Really, no one is talking about what happened today?

10 dead, 10 wounded in shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas, explosives found on campus: Officials

https://www.yahoo.com/gma/active-shooter-incident-santa-fe-high-school-texas-141104621--abc-news-topstories.html

Under Texas State Law, minors are prohibited from accessing firearms unless under direct adult supervision for hunting and sporting activities.  Since the shooter is under 18, the father who owned the firearms needs to be investigated.  If he did not properly secure the firearms then he needs to go to jail for this.

Unlike old style combination dial safes that take some time to open, the newer models have keypads and fingerprint readers.  There is really no excuse for people to leave firearms unsecured around the home.

If a burglar broke into your home through a window while you are sleeping, you only have seconds to react. Have to grab that piece in the nightstand. Spray and pray.  ;D

Castle Doctrine baby.


If the burglar easily gained entry through your window, it means you did not properly secure the entry points to your home.

Your windows and patio doors can be reinforced with smash-proof film, upgraded locks, and window/patio door screens replaced with light security screens.  Alarms, flood lights, and window bars can also be added.

Good point Mo. The person shouldn’t have easy access. ;)

"I grew up with guns, and I like owning them. So does my husband Mark. It’s an interest we’ve shared ever since we met. It’s part of my heritage as an Arizonan and it’s my right as an American. Being able to shoot a gun is something I haven’t been able to do since I was shot – because my right arm is paralyzed, and I’m less mobile than I was." - Gabby Giffords, who now speaks out for the advocates of banning all guns.

Here is Gabby smiling, posing with an AR-15, and a target of a teenager she shot repeatedly.

So here we are 4 months later, several elections, and what has changed?  Nothing, so predictable.

Must act now. Too weak to stand up to the NRA like he said he will.

True, that on a Federal level, nothings changed. The States have tightened gun laws since Parkland. Outside of what the States have done, what precisely should the Feds do?

(PS - Ban "assault weapons" isn't a solution, so please don't start with that)

Video clip from 3.1.18 (not to long ago)

Trump tells congressman that he is afraid of the NRA. Another congressman tells Trump he under estimated the power of the NRA. They have great power over you people. They have less power over me.

I didn’t make it up. Check it out. You know me. I don’t make things up.

The video is only 1 minute. MUST WATCh NOW.

Yes, this is progress,  well done, only 36 shot and 7 fatalities....buuut its less then last year!!!  Where are the kids protesting this?....at the beach.  Nothing changes, nothing done.

36 people shot in Chicago over Memorial Day weekend, marking a reduction in gun violence

CHICAGO — Police in the nation’s third-largest city said 36 people were shot —including seven fatally — over the Memorial Day weekend, slightly less gunfire than the city has seen over the holiday weekend in the previous two years.

The city tallied six murders and 44 wounded over the weekend — what has historically been one of the most violent times of the year here — last year, and seven murders and 61 shooting victims during the 2016 holiday weekend, according to police.

The reduction in gun violence comes as city officials are trying to turn the corner after two horrendous years in which Chicago recorded 650 murders in 2017 and 762 murders in 2016 — more homicides than any other U.S. city and a level of gun violence more typical of the late 1980s and early 1990s when many major metros were battered by the scourge of gang-fueled drug violence.

My exact point, this is old news even though it was hardly reported...22 people!!!  Could it be it was not juicy enough?  Not enough children victims?  Didnt happen in a "white" neighborhood?  Was not done with a scary "assault rifle"?  Not enough people actually died?  What a load of crap, the stench of hypocrisy.  Nothing will change.
