It happened again!

Image result for gun shooting oregon images Another day another mass shooting in America. No words.

My thoughts go out to the family members and loved ones of those who lost their lives today.

I am not going to give my opinions about guns and gun violence. You all know where I have stood on this issue over the years, so there is no need for me to rant about this latest tragedy.

The president has had enough, and he said as much tonight when he spoke to the nation about this latest slaughter of innocents.

He tried, once again, to use the "bully pulpit" to change our opinions about the gun culture that exists in our country, but as we have seen time and time again this is just an exercise in futility.

Anyway, I would like to know what you (regardless of how you feel about guns) would do to help curb the senseless gun violence that is so widespread in our society.

I'd try to reduce poverty and increase opportunity for those growing up poor. If you have a better option than becoming a drug dealer or a gang banger, you might take it. Or you might not. But if some did, that would at least help. I don't know if it would make a difference in the kind of senseless slaughter that happened today, though. With roughly the same number of guns in circulation as people in America, when someone fully loses it, there will probably be a gun they can get to enact their sickness with. But making it a little more difficult for them wouldn't hurt anything. I grew up with guns, but left them all in Eureka when I moved to Oakland in '84, so I know they can have their place, but feel that if we didn't worship them like we do, it might be easier to agree on just where and when that place should be.
And finally, I have been to Roseburg Oregon. I used to race motorcycles, and went there to race a couple of times in the early eighties. It seemed like a nice, calm little place. Quite a contrast with the body they found shot to death and wrapped in plastic before it was dumped on Union St. in West Oakland (across the street from where I once lived) that I read about today. Will we ever do anything about this situation? The answer to that question will be writ large in the definition of who we are as a people going forward.

Well, if it's already been decided we're not going to do anything about access to guns (the NRA appears to have decided this for us), then we're left attacking the motive for using them.

But then, we run up against other complaints from some of the same wingnuts who resist gun control.

If we want to do something about street crime, we've got to create a fairer economic climate so that everyone can earn a legitimate living. That means greater funding of education, industrial policy to develop poor urban and rural areas, better transportation to jobs, labor laws that boost the average worker's wages, etc. It also means reversing "tough-on-crime" economic policy: ending the Drug War, less-punitive sentences for non-violent crime, incentivizing employers to look past ex-cons' records in hiring, etc.

Inevitably, all of that stuff requires higher taxes and lower incomes for rich people and/or being "nice" to criminals, so that's a "no" from conservatives.

On the other hand, if we want to reduce mass shootings, the main avenue is addressing mental illness. Yet, mental health care costs rich people money, so that's out, too.

Thus so we're back to the usual completely ineffective conservative remedies: scold black people, recommend everyone get some more Jesus in their lives, bash immigrants. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Same shit, different day.

That was the thing I forgot to include in my comment above:
Stop making mass killers famous. Some of my favorite blogs are already doing this, naming them as "the latest asshole" in their posts about mass shootings, and bad behavior in general. In the "remove the incentives" approach, that seems like a fairly easy and effective incentive to remove.

Pray. Prayer is very effective when you are committed to prayer. Unfortunately, nobody really believes in prayer which leaves only one option: Try to figure out the impossible with the human biased ego. That means this discussion keeps going round and round with no solution. Even the President has given into the suffering of despair.

Has it occurred to anyone that we are destroying ourselves? Seriously. Has anyone noticed?

PilotX said...

More mental health assistance. Reagan closed the doors on many mental health facilities. I think Obamacare is spending money on mental health so maybe that's squaring that circle. We also have to get hold on such easy access to guns. Start allowing lawsuits on gun shops and manufacturers and I bet we see some move ment but that would require some courage from lawmakers.

Let's just all sit around and see just how far people are going to lose their minds. There's probably not a nary one working with a full deck as it is! Guns will be blazing like the Wild, wild West, I guess. This country has seriously gone flat-out Looney Tunes.

There's one thing everyone is missing re: mental health in America. That is, ALL Americans are mentally ill and therefore are capable at any time of using their stash of weapons to kill masses of people.

You see, people who already have guns are going crazy everyday. So even if you were to make extensive background checks, it probably wouldn't make much of a difference. Hell, husbands kill their entire families at least once a month and they were sane by societal standards.

The only 'sure' way to stop the carnage is to stop gun buying and shut down the NRA. Since this is America and that makes too much intellectual sense, it won't happen.

Isn't it amazing that Europe and Canada and other countries got rid of personal gun buying yet America still keeps on buying?

It's the same with health care. Other countries provide health care for all of its citizens but America doesn't. America is a weird place destined to fold like the Soviet Union did when the Berlin Wall did.

We are imploding from within and there doesn't seem to be anyway of stopping it.

"The president has had enough"

He never gets enough of demonizing the occasional White who does what Blacks do day in and day out.  It is all about demonizing, disarming and dispossessing Whitey.  The same number of deaths every couple of weeks just between Baltimorgue and Chicongo... not a peep from him.

"Excluding cop shootings, white deaths get a lot more media coverage."

Because if you called equal attention to all the Black-on-Black murders in the big cities around the country, people would actually wonder what is wrong with Blacks.  Which they should.  As it is, mass shootings by Blacks are quickly stuffed down the memory hole.  Quick, who was Omar Thornton... and did you even know that Colin Ferguson is Black?

Nope, these are "hate facts" and taboo.  "Progressive" policy is to "de-stigmatize" mental illness and "fight racism" so that all freedom can be eradicated, replaced by controls on everyone suitable for keeping schizophrenics and savages under control.

"When was the last mass shooting in your country TPC?"

Good question, there have been three in the UK in my lifetime, that I can recall off the top of my head.

There was one not far from here in Whitehaven (I know, I know) about five years ago. Pretty little town. I think there were around a dozen people killed just randomly, IIRC.

Then there was a school shooting in Dunblane in Scotland in the mid-90's, one young boy survived by hiding in his teacher's desk. His name was Andy Murray and he grew up to be an international tennis star. I think about 25 or so kids and teachers died.

Then there was Hungerford in the mid 80's, a guy with an AK47 went round shooting up random people in the street. Again about 25 or so died as far as I can remember.

That's it for my lifetime, I remember reading about three cops who were shot in London in the mid '60's, but they were killed in a shootout with gangsters, so I'm not sure if that counts as a random mass shooting.

Whitey's Conspiracy said...

License gun possession. Make people affirmatively prove their mental fitness and good character before buying & posessing them. Require that they be locked in a heavy duty gun cabinet when not in use and subject to inspection by law enforcement at any time. Register all guns in a ballistics database. Serialize ammunition. Outlaw carrying them in public, either open or concealed.

We never hear the left talk about that. Funnie is that....

Also, we never hear the left talk about how much money these liberal blue states have cut from mental health care.

Another thing we never hear the left talk about is how they teamed up with the ACLU to pass laws that make it damn near impossible to stop the mentally ill from committing mass shootings or hurting others. See the Colorado theater shooter or the navy yard shooter...

Politicians need to address the laws surrounding treatment of mental illness, specifically mental illness in young men. But, in our PC world discussing laws to involuntarily commit mentally ill people isn't allowed. Family members can't even commit an obviously mentally ill adult. Instead, politicians continue to want to take guns from law abiding citizens.

Obama lectures and makes ever damn thing about himself, he doesn't discuss the real issue. Last month 60 people were murdered in Chicago, a 13 year record. Zero word from Barry on gang violence.

Until we as a nation are willing to discuss the real issues, mental health laws, these heinous crimes will continue regardless of gun laws.

Did you read the accompanying piece I ............never mind.

PilotX said...

"Conventional wisdom suggests that the reduction of funding for social welfare policies during the 1980s is the result of a conservative backlash against the welfare state. With such a backlash, it should be expected that changes in the policies toward involuntary commitment of the mentally ill reflect a generally conservative approach to social policy more generally. In this case, however, the complex of social forces that lead to less restrictive guidelines for involuntary commitment are not the result of conservative politics per se, but rather a coalition of fiscal conservatives, law and order Republicans, relatives of mentally ill patients, and the practitioners working with those patients. Combined with a sharp rise in homelessness during the 1980s, Ronald Reagan pursued a policy toward the treatment of mental illness that satisfied special interest groups and the demands of the business community, but failed to address the issue: the treatment of mental illness"

The abstract from the piece I posted. Certain individuals could actually read it and it may answer their questions. Just saying.

The Economist, in June:

“The regularity of mass killings breeds familiarity. The rhythms of grief and outrage that accompany them become — for those not directly affected by tragedy — ritualised and then blend into the background noise. That normalisation makes it ever less likely that America’s political system will groan into action to take steps to reduce their frequency or deadliness. Those who live in America, or visit it, might do best to regard them the way one regards air pollution in China: an endemic local health hazard which, for deep-rooted cultural, social, economic and political reasons, the country is incapable of addressing. This may, however, be a bit unfair. China seems to be making progress on pollution.”

I went to see the independent film "The Black Panthers" yesterday. It reminded me of what the Panthers stood for: "Love of its people", and the good it did for our children and our community. Looking back, the Panthers were our last line of defense as a united people after the assassination of MLK.

Hoover and the FBI destroyed the Panthers who were the 'courage and pride' of Black America. The term, "I'm Black and I'm proud" actually came from the Panthers.

I highly recommend this historical document. It will have you cheering and crying, esp if you are as old as I am.

Bobby Seale still lives in Oakland today. Years ago, he made a run to be Mayor of Oakland but lost.

The 60s and early 70s were a flash in time of "high hope" for Blacks...their dignity, respect for each other, food for the hungry, food for the children, education for the children, community 'protection' and 'safety' for its people...it was a great era for Blacks and America...

Sadly, it's gone, snuffed out by the FBI and our government.

anon@ 8:14AM:
A good friend of mine met Bobby Seale while training for a canvassing job. He invited her in and they had a long conversation (mostly him telling stories) while she blew off the training in favor of a conversation with history. His wife served them tea. She confessed to him that he was one of her heroes, and he steered her toward helping his daughter with her effort to get trees planted in urban areas.
The times have really changed. Whereas the Panthers got the governor of California (Ronnie the Idiot) to pass gun control laws with a quickness by showing up strapped at the Capitol in Sacramento, now days such behavior by anyone darker than a Tea Partier (or a Cliven Bundy supporter), would likely result in them being shot with a sniper rifle from the cowardly safety of the armored vehicle they got from the defense department.

As a percentage of society, blacks are the biggest law breakers, drains on society, troublemakers. Not all blacks of course. Most are middle class and normal folks. But as a percentage of the population, blacks are the scourge of our society and liberals refuse to acknowledge that in the press.

Straight from the Panther's lawyer:

I will never forget standing next to Elaine, as I did months later in growing horror, as she threatened KQED-TV host Bill Schechner over the telephone. "I will kill you motherfucker," she promised him in her machete voice, if he went through with plans to interview the former Panther Chairman, Bobby Seale. Seale had gone into hiding after Huey expelled him from the Party in August. As I learned long afterwards, Seale had been whipped — literally — and then personally sodomized by Huey with such violence that he had to have his anus surgically repaired by a Pacific Heights doctor who was a political supporter of the Panthers. A Party member told me later, "You have to understand, it had nothing to do with sex. It was about power." But in the Panther world, as I also came to learn, nothing was about anything except power

Huey Newton raped Bobby Seale.

"I'll try to check out the movie, it sounds interesting."

It's showing at Landmark Theaters, which is the Piedmont Theater in your area. I understand it's another famous theater like the Grand. What's with all of these famous theaters in Oakland?

Hmmmmm. I wonder where is StillaPanther2 is at? Is he hiding like Bobby Seale? BTW, Huey was killed in the streets of Oakland. It was drug related. Huey started his slide downward when Bobby Seale, while in Algeria, spoke out against the Panthers becoming an organization of food support for the black community and it's children.

This is where the internal battle began between the two. It was strictly a difference in ideology. Seale wanted the Panthers to fight the government and FBI. Huey saw the futility of doing that and saw it as a way of annihilation for the Panthers. Hence, the split in the Panthers.

This film documentary by all involved from the supporters of the Panthers, including liberal Whites from NYC to CA, was fascinating. You will laugh at some events, cry at others, hate both Hoover and Reagan...and leave sad the Panthers did not survive, but glad and amazed that the Panthers happened.

It leaves one wondering and thinking that had the Panthers survived, this country would be different and the black community would certainly be infused with the dignity due a human being.....

Mercy.

It's impossible to hate Ray-gun. He is a national treasure, just ask Kinky.

In total numbers, whites are the biggest law breakers, drains on society, troublemakers. Not all whites of course. Most are middle class and normal folks. But as a percentage of the population, whites are the scourge of our society and conservatives refuse to acknowledge that in the press.

This time the killer was just as black as Obama is. Congrats, you people are catching up on the spree murder front. Eventually, will you do that at 8 times the rate of whites, as with the rest of the murders?

High rates of black violence in the late twentieth century are a matter of historical fact and the trends reached their peak not in the land of Jim Crow but in the North. Look it up.

Black folks blame their incarceration rates on “the system,” but blacks have long been part of running that system. Black crime and incarceration rates are happening under the control of black mayors and city councils. The most violent cities in the United States today are run by blacks. Fact.
