    Fair enough -- these days you can excuse just about anything if you wave a flag and shout "MAGA!" often and loud enough...

    That seems to be the case. Just ask Franklin Graham.

    No mass shooting, but you can try again.

    Well actually, yes there was.

    Battle of Agincourt - Wikipedia

    "This battle is notable for the use of the English longbow in very large numbers, with the English and Welsh archers forming up to 80 percent of Henry's army. The decimation of the French cavalry at their hands is regarded as an indicator of the decline of cavalry and the beginning of the dominance of ranged weapons on the battlefield."

    Technically, a "mass shooting" is defined (at least by law enforcement) as a single shooter against multiple targets... what you've got here is the Medieval equivalent of bringing a knife to a gunfight.

    I wouldn't have done it--but I wouldn't call it "really, really poor judgement" because that's a subjective and inflammatory statement. But perhaps your vision cuts through flesh and bone and can see the evil in this mans heart---I mean, he must be, he's wearing a "Trump Hat", right?

    You really haven't read anything I've said beyond what you want to justify your reply, have you?

    Let me try to be clear, and I'll use big, happy letters:

    Openly bringing a firearm to the scene of a scene of a mass shooting where almost a dozen people have been killed is an incredibly bad, not to mention insensitive choice, and seems to be quite irresponsible. The hat is immaterial. The flag is immaterial. The choice to bring a weapon to that location is the only, and I will stress ONLY, choice that concerns me.

    Now, if you think his idea was a super-neat idea, that's your business. I strongly disagree.

    Regardless of that, though, please don't put words in my mouth. It's unnecessary and deceptive, not to mention very rude.

    I didn't see anything obnoxious. The only thing he said was something like "some simple support and a 'god bless you' would go a long way right now" and then he walked away because he obviously didn't want to be in the spot light. Like I said, I don't think what this guy did was 'smart', but it wasn't as dumb as these overreactions.

    The shoe fits.

    No evil; just stupidity.

    His intentions -- to politicize a tragedy -- were clear enough. Some people wear their heart on their sleeves; this guy wore it on his head.

    Good point. Whenever I don't want to be the center of attention, I grab a large flag of some sort, strap a burner on and march to where there are a lot cameras.

    He's just making sure no one forgets who the real victims are in all these shootings that keep happening.

    Either he's a total moron, or this was a false flag operation.

    Is there something wrong with the spontaneous and impassioned celebration of a sacred, and truly uniquely American event like a school shooting?
