    We're going to hear conflicting details for several days, if not longer. Better to focus on what we know for certain:
    • A young adult murdered his grandmother and then murdered almost two dozen others, mostly children, at an elementary school
    • The police - or a "good guy with a gun" - didn't stop it
    • We have too many guns in our country
    • We suck at mental health
    • We suck
    I gotta little bit of smoke and a whole lotta wine...

      They have a hard job, are underpaid, don’t get the appreciation they deserve, don’t have the equipment they need, etc, etc.

        Something has to change.
        Collectively, Americans are not responsible enough to have easy access to firearms -- which is apparently "our god given right!!" so nothing can change.

          Something has to change.
          My thinking has evolved a lot over the last few years as this problem keeps getting worse and worse.

          We need to repeal the 2nd amendment. We need to eliminate virtually all legal means of carrying a firearm outside of your own home/property without strict, expressed and explicit permission otherwise. We need to tax firearms and ammunition heavily, including the means and methods of DIY production. We need heavy licensing and insurance requirements for all firearm and ammunition possession/ownership. We need to enforce all firearm current and additional laws with twice the vigor of the drug war. And most importantly, we need to eliminate republicans. And none of this will happen in the lifetime of anyone reading this.

          Any takers on when and where the next mass shooting takes place? Because we ALL know this is happening again, probably within the next couple of weeks.

          • we just went through two years of parents storming school boards calling masks child abuse
            Yes, yes we did. We have some royally fucked up priorities in this country.

              The Denver story is actually a little more interesting than that.

              Apparently in the days following Columbine, the NRA leadership had some meetings about this very issue. Someone at those meetings recorded them, and twenty years later a reporter from NPR got them and did an interesting story about the internal discussions of the NRA.

              Here's a link to that story. Sorry if this has already been posted.

              • As long as we have a SCOTUS that’s willing to reconsider precedent willy nilly while saying it’s committed to an originalist interpretation of Constitutional text, perhaps it’s time to reconsider precedent that write the “well regulated militia” language out of the 2nd Am.

                • how on earth did we get liability insurance mandatory for car ownership and why can't we do the same for guns?
                  This is my favorite solution. No proof of insurance, no purchase. That likely would have shutdown the Buffalo and the Texas shootings in their tracks. And that insurance is going to be fucking expensive.

                    Say what?

                    SSRI medication use is the highest in the US per capita compared to anywhere in the world.

                        I think the tax idea on guns or ammunition is a better idea than insurance. What are you going to buy insurance for? To pay people damages when you shoot them? I think there is a pretty strong public policy argument against having people buy insurance that covers intentional, violent acts like shooting people.

                          I don’t think you understand how insurance works. It wouldn’t cover a deliberate act like what happened yesterday, and insurance doesn’t change liability at all.

                            She corrected it later to well-regulated. She made an honest mistake typing it out.

                              Change the law. We can do that. We make the laws. Make the insurance cover a deliberate shooting. Force people to carry it. I bet the cost is so expensive NO ONE could afford a gun anymore. And you know what? Good. Fuck them.

                                What are you going to buy car insurance for? Because you're going to go out and hit someone's car on purpose?
