Police Response To Uvalde School Shooter Delayed By Cop Thumbs Up Cop Asses

You actually did sign up for this.

The Associated Press reports that "Frustrated onlookers urged police officers to charge into the Texas elementary school" while the shooter was inside killing 19 fourth-graders and two teachers, but that it actually took between 40 minutes and an hour before a tactical team from the Border Patrol entered the classroom and killed the shooter. The good guys with guns stood by, it seems.

“Go in there! Go in there!” nearby women shouted at the officers soon after the attack began, said Juan Carranza, 24, who saw the scene from outside his house, across the street from Robb Elementary School in the close-knit town of Uvalde. Carranza said the officers did not go in.

Remember how in 2020 the freaking US Attorney General of the United States (and all of rightwing media) insisted we needed to be more appreciative of police and stop complaining when they killed unarmed Black people, or maybe someday a terrible thing would happen and there'd be no police to save the day? Seems like that's already the case in Uvalde, although we haven't seen any reports that the town ever tried to "defund" its police.

Herschel Walker Will Stop Mass Shootings With Department Of Looking At Young Men Who Are Looking At Young Women Who Are Looking At Social Media

Finally, a fresh new idea for stopping mass shootings!

When we last checked in with OFFICIAL REPUBLICAN GEORGIA SENATE NOMINEE Herschel Walker, he was expressing shock and surprise to learn that Donald Trump thinks the 2020 election was stolen. What? Donald Trump? Thinks the election was stolen? Herschel Walker had never heard him say that! Reporters say that! Not Donald Trump. Pshaw and hooey and poppycock!

Of course, that was earlier in the week. Now Republicans have shifted into Blame New Mass Shooting On Stuff That Isn't Guns mode. And never let it be said that Herschel Walker does not have new ideas. Try this one on for size:

Judge Boxwine Doesn't Know Why Y'all So 'Triggered' By Seeing One Little Gun

And some more Fox News hot takes from coverage of America's weekly high-casualty mass shooting!

The wingnut hot takes on the Uvalde, Texas, mass shooting, where 19 beloved children and two of their favorite teachers were gunned down in cold blood, are coming hot and heavy. Why can't wingnuts just be emotionally gutted like the rest of us, and vow that these things shall never again happen in this country? Because that's not what they do.

Here's a new mini-batch, starting with Judge Boxwine AKA Jeanine Boxwine AKA Boxwine Pirro, who doesn't understand why all ye libs are so "triggered" just by seeing a little gun. No, don't worry! This isn't a slurring defense of the school shooters' bad guns! It's a defense of the security guards' good guns!

Kyrsten Sinema Almost Ready To ‘Start Conversations’ About Not Letting Kids Get Gunned Down In School

‘Useless' is almost to weak a description.

Tuesday, 19 children and two teachers were murdered execution-style in a Texas elementary school, which really put Congress on the spot to actually do something about gun violence. However, as you know, Republicans are all monsters and theoretical Democrats Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema just love their filibuster. So, that’s about it. Senate Judiciary Chairman Dick Durbin seems confident that we’ll pick things up after the long weekend.


Shortly after the massacre, while they were still trying to identify the now unrecognizable corpses of murdered children, Manchin vowed he’d do “anything” to move “common sense gun legislation forward” in the Senate, but he still wouldn’t budge on reforming the filibuster, which he dismissed as “the easy way out."

“The filibuster should not be needed at all,” he told reporters. “We’d be talking about throwing out the one tool we have that keeps us working, at least talking, together."

There aren’t 10 votes in the Senate GOP’s death cult for "common sense” of any sort, but this moron sincerely believes the filibuster facilitates compromise instead of handing Mitch McConnell a legislative veto.
