And the NRA finally comments on this case:



Good, they did learn something from the Castile case, even if it still took them too long to pretend they weren't racist as fuck.

Another responsible gun owner:

Quote
An Iowa man says his dog inadvertently shot him while they were roughhousing Wednesday.

Fifty-one-year-old Richard Remme, of Fort Dodge, told police he was playing with his dog, Balew, on the couch and tossed the dog off his lap. He says when the pit bull-Labrador mix bounded back up, he must have disabled the safety on the gun in his belly band and stepped on the trigger.

The gun fired, striking one of Remme's legs. He was treated at a hospital and released later that day.

great, now pitbulls are going to get stigmatized with shooting people as well as attacking them

I had to look it up too

So looks like there's this online community of people who:

Share a clinical condition that (to varying degrees) can cause problems with:
- Impulse control
- Emotional regulation
- Empathy
- Recognising appropriate boundaries
- Black and white thinking
- Separating reality from fantasy
- Taking responsibility for themselves
- Communication skills

who also share hatred towards women and other groups
and who share a lot of anger due to having been bullied and marginalised themselves

who are egging each other on to make increasingly outrageous rants about those groups and how they will hurt them, some of which are now being acted out

and who are also being egged on and cynically manipulated by elements of the far right who have their own agendas (leaving aside the fact that those same elements are likely to have them all exterminated as genetic 'degenerates' if they get in power, and would be themselves responsible for the sort of hatred and bullying they have experienced in their own lives)

What could possibly go wrong?

Interesting - awareness of this problem is growing - these boards remind me of the pro Ana boards in some respects

Another school shooting.  Relax though, it allegedly happened in Texas, but we know that is not possible because everyone is armed there so any shooter would be too afraid to go into a school and risk being shot himself.  So it is probably fake news.

Read his tweet. He's letting God's blessings take care of it.
Trump has to get to the golf course this weekend.

A bit off topic, but anyone else laughing that none of the Trump clan dynasty got an invitation to the Royal Wedding this weekend?

Well he has practically already won the Nobel peace prize for bringing peace to the Koreas and the middle East, so no doubt he can do some good here at home too

Literally more guns.

He's going to try and arm teachers and other school staff and if that fails, a hugely expensive program to bring in armed ex military contractor security personnel into every school. Instead of recess, kids will play live fire shooter drills.

Basically whatever (if he does anything at all) it will be the opposite of a good idea.

That seems like the next natural step. There was never really much thought there to begin with.

Tots and chairs, nothing else could be done


lets just get more guns out there, eventually we'll buffer overflow on guns and get back to 0 mass shootings

Child soldiers.

No, seriously. Lots of people have already proposed this idea.

Anyway, it's cool that yesterday there was a piece in WSJ or something about declining fertility rates and how people who study it have been trying to figure out why it's happening because this is really a mysterious puzzle and I'm like, lol, maybe we should actually do something about children who are already alive being shot to death at school while we're at it, if we're so fucking worried about a population bust HOW ABOUT THAT FOR A THOUGHT GUYS

the avoidable deaths of children may be tragic, but they are a small price to pay for having lots of awesome guns around
