we are way past gun control here. even if you banned everything except "grandpappys old shootin iron" tomorrow it wouldnt make a difference with the insane amount of militaryesque crap in circulation. these freaks can still just get whatever they want on armslist privately with no check whatsoever and the government is too incompetent to crack down on a meaningful number of sellers.

the media needs to realize theyre giving these guys exactly the supervillian treatment they crave and places like the "chans" need to be shutdown like stormfront. sure they can make new pages but it isnt the endless whackamole that guns are (see Gab).

Remember, you can’t politicize this. You have to wait an appropriate, yet undefined amount of time before making this political. And by that time there will have been another mass shooting so you’ll have to reset the clock on how long before you can attempt to take legal and bureaucratic measures to prevent future instances of this.

At this point, thoughts/prayers will have to suffice.

i agree the big time media outlets shouldnt give the name or motive to a shooting, there's no way to stop problematic speech online

keeping the shooters name and motives silent is the dumbest shit I hear during these convos.

“Hey guys, some person murdered 19 people. Let’s not talk about who he was or why he did it”

Great idea guys.

This! We'll hear about these events for weeks now. That only puts the idea in the heads of the crazies to go shoot up a place. They just said on ABC that the FBI has seen an increase in mass shootings since 2000.

Myspace 2003
Facebook 2004
YouTube 2005
twitter 2006
Instagram 2010

Not only do we have more 24 hour news networks than we had in the pre-2000's, we now have social media to help spread the news 24/7. I'm not blaming the internet, but it doesn't help. The press is just waiting for another plane to run through a high rise, so they can cover it. People love to rubberneck and see news coverage of a tragedy. If they take the news coverage away then there will maybe be less shootings.

It’s funny how Tucker Carson, some members of Congress, Donald Trump, and terrorists all use the language of invasion by immigrants in America, and we still see people questioning and in disbelief why these attacks are on the rise— the radical cleric is in the Whitehouse.

Democrats need to be careful too, if people see political action as ineffective in eliminating trumpism this could cause violence.

So far I haven’t seen any republicans talking about standing with immigrants being targeted for attack, some are even painting this as a random act of violence disconnected from everything else.

The fact our government can’t admit the ideological nexus between these attacks and frame it the same way we framed islamists attacks is exactly what white supremacy is.

“Dayton deputy police chief just read the names and demographics of the 9 victims killed. 6 of the 9 killed were African-American.“

One of the victims was the shooters sister too

I’m thinking his sister was seeing a black guy and he took it out on all of them.

Yeah I'm not saying you're wrong...but that could easily just be demographic. Go shoot up a place in a black neighborhood, and guess what, you're likely to mostly shoot black people.

Were all those anti-immigrant? Innocent question--I've been super busy for the last week and a half, working long days...plus my AV receiver died, so I haven't had TV.


To your greater point, yes...half the country or more is loathe to define these motherfuckers as terrorists, even in cases when it's not even grey area.

So looking like the Dayton shooter was a crazy person. The timing seems odd but he was kicked out of school for a bomb threat, made violent threats to a girl that rejected him, and had a rape list and a kill list.

I'm not very familiar with how legitimate of a news source heavy.com is, but the description in the link below doesn't seem to match the descriptions provided in the post above.

https://heavy.com/news/2019/08/connor-betts-twitter-politics-social-media/

I also find it odd that he would tweet in support of gun-control after previous mass shootings and then later go on his own shooting spree.


By the way, Sebastian Gorka is suggesting that the El Paso shooter was a leftist, too.

^^^ how is that at odds?

He was a democrat but also angry and misogynistic in his personal life, that's not that uncommon probably considering half the country votes democrat.

Seems like his killing spree was for personal reasons not ideological ones. I suppose he could have assumed a country western bar in dayton would have been filled with republicans but I don't know enough about dayton to say if this is a reasonable assumption.

^^ I may have misinterpreted the Ben Seitz screenshot in your link to mean that he was known to have had access to guns when he was in high school, which didn't seem to match his tweets that were supportive of gun control. However, that screenshot may have just been referencing his recent access to guns prior to the shooting.

I still find his tweets in support of gun control and his willingness to go on a killing spree with a gun rather bizarre.

^ Violence/murders/terrorism matters only for certain combinations of the attacker-victim race/religion/skin color. Not just in the US, but worldwide.

Sorry if that is phrased awkwardly, but I think it is clear what I mean.

I want more gun control, I’d like it to be regulated like owning and driving a vehicle with enforced insurance and excessive registration.

But saying that the majority of gun violence is ignored by the majority of the population Is not “distracting” from the debate. Saying it distracts from the debate is awfully distracting tho.

The newest argument i heard on bullshit 24 hour news networks:

Cops responded within a minute, and the killer was still able to kill 9 people. Stop the weapons of war


This is targeted at stopping assault rifles.

Asian kid at VT killed ~30 with handguns tho right?



Second amendment is pointless in this day and age. we have the power to undo amendments, nahmean.
