Trump thinks the synagogue incident would’ve been avoided if they had an armed guard

What a surprise that the idiot glosses over the fact it took a swat team and even then, they had officers shot. One or two guards weren't gonna help.

At this point everyone should just come straight out and tell him to fuck off. Him denouncing white nationalism would be an obvious lie and his alt-right followers would take it with a wink and a nod. There's no getting through to this dumbfuck or his mouth-breather minions.

In contrast, the idea that because of how he handled the embassy in Israel the myth that Trump is somehow pro-Jew is one that seems to be getting slowly debunked.

Maniac threw smoke grenades into a bar and then murdered at least 12 and of course himself

I'd say 59 out of 107 is far from "very fucking rarely"but I still stand by my earlier statement. It certainly applies if he's right-wing and white. Either that, or they will say he is 1/18th Hispanic on his mother's side which also disqualifies him from being white. Gotta keep the race pure.

I’d be more interest in hearing numbers from 2000 and on. That % doesn’t seem to hold with what you hear. And if minorities were that big a part of mass shootings I feel like my racist cousins on Facebook would spam their feeds with the information non stop.

Something awful mixed in the awful news - a female employee at the bar last night was a survivor of last year’s Las Vegas shooting. I can only imagine that poor womab’s mental state.

Shooter is a former Marine named Ian David Long. Ethnicity to my knowledge hasn't been revealed but I feel confident in saying that he's white.

He’s honkey as fuck. No surprise.

Just a matter of time before these right wing fucks increase their activity exponentially and start trying to kill groups of "liberals," whatever that means to them at any given moment.

2 Parklanders and now a Sandy Hook father in a super short time period have apparently committed suicide. I'm not surprised tbh considering how this stuff just keeps happening with no one doing anything and so many people blaming the victims etc. The burden has to be terrible.

Bumping as its Columbine's 20th anniversary today.

I was in middle school at the time and it seemed like such a tragic novelty at the time; a school massacre on that scale. Kind of telling that 20 years and so many incidents since & the conversation has shifted from mass media influence to mental health, while the gun control arguments are still largely unchanged. I will say there is some progress in that Klebold and Harris seem to be the last mass shooters whose names are remembered with a lot the others have (Adam Lanza excepted) gradually been forgotten by much of the culture at large.

I was in 11th grade and somehow did not hear about it while I was at school that day and I still did not know it had happened when I went to work that night. One of my supervisors made a crack that essentially compared me to the two of them (asking me if I happened to own a trench coat, if I recall correctly) and I didn't get what he was referring to until the next day or later that night after work. Had I known in the moment, many awful things would have occurred. As it was, I just left it go. He ended up getting fired a few weeks later for altering people's paychecks. So fuck him and he deserved it, is what I'm saying.

It may not be a school shooting (we need to differentiate *kinds* of shootings, pathetic), but I reference Dylann Roof by name on my tours whenever possible. I also frame it to say I bring it up because I don't want it to be forgotten. Maybe this is different than the kind of notoriety and memory which was the original spirit.
 
In hindsight I was still kinda fucked up from the Jonesboro shooting from a while earlier, so it didn't hit AS much. That said I was the asshole 12 year old "Yeah but HOW MANY DIED IN BOSNIA?!" kid anyway.

Anyone in high school who was quiet and pensive got the "Columbine" moniker. My high school workplace would even say, to my face, that they didn't want me to come in and kill everyone if anything they did pissed me off.
