Another mass shooting in America. As of this morning, nine dead and 26 wounded in Dayton.
The NRA and gun nuts must be impressed with this one, because the news reports say the killer managed to do all that carnage in about one minute before the on-site police killed him, which has got to be a new record. The firepower available to the average American is wonderful, and inspires us to achieve new records in how many people can be killed in the shortest amount of time.
Of course, we must blame the victims in this instance since they did not do their part to avoid being shot by carrying a weapon of their own, but even if they were, which is likely since Ohio is an open-carry state, they still were outgunned, which makes their negligence in protecting themselves even worse.
The shooters in Gilroy and El Paso both identified as White Nationalist Trump supporters and both claimed that they were motivated to ‘stop the invasion’. Trump can be seen on camera joking with members of his crowd in Arkansas about four months ago about shooting migrants as a strategy. Could be just coincidence I suppose.
As usual gun sales spike within mere hours of these attacks.
