    1. "Using news accounts and FBI records from 2006 through 2010, the most recent years for which complete records were available, USA TODAY identified 156 murders that met the FBI definitions of mass killings, where four or more people were killed.

    a. The review offers perhaps the most current, complete picture yet of a crime that is both frighteningly common and not widely understood.



    2. The killings between 2006 and 2010, however, offer a portrait of mass murder that in many ways belies the stereotype of a lone gunman targeting strangers:
    Lone gunmen, such as the one who terrorized Sandy Hook Elementary School last week, account for less than half of the nation's mass killers. About a quarter of mass murders involve two or more killers.

    3. A third of mass killings didn't involve guns at all. In 15 incidents, the victims died in a fire. In 20 others, the killer used a knife or a blunt object. When guns were involved, killers were far more likely to use handguns than any other type of weapon.




    4. Children are frequently victims. At least 161 who died in mass killings -- roughly one in five -- were 12 and younger.

    5. Mass murderers tend to be older than other killers, with an average age of nearly 32 years old. Like all killers, they are overwhelmingly men.




    6. But for all the attention they receive, mass killings still accounted for only a tiny fraction — about 1% — of all the Americans who were murdered over those five years.

    7. During those five years, more died from migraines and falling out of chairs than were murdered by mass killers,..."
    Mass killings occur in USA once every two weeks




    The CDC did an exhaustive study of the effectiveness of gun laws....

    "The systematic review development team identified 51 studies that evaluated the effects of selected firearms laws on violence and met the inclusion criteria for this review. No study was excluded because of limitations in design or execution. Information on violent outcomes was available in 48 studies, and the remaining three studies, which provided information on counts or proportions of regulated firearms used in crime, were used as supplementary evidence. Several studies examined more than one type of firearm law."

    Ready?


    The Task Force found insufficient evidence to determine the effectiveness of any of the firearms laws or combinations of laws reviewed on violent outcomes.

    Why?


    Because guns are not the problem.

    Think about that.

    No it isn't.

    As with any problem, it's the application of logic, experience and the data to find a solution.
    If one actually seeks a solution.

    If not, shout "it's about the children."


    For Liberals, it's finding a cudgel to beat the opposition into silence and compliance with....

    Who was that wise wag who noted:
    "Not facts, nor data, nor experience, nor rational debate will convince Liberals."


    In your case, your ability has taken you as far as you can go.

    yes, yes it is about the kids. We've accepted these things as normal for awhile. Why because most of them have been about adults and a motive. There doesn't seem to be a very reasonable motive here. These where 6 year olds who where murdered.
    This set the bar to a new level that nobody expected. Guns are part of the problem, and i do mean part of the problem, but not the only problem.


    I really dont care about your views on liberals. That has no place here and you are using dead kids to attack liberals. That's scummy.

    You need to rethink your opinion on this, because right now you look like a pile of shit.

    When did you ever apply logic?

    jeezus. Go tell the parents of the dead kids to stop whining because it's not like they're the only people ever lost a loved one,

    if that will make you feel better.

    and while you're at it why don't you put your lameass assault rifle avatar back up?

    I appreciate the opportunity to educate you, and drive home the point about Liberals.

    1. Illegal drugs: that means not eligible to be bought or sold. Ever. Under any circumstances.

    2. Kids buy illegal drugs. Every day.

    3. Guns: some are legal to buy...with background checks or waiting periods. So there may be a legal-illegal overlap.

    4. Now...if the fact that illegal drugs are illegal, yet readily bought and sold by kids.....clearly the attempt to ban same is a failure.

    I'm sure you've heard the term "failure" often.

    5. Based on the above, how successful would a ban on guns be?


    And....since we already know that it would be a 'failure'....did that hurt?...what does that say about Liberals....the ones who are attempting to advance a proven failure of a strategy.


    You see....Liberals claim to want to see the innocent and the criminals both disarmed....yet only a fool....that hurt?....doesn't realize that only the honest citizen would be disarmed.


    Q.E.D.

    Hey, moron...er, meson....

    Items #1-7 are from Liberal journal USAToday.


    The CDC is not in any way right wing.


    But...you are a moron.

    So you are not in favor of banning guns?

    Good to see you retreat.
