    We feel the same way, Tim. 
    Stay safe.

    Hey, wouldn’t be the anniversary of our country without a mass shooting, right?  This is who we are now…..no abortions please, we need those babies to grow up to be target practice.

    i saw a twitter thread from the washington examiner and everyone is already calling him antifa. his own twitter page shows that he attended several trump rallies. i guess they needs to paint him as antifa so they can get out in front of it.

    This is absolutely heartbreaking, but that alias along with his face are bloody hilarious.

    He's 6' and 120 lbs.
    If he's indeed the shooter, I say let one member of each victim's family have 15 minutes alone with him, one by one. No guns.

    We're about 30 mins from Highland Park and our parade and fest got cancelled.  How the hell do you tell a 5 year old who is so excited for a parade and fireworks show that everything is cancelled because of a mass shooting???  What a horrible fucking world this is.

    Why do the rights of those who insist they have the constitutional blessing to own such deadly weapons outweigh the right of others to life -- especially since a majority of Americans support more comprehensive gun control? And why, for instance, should moms, dads, kids or grandparents have to so often run for their lives?

    https://www.cnn.com/2022/07/05/politics/illinois-parade-mass-shooting-gun-violence-analysis/index.html

    David Goldenberg, a witness at the Highland Park, Illinois, parade shooting, said his youngest child asked before going to bed if there will be a shooter at every Fourth of July parade.

    "My little one asked last night before going to bed, 'Is there is always going to be a shooter at every Fourth of July parade?'" he told CNN's John Berman.
    "My middle one didn't want to go to bed until he talked to one of his best friends. ... He needed to hear their voice," he continued. "And my older one, she didn't sleep well."

    I'll admit, thoughts of a possible active shooter being around the fire works display in our town last night did creep into my mind a few times while my kids, and many others, played frisbee and tag waiting for it to start. Never thought that before.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Sorry, kids, mass shootings are now a way of life in America, because that's what republicans want.

    Great country, ‘Murcia.

    Aiden McCarthy’s photo was shared across Chicago-area social media groups in the hours after the July 4 parade shooting in Highland Park, accompanied by pleas to help identify the 2-year-old who had been found at the scene bloodied and alone and to reunite him with his family.

    On Tuesday, friends and authorities confirmed that the boy’s parents, Kevin McCarthy, 37, and Irina McCarthy, 35, were among seven people killed in the tragedy.

    “At two years old, Aiden is left in the unthinkable position; to grow up without his parents,” wrote Irina Colon on a GoFundMe account she created for the family and Aiden, who was reunited with his grandparents Monday evening.

    Incredibly sad.  More lives lost and/or ruined because it is so easy to purchase fire arms in this country.
