International gun laws

Why they target the most innocent people baffles me. These individuals are pure evil within.

3 children, 3 adults killed at Christian school in Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A female shooter wielding two “assault-style” rifles and a pistol killed three students and three adults at a private Christian school in Nashville on Monday in what marks the latest in a series of mass shootings in a country growing increasingly unnerved by bloodshed in schools.

The suspect also died after being shot by police following the violence at The Covenant School, a Presbyterian school for about 200 students from preschool through sixth grade. Police said the shooter was a 28-year-old woman from Nashville, after initially saying she appeared to be in her teens.

Authorities were working to identify her and whether she had a connection to the school.

The killings come as communities around the nation are reeling from a spate of school violence, including the massacre at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, last year; a first grader who shot his teacher in Virginia; and a shooting last week in Denver that wounded two administrators.

The American way

Congressman who represents the Nashville district involved in deadly school shooting posted a gun-toting family photo for Christmas in 2021

A female shooter. That strikes me as incredibly rare.

Rare, but perhaps times are changing

There is a mental breakdown among humans, or perhaps this has always been the case

Human behaviour does change.

There’s certainly more going on with mass shooting perpetrators than just a need to shoot or a need to kill. There’s a lot of power issues and blocked energy flying about too, and I’m sure those things can affect females also, its just that it is usually males who enact their violent responses.

Inflicting violence on the most vulnerable is sickening

I can’t remember the last one. I mean, there’s so many shootings here, a female shooter would stand out.

The police officers here did a good job saving lives, as there has been a debate in America about what the police is supposed to do.

Nashville police who took out a school shooter in minutes appeared to call out Uvalde’s officers, saying ‘we will never wait to make entry’ to ‘stop a threat’

A Nashville police chief appeared to call out cops in Uvalde, Texas, after Monday’s school shooting.

"We will never wait to make entry and to go in," said Metropolitan Nashville Police Chief John Drake.

Texas authorities have faced backlash over their botched response to the Uvalde school shooting.

A Nashville police chief appeared to call out cops in Uvalde, Texas, as he praised his officers for quickly taking out a mass shooter at a Christian elementary school in the Tennessee city on Monday.

“As I said before, we will not wait,” Metropolitan Nashville Police Chief John Drake told reporters after the massacre at The Covenant School, where three 9-year-olds and three adult staffers were slain on Monday morning.

Drake added, “I was hoping this day would never ever come here in the city. But we will never wait to make entry and to go in and to stop a threat especially when it deals with our children.”

The police chief appeared to be referencing how police in the small Texas city of Uvalde handled the May 2022 mass shooting at Robb Elementary School, which left 19 children and two teachers dead.

Texas authorities have faced immense backlash over their botched response to the shooting and for drastically changing their narrative about what happened before, during, and after the rampage.

In total, it took Uvalde authorities more than an hour to finally confront and shoot dead the 18-year-old gunman at Robb Elementary School.

In the aftermath of the shooting, a top Texas law enforcement official slammed the massacre as an “abject failure.”

Meanwhile, Nashville police on Tuesday released graphic body-camera footage showing how officers took just minutes to find and kill a 28-year-old shooter at The Covenant School.

Anyone who takes their own life problems out on other people does not deserve to be on this planet, and it is mind-boggling to target children.

I’m trying to figure out the reason for this, but crazy people are…crazy, so you can’t make it make sense.

Who knows what’s in people minds. Distress can come from hidden thoughts and feelings that are not conscious.

Bodycam: Cops Take Down Louisville Bank Shooter During Deadly Mass Shooting

Bodycam footage shows the moments police responded to a mass shooting at Old National Bank in Louisville, Kentucky. Authorities said the shooter, 25-year-old Connor Sturgeon, killed five people and injured eight others. Sturgeon, who also died in the shooting, worked at the bank and allegedly started firing at employees during a morning meeting before the bank opened.

Things have gotten worse over the month

Why are people shooting strangers for being in the wrong place at the wrong time? Gun experts weigh in

Whether it’s due to anger or fear, gun experts worry America is becoming a “shoot first” country.

A 16-year-old Kansas City honors student was shot in the head by a complete stranger last week for ringing the wrong doorbell while trying to pick up his younger brothers from a sleepover.

Two days later, a 20-year-old woman in upstate New York was shot dead by a homeowner after she and her friends pulled into the wrong driveway in Hebron, N.Y.

And on Tuesday, two Texas cheerleaders were struck by gunfire after one of the young women opened the door to a car she mistook for her own.

According to Josh Horwitz, co-director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Violence Solutions, unless Americans are willing to get serious about modern-day gun culture, the senseless shooting of innocent people in the wrong place at the wrong time will become the new norm.

“We have a shoot first society,” he said. “We have a culture of fear.”

Man who shot at Florida couple when they went to wrong house on Instacart delivery will not face charges

A man who shot at a Florida couple when they went to the wrong house to make an Instacart grocery delivery will not face charges.

Authorities in Davie, north of Miami, said they will not recommend charges against the shooter, 43-year-old Antonio Caccavale, after determining that his actions were justified by fear.

The last couple weeks have been just crazy! More of the same.

Local middle school had a active shooter incident a couple weeks ago (prank) and then some dumb kid brought a loaded gun to school. Middle school?!?

It’s becoming like the wild west: shoot people because you think they are doing something wrong or because you think you are in danger when there is no threat.

That is obvious ! - killing kids creates maximum pain !

America also have a inner city gang problem that terrorized neighborhoods.

I think gang violence is more easier to handle then a mass shooting because we know where the high crime areas are at, only if those mayors grow a pair and crack down on these thugs.

I personally just don’t get the US citizens obsession with guns. Almost on a daily basis you see in the news about mass shootings in the US at schools, night clubs etc etc, and for some reason the population still live in this fantasy world that they believe they don’t have an issue with guns. It’s baffling.

In the UK our gun laws are super tight and you can only own a gun if you can prove that you need to own one. As far as I’m aware you can only own a shotgun (single or double barrel) or a rifle for hunting reasons and you need to go through a super stringent process to obtain a license. You can also own air powered pellet guns without a license. However, because we don’t have guns the kids like to use knifes instead.


Maybe it has to do with freedom or somebody taking something away from you. Plus the whole argument about the Constitution giving people that right.
