It says here, a man called Robert Bowers, 48, surrounded after openning fire screaming "All Jews must die!".

And guess, whose reaction is this:

"..."If there was an armed guard inside the temple, they would have been able to stop him, maybe there would have been nobody killed, except for him, frankly," he added. ..." Sheesh.

e:(News article says 'Mr. Trump', lol.)

Level the playing field.  In fact, just level everything.

Archie Bunker thought that plane hijackings could be stopped by issuing every passenger a gun as they boarded the plane. Is Trump the new Archie Bunker?

Kinda funny how this tragic event went from being about innocent people being gunned down, to quickly turning into another 'trump says something stupid, opponents react to it' things.

Apparently the drama of trumps more important.

Joy

Not that I blame atheism ... I blame crazy.  Synagogues, churches, mosques and Sikh temples have all been attacked in the US.

Because ...
1. Someone thinks G-d told them to do it ..
2. Someone wants G-d to tell them not to do it ..

When only idiots can have guns...  No that's not quite right.  When insane damn lunatics can have...  Oh wait that's not right either.  Wait, maybe only proven uncrazy people can have guns.

I'll be darned.  Crazy people CAN have guns.  Happens every day.

Eugenics prevents monsters.  Since it is missing, we can all post here.

The solution to "monsters under the bed" is to kick at the monsters until they die.

I never had monsters under my bed, BTW.  I was too real even as a kid.

The Herman Munster lies in you and I.  Will you kill both of us?  How about future generations?  Extinction will solve all those monsters.
