There’s a counter-argument right now that instead of walking out to protest gun violence, the victims should have been “nicer to the shooters.”
Repeat: They should have been nice to keep them from murdering them. This is some Grade A enabling bullshit.
The victim is not the perpetrator. In a domestic violence case, do you blame the victim? Do you say he/she deserved it?
I’m all for being kind, but being kind to keep someone from murdering you is a sad commentary on our times. Worse, that people actually believe this instead of blaming the shooter is a vicious swerve.
