    Correlation does not equal causation.

    This idea that stuff that works in other countries can’t possibly work in the USA is bullshit.

    You have 35,000 people dying every year by gun violence. Another 100,000 a year are wounded. And it’s not just gangbangers and brown people. The vast majority of victims are white people. The vast majority of gun suicides are white people in the mid-west. The highest rates of violent crime are now I the fly-over states.

    25,000 of the 35,000 are suicides. that isn't gun violence, that is someone killing themself.

    That you have to lie right of the bat shows your views are worthless.

    The Useful Idiots are playing right into the hands of the killer.

    He said he could have killed the Muslims other ways but chose to use an AR to rile up the anti gun nuts and he succeeded.

    This is what happens in a country without a Bill of Rights and separate branches of government. You get rule by the Mob.

    Good new for the Japanese. If they ever decide to invade Ne Zealand they don't have to worry about a New Zealander behind every blade of grass.

    Have you ever considered that there are already millions of semi-autos out there, and any crackpot likely to repeat such as crime already has one? Bans mainly affect one thing: legal commerce between law-abiding reasonable people; criminals and sociopaths just go around such laws. The ban will mainly serve to prevent lawful people from protecting themselves or enjoying other pursuits and hobbies and hurt the dealers who now are left stocked with inventory they paid for but cannot sell nor return.

    One more example of political expedience at addressing the symptom because the cause is much harder to deal with.

    Dead is dead. It doesn’t matter who wields the gun. All of this death and violence costs your economy billions of dollars every year. From the costs of investigations, medical treatment for the injured.

    Highest murder rates in the free world and thehighest suicide rates. Highest rates of drug addiction, obesity. Lowest ranked health care system and worst public education system in the free world.

    Americans are”exceptional” alright. Exceptionally pigheaded and stupid.
