This thread can be moved to the butt now. I am just tired of all the shootings. It is "ridiculous" yes I used that word.

Here is a chart of the worst mass shootings in the western industrialized part of the world.


Yes guns do kill people. The U.S. has the most guns, which country do you think has the most mass shootings?

It's always hilarious to see an idiot blame a gun instead of a person.

Meanwhile..There were almost 40 gunshot victims in Chicago last month. Where is your outrage? Did you hear about the mass shooting in Chicago where 6 people were killed at a laundromat? I didn't think so. How can this stuff happen in a city where you can't have guns?

Looks like guess who is preaching in the wrong church.


Might of been better received with a less insensitive thread title.

The killer was obsessed with Columbine. He visited there. He said he wanted to shoot up a school.

Crazy ****ers and people with no regard for the law kill people. Guns don't. I wonder if the shotgun he used was black? Maybe we will hear a new term "assault shotgun" coined in the near future.

Why do these shootings keep happening in gun free zones. Don't the shooters know they can't take their guns there?

There are no gun free zones. Take Chicago, Chicago has tough restrictions on guns..... well, people just drive 30 miles to Evanston and buy their guns. It has to be a nation wide law.

Celebrating, supporting and being interested in violence is your duty as an American, citizen.

Do you? Texas isn't even in the top ten Per capita. DC is number 1. California has the highest total number of murders by firearms of any state and they have some of the harshest gun laws in the nation. Maybe the criminals just need to be told about the laws they are willing to break. Maybe they don't realize those actions are illegal and then they'll stop.

Last one: The top five states for gun ownership in the nation, Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota and West Virginia, are also at the bottom of the list for gun related accidents and deaths per capita, with half as many as states with draconian gun ownership laws like Connecticut, New York and Rhode Island.

I know what you mean those pesky criminals never pay attention to the law.

Maybe if we manufacture guns that stop firing after ten rounds and give a recorded sermon on brotherly love it would cut down on massacres

I like how liberals use the face rural states have so few people against them. Of course when you go % or how many per 100,000 it changes things.

It's like saying wow West Virginia has most % of people on welfare. Then you find out there are more people on welfare in one city in CA then the whole state of WV.

CA liberal as hell and we are the capital of violent street gangs. How come the liberal laws haven't worked here?

Benghazi, IRS, Fast and Furious, VA scandal, Freeing American Soldier from Afghanistan.... Yeah Republicans never do this.

Republicans are worse because IRS, Fast and Furious and Benghazi are basically made up scandals.
