This world is becoming more and more *censored*ed up, with people killing each other and supporting bombing other countries and whatnot. Jeez.

 

Did the Dayton shooter have any political motivation for shooting people or was he just *censored*ed up in general? 

 

That's the thing.  Murder is going down, so it is becoming less *censored*ed up.

 

Mass shootings are going up, so still *censored*ed up, if not more *censored*ed up. 

 

"About 40 white collar Walmart employees exited their office building in San Bruno, Calif. for a moment of silence Wednesday. They're protesting their employer's sale of guns, Abha Bhattarai and Greg Bensinger write."

https://www.washingt...test-gun-sales/

With better national planning, the walkout would send a better message than just one store. 

 

So not a mass shooting but the guy walked with Neighborhood Market in Springfield Missouri wearing full tactical gear A and a rifle and over a hundred rounds of ammunition all he did was take video we'll talk to people that leave

As shoppers were panicking and fleeing the store, Lucas said the man was taking video on his phone and making comments to people while pushing a shopping cart.

Lucas said the suspect then walked out of the store, where an off-duty firefighter held the suspect at gunpoint until police arrived moments later.

The suspect, a 20-year-old white man, was arrested, but Lucas said police are still working to determine his motives and whether he intended to shoot anyone.

Lucas said the man had more than 100 rounds of ammo.

His intent obviously was to cause chaos here, and he did that, Lucas said.

Source? 

 

I"m assuming his intent was probably to show that gun owners aren't bad, and that there's nothing wrong with guns? Bad way, but I think that was his message. But you know if he was a white man, the off-duty firefighter would have shot him right off the bat, if not the cops as soon as they got there. 

 

 

This logic is stupid.  Even if mass shootings are going up (we don't have a big enough sample size since mass shootings were only defined in 2013), overall murder is going down.  And school shootings are on the decline as well.

 

https://news.northea...esearcher-says/

 

at least one mass shooting per day on average is not helping your argument. Murder may thankfully be down, but mass shootings are still occurring, and often out of hate. 

 

 

EL PASO, Texas (AP) The man accused of carrying out last weekends deadly mass shooting at a Walmart in the Texas border city of El Paso confessed to officers while he was surrendering and later explained that he had been targeting Mexicans, authorities say.

Wow, who would've thought.

 

color me teal for shocked. 

 

That's what happens when people like Trump and Republican politicians continue to demonize immigrants and use them as symbol to get support by blaming them. Reminds me of what I read about what the Nazis did. 

 

 

Except in his manifesto, he said Trump had nothing to do with this and that he hated Republicans.

 

But keep drinking the Kool Aid.

Technically it doesn't look like a mass shooting more so a drug bust gone bad

Technically yeah. But they really don't have a set definition. I've heard more than four and some say more than 3. But it's an umbrella term to pump up numbers to make it seem like an epidemic in itself. Most are gang and drug related. Only a very small percentage are the ones that make headlines and bring us here. Like school shootings and things of that sort. Then it's the same old tired argument of guns bad vs people bad and no one does anything to fix anything or pinpoint major concerns that lead to these things. They just think the easy magic pill is to get rid of guns instead of focusing on the fact that most of these kids are on or coming off psychiatric drugs or that there were always things that never got reported correctly and led them to getting their hands on a weapon. Once again proving that background checks can't work if procedures aren't followed and if you think they'll be followed by introducing more, I've got a bridge to sell you. You'll just be creating new criminals out of innocent people.

Rarely anyone is arguing to remove guns, they just want stricter gun laws where those who don't follow the proper procedure will get in trouble, and there's no loophole. You can't create criminals out of innocent people if they're not doing anything bad, and hopefully it won't get to that (I don't support banning guns).

You're not understanding what I'm saying. If they create for an example, an AR ban, then alot of innocent people that already own them instantly become criminal. They'd give some time to turn it in and if you don't you are a criminal. That's not ok. You just created a criminal by passing an unjust law when that person didn't do anything wrong. He shouldn't be punished for it. Most won't turn their weapons in for that reason. You think that's ok? Because that's what they are pushing.

Philly shooter surrendered to police and was brought into custody.  He was an African-American male.  Can we put this whole "He was only brought in alive because he was white" narrative to bed?

Where they get guns from a neighboring state with lax gun control laws, but most people who haven't lived in Chicago will never bring that up and just talk about how much gun violence Chicago sees!

That's because those states with lax gun laws have lower murder rates than Illinois.

And yet, stats show that overall, states with lax gun laws see more gun violence than states with strict gun laws.

You'll have to define "Gun violence".  If it includes suicides, that is deceptive.
