were any other shootings so thoroughly captured on video as Vegas?

in retrospect I kind of wish the photos of the SH children were released in some capacity, not that that’s remotely my call, just a naive fantasy that those children’s death could have some how made any sort of difference whatsoever in this monstrous country.

I still think the response from the many paranoid gun owners would still be the same "you're not taking my guns and if you try I'm going to shoot you"

If anything the militarization of American police forces could be put toward it'd be taking assault rifles away from their owners, but half of the cops probably want personal assault rifles too.

There is a large group of bigots that insists the children never existed. Releasing pics would just have those shitheads putting them on their dumbass signs and geocities pages.

I guess it was a matter of time until we started redesigning our schools instead of preventing the guns from being there in the first place. Great country we got going.

Yeah, this was one of the best episodes of a pod I've listened to all year. Can't recommend it enough. Also, it's intensely depressing so just a heads up.

my sister-in-law is a teacher at her kids' private christian school and they are having some company called ALICE do active shooter training, for the staff now, and for the kids at some point in the school year

so frustrating to hear her talk about like "it sucks that we need this but" stuff when they are such Republicans like, uh bro stop voting to keep guns everywhere

I went through ALICE training
It was kinda harrowing but also like, it makes more sense than the traditional lockdown procedure

Of course it makes less sense than anything else

We’re going to the Oregon state fair on Monday and I don’t even want to go. It seems like an event that will eventually get shot up

Greg Abott: Texans will unite to end these evil attacks.

These measures will absolutely end it, every single point seems like a logical step in the right direction!
A series of new firearm laws will go into effect in Texas on Sunday just hours after a shooting left five people dead in the western part of the state.
The laws will further loosen gun restrictions in a state that's had four of the 10 deadliest mass shootings in modern US history. They will make it easier to have guns just a month after a shooter stormed a Walmart in El Paso and killed 22 people.
Here are the sweeping firearm laws going into effect:
Weapons on school grounds
House Bill 1143 says a school district cannot prohibit licensed gun owners, including school employees, from storing a firearm or ammunition in a locked vehicle on a school parking lot -- provided they are not in plain view.
Marshals at schools
House Bill 1387 loosens restrictions on how many armed school marshals a school district can appoint.
Guns in foster homes
House Bill 2363 allows some foster homes to store firearms and ammunition in a safe and secure place for personal protection.
Weapons in apartments
House Bill 302 bans homeowners or landlords of rental property from prohibiting residents from lawfully possessing, carrying, transporting or storing a firearm or ammunition in the property.
Handguns during a disaster
House Bill 1177 prohibits residents from being charged with a crime for carrying a handgun while evacuating from a state or local disaster area.
Firearms in places of worship
Senate Bill 535 clarifies the possession of firearms at churches, synagogues or other places of worship. It allows licensed handgun owners to legally carry their weapons in places of worship -- and comes nearly two years after a gunman killed 26 people at Sutherland Springs church.

I don't know which of these I like best, hard choice between banning landlords from prohibiting residents from carrying und carrying in places of worship.

I think they just decided it doesn’t matter if it actually was one or two. There is an infinite amount of potential future shooters, why quibble over the difference of one.
