We can hear the cries of “gun-free zones” by wingnuts again, instead of expressing sadness over lives lost by a crazed douchebag.

And yes, it’s just another day in America.

You know, where mass shootings get about a day’s worth of coverage before the next major shooting overwhelms.

Just enough time for the gun humping idiots in Congress to claim thoughts and prayers, and then do precisely nothing to address lax gun laws that allow them to fall into the hands of whoever is willing to pay for them - straw sales, weak gun reg states, etc. Thoughts and prayers isn’t a substitute for action, but the NRA has made its position known, and the GOP wont budge.

Meanwhile, NYC managed to go through the safest year on record, with record lows in number of shootings and number of homicides. Strong gun control is a factor in that.

Lamestream media too lazy to report on this. The Washington Post buried it in its business section which is the last section that’s display on its front page:

In the frenzied final six weeks of work at the hotel, while Trump touted the project on the campaign trail, AES of Laurel, Md., claims it assigned 45 members of its staff to work 12-hour shifts for nearly 50 consecutive days to get the lights, electrical and fire systems prepared on time.

“We had people there well over 12 hours a day for weeks because they had a hard opening of Sept. 12 and you can’t open if the lights don’t work and the fire alarms don’t work and the fire marshal can’t inspect it,” said Tim Miller, executive vice president of AES. “There is a lot of work that went into that hotel, and it didn’t happen by accident.”

Trump got his wish: The hotel was ready enough that on Sept. 16 he held a campaign event there honoring veterans, which was carried live on national television. He touted the hotel as having been completed “under budget and ahead of schedule” and said that when it opened officially the following month it would be “one of the great hotels anywhere in the world.”

But around the same time, Miller said, the Trump Organization and its construction manager, Lendlease, stopped paying AES. Three days before Christmas, AES filed a mechanic’s lien with the D.C. government alleging that it was out almost $2.1 million. “Merry Christmas and a happy new year to us,” Miller said.

The AES filing brings the total of allegedly unpaid bills on the hotel to more than $5 million. Washington-area plumbing firm Joseph J. Magnolia Inc. and Northern Virginia construction company, A&D Construction, are seeking $2.98 million and $79,700 respectively.

If this were in place, the ability of law enforcement to clear and secure the site would be even more difficult than it was today. Because you’d potentially have more than just the shooter to identify with firearms, but anyone else carrying.

That means people who might have been saved from death or more serious injuries or complications due to faster medical treatment would see their care delayed when cops are busy trying to figure out who the good guy(s) is/are from the bad guy(s).

As it is, the perpetrator was stopped and captured by law enforcement, which again would have been delayed or made more difficult by presence of more gun humping folks at the airport.

Agreed. I made the mistake with regards to Istanbul when I saw a CCTV photo of a man social media users suspected to be the gunman to be from Uighur right away. But it turned out that he was a Kazakh citizen that was already back in his home country by the time the attack happened. Granted I didn’t share the photo, but I still had it in my mind that it was him, and that was also unacceptable for me.

Yet again I sunk low in the height of outrage, but I’ll be damned if I make the same mistake this time around.

…and that’s why I don’t want to speculate. I’ve done it in past, but more and more I just think…no. Confirmation bias starts with the assumption that you “know” something, but don’t have a meaningful arrangement of arguments/proofs, so you’re just stuck with trying to mash anecdotes together to make a pattern. It’s not just fucking stupid, it’s basically the doom of intelligent, thoughtful analysis.

If we’re right, we don’t win anything, and we’ve grasped the same shit-covered stick as Jim.

Democratic Presidents as a whole are great for the industry. I was pretty amused to see that after Trump’s election, the local gun store is having a sale. I guess it’s harder to convince people that 2ND AMENDMENT IN DANGER even though Trump has no actual record aside from his bs rhetoric about being a friend to gun owners.

Manchin’s attempts to distance himself from other Democrats led him Wednesday to meet individually with Vice President-elect Mike Pence to discuss how to repeal and replace ObamaCare, instead of meeting with Obama and other Democrats to strategize how to preserve the law.

He’s fucking over the people in his own state. They’ll vote him out and replace him with an actual Republican. I mean I get being a more moderate or even conservative Dem but uh Joe, you were elected as a fucking Democrat, act like one.

I’m gonna guess the new FLL shooting is some “responsible” gun owners nervous over the earlier shootings saw that the other had a gun, and shot at each other…

If this were in place, the ability of law enforcement to clear and secure the site would be even more difficult than it was today. Because you’d potentially have more than just the shooter to identify with firearms, but anyone else carrying.

That means people who might have been saved from death or more serious injuries or complications due to faster medical treatment would see their care delayed when cops are busy trying to figure out who the good guy(s) is/are from the bad guy(s).

As it is, the perpetrator was stopped and captured by law enforcement, which again would have been delayed or made more difficult by presence of more gun humping folks at the airport.

This is so true. My brother, when he was law enforcement dressed as a civilian, siad he would never had pulled his gun in a situation like that just for that reason. It’s a good way to get shot by the cops.

What’s frustrating about conservative Dems is they’re often in states that are actually less well off than states with more liberal Dems but because those states are more conservative, there’s pressure to vote against things like ACA. That’s why I do respect the other Democrat that will be running for VA’s governor seat. Periello had a pretty conservative district. He voted for ACA, didn’t attempt to weasel his way out of it, and was proud of his vote. He still did lose but it was better than what I’ve seen many Dems do.

I am kinda annoyed that he decided to wait until now to announce.

You were talking about the abuse he suffered while defending Obamacare at townhalls and constituent meetings, I remembering hearing Republicans speak respectfully of him for enduring that.

Yeah I wish he had declared earlier. He’s a good guy honestly and as I said I have a lot of him not only voting for ACA in a contested district but not running away from it either. He if I recall correctly was the Congressman who thought a Tea Party nutjob may have cut his gasleak at his home.

re: #94 The Vicious Babushka

Are there flights to/from Cuba out of FLL? Shooter might be an anti-Castroite.

I’m half Cuban from Miami. I am not a fan of anti-Castro Cubans, particularly since many of them voted for fascist Trump. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds at this point. But I don’t like the assumption and speculation being directed at any Cuban because I know we all get hit with the same broad brush. Left wing and right wing Cubans all get accused of killing JFK. Its ridiculous.

There are Latinos living in South Florida from every Latin American country & Caribbean island. Its not just Cubans who live in South Florida. Secondly and more importantly, Fidel Castro is now dead. There isn’t the same kind of hatred for his brother. Thirdly, there have been in-direct flights going to & from Cuba from Miami International for several years now. Now there are direct flights from MIA. The kinds of anti-Castro Cubans you still think exists are either dead or in adult diapers. The kinds of violence the anti-Castro Cubans engaged in the 70s and 80s was mainly directed at other Cubans, not just random people. Since Republican Cubans are assuming that Hair Furher is going to change current Cuban policy there wouldn’t be a logical reason to attack an airport to change it.

OT: Julian Assange is against leaks and now wants to spy on everyone using twitter. WTF? LOL.
