But please people rush out to buy more guns, ammo, and Trump flags because "mah 2A rights!" Not much is known about what exactly happened but it occurred in Jacksonville, Florida near a historically black college and the shooter wound up dying after barricading themself in a Dollar General store. It is unclear if the proximity to the college had anything to do with it nor has it been announced whether the shooter was killed by police or by suicide. This is absolutely sickening and I am beyond fed up. Guns are NOT more important than a person's right to simply walk down the street or into a store without being shot. There was just a mass shooting in Boston yesterday or Thursday too. Like it is so dangerous to be in America that other civilized countries warn their citizens not to travel to the US just like this country warns Americans against going to Russia, Afghanistan, Colombia, etc. That is how insane this place looks to the rest of the world. It is disgusting. ETA: 4 people were killed. . . I think including the shooter. The 3 victims were all black. The shooter had an AR-15 (shocker) and a handgun. The shooter left several manifestos which made clear that he hated "n-words" and the act was racially motivated.

Did you hear about the “sovereign state” guy in Pittsburgh who had so much ammo the COPS had to go get more?!

I wish I could say I'm surprised, but I really can't. Stuff like this, sadly, is normal. And, a world we just have to get used to. And, this last one is only about two hours from me. Mind you those are the ones we know about.

No we don't have to "just get used to" it. It is unacceptable.

That is horrible and I am so tired of this all happening so often, I tell you I wonder if I even ever want to leave my apartment again. I feel so sorry for the people and families involved. It would be great if people realized that color does not matter we are all the same because we are all HUMAN.
