    I had forgotten about this one: (March 2017) Some more good insight:

    Gun Violence in America

    Rabbit has regularly defended these white supremacist rallies as "free speech" rallies and sees nothing wrong with asking why there are so many Jews in the media. He follows numerous right wing conspiracy theories. He's showed his cards plenty of times.

    2018 has been deadlier for schoolchildren than service members there was this WaPo article on it but I didn't see it posted in this thread yet

    How can you defend yourself from Home Invaders Coming To Rape and Kill Your Family if you don't have loaded guns stashed around your house in strategic locations?

    Pulse Nightclub Shooting in Orlando

    today's mass shooting reminded me of this good On The Media story I heard last month about what actually happened at Pulse and why Mateen went there. It came out after the case against his wife completely collapsed when her "confession" was found to be been coerced https://www.wnycstudios.org/story/on-the-media-2018-04-13/ He actually went to a couple of other clubs first, and was just googling "nightclubs" on his phone. There's no indication that he knew Pulse was a gay club until he walked in. edit: the story also covers how the whole Stuebenville thing blew up and how there wasn't really a cover-up there

    Specifically the school shootings I don't think so, but other shootings and violence absolutely. this topic I posted back in February: A little while back, Dylan Roof. There were some anti-government extremists who murdered a cop during the original Cliven Bundy stuff. There have been planned parenthood shooters. Just yesterday it was reported that the Las Vegas shooter had been talking about FEMA camps and the government coming to take his guns. From PBS last year: U.S. sees 300 violent attacks inspired by far right every year

    Gun Violence in America

    It's a dumb tangent, but your argument makes zero sense anyway. Strange how you completely avoided addressing that. Something something doesn't fit the narrative. In case you missed it, 2019's comment and the report I linked are about ideologically driven violence. Saying "well blue cities have higher rates" has nothing at all to do with that. Violence committed by right-wing extremists for right-wing ideological reasons, like the murderer you keep downplaying at Charlottesville or Dylan Roof or a number of other examples, has been on the rise for years. Where is the comparable left-wing violence that 2019 is so afraid of if he was doxxed? A guy getting booed out of Cheesecake Factory?

    Holy shit you're actually straight-up defending him and attacking the victim. Go back to 4chan with your buddy.

    If Toomey -Manchin couldn't pass after Sandy Hook, what sort of compromise do you imagine could ever be reached?

    If there's a fire code reason (e.g. why doors open out from the classrooms, for constant egress), you don't just override that because this country is too dumb to do anything about guns. It also costs money to do that, and as we've seen from mass teacher action in a number of states now, schools don't exactly have extra money.
