Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

Say, did anyone else hear this on NPR today?

How many times per year does a gun go off in an American school?

We should know. But we don't.

This spring the U.S. Education Department reported that in the 2015-2016 school year, "nearly 240 schools ... reported at least 1 incident involving a school-related shooting." The number is far higher than most other estimates.

But NPR reached out to every one of those schools repeatedly over the course of three months and found that more than two-thirds of these reported incidents never happened.

That is a hot take! Wow what a scoop!

Limbaugh read some false early reports and believed them. That (sadly) happens all the time these days.

Truth.

Note that one (maybe two if you link mental health and lead exposure) of the "three factors that cause this kind of violence" are mentioned in this Washington Post article as well.

It's looking like the latter. It's being reported that he had a history of erratic behavior, and he recently filed a lawsuit against CNBC and TD Ameritrade, claiming that "the companies sought to invade his 'private life by tapping into the electronic devices and feeding off attachments such as audio speakers and digital cameras.'"

Good thing the NRA does everything it can to keep guns in the hands of mentally unstable people then.

I bet it was a white guy who had the gun legally, but also had a history of violent behavior and/or mental illness who, in hindsight, should not have had the gun.

Seriously though, with the wife being present, I wonder if she was cheating on the husband with the guy he confronted at the trucking company?

CNN reports that's the third mass shooting in a 24 hour period.

Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

ONE person with a gun, and the important statistic is not whether anyone was killed, but how many were killed. I'm sorry, I simply do not believe that this was what the Founding Fathers had in mind when they wrote the Second Amendment (and all weapons were single shot, requiring a lengthy re-load). If they knew the damage a single armed person can now cause, there would have been more stipulations in that amendment. Hell, they already knew that arms require regulation, because THEY PUT IT IN THE FUCKING AMENDMENT.

Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

A lady mass shooter this time. And a military type response. I wonder why regular police wasn't enough. Maybe they thought it was large scale terror attack. I've send reports that she used a glock but haven't seen anything official.

Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

There was a horrible event in a college in Cremea today. Single person planted a shrapnel bomb in the cafeteria and went on a shooting spree. Looks like at least 18 dead, including the piece of garbage attacker. Like most, he didn't have the balls to take the punishment for his actions and killed himself.

Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

Mass shooting prevented? A lady reported a guy for racist posts. The police looked in on him and caught him leaving his house wearing a bullet proof vest, loaded down with guns and ammo and a detailed plans to shoot up a couple of schools.
