This is from the story as it appeared in the Chicago Tribune:

”It was Colorado’s worst mass shooting since a gunman killed 10 people at a Boulder supermarket March 22.”

A whole 7 weeks.  This is insane.

Well this one is in the springs.  The hotbed of GOP insanity in the state...  We like to spread the wealth....

I am sure if she had been there with one of her AR's from her office shelf, she could have prevented it.   Her likely response will be "if more people around there were armed, they could have stopped it".
Yep.  Because good guys with guns have superior aim and discipline.  And, because they wear white hats, they are never mistaken for the bad guys with guns.

Seriously, why do people think more bullets flying through the air is a good idea.  Then, the cops show up and how the fuck do they know who is a good guy and who is the criminal?

The mass shooting was far from the only one in the US in recent days. There were at least nine mass shootings in the country over the weekend that combined left at least 15 people dead and 30 more wounded, according to CNN reporting and an analysis of data
from Gun Violence Archive (GVA), local media and police reports.

Why does anyone even pay attention to these incidents?

It's like commenting on and fretting about the weather.

It ain't gonna change so just accept it and move on.

After stocking up on guns & ammo so you'll be safe.

I see that yet once again....the term 'Mass Shootings' gets re-defined as to fit someone's desired narrative.

{sigh}.....
El FBI no tiene una definición de tiroteo masivo. Solo tienen una definición de asesinato en masa. La definición más aceptada de un tiroteo masivo, entonces, es como un incidente único en el que cuatro o más personas son asesinadas a tiros.

I can never remember, is that a shooting at a Catholic church? Or is it when somebody shoots a fat person?

JBSF went to the Air Force Academy?

Holy shit, I didn't know that. It's insanely hard to get in unless you lost a parent in a war or are best buddies with a Senator. Failing those you have to be driven and intelligent. I'm impressed, that's a serious accomplishment for our JBSF.

Back when I was about to graduate from high school, I got this wild tick up my arse that I wanted to go to the Air Force Academy. I had some flight hours, I was half decent at drinking Moosehead beer and eating burritos, my mom used to work for the Air Force Academy, it seemed like a perfect fit. I spent all of three hours actually learning what's involved to get in there ...

Remember that Mike Ness line from Social D ...

Well I went downtown to look for a job
I had no training no experience to speak of
and I looked at the holes in my jeans
and turned and headed back


I looked at my grades ... mostly C's, about as much academic credential as three years worth of Moosehead and burritos would warrant and I realized that I wasn't ever, ever going to get into the United State Air Force Academy. But if I had straight A's and a brain unfuzzed by cheap beer and half-decent cigarettes, I still wouldn't have been able to get into the USAF Academy. So it's a big deal that JBSF graduated from there, a huge deal. Anyway, at least I still have Social D ... life goes by so fast ...

Well, he's smarter than to brag about all the recreational drugs he's taken over the years. That right there makes him a hell of a lot smarter than 50% of the people in this exchange
