    its because of CT that the anti gun loons have come out of the clouds. IN reality, Obumble, Biden and their toadies were planning on trying to ban guns all along once Obumble won the election

    More Guns, More Mass Shootings—Coincidence?
    "America now has 300 million firearms, a barrage of NRA-backed gun laws—and record casualties from mass killers."

    "In the wake of the slaughters this summer at a Colorado movie theater and a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, we set out to track mass shootings in the United States over the last 30 years. We identified and analyzed 62 of them, and one striking pattern in the data is this: In not a single case was the killing stopped by a civilian using a gun. Moreover, we found that the rate of mass shootings has increased in recent years—at a time when America has been flooded with millions of additional firearms and a barrage of new laws has made it easier than ever to carry them in public. And in other recent rampages in which armed civilians attempted to intervene, they not only failed to stop the shooter but also were gravely wounded or killed."

    MOther Jones-complete crap and you know it. there was a lady in a church who fired on an active shooter and he was wounded and killed himself. Nice try, but MJ is full of fertilizer of the bovine kind. and Charles Whitman Jr was pinned down by citizens with telescoping rifles who allowed another Non LEO civilian and a texas ranger to get to the shooter and kill him

    Well, it is the stance that leftists take. Gun control and gun bans. So it wouldn't really be a big surprise. All politicians want to make their base happy after all, right?

    I'll give you an opportunity to prove your claim. Show me evidence of how many of the 67 mass shootings in the last 30 years where the shooter was taken out by civilian using a gun?

    why don't you explain why so many of those mass shootings were perpetrated in areas where the killers had a reasonable belief that there were no armed individuals present?

    So you Mother Earth had it right, thanks for your admission that you were wrong about any of the shooters being taken out by a civilian with a gun. Now you want to make another claim you have no evidence of? How about you post your evidence and then we'll take a look at it?

    We have a bigger population. More people... more shootings. Makes sense when you think about it. Is that the problem... the thinking?

    I'll give you an opportunity to prove your claim. Show me evidence of how many of the 67 mass shootings in the last 30 years where the shooter was taken out by civilian using a gun?
    That is the problem. The murderers went to areas known to have no guns... schools and such. Your argument would have merit if, and only if, you could disprove the cases where a rapist, home intruder or potential murderer was stopped by a gun owner. We know that there are MANY examples of that.

    Run your foolishness along already...
