When will enough - FINALLY - be enough... :cry:
When all the boomers are dead and buried.

Addendum: That sounds like I'm advocating mass shootings of baby boomers. I mean that generation has made this issue utterly inctractable but there's at least some evidence once they stop being a political force countervailing attitudes will take more hold and create some opportunities for reform. Not that there aren't gun absolutists across the age spectrum, but gun ideology seems to get more fragmented the younger you go.

I’m not even shocked and barely care. We get the country we deserve and this is it. I just wish more people I dislike were getting shot than these poor kids.

What upsets me is seeing kids crying outside their school because their friends have been murdered and I can’t remember the name of the State let alone the school of the previous murders last week.

While the Boss was watching the breathless coverage of the wedding, I asked what kind of event would cause them to break away. Assassination? Major terrorist attack? War declared?

Funny aside - but I remember passing the McDonald's that used to be in the middle of the Chicago Skyway and seeing the phrase "McRib Are Back!" on the sign. It was remained an inside joke for years to come. That said, the McRib is a horrid product.

It's a pity* that Steve isn't here to lecture us how George Soros and Big Ritalin and Big School Door is the real evil here.

If so, would white people who can't go outside without a gun because they're scared of black people actually be practicing Originalists?
