“Witnesses say a 24-year-old contestant from Baltimore who had been eliminated at a video game tournament at a Jacksonville, Fla., pizzeria fatally shot two of his competitors, including a 21-year-old man from West Hills, Calif., before killing himself. Authorities say 12 victims had gunshot wounds, and two others suffered injuries while escaping. “Jacksonville is mourning,” Mayor Lenny Curry said. “We have faced an occurrence that is all too common.”
For gundamentalists like NRA’s Dana Loesch, this tragedy will only become more ammo to claim that violent video games (amongst other harmless pastimes like movies and music) lead to violent ends. It’s never the easy access to guns.
When will it end?
I hope that the good people of Florida realize that their Governor (who is now running for the Senate), said (after the Parkland killings) that he will do everything in his power to stop shit like this from happening, and well, shit like this happened in Florida again.
If Rick Scott gets to the Senate, he will weaken gun laws more.
