    Is it possible that Americans collectively see mass shootings as a regrettable price to pay for something they truly value i.e. the right to bear arms?

    So its considered in the same way as deaths from car accidents. A pity, but a price worth paying for the benefit of driving

    The victims often seem to be white and middle class or their children. So if that does not prompt change from politicians, nothing possibly can.

    Have wingnuts on Twitter started claiming he was ‘antifa’ yet? It’s something of a tradition.

    A other mass shooter with a history of violence against women. Her colleagues persuaded her not to report him after the assault, so not to ruin his career in the US Marine Corps. :mad:

    I think they got so far down the road of claiming he was of middle-eastern appearance that people noticed, and they've spent much of the time since blaming the media.
