    They are actually refusing to sell games at Wal-Mart.

    Not the guns, ANYTHING but the guns.

    Obtuse fucking jackasses.

    UPDATE: Sounds like it was a miscommunication but i wouldn't be surprised if they quickly reversed course over backlash.

    Wal-mart has always been backwards and catering to the lowest common denominator. No one should have been buying games there anyway. I'll keep my integrity rather than saving a few bucks extra.

    Mitch McConnell - you may remember him as the guy who held the Supreme Court hostage and then packed it once he got his way - is now accusing Democrats of trying to pack the courts so that they can push through awful legislation that they hope will result in fewer people being murdered.

    You can't make this fucking shit up.

    ‘Absolutely horrific’: School-shooting-themed sweatshirts slammed by gun violence victims


    At a fashion show in New York this weekend, a tall model walked down a narrow runway flanked by streetwear devotees. He wore white-and-gold sneakers, khaki pants and a dark gray sweatshirt with the hood up. Across his chest, the word “Columbine” jumped out in embroidered white letters surrounded by ripped holes.

    He wasn’t alone. Three other models soon strutted the checkered floor, each wearing a hoodie tattered with bulletlike holes and embroidered with the names of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history.

    The co-founder of the fashion label later explained he wanted to “make a comment on gun violence … while also empowering the survivors of tragedy.” But instead, the show left victims and their families demanding the company shelve the line and apologize.
    that's insane, right?

    Totally on board with people making their own shirts for protests and whatnot, but this just reeks of "hey, free publicity!" and getting media time based off murdered children. Doesn't sit well with me.

    It’s bad taste for sure but also super insensitive to those families. Haven’t they endured enough?

    Massacres into fashion statements. I should be shocked, but this is America after all...

    Milwaukee is absolutely a segregated racist town, ain't no denying that shit.

    WISCONSIN is like that. There's some good people in Wisconsin, but ...

    Very sad.

    Mass shooting in Nova Scotia, the second-smallest province in Canada. The shooter killed at least 23 people, driving in a fake Royal Canadian Mounted Police cop car dressed as an officer and going from town to town killing folks until he was captured and killed. Horrendous.

    EDIT: He was temporarily banned from owning or carrying a weapon from a previous offence.

    And because of this, our country said enough's enough. Effective immediately, assault style weapons are now officially banned. Fuck. Yes.

    Everyone in America wearing a red baseball hat: "but he was already temporarily banned from owning weapons so obviously there's literally no reason whatsoever to ban guns because it won't stop one single bad thing from happening ever"

    I have such a crush on Canada. I can't believe I only live like 50 miles away and I can't just move there.

    My mom was born there. I've thought about checking into the possibility of moving up there since Trump came into power.

    More good news incoming for Canada:

    https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/trud...ming-1.4922898

    I had a "friend" on facebook who I removed yesterday who was saying that Canadians should launch a civil war over the assault gun ban, and who doubled-down when I tried to calm him down a bit. Anyways, CSIS asked for his information when I made a report to them, but facebook says it's within their community standards.....so?????

    I dunno, fewer guns sounds good to me. Hopefully this municipal handgun ban becomes a real thing and realistically becomes enforceable. I'd love to live in a country that just plain didn't have guns. That'd be pretty good I think.
