Washington Post: Shooting in Oregon: So far in 2015, we’ve had 274 days and 294 mass shootings



Today a shooter opened fire at a community college in Oregon. Early media reports indicate numerous fatalities and a number of additional people wounded. That brings the total of mass shootings this year -- incidents where four or more people are killed or injured by gunfire -- to 294.
There have been only 274 days this year.

I see this ongoing domestic occuance as a mirror of the ongoing disturbance overseas.

Apparently what goes around comes back around; suppose some offenders really do even crap where they eat?




3 years ago, Obama vows to take measures to stop the tragedies 'regardless of the politics' (irony much?):

Washington Post apparently doesn't have good reporters.

Thats not unusual...Very Predominant in High Crime Areas..Mostly Gang Shootings.

There are over 350 million People in the US, with half the People Armed...That percentage of shootings barely registers. More People are killed by Doctors

Vioxx alone killed over 40,000 people...Thats a low estimate. Some claim it was over 80,000, as over 80 million people took that drug before it was recalled and banned... www.drugwatch.com...

Yeah, I saw that. It seems like someone's trying to work statistics, in my opinion. Gang bangers and drunkin hillbillies don't count as MASS shootings in my book.

Yep - America certainly has a cultural and mental health issue it needs to deal with because lots of countries have gun rights for citizens but only the US experiences this type of event on a reoccurring basis.

So, it has very little, if anything at all, to do with guns.

United States is so far removed from what the Masonic "Founding Fathers" intended.

No one wants to address why. Or the combination of factors as to why. Obama and co have ties to Big Pharama so forget drug discussion.

Yep, that is how we typically get to our 14,000 per year...

We took out Saddam and Gaddafi and are trying to take out Assad and install a more diplomatic government..

maybe the same will be done with our leadership, to run our country better? By some other foreign or alien superpower.

And the MSM is not going to cover that story everyday. Because they are bought and paid for by big pharma.

They're rather spend that time trying to take our rights away.

I'll be all "fear factor" when it reaches 900. What's the point of this post? I suggest you ban life as you know it.
