    Anyone want to deny it? It’s averaged out one per day this year.

    Three or more victims constitute “mass shooting”, even if not fatal. Which means across the country all those gang bangers are getting cheated out of a lot of publicity.

    ONLY in America, folks. And Australia was going the same way until passing some reasonable laws, and now they’re back to a more normal level.
    This is not an unsolvable problem.

    There are on average 10,000 gun murders a year. which is more than 1. FBI statistic, not a made up Faux number.

    I’m not sure what you are trying to say. OldCoal was referring to the topic of the cartoon, mass shootings. He was not referring to shootings in general.

    When are you gun ban nuts going to address the problems causing violence instead of fixating on guns? You don’t care about the lives lost, just that you can try and ban something.

    Murders in Australia went up from 98 when the gun ban took effect until 2003. It is now barely lower than it was in 98 and the problem is obviously not guns or the murder rate would have been reduced to near zero. The same situation in the UK except their murder rate didn’t drop to the same as 98 until 2011. So what, exactly, did Australia and the UK solve?

    to call this a NRA EVENT is in my mind such a reach of reality you must be mentally ill. Is the ACLU at fault for the crime and death caused by drugs sold by protected dealers and smugglers they protect, no they stand for our rights one helps bad guys get a fair trial. The NRA speaks for me and keeps fools with zero grasp on the gun issue at bay.

    We mustn’t talk about it such a short time before the next tragedy.

    Australia claims to have had no mass shootings since the ban. But they don’t have a Constitushin that guarantees mass murders!

    @Kip W

    Good point. I’ve noticed the nra_always_ says you can’t talk about even reasonable gun control too soon after a slaughter, knowing there will be another one coming along soon.

    Who are these “Gun ban nuts” you refer to?
    Are you using the NRA definition of “gun ban?”
    Because I see no one advocating for gun bans. No to the contrary.
    You play the good old NRA game of “Let’s talk about the problems that cause the violence.”
    Well you do know that we “Gun ban nuts” have done that right? IT went something like this,
    NRA – “Let’s talk about the underlying problems that cause people to use guns in this way.”
    Rational THINKING People – “Okay, let’s. What do you think is the underlying cause?”
    NRA – “Mental illness and we need to get a better handle on the mentally ill people so they don’t end up resorting to violence.”
    Rational THINKING People – “Okay, we can agree that mental illness is a factor in the recent shootings. What do you propose we do about it?”
    NRA – “Well YOU need to do something to keep these wackos from being able to do things that hurt society.”
    Rational THINKING People – “You mean like getting their hands on guns and shooting people?”
    NRA – “That’s one way they hurt people. YOU have to do something about identifying the mentally ill so they can’t do this stuff.”
    Rational THINKING People – “You mean like expanding gun buyer background checks to include mental illness screening, if only of their past records?”
    NRA – “WHAO! Wait a minute, YOU have to do something to keep the nut jobs from being able to hurt people, but you can’t screen gun buyers for mental illness. Nope. No way. No how.”
    This was not the discussion verbatim, but this discussion actually happened. The NRA blamed mental illness for the mass shootings. Rational THINKING People suggested expanding gun buyer background checks to include mental illness and the NRA blew up in opposition.
    I have never seen anyone on GC advocate for a total gun ban. Sensible gun control and a demand for responsible gun ownership yes, but an outright gun ban, I think that would be an alternate bizarro world even in the alternate bizarro world so many on the right inhabit.
