Do you know how depressing it is to write “latest mass shooting in Texas?”

Courtesy of The Hill:

The man who killed seven people in Odessa, Texas, over the weekend had been fired from his trucking job hours before the mass shooting, according to multiple reports.

He was pulled over Saturday by state troopers for failing to use a turn signal before beginning firing, according to police.

An additional 22 people were injured in the mass shooting, which was the second in Texas in August.

The Hill has identified the shooter by name but I am going to leave that part out as I do not want to help any of these assholes get famous. 

The man had a few run-ins with the law, but there were no outstanding warrants for his arrest which might help to explain his massive overreaction to being pulled over. 

Right now this seems like a simple case of a man who lost his temper after suffering just one more frustration than he could handle. 

It likely had not a damn thing to do with video games or mental health issues and was just a man who lost his shit and happened to have access to a military-style weapon so that he could punish the world for it. 

Without this gun, he might have been arrested for a barroom brawl or a domestic violence incident at his home, but there would probably be no fatalities and there definitely would not be a 17-month-old having her face reconstructed in a hospital. 

Once again guns do not keep us safe, and the proof of that is that not one single citizen in the most pro-gun state in the country stopped this guy during his murder spree. 

There was no “good guy with a gun” just dozens of victims and terrified people fleeing for their lives.

    This one has bigger numbers! Pretty much every weekend! Where is the liberal outrage as to what is wrong with these people in the big Democratic stronghold cities?

    C’mon Beto, go to a few select neighborhoods bounding Chicago and tell everyone how fucked up they are!

    Baltimore did quite a bit better this year than in the several years past. Only 18 shot and 2 killed.

      You are right we are suffering an epidemic of gun violence.

      Something drastic clearly needs to be done.

      And we have candidates on the Democratic side ready to tackle this problem head-on.

    It’ll only get worse as long as “salvation is elsewhere”.

    The root of the problem has always been “the trance of Jesus”.

    Walmart to ban shoppers from openly carrying guns and limit ammo sales in surprise move

    …..“After selling through our current inventory commitments, we will discontinue sales of short-barrel rifle ammunition such as the .223 caliber and 5.56 caliber that, while commonly used in some hunting rifles, can also be used in large capacity clips on military-style weapons,” Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said in a memo to employees on Tuesday.

    McMillon added that Walmart will also end the sale of handguns in Alaska and will also stop the selling of ammunition for all handguns nationwide. Alaska was the only state where the retailer sold handguns.
