That's sort of what these guns are designed to do -- basically just wave it around with the magazine rolling. So if they "randomly sprayed bullets" into a crowd, you'd think many more than a handful of people would be killed. Didn't they say there were hundreds of people in that Walmart? Seems odd that no more are ever killed than would be if the guy were walking around with a pistol.

Both were bat**** crazy ? Both couldn't cope with the hatred and anger they had built up inside ? Both made the conscious decision to kill other humans ?

They quickly rise when you pull the trigger on full auto and you wind up shooting the sky.

Every LEO agency and all the armed forces teach controlled small bursts. Even with the big machine guns.

I always figure there are reasons why links to data are not given.

The problem seems to be the lack of data, and the Fed made it illegal for the gov (or not required, or some such) to TRACK this stuff.

This: https://www.statista.com/statistics/...ngs-in-the-us/

Shows mass shootings at the highest level in 2018, and goes back to 1982.

I looked through a lot of google searches, and found it difficult to find data that was not put out by an obviously biased source, on both sides.

You can't solve a problem without information, and really, we should start there.

Don't fall for their agenda and always be ready to cite stats. The Left will never touch the topics like the daily mass shootings in Chicago and Baltimore. Let's just take Chicago as an example of what the media won't touch:

Murders between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 by year:

2018: 561
2017: 660
2016: 777

Shooting victims between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 by year:

2018: 2,948
2017: 3,463
2016: 4,351

There is a segment of the US population that is quite insane. It is largely those who voted for Trump. Poorly educated, economically backward, unable to cope with the 'browning' of America and sadly too often acting out violently as their form of political expression.

I'm sure 100 people have already pointed this out to you, but I'm not reading through all of these.

So - -

Like conservatives demonize:

Hispanics?
Immigrants?
Muslims?
Blacks?
Coastal elites?
The educated?
The press?
Liberals?

Yea, it's really the liberals and only liberals who do this. What a bunch of hypocritical d-bags.
