So why aren't they killing the chinese and indians? Though not the majority of immigrants in America, they're far worse at overpopulating the earth.

well there's a lot wrong with it. Who uses more resources, an extended family of 10 living in a small apartment who all take public transportation vs. americans who have multiple cars, live in a giant suburban house, order from amazon and drink paper cup starbucks lattes constantly?

they are taking the panic that environmental groups use to raise money by misusing science and worst case scenarios and making it survival of zombpocalypse

The Dayton shooter was pro-gun control.

No outrage? Why is not Trump being blamed?
A spree of gun violence in Chicago this weekend left at least seven people dead and 46 injured. A series of shootings reached its peak Sunday morning, when 17 people were shot in three incidents in Chicago’s Lawndale neighborhood.

Because Chicago doesn't count. The city among those with the highest murder rate, yet toughest gun control laws certainly can't be considered in the discussion. Oh and, because black, that's why.

I'm in Ratimore (Baltimore) right now. I want to ask them what they think about what was said. I'm afraid it will be a in person Vo rant.

The ugly truth about gun violence in this country is that it's largely committed with handguns in high-density urban areas like Chicago and Baltimore. The spree killings with semi-automatic rifles grab the headlines because they're random - any one of us god-fearing blue-eyed devils could be a victim. We don't hear about the blood in Chicago's streets because it's business-as-usual: black gang members killing other black gang members.

You want to cut gun violence in half in this country? Get guns out of the hands of young black males. Easier said than done, but if people were serious about stopping gun violence, you'd think they'd work from the biggest problem down to the smallest, not the other way around.

Yep. That's a fact that no one wants to acknowledge (although Trump flat out said it in his campaign). The vast majority of murders via firearms are done in just a handful of cities (Chicago, Baltimore, LA, and New Orleans). But, as VD would put it, white america doesn't care about blacks youth killing other black youth.

It's the idea that you can be killed at the mall, movie theater, or night club that scares people, not the ghetto that you can simply avoid. But that's what defines the liberal stance on gun control. Irrational fear mongering. And in the end, they don't care about those they pretend to cater to, so long as they can make the Right out to be racists.

wherever one may stand on the gun control issue, the fact is that our government isn't set up to perform sweeping actions. parliamentary governments like UK or Australia can because one party has a lot more control than is ever possible in the US - even when Congress and the President are the same party. Its just almost 100% unlikely to happen here. Its not because politicians are evil or paid off by NRA - NRA is powerful but more because of their sheer numbers - its because of the 2nd amendment and the type of action that would be required is something our founding fathers sought to avoid.

That doesn't mean some things can't be done to prevent some of it, like addressing mental illness and economic factors that lead to criminal activity. It wouldn't prevent everything, some people will be terrible, but some of it could be addressed on a bipartisan level but no one wants to, because both sides right now raise a lot of cash off fear on both sides.

“You know what I noticed? Nobody panics when things go ‘according to plan.’ Even if the plan is horrifying. If tomorrow I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot or a truckload of soldiers will be blowing up, nobody panics because it's all part of the plan. But when I say that one little old mayor will die...well, then everyone loses their minds.”
