I don’t think Dave cares who the guy supports.

Also, happy to quote your “anti Trump supporter” line. Whatever that means.

Apparently my sister knew the doctor. So these shootings just keep getting closer and closer to home...

It “was” an anti-Trump supporter who became a Trump supporter in the heat of the moment. Spurned on by one of his anti-Semitic tweets.

sigh... more drive by fake victim posturing from gzusfrk, it doesn't really matter who he supports, it should straight up not happen regardless, you forgot that part. but you're a hypocrite, you got to pretend to be attacked and complain about your favorite strawman "the left", just a normal day

They weren't friends, I guess they worked in our school when we were younger, and then at our local hospital. Still shook us both up that it was someone in our circle of people we have known, type of thing. But thank you, I hope I didn't come across as trying to make it about me or a personal situation, I just seriously am starting to get anxious with the proximity to either my location or my family's with regards to situations like this.

Like I said before, the gun issue in the US is the main reason (by a wide margin) for why we haven't moved there so I totally get that. My kids don't need to be target practice for some lunatic.

When are you due? You must be super close and excited! Please let us know how it goes, for those who don't have you on FB.

No, yeah, I totally get it. It's very unnerving indeed, and further proof of why we need some dramatic change, and fast. You'd think it'd be a "no duh" to say that people shouldn't have to worry about stuff like this when they go out in public, and yet...

I wouldn't say I have anxiety about these kind of things, but I definitely would say I have a very heightened sense of awareness that I would really prefer not to have.

I split my time at work between a large sports and entertainment complex and schools/rec centers. I shouldn't need to know where to hide and/or evacuate 100+ children in every location, but I do. We had a scare last year where a location we were holding camp went under lockdown because a man was spotted with a gun on campus. I stood by the locker room door with a large metal object (a track and field starters block to be exact) for 3 hours before being given the all clear.

This should not be how we live. It doesn't have to be.

Catastrophic and unimaginable.

Quote:
Sandra Parks wrote an award-winning essay about the constant shootings in her hometown of Milwaukee and elsewhere, and the emotional toll they have on young people like her.

"Little children are victims of senseless gun violence," she wrote. " ... I sit back and I have to escape from what I see and hear every day. When I do; I come to the same conclusion ... we are in a state of chaos."

Two years after she won an award for her essay, bullets shattered Sandra's bedroom window as she watched television Monday night. The stray bullet fired from outside her home hit the 13-year-old, killing her, CNN affiliate WISN reported.


"She took it like a soldier," her sister, Tatiana Ingram, told the affiliate. "She just walked in the room and said, 'Mama, I'm shot' ... The bullet wasn't even for her."

This should definitely be one of those "never forget" tragedies. I still clearly remember everything about when the news broke that day.

It's tough sometimes to see happy Christmas ads and hear happy holiday songs. Just keep thinking about those families, and how difficult this time of year is for them.

And somebody sent a bomb threat to the school and they dismissed classes. Because that's the world we live in now

Just pile on the trauma ass-hats. Poor folks!

And sorry you have that potential trauma sitting on a mid-burner, headache. No it definitely doesn't have to be this way.
I believe it was some where in the 70's that the NRA started to go off the rails.
