    I live in the Chicago suburbs and was on my way to my suburban 4th of July parade right when happened with my 6 year old son. Yesterday was a depressing day but that story is one that just hits too close to home.

    September 2019someone called the police on the highland park shooter because he had a bunch of knives and was threatening someone with them. Highland Park PD took the knives, and notified the state police. He had no FOID card or application so the state police didn’t do anything. He then applied for and got a FOID card and bought guns. State Police fucked up.

    That destroyed me as a dad of a three year old. I get nervous when my son walks by himself into a different room let alone being abandoned for his entire fucking life.

    fundraiser for a little boy (2 yrs old) whose parents were both killed at the Highland Park shooting.

    unbelievably sad. our reality here is bleak

    In the aftermath of the Highland Park, IL shootings on July 4, the North Shore community rallied to help a boy who we knew nothing about. We took him to safety under tragic circumstances, came together to locate his grandparents, and prayed for the safety of his family.

    Sadly, I need to share his name…Aiden McCarthy. And he needs more of our help. His parents Irina & Kevin were killed during the July 4 shooting. At two years old, Aiden is left in the unthinkable position; to grow up without his parents.

    Aiden will be cared for by his loving family and he will have a long road ahead to heal, find stability, and ultimately navigate life as an orphan. He is surrounded by a community of friends and extended family that will embrace him with love, and any means available to ensure he has everything he needs as he grows.

    On behalf of his family, and with their permission, I am establishing this fundraiser to support him and the caregivers who will be tasked with raising, caring for, and supporting Aiden as he and his support system embark on this unexpected journey.

    Thank you for your generosity, kindness and support.

    Heard earlier on the news that he blended into the mass of people running from the scene, got to his moms house, and took her car all the way to Madison, WI. Then he came right back to the scene of the crime and was flagged.

    The chans and kuns of the internet being an echo chamber of misogyny, racism, and conspiracy theories has created a monster that is not going to get better any time soon. It's a major fucking crisis, and more people should be raising alarms about it.

    Please let this be on repeat on ESPN instead of their Kevin Durant speculations - it's nuanced and a succinct statement from an athlete so maybe a few people will actually listen to it.

    I don't remember her name but there was a standup comic opener we saw a few weeks back that had a bit about having to prove you've recently been laid before purchasing a gun.

    Obviously impossible but that would have prevented a few of these.

    Gut wrenching. These parents probably didn’t even want to go to the parade, but thought it would be cool for little Aiden to see the fire trucks and get him out doors. Just doing their job as parents and this fucking amazing country let them down.

    This is a country where it isnt safe to take a three year old to see fire trucks without the risk of them becoming parent less and the response is to make guns easier to get and fight any chance at legislation.

    Why we haven’t burned this bitch to a crisp is beyond me.

    These ghouls have watched as classrooms of Aidens get slaughtered, this tragedy won’t move them one inch. I know it often seems futile, but we can’t give up.

    Nah, they’re answer is to arm Aiden. I love that you still have fight in you, but I just don’t. When this country has essentially fucked over people like me for 400 years, you learn to accept that destruction is the point.

    Cops were called to his house twice in 2019 when he threatened to kill himself and all of his family and took 16 knives and swords from him. His father later sponsored him for his card to get a gun and he was able to buy them all legally because they didn’t deem him a threat.

    Knives, brass knuckles, nunchucks (I’m sure); all harder to get and more deadly, according to America. We just need more guns. Toddlers with guns.

    This hits pretty close to home, considering I’m from, and my daughter currently lives in, a fairly affluent suburb known for having a fairly high Jewish population and a massive 4th of July parade. This easily could have been there.

    This is just the bleakest fucking timeline:

    -people killing others at random with weapons of war every day
    -no belief that law enforcement will step in if it happens
    -no chance our elected officials do a goddamn thing about it

    I know Tucker went to some homoerotic Britishesque prep school which would explain why he might assume that guidance counselors at public schools can prescribe medication.
