Evidently we only really get to hear about those that hit double digits.

There's a lot of 3 or 5 or 6 shot that won't make the international headlines as they're all to common it seems!

Nuts.

Exactly. Anybody tried to make this a political issue would be gobbled up. It's a no go area. There is no something either. Just prayers and move on.

They always say it's too soon to talk politics after one of these.  But there's been more than one a day of mass shootings (not necessarily fatal, just 4 or more victims) this year.

So...it's always and permanently too soon to talk politically about this issue.

Crazy stuff. I was in a Walmart on Saturday morning myself brings it home some what.

These things happen all the time in various guises. A guy in LA killed a random person during the week after some sort of domestic  fallout where he killed his father and brother.

Dunno how it will end or if it's just the normal. Less guns would reduce it for sure but wouldn't solve it completely. But not gonna happen anyway, the change has to some how come from the gun owner community...highly unlikely tho.

These shootings are Terrorist Outrages but because most are carried out by white skinned Trump supporters they cant be called that and there cant be any emergency legislation to stop it.
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

"An El Paso mom shielded her baby from the terrorist. Her husband shielded them both

Both parents diedótheir baby survived. Now three children are orphans (2mo, 2 yrs, 5 yrs)"

how pointless is that ?

Iíve said it a few times before but donít expect any changes. If grown adults that have been elected into office did not do anything after Sandy Hook where 26 people were kill, 20 of them children either 6 or 7 years old, then nothing will be done by there people.
Iíve contemplated leaving this country multiple times as the shootings become more frequent and all the closer. The Gilroy shooting last week was 30mins from me and a festival Iíve brought my wife and kids to in the past.

But at least the average paranoid Johnny Sixpack is free to stockpile military-style weapons for when the government helicopters come over the ridge.

Those lives are just the cost of freedom!   ::)
