Thread: Mass shootings

  1. Re: Mass shootings

    [QUOTE=wickedsolo;2081932]Couple of things....

    1) The way the US defines "Mass Shootings" is an inaccurate definition. A "Mass Shooting" should be defined as a violent act involving firearms where more than X-number of people are injured/killed/impacted. I don't know what that threshold number should be for the definition, but certainly more than 1 and I would even argue probably more than 5.

    Both the FBI and Congress define "mass shooting". It must be a single incident, involve a firearm, and leave 3 people dead, it must be in a public place. The media does appear to label any incident involving multiple victims a mass shooting regardless of the number of victims who has actually died. A great example of this is the recent shooting of 3 people by a 12 year old girl at her school a few days ago, none of which died thankfully.

    I also submit to you that the media doesnt report stabbings as mass shootings simply because the victims were not shot. As I said , the term mass shooting would indicate the use of a firearm. As for the fact a number of people may die as a result of shootings in any given city on any given night...they may not qualify as a mass shooting unless an individual incident involves multiple shootings/deaths by gunfire. If multiple people are killed by gunfire in a single incident i would bet it makes news in any city regardless of why the shooting took place.

    What we need, are less degenerate, immoral, entitled scummy people who don't care about the lives of their neighbors... or in fact anything but themselves.

    We create these people, by leading them to believe from very early in life that they are entitled to live at the expense of others. These are the fruits of the entitlement state.

    The number of guns, knives, sticks, chains, lead pipes, and razors in the world, will not change this equation.

    3 people killed and 16 injured this weekend in Philly. Donít hear about that though because itís Philly, right?

    4 people in critical condition after a ďmass stabbingĒ in New Zealand. Guess they should take a page and ban knives too like they did in London.

    Dude in NYC opens fire on a bunch of people in Times Square, but that was a Black Guy and doesnít fit the mediaís narrative for Gun control.

    Re: Mass shootings

    This past week you saw armed BLM protestors stopping traffic and they even tackled/disarmed a guy that drew his weapon saying he would shoot the next person that pointed a gun at him. They then kicked/beat him putting him in the hospital with a collapsed lung.

    When you see these leftist/marxist "protestors" with guns harassing, instigating trouble and then beating people at gun point while the police do nothing... that's the type of thing to me that will get guns banned.

    How, by the way, is that not considered terrorism? It's terrorism.

    Make no mistake about it - the war on police officers has emboldened these mentally ill and violent people.

    We are headed to a very bad place with nothing currently stopping it.

    Is it sad that Florida is looking like the most sane state right now?
