The shooting at Reynolds High School east of Portland, Oregon is the 74th school shooting since the Massacre at Sandy Hook in Newton. The problem is the proliferation of guns.
Guns. Guns. Guns.
Of course, besides flooding the Nation with hundreds of millions of firearms the other issue equally to blame for the Gun Violence is the existence Right-Wing Tea Party ideology which creates thousands of conservative drones ready to conduct Domestic Terrorist attacks over the faux scandals of Umbrella-Gate, the rescuing of an American POW, or when Alex Jones proclaims every shooting is a False Flag.
Everything else is a secondary issue. Without the guns, we would not be losing 30,000 Americans with another 100,000 a year at least wounded by gunfire. Of course, we'll never how many people are wounded each and every year by gun humping fanatics because the NRA and Republican Party will fight every effort to stop Gun Violence.
This is something you expect in an African Nation which having just thrown off the shackles of Western Imperialism, became embroiled in a Civil War, then a Military Junta followed by a Communist Revolution and then a Right-Wing coup d'état.
Not here. Not in the USA; the Beacon of Freedom, the Shining City on a Hill, the World's so-called Greatest Democratic Republic.
Right-Wingers and Republicans always proclaim every one of these Conservative Domestic Terrorist attacks are actually done by Leftists and registered Democrats.
And why wouldn't lying Republicans claim this? The Media won't call them out for their lies. The American Right has a strong fascist streak.
"Here are the 3 rules of Fascism; Make Shit up, Scream it Loudly, and then Kill People." - Eddie Izzard, Chicago Theater 06/09/14.But, consider what the NRA and conservatives have embraced as the cause and solution. Mental Illness and a Federal Database to catalogue those suffering from it.
Apparently within the epistemically closed right-wing fart bubble they are unaware of how committal was used in the past as a weapon. Today's involuntary committal forms have several declarations that must be signed by the complainant. They affirm the complainant has no legal case against the person to be committed, there is no pending financial dispute and state the nature of their relationship.
Now, as a corollary, Conservatives claim Liberalism is a mental disease.
So, the question is based on these right-wing claims about Liberalism and the political ideology of mass shooters would the NRA and conservative gun humpers support confiscating all guns owned by registered Democrats and self-proclaimed Liberals?
Because US Congressmen are paralyzed or complicit. State Governments have Tea Party madmen increasing the availability of Guns and engaging in murderous schemes granting every right-wing domestic terrorist the ability to carry weapons anywhere while adopting vague laws which ensure every confrontation will descend into gun fights.
The Republican Party, their conservative drones and Tea Party Domestic Terrorists have done their job. They've sundered the Nation.
