    1,052 mass shootings in 1,066 days: this is what America's gun crisis looks like

    Data compiled by the crowd-sourced website ShootingTracker.com reveals a shocking human toll: there is a mass shooting – defined as four or more people shot in one incident – nearly every day.

    Meanwhile, American conservatives are happier focusing on lesser crimes in Europe.

    Perhaps we're yawning because violence isn't a particularly "white conservative" problem as liberals so desperately try to claim.

    The gun violence is a serious problem in most older northern US cities, the very same places that were run into the sewer by decades of monolithic rule by the corrupt, incompetent donkey dorks and their loyal army of unionized public employees, Mafiosi, and welfare mothers. Go figure.

    Really? Or perhaps it's just that white conservatives (or in your case, white supremacists) are happier ignoring the problem and fixating on lesser problems 4000 miles away.

    Who owns guns in America? White men, mostly.
    Only 32 percent of Americans are white men. But white males make up 61 percent of gun owners.

    Funny ... when I was a kid I got toy guns to play cowboys and also a 007 toy gun set ... and I remember my parents telling me not to ever play with my toy guns outside because the cops might see me a mistake it for a real gun ... so I guess it is just part of our culter ... maybe in the future the problem will be light sabers ... or lasers icon_biggrin.gif

    I think I might still have my little brief case with a toy gun you can convert into a rifle, too

    That's because American conservatives by and large are white males who are the angriest scared sector of the demographic.And to add insult to injury,they have the smallest dicks. They have lots to attempt to compensate for- all to no avail.

    Who's hating? It is predominantly white conservative men on this site who are bleating about migrant-related crimes in Europe, while ignoring far worse gun-related crimes in their own back yard.

    . . . Let us not forget that Doctors kill people in far greater numbers than guns do !

    It is a ratio of about 80:1

    Why not BITCH about doctors for a change?

    There's nothing very clever about pointing out that mortality is 100%. We should aim to lower all preventable causes of death. I'm merely pointing out the hypocrisy of RJ's conservatives (and Trump trash) and their current fixation with the (non-lethal) activities of some migrants in Europe, while sidestepping far bigger problems (i.e. gun violence) in their own society.

    By the way, the article I quoted in my OP is from a British news source, so perhaps you and SB should address your narrow-minded "Brits are not entitled to an opinion" comments to them.

    The neo nazi is not the USA. The Republican Party alone is not the USA.

    So I don't view Mil8 at all as specifically bitching about the USA.

    While he is critical of our sometimes stretched out shortcomings, he seems motivated more by fascination with American culture which I find not just complimentary but telling of our strength.

    Exactly. I recently posted in another thread a list of some of the UK educational, cultural and news organizations that are devoted to the study and understanding of American politics and culture. It was quite a list.

    Maybe US White Conservatives are yawning because to them that's a loaded question - there IS no gun violence crisis from their viewpoint. It's another libtard exaggeration, like global warming.

    And there's no crisis to Conservatives & Right Wingers anyway because:

    1. They view gun victims as mostly being Blacks, whom they consider expendables in our society. If it's not Whites being killed off, then there's no crisis. In the minds of White Right Wingers, Black lives DON'T matter.

    2. This public perception of a crisis is nevertheless welcome to them, however. Because it fans NRA goals of univeral, unrestricted gun ownership, ostensibly for protection, more likely for male ego boosting and undersized penis compensation. And they seem to be achieving that goal. (Not the goal of making their dicks seem bigger, but of putting more guns in the hands of unsuitable people. I'm sure the gun manufacturers who heavily contribute to the NRA are delighted)

    I missed that but I don't doubt it. This is also why I posted in another thread that study done by a conservative think tank which shows the big differences between assimilation of immigrants here (North America, including Canada--hi Canada) where we do such a good job as opposed to Europe and elsewhere. Granted the influx there now but here we sort of have not just a history of it, but that is our history. This is not just the product of relocating for the spice trade of even the expansion phase of Great Britain.

    Where before in history has the world ever seen so many different cultures in such numbers come together to make up an America?

    Tag, we're it. We don't need no fuckin' Trump to make us great. In my eyes, America is great already. And we have way better foods than you. I mean, come on, haggis? Yikes!

    If someone tried to serve me that, I'd shoot'm.

    I don't recall having a 5-year-old son at present. But when I did, each of them was, in turn at 5, a hell of a lot smarter than you demonstrate here.

    No, you're fortunate neither of my sons is speaking for me. They would slice & dice you in about 10 seconds. Much smarter and more talented than me. You're getting off easy when you take on just slow me. icon_biggrin.gif

    Well, I'm not aware I have a 5-year-old grandson, either. Maybe southbeach, in fanatically researching me online as he's done before, knows something I don't.

    Again, it was Firebrand, bornonthe4th, etc. I don't remember all of his screen names, but the 25-27 yr old in Seattle named Rob who had the 58 Dodge in one of his profile pics.

    I'm waiting on a great grandson. If my grandson would only get to work on it, instead of wasting money on his little Honda rice boi cars.
