And im actually kind of shocked that my initial reply could be taken as being serious. Actually I am a lot shocked, saddened and disappointed.... Because there are actually people who think that way..... 
Yes, there are plenty of people who think that way. I'm afraid I don't know basketcase(good name), that well, I should know you by now, I surely won't miss the sarcasm a second time and I apologize if you were offended.

 

basketcase

Fuck you second amendment

Not offended at all. Not by anything you have said. Offended by the state of America.

I am reading the book 'Skin in the Game' by Nassim Nicholas Taleb.  In that book, he postulates that 10,000 Americans die every year by suicide simply because guns are available and handy.  

I don't expect American gun culture to change for a generation or two.

Very possibly much longer than that.

The 2nd Amendment is child's play in the area of public safety and security.  The 1st Amendment almost took down this county a few months ago and is highly likely to eventually start a civil war that could leave thousands dead and our democracy in flames.  Wake up to the real threat if you want something to bleat about.  

Just saying.

Who fucking cares?  First of all, this thread is about mass shootings.  Suicides are not them.  2nd of all, they're quitters.  Self-selection at work.

Here it is, a thread that will go absolutely nowhere. Please don't reply unless you have a possible solution.
Honest and sincere question.....  how many of those were gang or drug war related?  I'm betting most of them.  Know why???  Aside from the couple that have made the news, the ones that don't get covered are almost always gang shootings.     

nevermind - I went to the source and started going through the incidents starting with the most recent.  Drive By, Drive-by, Drive-by, drive-by, Block party, drive-by..... and then I got bored because it was just so easy to answer my own question.  

Sorry, but these gangstas - mostly black teens and young adults - (Hi Joe) are not the "American Gun Culture".  I am the American gun culture and I have as much in common with these murderous thugs as Mikewoofers has with humility and brevity.

When will it be enough?

When federal judges stop equating an assault rifle witha pocket knife.

 Tom already did such research for us. He dominated the AW thread with anecdotes for months, in a dedicated fashion. 

Which is what scapegoating looks like. It becomes the basis for stop-and-frisk type behavior, mate.

Get your actual statistics out. Get your sources out. Because ne anarchist posted a sound, sourced, 13% gangsta gun fatality figure to you, last week. Take a look.

Go down Bad lat's list in the OP and see for yourself.  How many of those "mass shootings" are gang or drug related?

FLUFFY BOY RIDES AGAIN

Stats, mate. Let's see total homicides divided by verified (or even alleged) gansta shootings.

Sir, you would do well to seek the level of justice demanded within rap music (which I cannot stand FWIW).

So you won't even bother to look at the list BL provided from the GVA.  Typical.

I will, if you will read the Pulitzer Prize-winning 1619 Project.

Hmmm, you are back to cooing Chicago now. I thought I schooled you. (And you thought my head would explode. We were both mistaken.)

Dude, from what I have seen of you, you ever fail to ponder the mess behind the mess. You are predictable in missing the "heart of the matters" of both race, and gunz. And here, these are combined, and you are so confused you are... extra fluffy.

Tell you what, MLK offered a road map for this one, based on respect.

And Gary Slutkin has offered the successful model for inner cities: opportunity, combined with the re-assessment of violence on the playing field.

You'd rather people stick it out in a cuntry that freewheelingly kills innocents than elect to remove themselves and their support for a poorly thought out constitutional amendment. 

Right?

You can't separate guns from those reponsible and irresponsible, the NRA worked hard to make access to everyone. You may be the American gun culture, and you will pay just the same.  I am looking for solutions, not finger pointing.
