@Thom_Hartmann I actually did a study of this; I compared gun ownership versus killings, nation by nation, and there was no relationship statistically. But there was a relationship between homicides in a nation and the Gini index — that’s what we measure inequality by. gregpalast.com/florida-hondur…
@Thom_Hartmann What all these shooters have in common, they're young white males who are losers who have nothing to lose. gregpalast.com/tee-jay-james-… #DaytonOhioShooting #ElPasoShooting #GilroyShooting #RacistInChief #EnoughIsEnough

It should not be legal to buy a weapon of war that can shoot 15 people in under a minute.
It wasn't legal to buy such a weapon in California where the #GilroyShooting took place.

Men under the age of 25 do not have a fully developed prefrontal cortex.
Their judgment and impulse control are severely restricted.
Maybe men under 25 should not be able to buy weapons, since they are half of #massshooters in the U.S.

A 19 year old like Legan without a fully developed prefrontal cortex should not be able to go to a different state and buy a weapon of war.
Period.

#MyGunStory

I was still an EMT during DC Sniper Shootings. For 23 days in October, we had to have armed police, ATF & FBI agents accompany us on calls.

I responded to Pascale Charveux, dead on scene, head shot.

The snipers killed 13 w/Bushmaster AR-15 & terrorized MD/DC & VA.

2) I mean no disrespect to Mr Charveux's family. He was from Haiti. He was working that night, driving a cab. MPD turned us away. Mr Charveux no longer needed our help.

I know he had a family who loved him. A wife. Children. Who never saw him alive again.

3) That SAME night, two Sheriff's deputies in another country were shot in the head by a mentally ill man w/a gun. They were serving a warrant. One was a grandfather. Another just back from maternity leave. Her son never really got to know her.

OMG >> MASS SHOOTING AT #GILROY GARLIC FESTIVAL. POLICE SAY THE SCENE IS ACTIVE. Prelim reports - white male gunman.

Gilroy is south of San Francisco. Mostly a working class area, in the heart of California farm country. Lots of immigrants and families in attendance, no doubt.💔
3 dead. If #GilroyGarlicFestivalShooting turns out to be another Nazi attack, what then? Demagogue POTUS just keeps doing fascist rallies? Continues his racist attacks? Repubs keep denying reality?

Trump’s opened a Pandora’s box of hate. If he was once, he’s no longer legitimate
#GilroyGarlicFestivalShooting UPDATE: 4 Fatalities, including 1 suspect, shot by #Gilroy police. Chief says shooter had a rifle and broke into the festival by cutting thru a fence. Police now following leads about another suspect, whose involvement is still unknown. 15 injured.
