Gunman opens fire in Orlando Nightclub, killing 50+ -
13 June 2016, at 22:10
In what appears to be an all too familiar occurrence in my country, another shooting has occurred in America.

In Orlando, Florida, the city of residence of our very own Tom "R-33" Kehlenbeck, a gunman armed with an AR-15 assault rifle and pistol, opened fire on the PULSE NIGHTCLUB, killing over 50 people before being vanquished by local police.

The events of this weekend have caused me to be filled with so much rage that I almost cried. Bear in mind, I haven't felt that way in years.

As Tom pointed out, the gunman legally and easily purchased and licenced the assault rifle, a weapon no ordinary citizen has ANY business possessing.

This incident, which is one of the deadliest in the recent history of America, shows many of the problems my country is facing: The fact that people here can easily and quickly get their hands on dangerous weapons without much questioning AND how a lot of people feel the need to be superior to others, much to the degree that they say disparaging things and even bully and kill others over factors like race, colour, orientation, etc.

I feel that a LOT of changes need to be if America is to survive as both a people and nation.

Thoughts?

And Friday already gunfire at a concert where singer Christina Grimmie got killed.

How the hell can automatic guns be legal?? And Donald Trump wants to keep them legal, cz all American citizens should be able to defend themselves. Unfortunately, automatic guns are never used to defend, only to attack.

However, the big words Hillary Clinton said won't make a difference either. High priority this and that, you can never rule out those crazy fucks, there will always be more of them walking around in freedom than there are locked up. Of course it's also impossible to fully unarm these bastards, but a simple change in the US gunlaw, can make it a lot harder to get them and it will happen a lot less often, which will save hundreds of innocent people. Such a shame the majority of the US citizens are so ignorent to see that.

Exactly. It's WAAAAAAY beyond time for us to stand up to the NRA and start putting more emphasis of human lives and curtailing these tragedies.

It doesn't help at all when a British tabloid newspaper tries to sensationalize the tragedy by saying "ISIS Murder..." when the culpret simply acted on his own free will for something told be all-too-many, in which he just happened to agree with.

This tabloid, which I will choose not to name, takes pride in being a paper that tells it "like it is".

"Tells it like it is"...That sounds like a certain blonde bigot from my country that is gunning for the presidency.

What these tabloids and media companies need to realise that by demonising and stereotyping entire ethnicities, they are contributing to an enviorment of fear, which is EXACTLY what ISIS and other extremist groups want.

But also good for gun sales in the US, good for the US weapon industry and therefor good for the Republicans.

However, didn't IS claim this shooting? Cz that's what they said here as well. Not that it makes this shooting worse or less bad.

Get this:

The US Senate just voted AGAINST measures that would have expanded background checks, closed the gun show loopholes and would have for the most part made it tougher for dangerous persons to obtain firearms.

Ugh....it's as if my country actually WANTS more of these shootings to happen!

That's what I'm thinking for years already. An association like the NRA that supports shootings, should be forbidden as well.
