    Really....

    I'm from Chicago and guess what? 99% of the murders here via gun are gang or drug related.

    You sell dope to the wrong guy you get whacked, you do a drive by in the wrong hood you're getting a drive by right back at you - and that **** can last for weeks, months or even years, until the cops come in and attempt a truce and even when that doesn't work, they threaten to charge an entire gang with murder for one incident and even then that doesn't solve that problem because how the **** are they going to process 500 people in a gang war that spans 5-6 blocks?

    Those are the nuts with the guns..... Not the guy who likes to go out shooting at clay pigeons or paper targets on the weekends while he spends a few hours with his buddies shooting the **** (no pun intended)...

    Here is another site tracking mass shootings. between 2007 and 2013 27 mass shootings. 2000-2006 there were 9. According to this site. Bet I can find others with different numbers too.
    So tell us then, where do the majority of these mass shootings happen then, in areas where people can conceal carry or in so called "Gun Free Zones" ?

    Have a nice day. Hope your gun doesn't go off as you pull it from your truck and shoot your child.

    honest citizens should be able to freely own anything civilian police departments (state and federal) use. that includes handguns. laws that deprive law abiding Americans from owning weapons increases violent crime

    the greatest body counts in the last 20 or so years of mass killings have come from

    1) airplanes (9-11)

    2) fertilizer (Oklahoma City Bombing)

    3) a gallon of gasoline (Hispanic Night club torched)

    Stuff anti gun propagandists call "assault weapons" (semi auto military styled carbines) are used in less than 3% of all murders and very few suicides (which is the leading gunshot death category)

    about 80% of those killed by gunshot have adult or juvenile criminal records.

    I dont have to, i already knew the answer of course and most of the locations are gun free zones.

    There is plenty of info out there to verify this if you are interested in the truth instead of adherence to a particular ideology.

    So I provide you with information, you dont open the link to see the info, you ask a question asking for more info that was provided in the link, and you still refuse to open the link and you are now telling me that there is plenty of info if I am interested in the truth. The info is there buddy. If you are interested in seeing the numbers they are all listed in that chart. Feel free to open the link and see the data or feel free to just deny it all. Education or ignorance is a choice we all have.
