Condolences again to the friends and familes of both Christina Grimmie and the 50 people who died and the others injured, and all the other people personally affected by it and those who are now going to react a little different going to show and out for the night.
I don't believe in coincidences.
The clubs were minutes apart.
Did the killer last night (even if he had been planning it in his mind), somehow get the idea at this time, seeing how easy it was to get a gun in a club
a few blocks away?
For those not from the US and not familiar with Florida, it is a really big state and the USA a really big place.
Yet two shootings in 3 days at clubs that are for entertainment and having a good time?
As there is nothing to suggest, and police say that the horrible death of Christina is not connected officially, it boggles the mind to think that coincidentally in the same moments in time, someone happens to pick a club so close. And use guns.
Also, for all we know, at Christina's show, many more could have been hurt, if not for her brother tackling him and then somehow he shot himself.
What are the connections-
sorry folks, but the connection is the guns and the bullets and the easy access to them, and the easy way they can be bought in one state, put in a car
and bought into any state at all, even the ones like NY or California that have great gun control laws, (as one cannot stop a vehicle and search without some sort of reason, so if a "bad person" drives without being nervous, and has nothing wrong with the car, they freely can move from point A to b to c to d, etc.
YES, it is the guns.
They can be taken off the streets (if not fully rid of), but it needs more security machines to know someone has one, and the more important point is-
because of guns being so legal, and in states like Florida almost anyone can have a concealed weapon (but not California or NY), how then does one
tell the good guys from the bad guys?
I would personally rather be safe than sorry. I don't see in the modern age any reason for anyone to have guns and bullets.
and more people want something done, but the NRA is the #1 loudest corporate lobby group and until recently, no one fought or mentioned their name
so they had the forum all to themselves. But it is changing.
But I do think this guy, be it he hated Gays and it was a hate crime, or it is fundamentalist , either way hate is hate and it took guns to kill.
Easy access to guns.
(yes the NRA folks will shout out, it could be knives, cars, etc, but nothing so surely kills like guns, and from remembering what they said about
John Lennon, the bullets are made to kill. Not injure but to kill.
Makes me sick.
and also that more than 1/2 the country wants something done, and a smaller amount won't budge, and that group has the power at this very moment.
