Well, since Parkland there has been a mass shooting virtually every day. We just pay attention to the bigger ones. And in this case, I guess we haven’t talked about this one here at all.
"Gary Martin brought his firearm to a meeting where he was being fired on Friday, according to authorities. He likely knew it was possible he was going to be terminated from his longtime job at the Henry Pratt Company since he brought the weapon, said Aurora Police Chief Kristen Ziman.
She said he started shooting right after he was fired."
So now you business owners need to be more aware when firing people. You never know when they’re just gonna kill you for firing them.
Of course. Conservatives love helping criminals, from voting in Republicans who shred consumer financial protection bureaus, to turning a blind eye to Presidents who use the office to cut their estate tax bill. Because they hate America and Americans.
There are many things that set us apart from other industrialized nations, indeed from any other nation in history. But two things that set us apart today are the incredibly high per capita gun death rate and the frequency of mass shootings. The consistency of these statistics year-to-year demonstrates that they are not anomalies - they are a function of our society. Why do they occur? I don’t know. How do we decrease or eliminate them? I don’t know that either. But it is past time to have a serious debate about what can be done. Other countries appear to have had success, Australia being a prime example. Can we at least agree to discuss it, including the possibility of concrete action, without a majority of one side digging into the position that ANY action is an impermissible infringement on their rights?
