Because the latter would include self reflection and Trump’s entire career in politics has been insisting he’s been than everyone else.

When a mass shooting is a welcome distraction to the omnipresent scandals in Trumpworld, you know the administration is truly screwed, and Americans are leaderless.

Russia is laughing at all the chaos they’ve done on a shoestring budget.

After the 2007 shootings on Tech’s campus, students and staff at the Florida high school sent a more than 100-page handcrafted wooden book to the university that is now part of Tech’s April 16, 2007, condolence archives.

Two then-Stoneman Douglas students collected letters and artwork from fellow students across Florida to fill the large wooden book that says “in memory of 32” on its front. It is the largest condolence book Tech received after the shooting, according to the university’s archivist.

When a mass shooting is a welcome distraction to the omnipresent scandals in Trumpworld, you know the administration is truly screwed, and Americans are leaderless.

I confess when news of the mass shooting first broke, I was worried about the quisling, cowardly, “but muh access” both-siderist MSM using it for their usual “today was the day he became president” blather.

But thanks to Cheeto Benito’s subsequent tweets plus the students who bravely spoke out, perhaps that “mass shooting as distraction” advantage is already up in smoke.

I am always going to have reservations about Gillebrand’s judgment after watching her steer that bandwagon, and I’m still narked at my Dem senator for jumping on.

I’m kind of wondering how many Republicans are really as married to the NRA now as they were say 6 days ago?

If some of the Republicans were only going along with the NRA to get along, a shift in the politics could allow some of them to abandon the NRA.

Politics, to me, is all about riding a wave and fitting in with popular thinking, and that means you may not actually believe what you are running on 100%. It also means reading the tea leaves and making movements in other directions when needed.

This summer is going to be interesting to see how guns fit into the need of the Republicans to hold their offices to prevent a Democratic onslaught. If the young folks get enough of their elders on their side, there might be a chance where the NRA may just be refused.

And no I am not saying it is for sure going to happen. Just something to watch for.

I can’t remember now which LGF’er said it, but it was that photo - dug up by the alt-right ratfuckers at the most ratfuckable time - that really did Franken in. It was the worst possible visual under the circumstances.

The bill doesn’t add any new background check requirements and the House version includes a “Concealed Carry Reciprocity” provision, which would force states to let people carry concealed firearms in public, regardless of their individual history or training experience.

In other words, passing it would make zero net difference.

re: #63 Backwoods_Sleuth

Eh, Tillerson’s point about serving different interests isn’t completely wrong. As CEO of Exxon, his job was to maximize profits for the company; if working with Putin did that (and was within the law), then it’s not that big of a deal. Now, if his objectives did not change when he became Secretary of State, that is a problem, but his “same cowboy, different hat” remark at least suggests that he understands that he now has different obligations, even if he has pre-existing relationships with some of the players.

The bigger problem with his role as Secretary of State is that he had previously shown no interest in government, international law, diplomacy, or any of the billions of other things the State Department is responsible for. In short: he’s as unqualified as any member of the Trump Administration for the job he was given.

I think it actually adds to the problems. More concealed guns in public just add more possibility for someone to pull that concealed gun out when in a rage.

And, what does it do for the current thinking that an armed guard can stop a bad guy with a gun if the bad guy can conceal it right up until they pull it out and get the jump?

Oh wait, I’m sorry. What was I thinking. A bad guy would never conceal a gun…only good guys carry concealed guns so that the bad guys don’t know they can be stopped.

My friend had to put his autistic cat to sleep today because of a rapidly-growing tumor.

She never meowed and would communicate via bites. I got to know her when I visited him in Portland, and I learned that she’d accept affection if you knew how to handle her, and didn’t flinch at the bites.

Visiting him after he moved back to Chicago, she’d run right up to me, bite me hello, and settle in my lap for petting. It’s a really sad day. My friend says he’s at an all time low, and I’m pretty miserable about it myself. She was a unique animal.

Condolences to you both.

My cat bites, but he meows and likes children, and nibbles a person when he’s happy. I’ve been by the house where his suspected brother lives 3 times now, and now I’m sure it’s his brother, because he grabbed my hand with paws and teeth when I scritched him last time.

re: #124 FormerDirtDart

I wonder if we were to pass a new assault weapons ban, how a buy back program could work. There’s obviously a Fifth Amendment Takings Clause issue, and whether the ban/buyback would fall under “public use”. Calling voluntary would obviously be a way around it, but then there’s a question of what do we do about the weapons still floating around society? We could ban the transfer of said weapons, but that could eventually creates a problem when someone dies and it becomes a part of their estate.

There would obviously be a backlash and court challenges, but I do wonder if it would be feasible in the current political climate?

My friend had to put his autistic cat to sleep today because of a rapidly-growing tumor.

She never meowed and would communicate via bites. I got to know her when I visited him in Portland, and I learned that she’d accept affection if you knew how to handle her, and didn’t flinch at the bites.

Visiting him after he moved back to Chicago, she’d run right up to me, bite me hello, and settle in my lap for petting. It’s a really sad day. My friend says he’s at an all time low, and I’m pretty miserable about it myself. She was a unique animal.

Condolences to your friend. It’s tough to let a furry buddy go. I had a cat, name of Xena, who would lightly bite my fingers. Never hard, never broke skin and it was always an affectionate thing. My current cat, Nicki, loves to lick my hands. Especially if I have the odor of hand moisturizer. I’ve given up asking why, but I did check and it shouldn’t be harmful to her, particularly if it’s hours after I’ve put it on. She also checks my elbows for hand lotion scent.

For those who know much more about guns than I do, couple of questions:

… I’ve seen a lot of the “when we were in high school we had rifles on gun racks in our trucks and nobody shot up the school” memes…

It seems to me that you are correct. There is a significant issue with the change in culture, above and beyond the technical increase in available lethal weapons like the AR-15.

And I would agree with those who say we need to address the issue on all fronts, reduce the availability of highly lethal weapons, and affect the culture.

For me…

Growing up in the 1960’s in Pittsburgh, it did not even occur to me that one would want to shoot anyone outside of a formal war.

Rifle racks in pickups were, at the time, a rural phenomenon. As were pickup trucks themselves. Doing this in an urban environment seemed to me, anyway, as an invitation for theft of the rifles. Further, there was nothing in a city to shoot.

My first guess on the current onslaught of shootings was the rise of video style mass media. Which brought pictures of violence. And introduced that possibility into folks daily consciousness.

One of the problems with visual media is that it tends to focus and concentrate on the aberrant minority rather than on the mundane majority. And often totally out of context.

A second step was the decrease in cost to own lethal weaponry and the rise of a mass market. And in the concept that a firearm was some glorious symbol for a lofty thing like ‘Freedom’ rather than a tool for very specific purposes.

I think that the next step was the rise of the rage media, such as Fox, Rush Limbaugh, and Alex Jones

At some point, I think that society will figure out how to handle these issues. Or society will self destruct.

Just my opinion…

They are in a country that has a well regulated militia, where military crises means that they’re called to service at a moment’s notice, and there is strict gun control so that those weapons are for when they’re in uniform.

And look, they’re all in uniform.

One year from date of passage to turn in your hi-cap bullet holders at any licensed gun dealer for a new 8-round replacement. Feds pay out the price differential.

You get to keep all your guns! You can rent hi-cap mags from licensed shooting ranges if you want to get your jollies out, but in your house? Sorry, Charlie.

Hi folks,
I know this isn’t even a blip on the national radar, but this story has been developing in Everett, Washington. The only reason I’m aware of it is that Everett is the main city in my home county in the U.S. and I still keep up on the news there, at least a little bit.

Everett student’s journal: ‘I’m learning from past shooters’ — Police say he had a rifle and “detailed plans” to kill classmates. His grandmother turned him in.

This is like the scene in The Exorcist, where the two priests are deep into the Catholic exorcism and little cute Regan is now a vomit spewing, head turning, body levitating, false image of reality demon trying to remain in control (of the Fox news and wingnut narrative) body.

As soon as some of the students started to speak to the media I commented they seemed to have gotten a good education at their school. You could tell by how well spoken they were…all of them. Their answers were sharp and quick, no stammering or “you know” type words.

Now with them getting political and organizing, I am wondering about their history, civics and government departments and their education methods. I’m thinking they get more of it and it is treated better than many other schools. Maybe a model education for today’s students.

And I am thinking there are some very proud teachers behind these kids. I know I would be if they were my students.

on arming teachers - whatever the method - ie ccw so on the hip, locked in a box somewhere, whatever

what kind of gun? handgun? ar-15? shotgun? probably handgun id guess

bad guy sneaks into school with an ar-15 and starts shooting. now thanks to the video from last week we know what that sounds like

these teachers will have had a basic gun safety course
they might even have had some sort of “here’s what you do if” training
it will not be police, swat or army training (sir)
recurrent? who knows

they will likely not be trained under hostile ‘enemy’ fire pointed at them
these people will not be heroes

no one with whatever training these teachers have is going to run towards that.

i heard an interview on the way home tonight

the dad of the house where cruz is / was living before last week
apparently they did try to do a lot for the kid

now im not certain, - only mostly certain he said two things:

1 - absolutely nothing inappropriate about cruz having an ar-15 (he’s 19 and it’s legal he wants you to know)

2 - the kicker: “it was (or was supposed) to be locked up in my gun safe/cabinet and i thought i had the only key”

i want to know legally whose gun was it
and who was responsible for keeping it controlled and secure

IF this is true, take dad’s guns, no more 2a rights, throw him in jail, and everyone affected ought to sue him into financial oblivion

The much, much simpler worse case scenario is: teacher shoots agitated student to “defend” class.

Because part and parcel of the “arm the teachers” concept is the exact same bar that’s been lowered by ‘stand your ground” and “right to brandish” legislation: changing the legal and social norms of when lethal force can be applied.

Now fit that together with a broader picture of whose deaths get excused as necessary, or at least justifiable, and you begin to get a picture of what we’re headed for.

re: #310 dangerman

on arming teachers - whatever the method - ie ccw so on the hip, locked in a box somewhere, whatever

what kind of gun? handgun? ar-15? shotgun? probably handgun id guess

bad guy sneaks into school with an ar-15 and starts shooting. now thanks to the video from last week we know what that sounds like

these teachers will have had a basic gun safety course
they might even have had some sort of “here’s what you do if” training
it will not be police, swat or army training (sir)
recurrent? who knows

they will likely not be trained under hostile ‘enemy’ fire pointed at them
these people will not be heroes

no one with whatever training these teachers have is going to run towards that.

Screw it. Every kid has to wear combat armor and a kevlar helmet.

Teachers and staff too.

With machine gun nests built into the ends of every hallway with back access to all the different nests throughout the school. Only security gets access to the security tunnels, stairs and halls behind the school walls on each end of the building.

They also are equipped with hi-res cameras all through the building. Security central can be watching the whole school from a turret built above the main entrance.

With small lethal drones that can navigate the halls and fire small round gunfire.

We can beat this back I tell you. What’s the harm? We just have to get real and think big.

This is gol’damn America! We don’t run from a problem. We go nuts.

This is called consciousness of guilt. It is evidence of criminal activity by Trump. #TrumpColluded

The only reasonable answer is a doomsday weapon under every school. If someone attacks, the weapon is triggered and the attack ends in a small mushroom cloud. It’s the only way to be sure to stop shootings.

re: #312 Quoth the raven, Covfefe.

I’m thinking of the worst-case scenario: A kid, knowing that the teachers are armed, manages to get the teacher’s gun and shoots him/her and the rest of the class. Then, of course, we’d have to arm all the students, because more guns is always the answer.

Some Florida State Rep was talking about lock boxes. So you gotta run to wherever to get the gun first

The army has to train and drill it into you to run into incoming fire
A lot of soldiers still don’t when the time comes

These folks won’t

Here’s Ted Cruz doing the blame enforcement two step on the Sutherland shooting:

“…Cruz said on Fox that a lack of reporting of federal and state records to the background check system was a problem. But his legislation did not seem to make this easier. The amendment eliminated sanctions for states that failed to submit records and lowered the cap on grant money to help states submit them from $100 million to $20 million.

The original bill from then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., would have expanded background checks on purchases from only federally licensed gun dealers to all transfers, even private ones among family members, with few exceptions. But the Grassley-Cruz amendment chucked the expansion of background checks and even allowed for the interstate sale and transportation of firearms.”

I’m not sure I’d bother with wishing me any luck. I’ve never worked at a game company — the closest I’ve gotten was having the Best Interview Of My Life with NCSoft in Austin a decade ago when I was up for a writing job for the late lamented “City of Heroes.” A company like Blizzard will likely get industry heavy-hitters sending applications — mine will be at the bottom of the stack.

There have been a number of studies and simulations on civilian concealed carry response to active shooters in crowd situations. All that I have seen have shown that the first shooter tends to win a shoot out. (Guy with the initiative. Invariably the bad guy.) Here is one example:

Proof that Concealed Carry permit holders live in a dream world

In real life, iirc there was a guy with a concealed J-Frame (ie snubnose revolver) who tried to stop a guy with an ak, down in Texas. The civilian died.

re: #319 The Ghost of a Flea

The much, much simpler worse case scenario is: teacher shoots agitated student to “defend” class.

Because part and parcel of the “arm the teachers” concept is the exact same bar that’s been lowered by ‘stand your ground” and “right to brandish” legislation: changing the legal and social norms of when lethal force can be applied.

Now fit that together with a broader picture of whose deaths get excused as necessary, or at least justifiable, and you begin to get a picture of what we’re headed for.

I like to call it an NRA hellscape, where the only thing that will supposedly matter is the size of one’s guns and ammo hoard. Selling this vision to increasingly swivel-eyed loons is how the US gun industry makes its domestic profits.
