If they had staged a scene like that in a Hollywood move, they couldn't have done it any better, and the critics would call it 'unrealistic'.

Just remember it's not a gun problem. It's a mental health problem. And any attempts to deal with mental health problems are to be swept under the rug. While we stare down the barrel of the gun.

Ya, that's just absurd..Last year the STL PD, City Gov.  and the media PLEADED with people to not do that.

I'm still BAFFLED by this whole culture of "sitting in cars"  thing that goes on mostly in the African American community...No one has been able to explain to me why people are out sitting in cars (with kids too) at all hours of the day and night. The reason I say this, is because almost ALL of the shootings that happen, seem to happen to people "sitting in cars"..  Usually with another car driving up to that parked car and shooting into it..If they were in their houses, this shat wouldn't happen..But sitting in a car at 2:30am, you're a farking
sitting duck to any creepers that have issues with anyone in that car..And they really don't care if kids are
there or not.

Still..No one has been able to explain WHY this whole "sitting in cars" things seems to be a thing...

These are some of the recent examples;

"3500 block of Russell after 1 a.m. Friday. SLMPD reported a man was found by a car with a puncture wound to the back of his head. "

"..outside Turner Park around 2:25 p.m. Police said the two were inside a black Infiniti sedan when they were shot. ."

"Young lady. Leg literally hanging outside of the car," Wright said. "And I believe there's two other passengers, one in the back and one in the front. But it's just ridiculous that--broad daylight--this is what we have to deal with. "

They get shot if they drive while black.  You could at least let them use their car for some other purpose.

Man it really seems like you're blaming Black people for getting shot because of being inside of a car. Not a great look.

Also "If they were in their houses, this shat wouldn't happen" is demonstrably false as this also happens all the time.

Maybe it's actually the fault of a culture of guns and gun violence, and not the fault of "Black people in cars"?

Glad it wasn't just me who got confused by this leap. How do you go from "people are being killed by celebratory gunfire" to "too many black people sit in cars." At best you could call it victim blaming, maybe? Really bizarre.

2) What point are you trying to make?



1) This tweet (one like it) was making the rounds on the NRA Twitter feed yesterday morning. Grabbed and posted the wrong one, but the point stands.
2) That there are folks extolling gun culture on the 4th, claiming there wouldn't BE a 4th without guns. Meanwhile, in Mass Shooting USA...

"Hi, I'm a racist 2A shiatbag.  Let me explain to you my theory that guns aren't the problem, because black people deserve to be shot for being in public when people are shooting guns illegally".

You need to withdraw from civilization, you're lost.  Just hide away from decent people for the remainder of your life and the world will be better for it.

No, if it came across that way...It's my poor writing...It's just a cultural thing I don't get..
Yes, there must be a reason, and whatever reason it is must be common to a lot of people.
And I'm saying that yes, it might be a problem as to why people are sitting ducks for crime.
If they were not visible, they would not be as vulnerable..That's all I'm getting at..

It also makes them vulnerable to random gunfire with very little shielding to protect them. Shots fired
into the air or out and about randomly in anger or celebration..Especially in neighborhoods where
that's common..

Except none of those examples say anyone was just sitting in a car.  They may have been shot as they were parking, getting out, etc.   Not sure where your train of logic is coming from.

Whoever tweeted that clearly didn't major in US History. Militias were notoriously ineffective - prone to desertion and routes. The professional officers from France as well as the French navy were 100% responsible for independence from England. Citizen soldiers are a myth.
