    Gun ownership declining as a percentage:


    Hand guns are responsible for most gun-related homicides (goes to the argument re: assault weapon ban):


    Tried to go to the referenced articles but had a hard time finding them:


    The references are:
    [99]: Article, "Gun Flows to Criminals Laid to Tiny Fraction of Dealers", Fox Butterfield, 1999, New York Times
    [131]: Article, "Guns and Violence", Garen Wintemute, 2000, Cambridge University Press
    [100]: "Youth Crime Interdiction Initiative", 1998, ATF

    I think all of that data is thrown out the window with the current increase of mass shootings. And yes, there is a current increase in these killings.

    If you read his statements, he did. So while I agree with your statement, it does nothing to further your argument.

    Even when several Professors of Criminology tell you otherwise, you stick with your view.

    You WANT there to be an increase in mass shootings.... you NEED there to be an increase in mass shootings.

    And how quickly you jump on the defensive at the mention that these mass shootings aren't as common proves this.

    its sad really.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    it makes me wonder if it isn't people who are like minded that are the ones committing these damned shootings........knowing they will be even more famous for being the rotten bastard that created the knee jerk reaction that caused the living to lose rights.

    You're not losing your silly gun rights. No one is taking them away from you. You can relax. There's needs to be more regulation, but that does not mean your rights are being trampled on.
