The majority of "mass shootings" are in the inner city. They don't want to change. You can't change anyone who does not want to change. Ask any addiction counselor.

If we start putting everyone who looks nuts in mental health facilities, half the US population would be in there. It isn't like these guys wear signs that say " I am a potential mass murderer !"

Incorrect. A fully automatic weapon has never been used in a mass shooting in this country, to my knowledge. They cost tens of thousands of dollars and are essentially illegal for most people to own.

It's believed that the Las Vegas mass shooting involved the use of a fully automatic weapon as one of the weapons or that the killer might have converted a semi to an automatic with a bunch of changes. But I don't know if that's been confirmed officially.

Since the law abiding people are not responsible for the drug influenced mass murderers, they have nothing to do other than refuse to surrender their right to life and to defend that life with firearms.

Remember, an armed populace fears no government.
A disarmed populace fears all government.

Which one do "they" prefer?

We would have heard about it if it were true.
