    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Tots and preyers from the gov. and lt. gov. No doubt the Russian-funded NRA will soon join that chorus.

The governor of VA has the IQ and sensibilities of a road-kill gopher.

Best he keeps his mouth shut.

I've always wondered when it was going to ramp up. For a while, a few mass shootings here and there, but we have really stepped up the violence. It only makes sense, really, as whatelse is there to do with all of the guns if you can't use them?

From the CNN link:

Tuesday’s shooting happened as the US has recorded more than 600 mass shootings so far this year, according to the Gun Violence Archive. The archive and CNN tally a mass shooting as one involving at least four killed or injured, not including the shooter.

Wonder how many of these involved assault rifles.

Mass shootings have not eased up, I think we are headed for a record year. They don't all make national news.

“Just think, though, at how few shootings there would be if everyone were armed.”

We are not as far above other great apes as we would like to think. An armed America is not a polite America. It is a society consisting of hundreds of millions of armed apes just one hair’s breadth away from “having a bad day.”

Yes. Apparently his AR15 was in the shop for repairs.

There is not a lot of chatter about this shooting on my social media outlets. These are coming too close together and we are getting inured to them. Which is bad because the NRA will be more than happy to have us accept them and stop trying to fix it.

You gotta wonder how the Authoritarians plan to deal with all the gun violence once they're in power … do they just take the killers out back and shoot them or will they go all out for public executions?

Seems like public executions are already occurring at a ridiculous rate, and there's an argument to be made that by choosing to ignore the problem, the government is complicit…

Because it was a black guy with a hand gun. Wrong agenda

Not likely, they are very reliable rifles and he probably had 5 or 6 of them
