This one hits close to home; I went to the Gilroy Garlic Festival once or twice growing up.
But of course, more stringent gun control laws would be irresponsible in this time of national mourning, yaddah yaddah yaddah.
Stupid fucking country.

"3 killed, including a 6-year-old boy, and 15 others wounded"- reading a 6-year old was shot made me cry. This event was close to me growing up and such a regular family dopey event.

280 mass shootings in 2019, not even August

Mass shootings are now as American as apple pie and baseball

I went to this festival once, years back. It's still a short drive from where I live. It's such a low-key, blue-collar, generic fucking harvest festival. God fucking dammit. I can only assume the shooters figured it'd be a great chance to kill those darned brown people who stole the garlic-harvesting jobs they definitely couldn't hack doing themselves for four hours.
The shooter was some 19 year old, probably an Alex Jones type racist fascist.
Also legally bought his mass murder gun legally in Nevada
Dude, Exy, I live in San Jose. Let's go get a beer, man.
John Holmes Motherfucker
The "Binghamton Shootings" as they are imaginatively called, took place on a Friday Morning in 2009, about a block and a half from where I lived at the time, at the American Civic Association. This was mostly immigrants killed by an immigrant, so go figure. 14 dead, including the batshit crazy Perp, a Vietnam native who believed that the police were watching him sleep, and before the even sent an insane handwritten letter to a TV station beginning with the words "I AM JIVERLY WONG SHOOTING THE PEOPLE" All caps, no punctiation.
You can't imagine what a bland unimposing c1959 building the Civic Center offices are in. I must have passed by it for most of my life without taking notice. It looks like it might be a school, or a police station, or a post office, except that is none of these, so it is much more nondescript than any of them.
Maybe by coincidence, this is where they held the garlic festival for many years. They cancelled it for a couple of years after the shooting, but now it's back. Thing I might go this year.
Mothership, I'm down! If you ever see this. I'll find a more recent comment to respond to.

But Antifa is the REAL problem.
They’re targeting “journalists”!!!!
He is serious insofar as there are pundits literally calling for Antifa to be classified as a terrorist organization, while remaining silent on white nationalists.

Three shootings in America in one week, Trump and his lying builshit is surely to blame. When you have an incredulous asshole like this as President it gives people balls to do fucked up shit

"Like, who you got beef with at the Garlic Festival?"
Truer words were never spoken.
