    Fucking truly historic! Trump has turned around a failing economy in under a year... 8 years of garbage and now we are all winning.

    Obama is like SF4 and Trump is like year one of SF5 which we all know was the best game ever.

    I'm looking at videos of the shooting and one of them has children in a class hiding and the shooter is busting shots in another room and the kids hiding start to scream when they hear the gun shots

    Man if I was in a room hiding with people from a shooter I would now tell them to " STFU if you hear gun shots cause if he hears you screaming he coming in here you idiots !! "

    Should have just killed her like other politicians have to others in the past. At this point I want to hear it all. Trumo should just not bother to save face and say "yeah I fu ked her...so what? Yeah I'm not an upstanding Christian and I shouldn't have tried to pretend I am one" but he won't

    So InfoWars going to call this one a hoax too?

    I want to put this into perspective as I am a person who thinks guns are ok for recreation but people being brainwashed to think guns are being taken away Democrats is fucking getting old and ridiculous. Turning the 2nd amendment into politics for the NRA to get money is getting people killed daily.

    This is the gun used today...

    Pretty much no solution, tbh. School had armed guards and it was probably a gun free zone.

    Dude was known to be a threat, but people didn't tell the cops. Even if the Government voted for gun control, they're too incompetent to institute it, as evidenced by the church massacre last year.

    More guns hasn't worked, less guns hasn't worked. Time to start focusing on the "why" of these events.

    Hoax would be the wrong word. I think they see it as a means to push the agenda of banning weapons and more security throughout the nation. We've had a lot of incidents this past year.

    Fucked us as it is its going to keep getting worse.

    This is the style of gun that keep appearing in most shootings 8 out of 10 times, a Hand Gun.

    Obvious exceptions to this has been the Vegas and Recent Miami club shootings.



    But this is the Gun thats gets all the blame

    Plus the laws we already have is poorly enforced and no uniformity from state to state.

    In theory you can attack the problem from multiple angles, including working on limiting access to "that gun", but not excluding other options including better social services, less economic disparity, better mental health coverage, better health coverage, and whatnot. There's a reason why The Wire was an interesting show, and I don't think it was about any quick answers to anything.

    I'm just confused with how his social media is filled with guns, knives and shit but we couldn't do something to preemptivly to stop this shooting?

    How many times have people been able to see the signs of someone going postal and we legit can't do anything until it's too late?

    Gun control ain't the issue at this point.

    Well that didn't take long.

    To answer to the stupid questions asked above. The answer is fucking yes it matters what InfoWars says and not because they matter or are real BUT because its like a fucking STD or major plaque outbreak. They are patient X. See it only takes 1 person who lives in the bubble of stupidity to move that along and it just spreads. Its why Faux is just InfoWars will no product sales because they are indirectly influenced by them, like so much that they hire people who started on that garbage.



    See crap like that above mixed with crap like this is why some people in this thread are all but brainwashed morons at best.

    My last few pages of comments was me taking a character that I played for a over a week. I was told by someone I was a "liberal" to far left who only gets my news from fake places when I was able to all but shut down all of his points with real counterpoints. So I said fine for 10 days Ill live in your shoes and just bite no matter what and not fact check anything and act like Trump is a god. Its easy to live in the bubble.

    These shootings will keep happening until certain people (or a certain amount) get shot by a mass shooter.

    It's obvious that dead kids aren't enough to get Politicians to address this problem.

    The Republicans will say something about their rights being threaten and the Democrats are too disingenuous to actually take any real action, just blow smoke up people's ass.

    America - mass shootings.. what else is new? We will have a number of them in this year after this one. why? Because shooting shit and causing all forms of terrorism (whether in different countries or in it's own soil) is pure american culture.

    This whole country is birthed from war/terrorism and this country also has the audacity to point other countries as terrorists, regardless of being the country who wins in the most invasions, bombings and mass shootings.

    Fuck america, The biggest terrorist nation in the world. The only country in the world in where you will hear more than 15 school shootings in a year (infact, 15 in a year is fucking progress).

    It's a mental health issue for sure. But the ubiquity and accessibility of firearms aren't helping...

    It's a firearm issue because we are talking about Americans. Americans have been to gun obsessed ever since it became a nation. It's taking their love away, that's it.

    The people who are against gun control due to the reasoning of "well, it's not going to change anything" need to look at this the right way. The whole "banning of guns" isn't just for the sake of dropping shooting % but increasing survival rates. You think a guy going all melee can just walk in a school and have the same success rate as a man with a gun? It's easier to fight or gtfa from an american with melee weapons than a gun.

    Second, the banning of guns is all because of the love americans have for guns that is why we have people (as seen) here who oppose gun control, americans do not want to let go of their favorite toy.

    Part of American culture (no matter what color) is to love terrorism and causing terrorism... and sure, you can make excuses that "shootings will still happen even w/o a gun? but at least people have a better survival rate when some random american wants to be a real american.

    no one cared enough to get him help and kids aren't taught still how to help their fellow kid by speaking up. Add to that parents/teachers that again aren't speaking up. The interviews with kids kinda mentioned this. They knew and no one did anything. We're more reactive than proactive.

    I thought I read parents are going to start being charged in theses cases of school shootings should the gun come from home? At least it was/is being considered With prison time for parents if the gun is found to come from home. Can't remember where though.
