    The wife of the attacker is among those killed in the shooting rampage and authorities believe jealousy to be the motive. A gunman has shot five people dead and injured at least another 20 in a cafe in Serbia, police have said. Among those killed was the wife of the attacker. The man "entered the cafe and opened fire with an automatic rifle" in the town of Zitiste, around 50 miles north of the capital Belgrade, according to police. A man has been arrested and an investigation has been launched.

    Image from strange politics There are two reasons why mass killings have increased during the Obama regime.  They have increased because the regime gives those killers what they want.  The cartoon illustrates these reasons. These killings are rare.  They do not happen often.  There have been a cluster of them during President Obama's terms in office.  There are good reasons for that. There are two types of mass killing that have occurred.  The first is the rampage killer.  These are accomplished by socially isolated mental cases, who hope to obtain a sort of immortality by killing as many people as...

    Four people were killed and 14 others injured in a Thursday afternoon rampage through a rural Kansas county that ended with the death of the gunman at police hands. The gunman, identified by several Wichita news outlets as Cedric Ford, was a disgruntled worker at Excel Industries in Hesston, which suffered all the fatalities. Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton told reporters late in the evening that the gunman killed three Excel workers people before the first officer called to the scene shot him dead. Sheriff Walton said the gunman fired at people from his truck in nearby Newton streets and...

    Public shootings have become a familiar American spectacle in recent years, and two more occurred in recent weeks. The details are still unfolding, but so far these episodes seem to fit the general pattern. At Los Angeles International Airport, a young man entered a public area and started firing. Three days later, in the midst of intense media coverage of the first event, another young man did the same at a shopping mall in suburban New Jersey. One penned a note beforehand about his actions, the other a manifesto. Only the L.A. shooter appears to have meant to kill others,...

    Link to video of start of shooting In Conyers, Georgia, a citizen, openly carrying a holstered pistol, returned fire at a man who had already killed two people.   The attack appears to be a planned mass shooting.   The attacker was armed with a semiautomatic pistol, which he is seen firing in the video.  When the open carrier, Todd Scott, returned fire, the active shooter stopped the attack, and fled the store.  He returned to the home where he lived with his parents, and shot and wounded them both.   At this point the police arrived at the...
  • Gun Control Advocates & Liberal Media Bias Evident in Coverage of Mass Shootings

    When you look at recent mass shootings that have occurred recently there is one specific incident that is very rarely if ever mentioned by the liberal media and Gun Control advocates. The Ft. Hood Shooting is never cited or discussed or even mentioned by the Anti's and Gun grabbers like Bloomberg, Schumer, Boxer, Feinstein, McCarthy or Cuomo. They only cite the Tucson, Aurora and Sandy Hook events as reason to restrict law abiding citizens their rights. WHY? One must make a few assumptions to uncover why they rarely if ever cite the Ft. Hood mass shooting in their quest to...

  • Trends In Mass Shootings

    The trend will be your friend if you are the NRA, Hollywood,or video game manufacturers trying to deflect blame for rising gun violence in America. Per both mass killing expert Alan Fox, there is no particular evidece suggesting we are in the grip of a rising wave of mass shootings. A Mother Jones team has put together their own database of mass shootings since 1980 (timeline) and their chart suggests a similar conclusion. And for the factually oriented, this paper by criminologist Duwe from 2006 (hat tip to Jesse Walker of Reason) is fascinating. The media loves a narrative, which...
  • Opinion: The Rise and Decline of Mass Shootings

    (March 1) -- When it comes to mass public shootings, the decade doesn't seem to be starting out too well. Just two months in and already there was a shooting rampage in rural Virginia (which claimed eight lives), one at the University of Alabama (three dead) and other in Denver, near Columbine High School, in which two middle school students were injured. But the fact is that, while mass public shootings always tend to galvanize massive media coverage, they are becoming increasingly less common, falling sharply in the last decade compared with the previous two. And understanding this decline is...

    Grant Duwe, a criminologist with the Minnesota Department of Corrections who has written a history of mass murders in America, said that while mass shootings rose between the 1960s and the 1990s, they actually dropped in the 2000s. And mass killings actually reached their peak in 1929, according to his data. He estimates that there were 32 in the 1980s, 42 in the 1990s and 26 in the first decade of the century.
  • FBI Probes "Killing Spree" Facebook Threat (Colorado. Columbine imitator?)

    SEPTEMBER 7--Alarmed by Facebook posts promoting a “Killing Spree” this month in Littleton, Colorado--home to Columbine High School--FBI agents last week raided a residence allegedly connected to the online threats and seized several guns and “eight books and notebook involving killing,” court records show. Law enforcement officials learned of the Facebook posts after a tipster contacted police in Littleton to report a variety of disturbing images and messages on a Facebook page in the name “Eric Rebdomine.” One of the Columbine killers, Eric Harris, used the online alias “Rebdomine.” Investigators discovered that the “Rebdomine” account had created a Facebook “event”...
