Below are the photos of all mass shooters so far in 2019.  Mass shooter is defined as more than four victims in any one shooting.  Disclaimer:  I don't know if the source (Mass Shooting Tracker) is reliable or not but they are a gun control advocacy group so you can decide for yourself is this information is reliable or not.

What makes the picture interesting to you?

That there is not 1 picture of an "assault rifle", AR-15 or AK -   just a bunch of damn people.

I am surprised at the apparent ethnicity of the accused perps.

So they could consider the 14 year old here in Alabama that shot and killed 4 of his family members with a 9MM handgun, a "mass shooter"?  

I like Phi's observation!  Not a single gun pictured, so even they admit that the guns aren't doing the shootings, it is people.

For me it was the number of deaths that meets the definition of mass shootings, the number of shooters that meet this definition and the diverse ethnicity of the shooters when compared to the govt media coverage (which would lead one to believe that all mass shooting perps are white racists).  I believe that the term mass shooting applied to four deaths is kind of crazy but it is what it is.

You can be sure that the vast majority of these "mass" shootings were not done with an AR-15.  Most were probably handguns with a smattering of other types.  As I explain to the ignoramuses on a regular basis, a handgun with a 10 round clip can do as much damage as an AR-15 with a 10-round clip......just doesn't look as scary I guess.

I figured the way the MSM media reports it - it should be around 60% AR's, 30% AKs 10% assorted other military grade weapons of 4+ destruction.

 

I was shocked to see a page full of people of assorted shades and at least one drawing, to imagine a drawing shooting anyone.

Dont lock them in the gun safe.... That could get really bad.

 

And make sure to seperate the pens from the brushes and store the paints/inks somewhere else.  You never know what those supplies can get up to when together.

Here's the ironic part of his blatantly obvious question.  He apparently noticed the same thing we did about the racial makeup of the mass shooters and was naively trying to bait us with the question.  You would have to be a complete moron not to notice the discrepency between that aspect of the photos and the media coverage which would lead one to believe that all mass shooters are white men.  I would very much like to see a poll on that question.  Might differ between parties but if I were a betting man I would guess that well over 75% of liberals would say white men as would a large percentage of conservatives.  Much of that can be attributed to the media coverage but I suspect a lot of people would also be surprised at this group's definition of mass shooter.  Using the term "mass" with the number 4 seems silly to me.  

I also think this group did not consider the unintended consequences of pointing out that 10%-15% of the population is responsible for 75% of mass shootings in the U.S.  I would also be willing to bet that the vast majority of those mass shootings by African Americans were with handguns that were obtained illegally although I haven't seen that kind of analysis.  Finally, I would be willing to bet the ranch that not one of them voted for Trump.  Kind of screws up the narrative doesn't it?

So now john doe will label you as a racist, in spite of the fact that you are doing nothning more than pointing out the obvious.

jd has his marching orders.  Russia collusion failed spectacularly.  Obstruction never happened. Tax returns were a bust.  Turns out Epstein was also a dead end.  So it is back to the Democrat party handbook where it states the following.  "If all else fails call them a racist.  At least that will keep the minority vote." 

So dull and intellectually stunted but what can you expect from a group of people that believe progressive ideas work.  If they believe that they can be prodded into saying just about anything.  So march on jd......as for me, I am not listening.

Thanks for the explanation as to why you found it interesting. More blacks than whites...you could have simply pointed that out when you posted it for those of us who are color blind.

What you are really saying is...Blacks shoot each other and Whites shoot strangers.

Funny I did not see a graph of people who were shot, their skin color or even mention of the skin color of who was shot.

 

Glad to see you dancing around the obvious point to attempt to call someone else a racist.

I would remind you that there were three things I found interesting.  That you fixated on one is your problem, not mine.  As to your last comment, that is not even remotely what I am saying because I have no idea the race that these "mass" shooters killed nor do I care.  Unlike leftists I value every human life regardless of ethnicity, gender or any other intersectional category you want to use. 

You thought you were being clever Goofy, but all you did was highlight your own biases and fixations with your blatantly obvious loaded question.

Guns don't kill people! However, people with guns do kill people.  If those people didn't have guns they would be much less likely to kill. Yeah yeah I know, bad people who want a gun will get one...just like the Odessa/Midland nut who couldn't pass the background check so he used the gunshow loophole and bought a gun without the check!  The same loophole that sensible members of both parties along with 90% of the people want closed!

Where do the thugs in Chicago get the guns that shoot dozens of citizens in Chicago and kill 10 or more every week?  Did they go to a gun show in Chicago? As I type this I can’t help but realize how silly this very question is.

You use, falsely, the term "gun lovers".  That is BS.  We own guns for several reasons....hunting....self protection...but to say we are "gun lovers" is a crock.  For danm sure I own guns as a way to protect myself and my family.  Do I love guns, he!! no.  I wish I didn't feel the need to own and carry them but because of the tenuous nature of "the peace" I refuse to lose because I wasn't prepared.  That applies to when we are out and about (concealed carry) and were our domicile to be invaded (Castle Doctrine).

I wish I didn't feel the need to protect myself and my family this way but I do and have taken measures to ensure I can.  Call me a "gun lover" if you like but if you do you will be as wrong as you have been so many other times on this forum.

Can you not understand that persons who plan to kill someone(regardless of the reason) will obtain a gun or whatever weapon they choose to carry out their plan. If it's a gun they choose and they can't obtain it legally, they will resort to other means such as buying one from a friend, robbing a gun store, breaking into a residence, etc. Once a person has become "obsessed" to kill someone, they will go to whatever extreme necessary to obtain a weapon to commit murder.

Where do Chicago thugs get their guns?  I'm sure a many steal them but I'm just as sure many of them buy them ILLEGALLY from other thugs that originally purchased them LEGALLY in places like Alabama, Georgia, Texas and North Carolina!  Sad part is you know it too but don't give a rats azz.

most of the killers in the news lately bought their murder weapons legally.  Yes, once a person is resolved to kill he or she will find a way and we make it simple.  It is so easy to get a gun legally in this country the thugs usually don't need to hold up a gun store!  They just loiter around the parking lot at a gunshow with money in their pocket.

So a criminal who is going to steal a gun, or buy a stolen gun is going to go for a background check? or is he going to ignore that law too?

 

If only we could just make being a criminal illegal that could solve it all,  also a law to stop people from killing each other, drinking and driving.... wow what a world we could live in if we could just make harmful things illegal.... oh wait...

Can you point to the statistic of the last 20 years where someone who went on a mass killing spree (4+) actually loitered around outside a gunshow with cash to purchase the weapon they used?

 

Sorry, but the more you type the more I need hip waders because the BS is getting DEEP.

Criminals who sell guns are probably salivating over all these attempts to limit gun ownership — after all, the more gun ownership is limited, the more money they will make.  No one has mentioned that illegal gun buyers are many times looking to obtain guns which cannot be traced to them, so going to an illegal source is key for them.  Gun control is a farce, or would be if we weren’t talking about life and death.
