Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Did it really happen in March? Castro lives there and didn't report it as fake news. If so I can delete it. -> deleted

Here's another one in Laufen, Basel, when did this one happen?

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Not technically a shooting but white on white crime in Novi, Michigan. Two mothers fighting over the 'last' binder at a Walmart in their hunt for school supplies. Obviously, gun drawn




Incidentally, where's the bigotry thread directed at caucasians?

The same place as the bigotry thread directed at Negroids and Mongoloids.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Plano, Texas

Two injured, eight dead, including suspected gunman after a shooting at a home. Motive unclear and realtionship betwen shooter and victims is unkown. All what is known is that some of them were watching football, which might be totally unrelated to the incident.

Something going down in Vegas. Apparently a gunman has opened fire at a Music Concert with an automatic weapon.

This looks bad. I suspect it may end up having its own thread.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Not much info in the news as of yet. Reports of a security guard shot on the 32nd floor of the hotel, multiple shooters/killers (maybe one of them already taken down?), at least 2 people dead. One unconfirmed story of at least 20 bodies in one location.

The sound of fully auto gunfire lasts for about 10 seconds straight in the first video. Fingers crossed that those bullets went into the air and not into the crowd..

As long as I can remember the BBC only publishes confirmed news, and this takes a little extra time. Better the truth than a Twitter from a deranged fool.

Yes, but the same BBC link was posted to this thread more than an hour before you re-posted it.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

So who can explain to me now the rationale and justification for private citizens owning (and using) fully (or even semi-) automatic guns?
