All these shootings on top of the Operation Yewtree updates and my roommate's grandmother being in a coma are honestly making this a seriously distressing holiday season.

Media coverage always brings more shooters, this always happens after a big shooting is covered.

i was scared something would happen today. I think many unstable people will do rash things fearing the supposed apocalypse.

I'm mentally stable, and being raised evangelical, I have a huge terror and anxiety relating to the apocalypse. I'm always anxious and stressed when people talk about it because of the mental abuse of my childhood.

I'm waiting for the NRA to announce that what's needed are armed guards on every street corner.
baked_goldfish 21st-Dec-2012 10:25 pm (UTC)
Or that we need armed guards for our armed guards.

The minute I saw 'in a church,' I thought Well, that'll shut 'em up. For an hour or so. Maybe. Until they can pull a new excuse out of their rectums.

Ah, you know, I was getting ready for bed and I thought to myself: "boy! a good ol' mass shooting would be the best topper of the day!" and then you post this.

Seriously though. I realize overall violence/shootings isn't rising and all that, but I hope that three mass shootings in a week or two is enough to push politicians into action. I really, really hope.

Obviously this is just a liberal conspiracy to force gun control, guys.

Christ. If each incident stirs up more people to do the same and go down in infamy, when will it stop?

There were several counties and school districts near my hometown that received shooting threats at the schools for today.

This should really not be the kind of thing about which one says, "What, again?"
