What is up with the camo? How utterly absurd this all is. Totally out of control gun/cop/war culture here.

16. Bluish grayish camo works well for urban environments.

Not sure if "urban" accurately describes Uvalde.

You only look like a bunch of pathetic nazis. Put down your fucking guns you fucking cowards.

A brave person does not need an instrument of death to hold them up.

26. That photo really punctuates the necessity of the Defund The Police campaign

Police officers by definition are peace keepers who patrol communities and de-escalate. That's their sole job.

These are military thugs who think and operate as a hammer and see every problem as a nail. It is a very dangerous precedent. It normalizes citizens being oppressed by the state, watched over by heavily armed militias given a broad use of force. Before you know it we have "Guardians" at checkpoints everywhere.

12. Maybe we should be asking all law enforcement agencies

to petition Congress to ban all future manufacturing & sales of assault type weapons.
If there was a clear major majority of them in favor, be hard for Rs to vote against it.

18. Gun regulations

Police forces usually support gun regulations. Gun regulations and bans should be the focus.

19. Assault rifles.

What part of the word "assault" do they not understand? Not "defense rifle," not "hunting rifle," not "biathlon rifle," not "target rifle," not anything else. "Assault." The design is to ASSAULT HUMAN BEINGS.

21. But no.

"Assault Rifle" is used to distinguish the shorter-distancing, low-powered, automatic carbines from the "battle rifles" (bigger, more powerful, longer distances). (for example, m-16 family vs m-14)

The term "assault weapon" is used because it confuses the general public into thinking "assault rifle", which are not the same things regardless of any artificial definition of "assault weapon" being used.

Gun that holds and shoots lots of rounds real fast - ban those.

25. To be fair

Cops are afraid of (nonwhite) people with toy guns. Cell phones. Candy Bars. Hoodies. Cigarettes. Or even just sitting in their own apartments after work.

Scaring cops is not exactly difficult

31. It's gonna get worse, too.

The US Army has contracted for a new rifle (from Sig-Sauer, a sign of the times). It is specifically designed to have longer range than the Armalites, and to have a round capable of defeating present body armor. And yes, children, Sig-Sauer has already begun producing it for the civilian market.

All that body armor the police have invested in just became obsolete.

34. Ask American voters for a ban. Settle for licensing, registration, and insurance

The latter is probably better anyway considering human nature and our current predicament.
