Do you think there is not a motive when a family is killed in their home?
Of course there is a motive, but mass shooting isn't the reason. Those types of crimes fall into a different category. They only count as mass shootings for the sake of anti-gun propaganda.
People want to make things more complicated then they are.
We live in a complicated world.
The motives of some families are even killed for 2,000-year-old-ignorance. Why not kill your entire family and send them to heaven? You would be doing them a favor. One woman killed her entire family because her religion taught her the end was near.
Unrelated to the subject and a cheap dig at religion for you. Why concentrate on religion?
You keep looking for an out that is not there. Stats are kept simple for a reason each mass murder has different than others in some aspect. Stats will just contain the facts relevant to those stats.
The only stats you are concerend with are the ones that allow you to restrict guns. You don't care about the stats that support DGU, defensive gun use, of which there are more DGU in the US than there are murders with guns. As I have pointed out for some time, that stats are never in the anti-gun propaganda favor.
Anybody on the right or the left who had said live on national television “the truth is not the truth” would have got the attention of the news media and Fox would still be reporting it every day if somebody on the left had said it. It was said on live national television.
I don't care about what is happening with that scam, keep to the subject at hand.
What we know about people is that they are different. To try and put everybody into a couple of boxes marked male and female won’t even work using the bodies as some have both sets of sexual organs.
You were just claiming that the world isn't complicated, and now you are trying to claim that a persons sex is complicated. You either have a penis or a vagina and a very small percentage are born with some combination of both or neither.
My mom worked in the nursery and she said most people have no idea how many babies are born with both sets of sexual organs. It something these ignorant preachers are never exposed too. This is a closely guarded secret by the individuals and families involved. One of those individuals worked for the fire department and when “she” was going to live as a man and have her breasts removed, she had to be protected from the “perverted firemen.”
Your mom was talking about birth defects, and those types of birth defects happen in a very small percentage of the population, less than 1% and even using 1% is generous. The number has grown because people have started to say they "feel" like they were born a different sex.
My sister has worked as a birthing nurse in AZ for over 20 years, I asked her how many babies she had seen born with both sexes and she said......
School shootings are just a subset of mass murders not a separate category.
Could have fooled me with how the anti-gun groups react when such an event takes place. The lies that are told and the facts that are held back to push propaganda says differently. School shooting with an AR-15 gets coverage for weeks, a school shooting with a handgun and s shotgun gets almost no coverage at all. How many shootings and deaths in Chicago or any other major city for that matter over a weekend.
Babies born with two heads might be a birth defect, but I don’t know that I would classify those born with both sets of sexual organs as a birth defect it does not threaten their survival and it is far more common than most people realize.
Talk about twisting logic. Humans are suppose to have a specific # of appendages to include 1 head, 2 arms, 2 legs and set of genitalia, since there are only 2 genitalia to pick from and 98%+ of the population is born with 1 or the other, anything outside of the norm is considered a birth defect.
1% or less of the population isn't common at all, it is rare.
If a gun fires 900 rounds a minute you know it is working. It is not hard to tell it is working if you pull the trigger and your AR-15 empties the clip it is working on other hand if you pull the trigger an nothing happens it is not working. It is not rocket science.
I take it you have never modified something before. If you had, you would know that sure, it can work when you test it but fails in the real world. You've claimed to work in the racing field before, never had a car start in the pit and then fail to start at the starting line? I've seen it plenty of times at many drag races at Bandimere Speedway in CO.
Bias? They made Trump man of the year and even many Republicans thought that was just wrong.
They made him Person of the year while noting that not every person of the year is picked because of good reasons. Don't play games.
No actually often a stranger comes into the house and uses the home owner’s gun to blow him away. His wife might have tipped the stranger off as to where to find the gun. They supply the murder with a gun he would not otherwise have.
Often? You are making statements you have no way of proving. Usually when a husband is killed in the house and the wife lives, it is either her or her lover who killed the husband, no strangers involved.
The story about the six-year-old should be in archive of Channel 3 in Huntington or the Herald Dispatch. It was recent a month or so ago.
So you continue to have others do your research for you?
The study is over 40 years old it was part of a sociology class when I was in college. The study put a gun or a knife on a table in front of the participants and contrasted it with participants who had no gun or knife in front of them. This clearly showed more arguments took place among participants with either the gun or the knife on the table in front of them. The couple with guns in the house may not be on the table but they would always be aware they are in the house. Sorry it is a real study.
Facts or proof? You also have a bad habit of "providing studies" that you don't actually provide any proof of. Welcome to the internet, if the study was done, a reference can be found on it. Stop being lazy and expecting me to research your "facts".
The Republicans passed a law that prohibited the CDC from gathering statistics that would reflect badly on guns. Since they are prohibited by law from showing how dangerous guns are. I wonder if their statistics are biased by the NRA. Guns are now being declared a national health hazard.
More lies. The law said that they couldn't do a study which would be used to influence policy on gun rights. They could study all the gun violence they wanted to and publish the findings, but since they couldn't use it to change the Constitution they didn't bother with the studies.
Here's what the Dickey Amendment actually says, see research is easy on the interent, you should try it sometime.
In United States politics, the Dickey Amendment is a provision first inserted as a rider into the 1996 federal government omnibus spending bill which mandated that "none of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) may be used to advocate or promote gun control.
They could have studied violence all they wanted to, just not use the studies to influence our Constitution.
2013 CDC Study on Guns, as approved and funded by the Obama Administration. There is a reason the MSM never talks about it and continues to push their propaganda:
Forty-eight hours reported on one of the incidents at a college-campuses where a fist fight started with some fraternity brothers hitting another college student. The student went to his car got his gun out of the glove compartment went back 90 feet and opened fire killing one and injuring two.
Did that student get charged or was a set free due to Stand Your Ground? From what you described, he should have had charges pressed.
I checked the story and sure enough, the kid has had charges pressed against him. It looks like justice will be served. Sound like this doesn't fit your narrative.
The incident where the man is pushed to ground is an excellent example of why some people shouldn’t have a gun.
I would disagree and so would the DA who declined to press charges.
If I shot everybody that shoved me down there would be a lot of dead people.
I don't know what kind of life you are living, but I've never been shoved around as an adult, never had to throw a punch since I was out of high school.
I saw the video of this shooting and if the old man had just stayed down it was over.
He never should have been shoved in the first place, not sure why you think pushing someone to the ground is acceptable behavior.
The other man made no attempt to attack him.
Then how did the man end up on the ground?
The older man was the aggressor. He had no business trying to enforce the law he was not a policeman.
Do you really want me to believe that asking someone who isn't handicap to move out of a handicap parking space is an act of aggression? Words? A request?
He could have called the police and reported it giving them the license number.
An older white man calling the cops on a younger black man... this old dude can't win with people like you.
We had one of those shooting simulators at work why it might prepare you for normal incident it would not help for going into a mass shooting in a crowded mall. A man with a gun in his hand is a man with a gun and you are not going to ask to see his conceal carry permit.
You have already proven you don't have the faintest clue what you are talking about when it comes to police response actions. Don't try and speak like you know what you are talking about.
