If you can find an example of a black person killing black people just due to the hate of the black race please let us know.

And the weird thing is your response about oh good thing this can't be charged as a hate crime, which we definitely don't know yet, It's just a really strange thing to post.

Kind of disturbing. It's like oh good those gays can't get a hate crime charge out of this. So fucking weird
That was my point.

The fact is that the true use of your analogy is that it is as if a white guy shot up some black people and then claimed to be black just to escape the hate crime charges. And of course you would go along with that false narrative..
Hell no.

Congress would protect themselves with enacting strict laws while the rest of the country continue to face gun violence on a daily basis.
And then you have that other factor.... people are just plain nutz. No one, NO ONE should be allowed to own or carry a gun. NO one is stable enough to own any gun, not in America.
Of course there are laws keeping gun toters out of the halls of congress. MTG, I hear, walked right by the checkpoint, couldn't be bothered to comply with the rule.

I agree 100% that nobody in America should own much less carry a gun, been purveying that message for years now, glad to see there's at least one more person doing so, that I am not an army of one! ;)

McCarthy has already said he'll rescind those rules when he's speaker. Oops, I mean "IF" he's speaker.

Oh really? Well this is one way to get rid of the MAGAtard congress members, they’ll get charged for assaulting fellow members when they get an argument and pull out their gun on he house floor. They’ll get shot by capitol police. Oh so sad.

I was trying to figure out a good analogy...

Old school Italian crime bosses didn't kill other Italian crime bosses because they are Italian. It's because they are rival bosses. Modern day urban gangs are the same. It's a business/turf disagreement.

More startling info about the Club Q shooter, and why it was entirely preventable. It's not just alarming, but angering.

And in California 10 are dead and another 10 in hospitals with conditions ranging from stable to critical.. One suspect who fled the scene and has not been caught yet. Happened inside a dance studio near a Lunar New Year festival celebration in Monterey Park (7 mi from downtown Los Angeles.)

Nope. Something we totally can't do anything about.

This one hit especially close to home for me because I grew up in the area. Woke up this morning to a bunch of voice messages left on my phone. We still have a lot of family and friends in the area. We checked in with a majority of them, but still haven't been able to reach some.

The police just had a standoff with the probable shooter in Torrance. It's odd because one article says the suspect "may have shot himself" in his van during the confrontation. The next article then says they are searching the van. Nothing says they have a dead body, and the suspect has not yet been identified, though the police have said they know the identity, but don't want to release it while the suspect remains at large. I suspect this will get cleared up in the next few hours.

The article below says the van had a deceased man who was wearing that same hat as the one in the picture that was released of the shooter and that the police heard the shot inside the van after surrounding it. More in their next update.

This happened a block from my gym... they got him at the corner of Hawthorne and Sepulveda. I was at the gym when it happened.

I've never seen so many helicopters outside of a military op. Holy crap.

The shooter was 72 years old! What on Earth do you suppose his motive was?
