I keep hearing "Now is not the time." When will the time come? Seems as though there's a mass shooting every day.

CNN reported automatic like weapons were used.

Something has to be done. The second amendment wasn't written to bolster what some are advocating.

Yes, gun ownership is a right. What kind of gun needs to be addressed.

There were at least 200 mass shootings in the country in the first 132 days of this year, a report by the Gun Violence Archive, a non-profit research group, said.

I think we're becoming numb to mass shootings.

Mass shootings are so last year . . . and this year . . . and probably next year.

They're here to stay . . . similar to racism, skinny jeans, and online infuencers.

Another happened yesterday in Springfield. I think mass shootings should have a thread of its own

.DeWine: 2 in custody after mass shooting injures 6 in Springfield; News conference set for this afternoon

LINK


Side Note: I ink this in wonder if the latest scrutiny on the police has caused a change in policy?

Watching NBC2 news today. A police chase ended in a standoff on the 101 freeway. After taking the suspect into custody the police asked for a mental health unit. I don't remember that happening before.

I meant that’s where we are as a society. Shootings are the stories that end news as oppose to leading. Sadly

3 People Are Killed, Others Hurt In A Shooting At A Miami Area Graduation Party
Updated June 6, 20213:31 PM ET

One of those killed was a state corrections officer, Miami-Dade police Director Freddie Ramirez told news outlets. He said the party at a strip mall lounge was ending when one or more vehicles "pulled up and began to fire into the crowd."

The identities of those killed and wounded were not immediately released Sunday. The shooting happened about 2 a.m. in the suburb of Kendall.

4 mass shootings in 6 hours leave 38 wounded, 6 dead across US
https://abcnews.go.com/US/mass-shootings-hours-leave-39-wounded-dead-us/story?id=78252429


At least four major U.S. cities were reeling from an onslaught of mass shootings over the weekend that left at least 38 people wounded, six dead and police officials alarmed that the surge in gun violence is a prelude to a bloody summer as the nation emerges from the pandemic.

Police in Austin, Cleveland, Chicago and Savannah were all investigating on Sunday mass shootings that erupted over a six-hour streak that began around 9 p.m. on Friday and spilled over into Saturday morning.


"At least 4 major U.S. cities" .. ELI5?? So beyond these 4 there could be more cities during the June 11-13th weekend where there were more mass shootings?..
