We live in a violent society where opposing views are met with violence or threats of violence. It's getting worse rather than better.

Over half the counties in our country had no murders at all. Something like 50% of all the murders are in about 2% of the counties. Even in Chicago the vast majority of neighborhoods have about zero murders and very low crime. But just a few neighborhoods drag the whole city down the tubes.

So most of our country's exposure to the violence you speak of is limited to what it sees on the news.

"Over half the counties in our country had no murders at all."

Sparsely populated areas logically have low crime rates.

"Something like..."

Something like 92% of made up stats starts with those words.

The fact remains that politically motivated violence is on the rise. I don't know what how many people are exposed to it has to do with it other than to distract.

A shooter opened fire at a GOP baseball practice.

On June 14, 2017, a gunman walked onto a baseball field at Eugene Simpson Park in Alexandria, Virginia, opening fire on politicians and wounding House GOP Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana and four others.

The representatives had been practicing for the annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity. James Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old man, asked a passing congressman—South Carolina’s Jeff Duncan—whether Republicans or Democrats were on the field practicing. Once he received confirmation that the Republican representatives were the ones playing ball, Hodgkinson fired off 60 rounds into the unsuspecting elected officials.

That’s what he said . Did they verify his story ? He may be the new Hillary Clinton.

Parkland Survivor David Hogg Says He’s Faced 7 Assassination Attempts This Past Year

After the 2017 shooting massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, then-17-year-old survivor David Hogg and several of his young classmates forced the nation to sit up and have a tough — and different — conversation about gun violence. The teens marched for their lives, and challenged seasoned gun lobbyists and lawmakers on live television. They led protests and boycotts, and inspired young people across the country to register and vote for candidates who support more stringent gun control.

On Tuesday, Hogg, now 19, shared with The Washington Post the high cost that’s come with the teens’ activism. His and his family’s safety have been put at risk, he said. In the past year alone, “there have been seven assassination attempts” on his life, Hogg said.

“I realize that it’s horrible that I have to live through this, and it is traumatizing. But you eventually become desensitized to it. Like, oh, your house got ‘swatted.’ You got a call from the police saying someone said that everyone in your family had been killed and that you are being held hostage for $100,000 ... That becomes part of daily life,” Hogg said, referring to a troubling incident last year when police armed with assault rifles barged into his family home after receiving a prank call alleging the family had been taken hostage by a gunman.

Hogg and his family were fortunately not home at the time, but as the Los Angeles Times noted following the incident, the swatting attempt could’ve proven deadly.

It was not so much a childish prank as attempted manslaughter, the Times said, noting that a swatting victim ― 28-year-old father-of-two Andrew Finch ― had died at the hands of California police a few months prior.

Despite the threats to his life, Hogg ― who has also endured harassment by far-right figures and conspiracy theorists ― said he’s “not going to stop” his activism.

“I want to go to school and, for lack of a better word, weaponize my knowledge and learn as much as possible to end violence,” Hogg, who is expected to attend Harvard in the fall, told the Post.

“I also realize, if they kill me, that’s probably the stupidest thing they could do to try to end the movement,” Hogg said of those wanting to do him harm. “Because that would make it even more successful in the end. Because it would invigorate us and create xxxxxxx change.”
I think we have board members who would celebrate if David were assassinated! And they would mourn that they didn't get to kill him themselves. After all, killing a young man his age with his assertiveness and guts to try to make positive changes is no different than a soldier sent to a stupid war and getting killed. They are replaceable, right?
Wrong.
Bullscheiss.
So you think the Iraq war soldiers KIA is are replaceable ? I couldn’t disagree more.
Right. How about black hawk down in Somalia?

Vietnam?

We cut and ran from both of those Democrat ran wars.

Are you really this dumb, Cletus?

"Pittsburgh synagogue gunman said he wanted all Jews to die, criminal complaint says

For weeks before the shooting, Bowers targeted Jews in frequent posts on Gab, a social media platform that bills itself as "the free speech social network." He used anti-Semitic slurs, complained that President Donald Trump was surrounded by too many Jewish people and blamed Jews for helping migrant caravans in Central America."
