TOTD 2018-11-7: Borderline Shooting

The shooter has been identified as Ian David Long. He was a 28 year old former Marine. The motives are unclear.

It is sad to see young people out having a good time not make it home this way. The hearts of many families are broken. What took a few seconds will take a lifetime to deal with. The pain is more intense because of the senselessness.

How does one stop something like this happening? Do we just shrug our shoulders and say life happens?

  1. This?

    My theory- the left deliberately leaves the violently deranged free to wander around loose so they can commit massacres.

    I find it extremely tiresome to note just how many of these tragedies could have been prevented, if only existing law had been enforced, or if these “mental health professionals” had done their jobs competently, or if people who were worried something was amiss hadn’t been ignored, or hadn’t been afraid to alert police for fear they’d be called racist.

    If the left actually wanted to stop all this, they’d hasten to correct these sort of problems, especially since they so often occur in jurisdictions they control.

    Yet oddly that never happens. Instead, they always immediately shriek for gun control, then do nothing except complain that others want to do something besides ban guns.

    I just don’t think the usual leftist idiocy is enough to explain all this. They’re breaking American eggs so they can achieve their Venezuelan omelet, so to speak.

  2. To add to Xennady’s comment, I wish we would do more for the guys and gals that come back from seeing God knows what overseas. The libs have turned mental health into a political football and it’s a shame.
