I have a friend who claims that no shootings happen in Texas because of the freedom to carry.  Ridiculous. Guess this proves her wrong! I moved from Dallas to Austin a couple months ago and i can’t express how out of place I felt in Dallas.  You are very correct, the gun culture here is crazy, people teach their kids how to shoot guns and what not. If you are not for guns in texas might as well be ready to argue with people all the time. Nonsense.

What's crazy is that I work at a bank and we have signs that say you cannot carry in the establishment. I've had people get down and make big huge complaints on how it's their right to carry in the bank. It's disgusting. Even when I saw Rebel Heart in San Antonio they literally said it was private property so No one could carry and you would not believe all the loud groans and bitching I heard. It's like a Simpson's episode. People seriously lack common sense here.

Gross. Not to bring Gaga into it but she made a post on Facebook about gun laws and all the comments are basically saying you can't away my gun. That's the priority and it's fucking insane.

On Facebook I often see Americans with massive guns like that proudly displayed as their profile/cover pics. :scared:

It honestly feels like a lot of people in this country have decided that the right to own guns is worth the sacrifice of having people die in a mass shooting every once in a while. If you even THINK about suggesting ANY form of gun reform they will jump down your throat, yet these are the same people who want blanket bans on entire groups of people.

Horrifying and heart breaking but so predictable.  I suppose people again will be told to "pray for Texas" as only recently told to "pray for Las Vegas"  and every other American state previously. Instead, people should "pray for change in gun control" or better still protest, demand change and have mass demonstrations.   The people in that church would of prayed that very day and prayers did not protect them from a demented evil man with guns.   I also suppose it "won't be the time" to discuss gun control.  

Rip to the innocent people who were murdered senselessly in this massacre.

It's sickening! Every freaking day. 

What the hell? There's some really fucked up people here in the U.S.

Prayers are nice but what is that gonna do to prevent the next mass killing? We need a drastic change.

This is insane.

Horrible.  

Funny that those terrorists are never stopped with arms by citizens?  Having the right to buy and wear arms won't help you at all if you're next.

I'm so tired of people dying in the US, especially when it seems anyone who has the ability to stop these people from dying chooses not to. 

The more we see these things happen, the more I realize America really doesn't care who it has to kill so it can keep its guns. If children didn't cross the line, nothing will.

But even the people involved in this latest tragedy were saying to the press not to politicalize what happened with claims on how it shouldn't have happened.... Goes to show these people are willing to die or even lose a child for the gun cause. They want their guns so let these idiots have them and get killed. Everytime tragedies like this happen gun sales go through the roof so it's a win win situation for the gun lobbies; mass shootings bring fear and fear bring more Americans to their beloved guns stores. They will probably allow people to bring guns in churches now.. maybe it's already allowed after all. I ll save my prayers for the victims of war, refugees, starving Africans.. these Texan peeps can keep their guns and kill each other as far as I'm concerned. You can bring the horse to the water but you can't make them drink after all. Absolutely shameful for the USA.

4 of the 5 deadliest mass shootings in US history have all occurred within the last 5 years, and the top 3 within the last 18 months. There's clearly something else at work here besides gun laws, which have long been quite lax in the US.
 
IIRC, and someone correct me if I have my facts wrong but Australia was so horrified by the Port Arthur Massacre that they solved their gun violence problem in just three months. 
 
Why can't America do the same?

Exactly. It's strange no one cares for the fact that guns never saved anyone in a situation like this. They don't protect, they don't provide safety or justice. 

They kill and cause chaos. End of.
