Barely makes a ripple in the news. 😢 

If this happened in any other country in the world, it would be the main topic of news and conversation.

And there are still people who think the U.S. do not have a problem with guns. Well, I guess when half the nation is living in a constant haze of opiods, alcohol,  psychopharmaca and any other drug (legal or illegal) available, it makes it much easier to ignore all the shit going on. But yeah, FREEDOM.

Unless when it comes to freedom of choice and all. Such hypocrites!

There’s more and more guns and guns shooting in Canada. Want to know the reason why? Illegal imports from USA. When you live beside a rotten apple, there’s a big chance you get rotten too.

68 mass shootings in June alone! If the sandy hook shooting wasn't enough to change things, I don't know what will be sufficient?

Thoughts and prayers ..... :vomit:

It's infuriating. And even more disgusting, a news anchor on CNN (which has very obviously drifted to the right side, politically speaking, ever since they were bought by Discovery channel) said, it is impossible to say if this was about hate at this point since we don't know the motives of the shooter. This kind of argumement is so vile. First of all, it is THE talking point of the NRA, the Republicans and gun nuts. All those shooters have mental issues. Secondly, point 1 implies that people with mental issues are likely to go into schools, black churches, synagogues, LGBTQ clubs to kill people. Which is highly discriminatory towards people with mental issues. And a sick excuse. The very same excuse used by people defending Kanye West for his anti-semitic statements. The truth is, most of those shooters knew very well what they were doing. And their actions come from hate. Period. Those derailing the discussion are only trying to covert their asses because they know very well that they are part of the reason of this hate. Giving speeches or even passing legislature that is anti-LGBTQ, anti-black etc. for your very own politicals gains, to attract conservative and right-wing voters, has very much created this hate. Those politicians or officials should not be granted absolution for their actions. In fact their actions should be the talking point. I know it's never gonna happen. They will sweep it under the carpet by declaring this another unfortunate event caused by someone with mental issues. Case closed. And sealed with "Thougts and Prayers".

Since Dem has secured the control of US Senate, can they ban the guns to save lives? 

The second amendment is a constitutional right. To change it you need at least the Senate and the House to change it - but I believe in the senate you need a super majority of 60 votes. It has practically become impossible to do that. 
It took them ages to finally pass legislation on something like background checks or whatever. 
I mostly blame the NRA and their lobbyism. 
 

In any case this is once again such a tragedy and unfortunate misery which could have been prevented.

He's also the grandson of a MAGA republican assembly member in California.

None of these things make him any less a murderous cunt.
