The sin is not the cray-cray. The sin is that he was given an instrument of mass murder by the Republicans.

I was commenting on that elsewhere. Infanticide seems to have become an MO among right wing extremists. At Christchurch children were among the targets, in Norway children were exclusively singled out.

From a CNN notice on my phone -
Nine people have been killed in a shooting incident in Dayton, Ohio, according to police.

Dayton Police Department said the suspect in the incident is dead as well.

At least 16 other people have been injured and are being treated in local hospitals, according to police.

The police said the FBI is on the scene to assist in the investigation.

This paragraph is now becoming common in ABC news reports to explain why there has been yet another US shooting:

"Mass shootings are common in the United States."

I'm sure that when this is updated it will appear there as well:

After reading this it sounded like a copycat incident, planned, the guy also came with ear mufflers on and some AK.

From our NoFo local news website-

This is the real ‘American carnage’
By Denise Civiletti - Aug 4, 2019, 8:07 am

https://riverheadlocal.com/2019/08/04/t ... n-carnage/
We went to sleep last night processing the day’s news about the latest mass shooting in the U.S. By the time we woke up this morning, there had been another one.

At least 29 people dead, scores more injured, in less than 24 hours, in shooting sprees by two deranged men in U.S. cities 1,600 miles apart.

Families doing back-to-school shopping at the local Walmart in El Paso. Young adults enjoying a night on the town in downtown Dayton, Ohio. Suddenly shots ring out, chaos ensues, innocent people are slain.

Shoppers at a Walmart, people strolling along a downtown street after dinner, families attending a popular agricultural festival, fans at a music festival, people at work in an office, worshipping at church, in a synagogue or a mosque. Children and teachers in classrooms.

The El Paso shooting was the 21st mass killing in the United States in 2019, according to the AP/USATODAY/Northeastern University mass murder database that tracks all US homicides since 2006 involving four or more people killed — not including the offender — over a short period of time regardless of weapon, location, victim-offender relationship or motive.

That makes the shooting in Dayton the 22nd mass killing in the US this year.

The first 20 mass killings in the US in 2019 claimed 96 lives.

I skimmed his screed. (To me these things don't qualify as a "manifesto" because there's no coherence or cohesiveness in them. Just hate.) Like some of the other killers before him, he's arrogant enough to think he knows what the problems are, but posts a screed in which it's clear he's just hateful with no thought process. That's why generally I don't even bother. There's no logic, no reason, just hate. And hate in someone with virtually no experience of life. But lots of arrogance nonetheless.

This bugs me. I love Chris Murphy. After Sandyhook he came out loud and clear for control of weapons of mass murder. Now he doesn't mention the G word. Ambiguous. Could be he want to lock up all the crazy people, who knows. Damn this political double speak. If this isn't the time to talk about gun laws and the Republic crime of not passing them, there is no time.

This is what I'm talking about when I talk about old-politician speak and new politician speak. Our communications have changes, in style and distribution. This crap has to end.

Uh, just because he didn't say "guns" in that tweet doesn't mean he isn't saying what you want him to say. If you think Murphy is an enemy in the fight against the gun lobby, you don't know a friend when you see one.

I don't think there's any ambiguity in Chris Murphy's stance on gun violence. He's been a leader in trying to get these weapons of war off of our streets and out of our homes. He's authored the legislation to begin to deal with this. The GOP stops it all.

I don't know what you read. I love Murphy; I stated that in my post. I stated that he is a tireless advocate for gun control.

As I clearly stated, it's the language he used in this tweet and that the MSM and politicos are using today. The absence of the direct terminology is horrid. News jerks are asking what's to be done, and politicos and LE and doctors are saying, "Gosh, something."

Graham did the same thing. "Do something," and we're having a debate about whether or not he meant guns or incarcerating mentally ill people. Because it's too fucking vague at a time when the nation has been lied to repeatedly by the R's, saying this is about values and mental health.

This is the time to be direct. I believe the country is ready for it. But we are failed by squeamish politicians and media. Again.

I note that Bernie mentioned the G word today on facebook. Proud of him for that.
