Maybe they're horrible shots who can do nothing but randomly spray bullets around.

What's funny about it?

Seeing as how Whites are a minority in South Africa, I wonder White male conservatives there have it even worse even though South Africa has a lot of a smaller overall population than the U.S. does.

One has to pass a background check to apply for a purchase permit (or have a CPL) , then another background check at the time of purchase, then the handgun is registered with the MSP. Maybe another law or restriction might help ?
They steal the weapons, duh. Criminals will steal because they are criminals and most have rap sheets a mile long. Answer this question lefties, why are these people out of jail?

Difference between gang violence and what happened in El Paso is gangs deal with each other. Granted the wrong people get caught in the cross fire but gang members want to stay out of the radar. Their only motives are territory and drug sales.

In El Paso, the only motive this person had was to kill as many as he could and make a name for himself.

Either way, both are symptoms of a bigger issue in our society. But differ in what motivates them.
