Guns needed in Buffalo [at live streamed event]
Some other news reports on this are putting it down as a hate crime carried out by a moronic far right mighty white nutter. :-(

‘No Way To Prevent This,’ Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens

BUFFALO—In the hours following a violent rampage in New York in which a lone attacker killed ten individuals, citizens living in the only country where this kind of mass killing routinely occurs reportedly concluded Wednesday that there was no way to prevent the massacre from taking place. “This was a terrible tragedy, but sometimes these things just happen and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop them,” said a resident, echoing sentiments expressed by tens of millions of individuals who reside in a nation where over half of the world’s deadliest mass shootings have occurred in the past 50 years and whose citizens are 20 times more likely to die of gun violence than those of other developed nations. “It’s a shame, but what can we do? There really wasn’t anything that was going to keep this individual from snapping and killing a lot of people if that’s what they really wanted.” At press time, residents of the only economically advanced nation in the world where roughly two mass shootings have occurred every month for the past eight years were referring to themselves and their situation as “helpless.”


Updated for the latest occurrence.

Reportage in the UK says that an armed civilian shot the attacker, but...

A retired police officer who was working as a security guard tried to shoot the suspect but was among those killed, police said.
That rather blows the NRA argument against gun control out of the water.

People from All The World Move Here EveryDay and Into The Night. Legally and Illegally.

True but at a lower rate than most of Europe, Australia, New Zealand and some countries in the Middle East. About 40th in the world when compared to countries population.

Just another day and a drive thru shooting.

Was it the wrong sauce again?

While Milwaukee mayor announces 2-night curfew after mass shootings.

And then there's that terrorist organisation showing all just how immoral, insensitive and low they really are.

Well Milwaukee's curfew didn't make a difference.

3 shot and killed in Milwaukee following night of violence.

And then again in Texas.

2 dead, 3 hurt in shooting at Houston flea market.

Removal of all bullies.

In talking to a friend who is a gun owner, and a all around reasonable person, he is not at all opposed to universal background checks. He was even commenting about how the white supremacist shooter was able to get his weapon and travel to do his actions. Especially as he was already on the radar. (that brings up the horrible state of mental health in the USA, different topic entirely)

Unfortunately with our present idiot 9, we are going to have to make some changes. We may not need to actually change the second. A law defining the militia may serve. Must be a citizen, have no convictions, give fingerprints, facial scan, retina scan and DNA, take and pass a safety course including firing the weapon, which must be registered and a couple of sample rounds and cartridges kept on file. If you want to keep it, attend an annual militia class/training and pass with each weapon.
