    I doubt this guy has the resources to escape and I doubt heíll last too long in a prison full of Mexican criminals.

    Iím not surprised in the least. I just about committed a rage felony when someone threatened my kid with a slap, I canít imagine knowing heís at the scene of a mass shooting. A scare like that would turn Clint Eastwood into a gun grabber.

    It will be interesting to hear the analysis of the proposed law if it would really have flagged him or not.

    From what I've read, police were contacted in the past about hit lists/rape lists. Now, I wouldn't care if that were yesterday or 10 years ago, to be honest. He was showing a trend for a tendency towards violence. No gun for him.

    Companies that make actual money are starting to weigh in- https://www.linkedin.com/company/royal-caribbean

    At some point, their donations will out strip whatever the NRA can bring in.

    The world we live in has changed. When I was growing up in the 60's and 70's, people for the most part were pretty isolated. Even if you lived in a big city, your experiences with other people were generally limited to your family, friends, neighbors, people at school or people at work. I certainly wouldn't be communicating daily with Cornell hockey fans and BU hockey fans and Michigan Tech hockey fans, etc...

    If you had crazy ideas or thoughts running through your head about killing and violence and what not, there is a pretty good chance that you did not know of anyone else who was experiencing similar thoughts. I think in some small way that had the effect of suppressing action on those thoughts.

    Today, everyone throughout the world is connected to one another. If you have moonbat crazy ideas running through your head, it is extraordinarily easy to find others having similar thoughts. That connectivity provides support. It suggests to you that maybe you aren't crazy, that maybe the actions you are thinking about should be acted upon.

    I don't know. Maybe it's complete bs, but I have a feeling that news coverage we see from these tragedies and the reinforcement the killers get from others they've managed to connect with is playing some role here.
    This is part of it. I think the crazier also egg each other on. We're talking about young males, the most insecure people who ever walked the face of the earth. Now scoop off the portion who are uniquely enraged and feel victimized and you have perfect laboratory conditions for peer pressure spinning people up to making their fantasies come true.

    The internet makes these people's ideas into their whole identity. They become professionally aggrieved. They aren't dating or fishing or working, they're pounding their keyboards echoing and amplifying these ideas 24/7.

    Think of the racism of the typical GOPer. In the past it would be there but they would be doing 100 different things, 96 of which it would not impact. But now they listen to Hate Radio or Fox or the rest of the Echo Chamber, and go on the net to talk to other like-minded losers, and their whole world gets filled up with racism. And so you wind up with Build The Wall and the Great Replacement and all the risible mythology of the political right. Their bigotry becomes their lifestyle. They are always "on" where their forbears would be too tired from working or raising a family to act on their nonsense.

    Texas now loosening gun requirements to allow them at churches. Churches. Yeah, because when I go to worship the Lord, I really want the guy sitting next to me to be packing heat.

    I'm sorry, I know I've expressed this before, but guns in church is just so d@mn funny. I was a Catholic. Just imagine some guy (obviously a guy) with a hip holster during the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

    Well, did you enjoy "Battle Royale" or "Hunger Games"? (although those were slightly different in hunters/prey)
