As has been pointed out here….
America HAS a Gun Culture….
It seems every mass shooting just puts more guns in Americans’s hands with out rules….
Media focus on the shootings actually embolden’s certain lawmakers to make guns more available….
More half the states allow carrying without a permit….
The list continues to grow….
Florida’s Republican-controlled Legislature passed a bill Thursday allowing individuals to carry concealed loaded weapons anywhere without a permit.
The bill now goes to Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has repeatedly indicated he will sign it.
The measure scraps the existing requirements for concealed weapons permits, including an extra layer of background checks, licensing and firearms training.
Under the bill — dubbed “constitutional carry” by conservatives and gun rights activists and “permitless carry” by gun safety activists, supporters of gun restrictions and neutral groups — people would need to have on them only a valid ID while carrying a concealed weapon. Failure to do so carries a $25 fine.
The Florida Senate’s passage of the bill comes just three days after a shooter opened fire inside a Nashville school killing six people — including three 9-year-old children — an attack DeSantis has not yet spoken about publicly. DeSantis, in fact, is scheduled to visit an Atlanta-area gun store Thursday — a visit Democrats in Georgia have implored him to reschedule….
If the bill does become law, Florida — the site of the 2016 mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando and the 2018 mass shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland — will become the 26th state to allow individuals to carry concealed loaded guns anywhere without permits, a growing trend that has alarmed gun safety groups.

Oh so the media shouldn’t report these shootings because Republicans will then adopt more pro gun legislation.
Yeah that makes sense.
They WILL report them as it IS their job…..
The attention, as I point out?
Will result in MORE gun restrictions being dropped….
Reality my friend…..
Just pointing to cause and effect…..
26 states and counting moving away from retictions led by the Supreme’s…
American Gun Culture is ALIVE and Well….
Mass shootings attention actually HELP’s it in a perverse way …

No “reality” is that the press reporting the news has Nothing to do with Republican extremism which you seem oddly obsessed over.
The REALITY IS the gun supporters DO seem to push back against attempts to curb gun possession….
