Honestly just shoot us all and get it over with. Really hoping the next mass shooting targets people that continue to offer hopes and prayers.

I think about that tweet at least once a week. Or once per 8.5 mass shootings.

This whole situation is only going to get worse with each unchecked mass shooting by white supremacists and will amplify more and more as the economy tanks and so while I understand people not buying guns I also understand people who also buy guns as a response to all this because it's not like any gun legislation will pass or the white supremacists will suddenly stop shooting up any public location whenever they perceive any slight as we march toward total collapse of this country

At the museum where I work our main exhibition right now is an all queer artists show and we get threats for it and are in the same state with a very powerful (within his constituency) white supremacist homophobe congressman and I often think about how it's definitely possible I get gunned down at work one day and I guess if any of my coworkers bought a gun in response to that I would get it

No, that still seems selfishly counterproductive.

Not carrying a gun for "protection" is a more viable option, yes.

Sorry that's not fair I know you're not saying that but frankly I don't see beyond the two options of buy a gun or wait to die

If a) we're not going to pass gun legislation and b) white supremacists aren't going to stop mass murdering then what are the actual options

I agree but I empathize with those who have drawn a different conclusion because we're kind of running out of choices here

I'm not trying to tell you to be chill. That a place of inclusion and education that gets repeated violent threats is infuriating, terrifying, and a failure in which all of us with any social/political/economic capital are complicit to some extent or another, and one which obviously gets born disproportionately.

But adding more guns, especially on a random personal level, to that situation isn't going to do anything but make that more volatile and dangerous, and doing it to assuage a completely understandable dread is a choice that's only going to put other people in the same situation at greater risk. It's just not an "actual option" of any justifiable effect.
