1. I understand your frustration at not wanting to typing the details but I hit their paywall



So, since I can't read the story,

Could you at least tell me the shooter was from across the border, ya know, because Greg Abbott is going to do more to keep the immigrants out of Texas because they are so violent according to him.


I suspect the violent one was white, but . . . .

3. Happened about 1:30 AM on 6th street,

the popular evening/late night purview. No suspect yet, no motive known, investigation continues.

Good news, no deaths only two critically wounded. Bad news is there are now 13 more people whose lives are forever altered by a gun that was probably legally purchased by law abiding citizen.

8. From the link in the OP

The Austin Police Department said is appears to be an isolated issue. Witnesses described the shooter as a thin black male with dreadlocks who was wearing a black shirt, but Chacon cautioned the chaos of the scene prevented them from getting more details.They are still trying to determine whether there were multiple shooters.

"It's not clear at this point what sparked this off," Chacon said.

4. But how will we protect ourselves from the guns, if not with more guns?

And more and more and more and more, ad nauseum, ad infinitum.

Amazing no one has died from this shooting. Yet, at least.

10. NO it IS the people who are too crazy to HAVE guns, but still HAVE them that is the problem.

We should let the NRA start up Gun Insurance so that each infraction raises the price and horrible actions immediately terminate the right to own a gun EVER. Be used against someone in a court of law.

SO that ONLY irresponsible gun owners are impacted.


THEN WE are on THEIR side. The side of sane and rational humans who just want only "GOOD" people to have guns and not the "Crazy Mo-Fo's" who go shooting babies and grandmas.


Even my son, who has gone full tRumpie on me, supports this type of legislation because he totally knows HE is not one of those "Crazy Mo-Fo's" with his gun under his bed, safely using it only for hunting or self defense.

7. My heart is broken that we can't get guns out of the hands of sick people.

A toddler and his Grandma shot for NO REASON in a grocery store. Then the man kills himself.

Florida even HAS a law that could have helped the guy if someone had said something.
