When will this stop and why aren’t lawmakers doing MORE!!
Prayers and thoughts for all the people in the Permian Basin...
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.
“It’s kinda pointless talking about gun control when white people never admit that they’re the weapon of mass destruction.”
I haven’t kept up with this. Was one of the shooters a postal worker? Or did he steal the post office van?
He stole the van!
These hashtags though
This is sad
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.
I hope those AR-15s are locked uptight.
