Just another normal day in the usa.

7 ( +8 / -1 )

Gun Control, Gun Control , Gun Control.

When will it ever end. Guess “All Lives Matter” don’t apply here!

.........a coworker ran down the hallway shouting: “Active gunfire! Active shooter!”

Interesting choice of words for that situation.

And this is news? Just another normal day in the land of the free (to mass murder).

Like it or not, another vote for some elementary gun control, for semi-automatics at least.

So the what, was it 80 shootings per day in Chicago get no media coverage, but this one does? Is nobody wondering how the media picks and chooses to build a narrative?

California has the strongest gun laws in the US, including heavy restrictions on semi automatics.

No point a state having strong gun laws if the others don't. Buy at gun shows. Buy on the internet. Even just buy off the street.

I agree 100%. Although, "For California, it’s its own source state. Most of the guns we seize have been purchased in another part of California,” Snyder (special agent with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) said. “We do have cases, though, where firearms are trafficked from Nevada … It depends on the type of gun you want."

Buy at gun shows... . Even just buy off the street.

In California, all firearm sales or transfers must be done through a licensed firearms dealer and are subject to a background check and waiting periods. Even when both buyer and seller are unlicensed.

Buy on the internet.

Definitely possible but is a bit more complicated than it sounds.

No Protests & riots ?

No Protests & riots ?

Only if the shooter was police and the shotees were black. Haven´t learned the rule yet?

How is this even news?

Mentally ill. Tried to kill using a car, then a semi-automatic rifle. We need car control AND just to follow the existing gun laws. But California ignores laws it doesn't like, we all know that.

I find that a very depressing and silly comment.

Shooting incidents in the USA tend to hit the news when they occur in "public" places - post offices, churches, factories, schools, music festivals, etc. I don't recall any pattern of the reporting along racial grounds.

The everyday shooting incidents don't hit the news (family shootings, turf wars, etc.). These should perhaps be more worrying just based on the overall numbers involved. But because they largely involve the poorer sections of society, they tend to get ignored.

Regarding police shootings, in 2019, 375 white people and 235 black people were shot dead by the police in the USA. I don't recall many news articles or protests,
