    wow!! so treacherous!




    Is it time? For all Americans to turn in our pistolas?

    Is this more proof that the imperfect, human, should not be allowed to handle a firearm??

    people go postal, it's why we have the term, Muslims, Christians, Atheist, anyone can snap.. but no, we should not ban guns... Assault Riffles should be hard to get like machine guns maybe, but Americans have the right to own pistols

    Life in US is very stressful, people are suffering big time, that is why so many cases of mass shootings.

    Assault rifles are machine guns. Semi-automatic and full-auto (select fire) are requirements of an assault rifle.

    Firearms such as the AR-15 are not assault rifles. Nor are they anymore dangerous or unusual than any other firearm currently available on the private market in the united states. Nor are they even used in the majority of mass shootings in the united states.

    If firearms were not available, the human race would simply find and invent new and ever-more creative ways to go about killing one another. There would be an increase in the use of improvised explosive devices, and countless other implements designed for the express purpose of killing others.

    What many either do not understand, or simply do not want to admit, is that the human race is obsessed with killing itself through any means necessary and available. It as a species simply does not wish to live, rather it wishes to die. Every modern advancement in technology achieved by the human race, has ultimately been with the end goal of killing off other members of its own species.

    The human race is not worth saving. It should instead be left alone to its own devices, until it ultimately succeeds in driving itself into total extinction.

    It really is amazing. This has become so common in the USA that you "all" seem so 'ho hum' about it. "Who cares...only 12 killed some others maimed. That's the price I am happy that OTHERS pay so I can have my gun." Jayzuz. Get a grip USA.

    I could remember from the Intercepts
    Intercepted Podcast: White Supremacy and the Church of the Second Amendment

    that it is not a case of equal ownership among the demography of the US. Some groups are far more likely to own guns than others so I did a search and found Pew Research from 2014 and indeed this was the case.

    People with children in the house are just as likely to own guns as those without.

    White people are twice as likely to own guns as blacks (41% to 19%). This is despite blacks being twice as likely to be the victims of gun homicide. Hispanics are less likely to be victims of homicide than blacks and also half as likely to have a gun at home as whites (20%)

    The survey challenged the long held view that gun ownership was more common in the south.
    Rural residents and older people are more likely to have a gun at home.

    Republicans are twice as likely as Democrats to have a gun at home. Political Independents are also twice as likely as Democrats to have a gun at home.

    They also found psychological differences to the way gun owners (with the gun kept in the home) perceived themselves than those without.

    https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-ta...aphics-and-politics-of-gun-owning-households/

    Basically the idea which I had previously got from the linked article/podcast at the Intercept would appear to be true. White Republicans and white Independents appear to be twice as likely as anyone else to have a gun in the home. It appears from other statistics that now about 42-44% of American households have a gun.There has possibly been a slight rise in people keeping a gun in the home since then.

    Sorry people have yet again lost their lives and families and friends their loved ones due to yet another mass shooting in the US.

    ..don't be sorry Alexa they don't mind...Its nothing really, I mean someone falls and gets a booboo at the ice rink or a few teeth mangled by a baseball in the gob or 11 shot dead.. meh'... its all just part of the sports and leisure industry! I mean if they thought it was an issue they'd do something about it...I imagine they have disclaimers on their products, you know, "shooting people can be dangerous" that sort of thing but what more can you do. No don't be sorry its all under control.

    Any center fire rifle is going to be more deadly than a pistol.

    I know this has holes in it...but from another Forum....
    I would have said that the NRA (et al) are dancing on the blood of gun victims to tell the USA that it needs more guns so that people stay safe and while they are doing do, more and more people are being slaughtered.....it seems on a weekly basis. And America is just so blasé about it!!! Bizarre, inhumane and illogical.

    It matters to him to bring it up in the first place. Facts matter. Bleeding heart rhetoric does not change facts. I guess it doesn't really matter to Aussies since they have no choice, if they decide to kill someone they will have to use a long gun.

    Not even a long gun. To get one of those you have to jump through many hoops. Tell me....why ....why....why do you value your ownership of a gun far more than human life? One day (and I truly hope this never happens) when some dick with a gun kills your Family you might see how bent and twisted your values were.

    My gun will be used to protect my family. If I had no gun, it would be a lot easier for some thug to overpower me and do as he wishes. Does your military value guns more than human life?

    Bully for you. I'll bet those people killled and maimed today also had guns somewhere. They are dead and maimed. Yay says you. "Better they die than me have to lose my guns." "You" are the problem. The solution is....I want everyone gun in the USA out of the hands of the civilian population. It works.

    You handle the violence in your country in your way and we'll handle violence our way and it won't affect you in the slightest. And you have no say about who owns a gun in the US, keep it that way.
