1) and your telephone is Made in Korea (2), you’re golden.
1: it’s one of those Mexican countries, but one with a healthy economy and society which sends very few people to the US, therefore one which doesn’t exist. Or something. Pura Vida anyway, damn I miss that place.
2: I suggest making that South Korea, but you may need to check with your President.
Nevermind, can’t have Cossta Ricans taking advantage of our mass shootings.
They have no incentive to do that, though. Also, muscle cars did not die, they had a temporary decline in popularity which eventually rebounded. Every fourth car I see on the damn road is a new Challenger.
The incentive isn’t there, cause of federal protection against free market principles.
Modern muscle cars still require higher premiums, and mostly owned by older responsible drivers. Younger drivers? They pay out the ass, as they should
Jesus, I just watched surveillance video of the Dayton shooter get gunned down by police on CNN.
So the shootings in Chicago aren’t a problem? That’s good to know.
And yes, I have been to Chicago. Many times.
So you’ve got a white guy who walks into a store and starts firing away. Seven customers are killed, six of whom happen to be black.
Of that set of “assailants and victims,” what percentage would be described as black?
Bonus points if you get the answer without clicking on the spoiler box.
Why are you trying to derail this thread with this Chicago stuff? What does Chicago have to do with a mass shooter inspired by Trump to murder a bunch of Hispanic people in El Paso? Every major city in America has shootings. Chicago isn’t even at the top of the list. Are you incapable of just discussing the thread topic?
