“When will it end?!”

IDK, ya’ll. 60 people died in Vegas a couple years ago. Sadly, our history tells us that 20 deaths in El Paso isn’t a large enough catalystic event to lead to change. America is well within the midst of the insanity routine. I believe we will self destruct before we get better. I think in this country, we’re collectively waiting on someone else to get the job done. We’re waiting on some big shoe to drop that will lead to an undoing of everything that’s been happening in these past few years. We’re in a sad sad cycle and we need to get uncomfortable.

This is important.



(BTW I disagree with the camp that says "copycat". Sorry. That ain't true. The vast majority of countries have far fewer mass shootings than this and many go decades in between mass murder incidents. The American issue is not one of "fame")

As long as you sell guns like they are part of your normal grocery shopping expect this to happen. I live in what can probably described as a relatively well off 3rd world country in South Africa , but that crap does not happen here.

It's not because of prices either. It's because of the strict guidelines in actually getting a gun and even stricter laws when actually having to shoot them.

I dont understand why some americans here dont want such things to be reported in the media? Im dead serious cause i really dont get it. The main point is not about those sick fucks who just want attention, the main point is about the gun problem in the entire US, that shit needs to be fixed and the world needs to know about it.

I wouldnt mind living in US watching pro rasslin live here and there but things like that really scare the shit out of me.

We're not going to get uncomfortable. Baltimore, Chicago, L.A, border gang wars, these places and things have been going on for years and nobody cares and people get used to it. How many people have been killed by drive bys and shootouts in neighborhoods? How many of those incidents got people to change? There is no change and people make money off of it, reporting on it, doing entertainment based on it. There are people who even celebrate it.

Mass shooters won't change that, because like the former I listed people will get used to it. It wouldn't even shock me if there isn't people who are contemplating as we speak turning these shootings into something they can make money off of.

Ever since Columbine these shootings have become more popular and not with just disgruntled white teenage boys, we've seen people from all colors and walks of life doing it. We just had not to recently, what a gay guy and a trans person trying to do their own Columbine before they were stopped.

Before Columbine this sorta stuff wasn't really a thing and back then you could still buy all the guns you wanted, so it wasn't that. Something within the mindset of America itself changed. Other countries with gun availability like ours don't have the same issues as America does. The biggest reason why this will never change is because the problem is us, nobody wants to think the problem is them so it must be some outside source. It isn't. So things will never change.

It's not about not reporting it its about not giving these terrorists a platform for their 15 minutes of fame. If they want to report on it fine but don't post the terrorists name, don't interview people that knew them, don't post their bullshit manifestos.

Focus on the incident itself, the good work the police did, the many heroic actions of people. Just a few pages back there was a post mentioning a guy helped out a bunch of kids that didn't have their parents there with them why doesn't the media focus on shit like that?

Re: El Paso Mall Shooting. 20 DEAD, 26 Injured... WHEN WILL IT END?!

My thoughts and prayers goes out the to the families that lost their members. I can't stand situations like this. It's like. What is the point in going out to any stores without worrying about either getting shot, stabbed or killed by a group of angry people. This is why I kind of wish that Walmart has a uber driver that picks up the stuff you want and take it to your house. But sadly, I don't think that will ever happen. This is reason why I sleep with a bat under the bed, a knife on the shelf, dagger in the closet and cameras in my house so that way I will be safe. Plus my roommate has a gun in the main room's shelf. This world will, be going to hell even further. They say ban guns cause it's so violent. No. It's the people that got their hands on them and not be asked on what the attentions they will have with them. Sick world I am ashamed to be part of.

How about instead of not naming him, we just call him "the piece of shit",fair compromise?

Its 2019, theres nothing hidden anymore. You cant kill so many people without revealing your identity. I got your point tho.

Completely agree. Its the people that trigger the weapon, not the weapon itself that is the problem.
The people who do this will still be monsters even if they didnt have a gun. I dont see them just shrugging their shoulders and think "Well I dont have a gun so its all cool". Just take a car and run people over or build a bomb(dont need much knowledge for that).

I also agree on the take that people are killed in gang related violence or shootings that involve 1-2 people all the time in the US. But nobody cares about that. Those types of shootings have way more victims that all the mass shootings combined, by a long shot. But its not interesting for the media or the public because its so common.
