Trump chickened out of testifying at the E. Jean Carroll trial, as expected.
This is life in St. Louis over the weekend:
Five people were shot to death and a number other people were wounded. I think they’re still counting, actually. It’s unlikely any of this will count as a “mass shooting” because these were several separate incidents. This is what happens with no gun control. Missouri laws don’t call for permits or licenses of any sort. People can buy any firearm they want and carry it nearly everywhere they want. It’s arguably a bigger hassle to get a new cell phone than an assault weapon here. This is the world the NRA wants us to live in.

Oooh…where in New York are you moving to ? Hope it’s my neighborhood 🙂

We are not.

"Incidences of mass shootings occur, resulting most often in casualties. Although tourists are rarely involved, there is a risk of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Familiarize yourself on how to respond to an active shooter situation."
is not really reassuring.
I suppose "normal precautions " vary by how well one knows the country and we are next door.
Interestingly enough France is considered dangerous
France travel advice: Exercise a high degree of caution
Having visited both countries I feel a lot safer in France.
You get a bit of terrorism here and there in France but you do not expect to get shot in a dispute over a parking space.
Off topic, but sometimes we need a little humor.

That is funny, but depending on the Judge it might not be that far fetched? Stump says he's going to Pardon all these assholes anyway!
I threw in a few Ruble's via paypal, hopefully you received it, glad to help!

We had a similar weekend in Indianapolis.
5 homicides including 2 teenagers.
And more than 90 shots fired in the hippest part of town just after midnight. Semiautomatic weapons. Houses shot. Windows shattered. Cars shot. Only one injury though.
We are not so bad but we get gun violence too. This was a bad one.
