Not to mention that a mass shooting is defined as one person killing 3 or more people in one sitting. These gangland shootings are usually one person killing one person.

So not only is this thread a classic diversionary tactic, the OP even made up their own definition of mass shooting in order to undertake the diversion.

I don't know much about Connor Betts from the Dayton shooting, other than his family looks normal on facebook. We'll have to see what his motive/idealogy was.

I hardly think it's sane, at this point, to do any finger pointing at ALL toward liberals, or a liberal philosophy. The opposite.

This is a bit like shaking your head and going there ya go again, women causing trouble.

Are you also surprised that people die regularly in war zones? Because that's essentially what some of these areas are.

But you know that already.

Agenda much?
So, (after all the Internet SM debating...) which type:
  • gets more media (mass and social) coverage?
  • takes more lives and casualties?
  • if controlled (reduced or eliminated) would be a bigger benefit to society?
  • is easier to control?
  • how?

The numbers are going down. That's actually good news.

But you still refuse to admit that you are comparing a virtual war zone to places that are not, and pretending there is a valid comparison there.

Your agenda is showing.

I have no agenda. Shootings are shootings. Tens of thousands of shootings are committed in inner-cities each year that never receive any attention from the media. The media focuses on lone-wolf type attacks. Both are terrible but the media has a clear agenda because they choose to focus all of their attention on the lone-wolf type attacks.

It took him less than a minute to do all this damage. Image if officers had responded 5 minutes later

Inner-cities account for tens of thousands of shootings every single year. The media never touches those collective numbers because it doesn't fit their agenda or narrative. Chicago had 4,351 shootings just in 2016 alone. So where is the "epidemic?"
