Already this year the U.S. has had over 200 mass shootings and the Texas rampage is 27th school shooting so far this year and the Timeline of Texas school shooting: 126 minutes of terror.

In a state that is more worried about abortions than school kids.

Why Do You Protect Embryos but Not Children?

At least Beto got it right, Beto O'Rourke disrupts GOP news conference on shooting, while this typical RINO gets it wrong, Gonzales responds to Beto O'Rourke's outburst during Greg Abbott's Uvalde shooting update, while that legalised U.S. terrorist group can only offer "deepest sympathies".

The NRA should be listed as the terrorist organisation that it really is and it should have the crap sued out of it by all their victims, and almost every person shot in the U.S. is 1 of their victims.

Then the Texas school shooting suspect's grandfather speaks out.

At least this gun toting nutter didn't get to his targets.

Teen Who Took Gun To School Arrested After List of Names Found in Bag.

And some over there wonder why most of the world are appalled by these constant shootings happening with nothing being done except to hand out more guns.

Isn't the theory to have enough bullets flying that every one will hit another and thus nullify it? Kind of like the Kessler syndrome.

The hypocrisy of it all.

Firearms banned NRA conference Friday

And I bet it's not just because Donny and a couple of his RINO's will be there.

Trump, Abbott, Cruz scheduled to speak at NRA convention in Houston this weekend.

And then you get this moronic RINO nutter.

Rep. Paul Gosar blames Texas school massacre on ‘transsexual leftist illegal alien’.

Abortion over bullets, what a morally sick mob of hypocrites. :-(

While also in Texas state Sen. Gutierrez's message to parents: 'Go hug your babies', because you may not see them come home from school.

The stooge from Florida I posted a tweet from yesterday has outdone himself...



Can't get beyond that first sentence without stopping reading. I'd rank that as probably the worst official statement or at least in the top three from an elected representative in my lifetime, if it's not satire. I can't even tell anymore.

And "stooge" isn't an exaggeration: apparently he's the/a great-grandson of Larry Fine of the Three Stooges. How appropriate.

Every time I think US politics has hit a new low, something like this happens. I just can't grasp this level of thinking.

Of course we counter gun violence with thoughts and prayers and this is how that works.


I've NEVER Heard AnyOne Say: Thoughts and Prayers Counters/Stops/Reduces GUN VIOLENCE.

People HOPE Some Kind of GOoDness/Friendship/Help/Love/Needs Met - Introduced/Part of SomeONEs Life Can
Lighten Any Darkness One Feels and May Act Out.

Atmosphere of HATE Surrounding AnyONEs Life is Never a GOoD Thang.

HATEWorld has Always been Part of Life. MASS ; Instant Communication has Helped HATEWorld Be a Constant Companion
Seeping into Our Mind and Soul.

I'm Glad GOoD Thoughts and Prayers are Out There.

BATTLE ROYALE for Our Heart; Mind; and Soul is an Every Day; Sometimes Every Second Opponent.

Another victim succumbs... an indirect victim.

UVALDE, Texas - The husband of an elementary school teacher killed during a mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas has died of a heart attack.

Family members tell FOX 26 Joe Garcia, the husband of Irma Garcia, died Thursday - just two days after his wife was tragically killed when a gunman entered Robb Elementary School in Uvalde and opened fire.

I am sure is it 100% sincere. I'm sure he makes love to his gun collection, taking them to bed with him.

Personally I think the reason he wants guns is proof of mental disease and defect and more and more of medicine is beginning to agree.

How many members of the NRA do I know. Let's think on that.....

At least twenty percent of the US citizens I know, so well into double figures, but not a treble digit figure.

One of them was collector of old firearms, he musty have had at that time over 50 pieces.

Where are we up to now? Oh yeah. :-(

Texas official says police didn’t go inside Uvalde school because ‘they could have been shot’.

Oh and then there's this wannabe 1 of Donny's RINO's.

‘Pure nonsense’: Former NFL star Herschel Walker cops backlash for nonsensical gun rant.

Now that's a real nutter on so many levels, but continuing on there's that terrorist organisation that has no shame or morals.

In Uvalde, families grieve. In Houston, 300 miles across Texas, the NRA will hold its annual convention.

And then that great Myth of the ‘Good Guy With a Gun’ which has turned out to be nothing more but a delusional fallacy.

And then this. :-O

Loaded Gun Brought to Elementary School by 7-Year-Old Days After Uvalde.

Was mum packing the school bag again? Anyhow to finish this lot off is sadly just another stat to add to this madness. :-(

Now let's take a closer look at Greg "the mad" Abbott (yes Anthony, you have a sibling) who in his 1st year of being governor found out that there were more firearms in California than in Texas and chose to remedy that.

Child Gun Deaths In Texas Doubled Under Greg Abbott. Then Came Uvalde.

But he has cancelled his personal appearance at the terrorist convention so that he can spread some hypocritical B.S. around where it very likely isn't wanted. Then again you can't legally buy alcohol in Texas until you're 21yrs old or buy a handgun and yet 18-year-olds in Texas can buy AR-15s.

Abbott not attending Houston NRA summit, will speak in Uvalde.

And if these terrorists has any sympathy at all, then they would cancel their glorified gun show.

The NRA scaled back conference after Columbine out of sympathy; today, full steam ahead.

Then there's this sicko moron RINO gun nutter's lame old reasoning.

Boebert says 'when 9/11 happened, we didn't ban planes' in defense of gun laws.

Now for a little bit of good news bits.

Gunmakers Lose Big In Court After Push To Strike Down New York Law.

Sue them out of existence I (and many others) say, but this fellow has his head screwed on properly.

Man Giving Up Guns After Uvalde Shooting Goes Viral.

Though I'm 100% sure that there will be much more bad news to come.
