I was just up in Gurnee, IL last winter to visit friends. Navy's basic training takes place there.

This is what we should be doing, a daily reminder of the costs of gun situation in America.

This amount of freedom? In THIS economy?
 
2022-08-14 10:19:15 PM  
Its starting! it's starting! It's happening noooowww. Runs in circles, arms flailing.

Video on Twitter shows a farkload of cops.

So either this is more than a couple of people getting shot in the parking lot, or it was a boring Sunday night and nobody had anything else to do.

Goddammit Donald THAT IS NOT THE FBI.

Mass shooing, or just like when there's a shooting at our local zoo between people having an argument and that's basically normal?
 
2022-08-14 10:19:59 PM  
But is the shooter a thug, a terrorist or just mentally ill?
 
2022-08-14 10:20:37 PM  
"Throughout the park"

So more than one gunman, probably. That's pretty novel.
 
2022-08-14 10:21:22 PM  
Yay! America is a polite society, because it is armed.

I hope it was an AR-15. Those are my favorite murder and mayhem tools.

1.5 mass shootings per day in 2022.

Have to get everybody's blood up so we can argue about whether it's a tragedy or just one of those things that happens on that side of the tracks.

Six Flags used to have gunfights in the streets when I was a little kid.  That's how caj is was back in the day.

Just to spice the normal progression up, I need to know if the $21 drink mugs are okay.

Some of them park security?

Didn't the CEO just say he didn't want to be a walmart theme park but a target one?  Seems like he got his wish

Cause it's Chicago. The most important city in the world.  Just ask any Chicagoan

I'm bummed really. Great America has a warm place in my coal black heart from my childhood.

and just the other day I think it was the Minnesota SC show down a lawsuit to allow guns in the state fair.

It was some Midwest state

2022-08-14 10:24:08 PM  
They're now saying on the local news that it was a drive-by. Probably just gang bangers shooting at each other.
 
2022-08-14 10:24:30 PM  
Got 15 minutes? The podcast "Dumb People with Terrible Ideas" did a recent episode on gun control and Uvalde. It's insane how little things have changed since that crazy guy shot up the McDonalds in San Diego back when I was a kid.

Thanks, Scalia and the NRA.

Sure. But a breaking news story that happens more than once a day isn't breaking news any more.

Looks like they managed three hits according to WBBM-TV.

What's mostly changed is that we were shocked by the San Ysidro McDonald's incident.

Oh, well, forget it, then.
 
2022-08-14 10:28:06 PM  
"only" five people at a crowded six flags?  I am guessing that this started as a fight of some sort and then someone involved pulled out a gun, shot, hit some bystanders, and fled (as opposed to some nut job showing up specifically planning to shoot people).

It's sad that you're right. Like, unless this shooting has a body count in the double digits, it's just a day to day thing.

At least there's a gurnee handy.

That shooting *wrecked* me as a kid. I was like 8 or 9, had nightmares for a year.

Seems like there needs to be a flowchart to determine how important it is to mention in the news.  Just in case we have a day where we have two or three near-simultaneous mass shootings.  Wow, now that's a scary thought, that these assholes might get together on 4chan or 8kun and coordinate that.
