I remember seeing Adam Best’s tweet when it went viral:

Boulder: AR-15

Tree of Life Synagogue: AR-15

Sometimes they are “variations” on that exact model by different manufacturers, but they are assault rifles all the same (fact check). Add Uvalde to the list, and I’m sure many, many more.

Now it’s Bend’s turn. Right down the road. Fucking great. Hey, I don’t have all the answers, but, to me, it doesn’t seem to take a lot of brain power to identify “easy to acquire assault rifle” as a major problem. I made the mistake of following the local Reddit and Facebook threads about this, and aside from all the thoughts and prayers bullshit, the amount of “obviously we need more guns” comments astound me. While everyone agrees the shootings are horrible, the solutions people have in their heads are often 180-degrees different from each other. I think we should give fewer guns a whirl though, me.
