It’s been relatively quiet for awhile, so this little spate is right on cue. Watch the massive push for gun control that is already following (and the unknowing public jumping ever more on the bandwagon). I’m not saying there should be no laws (although I am saying there is a hidden agenda that has absolutely nothing to do with keeping us safer) I’m just saying there is plenty of evidence of crime increasing in countries who have managed to take most everyone’s (except the criminals whose trade in weapons only make them even more money due to scarcity) guns away have not become safer. Plus I live in a rural area with goats and plenty of predators wandering through. You never hear anyone talking about this (cause they’d actually like everyone to live in the cities to be more easy to control - I have noticed country folk being distinctly more independent). Anyway, problem, reaction, solution. Yes, it’s easy to see where I stand on this.

The police identified the nine killed, and the suspect.
Questions mounted about the motive of a gunman who killed nine people in a popular entertainment district in Dayton, Ohio, early Sunday morning, less than 24 hours after 20 people were shot dead at a Walmart in El Paso. The gunman in Dayton was identified as Connor Betts, a 24-year-old white man from Bellbrook, a Dayton suburb. One of the victims was his sister, Megan K. Betts, 22.
Of the eight others killed, six were black. The police say they are continuing to search for a motive and did not say whether the gunman sought to kill his sister or was aware that she was in the area Saturday night. Mr. Betts was killed by the police, who responded to the mass shooting in less than one minute, the authorities said.
