Police say ‘motive unknown’ but hey this one’s an American classic: They didn’t invite him.

Do you know how many mass shootings are cuz bouncers wouldn’t let a guy in a club, frat bros threw someone out of a beerfest, or celebrants barred the door at a birthday party? Today’s atrocity was probably the last one on the list: Li’l Chase Garvey, just 20 years old and already boasting an impressive sex offender record, blasted into a local gathering and shot everyone in sight. The house was a McMansion, Garvey drove a Lexus, and I’m guessing the tyke shouldered an expensive assault weapon. Rich country.


Update: Rap sheet for violent crimes and not yet 21. Took multiple selfies proudly holding immense guns. A really, really dangerous person; but Kentucky!! You’ve got no gun control in your state. Own it, babe.

Kentucky’s gun laws are among the worst in the country, and the state has one of the higher rates of gun violence in the nation. Kentucky has none of the foundational policies in place—after legislators repealed its concealed carry permitting requirement in 2019.

The entire state apparatus is set up to make the world safe for Chase Garvey. Own it.

    This is American culture. It will not improve.

  2. Margaret Soltan Says:

    Well, I certainly think it will get worse before it gets better.

  3. Dmitry Says:

    I do not know what ‘worse’ means when multiple mass-murders of school children has produced no meaningful action. Any moves in that direction are swiftly reversed by the courts.

  4. Margaret Soltan Says:

    You’re right, of course. But I’m hoping that as the consequences of moral degeneracy about guns mount, laws will change.

    FWIW, the shooter’s ex-girlfriend was an attendee at the party. No word on whether she was the 13-year-old he was convicted of raping and sodomizing, or possibly the 13-year-old with whom he was caught doing donuts while on probation for the earlier charges. (I’ve been following the story because I grew up there. The shooting took place about 2-3 miles from my old home, where my folks were killed 15 years ago.)

    This guy had no business being on the streets, much less around firearms. (In fact, as a felon, it was illegal for him to even possess firearms. Of course, that didn’t stop my brother, either.)

  6. Margaret Soltan Says:

    Mondo: When you have hundreds of millions of guns, and a culture like the American South where they’re not just normalized, but valorized, there’s virtually no way to defend yourself against violent psychotics. And given ever more lethal weaponry, mass shooting also becomes normalized.
