    Without intention to do so, your links have supported virtually every point I have made on the gun control issue. That includes the last link which you likely believed was going to shoot down my argument. Instead it addressed my point on this nation's revolving door justice system. Concealed carry did not increase the number of guns available on the street. There is always going to be some a**h*** willing to smuggle in guns. The problem is that those arrested who commit violent crimes with guns are back on the street before the ink on the arrest paperwork is dry.

    You proved that to be the case with the first two links you posted to me. However concealed carry laws do not address a revolving door criminal justice system that your last link pointed out. The problem with so many of you on the gun control side is that you hate the right to bear arms, however when someone is arrested with an illegally possessed gun, you lack any concern about how long before the offender is back on the streets to do it again.

    Actually, here, I looked it up. The FBI actually has a table for that- https://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/uc...ation_2013.xls

    Hmm.
    Just the main two. We do not enforce the gun laws already on the books and we have a revolving door criminal justice system. That about covers it. All of these mass shooters have much in common.....drug abuse and mental illness.

    Sorry. I don't buy it.

    Which gun laws are you talking about?

    Why do you ignore the direct influences on mass murders--web sites, hate groups ?

    Dang them AZNs.
    Seriously, its not the color of the skin. It was whom they were with, or whom they associated with, or whom they protected. Not just because they were of the same skin color.

So, when the Democrats joined with some Republicans to pass the Civil Rights Act, the Dixiecrats jumped ship and became Republicans en masse. Today, the folks who would have been Dixiecrats in those days are the tea party.
    You are making it up as you go along. The truth is that 80% of the dixiecrats remained in the democrat party. So your enmasse suggestion is dishonest. As is your suggestion that today's tea partiers would have been dixiecrats in the civil rights era. The motivation of the dixiecrats was all about race. Today's Tea Partiers are about limited government and tax fairness.

    No, that wouldn't be a hate crime then.
