A Facebook friend invited me to watch coverage of the aftermath on some lefty website. Fucking seriously dude?! We both agree a lot politically but I'm way less "confrontational and prone call people stupid." Unless they're obviously stupid of course

Both the fucking sides are wrong. The left needs to quit fetishizing the attacks as political opportunities because that's why the right thinks you're going to take away all the guns and the right needs to admit that guns are dangerous weapons that need to be strictly regulated because that's why these have become fetishized by the left

It's a vicious cycle of brain dead children arguing

To put it simply.

Wait, what qualifies as feteshizing the attacks as political opportunities? Are you able to discern genuine public health concern manifest as calls for gun control from rabid anti-2A folks looking to... what, stick it to gun owners?

Actually yeah. There does seem to be some smugness after attacks from liberal assholes. Like there's smugness on the right for attacks that are stopped by guns. By lying about those.

Anyway, I'm going to go back to waiting for my phone ringer to stop scaring me.

No. How my liberal Facebook explodes in gun control memes after every attack? I have extremely obnoxious people from both extremes and it's just frustrating.

I dunno man. May just be best to ignore me for a few days. I just typed had instead of typing was.

You gotta give me some credit for typing that on my phone after being awake for 72 hours.
