    Kill someone in a war
    Get a medal, you're a hero
    Protect yourself in everyday war
    You're a minority, you go straight to jail

          Guns dont kill people! People kill people regardless if they have a gun or not.

            Why is it that no one talks about the fact that most likely the shooters had piece of shit parents that didn’t teach them to care about people. Why do they just want to blame it on all violent video games, movies and guns like that is the only factor? It’s just like If you teach a pitbull to be a piece of shit and fight other dogs then that’s what it is but if you train it well to be a good dog then that is what you will get. I know there’s always exceptions but 9 times out of 10 I think this is how it works. Please tell me if you disagree.

              If I sold guns in my country, and there would be 2 mass shootings in a year, I would stop selling guns. but that is exactly the reason I am not rich.

                Only and all white people play video games? How interesting, cause literally all my friends that joined my Minecraft server yesterday are black, middle eastern, and Asian... guess since I’m white and I play video games means I’m going to kill someone. Can someone get MattPatt to talk about this instead? We all know he’s the only one that can talk about it reasonably

                        Which is also similar to Obama’s rhetoric on immigration. Sad to think that people can take other people’s word completely out of context.

                            If someone wants to kill, as you say is the case with mass shooters, not having a gun won't stop him. He'll use a knife, or a truck, or a bomb, or whatever he can. Saying the problem is guns is, well, rather ignorant.

                              @Rob Campbell Here's the thing, while I see what you are saying, allow me to first illustrate how small the firearm issue really is. Here is a list of everything that kills more people than guns in a year:

                              • Abortion (roughly 1 million)
                              • Cigarettes (480,000)
                              • Mal-practice (250,000 - 440,000)
                              • Alcohol (88,000)
                              • Overdose (70,237)
                              • Second-hand smoke (41,000)
                              • Motor vehicles (40,231)
                              • Firearms (14,242 homicides)

                              Guns are a very small problem in comparison to the issues listed above. Yet, we attack firearms more than cigarettes. Why? There is no Constitutional right that grants every citizen the freedom to smoke. But we still protect it like it is one. (I personally think smoking is fine.) There *IS* a Constitutional right for every citizen to own _and_ carry a firearm yet we attack it like it's Satan's plan. Why?
                              As for what you said about rifles, here's my rebuttal. First, very few rifles are capable of shooting hundreds of rounds in a short amount of time. Fully automatic weapons have been illegal in America for centuries. Second, rifles are used less in crime than handguns! Over 8,000 of the gun related homicides are done with a handgun, whereas the number for rifles is below 1,000. So, rifles aren't the problem.
                              Third, a car is capable of killing as many or more people than a firearm. Fourth, the only way to stop a criminal with a firearm is a good guy with a firearm. Fifth, criminals aren't known to keep the law. Banning any kind of firearms won't stop criminals from owning them. Sixth, the purpose of the Second Amendment is to protect citizens from a tyrannical government. So yes, we should be allowed to have high capacity firearms.

                              I hear this argument all the time... I believe the 2nd Amendment is a good thing. But people like you spouting this horsesh*t are part of the problem. Yes, if someone snaps and wants to kill people, they will kill people. But guns that can fire hundreds of rounds in a short period of time make it so they do the most damage. If all they have is a knife, they couldn't kill as many before someone interjects. I see nothing wrong with having a gun... it is our right as Americans to own one. But do we really need auto and semi-auto rifles with high capacity clips? WE are enabling these people because WE believe in our rights granted by the Constitution. But YOU (and people like you) are downplaying the role of these guns in these situations.

                            The real reason for mass shootings is that we had removed God and the bible from our public schools and that is a fact!

                                  Carry guns Americans. The root cause is mass shootings happen where people can't carry guns. Mmmmm. So where mass shootings happen where people are unarmed. What's changed is kids don't get there ass's beat remember cowboys and indians. When we adults were young. Violent. But it's called poor parenting. Tech kids respect. Kids don't get a asswhip'n. Parents are worthless. Because there kids don't get discipline. And no one can discipline them. Because it's abuse. Makes no sense off subject but listen if a animal is sick and suffering. Put them to sleep it in humane to let them suffer if a person is sick and dieing make them suffer as long as possible. The human race is stupid that's the problem

                                      Mexicans invaded Texas???? Hold the fuck up. First of all before Texas became a state it was a country and before it was a country it was territory from Mexico. More like the people who were from the US back then invaded mexican territory which are:Texas, New Mexico, California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and parts of Oklahoma, Kansas and Wyoming

                                            Right after ww2 the communist found out winning a war agenst the USA wasn't possible ,so they come out Whit a plan , first take over the movie industry to introduce violence and pornography into sosiety ,(people want to do what they see in movies)to destroy the family unity ,and take over the school system (remember it's all about changing the next generation ) today it's easier than ever to get a divorce (children end up Whit a single mom and are easier target) today we have lots of young people whiteout hope never had a father or a mom at home (because she has to work)and no direction depressed and watching vilant video games and movies and probably on medication .

                                              Ever consider that it's you, the people see smoke and blood but you see paper, SMH, you never created psychopaths but you did give them an instant cashout, they can drive a car through a croud and become a household name because of you, it's no secret that people want to be recognized, and you have enabled psychopaths to become celebraties in less than an hour.
                                              It's fine to cover mass shootings but just don't give anny attention to the shooter , don't even say their name.

Out of all the guns sold??? like I dunno Id assume by now some one would have tried and uzi or maybe a MP5 or even perhaps a large machine gun, and rgp or even grenades....nope.... Most of those states sell those gun or type of munitions. I just dont know why they always choose the AR...I mean do know why, but they know that I know there agendas gettin a little tired on the gun of choice being an AR............

They encourage it by glorifying the shitbags that do it. It makes for good news. If the shootings stop, what are they going to do?

More than 48 people shot with 7 killed. 17 in 3 shooting (over 4 = Mass shooting), 15 in 2 of them. So 5 Mass Shootings of 32 people, with another 10 that may have been 1-3 people shot at one time.
