That is one sure way to get out of working Black Friday. Pardon the black humor, but as a current Walmart employee I am pretty certain this is the sentiment of most of my coworkers alongside sympathy for the victims. It is possible to have two conflicting trains of thoughts at the same time.

33. Update - seems shooter turned gun on himself

https://www.cnn.com/2022/11/22/us/chesapeake-virginia-walmart-shooting

Details on exactly how many people were killed or injured likely won’t be available until later Wednesday because investigators were still sweeping the store overnight to look for additional victims or people who may be hiding


The shooter is believed to be among the dead, Kosinski said, noting it’s not believed any law enforcement officers fired shots during the response.

Investigators believe the shooter was an employee or former employee of the store who opened fire on other employees in a break room, a law enforcement source tells CNN.

It is believed the shooter at some point turned the gun on himself, according to the source.

29. Not until a violent (hopefully peaceful but that's unlikely I fear) cleavage of the nation occurs.

The 2nd Amendment is one of several longwave national suicide pacts embedded within the US Constitution.

Even here on DU I wager that you perhaps couldn't get 75% to agree to do away with it. Gun humping runs deep across all facets of American life.

23. Most police unions support some form of control

Here in Indiana they just passed an extra insane open carry law that was fiercely opposed by the State Police. It's extra insane because police are not allowed to ask a person if there's a weapon in the car during a traffic stop unless there is suspicion of a crime being committed with a weapon. In other words, they are now being forced to walk up to the vehicles not only blind but with both hands tied behind their backs. Within 2 weeks of the law being passed a local 24 year old officer in the small town near where I live was fatally shot during a routine traffic stop. This was the first officer killed in the line of duty in this small farm town of 6k ever.

31. Because some are only injured, they are tending the wounded who hopefully won't die.

Chasing down an active shooter in a store full of people and finally stopping him, but he did a lot of damage.

Their first goal is to make sure anyone who is injured gets medical treatment and it's a huge location to track everyone who might have dived behind something to hide and maybe still caught a bullet.

55. Attention Walmart Shooters! 223 Ammo Blue Light Special in Sporting Goods!!

NB: Headline is Sarcasm, Sarcasm, Sarcasm

For many years I was a member of the NRA

Quit when it became the NARA—National Assault Rifle Ass

Basically, this was the same time as President Bush. He quit because it was clear the NRA had become the vile and virulently antigovernment organization which it remains today.



It is worthwhile to take the time to read the entire text of President Bush’s letter resigning his life-time membership. This is available on Snopes

[link:https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/bush-nra-resignation/|]

One might also consider that Wayne LaPierre, the particular target of his opprobrium, now leads the NARA. A quick interweb search will turn up information that LaPierre seems to know little of guns, is an appalling shot and an even worse hunter. Total tool.

Also, know this time was a pistol. Which is actually irrelevant. The problem is too many idiots with guns. However, if you look on the web, you'll find a lot of gun-nut sites claiming that this proves that "modern sporting rifles" (ie assault rifles) are not the problem. Nope, won't provide links, don't want to give them the clicks
