Every time you post, I feel outraged at the lack of quality education in this country.

What about Blue Lives Matter? Crickets. Of course there were crickets about that on January 6th too.

51 year old father of 7 children, first to respond to a supermarket slaughter.

Any GOP response? What happened to that pro life mantra? I demand my right to stay alive in a grocery store.

As for the race of the killer, of course some are mentioning that he came here from Syria 19 years ago. Seems to me the biggest terrorist threats recently have been home grown. But whatever, life is tough these days for the well regulated militia.

Fox News didn't even cover the Boulder shooting last night. Tucker was ranting about transgender kids ruining girls' sports.

Let's be real. Tucker wasn't ranting. He was asking questions while looking puzzled.

At some point the Dems have to decide is this old stupid Senate rule worth all the destruction and chaos it has caused over the years, or is it time to say fuck it and pass laws that could help (not every one of the items in the Dems Gun Bills will solve the problem, but a lot of them would reduce what we currently see)??

This goes for the voting rights, min wage, and now gun control. You want to keep your base engaged, then you pass laws that you said you would. Blaming minority party won't work anymore.

Over 40 million guns were sold during the pandemic. Every time there's a high profile case like this, more guns are bought. We can't change those statistics, those guns are out there now. But why not make it safer for any new transactions going forward?

Did you come in here and post that without reading any of the previous posts?

I would say you’ve become a complete parody of yourself, but you’ve never been one to take seriously in the first place, so...

What does his ethnicity have to do with the fact that American society is awash in guns and weekly mass shootings are just fine so long as Gun owners aren’t remotely inconvenienced?

"The contempt of Democrats for prayers is an odd sociological thing"-Cancun Ted today after Sen Blumenthal called out the inaction and thoughts and prayers.

Thoughts and prayers for people after your inaction has been a factor in their murders is an odd sociological thing.

Democrats hate prayer and religion and God! Keep up those dog whistles Ted.

Our resident Christian is mad because someone assumed in this thread that the guy had some right wing motive influenced by his beloved QAnon. #notallgunmen

I’m just a little bit tired of lives depending on whether or not a young man with an AR-15 has had a good day or not.

A lot of this rests on Joe Manchins conscience and more.

He alone could have done something in 2013 after sandy hook, and he again is in the spotlight saying he won’t agree to background checks.

90% of the country supports this small measure. But our fucking senate is broken and has been for a long time.

Ted Cruz really needs to shut the goddamn fuck up already. Jesus, he's such an asshole.

Interesting how there's no narrative of that sort around this shooter, isn't it?

I've seen a lot of people pointing out how the GOP wants to make it harder for people to vote than to buy a gun.

Saw the clip of him saying this. I don't think there's a more unlikeable figure in politics currently, maybe ever (and that includes our recently ousted former president and the likes of Nixon and Jackson).

He bought the gun six days before he committed the murders


(AP)The shooting came 10 days after a judge blocked a ban on assault rifles passed by the city of Boulder in 2018. That ordinance and another banning large-capacity magazines came after the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 people dead.

A lawsuit challenging the bans was filed quickly, backed by the National Rifle Association. The judge struck down the ordinance under a Colorado law that blocks cities from making their own rules about guns.

Yeah but you look at Ted Cruz and you just tell yourself “he should know better” while you look at Donald Trump and say “he can’t help himself.”

When there were no meaningful long term changes after someone gunned down 26 people at an elementary school, I knew it was over for America. I expect absolutely no significant changes to take place following this or any future shooting. The blood spilled in these shootings is treated like a necessary price for freedom, a sad reality of an ideal system, rather than a sign that something is terribly wrong with the laws and culture we've developed.

The pattern of reactions that take place after a shooting is so numbing and depressing that I tend to avoid this and similar threads. Then again, we know who wins when that's the predominant reaction to violence.

ted cruz may be a punchable, despicable cryptofascist jackass but he hasn't dramatically escalated any pointless overseas wars or committed genocide against any indigenous populations, as far as i'm aware.

i also think marjorie taylor greene rather easily takes the top prize for current most unlikeable politician. flyin' ted is definitely in the top 5 but you could make a case for greene, boebert, graham, and mcconnell too. if you expand the definition of "politician" a bit you could also include kushner and don jr. in that upper tier.
