... it's about mental illness and criminals. Making the NRA the focus is just a dishonest attempt at leading attention away from the real issues, and of course is also an attempt by racists to try and paint white gun owners in the U.S. in particular as 'The Problem'. Eliminating such weapons as bombs and vehicles, of course eliminates a lot of protected pet demographics of 'progressives', and most certainly eliminating serial killers and mass murders that are gang related as well, for instance. For any real debate of the issues involved, we first need to provide a genuine context for the debates and put 'school shootings' in their real context and perspective, which of course is 'rampage killings' and 'serial killings', just to name two categories. Once honesty is introduced into the 'debates', what is noticeable is ' guns' aren't the problem, and ethnic distribution changes dramatically, and categories of mental illnesses also become more prominent, such as homosexuals and murders of prostitutes, i.e psycho-sexual factors, which seem to proliferate along the same timelines as 'progressives' war on 'censorship' and increasing acceptance of sicko deviancy as 'normal', etc., etc. So, to start off ... List of rampage killers - Wikipedia List of serial killers by number of victims - Wikipedia Sample of a category all its own, not just in the U.S. but around the world. Many of these fall into 'unsolved', but definitely should be included. Murder, including mass murder, is a standard business tactic for gangs. MS-13 gang members indicted in brutal deaths of high school students - CNN 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment Chicago is especially noteworthy, as LA in the 'Crips N Bloods' vermin infestations still glorified by 'progressives', Hollywood, and the Grammy Awards. Crime in Chicago - Wikipedia The city's overall crime rate, especially the violent crime rate, is substantially higher than the US average. Chicago was responsible for nearly half of 2016's increase in homicides in the US, though national crime rates stayed near historic lows. The reasons for the higher numbers in Chicago remain unclear. An article in The Atlantic detailed how researchers and analysts had come to no real consensus on the cause for the violence. Note the cowardice of The Atlantic, and almost all other media hacks, to admit the obvious, which is why the media should never ever be allowed to control the debates on anything. Feel free to add your own lists to these; I just posted a small sample, to see what comes of it; much of it already posted in bits and pieces in other threads, so maybe consolidating the evidence here will make for a reference of arguments and data. Forget about the NRA and AR-15's; that rubbish deflection fails, and is just dishonest tabloid crap made up by spin doctors for the left wing deviants to parrot in lieu of genuine debates. And, let's not leave out drugs and its contributions to increasing levels of mental illness, either.
