I don't think most people understand the dailiness of #gunviolence in America. This incident happened within less than a mile of our house. There have been three men shot to death in front of our house in the past 4yrs as I've recorded in real time on here. That's madness.

The good news about the #PhillyShooting is no one was killed. Women and kids were extricated safely. The 6 cops had minor gunshots wounds, the hostages were safely extricated and the shooter was unharmed. That's all amazing. But the shooter fired hundreds of rounds over 8hrs.

This is another story of civilians with arsenals of weapons. That should be illegal. The cop who was shot in the head missed death by a literal inch. He has two small kids. In the #ElPasoShooting and #DaytonShooting more than a dozen kids were left motherless, some newborns.

Re: #DoSomething
People have been asking the government to “do something.” That almost sounds like we are clueless, like we have no idea how we could deal with gun violence in America. Like we are little kids, asking daddy to pretty please _do something, do anything_.
As if they know something we don’t. But that is not the case. We know EXACTLY what can be done. So does the Senate.
There are currently 2 life-saving bills that have passed the House of Rep., but are waiting for @senatemajldr & his Senate to bring up for a vote, & pass.
Both of these bills are VERY POPULAR and have research to back them up. Not pie in the sky. Not “something, anything,” but actual plans.

What are those?

The first is close the background checks loophole.

1/ Gun violence and visual censorship: a running thread.
2/ Remember that rare/unusual shot from Va Beach? Or this frame from Christchurch in New Zealand? Once again this weekend, horrific acts of #gunviolence on American soil. But between police and media, the scenes are completely sanitized. While carnage reigns, we see no blood.

Latest details on #ConnorBetts #daytonshooter thread. Twitter: "Flowers for Atomsk." Atomsk is an anime character, named after a novel Atomsk (1949) by Paul Linebarger, an expert of psychological war operations, an author of many books on psy-ops and propaganda. #daytonshooting
Linebarger's books include Psychological Warfare (1948) and Essays on military psychological operations (1965). Atomsk is named after Atomsk, a secret Russian military city in Siberia. More at the website by Linebarger's daughter here. cordwainer-smith.com/atomsk.htm
At Funsubstance, a user "atomsk" quoted a Walking Dead post-apocalyptic horror series episode, in which one sister, Lizzie, stabs another sister, Mika, with a knife, killing her during a zombie apocalypse. The mother then and asks Lizzie to look at the flowers, and shoots her.

I have no more words. I only have anger. President Donald Trump and Leader Mitch McConnell must call the Senate back from August recess immediately. We cannot afford to wait another day for lawmakers to address this horrific national public safety threat. #daytonshooting
In less than one minute, one man with a gun murdered 9 people and injured 16 others. This is not normal. The shootings that happened this weekend—the shootings that happen every single day in America—are not normal. #daytonshooting
The defenders of the status quo—advocates of the firearms industry and the politicians paid to defend it—will tell you that horrific acts of violence like this are beyond our control. This could not be further from the truth. #daytonshooting
