Just be careful when going to public parks this summer, they just could become the new shooting galleries of choice. But be especially afraid of joining the crowds at the 4th of July fireworks displays.
There may be some truth to my comment here, but the whole idea is scary and sickening.
This is truly a disgraceful situation. Never had to worry about this when I was a kid. WTF has changed/ gone wrong? Could it be that the rich keep getting richer and everybody else is getting screwed in the arse? And I mean everybody.
There are also a lot more weapons floating around and a lot more powerful weapons. Naturally some people want to use these and try them out. It seems fairly easy to acquire them.
When I was a kid we worried about ‘the bomb’.
I give a cartoon such as this a ‘Like’ because of its truth. I can’t, however, ‘Like’ people being gunned down because of the killers’ mental/psychological instability and the victims’ race, nationality, religion, etc.
Sorry young lady, but it is your responsibility to arm yourself, so as to return the fire. The Second Amendment MUST be protected, despite the costs! (and to ensure profits)
The obvious solution is more guns. Support the NRA program Karbines for Kindergartners.
This is just silly! Guns don’t kill people. How many times do you have to be told, Guns don’t kill people. So people and children gunned down in school, in a church or mosque or synagogue, in a theater, at a concert, on the highway, or practically anywhere else basically committed suicide if they (the victims) went unarmed. Just remember, Guns don’t kill people. (Abortions kill people, but that’s different, of course.) /s
goComics ought to give cartoonists the option of which buttons to put on their comics. Like agree, disagree, like, dislike, and so on. Brooke McEldowney (long may he doodle) has the option of shutting off comments. A little more personalization would not be amiss.
Are their backpacks bullet proof? So sad that this is a real product now.
The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun. The question is, when another good guy with a gun shows up. How does he determine who is the good guy and the bad guy.
No Trump Disciple/NRA comments about how those dead kids are just the price of freedom and defending the 2nd amendment?
Because even research into gun violence is the same as total confiscation of all guns (except from criminals).
Welcome to the USA.
Americans used to value family. Now most value $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Where I grew up we had cops, dentists, doctor’s, warehouse workers, and grocery store clerks living on my block. You could go to college and not break a sweat about paying for it. It wasn’t about shareholders, it was about people, your friends and neighbors, humanity. Now not so much. I feel for parents who send there kids to school and have to fear for there safety. I am not a fan of going back in time, but this is one time I would.
It is not only schools that one has to worry about. Churches, synagogues, movie theaters, concerts, offices, etc have all been places of violence.
Remember when schools would proudly post the number of days since the last shooting?
Despite the horror of it all, school is still safer than lots of places or activities. What makes it seem so bad is a combination of humans’ inability to innately understand statistics, and (more) the fact that school is supposed to be a good and necessary thing.
