Response to 9 Potential Mass Shootings That Were Stopped By Someone With A Personally Owned Firearm:
A prime example of why you should be required to pass rigorous training before you are allowed to buy a gun and ESPECIALLY before being issued any conceal and carry permit. We need to take classes and pass written and practical tests before getting a drivers license, why should it be easier to get a gun? (NOTE- people steal cars, drive underage and while drunk and yet we STILL require licenses to drive. So the argument that “Bad guys will get guns even if its illegal so why make it harder for the good guys to get guns” is kind of silly when you think about it..) Almost ALL of these people were professionally trained. Your average Joe with a gun would most likely have injured MORE people in the process of trying to bring down the shooter. Hell, even professionally trained cops hit innocent bystanders more than they’d like to admit, how do you think YOU would do under that sort of pressure?
Never said they were they were the healthiest option, just said they are delicious ;)
I’m so sick of self-righteous people chiming in with this same refrain after every mass shooting or terrorist attack. We’ve all heard the theory by now. This isn’t a Harry Potter book, saying someone’s name shouldn’t be this melodramatic taboo. Plus, its never going to happen. People will always be fascinated with the seemingly normal individuals who snap and do the unthinkable. It’s not glamorizing the killer and it’s not making them into celebrities, its answering the question in everyone’s mind- “Who could do such a thing?”. Talking about the victims isn’t nearly as interesting and frankly, (in my opinion) it seems rather disrespectful and voyeuristic to thrust vulnerable and grieving families into the spotlight. Censorship isn’t the answer. Treating the root of the problem is the answer (expanding mental health care and limiting access to guns are a good start…)
OKAY so those Smart Strips fake chicken things are DELICIOUS and I’m very sad that all the grocery stores around me don’t seem to carry them anymore :( My husband and I aren’t vegetarian, but we still buy fake meat fairly frequently. Some meat eaters are seriously closed minded, ain’t nothing wrong with tofu or veggie burgers. Expand your palates plz.
