Today at my job we had a guest speaker.  Her name is Kristina Anderson.  She is one of the survivors from the Virgina Tech shooting in 2007.  

 

It was surreal to here her explain her day and how things transpired.  She showed us slides of the classroom layout she was in and where her seat was, and exactly how everything went down.  She was shot 3 times.  Once in her back, once in her butt, and once in her foot.  She got to class late that day because she overslept, and because of that she ended up sitting in the back corner of her classroom.  

 

The only survivors in her classroom were the people who sat back in the corner.  Her teacher was killed and 12 students in her classroom were killed.  The class sat 25 students but they were not all full.  

 

Her mom was in Tysons Corner at the mall and received a phone call from the hospital.  She told her mother 3 things.  You're daughter has been shot, she is being rushed to the hospital, and they are performing surgery on her immediately without anyones consent.  Her mom collapsed in the mall and she said on the 4 hour drive to Tech from Tysons, her dad nearly killed them because of driving erratically.

 

It was just unbelievable to hear the details of it all and how she can talk about it.  She talked about her road to get to where she is today and the issues she still has today and will have the rest of her life.  

 

It's unreal how rare these shootings were back then, 12 years ago, and now it is just common place and NOTHING has changed and it's only gotten worse because we're a ****ing gun happy nation.

 

This **** has to stop.

 

 

My neighbors daughter was one of the ones killed at VT... Reema Samaha. Grew up my whole life with them. May they all RIP.

Aww man. I've been to the garlic festival. 

 

Doesn't sound that fun, but a pretty good time. Great food+drink.

 

Really makes no sense to pick there to start shooting.

At least 11 people were shot and three were killed late Sunday in a shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Gilroy, California.

One suspect was shot and killed, and a second suspect was still on the loose, according to a source.

"An Instagram account bearing the suspect's name, created four days ago, posted two messages shortly before the attacks, including a reference to a white supremacist text."

Meanwhile, Ted Cruz is out there trying to go after Antifa because going after these ****ers shooting up Churches, and Synagogues, and Schools, and Concerts are also the people that are more likely to vote for him.

News barely even talked about this.  At the point where its not even newsworthy anymore. 

 

Maybe that will make it go away.  It becomes so normal that nobody cares and then the right wing nut job white boys will stop looking for attention by shooting up masses of people.

 

We beg the news not to publicize the names of the shooters.  Perhaps it’s best if we just stopped publicizing the whole thing.  It’s like going to the moon.  Do it enough then people stop caring and it stops happening.

Ted Cruz is like every other white Republican Evangelical gunporn loving jackass, white people out there ACTUALLY killing people in ACTUAL mass shootings are not NEARLY as much of a threat as a black person holding a gun promising to defend himself.

BTW, if you are white, Republican,  Evangelical, or gun lover, and feel this doesn't reflect accurately, I don't give a ****. You are the company you keep.

 "Might is Right" is a book published in the late 1800s which has been described as a white supremacist text that promotes anarchy, vilifies Christianity and calls Jesus the "true Prince of Evil." The natural order, according to the book, is a world at war in which the strong must vanquish the weak, and white men must rule over those of color.

 

looked up more on the book and came across this.

Quote

Portions of Might Is Right comprise the vast majority of The Book of Satan in Anton LaVey's The Satanic Bible, the founding document of the Church of Satan.[9]

 

Though it is no longer included in current printings of The Satanic Bible, early printings included an extensive dedication to various people whom LaVey recognized as influences, including Ragnar Redbeard.[10]

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Might_Is_Right

 

Not my kind of book.  Though it really does seem like exactly the sort of book an evil mass murderer would recommend, doesn’t it?  It’s nice to have villains that really fit the role so we can skip the whole empathy bit.

I hear you, but as a point of fact blacks kill more black people than any other race....

maybe the problem isn’t white people killing black people or black people killing white people.. maybe the problem is something else, besides race....

 

I don’t see the point in separating mass shootings for shootings, at the end of the day dead is dead.

Because they generally have different causes, involve different people, and as such likely have different effects and stopping them will require different solutions.
