    Is that the Super Bowl Trophy? If so, let’s have a celebration and parade through downtown.

    Gun manufacturer should be proud of what their guns have done and run ads like; AR15 We can kill more people in 15 minutes than most guns do all day.

    Same cartoon, same comment as yesterday:

    Gun violence advocates get another chance for celebration with the superbowl parade mass shooting.

    I read a headline that it was the result of a ‘personal dispute’. Who could ever have guessed that in a crowd that size there would be a personal dispute? Maybe even more than one.

    Just imagine if there were even more guns in the crowd — you know, more guns make us safer.

    .

    And everyone was grateful that so many ‘good guys with a gun’ were on hand to stop the carnage… oh wait, it turns out there were NO ‘good guys with a gun’ even in a crowd that size.

    Maybe all them ‘good guys’ aren’t really so brave, even though they are armed. Or, maybe they don’t have the faintest idea what to do, because their fantasies don’t match reality.

    I missed the Rethuglicon “thoughts and prayers” after this shooting.

    The GOP and the NRA stongarmed the 2nd amendment, and they don’t care how many children die as long as they get their checks from the arms industry.

    “… While 2021 saw the highest total number of gun deaths in the U.S., this statistic does not take into account the nation’s growing population. On a per capita basis, there were 14.6 gun deaths per 100,000 people in 2021 – the highest rate since the early 1990s, but still well below the peak of 16.3 gun deaths per 100,000 people in 1974.

    A line chart that shows the U.S. gun suicide and gun murder rates reached near-record highs in 2021.

    pewresearch.Org/short-reads/2022/02/03/what-the-data-says-about-gun-deaths-in-the-u-s/ft_23-04-20_gundeathsupdate_3/

    The gun murder rate in the U.S. remains below its peak level despite rising sharply during the pandemic. There were 6.7 gun murders per 100,000 people in 2021, below the 7.2 recorded in 1974.

    The gun suicide rate, on the other hand, is now on par with its historical peak. There were 7.5 gun suicides per 100,000 people in 2021, statistically similar to the 7.7 measured in 1977. (One caveat when considering the 1970s figures: In the CDC’s database, gun murders and gun suicides between 1968 and 1978 are classified as those caused by firearms and explosives. In subsequent years, they are classified as deaths involving firearms only.) …" — pewresearch.Org/short-reads/2023/04/26/what-the-data-says-about-gun-deaths-in-the-u-s/

    Everyone knows where the Real Dark problem is, but refuse to address it. When you have groups of people that think a shoulder bump is grounds for Murder & an abundance of Stolen Illegal guns, it will always be a problem. Taking away all (LOL) the guns is another liberal fantasy. If any one Really wanted change they would attack the problem. I remember when I first saw all the bars on store windows & 5" pipes in front of the doors of 7-11’s in my hometown. I think it was around 12 years after block busting had taken over & decent people had fled, what was fast becoming a Very Dangerous place. Now there is a daily shooting or more, with a Lot culminating in Murder.

    None of the ‘right’ cartoonists have mentioned the parade shooter.

    Yup, another ‘mass shooting’ by a middle age, white, NRA member. Chicago has 5 or 6 every weekend.

    But, look at the bright side. Events like this are a boon to the local economy what with reporters buying lunches and hotel rooms. Flower shops sales will go up. Overtime for the local police. Gun sales up so manufacturing will go up to meet the demand. Seriously, this is big and profitable stuff.. /S

    Heller had a good one in the paper yesterday about the Jesus ads during the Superbowl. It hasn’t shown up here yet.

    Was it a legally-owned gun by a legal US citizen? (Hint: It’s no to both)

    Actually, few if any of these mass shooters are part of the “gun culture.” The incredibly large majority of those belonging to the “gun culture” shoot for hunting, target contests, and possess the gun for home or self defense. I don’t know if any reliable research has been done, but I suspect most if not all these shootings involve people that recently acquired the gun for evil purposes. Not truly a member of the “gun culture,” but rather the criminal culture or the nut culture.
