Your point would be stronger if it wasn't attached to a mass shooting.

Don't get all sad, ----- pants.

Our lack of regulation keeps us safe, too.

I mean, we haven't had a mass shooting in at least 20 minutes.

7 people die in the US every 180 minutes from gun violence.

But 7 dead from one mass shooting after 22 years is proof gun control does not work.

You're only looking at the negative aspects, balance that against the reduction in carbon footprint gun use causes.

It's common sense to allow gun owners to keep revolvers, pump shotguns, and bolt action hunting rifles.

Other than that, I haven't heard a valid argument for anything more.

No to get too much into semantics and take anything away from the records of Chicago, Detroit or Kansas City, the article calls it the worst mass shooting, does not say it's the only one. The other key take away is that it's a 'mass shooting' not just a shooting.

But you did get into semantics. Their worst mass shooting in 22 years was 7. We have only to go back to February 14, 2018 for 17 kids being murdered.

Or the 62 that have happened since then... How many do you suppose Australia has had in the past couple years?

I don't know, it wouldn't surprise me if the US had a worse record even factoring for population.

This wouldn't be my favorite thing but at least you are being reasonable. .44 magnum makes a heck of a trail gun.

Why I love the 2nd amendment. The USA is number 1 in the world in gun owners who kill themselves with a gun. Every year 20,000 gun owners voluntary improve the gene pool. That is awesome.

Only two posts for somebody to say something stupid.

It's always about rates. Acting otherwise is stupid.
