Another mass shooting, another hate crime, another attack against the LGBTQ.

“Since 2006, there have been 523 mass killings”

Shameful.

Gay on Gay hate crime?

Republicans and Trump lovers can blame it on anything, but the only reason there’s mass murder in USA is the guns.

Too much hate + Too many guns = Too Many Hate Crimes

There’s more mass murder at higher levels of lethality with guns than without.

A pretty weak attempt at deflection.

A gun can't shoot without someone squeezing the trigger. So let's release all prisoners because there will be no harm if there are no guns.

All hail the steel phallus!

I really tried to understand this argument but I couldn’t.

Could expand upon your theory a little?

I didn’t say guns weren’t a problem.

You didn’t not say it either. You just stated there’s mass-murder without guns as well, which while factually accurate gives the obvious inference to a literate person that guns are not a major issue.

Also a factually accurate statement: Guns enable higher levels of lethality and lower the bar to entry.

I'd also argue they're a method, not a reason.

They’re both a method and an enabler of mass-murder.

As has been proven many times over, the US doesn’t have more nutters, racists and zealots per capita or at least not enough more to account for the mass-murder spree we see happening. What it DOES have are guns. Lots and lots of guns, with almost no barriers to ownership regardless of capacity or power.

Im a 40 year gun owner and that is freaking insane.

So yes, guns and easy access to them are the issue, like we didn’t know that already.

But alas, we are in the “it’s too soon after the tragedy - thoughts and prayers please” phase.

Then we’re going to move on to the “let’s not focus on the past” phase.

And finally, huff n puff white boys will scream “2nd Amendment!” at the top of their lungs.

And how do you know if the attacker is gay??.. What a prejudiced, pathetic and childish comment..

Wrong. The gun didn't do anything. It was the person pulling the trigger that needs to be stopped at any warning signs. Stricter access laws. Any training laws. Any license laws. The firearm didn't do anything wrong any more than a knife or car or cleaning solution. These are tools which can be used for good and bad purposes.

It was the human who did this evil.

The FBI spends more time on Taylor Swift tickets and ropes at construction sites than they did on a guy who did this:

Aldrich was arrested that month on charges of felony menacing and first-degree kidnapping, according to the El Paso release.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report by the man’s mother that he was “threatening to cause harm to her with a homemade bomb, multiple weapons, and ammunition,” according to the release. Deputies called the suspect, and he “refused to comply with orders to surrender,” the release said, leading them to evacuate nearby homes.

So what happened after all that?

"no charges were filed".
