    Oh look another one. Shrugging my shoulders and wondering where to direct my sympathy.

    230+ mass shootings in the US so far in 2019. Thats 230+ more than any other country on this planet. But heck, at least we get those thoughts and prayers from our great leader.

    It's always too soon to discuss gun control but it seems it's never too soon for the next mass shooting.

    Aside from the people who are directly effected, nobody gives a crap about what is happening. As soon as people hear gun reform, they get all defensive, like they are going to knock on their doors and demand their weapons.

    Just another day in the states.

    I’ve long run out of sympathy for these events in the states. No solutions are put forward apart from “thoughts and prays” from its government and ramblings of “more guns needed to stop these shootings” from NRA.

    One shoe bomber tried to blow up a plane and now we take off our shoes.

    1500+ mass shootings since Sandy Hook and counting and we are just left with thoughts and prayers.

    Goes to show you where the loyalty is in the USA!

    Dayton mayor said had the police not gotten there as soon as they did there could have been hundreds dead. We are being attacked from within. Very scary.

    The freedom to be gunned down at close range, at random. Woohoo! 'Murica!

    And sorry to burst your bubble, your precious "freedom" is not even in the top-50 globally.

    Yet another failed example of why criminal background checks are totally useless.

    Thanks for the laugh. They have Finland at #1 and their tax rate is 51%+. If you think giving up over half of what you earn by force (law) is freedom then thanks for letting us, well, laugh at that.

    Nobody wants to move to Finland and everyone seems to want to move here. In fact 2.5X more people moved into DFW from other countries than moved into the whole country of Finland in a 1 year period.

    So they tax more, and? The quality of life is much better in those countries.

    Dear gun nuts, what if it was your family member here? Do you think they want to die for your 2nd amendment ‘right’? Go ask them.

    HEY, more guns and body armor to counter the threat is the answer! But what if I get shot in the head? Do they have a 360 degree gun proof helmet? :rolleyes::oops::mad:

    As far as this gun thing goes I could not care less if they banned guns. I don't own one and never will. I personally think the citizens of this country are too stupid and too irresponsible to have our current gun laws. I also think hiding behind a 200+ year old document is ridiculous too. Things evolve and the constitution should evolve.

    False equivalence. Keeping ones constitutional rights is not what kills people.

    Year after year of senseless deaths due to lack of gun control/reform is what kills people. Having a President who inspires hate towards non-whites is what kills people. And so on.

    So the 24 that occurred during the Obama era were due to "Having a President who inspires hate towards non-whites is what kills people." Yeah that makes sense.
