From what I have seen with 'friendly fire' sounds like we would have even more casualty and deaths.

Policemen carry guns for a living and they kill people accidentally all the time for ridiculous things.

I appreciate you may think and may be able to have the composure to correctly discharge a weapon in a chaotic scene or whenyou are frightened....but given the examples of law enforcement officers in this country, I suspect most would not be able and we would have even more senseless deaths from guns.

I respect if you want to own a gun...but calling for everyone to own a gun doesn't sound like the wisest strategy.

You are less likely to be murdered by a generic white man than any generic Muslim man you encounter.

Asians are actually slightly overrepresented in "mass shootings" of the "berserker" type.


Stats, facts and damned painful truths.



Latino data is very mixed and inconclusive since nobody is working with the same definitions (kinda how the Parkland Shooter, a Latino, is conveniently white for the purpose of the narrative. And how George Zimmerman killing Trayvon was hailed as an instance of white guy shooting black kid).

White men make up over 60% of the shooters in the past 37 years. Blacks make up less than 20%.

From just 13% of the total population, 53% of ALL Murders, 69% of ALL violent crime and 72% of ALL burglaries/theft/robberies.
Statistics matter.

Something weird about this one. There is another guy with the same name and whose sister has the same name as this guy. They even look similar. What the hell is the Deep State playing at?

And an Elizabeth Warren supporter. (Notice, we're not hearing that on every newscast.)

Therefore, I'm certain that the news media will be asking if she "disavows" his stated beliefs--which are as liberal as one can get.

Well, sounds like we can rule out ANTIFA, politics, and any speculation about domestic terrorism in the Dayton shooting.


This dude was NUTS.


::edit:: twitter link has curse words. But the shooter was the lead singer of some heavy metal bad that made songs about necrophilia. Mental illness for sure.

‘Friendly Fire’ Killing of Detective: 42 Shots, 7 Officers, 11 Seconds

If you assume 'everyone carries -- and you have 50-100 people with a gun -- how do you guarantee no chaos...measured, calculated reactions.

You can't.
