Seriously? Again?

OMG! This sort of thing is becoming all too commonplace these days.

I was not going to post of this tragedy but some things need saying…..at least one more time.

Yes we have yet another senseless shooting that kills….gun violence.

It is sad that this needs reporting again.

This time it is in Virginia again……remember the Virginia Tech shootings from years ago?

A longtime, disgruntled city employee opened fire at a municipal building in Virginia Beach on Friday, killing 12 people before police fatally shot him, authorities said. At least five other people were wounded in the afternoon shooting, including a police officer whose bulletproof vest saved his life, said Virginia Beach Police Chief James Cervera, per the AP. Five patients were being treated at Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital and a sixth was being transferred to the Trauma Center at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. The shooter opened fire in Building 2 of the municipal center, which is adjacent to City Hall. The building houses the city’s public works, public utilities, and planning departments, according to City Councilwoman Barbara Henley.

Megan Banton, an administrative assistant who works in the building where the shooting happened, said she heard gunshots, called 911 and barricaded a door. “We tried to do everything we could to keep everybody safe,” she said. “We were all just terrified. It felt like it wasn’t real, like we were in a dream. You are just terrified because all you can hear is the gunshots.” Cervera identified the shooter as a disgruntled employee of the Public Utilities Department. He did not release his name.

Of course the media is all over this and the constant speculation is wearisome….why?

Yes it is news….but they pretend that their over-reporting will help the nation carry on a debate about guns and violence……it is crap!

Reporting has done NOTHING to change the culture of violence this country lives under…..gthe people that have suffered from this violence have done more to move the debate forward than all the speculation and redundancies of the MSM…..

This country will never move past the violence and the deaths…..so move on to something else…….bitching and whining will save NO lives…..live with your shitty decisions on this matter.

Sorry that this horrible news could spoil your Saturday….

  1. This is the 150th mass-shooting in the US in 2019.
    I will type that again. The 150th. In five months.
    And it is only the 1st of June.
    Good luck, to all my friends in America. It’s never going to end.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      1. I am gleeful with every piece of news that the NRA is falling apart.

  2. The NRA is not the boogeyman that you want it to be. It’s an easy/lazy scapegoat……but the NRA-ILA has had far less legislative success that other like minded organisations.

    The killing wont stop until or unless we take responsibility for the selfish, entitled culture that we have wrought. Guns are irrelevant to the actual problem.

      1. But your words are those spoken by an outsider to that group….and should be taken the same as a rightwinger would day of a group you belong to, no?

        Amazing how gun control groups can’t muster the same membership….

      2. It is easy to get members when you lie and make false claims….but that is just my take as an outsiders than owns many guns……chuq

      3. And the group has only the owners best interests at heart….I do not see it from their rhetoric…but then I could be mistaken…but never assume that I am for gun control….I am not. chuq

      4. Besides my point was the reporting of the incident/s not the membership of the gun lobby…..150 shootings this year and it is June….cannot wait for December. chuq
