American Gun Violence

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f736e1299e8>

Trigger warning: we are going to track stories of people murdering others, often times children, with guns in America.

I don’t really know how to deal with this, but I think that if I don’t somehow track it, it will be lost in my hidden world, and if we can not act against gun violence it will end us.

This thread is for link sharing and discussion. By creating discrete containers, I hope people can navigate this from where they are. If you have a user account on talkgroup, you can Mute this thread (look for the button for tracking a topic).

Two children — a 6-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl — and a man in his 20s were killed when a gunman with a rifle opened fire and sprayed bullets seemingly at random Sunday at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern California.

At a news briefing Monday, Gilroy Police Chief Scot Smithee identified the shooter as 19-year-old Santino William Legan, who was killed by police, bringing the death toll to four. More than a dozen people were injured.

The police chief said the gunman had used an SKS “AK-47 style” rifle that had been legally purchased in Las Vegas on July 9. Smithee later added that Legan was a Gilroy native who seems to have family in Nevada.

Smithee said authorities were still looking into the possibility of a second suspect. However, he said, if another person is involved, “we just don’t know in what way.”

Includes gut-retching first-hand accounts.

I couldn’t keep up if I wanted.
