We are all just meat in this country. Your life doesn't matter. Your life has no value outside of however many nickels some corporation can squeeze out of you before you die. Doesn't matter how. Just keep working the plantation until you take a bullet or get cancer.

Freedom.

I don't know why this is so hard to see.

People I know in SW MO have weighed in to my FB post about the shooting...

Same person
Quote:
In other words, let's rewrite the Constitution.... That dadgum bill of Rights....

Quote:
Amended and rewritten are 2 different things. But they can't ammend the bill of Rights.... At least not to my knowledge


Quote:
Are the weapons the problem or the people? Riddle me that? Weapons have been around all of my life and I was taught to respect them..... wonder what changed?

After letting her know guns are the common link
Quote:
no [expletive].... its guns.... really?! I had no idea.... and.... guns were easier to get 15 years ago legally than they are now. Illegally anyone could always get them. So what are you saying? The guns kill people and we should get rid of them and then no murders or mass murders would happen because the guns are gone? Right? Is that what you are saying? Because guns, knives, people's bare hands.... kill people by themselves.... correct?! Why don't we focus more on getting people help? Just a question....


Can't explain this one...
Quote:
The problem is no one follows gun laws. Read up. Not thr government nor the feds. Come get mine. Smirjy lil bastard


And my dad weighs in as witty as ever...
Quote:
I’ll bet the guy who was holding that dastardly gun was doing his best to keep it from firing at those people.

Sandy Hook. When US did less than nothing after those children were murdered, US ceased to be a civilized nation.

If we would just arm our teachers, we could prevent this.

Oh wait........

Make sure everyone in a bar is armed. It really is that simple.

How shady money from the NRA got TX Gov Greg Abbott jump-started, politically.

Same [expletive] this time as when Sutherland Springs had a church shooting with 26 dead under his watch. He talks about thoughts and prayers, and tells us--ugh--to keep the first responders as much in our thoughts and prayers as the victims' families. The victims' families are literally now defined by the word "victims" and the first responders are a trained, armed small army doing their [expletive] jobs, but leave it to a puppet of the gun lobby that is backed by police/military fetishists to tell us that they suffered as much as people who lost a daughter or a husband. The governor did not use the words "hate crime" or "assault rifle" or "mass shooting" or "another mass shooting" or anything along those lines, just a bunch of [expletive] about prayers and first responders, like these guys rushed into a falling skyscraper on 9/11 or something.

Disgusting. No wonder it happened again 15 hours later. Our politicians are too afraid of the NRA, who represents a remarkable minority of Americans, to do anything about it.

They do the same for me. If a white nationalist drives 10 hours to murder people because they're Latinx, that racist POS should be drowned or killed by a million cuts.
