Mass Shootings directly proportional to Gun Ownership

Surprise!, Surprise!, Surprise!

The more guns a country has, the more mass shootings it has.

But it's worth it!

“In retrospect Sandy Hook marked the end of the US gun control debate,” Dan Hodges, a British journalist, wrote in a post on Twitter two years ago, referring to the 2012 attack that killed 20 young students at an elementary school in Connecticut. “Once America decided killing children was bearable, it was over.”

Apparently, as long as it's someone else's dead children it's fine. As long as Congress can send someone else's children to war, that's fine too.

This just in...car crashes are directly linked to car ownership.


Choking linked to eating.

Right, fuck those little kindergarten kids, right?
Just as likely most of them would have been killed in a car accident eventually anyway, right?

I find this hard to believe. For example: Mexico has very strict gun laws. A citizen cannot own larger tha a 22 caliber and there is only one place to legally buy a gun if you can get through the red tape.

Therefore one should expect virtually no gun violence in Mexico.

Mass shootings directly proportional to gun free zones.

All these shootings are having an affect on me. On the one hand something needs to be done about it. On the other, it has to be a uniquely American solution based on the psychology of he US. Talking about and demanding gun control isnt going to do shit! Sure, we can strictly control or prohibit them. But we all know, or should, how this turns out. Prohibition and the war on drugs ought to tell us how spectacular of a failure this will be. Where there is a demand someone will fill in the gap of supply. Or... Think of abortion. It was banned or strictly controlled, but women still sought it out anyways when their options were nonexistent.

Half of the country does not like to be told what to do by anyone and the other doesn't like to be told what to do by republicans.

Also, someone brought up the issue of the mentally unstable still be able to acquire guns easily, regardless of the controls in place. What about that? And the borderline cliche of criminals ( especially drug gangs) still getting guns whenever they want because they have the resources to do so because of the human appetite for mind altering substances. That will not change either.



Im at work. So my concentration ain't the best.
Thanks from Sabcat and Gordy

The dude got BCD from the Air Force but they did not report it to the FBI. I have more than one bone to pick with the esteemed and honored Air Force.
