Ohh look. Things to that don't cause mass shootings:
- politics
- religion
- existence of semi-automatic weapons
>>
Will the US ever have a Port Arthur equivalent?
>>
>>440033
Nothing happened after Sandy Hook, so never. It doesn't matter how bad it gets, Americans consider things like Sandy Hook a small price to pay for the availability of guns. If anything, the only things that changed after Sandy Hook was that a bunch of states made it easier to get more guns.
>>
>>440042
What if a big corporation is threatened by a shooting like the fear of them causes their business to fall.
>>
>>440051
The gun industry is itself a bunch of big corporations, and they're much more invested in making sure that Americans are constantly buying more guns every single year. There are millions of Americans who own more than fifty guns each and buy more every year. That's a huge cash cow that big corporations don't want to lose, so they'll keep stoking fears of gun control without actually implementing any gun control. That way Americans will buy even more guns.
>>
>>440032
I don't ever remember anyone claiming that semi-autos existing causes mass shootings. That's just another GOP/NRA strawman. I think the general consensus is that making it more difficult to kill dozens of people in a matter of minutes is a concept worth looking into.

How does illegality deter someone from committing murder when they don't care if they survive?
>>
>>440090
>Murder isn't already illegal? Maybe we should make it more illegal.
Your reading comprehension leaves a lot to be desired. There is a specific reason the U.S. government has banned the general citizenry from using things like explosive rounds, incendiary rounds, fully automatic rifles and artillery - because regardless of the fact that mass murder is already illegal it has nothing to do with the fact that making mass murder more difficult to effectively commit is a sound idea. For example, stabbing people is illegal but most states still decided to outlaw spring-loaded ballistic knives and knives over certain lengths because there's no reason why we shouldn't make stabbing someone a more difficult task. Your logic is idiotic.
>>
>>440098
It has nothing to do with the legality of murder - its a matter of taking common sense steps to ensure that if someone does decide to commit murder that the tools and resources to effectively murder large groups of people is not as readily accessible. This is the exact reason the feds regulate things like fully-automatic weapons and suppressors so strictly.
>>
>>440102
>making mass murder more difficult to effectively commit is a sound idea
So we should make the gun-free zone signs bigger?

>For example, stabbing people is illegal but most states still decided to outlaw spring-loaded ballistic knives and knives over certain lengths because there's no reason why we shouldn't make stabbing someone a more difficult task.
God there's a lot of stupid shit to unpack here.
A: Murder with spring loaded ballistic knives has never been a serious problem.
B: Most states don't actually have bans on knives over a certain length
C: States with heavier knife regulations on average have more violent crime and stabbing than states that don't

>Your logic is idiotic.
You are absolutely projecting

>>440105

Is strawmanning the only method of debate you're comfortable utilizing? As I previously stated, the U.S. government regulating weapons and firearms to negate possible risk to the public is not a new or bizarre concept. They've already done it with suppressors, fully-automatic weapons, explosive ordinance, explosive rounds and other potentially hazardous compounds like C4 and TNT. As new public safety risks emerge, new legislation is drafted to address it i.e. bump stocks. You're trying to portray gun legislation as an ineffective monolith of a tyrannical government but the reality is we've been engaged in this practice for almost a century.

>God there's a lot of stupid shit to unpack here.
Your reading comprehension fails again. The comparison was simply to highlight a method in which state and federal governments utilize preventative methods to make committing illegal acts more difficult. The comparison isn't meant to compare the prevalence of gun crime to night crime - merely an avatar for risk assessment. Just because something is illegal doesn't mean that building roadblocks to impede an individual's ability to effectively commit said crime isn't a good idea. Every time I bring this up you fail to address this sole concept and instead strawman me with some ridiculous thing I never said.


>States with heavier knife regulations on average have more violent crime and stabbing than states that don't

This is where you prove that these laws did in fact make it more difficult- I.E- reduced the amount of stabbings.

>Just because something is illegal doesn't mean that building roadblocks to impede an individual's ability to effectively commit said crime isn't a good idea.
It does when it means infringing on the rights of people who have done nothing wrong. Collective punishment is a fascist concept.

>Every time I bring this up you fail to address this sole concept and instead strawman me with some ridiculous thing I never said.
I'm taking your own logic to it's inevitable conclusion, and also poking fun at at the insane response you people have to these incidents that results in your playing the same blame game over and voer and over while the problem continues to get worse. "Blame guns, do nothing effective, problem gets worse, blame guns, do nothing effective, problem gets worse", ad nauseum

If only there were other countries with other laws on gun to compare with. That’s clearly impossible though.

>If only there were other countries with other laws on gun to compare with. That’s clearly impossible though.
No actually, we can even compare US states with varying gun regulations, and we can see that states with higher regulations also have higher amounts of crime, including gun crime. The problem is that every time a certain group's rhetoric gets shot down, the topic suddenly stops being so hot-button.
>>
>>440144
>And it's been completely ineffective for just as long.
"gun control" is a very vague term, anon. What "gun control" are you specifically referring to? Universal background checks? Magazine capacity limits? To say you're for or against "gun control" is a vastly over-simplistic approach to a very nuanced topic.

>This is where you prove that these laws did in fact make it more difficult- I.E- reduced the amount of stabbings.
You're asking for hypothetical statistics, anon, did you know that? Not allowing the general public access to hand grenades has surely prevented a number of hand grenade deaths but I don't have any hypothetical statistics that show as such. You're trying to hit me with these "gotcha" strawmen concerning statements I never made. I never once advocated for any specific method of gun control, I merely stated that the government taking steps to negate possible public safety risks isn't a new concept. Whether or not specific legislation is effective is a whole different, much more detailed conversation.

>Collective punishment is a fascist concept.
Your logic, again, doesn't hold up. By your logic then every single piece of legislation meant to address public safety is fascist collective punishment. Do you agree that private citizens should have access to C4 explosives? This is the same concept. By denying me my right to own C4 my rights have been infringed on even though I've done nothing wrong, correct? This is your logic at work here.

>I'm taking your own logic to it's inevitable conclusion
misrepresenting the inherent premise of my statements by claiming I said things that I've never actually said and inventing my opinions for me i.e. strawmanning.

>You first, kiddo.
Nope, you made the claim so its your job to back it up. You claimed states with heavier knife restrictions have more violent crime. You said, you prove it.

>"gun control" is a very vague term, anon.
You clearly had a specific definition when you referred to it being in practice for over a century.
Are you familiar with the term "sea lioning"?

>You're asking for hypothetical statistics, anon, did you know that?
No, your argument was that there was "a reason" laws like this were enacted. What was the reason and where's the proof for it?

>By your logic then every single piece of legislation meant to address public safety is fascist collective punishment.
Correct.
>Do you agree that private citizens should have access to C4 explosives?
Yes.
>By denying me my right to own C4 my rights have been infringed on even though I've done nothing wrong, correct? This is your logic at work here.
Again, correct. This is where you back-peddle further and make an argument about the infringement being necessary for one reason or another, right?

>misrepresenting the inherent premise of my statements by claiming I said things that I've never actually said
If you keep this up you might be able to use this tactic to move your position into and entirely new argument, like a spider molting out of its old shell.

>Nope, you made the claim so its your job to back it up.
No see, the original claim started with you anon. You argued that these laws were in place and have been in practice because they effectively did something.
>>440102
>For example, stabbing people is illegal but most states still decided to outlaw spring-loaded ballistic knives and knives over certain lengths because there's no reason why we shouldn't make stabbing someone a more difficult task.

>>440177
It absolutely does.
>>
>>440179
It in now way does. But if that lie helps you sleep at night then whatever.
>>
>>440181
It does. If you combined the population of Great Britain, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Japan and Australia you would roughly get the same number of people that are currently living in the United States.

Now, if you combined the annual gun deaths of all those countries and compared them with the US, the US would outweigh them all greatly by about 37k+. At which point it becomes a question of whether or not American's are simply more violent by nature. But if you look at murder rate statistics, then the US is actually LESS violent than all of those countries combined. We simply have more guns than our neighbors.
>>
>>440230
But you do not need to add states together. Simply do the comparison relative to the other countries pop. It’s not rocket science.
But yes, when you do you find the shocking truth that having lots of guns means lots more dead people.
>>
>>440230
It's really unfair to throw Great Britain in there. The way things keep going, they're going to have to ban pens and pencils to keep the London murder rate comparable to NYC. Or figure out that banning shit doesn't fix social issues.

I disagree. If a few billionaires or important politicians get killed there will be change. The people in charge have huge security details. They like us being armed because mass shootings justify the police state, boost sales for weapons manufacturers, and make the Republican voter base feel like they are in control.

Not recommending anyone kill those people; strikes and boycotts would be more effective, but someone like Hinckley may try.

It is a strawman. Moved down here to Texas and I've actually grown to be anti-gun. Not because I have liberal/democrat views, not because of the tragedies over the years, but because of -these- gun nut people.

>We follow the law here! And we use legal wepaons while those homicidal maniacs get their guns from the blackmarket, so banning guns would only hurt us!

I think what pisses me off most, however, is that always, ALWAYS, WITHOUT FUCKING FAIL, a conversation where they mention gun rights and follow the law... then some fucker starts talking about his kick ass suped-up AR-15 with illegal parts to make it more powerful/accurate/full-auto.

This is actually why you're never going to pass gun control. The problem is that you don't understand how guns work. You don't get if these mods are actually illegal or what 'illegal parts' entail, you just see a culture you're not a part of and despise it purely because it's something you don't understand.

Which is fine, I don't get it either. I have no idea what any of the culture is about- But these aren't the people going on mass shootings and trying to crush them because they follow a hobby and you don't is insanely childish and furthermore: completely undermines the calls to create sane gun reform by being uneducated on the matter in the first place.
>>
>>440387
>Not recommending anyone kill those people; strikes and boycotts would be more effective
You're incorrect. Strikes and Boycotts do not, and cannot affect the billionaire class because we live in a captive market where the majority of them create wealth through pure existence.
Neither can guns, ironically. They have more and more security and political interests than you do.

It's people who feel insecure. Whatever the reason might be. They can fix it or at least deal with it. They refuse because it's a lot of work and refuse to admit they have an issue. They get radicalized in some form. They give up. Think they'll become a hero for doing the right thing and helping whatever propaganda radicalized them.

Doesn't matter if it's a religion or whatever else it will be. Hate yourself. Find something you can blame it on. Fix the issue. This is why Hitler hated the Jewish people so much. He needed someone to blame. He even did whatever his father didn't like just to spite him.

Reality check. No one gives a fuck about the mental health of the wastes of human resource who shoot people for no reason. They can off themselves. Neither I nor anyone else will care.
The goal is to limit the amount of harm they can do to other productive members of society. The easiest way to do this is to outlaw guns.
Your suggestion that "media I don't like causes gun violence" is a tired case with no empirical evidence to support it, and should be relegated to the garbage bin like the rest of the neo-con drivel which has saturated political discourse for the last 40 years.

Honestly kind of a shit article. Doesn't even address factors such as fractionalization of society, the fact that all of these people are on mind altering substances, and also the fact that the reason that the FBI always says that they were monitoring the shooter is because they were the ones who generally spur them on in undercover online communications in the hopes that they'll write some incriminating shit & they'll be able to catch them before they actually go through it.

This one should be a real eye-opener for people because two attacks happened in the same day from people who were on opposite ends of the political spectrum. Instead of trying to find an underlying motive behind both, people are instead screaming about muh right wing or muh antifa instead of the core issue.

You’re a putrescent mass, a walking vomit. You are a spineless little worm deserving nothing but the profoundest contempt. You are a jerk, a cad, a weasel. Your life is a monument to stupidity. You are a stench, a revulsion, a big suck on a sour lemon.
You are a bleating foal, a curdled staggering mutant dwarf smeared richly with the effluvia and offal accompanying your alleged birth into this world. An insensate, blinking calf, meaningful to nobody, abandoned by the puke-drooling, giggling beasts who sired you and then killed themselves in recognition of what they had done.
I will never get over the embarrassment of belonging to the same species as you. You are a monster, an ogre, a malformation. I barf at the very thought of you. You have all the appeal of a paper cut. Lepers avoid you. You are vile, worthless, less than nothing. You are a weed, a fungus, the dregs of this earth. And did I mention you smell?
Try to edit your responses of unnecessary material before attempting to impress us with your insight. The evidence that you are a nincompoop will still be available to readers, but they will be able to access it more rapidly.
You snail-skulled little rabbit. Would that a hawk pick you up, drive its beak into your brain, and upon finding it rancid set you loose to fly briefly before spattering the ocean rocks with the frothy pink shame of your ignoble blood. May you choke on the queasy, convulsing nausea of your own trite, foolish beliefs.
You are weary, stale, flat and unprofitable. You are grimy, squalid, nasty and profane. You are foul and disgusting. You’re a fool, an ignoramus. Monkeys look down on you. Even sheep won’t have sex with you.

Well, it is the in the Constitution as the final check and balance against abuse of power - and nearly all the other checks and balances have been removed: The POTUS can effectively declare war without congressional approval, can practically legislate with executive orders, can declare national emergencies to fund things, robbing congress of the power of the purse. SCOTUS declared that they are no longer a check and balance against abuse of power, when they let gerrymandering go. Even regulatory agencies today are regularlly subverted to undermine the very regulations they are obligated to defend.

Granted, when SCOTUS extended the limitation of the 2nd amendment to the states through the 14th amendment, in 2010, they also declared the 2nd amendment "defunct" as a check against tyranny. When the "originalist" Scalia wrote his majority opinion, he legally changed its definition to only apply to self defense. So, legally, at least, that check has been removed as well.

...And as more and more power falls into the hands of private corporations, there's almost no legal checks against tyranny left, only motivational ones.

So, you can see why certain groups are concerned over having their guns taken away as a mechanism against tyranny. It's not that most think they can win against the might of the US military, but they don't have to, only requiring the intimidation value to keep the heads of the snake in check.

One could argue it is clearly not working, but it maybe part of what ensures the degradation of rights and increase of corruption at least remains a slow process, rather than an all-at-once thing.

The real reason for mass shooters is simple. America is turning into a shityard run by shitty rich shits, shitty sjw/liberal trash, and criminals who get a free pass on the basis that they aren't white.

Solution...the ONLY truly effective solution...is sadly the execution of all these criminals by law enforcement. ...but our law enforcement is owned, operated, and manned by yet more criminals. This creates a hopeless situation that makes a lot of decent people very angry.

They then fantasize about fixing the problem, then actually follow through in the most foolish manner possible. ...by becoming mass shooters. ...but only because the rest of you are too cowardly to take legal action and fight all the corruption.

By virtue of your cowardice, you contribute to the problem.

Then the right to own weapons liberally becomes obsolute as there is nothing meaningful to do with them.

You always need guns to resist a tyrannical government. You think that you can actually resist the government peacefully every time?

Not only that but firearms are necessary to protect ones person, family and property. Cops have no duty to protect you and are also not always close by. I’d rather a very very small percentage of people die each year than for everyone to be absolutely toothless in the face of criminals and tyrants.

Don't they have to protect life? That sounds like such an fundamental purpose of a police that I can't imagine them not being bound by law to intervene and be allowed to violate laws protecting lower goods in order to save higher ones (f.e. policemen may trespass or break a door in order to rescue someone).
>I’d rather a very very small percentage of people die each year than for everyone to be absolutely toothless in the face of criminals and tyrants
The government has the strongest weaponry which it also needs to maintain its rulership. It can bomb or drone its own people and deweaponise everyone by force. That said, I veer towards believing that a third option exists where neither is the case. I don't think I tell you anything new by pointing on other countries or make up a hypothetical scenario of how I imagine getting there may look like. Which brings me to your firsrt point:
>You think that you can actually resist the government peacefully every time?
I don't know where you draw the line between peaceful and violent. But I do think that a state can be made so dependent on its citizens' obedience that it cannot ensure its existence through threat of physical harm. One way is mutually assured collapse, it works the other direction as well. And I think this is the case already, and that the issue is a mixture of guns being used to often without it doing anything of value, the lack of non-violent leverage against the governing system, and fear of people turning crazy against their own interests when most of the time this simply does not happen.
I don't know what the fuck to do, but I can tell you that when I go out, I don't worry about being killed, and I don't worry that, as things stand, the fire squads might take me tomorrow.
>>
>>441537
Another point would be practical considerations. While I find it retarded that Black Science Man and others pick up that argument everytime someone dies to gun - because it presupposes that homicides in any quantity are as unpreventable as people dying to diseases in any quantity - I think it cuts both ways: The likelihood of someone shooting up your local walmart while you are in it is so low that it probably doesn't matter anyway if you are prepared. Your government becoming tyrannic is much more likely but you are not the only one responsible for when it happens, and then it could be argued that it is outside of your power to prevent it in the first place. That's not how I feel you get anywhere when arguing about this, though.

That hasn't been a thing since the Vietnam war. The president can commit any act of war he wishes, for 90 days, and even fund it, before congress gets any say. By that time, it's political suicide to yank the carpet out from under the young men fighting a full blown war already in progress. This is in addition to an unwritten rule to support the president in times of war, so congress, while it occasionally preemptively legislates against one via neutrality acts, hasn't stopped a single presidential military action since Taft was in office in the early 1900's, and has never successfully opposed a violation of the War Powers Act.

>>441593 is right, in that the constitution has had more holes shot in it than any piece of paper on any target range. This is done largely by people deciding it's not their job to defend it, whenever not doing so favors "their guy" - consequences of the fact that it'll eventually favor their opponents be damned. As the party's power increasingly becomes more important than that of the nation's well being, this tendency only increases.

I'm guessing you're thinking "but that would take a lot of effort!". Well no shit, but so is driving to a "gun show" in another state and finding some asshole who will sell you a gun without going through a dealer. You'd expect at least SOME difference when applying strict gun laws, but there isn't any. Literally no correlation between the before and after. Go to NH or VT where there are almost no regulations outside federal ones, and enjoy the lowest murder rate in the country. Lower than most EU countries, even! Go down just a little to MA and the murder rate is double or triple some years, even though they have strict gun laws. Go to DC and enjoy some of the strictest gun laws, and one of the highest murder rates.
Just no correlation. Murder is related to culture, not the available tools.

NH and VT are literally IN the US right now and they're jam packed with guns. Why don't they have mass shootings (or basically any shootings or murder in general).
Culture. Nobody in those states hates their fellow man enough to gun down random people.
>gun shows
Aren't what you think they are. Dealers still need to do background checks and abide by all other laws. People selling guns at a booth are dealers. If you're not a dealer and you do that, the ATF will shoot your dog. You might be able to find a rando to sell you his gun, but you can do the same thing in any poor city neighborhood. Gun shows are a meme.
Also mass shootings are a meme, literally they don't show up at 0.01% on national murder statistics. Also it's easier to kill people with five gallons of gas or some fertilizer and oil. This whole conversation is retarded. The focus should be on how the fuck we cure the cultural issue of people hating each other in the US. Social trust is at an all time low.

It won't even do that. Lets say there were veto proof margins in both houses and a White House in favor of gun control, what could they realistically do? The last time gun control wasn't radioactive at the federal level the only thing that could pass was a fairly narrow ban on new sales of a class of weapons that were unpopular at the time with a sunset clause.

What do they have today? A whole lot less. New handgun regulations are pretty much off the table thanks to Heller and McDonald and any reasonable strategist recognizes that an attempt to change that situation is handing a conservative SCOTUS and easy victory. That leaves long guns, but even very blue states have enough hunters and recreation shooters that we're not going to see manual action or single shot weapons on the menu. Their only real swing is for semi-automatic rifles and shot guns. Thing is, nobody knows how many there are, who has them, or where they might be and institutional memory in the civil services is long enough to remember the 90s.

When it comes to regulation of actual arms, what we're really talking about is a ban on the transfer of new semiautomatic rifles and shotguns with everything already in circulation grandfathered in. Even if the inevitable court case was lost (which ain't happening with Kennedy gone) all that can possibly be accomplished is a pause on new sales lasting less than a generation.

Also, if anything was passed you can bet your ass 80% lowers are going to become the new rage for even very mainstream gun owners within a year.

Nobody is being made into a criminal. That fight was over a generation ago.

French here. To buy a weapon, you first need a license (quite easy, just be part of the local shooting range club or Hunt club) then you have to register the gun to the "prefet" (the local gov representative). It has to be mentioned that semi automatic and automatic are classified as weapons of war and are not sold. Also, you have to explain how you dismember the gun at home to avoid incident.

Thing is, thats not how the US works. I don't mean to say we're tougher or anything like that, but we have a strong tradition of self-help built into the law. I live in the most left-leaning city of one of the most left-leaning states in the country and it would be perfectly legal for me to shoot and kill someone guilty of trespassing in a occupied dwelling without warning and without them doing anything beyond being where they aren't supposed to. Our fundamental understanding of response to crime is rooted in ready access to firearms.

I noticed you didn't mention anything about the obvious counter point I provided, that some large parts of the US have almost no murder, less than 10% of other parts, yet they have the same number of firearms. The weapon most commonly used in murder in the US are blunt instruments. I'm not at all concerned about inconsequential terrorist acts, and nobody else should be either. The biggest terroristic killings in the US weren't done with guns. They were done with bombs and fire. Terrorists do mass killings because they get big attention for little effort. If we paid them no mind, they'd stop. These people are just irl shitposters, and everyone should know you must ignore the troll.

And law enforcement has developed ways to drastically reduce these. To do this they regulate and track sales of precursors. Not 100% effective but effective. We could regulate Ammo if you like. Only Ammo to use on gun ranges allowed - not 100% effective but effective.

>And that worked so well in your society
Don't compare your society to the US. It's basically impossible to have enough cops to have reasonable response times. The last time I called them, they showed up close to half an hour later. That's no fault of theirs, they had to finish up somewhere and drive 25 km. Europeans often don't realize how expansive the US is and how low the typical population density is. We also have big drug and crime problems because we're glued onto Mexico at the south, and domestic drug production is easy, despite trying really hard to crack down on it. Then there's the white/black problem. Many blacks isolate themselves in a culture of violence. Neighborhoods that cops will get killed in if they go in without basically military force.
>your local madmen can buy a gun much easier than a french mimolette !
You're seeing this news about shootings because they're being used to push an agenda. The real problem isn't rifles of any kind, but small cheap handguns. Saturday night specials, cheaply manufactured and available by the barrel in previously said crime ridden communities.
And even with all this, the US is fairly safe. Outside places like the bad side of Chicago and such, the murder rate is reasonable. NY even had a lower rate of murder than London in 2018! Mass murder isn't something people actually need to worry about.

It was a joke. People have accidentally brought knives onto planes plenty of times. I accidentally brought a multitool with a 20cm blade on my carry on luggage once.

That was the point, banning didn't do anything except make people feel safer, but we gave up a lot of freedom to get that illusion.
>VT """mass shooting"""
It was done with a bolt action rifle and 4 people were killed? Holy shit ban all guns now!
You can get a higher score with a baseball bat. This guy was targeting specific people. It was not a mass shooting.
>To do this they regulate and track sales of precursors
They do not. Ammonium nitrate is impossible to track due to its widespread agricultural use. Might as well track diesel fuel. Besides, McVeigh stole almost all the materials he needed for the Oklahoma City bombing.
As far as fire, 87 people were killed in the Happy Land fire, which was set by a guy who was just pissed at his gf. The building wasn't up to fire code, but if you disabled a building's sprinkler and blocked exits you could get a similar kill yield in many buildings.
I'm glad these memesters are going the easy route using AR-15s. If they went full jihad mode like McVeigh they could easily do a hundred or more per incident with just a little planning and prep.

>Weapons of war to hunt
Lol, you dont know shit. 5.56 is considered good enough for small deer but is used very often for coyotes, hogs, and smaller game. The AR, because of its popularity, has a MASSIVE aftermarket for accesories like no other gun on the planet. So you can easily use an AR for hunting, and you can even tailor it specifically for that. With hogs you absolutely need the big mags. They are completely fucking large swathes of forest and farmland, they need to be massacred when possible. And if they come after you, it's you v. 30-50. But of course this misses the point. It never was and still isn't about "hunting". The 2nd ammendment is about citizens being able to keep weapons of war so they may defend their person and those around them from an aggressor, whether that be another citizen, an invading military, or tyrannical government or sedious forces. Who will probably be using "weapons of war". Turns out you *can't* put the genie back in the bottle. With that there are probably 100,000-200,000 people in the US that use all kinds weapons legally for shooting sports on a very regular basis. You have no concept of the gun community or shooting sports, so of course you'll trample on others rights and recreation because it doesn't affect you... god forbid a massive multimillion dollar media campaign over the course of decades was run against soy lattes.
>Yes police men with guns
You mean the only people who are permitted to carry in most public places, and the only people who can carry socially acceptably?
>Easier for a bystander to stop an asshole with a knife
It would be easy if the bystander had a gun... not so much otherwise. Knife fights are messy things. It's mostly, go for major arteries as fast as possible until someone drops. If you aren't as physically capable or motivated, you will be killed. On the other hand you could pull a 5-6lbs trigger regardless of physical stature or natural aggression in fight or flight scenarios.

4 is a normal cutoff for defining mass shootings anon. And no, you cannot kill as many people as quickly with a baseball bat. Nice try.

They do.

More planning is not how most, most, operate. The Vegas shooter had a looooong fuse. However, most people don’t, they will either suicide or give up on the idea. Reducing access to guns vastly reduces mass shootings/killings. See: Europe.

Ehhh, who cares. Violence is violence. Just because more happens in one instance is no matter. Overall violence in white areas in America is on par with Europe, guns or not. Also doesn't explain why there weren't many mass killings with rifles until the 00's after guns had been in existence for hundreds of years, and semi-autos perfected and easily available from WWII on.
>>
>>446552
>how many plane stabbings have there been? Answer is zero.
Like a few, probably. I'm not about to go look it up but it can't be zero. You could always bring a ceramic blade. There are big holes in the security if you think for a few minutes.
>4 is a normal cutoff for defining mass shootings
Four is a retarded cutoff. Mass shootings are about ideology, not the number killed. Although if you kill a dozen, your ideology is probably one of mass murder. I could make a shotgun out of some bits of pipe and kill four people pretty easily. The guy used a fucking bolt action rifle.
>They do.
They "track" it in the same way TSA provides "security". You can buy enough pure reagent to make a small bomb without raising any suspicion, and you can purify it from readily available hardware store nitrogen fertilizer. Yeah, it's a pain in the ass, but these mass murderers generally plan this shit for a long time, and if they have the $1,000 for an AR-15 then they can afford a small ANFO bomb to take out a bus or some shit.
>Reducing access to guns vastly reduces mass shootings/killings.
The NFA and Assault Weapons Ban had no effect on the overall murder rate, which is what matters.

the same patterns that lead to the radicalization of white supremacists and other terrorists can apply to misogynists who turn to mass violence: a lonely, troubled individual who finds a community of like-minded individuals online, and an outlet for their anger.

How many places do you think there are in your house where you could even fire a shot 10 yards from your target with your arms extended? One of the interesting things about guns is that you don't really need to be THAT proficient. At distance or for a moving target they require some skill, but shooting a guy in your hallway or pistol jabbing a mugger during a struggle is dead easy.

You're leaving money on the table. Gun free zones aren't havens for leftists, they're unconscionable restrictions on liberty that we ought to fight.

>if we lose our guns how do we protect ourselves from the government, because we still think it's the 19th fucking century and a militia force of untrained civilians can take on a military with its logistics, training, and available hardware.
This is kinda faulty because unless you're a total nutter chances are when it comes to any kind of oppression that would deem it necessary to bring out your guns against the government, chances are the military and police force will have conflicting views on the matter and won't be able to perform to its fullest. Even in a case like Vietnam you had a significant portion of Americans not really supporting the war, given how the internet is today how likely is it that the government can pull one over and manage to turn the military and police into their lackeys for their oppression?
>>
>>447308
>Why is america the only place where shootings happen more than any other place?

Because we have the most guns. Holy shit, its basic statistics. That doesn't mean guns are more dangerous, or that people can't be trusted with them, it just means that if you have more knives around you get more stabbings, if you have more guns you get more shootings, if you have more bricks you get more blunt trauma. People are always, ALWAYS going to find a way to kill each other when they've made the decision to do that. We were bashing each others' brains in with rocks long before guns were even a twinkle in someone's eye. The only argument to be made is whether you trust citizens or governments more with the power of firearm possession, and one look at the US Government from overseas should tell you why we don't want to give up that right to our government.

I just took ten seconds to google "Mass stoning" and "Killed with Brick". Nothing you say is going to change the fact that some people are fucking animals, and they're going to find a way to do what they want to do and kill who they want to kill, no matter what you take away. Firearms just give those of us who don't regularly plot murder a chance to defend ourselves from people like that, and people like you, who think your security supercedes our rights.

Why is no talking about the Alabama shooting right now ???
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say two men have been killed and three others injured in a shooting near the campus of Alabama State University.

Montgomery police Sgt. Jarrett Williams tells the Montgomery Advertiser that the shooting occurred Thursday night.

Williams says a man was pronounced dead at the scene, while another died at a hospital. Both had been shot. Williams says two other men were hospitalized with life-threatening gunshot wounds, while another man was hospitalized with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.

Investigators did not immediately release details about what prompted the shooting or if there are any suspects. kbjr6 com RIGHT NOW

According to research studies conducted by The Institute of Incelisum Science, majority of desirable women suffer from severe mental illness that symptoms usually include anxiety, alcoholism and rejecting unattractive males. They've concluded, "We need to make it mandatory by law for attractive women to be medicated until she accepts the ugly guy as her mate."

Though further research into that study contradicted a serious bi-product being if another ugly guy also wants her, then by Incel mandatory law, she'll have to be given double dosages of the mental illness drug until she accepts the other guy. And if a third one fancies her, then triple the dosage and so on... or until the female becomes deceased...from all that medication.

We asked a client, who wishes to stay anonfag, what happens if she becomes a vegetable from all that Incel medication and it replied, "Sounds doable. Just so as long as that pussy's wet, it's all good with me. What up!"

Define "couldn't." What law prevented you from just writing up a bill of sale and moving on with your life? Hell, what law prevented you from claiming you went to the next state over and did it?

Owning a handgun was illegal in Chicago for most of my life, that didn't stop me from buying a couple and getting a carry license after we beat them in court. I never registered a damned thing, either.

>What law prevented you from just writing up a bill of sale and moving on with your life?
Ummmm, federal law? FFL transfers are required in damn near every state with a few odd exceptions.

>Owning a handgun was illegal in Chicago for most of my life, that didn't stop me from buying a couple and getting a carry license after we beat them in court.
So you decided to break the law. How is that a negative reflection on those who decided not to?

>Hell, what law prevented you from claiming you went to the next state over and did it?
Its weird you need us to explain to how lying to the federal government about where and how you purchased a firearm that isn't registered to you is against the law.

>Define "couldn't."
An FFL employee literally told us I could not do this. That I had to drive all the way back home, give to X gunstore that would give to Y gunstore, then he could pick it up.

Its weird that you think private sales are illegal or somehow required to be reported to the federal government when one of the central arguments in the current gun control debate, the "gun show loophole," is literally about trying to ban private sales by making all transfers have to go through an FFL. You don't even need a 4473 for a private sale.

You're talking about an interstate transfer? I suppose thats technically what you're supposed to do but, again, theres no means of knowing so why the fuck would you go through the effort and expense of compliance with a law that only exists because everyone lost their shit when Kennedy got tagged.

The real problem is that rural areas are dying. The innovative and productive people are almost all moving to cities. Rural areas are aging and depopulating - that is the real problem.

>>447998
I've lived in Chicago for going on 40 years. The thing about cities, even cities with a reputation for being dangerous or violent, is that the violence isn't evenly distributed. The neighborhood I grew up in had virtually no serious crime outside of teenage boys occasionally beating one another up over what somebody said about someone else's mother and the odd burglary while someone was out of the house. When I moved into the ghetto nobody bothered me because I was a white guy who looked like he knew where he was going, but even then you could walk half a mile west and end up in a Hasidic neighborhood with zero public crime. The neighborhood I live in now has crime rates similar to Luxembourg.

Concentration of people isn't the problem, its concentration of poverty. You take a bunch of poor people, stuff them all into one place, and they're going to get out of hand. If you make it clear that spreading that chaos into the surrounding areas won't be tolerated (either because you're moving into the Mexican neighborhoods and the old guys with hand tats aren't going to put up with that nonsense or you're moving into the old white neighborhoods where the cops aren't going to notice if a guy who works a white collar job tuned you up in an alley) it gets hotter. Add in the working folks not being too keen on paying for more programs because the Rev'runds buy themselves Mercedes and run for office with the money they were supposed to spend on unfucking things and you have a recipe for bullshit.

Its localized bullshit, though.
>>
>>448008
>Please, see what happens if you OUTLAW GUNS.

Everybody acts like thats a realistic outcome. The left screams about banning rifles, the right shouts about cold dead hands, but nobody has the juice to start that fight.

If you're a pro gun person you need to stop engaging with their bait. They can't outlaw guns, they know they'd lose at the SCOTUS. Pelosi is well aware that she can talk about an AWB to gin up her base because theres no chance it will pass and thus no chance she has to worry about what Kavennaugh is going to have to say about Miller.

The real concern is that there are elements of the Democratic party who have looked at how the GOP has chipped away at Roe v Wade and are learning. Its not going to be outlawing guns, its going to be red flag laws, its going to be expanding prohibited persons classes and not allowing for uniform due process, its going to be regulating materials and manufacturing in the name of consumer protection, its going to be banning private sales and digitizing FFL black books just in case FOPA falls, its going to be the Obama strategy of making huge ammo order to create shortages and drive up prices. They want you worried about a ban they can't pass so you don't notice, or don't fight so hard, against the thousand cuts that come after.

Is this the first extensive investigation on mass shootings?

Interesting that sexual abuse plays a part in it. Some church groups online states that the spread of homosexuality is the cause because they believe that homosexuality can cause instability in a person's mind and body.

Don't know if it is because we have free health care that does involve mental healthcare or the fact we outlawed gun.
>But they could attack with knife or bricks.
Breaking news : unless you are an anime character, it is really hard to kill as much people with a knife than with an assault rifle. It is also much easier for bystander to beat the asshole to a pulp. Same for the brick.
But hey. Social healthcare and gun outlawing doesn't work.

But some of your argument are right. There is already too much guns in circulation in the USA for that to be effective... It is funny how much my generation to wanted to live in your country when we were young and naive and then... We became young adult and we make jokes about that. I'm happy to not live in the USA. So much.

Funny in my country "nigger" (actually in my city, it is more the Russian or the gispy but they are also decent folks and if you don't bother with them, they will not bother you.) keeps their guns to themselves. But since I'm not part of this, I'm not going to speak and say absurdity. However I can confirm you that the three times some dudes tried to enter in my house, my gentle dog scared the shit out of them. So... It does work in France.
>Harder for you than for them
Because of black market I presume? Well if you do need a gun, let's be honest. You have already so much in circulation that obtaining one won't be difficult.
>Don't trust the government.
