(also, the gunman was black....)

aslo, https://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/gun-used-in-st-louis-school-shooting-is-the-same-one-family-took-away-from/article_f032385a-e971-5b73-81dc-3f73a3375a3f.html

apparently the parents had called the police to take the gun away a week or so earlier, they determined he legally owned it, but got a family-friend or something to come get it. apparently he got it back.

^^^^
even easier than trying to make a 80% glock is getting a black powder revolver(no background check) then putting a 45 colt cylinder in it

anonymous sources: east raleigh greenway shooter was planning on attacking a high school, his brother found out and confronted him

Thoughts and prayers needed?

Time to think and pray like we've never thought and prayed before.

[Edited on November 14, 2022 at 6:48 PM. Reason : Because the old way of thinking and praying apparently isn't getting it done.]

the thoughts / prayers ratio is off because we took god out of the schools. we either need to go lighter on thoughts or heavier on prayers.

Anyone else hear that the gunman had incidents in the past that would have been a red flag, but his grandfather was a GOP assemblyman who squashed any investigation??


That's foul bro.

Hey Duke, you know how you basically laughed when I called the Republican party as it currently is an existential threat? Their continued "thoughts and prayers" while doing absolutely jack shit to stop the epidemic of mass shootings in this country are a good reason why.

Why aren't more good guys with guns stopping this senseless shooting? I was told that was the best prevention. Where are they?!

The bad guy with a gun stopped (brought to an end) this shooting, apparently

^^^ You know how I called the current GOP an existential threat, and then you somehow interpreted that statement as me not viewing the GOP as a threat?

...and then I clarified yet again that I view them as "the premier threat", and that my specific point of contention was that I vehemently disagree with deliberately politically boosting the most threatening GOP candidates (hoping them to be easier to defeat), because (a) that risks them actually getting elected, and (b) you can't credibly make all of the substantive arguments against them, that it's imperative that they be defeated, that it is something bigger than politics and policy--when you are fucking boosting them at the same time."

and you're still coming back with this silly bullshit that is completely nonsensical on its face?

Only one of us is unequivocally against supporting MAGA Republicans. Which one of us doesn't really view them as a threat?

You didn't exactly advocate for it, but said "it worked this time." My stance is more clear.]

Did you? Best I can tell is that you only think the vocal Big Lie supporters are, the ones who refuse to take a side on that issue you don't seem to have a problem with.


Quote :

I said it was a risky strategy, I stand by that.

It's the reason why I think DeSantis is inherently more dangerous than Trump. DeSantis can keep his mouth shut when he needs to and is more effective at working the political levers to get closer to authortianship. DeSantis took control of gerrymandering (even rejecting the FL Legislatures already heavily gerrymandered maps), formed his 'election security police', advocating for shit like 'stop woke' laws, etc. He and Trump likely want the exact same things, but DeSantis will drastically better at getting it done.

So do I think an ultra MAGA candidate like Trump, MTG, Boebert, etc who is WAY more likely to scare away moderates and right center candidates? Sure. Would I advocate for having Dems try to prop them up in primaries? Honestly, not sure, probably a case-by-case basis.


This is what you said though

Quote :
" If it's DeSantis vs, say, Liz Warren, I'd have to think hard about choking back the vomit and voting DeSantis.
"


You fully admit there's a chance you'd vote for DeSantis over Warren. To me, that you're not admitting that the GOP is a threat, or you somehow think Elizabeth Warren is a greater threat than DeSantis.

More Duke comments

Quote :
"I don't plan on voting for him again unless the GOP nominates someone beyond distasteful, to the point of being particularly catastrophic."


DeSantis is not yet beyond distasteful to you.

Quote :
"Trump is bad enough that I would vote for Biden again. DeSantis, I'd probably just abstain on that race."


probably.

Quote :
"I’d certainly vote for him again if Trump ran against him. DeSantis? I don’t know. I’m not well aligned with him either…just in different ways. At least he’d be competent as an executive, though. Support for the Big Lie or Jan 6 stuff would be a hard stop, though."


More wishy washy crap

Quote :
"Not taking a stand is disgusting and being a complete coward, but I won't go so far as to say that would be a hard stop."


He's disgusting coward, but that isn't a hard stop!

Quote :
"Seems like he'd be roughly equivalent. A little better here, a little worse there, but about the same on average."


In talking about Cruz/DeSantis..neither of those being hard stops for you

How do you really expect me to believe you when you say

Quote :
""I called the current GOP an existential threat"
"


When you're fully prepared to vote for DeSantis or Cruz under certain conditions?

I hate to admit it, but I'm starting to think that good guys with guns might not actually be the most effective deterrent to mass-casualty gun violence in this country.
