It's mostly the semi-automatic thing. Step into a crowd and start pulling the trigger. Easy peasy.

30-50 feral hogs agree.

No an explanation for why some people carry out the mass shootings of innocent people in your opinion?

Do you think they are doing it because it is something they believe in? You seem to be implying that it’s no different from killing people in war or such.

I get that, there are lots of guns here in OZ as well but they're not as readily available as they are in the USA.

You're pretty smart.

Ask Lt. Calley.

You left that off your list which begins and ends with insanity because thats the company line this morning.
Get ready to hear the echo from sea to shining sea. From every republican senator and every host of FOX or AON and every surrogate for the NRA.

Tomorrow it will marijuana and gay marriages.

But it will never ever be the easy availability of guns.
BECAUSE THE OTHER FACT IN MOST IF NOT ALL OF THESE SHOOTINGS IS THAT THE GUNS WERE LEGALLY OBTAINED.
They didn't come from some black market weapons ring or gang banger arsenal clearance sale.

Very few people with mental illness are violent. Very few.

What does that leave?


A few violent mentally ill.

That is all it takes to get part of the country to demand taking away things from law-abiding citizens.

30-50 feral hogs agree we should use flintlocks as well, but we tend to have advanced our attacks and defenses in every other area since the creation of semi-automatic weapons as well.

After all if the trip the El Paso shooter took was by horse and buggy he probably wouldnt have went through with it. If he couldnt immediately espouse how cool it made him to the world would he have done it?

Not so much. If you're "sane" you're fine.

I believe he is suggesting the image of mental illness happens to be a perception around a person not by the perception with in the person. How many people can be sold on the idea seems relative to whether it is insane or not, but does that make it so?

Those are mass shootings or just gun murders?

The thing is this does not happen like it happens here and you pasting statistics does not change the fact that the mass shooter is almost exclusively an American problem.

Don’t tell me I’m leaving things off a list because of a company line, your the one round here clearly following and pushing an agenda.

Guns don’t shoot themselves they need an operator, and those that kill innocents on mass are insane however you try to spin it.

It is an amendment....It was added to the constitution.
It can be removed or changed.

That's the beauty of amendments.... they can be changed when they are no longer reasonable or necessary.



I don’t like what some people say so let’s drop the 1st amendment as well.

Dresden.
Bombs don't drop themselves.

My Lai.
M16s don't fire themselves.

All insane? Or just following orders?

Yes I have an agenda in this case. Its called saving lives.
And trying to blame this issue on mental illness is the cop out of the moment on the right to protect gun rights.
You cannot deny it and still exist in the real world. That is insanity.
