    The data is reflecting trends over a long period of time. Looking at a months worth of data and trying to use it refute the long term trend is absurd.

    Short Term....... Yes, shootings are on the rise...

    In fact....

    Between When Bush Took Office and when he left.... over a 8 year span..... We had 10 what are considered "Mass Shootings" totaling in 95 deaths.

    In the mere 4 years that Obama has been in Office...... a 4 year span....... We have had 17 "Mass Shootings" totaling in 139 deaths. Including 9 just this year alone.

    Im sorry if I sound like a conspiracy nut, but I find it convenient that the gun control party gets in office and mass shootings increase in frequency. ESPECIALLY considering most of the mass shootings that occurred during Bush's presidency occurred after the 2006 mid term elections where the Democrats took the House.

    I know.... sound the conspiracy theory nut music.... I think I've gone mad but I can't quite shake this notion.

    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.

    For the record... there should not be mass shootings at all.
    Shouldn't be lots of things at all. But humans being human, it ain't a perfect world.

    But if even one of these horrors can be prevented by education and regulation then it will be worth the effort. Don't you agree?

    Once again, someone looks at the link and doesn't bother to go any farther.

    The whole damned story is the AP piece.

    If the regulation involves curtailing the rights of the people to keep and bear arms... then no.

    Educate all you wish.

    christ! the paranoia of some people.
    Do you support voter ID laws? I mean, the right to vote isn't being infringed in those cases, it's only being appropriately regulated.

    Do you support 6 hour waits at the polls? That is what being " appropriately regulated" seems to have really meant. Voter suppression.

    What is wrong with 6 hour waits at the polls?

    Why is that unacceptable when 72 hour waits on buying a firearm is not?
