This shooting does not change anything because no shooting does.
Every mass shooting is celebrated by the gun violence advocates.
Every mass shooting reinforces their contention(s) that you need to buy guns to protect yourself — more and more guns make YOU safer, thus, collectively, more guns make everybody safer.
Naturally, some of Those People are also going to get guns, so YOU better make sure YOU are more heavily armed than they are.
“Thoughts and prayers”, soon to be followed by blaming the victims…
Odd how no other well developed democracy seems to have anywhere near to the well over 130 mass shootings we already have in the 1st 3 months of this year alone. Especially the many who most certainly do allow sporting firearms and hunting firearms but tightly regulate them. Those nations however do not have a large part of their political system that obstructs those regulations and at the same obstructs bids to increase mental health care and funding to aid in decreasing domestic violence. Why that same political group even regularly resorts to blaming the victims of those mass shootings and seems to take great pride in blaming the child victims. Obviously their PAC’s and those donations mean far far more than even the lives of small children. Funny how almost all other developed nations value the lives of their children while some politicians not only continue to refuse to make rules and regulations that work in the rest of the world but even have voted to roll back some child labor laws. Oh wait… The GQP Chicken Cult is only in America. Ah… That might have a small part in that, no?
The response from Republicans once again prove they couldn’t care less how many children are shot, as long as their interpretation of the 2nd commandment to the constitution isn’t violated.
Who’s voting for this guy?:
