1. Well, then, that's all taken care of,

because of course it's much too soon to talk about gun control.

5. No, it's too late to talk about regulation of gun ownership

We missed the Goldilocks Moment again (the time when it was ju-u-u-u-u-ust right to talk about that "well-regulated" meaninglessness that was stuck into the Second Amendment for no apparent reason).

23. It's too soon. Columbine was 1999, but it's too soon.

Sandy Hook was 2012, but it's too soon. It will always be too soon because we don't want to upset the NRA.

9. I do wonder whether the shooter

was aware of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre in Chicago in 1929. Or motivated by today being Valentine's Day.
Or just another individual who had no business being able to get his hands on guns and Wednesday was good
for his schedule.

10. Did they use the opportunity to thank the NRA

Last edited Wed Feb 14, 2018, 05:41 PM - Edit history (1)

again for the generous campaign bribes...er...donations? Did they ask if the Holy Guns are okay?



I'll bet the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 will make it easier to move guns across state lines, help sell more guns, and facilitate more "big events" like today!

15. They should be quick

They have sadly had ample opportunity to practice "thoughts and prayers" for just this situation. I am so over the NRA hijacking our country but I'm not hopeful anything will change until it's an "important" child who is the victim of a sick, twisted, fuck of a human being. Maybe a Koch grandchild, or the son or daughter of a US Senator. Maybe then it will be personal enough they will get off their collective asses and fix this shit. Thoughts and prayers my ass. I want laws.

16. Oh, good grief.

It's something you say.

I just did a Google search, "President Obama, thoughts and prayers." Guess what?? He said it, too. Navy yard shooting, Umpquaa Community College shooting, Las Vegas shooting, Texas church shooting, etc.

There is soooooooo much to criticize in this current administration that we really don't need to get petty about it.

17. The saying was fairly new when President Obama offered it.

It's trite and meaningless now

19. "Thoughts & prayers" has its own Wikipedia page

Apparently it was used at least as far back as Columbine.

It seems trite now, because these mass murders have become so common. It's a first reaction by many, when there really isn't much that is known, or much that can be said. JMHO.

22. Difference was, he followed up with that by pushing legislation and demanding actual action.

Trump and the Republicans just toss it out and wash their hands of the situation.

There's nothing at all wrong with offering one's thoughts and prayers. But it can't just be an empty gesture. That's why people are criticizing those on the right.

It does nothing and won't stop the next you. Fuck you, Trump, and anyone else whose only response is meaningless garbage like this.
