    At least he's been caught and won't be killing or hurting anymore people.

    I'm already dizzy from the inevitable spin.

    We've already seen the spins:
    "He was being ironic with the Trump flag"
    "'Awake' has a lot of meanings"
    "Why would a Trump supporter attack a white community?"

    Otherwise known as missing an opportunity to shut the F up.

    And let's not get started into how false this is historically.

    I’d say Lauren Bobert is dumber than a box of rocks. But then that’s not fair to the box or rocks.

    Ehhhh… In this instance, I think she’s banking on either

    - Social media algorithms filtering out the fact-check from her followers’ feeds
    and/or
    - Her followers not believing the fact-check

    EDIT: I stand corrected; apparently this was a real thing. With that having been said, how often does this occur there?

    So in addition to what happened at Highland Park, there were mass panics in Philadelphia and Orlando FL.

    The Philly incident was caused by actual gunfire in Center City along the Ben Franklin Pkwy, 2 cops were struck, but fortunately the Lake Eola Park panic in Orlando does not appear to have any direct cause other than probably the anxiety caused by the Highland Park attack, this being much later during the day with everybody having access to the news 24/7

    It's very fortunate that nobody seems to have been injured during these mass panics, they seem to have happened in wide open areas where there was enough room for many people to run around. If it were a contained area like with happened during the Las Vegas attack, its very possible there could have been a crush leading to dozens of injuries and possibly deaths.

    All this because of the easy access to guns and the fear that a shooting could happen anywhere at anytime.

    There was a potential mass shooting stopped at a purge movie.

    The honorable Governor woke up and chose savage.

    But his take is miles away better than a certain Marge's take that mass shootings are caused by anti-depressants (I wish I was making that up)

    It seems like there should be a parody list along the lines of Letterman’s old top 10 lists.

    Top 10 (or 100) things other than guns that American right wingers will blame for mass shootings.

    Video games
    Anti depressants
    Single parent homes
    Elmo and Big Bird…

    There was a story of a toddler (who was physically safe) separated from his parents during the Highland shooting. It just came out that his parents were killed in the shootings.

    #$*#$)

    News like this just makes me despair for this world.

    today's NY Post front cover (despite being a Murdoch tabloid, the writers are staunch gun control advocates)

    Debbie Lesko, a Congressional representative here in Arizona, said today that if necessary, she would shoot her grandchildren in order to protect them.

    She'd shoot her grandchildren to protect her grandchildren's lives? Is this some witch trial nonsense or am I just missing something here?

    I hope her children cut her off from having any contact whatsoever with her grandchildren.

    But would she shoot herself to protect gun rights? I think that's the question her constituents really want answered.
