Sorry Neil - even your friends in the progressive bubble, you know the tolerant ones, can't tolerate rationale discussion.

Just like in Chicago this year there have been over 1,500 shootings - they don't give a shit about that, goes unchallenged and under reported.  And for God's sake, don't bring up the number of murders in Baltimore.

Gun-free slaughter zones are never a good idea.

Many other people mentioned that the other causes he listed were being researched or had reliable preventative measures that could be taken such as vaccines, while gun violence remains an unsolved issue.

Unresolved indeed - however research does continue.

Creating more laws when current laws are not enforced is stoooopid.  Looking for causal action and gaps in laws is fine and when found, address them.

Current laws allows the ownership of military type weapons.  That's a flaw that should be corrected.

Imagine how many Wall-Mart's this punk-ass, sub-human, feral, savage, coward thug passed during his 10 hour drive to El Paso to murder innocent people.

Another opinion ... the shooter was able to buy 6,000 rounds of ammo online, no questions asked, no red flags going up.  That's another flaw.

WHAT?!  You believe it should raise a flag if you purchase 6,000 rounds of ammunition???  

ARE YOU SERIOUS?  Obviously you've never purchased ammunition on line.  Best deals are in bulk.

Wonder how many flags should be raised on my part?

That's like saying "Holy shit" this guy just bought 5 bags of ammonium nitrate!!!

What "questions" should be asked of anyone purchasing 6,000 rounds of ammo online Vince?  And these "red flags" you refer to going up - what does that entail?

So two separate shootings this weekend, one in El Paso and one in Dayton and the lyin progressive fake news media machines are focusing ONLY ON THE WHITE SUPREMACIST piece of shit not the Dayton shooter.  

Can you say bias - I knew you could.

Colored man presidential candidate puts the shootings directly on Trump!  More "elect me" fodder for the dumb masses.

It would just feed into your “community life score”.    They would take into account your online presence,  post to forums goggle searches, your health history, and medications, blood tests results....you’re uploading all that for your insurance discounts right?....credit score voter registration.

Back in CA when I was shooting weekly 6,000 rounds would have lasted me 12 weeks. I was shooting 24,000 rounds a year.

Mass shooters could be ruining it for good people with military type weapons who use a lot of ammo.

Tyson's post was rational. Too bad he left out that almost 25,000 children (ages 5 and under) die from starvation and drinking bad water every day. That should be the newspaper headline every day.

Right.  When I was shooting competitively in New Mexico I was throwing 1,200 - 2,000 rounds a week down range.  Most my spare time was spent reloading.

We know "good guys with guns" stopped him almost immediately, in a minute.

But the kind of gun he had already had enabled him to kill 9 people and wound 26 more in one minute.

How many could he have killed with a bomb, or a vehicle?  C'mon people!

Mass shooters wouldn't be the ones ruining it for good people with military type weapons who use a lot of ammo.  It will be the progressives with their knee-jerk irrational conclusions as to what will work KNOWING it won't.

330 million people + 330 million guns = a lot of gun deaths.

Stricter gun control is soft, coddling, and passive?:no:

Isn't it the reverse of that? Isn't it law and order?

In addition to being what the majority wants.

 

 

America’s Mass Shooting Epidemic Is the Result of Republican Minority Rule

A clear majority of Americans and Democrats support stricter gun control—the GOP has been blocking it for decades, and the results have been murderous.

"For all the talk of America’s obsession with guns and propensity for violence, only 30 percent of Americans actually own them, according to Pew Research. A solid majority—57 percent of Americans—support stricter gun laws, with 80 percent of Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents versus 28 percent of Republicans. Blue states, like California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, Hawaii, and New York, have passed stricter gun-control laws—and even though it’s relatively easy to purchase firearms and bring them across state lines, those states have lower rates of gun violence than those with lax standards, according to the Giffords Law Center.

I thought that's what this country is supposed to be all about, what the majority wants.

And that's why we vote?

 

"A solid majority—57 percent of Americans—support stricter gun laws."
