It happened in the Springs so doesn't count as normal Colorado.

Yep. That's just West Kansas.

No, there are actual mountains in Colorado Springs. Maybe you've heard of the Rocky Mountains? Pike's Peak.

Also, what do you consider "normal Colorado", eurotrader?

Normal Colorado is not infested with evangelical nut jobs. The Springs is the home the lunatic fringe sometimes called focus on the family. See republican ken buck as an example of Springs mentality.

The gunfights on TPB were hilarious. We killed ourselves laughing whenever Ricky pulled out his gun. For some reason, I believe their depiction of trailer park violence was probably closer to reality than serious movies: dumb people making dumb decisions with dangerous toys.

Either there was a lot of shooting, or this was plain old execution. Seven people dead.
Even in a gunfight you expect people to run away.

That's a heckuva solution to having to give out party bags at the end of the shindig.

There aren't a lot of exits in a mobile home. Which is where this shooting occurred.
 
2021-05-09 7:18:17 PM  
There were children attending the party who were not wounded in the shooting.

I, too, believe that birthday celebrations are really for the children.  Normally I just excuse myself, so this was a novel approach.
 
2021-05-09 7:19:38 PM  
Are the guns ok?

Is the white Christian Republican male gun-fetishist OK?

Yeah, this one seems to be classic angry ex.

Because some men put on a huge display of This Is Why She Dumped Him.

Dude, you live there.  It's a weird, libertarian, right-wing, militaristic, ugly sprawl which doesn't zone for recreational marijuana dispensaries.  Even the view of the mountains is jacked up by the quarry.

Exactly. Colorado Springs has the weirdest vibes you will feel this side of Florida. Tis a place full of creepy people with a beautiful view.

In my experience, anything not on the front range is extremely conservative. Have you been east of I-25? Or to towns like Creede or even Cripple Creek? Spent any time in Weld County? All those places are 99% Trumpers.

Looking like a domestic violence situation murder-suicide.  Ex's need to skip to the end if they don't want to deal with a breakup.  Don't take others with you in your rage and bitterness as chances are, they were to blame for the ending of the relationship.

Not Boebert's district, but might as well be.

Ken Buck doesn't even represent the Springs.

The springs becomes more purple every year. There are still crazy pockets up north but the rest of the place is normalizing because of growth and normal people being priced out of Denver and settling here.

Thankfully I live in the Old Colorado City part of Colorado Springs. This neighborhood is full of Black Lives Matter lawn signs, Tibetan prayer flags, art, old growth trees, and hippies like me. All of my neighbors that I've met so far are super chill, super liberal Democrats with adorable babies and/or dogs.

Hate to break it to ya but the infestation has already spread throughout the state - count the orange stickers sometime as you're cruising I-25 to/from Denver:

Daedalus27: Looking like a domestic violence situation murder-suicide.


Doesn't count as a mass-shooting then.

Hell, the fact that it wasn't done with an assault weapon disqualifies it from that classification.

chuggernaught: The 2nd amendment is a curse upon this country.


Blah blah blah.

As always, you need new material.

Also, it's good to know that Colorado's roody poo laws involving certain magazines prevented this.  Oh wait...
