The REAL Victims (Sarcasm Alert)

Aren’t school shootings a big bummer? Yes! They are! But, dear readers, be sure to save a few of those Thoughts’n’Prayers® for the real victims of this week’s school shooting in Florida: Michael and Lisa Morrison, owners of Sunrise Tactical Supply of Coral Springs. That’s right, the people who sold Nikolas Cruz his AR-15:

The shop, whose displays had been stripped of any rifles or other guns Thursday evening, will remain closed indefinitely.

Its owners, who live in Coral Springs, are distraught, Rudman said.

“The tremendous sense of responsibility in this situation and just horribleness that they feel that one of their weapons fell into the hands of this maniac,” Rudman said. “They are scared — not just for their safety — but more importantly about how the reaction is going to be for the rest of the community as they try to reenter it.”

They are scared for their safety, you guys. As they try to “reenter” the community.

Give me a fucking break.

They sell weapons to people but they are scared for their safety? Oh boo fucking hoo. Conservative tears, you guys. What, thoughts and prayers aren’t good enough for you? Amazing.

Let me also add, one of their weapons did not “fall into the hands of this maniac,” as the lawyer says. They sold it to him. It was a retail transaction. Maybe you guys should think about opening an ice cream shop next time. Something a little less lethal.

    Boy, that’ll cut into their “Valentine’s Week Extravagunza!” bottom line! Yikes!!

    I don’t know if it’s from the same article but this:

    “Michael and Lisa Morrison were “completely shocked and mortified that anything like this would happen,” their lawyer Douglas Rudman said in a statement.”

    would make me feel better if they were “mortified” in the original sense of the word’s ancient roman etymology.

    When I saw the photos of this person (a 19 year old “man”), that was able to legally buy a weapon and extra clips and the ammo, I wondered what could have gone through the mind of the shop owner that sold it to him. But, on a larger scale, we are selling weapons to crazy people all over the world, and we seem to be dismayed when they kill people with those weapons. Who would have dreamed that someone would get shot.

      “we are selling weapons to crazy people all over the world, and we seem to be dismayed when they kill people with those weapons.”

      Well, we’ve learned a lot in the past century on that score.

      While we still start, advise on, assist and actually fight in various “proxy” wars, we’ve turned the R&D for a lot of our weapons systems from that of a bunch of eggheadz in the lab to actual real world testing. We sell our aircraft, tanks, small arms and other materiel and ordnance to ALL parties that we are able to and watch how they perform WITHOUT the attentand trauma of burying thousands or millions of our own troops and civilians. This is seen as progress in some quarters.

  3. Sick to your stomach from hearing the monster offer his prayers for the victims while sidestepping the gun issue conveniently with some nonsense about addressing mental health issues? It’s time for a visit from Granny Standing For Truth to explain the value of a prayer coming from Trump. Enjoy.

    Trump’s prayers are a worthless bag of polluted air. Isa 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: Pro 18:7 When a fool speaks, he is ruining himself; he gets caught in the trap of his own words.

    Not once has Trump ever confessed his sins, humbled himself, ask for forgiveness, or repented(changed his way of thinking). Nope! Instead, he told more lies, lie after lie after lie.

    @Trump–>John 8:44 You come from your father, the devil, and you desire to do what your father wants you to do. The devil was a murderer from the beginning. He has never been truthful. He doesn’t know what the truth is. Whenever he tells a lie, he’s doing what comes naturally to him. He’s a liar and the father of lies. Consider your ways!

    His preachers and prophet/prophetess are: Isa_56:11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter. Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ravening = greedy; rapacious: – extortion.

    Trump attempts to accuse Hillary and President Obama comes to mind Haman who plotted to have Mordecai hung, but was hung in his place.

    Hab 2:6 Won’t all of them ridicule him, directing clever sayings and riddles at him, like: “‘How horrible it will be for the one who makes himself rich with what is not his own and makes himself wealthy on loans. How long will this go on?’

    Word of advice to Trump and Congress–>Zec 7:10 Don’t oppress widows, orphans, foreigners, and poor people. And don’t even think of doing evil to each other.

    Every low down dirty trick, false accusation, and lie that Trump pulls or tells is gonna backfire on him!!!!

    President Obama as President—>Jer_22:16 He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well with him: was not this to know me? saith the LORD.

    “Okay, I’m gonna get down off my soap box, but y’all needed some Jesus truth up in in here today. Before you throw your stones at me, I thought I’d let you know that it’d be a waste of time. Bye Bye!”

      From your lips to the slackerxmillenial nonvoter’s ear!

      • Demo,

        I am the slacker generation. I more or less defined it. We were the last hippies. That doesn’t mean that I never accomplished anything. Just that it all came too easy. Beale is just a couple of years younger than me. But no one would ever call her a slacker. Gen-Xers are some of my favorite people. But damn those lazy, self-defeated millenials. If you don’t care enough to vote you only have yourself to blame. I’m counting on Four million new black voters that registered at showings of The Black Panther to save us all.

        Granny Standing For Truth is alright. That was her Jesus rant. I just quoted it. Worthless bag of polluted air…

    @ Flying Junior:

    I was being a bit sarcastic but I have been over at Gin and Tacos for the last 18 months dealing with people who are all, like, “If you don’t give BernGarJill the keys to the DNC’s car, we’ll just stay home!”. Apparentlt they did and that worked out verrrrrrrry well, not.

    I’m fed up with people wh say/think that giving the election to KNOWN fucking scumbagz could have any upside–you’re not them, they know who they are.
