Wow.  in the U.S. on any given day there is an average of 27 gun related deaths (omitting suicide).

you want me to get worked up over 4?  the truth is that gun fatalities are dropping in the U.S. on average.

Sorry.  this story really deserves no more attention than the other 20+ deaths that will happen today due to guns.

All statistics for you, I see. No attention? Really? The media outlets don't see it that way.

It doesn't bother you, huh Bud? Just business as usual. I wonder if it was your loved one who was harmed or killed by a semi-automatic weapon, would that get your attention?

Would it matter if 20 US troops were shot in Afghanistan instead?

11 US soldiers were killed every day in Vietnam.

How come that is enough for the US population to apply pressure to end deployments and shy away from finishing what they started, but 9,000 gun homicides a year is not enough to apply pressure to end gun ownership? (That does no include accidental shootings and suicides).

BTW, it's not falling any more.

4 people is not a mass shooting.

4 people dead is not a mass shooting. We have higher standards than that.

1. A gun without ammo is just a hammer.

2. A loaded gun without someone to pull the trigger is just a paper weight.

That would get world wide attention - a semi-automatic weapon, ALL ON "IT'S" OWN, when out and killed loved ones.......now THAT would be a story. I mean the side stories, like how it loaded a magazine and inserted it into "it's" self, how it got it's hands on the ammo, etc., would be interesting reading.

Does a gun have to pass a background check in order to buy it's self?  Where does a gun get money?  How does a gun travel?  How does a gun know what it's aiming at?  How does a gun keep it's balance when aiming high enough to fire a fatal shot? .....or would it only shoot people that are laying on the ground?  Ground sleeping campers would seem to be at high risk.............OH MY GOD think of the all the beach goers on any given summers day!!!!!  Oh the humanity!!!!!

How come that is enough for the US population to apply pressure to end deployments and shy away from finishing what they started, but 9,000 gun homicides a year is not enough to apply pressure to end gun ownership? (That does no include accidental shootings and suicides).

BTW, it's not falling any more.

Deaths due to war in foreign lands rarely sets well with the U.S. population especially when there is no end plan.... such as in vietnam.  or no clear objective such as Afghanistan.

as for those 9000 homicides... a vast majority or criminal on criminal.

In the end, it is proven pretty clearly that it isn't the guns that is the issue, it is guns in the wrong hands that is the issue.    Have the trigger finger of anyone possessing an illegal firearm removed.  If caught with a fire arm again, have the nuts removed (lowers the testosterone and the propensity to act stupidly).

You have no shame at all to take cheap shots without even thinking the families who lost their loved ones.
