Looks like another deep state antifa false flag. Conservatives are the real victims here.

It's also the third one with more than three fatalities this week.

Ya fuckin' ganderneck.
Apparently the El Paso shooter was an anti-immigrant radical environmentalist? What a weird ideological combo. .

Whatever happened to neo-hippies protesting oil pipelines and blocking bulldozers from tearing down forests?

Trump just called out violent videogames as a cause of the shootings. Gamers are gonna be PISSED.

Glad to know we're probably going to get another Black Ops montage out of the White House rather than helpful action on gun violence.

The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.

Heard some stiff ass pundit on the news in the other room trying to bring up the "video games cause violence" narrative and it seemed like whatever official he was talking to wasn't really having any of it.

If I'm not here, I'm doing Photography. Or I'm asleep. Or hungover. One of those three, anyway.

The current titlebar/avatar setup is courtesy of Ugly Americans, with a little hint of Apocalypse Now.

Instead we have Trump blaming mental illnesses and rounding up people.

How refreshing.

Nah. Funnily enough not one of Trump's accusers have died in two years of investigations.

Japan, Guatemala and Venezuela have all done the same thing. It's partially because of the risk of mass shootings but also because of the anti-immigrant rhetoric that some of these shooters used to justify targeting people from outside the US.

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
Didn't every other country implement some sort of gun ban / buy-back after a mass shooting except for the US?

Not every country but it's a common theme. Australia in 1996 with the NFA, the UK in 1997 with the FAA, Belgium in 2006, New Zealand in 2019... Not all had a buy-back too but countries do tend to make serious changes to their gun laws after these kinds of massacres.

As sad as it is, those people probably are going to get what they want. Two dozen preteens were massacred at school in Sandy Hook and the only real consequence was that the sales of the rifle used by the murderer skyrocketed. Not a single federal law or large-scale gun policy initiative followed. In 2012, the American people decided that the slaughter of those children and others was bearable and little more than an unfortunate inconvenience not worth doing literally anything over. In the eyes of many, that realization marked the end of the gun control debate. There can be a hundred more mass shootings and a million more dead by firearms, and it probably won't make the slighest difference. Facts lost.

Who was the fool that threw the basket in the pool?
In seeing a lot of people who - not here specifically - will discuss what political statement was made when something like this happens, I'll just say that I find it preferable to not give mass shooters the dignity of politicizing them beyond their philosophical violation of human rights. I think that if your idea of accomplishing political or religious goals is by means of massacring innocent people, you simply aren't worth listening to beyond how long it takes before we can figure out what exactly is going wrong in your sick mind. Because I don't believe that people who think it accomplishes anything are in touch with reality.

What if the attacker was clearly influenced by political groups?

Arguably, I've already addressed this question. But I don't know because the stated query is vague. Please elaborate.

There's definitely an argument to be made that giving mass shooters that kind of attention can create copycats and give them what they want, but we shouldn't just ignore their motivations. Studying, discussing and analyzing their beliefs and the political statement they want to make can help us understand these people, recognize warning signs, cut off avenues to radicalization, raise awareness and hopefully prevent some of these attacks from happening in the future. If a shooter is clearly motivated by far right ideals and racism, we should absolutely discuss how he got to that point and address the spread of these kinds of toxic beliefs.

Looks like Flee pretty much covered anything I would have said. It would be irresponsible to dissociate the shooter from their ideology when the ideology has such impact on their actions.
