Q: Yet another USA shooting

https://www.9news.com.au/2018/11/03/11/44/florida-yoga-class-shooting-on...

It's starting to be a way of life for Americans...no need to report normal behavior like this in the future.

This would never happen if the instructors teaching peace and serenity had an AR15 strapped to their backs....

 

Ok class, I'll guard the exits and provide covering fire while you relax, breathe and empty the mind of all distractions.

 

Stupid jokes aside, the world seems to becoming a more brutal, violent place. Here in NZ you're probably not going to get shot unless you're selling meth in the wrong street or not paying your supplier or something but it seems like the chances of being kicked into a coma for no reason outside a pub or walking home late at night are higher than they ever were. Or maybe it was always like that and I'm just getting older.

yeah, a darn yoga studio of all places!  thought all those cats were chill?  or was the cruel bastard not a part of it? I just read the headline, didn't read the story, like Phil said, it's so commonplace now I don't even read the stories anymore.  I'm just glad the POS did himself in too...

You have a jar of ten thousand skittles and two of them are nutters who want to go on a stabbing spree, do you give them all knives?

I read somewhere today that there were people in the bar who were also at one of the other mass shootings. Think it was that really bad one, the one at the concert with the shooter in a hotel room.

 

Fucking hell, that's like being hit by lightening twice.

There is not a lot that can be done about knife attacks. In terms of weapon used I mean.

The MSM coverage of the California shooting is the usual expected. 2 days of blanket coverage then nothing. Maybe a small article 3/4 of the way down.

This is a strange shooting because a good guy with a gun did go in, and was shot dead. And the guy doing the shooting was a highly trained Marine vet who should have been a good guy.

No calls from the politicians for gun control, no calls from the NRA for more guns, no calls for improved mental health screening.

It just happened. Thoughts and prayers till the next one.

Meanwhile, the AR15 armed minutemen are on the border waiting for the chance to shoot the caravan.

I cant get my head around it. The total lack of willingness to introduce some sort of federal gun control. Just a simple test to own a gun for example. Similar to the driving test.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
