    i wandered over to 4chan after reading that the oregon school shooter posted there last night

    it's so weird when I read individual persons go for a hardcore libertarian men's rights stance, like I never remember that actual people actually think certain ways

    and to see bullied social outcasts go to 4chan and get trained into thinking this way like some extremely efficient terror cell

    Reuters is reporting 15 dead, 20 injured.

    America is so fucked when it comes to gun culture and I have no idea how it's going to get better.

    Yup, it's got to the point where my reaction to these things is a shrug and a sigh.

    Which is awful.

    Every time I read about something like this, it's like a kick to the chest.

    And for me it only gets more and more crushing each time.

    These are now so frequent that if it were any other subject we'd probably condense it into a megathread.

    I've already seen nonsense about how it's too bad that it's a gun free campus, this tragedy could have easily been avoided if everyone'd been packing.

    Makes me want to puke.

    BBC is reporting 13 dead.

    It's really depressing that we've got about a week until everything returns to business as usual.

    Well, this already is business as usual, given that we're averaging one of these a week

    Unfortunately there is the fact that all these people have died and it's difficult to even muster shock for them, which is just awful, and it's even more difficult to imagine that the loss of their lives will result in anything positive like change. Already there are the false flag complainers, the cnn analysts saying the schools gun free zone is to blame.

    My heart goes out to those in pain but if a dozen dead 6 year olds didn't have any Impact on America's gun culture, it is hard to imagine what would. It seems invulnerable, invisible.

    I hate to say this but maybe if Islamic extremists were to have bought weapons legally and used them in an attack it would be the only way anything would change, hooray racism

    If you want to bring it down to one a week you have to narrow it down to "only mass shootings that happened in schools".

    Technically a hurricane now, your estimate may be too optimistic.

    This is the second this week that I know of.

    North Dakota had one but the shooter was tackled immediately afterwards. The victim, the school's principle, was wounded in the arm and in good spirits.

    Until there is a gun in the hand of every adult male and ZERO gun free zones, the pro gun lobby will always advocate more guns. It will never end. Sandy Hook proved that.

    The school wasn't a gun-free zone. Public colleges in Oregon can't ban guns.

    John Hanlin, Douglas County Sherriff, is holding a press conference. He said that officers arrived to campus following a 911 call, engaged the suspect, and the suspect was neutralised after an exchange of gunfire.
    He will only say that the the suspect was a male who is now deceased.

    We can do that, sure.

    We can also recognize that guns are a problem that need to be dealt with.

    Just the concept of a gun free zone existing somewhere in the country is enough to keep the rhetoric going from the entrenched pro gun side, talking heads are already saying it was a gun free zone, and that lie likely won't go examined or criticised by the majority who feel that it conforms to their view that if only liberals would let people defend themselves with more guns, everything would be ok

    right now we have no idea if he was mentally ill

    and also the last big shooting in charleston wasn't at all provoked by mental illness

    its a part of the problem

    but here's what we do know:

    Someone used a gun to kill a bunch of people

    and guns are easy as hell to get
