That includes homicides, serial killings, or mass killings. USDOJ, FBISTATS. Mass shooters love gun free zones.
Uh, use the phrase "terrorism" and you'll get closer to the truth.....

Meaning - woundings and murders of people you don't know that are not just in the line of fire of your house. Terror for terrors sake.......

Oh, and we probably have 10X the number of innocents slaughtered as other advanced countries......

If you want to accept it as normal that's your problem. But comparing it with unrelated things (motor vehicle deaths, opiate deaths) is just plain silly.

These crimes are different.

With all good intentions, I strongly urge you to seek medical help.

As you see above they just come up with a different excuse when one fails. It's perfect. You can't lose if you are willing to lie, distort and bury your head in the same

The USA is different. An outlier in many ways. And terror by our own citizens is a massive problem now.

Funny how if "Muslims" killed 20 people here it's a BFD. But if just plain old American citizens with guns do the jobs, then it don't mean nothing.

So strange to read posts about how all these shooters with their "white nationalist manifestos" who are murdering people on six inch centers are actually part of a "deep state" plot to manipulate people, disarm them, and render the population powerless against plans to impose a dictatorship.

Sweet Jesus. Look around.

Assault rifles are not going to prevent a dictatorship.

how's that? Can the DNC get behind that?
You betcha!

The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives on Wednesday passed a universal background check bill — which, if the Senate were interested in passing it, would be the most significant gun control legislation in a generation.

Under current federal law, licensed dealers are required to run a background check to make sure a buyer doesn’t have a criminal record, history of mental illness, or any other factor that legally bars him from purchasing a gun.

Your argument doesn't hold water because the gun laws in place are NOT universal.

USA is a country with many states and you can travel easily between states.

Universal gun laws would have to be attempted before you could try to argue the gun laws don't work.

I'm not advocating for gun laws, just explaining why you can't argue that it is obvious gun laws don't work.

Exactly my point! We cannot screen every public venue, can we? The only other alternative is to.... (you know the answer.)

Amazing, same people hate and don't trust the cops, but also advocate that they are the only ones allowed to have guns. And the criminals won't obey no gun laws, so what about them? How do you plan to get rid of all of the guns off the street when our massive war on drugs can't even keep drugs off the street.
All kinds of drugs are most likely related to these killings. Prescribed drugs and illegal. So keeping killers and drugs off the streets, should go hand in hand.

You know there are problems. What can we do????
