    Stop blaming this all on Trump. There has been shootings for a long time the news channels are escalating it and creating fear, the video is proof of the fear they're creating. People running when there aren't even any people shooting. There was shootings when Obama was in office and the president before Obama. Come on what's wrong with people. Stop letting the news channels dictate how your world is. People are becoming zombies. I find it ironic how they don't report the shootings that have been going on in LA CA for more than 30 years. The high school that I went to in the 70s put gun detectors in the school in the 80s. This is nothing new people it is about politics. This is about the news channels hating Trump.

    When a man has to be on attack against so many people, a man like Trump. Its because he feels that the more he insults others the better he feels about himself. He is a very insure man.

    I can’t do this anymore. I was shot two times by an active shooter when I was 19 years old, one bullet unfortunately was & is non removable forever lodged in my upper back, pieces of shrapnel still lay in my chest. As I watched the people in NYC running, I thought to myself how it feels to live through this experience. Those running in terror were feeling the same way I do everyday. I’m older now, yet I still live with the memories of that night. A few things I want to relay. What happens when the story isn’t “the story” anymore? When the cameras and the reporters go away? Those of us who have lived through this kind of violence, often are forgotten, and left behind, often unable to find employment due to our injuries, and trauma. Then this cycle repeats itself, over and over across our nation and we relive our trauma all over again. There’s no long term help, no long term strategies in place, therapy is nearly if not totally nonexistent, no job training to help those of us who are unable to pursue fields of work we were once able to do. There’s no way “back” to living the life we did before being shot. Imagine fighting for your life only to exist. There’s no medals of merit, or “welcome home”. In the end it’s just you. And the memories coupled with the physical & emotional pain of utter chaos that this violence visits upon those who survive. As a survivor, I just want to move on, I want to work again, I want to help others. Through these things we live again. My heart felt prayers are with the families of those who lost loved ones and with those who survived. God Bless you all. Ian

      @Captisntim1 - Nobody, apparently, likes a Smart-alec or a Wisenheimer! (Not even Dr. Tyson!!)
      "Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Tweet on Mass Shooting Deaths, Strikes a Nerve"
      NYTimes (8.5.2019) -- After attacks in El Paso and Dayton killed more than 32 people, the astrophysicist apologized for his ill-timed attempt to add context.
      Dr. Tyson apologized for his comments in a post: “My intent was to offer objectively true information that might help shape conversations and reactions to preventable ways we die.”

      31 people were killed in back-to-back mass shootings over the weekend, leaving the country shaken and refueling the national conversation on access to firearms.
      On Sunday, Neil deGrasse Tyson, the astrophysicist posted a Tweet, comparing statistics on *_Other causes of death, in comparison with gun deaths,_* he wrote, “Often *_our emotions respond more to a spectacle than to Data.”_*
      Dr. Tyson listed how many Americans die, on average, from other causes: medical errors, flu, suicide, car accidents and from homicides by handgun. He said 34 people had recently died in mass shootings. (In TX and OH, there also recent attacks in VA and MD)
      Social Media quickly criticized his response and timing as insensitive, for implying, "intentional attacks and accidental deaths are ever comparable."
      Geo-Physicist, Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson, apologized, explaining his motive for the Tweet : “My intent was to offer objectively, true information, that _might help shape_ conversations, and our reactions to the preventable ways we die.” - NYTimes (8.5.19)

    Liberal Fascists are to blame for your problems out west in California. Its your insane fascist leadership out there that makes life completely unaffordable.
    They are the reason everything cost double compared to prices here in the Midwest.
    Its because of your Liberal Fascist politicians promising the world to any who cross the border illegally and make it to the sanctuary cities that your homeless population is through the roof.
    President Trump isn't the one responsible for the human feces on your sidewalks or the used needles everywhere.
    You have 3rd world diseases popping up there because the cities are so disgustingly filthy.
    How on earth do you think the illegals are being taken care of in your sanctuary cities, (which are only sanctuary for rodents that love garbage ) by raising your taxes and overall cost of living. Nothing is free and you civilians that live in these areas are the one's footing the bill for every last immigrant that is bedding down in your city's.
    Those of you that are employed are working so that these illegal immigrants don't have to.

      by your logic Obama is a mass murderer, and should be given a lethal injection. under his joke of a presidency there were twenty-eight mass shootings. eight so far under Trump. funny isn't it? no republicans blamed Obama's anti-white/pro Muslim rhetoric for all those killings. strange how this only flows one way,huh? ALL republicans are racist devils, and ALL democats are pure as the driven snow and above reproach. yeah....that's intelligent.

    I live in California and we have the “Red Flag Laws.” My neighbor suffers from mental illness and he was having an episode saying he was going to harm the neighbors. We called the police and they went into his home and seized all his weapons and put him on a 72 hour 50/50 hold. Every state should have this law. There is no telling what he would have done...

      @RED CLOUD ALPHA - We're also glad you're in your _''normal state"_ - eating Milk, Bread, and Gasoline for din-din, every day you want it!
      Not too cool tho, looking down on other's misfortunes, and sneering at them because they've had a financial downturn, or an unexpected injury or illness, that broke their bank, (the #1 cause is medical bankruptcy), or were simply 'down-sized' out of a job, and now being "too old" or "over-qualified" to hire elsewhere? How'd you like your own grandma being sneered at on the street - for being _poor?!_ *_Really?!_*
      Think about your *_own_*_ loved ones,_ being out there on the mean streets, without any options: hungry and homeless, in_the_dark - If *_you_* weren't there, to help them pick up the pieces, or start over? How long would _they_ last? And how much _more_ would they have to suffer, just because of an attitude like *_Yours?_*
      Not cool. Next time you feel that lip of yours start curl down into a sneer, and you get that ugly urge to shat on another's person's pile of pain and suffering, and you start to *_add your 'tude to their problems?_*
      Repeat This Silently To Yourself : *"There, But For the Good Graces Above, Go I"*
      And thank your own lucky stars for what you *Do Have.* And the people in your life, that you DO love. Some people - through no fault of their own, are in this world, and aren't that lucky!
      And it's *NOT **_YOUR_** PLACE TO DEBASE THEM **_EVEN FURTHER_* - for their losses or suffering in life, now *IS IT?*
      Go _try to grow some _*_compassion_*_ somewhere!_ What would Your OWN Mama say about how you treat others - those less fortunate than you? Would she be proud of you? Or, disappointed, that one of the primary, and basic 'Golden Rules' didn't stick with you?
      That's a pretty sound yard-stick to use in Life, while venturing out in this world : _Pretend your _*_own Mom_*_ is looking over your shoulder, and she's _*_Watching How You Behave!_*

      Police officers will do that in every single state within the Union of our Republic.
      Whats it like having no money? What's it like paying 4 dollars plus change for a gallon of milk?
      Oh or eggs? How much do you enjoy paying almost 4 dollars for 12 eggs? Oh wait wait wait I forgot everyone out there uses tax payers money to pay for everything. Ya know EBT or SNAP? It's probably not called either one of those cause those acronyms might hurt someone's feelings.
      Whats it like living amongst all the trash and feces on the sidewalks?
      Oh hey do you help out the homeless there? What about the homeless illegal immigrants?
      I'm sure you have your front door wide open as well so that the homeless can come on in and shoot up some fentanyl and sleep on your couch. Yeah California seems like a real gem to live in.
      LMFAO I thank God everyday that I live in a normal state where I only pay 950.00 a month for a 4 bedroom townhouse. Oh or food too. Not only does food taste better when you buy it yourself; it feels good not being dependent on other hard working tax welfare-food stamps.
      It's fantastic being able to leave your front door unlocked and open.
      Lol milk is only 2.30 bread is only a buck gas is only 2.50 a gallon.

      Actually, there *WAS* an enactment called, *'The Brady Bill'* that specifically *OUTLAWED* any new purchases of these *_Semi-Automatic Weapons,_* on the books for close to _20 years,_ after *President Ronald Reagan* was nearly assassinated, and his chief of staff, Mr. Brady, was shot in the head, and severely disabled!
      It's enactment and federal enforcement resulted in a statistically *_marked decrease_* in both the *number, and the severity of shootings, nation-wide!*
      Unfortunately, our Congress allowed it to _'Sunset'_ in the early 2000's, and those weapons, became legal once again.
      With what we're dealing with _again,_ today, and considering *_history_* as any indicator, _this Federal Ban on Purchases, and outlawing of the Possession of these Specific Weapons, like 'The Brady Bill', *WILL* make a great difference!
      It's what we very seriously and urgently need in our society, to dial back these endless, worsening public blood-baths we are experiencing!
