Depressing thought, I wonder when the conspiracy theories that these shooting never exist will dissolve into claiming those shot died for the constitution.

Indian woman killed by 'celebratory gunshots' at neighbours' wedding party - BBC News

Apparently several people have been killed by "celebratory gunfire" at weddings in northern India in recent years. For example:



Sadhvi Deva Thakur (left) allegedly fired celebratory shots at a wedding in November 2016, killing one guest

I guess we need to post the Onion 'No Way To Prevent This,’ Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens link every time this happens now.

Edit to remove stupid-long Onion URL that appears in the thread even though I post a regular short link - you'll just have to go to the Onion yourself to read it as I can't be bothered to fix their stupid-ass mega long link nonsense. :shrug:

I will get to thinking and praying even harder. Too soon to say guns, though. Not the right time - to every thing there is a season. Politicizing unavoidable tragedy.

Thanks. I didn't see that button, but I just copy-and-pasted the (reasonably short) URL displayed at the top of my browser. I didn't put any {URL} tags around it as :ff: normally does that automatically. But when the post appeared it was one of those mega-long things that looks as though an entire webpage has been squeezed into the URL - and it semi-crashed the :ff: page so that there was no {edit} button available. I had to do the trick where you get a template edit URL and then patch in the post number to fix it.

Maybe it's something to do with whatever it is on :ff: that parses the URL and its associated page, so that it can turn a URL into a headline? I don't want to repeat the experiment now and lock the thread up though.

The Latest: FBI alerted to YouTube 'shooter' post last year

Quote:
The leader of a white nationalist militia says Florida school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz was a member of his group and participated in paramilitary drills in Tallahassee.
That opens up all kinds of new questions. Such as:

1. Were there good people on both sides of this school shooting?
2. Can he be prosecuted, since he was a member of the well-regulated militia?
3. Did this even happen, or was it just another false flag with crisis actors covered by NDAs?

Flo has been offering thoughts and prayers for school shooting victims and the survivors and kin for years. It's what Republicans tell me to do.

Recently I changed tactics. I prayed to Jesus and asked, "Jesus, will you please use your omni-super-duper powers to personally intercede and prevent all future school shootings before they happen?"

To my utter amazement, Jesus answered my prayers! :cheer:

Unfortunately, his answer was "no." :sadcheer:
