Try making it "Guns are outlawed" day

Every year on this day, we should dedicate ourselves to speculating about his true motive, and why it was buried.  I'll go first.

I hear there was a concert attendee who was a Riker's prison guard.  This particular guard was renowned for his incorruptibility.   He had been on the job for 20 years, all on the same wing, nevger missed his overnight shift, not even once.

He was famous for never, ever falling asleep, and always seeing that the security cameras were working, even going so far as to look after a generator that kept them up during power outages.  The guard's death was crucial to the CIA, who had to make sure he would not be at his post when their 30 year plan arrived at its scheduled denouement less than 2 years later . . .

It got bump stocks outlawed, which might be the single largest gun control result of a mass shooting ever (in the us)

Damn that's a sad fact.

A survivor of the Vegas mass shooting was killed just over a year later in another mass shooting.  That's where we're at.  So if we're going to mark off days to observe the anniversaries of shootings, better just mark off and print the whole damn calendar.

Also I would sort of assume law enforcement doesn't put too much emphasis on investigating the motives of dead people as there's nothing they can do with the information

The funny part is Trump did that. But you never hear Republicans calling him a gun grabber.

I'll never forget that tragedy because it happened around the time of the birth of our son.  We were in the hospital when it happened, and it kind of put a damper on the moment.

In Canada, it is because the "news" websites were all run by one guy, just with sites that looked like a provincial and national coverage for an organization. He used social media ad purchases to replace actual news, and soon people started to (correctly, because they were scammed) that it was a wide netowork delivering news; and people began to use the _____ Strong pattern because he made it popular through those ads. It became normalized.

Anywhere else, I don't know. But I do know that former Prime Minister Stephen Harper coordinates right wing political party campaigns in eastern Europe, using Canadian tactics like social media voter suppression campaigns. So, with a little Russian troll famr bump, and his organization aready at work, ____ Strong is plausibly his ongoing contribution to literal Neo-Nazis literally everywhere.
