    I won't stop because lawmakers are making money by not regulating the sale and production of them.

    Another day in America. I hate feeling numb to these shootings but they're happening so often that I'm used to it. I'm also afraid because this can happen anywhere including where I live. :( It's not going to stop anytime soon. The people who have the power to make change aren't going to do it.

    I haven’t kept up with this. Was one of the shooters a postal worker? Or did he steal the post office van?

    I live about 100 miles from Midland/Odessa.
    Today I was finally covering the window of my office (so a gunman couldn't look in and see me in there if I had the door closed and locked).
    The lady across the hall from me, normally a sweet, demure thing turned into a demon. She said that "if they take our guns, only the bad people will have them." And... "A good guy with a gun is the only thing that will help."
    I said something like, "No one wants to take all guns. AR-15s maybe. Even military guys say no one needs an AR-15."
    She looked at me like I was a nut.

    Later I remembered that her middle schooler, a nice, goofy kid, who's "different" and sensitive, and friendless, and very much picked on, had taken a knife to school in 6th grade to defend himself from his tormentors.
    :perplexed::perplexed:
    I hope those AR-15s are locked uptight.
