    Because there are mouthbreathers who wet themselves when he parodied Dump.

    Or the fact that suicides dominate gun-related deaths, which continue rising, yet mass shootings get all the media coverage. Talk about wrongly framing the debate (not from any of y’all).

    So Alec Baldwin being charged- it seems even more shady when you see the DA on fox getting her sound bites in. Clearly looks like she wants to run for AG or gov.

    a few actual lawyers on twitter had some threads going and I’m not sure the case is very strong. Looks like they’re going after him for his role as producer and actor.

    if he was a producer and took steps to make set less safe, then sure get him for that.

    Just making sure your post gets up twice. How terrible is this country that there's a threshold for mass shootings to be actual news. Or it takes an odd combination of events for it to be huge news (see Moscow's murder of 4 students by a knife).

    Follow up:

    A gunman killed 10 people at a ballroom dance studio amid Lunar New Year celebrations and then may have tried — but failed — to target a second dance hall, authorities said Sunday. An urgent search was underway across the Los Angeles area for the suspect.

    LA County Sheriff Robert Luna said the shooting at the Star Ballroom Dance Studio in Monterey Park left five women and five men dead and wounded another 10 people. Then 20 to 30 minutes later, a man with a gun entered the Lai Lai Ballroom in nearby Alhambra.

    Luna said it’s still unclear whether the events are connected.

    The incident in Alhambra “may be related,” Luna said. “We’re not quite there yet, but it’s definitely on our radar screen.”

    A male Asian suspect entered the Alhambra club with a gun, and people wrestled the weapon away from him before he fled, Luna said. Investigators are interested in a white cargo van that was seen in the area, he added.

    The sheriff declined to say what type of gun was recovered in Alhambra. He said investigators believe the gun used in Monterey Park was not an assault rifle.

    The massacre, which sent fear through Monterey Park and Alhambra’s large Asian American communities, was the nation’s fifth mass killing this month. It was also the deadliest attack since May 24, when 21 people were killed in an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

    Resetting the clock right at New Years (taps forehead).

    Monterey Park is a city of about 60,000 people with a large Asian population that’s about 10 miles (16 kilometers) from downtown Los Angeles.

    Seung Won Choi, who owns the Clam House seafood barbecue restaurant across the street from where the shooting happened, told the Los Angles Times that three people rushed into his business and told him to lock the door.

    The people also told Choi that there was a shooter with a machine gun who had multiple rounds of ammunition on him so he could reload. Choi said he believes the shooting took place at a dance club.

    Saturday was the start of the two-day festival, which is one of the largest Lunar New Year events in Southern California.

    Simplest compromise between the 2A morons and the rest of us: only women get guns, but they can have any guns they want without restriction.

    For the purposes of gun ownership, possession, and use, men will be considered non compos mentis, like young children.

    Note this immediately ends sexual assault as well.
