Just heard about the ongoing active shooter situation with "multiple victims" according to police, this one at a high school in Arlington, TX.

Let's ban schools. That will save so many lives.

I should have put an </sarcasm> tag to make it clear I was not serious.

I got you.

We're the only country that is permissive towards armed people in schools attacking teachers and students.

We have the response down to a science, but the prevention? Not even trying.

So called "constitutional carry" went into effect in Texas on Sept. 1, over the objections of most voters, and law enforcement.

"The new law — set to go into effect Sept. 1 — will allow anyone 21 years or older to carry a handgun in public without need for a permit or training as long as they aren’t otherwise prohibited from owning a firearm by law, such as people with felony or domestic violence convictions.

Most Texas voters opposed the idea of allowing people to carry handguns in public places without permits or licenses, according to a University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll conducted in April. Although 56% of Republicans supported unlicensed carry, 59% of all voters opposed"

In the case of school shootings, 80% of them used an unsecured gun they found at home.

lt doesn't help that the plague has been making things more tense for the last 1.75 years.

As a aside to this very serious topic, did anyone notice the markings in the parking lot?



Aparrently, the curriculum down there includes what we used to call “doing donuts”.

What's to notice.

That's a common occurrence in many city streets in many cities around the Bay Area.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Yeah, those people. Just thinking back through all the times I've seen people do cookies or spin their tires, I can think of people who were black, hispanic, asian, white, rich, poor, young, old, and me. None of those people were in Texas. Stereotyping is actually so fun, I can see why it's such a pesky little problem.

Well, up here, we had icy/snowy parking lots all winter, so it was easier than on dry asphalt.

I see yard lines and numbers painted too. Probably for marching band practice. (Or maybe football practice is really hard core there.) The white concentric circles might be something for the band for determining pathing when rehearsing a new routine. But there may be better explanations.

I think they were referring to the tread marks. But I was also curious about the painted lines.
