Mass shootings affect a far larger number of people than just those that are actually injured and killed. It traumatizes everyone present. It traumatizes first responders who are involved. It traumati

Why bring it up?  You seemed to have a point to make.  

You're trying to play gotcha in the middle of a mass shooting event. #### maybe?  Zero self awareness. Incredible and disgusting. GTFO.

In related news, news outlets are feverishly trying to figure out what the race of the shooter is so they can decide how to report on it.

I’d be curious to know how many of these involve AR-15s or similar weapons. The vast majority, I’m guessing. 

If so, it would be a shift in guns used.   We've been over this a ton, tim - and they aren't used in the majority of mass shootings.

Fair enough. It seems like all the ones I read about are. But in any case they seem to have a more deadly result when they are used...

In the 25 deadliest mass shootings - the primary common denominator was a semi-automatic weapon - rifle or handgun.

1.  Male

2.  Semi - auto

Probably as close as we get as commonalities in mass shootings overall (when we include all of them - gang/drug shootings).

 I keep waiting for all of the "good guys with guns" to come forward and put an end to mass shootings.   

Seems like the "bad guys with guns" are winning.

 

I doubt FedEx allows guns on their property.  So any "good guy" with a gun would be following the rules and not have their gun with them.

I guess "good guy with guns" isn't the solution then.

If they were allowed to carry it could be a solution.  Gun free zones don't work.

It's also a real possibility it could make things worse.   If a decent of these are grievances about work, it would make firings and arguments at work a lot more interesting.

I just read 8 dead 5 injured. Based on that ratio I would expect this was an AR15, but obviously not an absolute. 

Typically the amount killed to injured will be a much higher ratio with an AR15. 

There are always exceptions to this, but I can post tons of examples of 7 or more people being shot with handguns where 0-1 people die. That list is pretty small for an AR15.

In very rare circumstances maybe but carrying a concealed gun is more for your own protection than defending other people. 

Expecting untrained civilians to take down a killer during a mass shooting is unrealistic.  Even police officers that are trained to respond to mass shootings find it very difficult.

Here is an amusing video for anyone that has 10 minutes to spare:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDkEFX52r9M

Any mass stabbings in our country today?  What about mass baseball bat killings?  Surely we had a couple mass bombings?  No?  Just another mass shooting?  Weird.

There was a mass stabbing a few days ago.  AFAIK there wasn't a mass shooting that day.  Weird.

Is this the Reseda incident?  If so then that's a nope, only three victims there.  Gotta have at least 4 to qualify as a mass killing in this day and age.  Also, subsequent reporting has indicated they were drowned.  Also, also, even if I spotted you this one, I think you know ### for tat, stabbed for shot is not a game you're going to win.

We did have a nice run though. Haven't had a mass shooting with more than 3 dead since April 7.  9 whole days.

It's just gross and it's one the most infuriating political arguments for me

People dead, families ruined.  They were just trying to do their job or go to school and yet 30% of the population and their love of an inanimate object  is wrecking so many families.

Meh.  It's a small price to pay to ensure we can effectively control the feral hog population.

8 people dead just trying to go to work and support their families.  Heartbreaking.  

But the most eye opening part of the article I read on yahoo this morning... “It was at least the third mass shooting this year in Indianapolis alone.”.  3rd? In only 4 months? WTF man!!

The image I have in my head is a room full of Stealthycats shooting at each other because they don’t realize which person with a gun is the mass shooter, probably also shooting a few extra bystanders.

Yeah but the real problem that needs addressing is voter fraud.

And then an uproar when cops shoot the good guy with a gun.  Because when they show up their focus is on a person with a gun.
