Guns have been prevelant in the U.S. for roughly 240 years.
Violent video games have been prevelant for about 20-25 years.
Mass killings of this type have been on the rise for 20-25 years........
Doesn’t take a reject from NASA to break that code.
Why is THIS not the point driven home at every opportunity?
Every time a crime is committed with a gun, liberals try to take them away from people who responsibly own and use them.
When drunk driving was such an epidemic 25 odd years ago, I don’t recall the liberal hordes demanding banning the automobile. We simply increased the penalties and enforced the laws.
Actually Mass killings are on the decline. The 2000’s have seen a 50 % decrease from the 90’s. Mass killings rose from the 60’s through the 90’s (where they peaked). It is simply the media and the agenda which make it seem as if we are facing an epidemic. We are not.
While every innocent life lost is a tragedy, the truth is we have about 12,000 gun deaths per year, 80 % of which are gang related (criminals breaking the law killing other criminals.) So the true number of gun deaths per year is really about 2400. Hardly an epidemic. Definitely not worth shredding the Bill of Rights and rendering a hundred million law abiding people defenseless.
