    Really?
    When was the last mass shooting that happened in a school where there was a concentration of people with guns.

    The presence of guns does not deter mass shootings
    Then explain why there has eve rbeen a mass shooting at a gun show or th National Matches.

    There were ARMED school resource officers in most of the school shootings in the past 10 years. The exception was the shooting at the Amish school in Pennsylvania.

    Are you f'ing kidding me?

    And here I thought it was because liberals weren't in charge there.

    Never once have I heard that. Show it to be true.

    No. If the reason the has not been a mass shooting at a gun show or the national matches is NOT because of the presence of all those people with guns, then what is it?

    Because that is where the target the mass killers are after are least likely to be. Places with large concentrations of people very day are going to be more likely to have the targets of a crazed gunman that occasional events, and you can be more confident all your targets are there.

    How can you possibly know that?
    ANYONE can be a target for a kook looking to shoot a group of people -- there's no way you can argue that these people are LEAST likely to be at a gun show or rifle match.

    For you to know that, you'd have to know that the targets of these people don't frequent gun shows or shoot at th enational matches - and you;d have to know this in a specific, not general sense.

    10 years post-Columbine, a new education landscape : Schools : Boulder Daily Camera

    Many of today's high school students, who were in their first years of school when the shootings happened April 20, 1999, hardly recall a time without video cameras mounted outside and police cars parked on school grounds. Security is just part of going to class, said Gigi Mesch, a sophomore at Boulder's Fairview High School who was in first grade when Harris and Klebold open fire in Columbine.

    No. If the reason the has not been a mass shooting at a gun show or the national matches is NOT because of the presence of all those people with guns, then what is it?
    Mass shooters tend to target specific populations and/or victims. They are motivated by feelings of shame, rage, and isolation. The killings are both personal and impersonal. The killings are targeted to locations and specific victims.

    A mass murderer MIGHT at some point target a gun show, but it would be to kill a certain group of emotionally-associated people. Whether they were armed or not would not deter the personality type that commits these crimes.

    OK, this is a little disingenous -- "cannot hardly recall a time without video cameras mounted outside and police cars parked on school grounds" is hardly proof of a continued, obvious armed presence.

    Mass shooters tend to target specific populations and/or victims. They are motivated by feelings of shame, rage, and isolation. The killings are both personal and impersonal. The killings are targeted to locations and specific victims.
    Yes... and so, why dont these killers some after people at rifle matches?
    Because people who to a gun shows and rifle matches dont piss people off?
