Here’s a tweet from Cam Edwards, editor of Twitchy sister-site Bearing Arms, that we’d put aside a couple of weeks ago but really comes in handy today. In short, teachers and students were writing out wills in case they were killed in a school shooting.
Teachers, and even some students, have written out wills in case they're killed in a school shooting. A 16-year-old says she wants to be cremated "because the idea of being buried freaks me out." https://t.co/zjuMdHZ4m6

Teen Vogue, of course.
Every one of these teachers and students is more likely to be struck by lightning than to be shot and killed in an active assailant shooting.
I think there's real mental health harm caused by this sensationalistic media coverage. https://t.co/kLuzvAvs28

We’d agree. Check out the level of paranoia exhibited by liberal activist Alyssa Milano, who we’re sure hasn’t missed any auditions or shoots because of her fear of being shot on the way.
Can’t go to school.
Can’t go to your place of worship.
Can’t go to a concert.
Can’t walk down the street.
Can’t go to a festival.
Can’t go shopping.
Guns are destroying America.

Funny … she went from her home all the way to the Texas/Mexico border to protest migrant living conditions and didn’t get shot.
Can’t live in fear. I go to all those places alone and or with my family. I encourage all to do the same and hope they do. We can not control the actions of crazy and shouldn’t allow crazy to control our actions.

I can do all those things. You're nuts.

I went to a festival on Saturday. 🤷🏻♂️

I go to all of those, and I am not afraid to go to more.

Hmm…that’s odd. I’ve been to 5 of the places you listed in past couple weeks🤷🏻♂️

Yes, you can.
No, they’re not.

I go to school.
I go to my church.
I go to concerts.
I walk down the streets.
I go to festivals.
I go shopping.
HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of our fellow Americans do too. A few psychopathic nut jobs that do horrible things can't destroy out great nation. Leave that to socialism.

Go. That chance that any given venue is attacked is so close to zero that the risk should never even cross your mind. That fact does not imply that we shouldn't do more about it, but U R almost certainly safe.

People like you with no common sense are what’s destroying the country, stclairtrashly.

Actually according to the CDC Guns are actually saving more lives then losing them on a yearly bases just saying
— Savage Saiyan Fitness 🐉🐉 (@fitness_saiyan) September 2, 2019
Yeah, we like to keep that CDC study quiet, OK?
This list also applies to cars. @washingtonpost has 1207 people dying in public mass shootings since 1966. That's about 23 people per year if you round up. NHTSA says roughly 35,000 people die in car accidents every year. So, you are 1,521x more likely to die in a car accident.

Guns don’t do a thing until someone pics it up. You want a knife and truck ban, too? What about abortion ban? You that are for abortion have no moral high ground to speak on gun control🤦🏻♀️.

I know girl. I hate it when my gun gets up and goes out to shopping centers and concerts. Drives me crazy when it pulls its own trigger #guns

An inanimate object can’t do anything to destroy anything Alyssa. It’s bad people who would use whatever is available to hurt people, whether a gun, truck, explosives, poison, machete, knife, baseball bat, or whatever. The object used is not the cause, it’s the person using it.

You’re totally right! Why just the other day I saw a car load of pistols and rifles driving around… I knew they were up to no good.

Guns aren’t destroying America! Complete disregard 4 life is what’s destroying America! God being thrown out of every institution is destroying America! Pride, evil & principalities of darkness are destroying America! We throw God out of everything & then wonder what’s going on?

If Milano had a new movie coming out, we’d be afraid to go out and see it for fear of getting shot. Or not getting shot and having to watch the movie.
Who wants to tell Alyssa Milano that her rock-solid argument for gun control isn't as rock-solid as she thinks it is? [pic] https://t.co/epouJPfSIG
