Where are the babies, @housegop? They’re dead. They’re dead in their classroom because you won’t do shit to protect them. You done?
Where’s the baby formula, @JoeBiden?

It turns out we missed a game from over 80 years ago! Back on March 31, 1942, Nick Metz scored with 5 seconds left to send the Maple Leafs into the Stanley Cup Final.
Darren Helm delivered the game-winner with 6 seconds left in the 3rd. It's the latest game-winning goal to clinch a series in Stanley Cup playoff history (excluding OT).

Fuck off Mike….blaming single mothers… what an idiotic take that is. It’s the damn guns!!! How many would have died if the 18 year old just had a knife? Yeah, exactly….
Condemning calls for "more gun control," Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) wonders aloud whether "fatherlessness" and "the breakdown of families" are to blame for mass shootings.

26 years ago, a gunman entered Dunblane Primary School in Scotland, killing 16 kids and a teacher. The UK govt responded by enacting tight gun control legislation. In the 9400+ days since, there have been a total of 0 school shootings in the UK QED

Good point, and props to whatever journalist started asking for these call logs before the cops managed to “misplace” them.

First of all, I'm quite surprised to learn that somehow, magically, these 911 call records weren't lost. Secondly, let's not forget that these are 3rd grade students, 9 or 10 year olds, who are making these calls.

From the TX training manual for school response:

gonna end this with the most striking line from the manual: "A first responder unwilling to place the lives of the innocent above their own safety should consider another career field."

So 19 officers stood in the hallway by the classroom door with the shattered window, waiting for 30 minutes while Ramos fired hundreds of rounds, listening to children die. There were more officers standing outside the classroom than children who died inside.

I own and avidly shoot my ar15 but understand that something needs to change. If thats more regulations, more in depth background checks, or banning the ar15 all together I’m good with all of it. The enjoyment of such a gun isn’t worth the lives. I only wish others felt the same

Today at the Girls 3A State Golf Tournament at The River Valley Golf Course in Adel, the average score on hole 18 was a quadruple bogey. No, the golfers weren't bad, but this had to have been the most unfair pin placement I've ever seen. This slope gave the athletes no chance.

Heartbreaking.
A child at Robb Elementary repeatedly called 911 during the hour the gunman was inside, per press briefing just now. Gunshots could be heard over the line. "Please send the police now," the child asked.

At the risk of name-dropping: Riding on back of @BobRahal cart. Yellow shirts wouldn't let him thru. Apologized; just enforcing rules. "Only TV," for pit stop contest, he said. Then @MarioAndretti sped past during BR's u-turn. "... and Mario," the YS added w/ a shrug.
