I just find it strangely, even conspiracy theory-ish that the gun control party gains power in 2006 (legislature) and an increase in mass shootings starts then. Most of the mass shootings under Bush happened after 2006.
He didn't do anything differently that I am aware of, its just a weird coincidence.
Europe is in the midst of disaster, only, they do not realize.
Just like you guys try to break up the nation along ethnic and economic lines you are now trying to divide us along the lines of those who support liberty and those who support stateism.
By the way, every single state out there that provides a state level ID for a required purpose (such as voting) does so at no charge to the individual.
Mother Jones tracked 62 instances of mass killings from 1982 to 2012 (current). That averages out to approx 2 per year. yes...there has been a healthy increase this last year but on average, the incidents have managed to stay pretty consistent.

I wonder if this all really shocks anyone. I know there are no direct causative links to media and violence but really...video games depict airport shootings, mall shootings, random acts of violence for no good reason, we see it in movies, and TV shows and on the news. Can anyone REALLY be shocked when people are constantly exposed to violence as an option? Im not even suggesting things should be censored...just wondering if anyone is really surprised.
You cant charge people to vote.
It's a bit dated (2008) but it shows that you have to pay for state IDs: http://www.thepiratescove.us/2008/04...state-id-cost/
and voter fraud is few and far between. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/12/wa...anted=all&_r=0
