Let’s go back and look at an older thread, shall we?
For anyone wondering what the Freeper reaction to the shooting massacre
du jour was – I present – Code Toady!

Before we get started, I’d like to compliment long-standing Freeper
LUV_W for not changing his/her handle.
Obviously crafted from ancient hand-tooled artisanal stupid, this tribute to once hero / now despised GOP-e icon Dubya shows long-time dedication, and short-term memory loss.
Where are armed citizens to defend themselves?

From someone driving down the highway blasting away with a long gun? Um – yeah.

My local news is quoting the New York Times about 2 deaths…they are clueless!

How DARE they?? There will be a nasty letter about this tomorrow in the New York………….hmmm.

Just in time for the September reconvening of the House and Senate!
Imagine that coincidence!

I know I don’t get out enough, but
why do I never get an active shooter loose in my area?

Lucky at cards, unlucky at love?
“KittenClaws” takes exception to “Trailerpark Badass”s flippancy :
This is the last time I report on local happenings. I’m live in Odessa…and you bunch of chit chats don’t give a crap.

This diverts the discussion a tad :
FR is not the friendly community you imagined it was. I know.

And now, everyone – as promised –
“and you bunch of chit chats don’t give a crap.”
What exactly were you expecting, a bunch of caterwauling and FReepers losing their minds???

And – we’re off!
It seems you are bent. Maybe you need to straighten out and stop being such an emotional liberal wanting to cry over everything and demand everyone else joins you.

Yeah, you liberal whiner! Just because you’re in Odessa and a potential target is no reason to cry over things like mass murder and 17-month-olds getting shot in the face.
More below the mouldy fold…
And today, in False Equivalence :
But not a peep about the routine weekend shootings in Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, St.Louis, and SOUTHBEND…

“Jane Austen” agrees :
No, not a word about those shootings. And they occur constantly.

And then, “Dave W” pisses on the fires of their outrage :
To: Jane Austen
There is a world of difference between a shooting around public housing in some urban neighborhood and random shooting at dozens and sometimes hundreds of people going about their daily business.
Because people like you don’t get shot at some public housing in Chicago, but do get shot and killed at a concert in Las Vegas, or working at a desk in Virginia Beach or watching a movie in a suburban movie theater or just innocently driving down a road in Odessa.I assume you know that. I assume you know that a Chicago urban killing does not affect people the same way a mass killing affects people who like them are just going about their day bothering no one.
Do you get it now?

And now – back to our regularly scheduled clown slap-fight :
And maybe you should just STFU
I don’t give a krap!

Kitten got claws.
“Yossarian” weighs in :

I’ve had one happen at an event I almost went to (Gilroy Garlic Festival).
It isn’t fun checking in with friends that you know went to the event to make sure they got out alive.
Why don’t you reconsider your really, really dumb post, and hit the abuse button on yourself?
Code Toady isn’t gonna take that squatting down!
Awww, pooor widdle baby got told no one cares about what she cares about and now has a boo-boo.
Society has people like to thank for people being out of control.
They were never raised with any discipline and are now prone to childish outbursts.

“Where are armed citizens to defend themselves?”
Texas has come a long way since the Texas Tower shooter.

(Blessed be those who know the depth and breadth of ignorance. Cursed be those who don’t.)
And then, reality rudely interrupts all of the “Die Hard” fantasies :
Taking on a reported rifle with a pistol is not generally a winning tactic.

And a few posts later :
Pistol versus guy in a moving vehicle with a (reported) rifle.
Pistol v. rifle, usually guy with the pistol loses badly – consider also that legally a shooter is responsible for any bullet they fire. Their backstop in this case is a retail district.
You want to be responsible for killing some kid in a store across the street because you couldn’t hit the moving vehicle or you had a bad ricochet?

(Overwhelmingly superior firepower and the willingness to use it is the only proven peace solution.)
This has been your daily ration of the bleedin’ obvious.
And now, the obligatory $cientologist post :
We’ll see if the person was on psychotropic meds.

And now a reply, from a poster who’s never heard of the “Think Twice, Post Once” axiom:
Let’s celebrate. There are 6 dead now, one just died in the hospital.
