    God hath forsaken Canada with a shortage of gunz and prayerz.

    Also, this was the 11th school shooting of the year. that is roughly one shooting for every day schools are open for business.

    This country is so fucking stupid that I realized the following last year: Like that idiot country singer on stage during the vegas blood bath who miraculously and vocally changed his stance on gun laws, this is something that's going to have to happen to someone, literally involve them, before people realize how fucked up this place is regarding guns.

    On the bright side, it's getting so common, there's a pretty good chance of it happening.

    I've been shot at twice, wasn't doing anything that required a good guy to gun me down. Perhaps that is why I am such a liberal snowflake. Of course I have never been on the side of a massacre, but I did have a classmate in High School get arrested in home room after shooting his whole family before going to school. I kid I worked with also got arrested for walking to school with a shotgun with intentions of killing people. One other classmate had his head blown off accidentally by another friend. All in a nice safe suburban school district.

    Question...

    What is the percentage of Right vs Left with regards to mass shootings? Any ideas?
    I don't remember hearing about a mass shooter that was a leftie? I imagine they exist, but maybe my selective memory only seems to recall the righties...

    With the increasing rate of school shootings, how much longer will it be before children of NRA employees and members of Congress lose their kids to gun violence ? Will they change or shrug it off and accept it as just something that is a part of being a good patriotic American ?

    Like I said a few posts up........


    But whatever. Cost of freedom. Besides, it's florida. He was probably just standing his ground. Also could have used a pair of scissors with obviously the exact same efficacy.

    6 school shootings "where multiple people have been killed or wounded" according to the BBC.
    I expect if you were to include gun incidences where there was only 1 or none injured]/killed the total would be well into double digits.

    Per @mandown
    But hey, some billionaires got tax cuts at the expensive of the social safety net, so that makes us #1, right?

    i’m also tired of hearing the “b-b-but it’s such a nice safe suburban neighborhood...” that’s where most of them seem to happen. not in the the “scary inner city” schools.

    or you could put it this way.....if you have a kid.....and your kid is the type of kid who likes to pick on other kids.....maybe he gets what he deserves.

    if you think not enough private schools get shot up....

    Welp, just got an email from the White House to fly the flags at half mast, so you can no longer say nothing has been done.

    Really ? You mean thoughts and prayers can't lower the flag without you having to do it manually ?


    BTW, where do you work that you get calls from the White House ?
