Meh.... It's like when you hear of civilian deaths in a war zone. It obviously is sad, but you learn to not care anymore.

This is such a common occurrence I don't even think the word tragedy works anymore. They're not even headline news now, I didn't even know about this one until opening this thread

There is a good clip on their website of a CNN interview with a 12 year old boy who was hiding in a closet with the rest of his class. He says something to the effect of “I had my hands on an aluminum baseball bat, just in case. If I was going out, I was going out fighting.” Watch the interviewer. I thought she was going to succumb to tears when he said that. Hard to hear as a parent.

It's ok, the Senators sent out their prayers.

My city is outraged at 3 kids robbing another kid whilst these incidents in the USA are basically a daily occurrence. Absolutely crazy.

If they can forget about 20 dead elementary children without any meaningful change then there's nothing that will make them wake up

I thought when 58 were killed and over 700 injured in Vegas there might have been a little hope for change but sadly nothing. The money from the gun lobby is too strong for these idiots, even a mass shooting of the 100 senators at the senate itself probably wouldn't change a thing.

Keith Byrne was trying to do the right thing. After the Marine Corps veteran accidentally cut off another car, he was ready to apologize at the next light.

Before he could, a passenger got out of the cut-off car and shot him square in the chest.

The mortally wounded Byrne, 41, was also prepared to fight back. With his own gun, he fired two shots at 22-year-old Andre Sinclair, and Sinclair died of his injuries at the hospital two days later. Byrne died on scene.
