I don't follow Rob Rousseau closely, I know he opines, and has a knack for the social media troll, but this slipped me by: Gun Con-Troll: How I Managed to Enrage (and Expose) Thousands of Right-Wing Gun Guys - Paste

Quote:
the AR in AR-15 stands for Assault Rifle, dummy— Rob Rousseau (@robrousseau) February 28, 2018
They came first by the dozens, then the hundreds, then the thousands—as you can see if you click that tweet. They told me I was wrong. They sent me memes, infographics, screenshots of Google searches, wikipedia pages, rifle manufacturer webpages. The dumb liberal journalist strawman they had built up in their fevered imaginations had been rendered flesh, and they were there to extract their pound of it. I responded by quadrupling down on my assertion that the AR in AR-15 does, in fact, stand for “Assault Rifle.” Nothing anyone said could convince me otherwise. Rather then give them the satisfaction of correcting me, I stuck out both middle fingers, Stone Cold Steve Austin-style, and simply allowed the endless waves of Chuds to wash over me, like a baptism.
Poetry.

Hahaha!
I like to purposefully say clip instead of magazine just to see if I can set one off.
It’s fine though, I’m sure these rational and level headed individuals wouldn’t fly off the handle in such an aggressive manner looking for a fight if you just let them carry their gun with them everywhere they go.

And if anyone says, ‘oh but they are just trying to be exact in this important discussion’ tell them real professional gun dudes call the automatic selection the ‘giggle switch’ so fuck right off with their we must be all exact and clinical.

I saw something a while back (wish I could remember the source) with convincing evidence that it wouldn't be too long before some ridiculous percentage of the country had a personal connection to at least one mass shooting, either by personally knowing someone or having connections to the area it occurred in. In my case, that was Parkland. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School wasn't built yet when I lived there, but it was a literal four-mile drive from my house to where they eventually built it, according to Google Maps.

Two confirmed dead now. Just awful. Of course, that doesn't even take into account the long-term casualties of the attacks via PTSD and various other illnesses years after the attacks. If I'm not mistaken, at least two people connected to Parkland (either students who survived the attack or parents of students killed in the attack) have ended their lives now.

We won't do anything, of course, because Mitch McConnell is an evil tortoise who would cause any rational, feeling human being to fail a Voight-Kampff test. That motherfucker has to be taken out of office next year, or at least the Republicans have to lose their Senate majority. Countless children's lives literally depend upon it. It sucks that we have to wait that long for anything to be done about this scourge, but realistically, that's where things stand. It's infuriating.

I got in early on that when one of TLM's best friends was at Columbine. We had just moved, and Daniel's family had just gotten him transfered there so he'd be at a better school.

It was a couple days before we found him and knew he was OK.

(3/5 were older white males, and the last category was mostly non-white college age males.)

They're happening too fast to even keep up with the last few days. People have lives. Just great, we're on the verge of normalizing mass shootings.

To be Scrupulously Fair, there is also a barrage of impeachment news making this task even harder. And there’s a Democratic debate tonight, because there wasn’t already too much to keep up with.

Sad to say, the mass shootings used to be shocking, riveting, but people have become desensitized to them - to the point of comparing # of victims and methods used - like amateurs compared to the more efficient killers. -__-

Two mass shootings at Navy bases in around forty-eight hours. Just awful.

The latest on the Pearl Harbor shooting

Gunman and at least 3 victims reported dead at NAS Pensacola

It’s not clear if the two shootings are linked yet, or what the motive of either shooter was. It’s being reported by other sources that the Pensacola shooter was a Saudi national, but the Navy itself apparently makes a habit of not releasing such info until the next of kin have been notified.

ETA: Piece from Adam Silverman of Balloon Juice on the context behind the Pensacola shooting.
