Las Vegas Was Not The Worst Mass Killing In US History



It has been said that Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas in which Stephen Paddock open fire with assault weapons modified to fire automatically on a large crowd of concertgoers is the worst in American history. That’s not even close to being accurate.

Dammnit. I had to give dailykos a hit.

So leftists are trying to use wounded knee as a platform for gun control. Do they have any idea of the irony and how absolutely offencive this is to natives.

Jesus, these people are so clueless.

So you dont have to give that rag any money.

Quote:


The previous day, a detachment of the U.S. 7th Cavalry Regiment commanded by Major Samuel M. Whitside intercepted Spotted Elk's band of Miniconjou Lakota and 38 Hunkpapa Lakota near Porcupine Butte and escorted them 5 miles (8.0 km) westward to Wounded Knee Creek, where they made camp. The remainder of the 7th Cavalry Regiment, led by Colonel James W. Forsyth, arrived and surrounded the encampment. The regiment was supported by a battery of four Hotchkiss mountain guns.[6]

On the morning of December 29, the U.S. Cavalry troops went into the camp to disarm the Lakota. One version of events claims that during the process of disarming the Lakota, a deaf tribesman named Black Coyote was reluctant to give up his rifle, claiming he had paid a lot for it.[7] A scuffle over the rifle ensued, causing several Lakota to draw their weapons and open fire on the cavalry regiment. The situation quickly devolved as both sides began firing indiscriminately.

Wonder why they didn't include the Mountain Meadows Massacre as well?
Thanks from Sabcat

You're losing it Sab. The article didn't address gun control whatsoever. It's conclusion:
Many have argued this week and in the past that events like the Colfax Massacre and Wounded Knee are seen as separate because, within American history, the deaths of Native Americans and African Americans have not been seen the same as the deaths of white people — and that failing to specify "modern" history while talking about events like Las Vegas only underscores that idea by implying that earlier shootings don't count.
Jesus, you are so clueless.
Thanks from Hollywood, Gordy and Asimov

I'm loosing it? So if they are not using this government sanctioned mass murder as a spring board in the gun grabbing debate then why else post this article. To imply that it was in fact the CIA that shot all of those people?

The bodies were not even cold before the lizard queen jumped on her soapbox to interject her political opinion into the event? You know that "lady" that you guys keep accusing people of not letting go who constantly keeps herself in the spotlight.

Some people deserve to be massacred and especially those who shoot at you. You won't hear the bullet coming but hear the bee when flying past your ear. If lucky you only hear a buzz and then you hear the bang.
