    One of the mass shootings yesterday took place "near Dayton, OH"; tonight I finally learned it was in Beavercreek, where I lived from '83 to '87.  Still have friends living there.   :|

    With almost three weeks to go:
    " 2023 broke the U.S. record for most mass shootings in a year. Last week, the count hit 38—in which at least 203 people have died—passing the previous high of 36, the Guardian reports."

    Louisville; Rolling smoke in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer!  Seems I'm livin in a transitional period.
  • So mass shootings have increased over the last 4 years. Interesting and probably an undercount.

    "2-year-old dies after accidentally shooting herself, Hampton police say"

    'Murica!

    Article does not contain much more than what the headline say. In the next day or two I'm sure we'll learn more about how the toddler got the weapon.

    Ultimately I hope we learn that at least one of the adults in that household ends up in prison for many many years.

    Demographics certainly aren't changing for the better for the NRA and their ilk.

    I didn't read/copy the article I saw in WaPo a couple days ago, but three strong gun-supporting congressmen were changing their tune (amazing what a loss in donations will do).

    Some interesting data:

     Nearly 30,000 firearms have been stolen from vehicles since the Tennessee GOP relaxed gun laws. One decade after the “guns-in-trucks” law removed the penalty for keeping an unlocked firearm in a vehicle, thefts of such weapons have risen from just 46 in 2013 to more than 5,000 last year, according to data from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, as reported by NewsChannel 5 in Nashville.

     

    Gun crimes have more than doubled in the state. From 2013 to 2022, Tennessee saw crimes against persons involving guns rise from nearly 10,000 to nearly 22,000. That number includes:

    • Aggravated assaults with guns: 8,600 to more than 21,000.
    • Murders: 223 to 504.

    This is completely out of the blue! If only we had AI or something even more futuristic that could’ve predicted this!

    A small victory.  Jennifer Crumbly, the mom who purchased a firearm for their disturbed son and repeatedly ignored the school's warnings about his mental health, was found criminally responsible (4 counts of involuntary manslaughter) for the mass shooting at Oxford HS in Michigan (so many of them I can't keep the names straight anymore).  His father's trial starts next month.  
    Baby steps.

    Agreed, Botch.  If parents are held accountable, maybe they’ll start to think twice about keeping unsecured firearms in the house.

    To have what really should be a celebration by fans and a day that’s worry-free instead turned into one of terror and panic… effing A.

    Totally agree.  What have we become as a nation?   The moral fabric that meant something for the common good is being shredded.

    Tommy Tuberville is a loser football coach masquerading as a loser Senator, supporting a loser CHEETO.
    The above just confirms it.

    He might just be the dumbest Senator, and that bar is set all too low…
