A shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has left at least 17 people dead. Students are among the victims, according to Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.


https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/ ... any-so-far
There have been 8 school shootings that have resulted in death so far this year. That's one a week. Fuck the NRA, and fuck the congressional whores sucking their dicks. They can take their thoughts and prayers and shove them up their asses.

We added another $160 billion to the defense budget for our military, but we can't protect kids at school.

White Nationalist group comfirmed the shooter was one of the their members.

People are definitely becoming numb to this. They just grab the popcorn and glue themselves to the tube, eating up all the details. I hate to say it, but I think the one thing that would snap people into reality would be to actually show the carnage and aftermath of this shit. Splatter pictures and videos of the crime scene everywhere. Let people see children riddled with bullets. Let them see the gore. Maybe then they’ll realize this isn’t just reality TV. It’s actual life...

Also, tell me again why you'd need a AR15 for home defense?

That school, Had an armed guard. He "never encountered the shooter", AKA he hid in a fuckin closet like a pussy.

We need gun laws. Theres no good reason people have military grade weapons at home. You hunt? A bolt action rifle or shotgun is enough. Pistols? Sure fine, if you can pass all the background shit. Anything semi automatic that can be easily converted into a fully auto weapon? I see no good real reason for "everyone" to have access to that shit. Sure they are fun to shoot at the range but otherwise are useless af. Don't tell me its for home protection, A pistol is going to win that fight in a home if you're asleep anyways so dont be a clown. LOL @ ar15s being home defense weapons.

Our country is just way way into guns. Its insane really.

There were 317 mass shootings last year. That's almost one a day, and we aren't even guaranteed to get Sundays off.

He’s probably too busy arming himself with a bigger gun.

apparently the shooter was

    a Trump supporter
    a white supremacist
    a 4channer
    a violent video gamer
    mentally ill
    anything else we need him to be to establish a causality which is consistent with our agenda, whatever that agenda may be

Apparently the FBI and police were tipped off to this kid multiple times over the past year or so because of his disturbing behavior. Legally they weren’t allowed to do anything about it and somehow he could legally buy an assault rifle and a mountain of ammo on his 18th birthday. Great system you have there.

Yeah and that Jack Thompson moron crawled back out from under his rock to give his 2 cents' worth on the matter. That idiot has actually done more to help disprove that games cause violence than anyone else with all his failed lawsuits.

Who knew that a war-loving country that makes its business to violently overthrow democratically elected leaders of other countries and replace them with right-wing despots while depriving its own obese and illiterate populace from basic human needs could have such violence and societal problems within its own borders.
