Today's mass shootings

Only in America do you risk losing everything just going to the park.

These parents took multiple shots protecting their 2 year old and 7 month old.

Now they risk losing everything because of their injuries. A gofundme was set up to help.

How about all the 2nd amendment gun nuts pass legislation that would create a fund to help the victims.

Once again, they don’t care about anyone once they get born. And their guns, they really really care about their guns.

Rochester Hills, much like Ann Arbor, is generally thought of as “safe as houses”. Our time is short in the western Metro for a horrific mass-shooter event. :frowning:

At this point, it is quite clear that the biggest problem is guns. Unfortunately guns are not the only problem. It’s been obvious based on the sheer number of women and girls targeted and murdered by mass shooters for a long time (a good 20 years, now) that also a huge problem is misogyny.

People are mocking his comments, but THAT’S WHAT IT MEANS TO THINK HISTORICALLY… To be able to see the deeper roots of social/cultura/etc problems in a society, trace them back and pinpoint them, and then MAKE DIFFERENT CHOICES…

Cross-posted to the BLM thread…

[ETA] Also, he did not BLAME Nixon so much as he blamed a difference in policy decisions between Johnson (who sought to tackle such issues as Black poverty in cities) and Nixon who was much less robust on that particular issue (he did have some affirmative action policies and supported the formation of the EPA).
