Oh, I know, those manufacturers of arms, after all, if they don’t manufacture them, why would they be so widely, available for we the people to get?
And, blame it on how easy it is, to get that license for a firearm, I mean, there’s, NO twenty-one-day waiting period for purchases, is there? No psych evaluations for those who want to buy one, to make sure, that they don’t go OUT and start firing off into the masses.
Or, how ‘bout, the guns themselves, after all, they are, what’s, dangerous, I mean, you can’t shoot your hands, making that gun gesture (bang-bang!!!), and fire off that killer bullet now, can you? nope!
how much we all, love our, G-U-N-S here!
Just, keep on, scapegoating everything and everyone else who’s, not directly related to this, but, it all worlds down to, how the Americans are, GUN-LOVING, avid supporter of Amendment TWO, oh, and it’s also because, nobody close to the higher up government officials had DIED of a gun firing off, nobody we know personally died in a massacre, so, we the government, don’t really, CARE!
So long as it’s not those who are related to us, whom we care about dies, we’re, all, okay, aren’t we???
Yep, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh……………hmmmmmmmmmmm, take this, (a toy gun), and, use it on someone on the streets, see what happens!
Like, shooting a DRUG addict with too much drugs, and having the individual OD, and then, giving the person an antidote, to TEACH the addict, right, on gun control…from the NYTimes that came with today’s papers…
The lengthy police response to a school shooting Uvalde, Texas, and the death of an armed security guard as a part of an attack on Buffalo, New York, supermarket last month have drawn fresh scrutiny to a recurring (and uniquely American) debate: what role should police and bystanders play in active shooter attacks, and what interventions would best stop the violence?
The debate has moved to Capitol Hill as lawmakers consider gun safety legislation that could increasing funding for mental health services, school safety and other measures aimed at keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous people. “What stops armed bad guys is armed good guys,” Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, suggested in the wake of the Uvalde shooting, echoing many other gun rights advocates over the years.
Researchers who study active shooter events say it can be difficult to draw broad policy conclusions from individual episodes, but a review of data from two decades of such attacks reveals patterns in how they unfold and how hard they are to stop once they have begun.
There were at least 433 active shooter attacks—in which one or more assailants killed or attempted to kill multiple unrelated people in a populated place—in the United States from 2000 to 2021. The country experienced an average of more than one a week in 2021 alone.
The data comes from the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training Center at Texas State University, whose , researchers work with the FBI to catalog and examine these attacks. Unlike mass shooting tallies that count a minimum number of people shot or killed, the active attack data includes episodes with fewer casualties, but researchers exclude domestic shootings and gang-related attacks.
Most attacks captured in the data were already over before law enforcement arrived. People at the scene did intervene, sometimes shooting the attackers, but typically physically subduing them. But in about half of all case, the attackers killed themselves or simply stopped shooting and fled.
“It’s direct, indisputable, empirical evidence that this kind ofp common claim that ‘the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun’ is wrong,” said Adam Lankford, a professor at the University of Alabama, who has studied mass shootings for more than a decade. “It’s demonstrably false, because often they are stopping themselves.”
And so, this still just showed, that guns is NOT what stops shooters, the shooters are what stop themselves, by shooting themselves, committing suicide, after they’d created havoc, deaths, and chaos in the society, and, if you take the availability of the weapons (in this case, the GUNS???) away, then, what will these attackers use, huh? Knives? Or maybe, they can become those, domestic terrorists, planting the bombs in populated places, yeah, and how easily access is it, to buy a bomb, I mean, unless you’re, really, mechanical and can build one from those do-it-yourself, bomb kits, or how to make bombs to DUMMIES, then, chances are, you won’t have the weapons of mass destruction to massacre someone.
And yet, due to how the Congress is funded by the NRA, there’s nothing that the people CAN do about it, after all, what funds the senators’, the representatives’ seats in the house and senate, is WHAT makes the policies. And there’s NOTHING any of us can do about it!
Despite how many shootings there’d already been, there’s still NO gun control laws being signed by the U.S., because the citizens believe firmly, their rights to bear arms, is way more important, the how these dangerous weapons are causing the lives to die off left and right, why the gun control laws can’t be passed, in the U.S., despite how many shootings there’d been already, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
May 14th, 2022, an eighteen year old opened fire at a super market in Buffalo, causing ten fatalities, three wounded, and during the process of his assault, he’d streamed it live.
On May 24th, 2022, another eighteen-year-old Texas teen first gunned down his own grandmother, then, took the AR-15 assault rifle to a nearby elementary school and opened fire on the random students, causing the fatalities of two instructors, nineteen students, with eighteen more wounded.
the second amendment right supporters…
Based off of the news report on June 2nd of the Washington Post, it’d only been five months into 2022, there’d been more than 250 large scale massacres, with more than four wounded, not counting the shooters. On average, there’d been no less than four massacres, this showed the severity of the problem.
The problem is not just severe, it’d worsened with time too. Prior to 2018, the yearly massacre hadn’t exceeded four hundred cases. In 2019, there’d been 417 cases, 611 cases in 2020, by 2021, there were, a total of seven hundred. What I observed, is how the political systems of the U.S., is responding to this problem that’s increased by severity by the year.
If you all watched the news lately, the senators from both parties are now, negotiating the laws of gun control, and they would have the means to get the amendment passed from the shooting deaths of the nineteen elementary age students in Texas. But ten years prior, the Hook Elementary School in Connecticut also had twenty elementary students who’d died in a shooting, back then, the public opinions are also supportive of the passing of a gun control bill, but the bill still, didn’t pass. The U.S. had been in the vicious cycle of shooting, mourning for the deaths, evaluation of the problem, drafting up the bills for gun control, not passing enough votes, for awhile now.
For many years, gun control had been an issue of debate that separated the politics. The NRA being one of the strongest forces of supporting the right to bear arms, stated how it is the citizens’ rights to bear arms. They have the political funding, and supporters, and, in election time, they can easily sway the votes. And, a lot of the politicians’ political careers are, led by the N.R.A.
For instance, after the shooting in the supermarket in Buffalo, New York, a local senator of the Republican Party, Chris Jacobs supported a stricter gun control law, to ban the sales of massive assault weapons, to lower the number of bullets per casing being sold, and increasing the age of purchase of semi-automatic weapons to twenty-one, etc., etc., etc., which started his own party’s more conservative members on him, this made Jacobs, who would’ve succeeded in winning another term to retire at the age of fifty-five, to not seek out re-election, because he knew what faced him will be the “funding of the interest groups, and the untrue negative messages on him that will attack his credibility.“
the supporter of a gun control amendment…
In actuality, the majority of Americans are FOR a stricter gun control laws, especially after the massive death of the random shootings. I also saw the recent U.S. T.V. reporter, interviewing the host of the gun shows, and they are all for a stricter gun control laws. But, all of these public opinions, can’t get turned into actual gun control laws in the end.
One reason, is that their passionate cause can’t continue, while it takes time, for the bills to get passed. And, after at least months of negotiating, the people’s opinions are replaced, by other items on the to do list. Oni the other hand, the public opinions are a generalized result, but, the election, especially the primaries, are participated, and led by the few political fanatics, which is why there’s this sharp difference, of how they usually don’t reflect the opinions of the public. And so, the political system of the U.S., can’t find a working solution to this repeated major threat to society.
Not only the U.S., but all the political systems in all countries in the world, may not be able to resolve the long-term issues of the internal affairs of the countries. The core of the problem rests in how strong the determinations of the people are, how much time, energies, are the locals willing to put in, to show their concerns toward these, varied, issues. In any systems of politics, most of the people are bystanders, allowing the chosen few to decide on an issue. We wish that the American will find a way that works best for them, to resolve the problems, and we all need to, be more passionate on the issues regarding the functioning of all of our, separate, countries.
And so, this is why and how the gun control laws, or any other laws have a problem, passing, because of these lobbyists, special interest groups, that are, funding the campaigns of the officials in office, and, surely enough, as those officials who have the right and the abilities to make the changes accepted the moneys, of course they’re all going to do what their sponsors told them to, because that, is how it works.
In light of the shooting in TX, from the New York Times, how the shootings in schools, affect everybody in the country, not just those who are directly involved, in the schools where the shootings had, occurred, written by Kimiko de Freytas-Tamura, Chelsea Rose Marcius, & Lola Fadulu…
Last Tuesday night, Luz Belliard sat on the edge of her bed in upper Manhattan in the room she shares with the nine-year-old granddaughter, Victoria, and thought about what to say.
Victoria, a third grader, was sitting on her own bed, which was covered with stuffed animals; she had already seen on the evening news that children her age had been killed in a mass shooting at a school in Texas.
Now, Belliard had to consider just what she would tell Victoria on their walk to school the next morning: Listen to your teachers. Get down on the floor. Remember the drills you do in class.
“She’s young, but she understands—sometimes too much,” Belliard said Wednesday outside Victoria’s school in Washington Heights. “To take your child to school and come back to see them dead, it’s not fair. It should not be that way.”
“It’s sad that a lot of children died that way. Those children had a big life ahead of them,” the girl said. “When I hear that kind of stuff it makes me scared.”
In New York and across the country Wednesday, children, parents and caregivers grappled with the aftermath of the deadly shooting in Uvalde, Texas, where an eighteen-year-old gunman killed nineteen children and two teachers before being shot dead by authorities.
They hugged their children a little tighter and lingered a little longer at drop-off. They could imagine too easily a gunman bursting into their own child’s classrooms. And they were once again faced with a haunting question: Is there anywhere in America schoolchildren can truly be safe?
Some schools around the country took extra precautions in the wake of the shooting. Schools in Texas and Florida banned backpacks from buildings Wednesday. Officials in states including Georgia and Virginia sent extra officers to schools as a precaution. In New York City, home to the largest school system, officials are considering ways to tighten security, including locking school doors after children have arrived for the day.
The shooting has cast a somber tone over the final days and weeks of the school year.
“Sometimes I don’t know what to say publicly,” Deborah Gist, superintendent of schools in Tulsa, Oklahoma, wrote in a Facebook post. “I feel a huge responsibility to use the right words. How, though, do I express the horror, outrage, frustration, disappointment, pain, and fear that an event like the shooting in Uvalde brings? It’s a parent’s, a teacher’s, a principal’s, and a superintendent’s worst nightmare.”
And so, this is how these things affect the children, because they’re in the immediate environment of all of this, and, there’s still the need for tighter gun control laws, to make the arms not that easily accessible to just anyone who wants to buy, and, these shootings still don’t just, affect those whose lives are altered directly, those with victims in the tragedies, it affects, everybody in the world.
I really don’t see the reason why automatic Rifles are necessary. I can accept handguns (self defense) and shotgun or regular rifles (hunting) but I don’t see a reason why automatic rifles are not being made harder to get ahold of…the only use of AR weapons is killing people..
For over 24 hours I have been alternately growling, grumbling, and had @#$%& coming from my mouth over Tuesday’s school massacre in Texas and the horrid responses of some public figures. I tried twice to put my words to paper, but I ran out of symbols 🤬 and quickly realized that my anger might be […]
What the U.S. needs is NOT gun-control, is people control, and stricter laws in getting a gun license, and the parents, locking those GUNS inside a combination safe only the parents know the combinations of, and then, maybe, there would be, less of these, cases in the U.S., off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
The Democrats Opened Fire, the Republicans Ignored, Biden Went to a Gun-Control Event, was Criticized as a “Total Joke”
There had been cases after cases of shootings I schools, it’d brought up the debate of gun control in the U.S., and yet, the Congress’s laws to control guns hadn’t made any progresses since the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, it’d caused a lot of the Democrats to go from “mourning” to “anger”, aiming their blames toward the Republicans.
The Democratic Congressman from Connecticut, Murphy stated on the 24th, “We took so much time in getting elected, and we are now elected, and yet, what awaited us, is not a country of peace, but a series of shootings, what, are we doing, as members of the congress?”
Comparing to the angers of the Democrats, the Republicans are still evading responsibilities, said, that the most important thing now, is to help the victims of the shootings recover, not the gun control laws; the Republican House representative from Texas, Gonzales stated, “the innocent children became victims of the violence, it’s heartbreaking, I shall face it with everybody”, and yet, not a word of mentioning of setting up the gun control laws.
Since the shooting on the 14th in Buffalo, New York, it’d caused the matter of gun control to resurface again; but Washington Post reported that after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting took twenty lives ten years ago, the almost birthed gun control laws, still hadn’t made any progress yet, and now, what sort of a progress the mass shooting that’s occurred recently has, it’s, not expected.
President Obama stated that he is to use all “his powers” to prevent the mass shootings after the Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14th, 2012, but toward the voices against it politically, the two Republicans had drafted up a gun-control legislation that both parties agreed with. Machin and Toomey agreed that gun control is necessary, and drafted up a bill for gun control that both parties could, agree on.
And, those on the inside stated, back then, after Obama had declared the gun control means, Biden held more than two hundred conferences with the local parents, scholars, the officials, the army and police forces, the local organizations, and set up the blueprint of gun control, and called up the senators too; but it was the two senators, Machin and Toomey who drafted up the bills, which made a former democratic congressman told Washington Post, that Biden is “completely incompetent”, that his role in the gun control laws was a “total joke”.
And, even though the two congressmen had already worked their best, to found a middle ground between the two parties, and those who want stricter gun control laws, and those who supported second amendment rights, the votes still didn’t pass in 2013.
And since this fail, the Congress had, never again, passed any laws closely related to gun control since.
And so, this is, how the availabilities of guns, made these shootings happen, if there are stricter gun control laws, and strict rules for owning guns, to reduce the chances of one being available to all who wanted one, then, maybe, there wouldn’t be as many shootings in the U.S., but it didn’t work!
So yeah, there are going to be, shootings in the future, and it’s still not because there’s no gun control laws, but because of how people can’t control themselves.
Another shooting , in the country of, Second Amendment worshippers, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
New York Times and other media reported, that the 36th St. Subway station platforms, on the morning of the twelfth during the morning rush, there was a shooting, and the gunman threw a smoke bomb as well, injuring thirteen, at least five were shot, and many of the injured suffered smoke inhalation.
The police is currently trying to catch the man, in an fluorescent orange worker’s vest, who was suspected to be the gunman.
At 8:30 in the morning on the twelfth, the police were called, and rushed to the thirty-sixth stations where the D.N.R routes meet up, the caller told of how there were smoke in the station. The United Press reported, that the spokesperson of the New York Fire Department stated, that there’s no sight of any explosives in the train stations.
The photos from the local scene showed several passengers down on the floors, and there were blood on them, with those nearby checking their injuries. The workers of the transportation department told, that the D, N, R routes will have the delays due to the investigations.
The New York Times reported, that there’s a hike in the city’s cases of shootings, that since the mayor, Adams took office, he’d listed gun control as one of his primary policies.
Based off of statistics, up to April 3rd of this year, there’d been 296 shootings, while last year same time was 260 cases.
So, there’s that tiny rise in the cases, probably due to how accessible guns are in the U.S. and, how a lot of the population in the U.S. are second amendment worshippers, and this was, another case of not having enough gun control in the U.S., after all, you can get the license for one too easily in the U.S.
What exactly, IS the cause of this “hike”, waive aside the second amendment rights, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
Before the year 2019 is about to be over, the Associated Press posted its statistic findings on massacres, and it showed, that the cases of larger scale massacres had reached an all-time high in American history, with the primary weapons of assault used being guns.
The large scale massacre, by definition, is a massacre of more than four deaths, not counting the shooter. The old record was the thirty-eight cases back in 2006, and this year, there had been, forty-one large scale massacres across the U.S., with over 211 fatalities, and of these, thirty-three were gun related.
Although the large scale murders in U.S. had reached an all-time high this year, but the fatalities still fell short of 2017. Back then, there were, 224 who’d died, the massacre at the concert in Las Vegas, was by far, the most serious massacre in U.S. history.
There’s, another trend, most of the larger-scale massacres are, no longer under the attention of the media anymore, unless, the murders happened in public, then, it would, get the needed, airtime.
The numbers also showed, that the shooters of these massacres knew their victims, and the motives of the shootings are usually related to family disputes, drugs, gang violence, or the conflicts between coworkers, and relatives and friends. But there were, the motives of some cases that still need to get cleared, for instance, at the start of the year, a 42-year-old man from Oregon hacked his own mother, stepfather, his girlfriend, and nine-months-old young daughter to death, and was shot to death by the police, and, the police still can’t find the motives of his murdering his next-of-kin.

Guns are the weapons that had caused the most number of deaths, and there were the hatchets, the machetes, and the arsons.
The professor of criminology from the University of Minnesota believed, that these large-scale massacres are, “contagious”, the more frequently occurring they are, there would be, more cases like them.
And so, violence breeds violence is what this showed, and, because there’s NO ban on the right to own gun (second amendment, anyone???), and, a lot of Americans are, gun-loving people, that’s why, there are, many cases, and especially now, how easily people crack, that’s why, there is, this influx of larger scale massacres this year.
Tragedies that occurred, at a celebratory event, the homecoming party, and there were, fatalities, from the Front Page Sections, translated…
On the evening of the 26th in Texas, a man started shooting at random at a party close to the Texas A&M Commerce campus, causing at least two fatalities, ten injuries, the suspect is still at large.
The school made its public statement early morning on the 27th, that the shooting did NOT occur on campus. The local police said, that the party seemed to have been hosted by a fraternity to bring in the new school year, they’re currently trying to confirm, fi there were students who were injured or killed, along with the motives of the shooter.
The local news station reporter, Whiteley stated, that this shooting occurred in a local night club, The Party Venue, in the suburbs, outside Glennville, close to Huntsville County, which is quite close to the Texas A&M in Commerce.
and here’s a video from the local news stations, from YouTube
The local sheriff’s department’s deputy chief stated, that there were about 750 people inside the night club, and that the homecoming party may have been hosted by a fraternity of the Texas A&M, but it wasn’t, a registered activity with the schools.
The spokesperson for the school, Johnson stated, “Our hearts go out to the victims of the shooting, we’re, praying for them”, and the statement also said, that Texas A&M is now, working hand in hand with the police locally to investigate the matter, to confirm if the students at A&M had been shot or not. The police is currently investigating.
The police department of Texas A&M tweeted, that the shooting occurred outside the school, and that there may be students who attend A&M present at the time of the shooting, they’re, looking further into the matter right now.
The Party Venue’s FB page stated, that they only provided the space. The owner of the night club stated, that the Business Department’s Fraternity had asked to rent out the space, to host a party. And that something had, happened there. But gave no more details.
The Dean of the Business Department of Texas A&M tweeted, that this was the weekend before the students were starting school, the local medical center told CNN earlier, that they did, receive the injured, but nobody provided the total number of people who’d been injured, nor the details of how the injuries had, occurred.
This may have been, yet, ANOTHER randomized shooting, and, that’s just it, the shooters, because they wanted to cause injuries, damages on a grander scale, are more than likely, to target these events, where there are, people who are, attending, like this particular, homecoming party, and that’s just it, the world became, more dangerous, because there are always going to be those, ticking time bombs, waiting to explode, and when the individuals were pushed to CRACK, this, is what happens, and it will, keep on happening, partially because gun is so accessible in the U.S.
