shooting in america

OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD!!!

We just have our first school shooting in Mexico!!!!!
Weirdly enough I think it’s was on a private American own elementary or secondary school
Everything was caught on the security cameras!!!! The video is absolutely fuck up!!!!! We are all in shock, even though there’s a ton of violence and crimes in Mexico we’ve never experienced something like this, seeing a young boy shooting at his classmates in cold blood it shocked me to the very core
Please pray for the victims who are in critical condition right now. UPDATE: the shooter was a 15 year old boy and some reports say he was suffering from depression, he was pronounced brain dead so his family decided to donate his organs. The 3 victims who got shot in the head (the teacher, a boy and a girl) are still in critical condition please keep them and their families in your prayers

Avengers: Infinity War May Have Begun Filming While No One Was Looking
It’s been long believed that Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” would begin filming sometime before the end of year — possibly even as early as this month — a timeline seemingly supported by the photo of Josh Brolin’s “rehearsal” released in September by directors Joe and Anthony Russo.

But is it possible that cameras are already rolling on the ensemble film, and no one has realized it?

Atlanta Filming, the Twitter account of a photographer who’s captured images of several Marvel Studios productions, asserts that is indeed the case. In fact, he says, “Avengers: Infinity War” already has been filming for two weeks.

Of course he doesn’t specify which actors are filming, or whether they’re on location or at Pinewood Atlanta Studios, where “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Ant-Man,” “Captain America: Civil War” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming” were shot. Presumably that’s also where reshoots of the “Guardians of the Galaxy” sequel are taking place.

Opening May 4, 2018, “Avengers: Infinity War” features a sprawling ensemble cast that’s so far confirmed to include Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Pratt, Jeremy Renner, Benedict Cumberbatch and Brie Larson, among others.

No offense (JK, full offense) but I’m officially done with people arguing that we don’t need gun laws. We need fucking gun laws. How many mass shootings have to happen before people stop and think “huh, what if we didn’t make assault weapons available to the public?” 

There have already been 6 mass shootings in America in 2017. 6. It’s January 6th. That’s appalling and unacceptable. We need gun legislation.

And I don’t want to hear any second amendment bullshit either. The second amendment was developed when people were using fucking muskets. Can you imagine a mass shooting with a musket? Me neither. The founding fathers couldn’t even imagine machine guns and assault weapons in their craziest fever dreams, they didn’t have them in mind when they wrote the amendment. 

I’m just tired of people saying gun legislation in unconstitutional or unnecessary

Could you just imagine if 80% of America’s favorite white fuckboys on TV got killed off by stray bullets ??

Whatever happens...

It’ll be okay. No matter how today and tomorrow goes, it’ll all be okay. I know every single one of you has that strength inside of you that will not be smothered because of the bad things that may come. I know you’re scared; I am, too.

I’m terrified. The fate of our country, the fate of the communities that face oppression and heartbreak each and every day, will be announced tomorrow. Even if it comes out bad, I know we can handle it. We’re strong. We’ve dealt with people like him every single day of our lives.

I know everyone is scared of what might happen, but we can’t let that fear bring us down. I know must of us are young, but that doesn’t mean we don’t matter.

I know most of the world has pretty much forgotten all of what has happened to the LGBT+ community in the last few years–both good and bad–but we won’t. I know a lot of my friends are terrified and waiting for that moment that their lives will change.

If you are a person of color and/or a member of the LGBT+ community, I know you’re more than likely as scared as I am.

My girlfriend and I are already trying to figure out what we’re going to do if he becomes president. And I know that straight, white people don’t understand. My counselor said that the concerns of the LGBT+ community and the POC community are minor and shouldn’t be worried about.

That’s easy for her to say. If he wins, it won’t affect her like it will thousands of other people.

And she’s not the only one that thinks this way. It’s easy for people who’ve never gone through that to see our rights and concerns as minor. They worry more about if their guns are going to be taken away; they care more about themselves. I should know. I’m surrounded by these people every day. They talk about how a woman shouldn’t be empowered because it’ll give them the wrong ideas. They think they can get away with saying something homophobic just because they’re related to me. And I know Thanksgiving will be Hell to go through no matter the decision made.

People were more worried about the fact that the shooter at the Pulse nightclub was potentially a terrorist. They didn’t care that 49 LGBT+ and POC were killed in a place that was supposed to keep them safe from those dangers.

Whatever happens tomorrow, I want all of you to know that you’re not alone. Even if the whole world is against you because of your skin color and/or your sexuality, know that there are people that still love and care about you.

I know we’re all waiting until we hear who will have control over our country for four years. I’m trying not to think about it, but I’m so scared.

It’s alright to be scared, even if others tell you it’s not that bad. If you need someone to vent to about this, I’m here. I will always be here for you. No matter the outcome, I know we can get through this.

I love you all so much.
