I knew that there'd be more. :-(

Mother Shot Dead in South Bend Days After 5-Year-Old Son Killed in Gun Accident.

NYC EMT shot by patient in ambulance.

And yet they can't get enough of the murderous things.

US firearm production, imports ramp up in recent decades.

The production of firearms in the U.S. has ramped up exponentially in recent decades with domestic manufacturing more than doubling and imports more than quadrupling, according to a new study by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The increases between the years 2000 and 2020 were fueled by the mass proliferation of the pistol as the most widespread firearm type and a 24,080% percent increase in manufacturing of short-barreled rifles, according to the ATF report. The number of firearms made in the U.S. increased by 187% and the number imported increased by 350% over the same period....
It must be a sickness of the mind.

Now for the big question.
COVID-19, shootings: Is mass death now tolerated in America?
IT IS WRITTEN there will be an apocalypse. It is preached in every reactionary christian church in the USA. Death is good because it means DOG is watching over his flock and you will be saved. It is DOG's will.

Now that the offender is down, this is the latest update.

14 students, 1 teacher dead after shooting at elementary school: Governor.

[edit] Update; Indications now that the shooter could've been involved in an earlier shooting incident of a 66yr old woman and a young girl with both in a critical condition, but that's yet to be verified.

And this looks like another was averted.

Rifles, Hundreds of Ammo Seized From Man Stalking Co-Workers.

Why don't all these nutters just agree on a spot away from everyone else and just shoot it out amongst themselves?

The death tally for the latest Texas massacre has now climbed to 19 children and two adults killed and that could still climb further yet.

Response to horror school shooting proves America still doesn’t get it.

Send all your firearms to the Ukraine, at least they'll be used there to kill Russian war criminals instead of U.S. children.

Two things from this incident, as viewed from outside the U.S.
The first being that, in a country where guns are common, waving toy guns around is dangerous and can get you killed. And two the ease at which a teenager was able to pick up a real firearm and use it.

Teenager Fatally Shot By Friend in 'Prank Gone Wrong': Police
A 15-year-old was has been shot dead in Mississippi in what police describe as a "prank gone wrong."
Police were called to reports of a shooting on Village Drive in Jackson on Saturday.
Jackson Deputy Police Chief Deric Hearn said Christopher Patton, 15, and two passengers, later identified as Derreon McGowan and Jakuious Galloway, pulled up in front of the home of Joshua Davis, 16.
Patton and the two others were wearing masks and toting water guns, which police said looked like real firearms, at Davis.
According to local media, Davis then pointed a real gun at Patton and shot him a single time in the chest, killing his friend.
The Jackson Police Department (JPD) believes the shooting was justified.
Police said all those involved were friends and described the shooting as being a "prank gone wrong," according to WLBT.

An 18 Year Old can be SENT TO WAR by U. S. Guv. Is He/Her SENT TO WAR WITHOUT a GUN/WEAPON? NOPE.


As per the usual oversimplification and convenient omissions, forgot the ten weeks of intensive training the military provides, with testing and monitoring throughout to weed out the incompetents and nutcases. But then so does everyone who misses the "well regulated Militia" bit in the 2nd as if it said "wul ergaberted mersha" instead.
It's so legally and legislatively overlooked they may as well have written that verbatim.
