The initial reports from MSM on the Boulder, CO shooting all focused on the fact that police had led a guy, "who looked white," (CNN) out of the supermarket.

I wonder why they were so concerned with the shooters race?

The suspected gunman in the Boulder, Colorado mass shooting is a white guy. Seven reported dead!

Cue “mental issues,” “bad day,” “parking dispute,” or anything else other than what he most likely is - a white domestic terrorist.

It was a pretty common take on Twitter when the image of Ahmad al-Issa being led away by police was released. The media and Twitter are completely intertwined.
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

Soooo stereotyping is a thing and is your issue that this is what white people are sterotyped as?   Or that the stereotype is correct but the media was worng and jumped the gun?

I remember when the press used to focus on the important stuff, like whether the perpetrators played Doom, listened to Marilyn Manson or liked Quentin Tarantino.

At least five people are dead after what authorities are calling a "case of a mass shooting" at a home in York County, South Carolina.
The victims of the Wednesday evening shooting near Rock Hill included a doctor, his wife and their two grandchildren, the York County Sheriff's Office said in a tweet. The family was "very prominent and very well known" in the county, York County Sheriff spokesman Trent Faris said.
Police were called to the scene following reports of a shooting at 4:45 p.m.

"Dr. Robert Lesslie & his wife, Barbara Lesslie were both found in the home & died as a result of gunshot wounds, as well as their 2 grandchildren. James Lewis of Gastonia, was working at the home & died from gunshot wounds," the sheriff's office said.

The grandchildren were ages 5 and 9, according to the York County Coroner's Office.

Unfortunately, I think mass shootings will increase -- yes, somehow increase more than they already were in this whack country -- due to the strife caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Lots of people are struggling and lots of people are scared and lots of people are pissed.

Frustration, fear, and anger are naturally going to lead to more shooting incidents...

I think there are a few caviets.

If it was done as part of a gang warfare, not a mass shooting event

Also, if a family member blows away his family, no matter how many, it's not a 'mass shooting'

At least in terms of the legal definition.

Plus so many people bought more guns in the past year, and enough ammo to fight a zombie apocalypse. It's like they're all just waiting for the chance.

And of course, having lots of guns. You can't shoot someone no matter how angry you are if you're not holding a gun.

BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - Police confirm multiple people were shot during an incident Thursday afternoon at Kent Moore Cabinets in Bryan. The suspect in that shooting remains at large and an active manhunt is underway.

There is still an active police situation off FM 2818 at Stone City Drive as law enforcement responds to the scene. Sources tell KBTX that more than six people were injured, and several are in critical condition.

Fucking shit, I wish people would stop doing this. It's going to start reflecting poorly on America sooner or later.

Start? Started long time ago.  Mass shootings don't surprise foreigners... we just don't understand why nothing is done to stop it.

I'm honestly indifferent towards gun ownership. I don't own a gun and I don't want to. I don't care if you do.

I'm very neutral about this one because I think it's a very, very complex issue that doesn't simply boil down to "guns = bad" or "muh freedoms!"

I don't think it's very complex at all, in fact is is very simple.  More guns means more shootings.  Intentional and accidental.  The stats bear this out, from homicides to accidental shootings to suicides by guns. 

Give every American a box of grenades and I can guarantee death by grenade is going to go up very, very fast.

It's not a value judgment on if guns are evil or not, it's just a matter of lots of them means lots more opportunities for them to be used and misused.  Countries with lots of cars have more pedestrian deaths too.

By that logic, we should ban cars, right? In societies with lots of cars like the U.S., there are a lot of car accidents.

Not to mention all the people that don't wear seatbelts, speed, drive intoxicated (i.e., alcohol, marijuana, etc.), etc.

Oh, and we should ban spoons while we're at it. They make people fat. ::)

Look, when I say I don't really care about gun ownership, I mean I really don't care. I want people to be able to own them though. People like you and me to whom it has never occurred to shoot someone shouldn't have to suffer the consequences of others' actions.
