Trump's "good guy with a gun", ladies and gentlemen.

As you say, there seems to be some sort of proviso involved. But even without the proviso, this is exactly the reason why that scenario doesn't work.

All that multiple people waving guns around does is confuse the situation when the police arrive on the scene.

And......another shooting, this time at a hospital in Chicago. The future as envisaged in Robocop is becoming a reality.

If only all doctors, nurses and hospital patients were armed at all times.

Mississippi GOP Senator Posted A Photo Of Herself Wearing Confederate Hat

Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) shared a photo of herself wearing a Confederate soldier’s hat and holding a rifle in a 2014 Facebook post that resurfaced on Tuesday.

“I enjoyed my tour of Beauvoir. The Jefferson Davis Home and Presidential Library located in Biloxi,” Hyde-Smith wrote in a caption. Davis was the Confederate president during the Civil War. His former estate now serves as a museum and library in his honor.

“This is a must see,” Hyde-Smith wrote. “Currently on display are artifacts connected to the daily life of the Confederate Soldier including weapons. Mississippi history at its best!”

Anti-vaccine community behind North Carolina chickenpox outbreak

A North Carolina school with a large anti-vaccine community is at the heart of the state's largest chickenpox outbreak in decades, officials say.

On Friday 36 students at Asheville Waldorf School were diagnosed with the disease, the Asheville Citizen-Times newspaper reported.

The school has one of the state's highest rates of religious exemption, allowing students to skip vaccination.

US health officials say vaccinating is far safer than getting chickenpox

Undercover cops brawl after mistaking each other for suspects in drugs bust

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/worl ... 61811.html

A mix up at a suspected drug house in Detroit led to police officers to fight one another, but they weren’t really aware that the fight was a cop-on-cop brawl.

Footage of the incident, caught on body cameras worn by the officers, shows the mixup and ensuing chaos. Officers from one precinct arrive at the home with a warrant, while officers from a different precinct and without a warrant also show up.

The tension eventually erupted between the two groups, even though one officer can clearly be heard saying they have a warrant. The group without a warrant apparently hadn’t bothered telling anyone what they were planning on getting up to.
Lucky no-one got shot really.

Cindy Hyde-Smith again. This explains a lot, but it doesn't do much for her "I'm not racist, but..." excuses:
GOP Senator Who Made 'Hanging' Remark Attended 'Segregated' Academy

Cindy Hyde-Smith, the Republican Mississippi senator who made comments condoning “public hangings,” attended a “segregated” school when she was younger, the Jackson Free Press reported Friday after unearthing a 1975 yearbook photo.

The school, Lawrence County Academy, was set up for white parents to avoid sending their children to school with black children, according to the Free Press. Many such schools, dubbed “segregation academies,” were created in the South following desegregation as inexpensive, private educational options.

Hyde-Smith is identified in a caption beneath the yearbook photograph, which shows a row of cheerleaders smiling as they lie on the ground, propped up on their elbows, as a girl dressed in what seems to be Civil War–era regalia stands in the center holding an apparent Confederate flag.

Lawrence County Academy was established in 1970, one year after the U.S. Supreme Court ordered Mississippi to desegregate its schools. For 15 years after desegregation became law of the land, Mississippi dragged its feet on integrating black and white students. 

A former student who provided the photo to the newspaper said she realized at the time that her parents sent her to Lawrence County Academy to avoid interactions with black students. Segregation was not openly acknowledged at the school, she said.

Hyde-Smith sent her daughter to a similar school, Brookhaven Academy, which is nearly all white despite being located in a majority-black town.
