    They should have a mass shootings tv channel over there running 24 hours, with obligatory NRA adverts inbetween the action.

    Not to mention endless adverts for in-play betting and the latest odds on the shooters identity and death toll, just like any ordinary modern televised sport.

    Right now PaddyPower are doing a great offer for your bet back when your shooter fails to kill at least five.

    Standards are slacking if only 7 were killed in Texas. More guns we need on the streets to get back to killings in the 20's.

    I remember when I was banned from this section for apparently 'making light' of peoples passing with comments far more tame than those in this thread :hmmm

    Surprised it even made the news!
    And why Texas all the time. Surely there’s loads of ‘good guys with guns’ in the lone star state. I’d have thought it would be one of the safest :hmmm

    Meanwhile a bit of great news in the UK, some pond life shot at someone today, the bullet bounced off the target's car and killed the shooter. F##king priceless, absolutely brilliant :laugh:

    This advertising spot shouldn't have to exist, but it does, and f*ck me is it powerful (the kind of campaign i'd imagine @Marty_LFC would've both loved to have worked on, and hated that he had to at the same time)

    That’s chilling and that as a culture it’s happened so frequently that something like his would even be thought of let alone necessary shows the blind sheep mentality of the nation as a whole. Any society that can sit back and continue to allow their children to be regularly executed without taking action is backward and spineless

    Jesus this is bone chilling. You're pretty spot on with your description of how it could feel working on that.

    I briefly worked on the Brady Campaign years ago, and having to do interviews to collect stories was probably what pushed me to be more politically aware and active. A very small benefit for me had to come at the cost of so many lives. You're right, this type of thing should NOT have to exist, yet it's somehow a polarizing issue.

    I really want to start a campaign basically saying that "pro-life" is bullsh*t if you support the gun agenda.

    Agree that was chilling, absolutely horrible and I know that was an advert, I can't imagine the horror that people have gone through when these things have actually happened. Have two young kids and stuff like this just cuts to the bone, to live in a country where there is a realistic chance of that happening, in a supposedly modern 1st world country, is just disgusting.

    Every NRA/gun lobby campaigner/lobbyist and the spineless politicians that take money from them should be appalled with themselves.

    If I were running for office, I a big part of my campaign would be to say that any politician or member or supporter of the NRA supports domestic terrorism. They have gallons of American blood on their hands.
