Yeah, the msn story that I linked that broke was all over the rifle angle. Guess it was a handgun. But, the shooter was white. That should be worth at least 48 hours of major headline news. I mean gosh you think they are going to waste headline time to 9 high school kids shot last night, who happened to be black. No way!
Its white people. Do not forget white people were shot and white guy was the shooter. That is the most important thing to take from this
people are getting shot all over the place, a 17 month baby was killed in this rampage, and your main concern is race and how the media covers it?

white fragility is something else

Extreme firearm defensiveness and whataboutism usually involves some underlying derangement.

IMO, the poster was making a sarcastic comment about the extent of the coverage. The media tends to focus on crimes where whites get shot more than they focus on shootings that just involve black people.

and who cares? except for hypersensitive white people, who have to feel constantly victimized to feel normal in this world?

A better solution than NICS would be for the federal government to make available, on the Internet, and by other means, a database containing all people known to be prohibited from owning guns. All gun sellers could access it to determine if a sale would be legal. The system could then issue a unique identifying number which would be a defense that the seller had checked to see if the sale was legal or not.

That's a pretty good idea imo.

States allow ex-convicts to possess guns. Why should the federal bureaucrats become dictators?
