Fuckin' A. Dude was crack. 3 shots in around 10 seconds with a shitty mail-order Italian bolt action. Not particularly difficult range, though, under 100 yards. Nothing for an ex-Marine.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Just what white-nationalists spree-shooters need: military discipline and advanced weapons training. I mean, look what it did for Oswald.
And the reverse of that, equally dangerous, is to increase the proportion of right-wing nut-jobs in the US armed forces...

On the cutting edge of dealing with the mass shooting problem in the US. Or not.

'Walmart Removes Violent Video Game Signage, Still Sells Guns'
Walmart stores are reportedly removing "signing and displays referencing violence," including signage and playable demos for video games, following recent shootings at two of its stores.

On July 30, a gunman shot two Walmart employees and injured a police officer at a Walmart in Southaven, Mississippi. The following Saturday, on August 3, a 21-year-old man killed 22 people and wounded 24 others at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas. Days after the shooting, President Trump blamed, in part, "gruesome and grisly video games," as well as mental health issues, for mass shootings in America, despite evidence that suggests otherwise.

This week, Walmart sent employees a notice titled "Immediate Action: Remove Signing and Displays Referencing Violence." Freelance writer Kenneth Shepard posted an image of the notice on Twitter, and other copies have circulated on Reddit. "Review your store for any signing or displays that contain violent images or aggressive behavior," the notice reads. "Remove from the salesfloor or turn off these items immediately." It's unclear how widely the notice was circulated.

...

Notably, the company’s memo does not mention the removal of actual guns for sale from Walmart stores. Despite pleas from gun control activists and employees, Walmart said this week that there's "been no change in [its gun] policy," according to USA Today.

If Walmart were taking this seriously they would have removed the Rap from the CD racks as well.

Walmart has a problem:

Since they sell guns, they can't have Target like "no guns inside" policy.

I don't get it. What is the thinking process here? Do they know that it's bullshit but assume some percentage --better than zero-- thinks this way so it's better than nothing? I don't get it.

Never mind. It's just the same problem everywhere. We are unbelievably full of shit, and we demand that everyone else is too. :lol:
We all know or think we know what everyone wants to hear and that's what we give them.

There is no honesty in business.

But to call it out is to make yourself vulnerable to the same demand for conformity; no real talk, no real solutions, just shut the fuck up and toe the line.
