I will bet more banning of firearms and magazines will be happening soon


I copied from our local news station ( same channel one I posted earlier about the Dayton shooting )

    And the African American genocide - the black on black fratricide handgun apocalypse continues unabated in Chicago and Detroit and Philly and other dense urban enclaves...

    And nobody cares - the news media no longer bothers to cover it - Beto has not rushed to Chicago to offer his assistance - Barack is not visiting his library...

    Does not fit their narrative.

    Wait til someone uses gasoline in a crowded building, blocking the exits.

    Would be mass murder on a scale that we have not yet seen.

    They can limit guns, but there are other methods for the crazies to do their thing.

    I have said the very same thing repeatedly to those gun grabbers I encounter.

    What if he had a 5 gallon plastic gas can, taped a road flare to it, and threw it into the bar? Much higher causality list/numbers. Ban gas cans/road flares? Crickets.

    Extreme NE TN/W NC ya'll. 😁

    The problem is there is no clear criteria for what is deemed a mass shooting.

    Some sources set criteria where 4 people are killed.
    Others set the criteria were 4 people are shot in a single or close location.

    Rolled into some of these numbers are home invasions and burglaries of businesses. I do not think they should be included.

    My feeling is the criteria is where the only crime is the intended murder of the people in the location. No home invasion for robbery, no convenience store robberies or bank robberies. Nor should we count the criminal in the tally.

    Using the criteria of 4 or more shot regardless of any other criminal act (robbery, rape), there have been 248 in 2019 so far.

    Wonder how many have perished in vehicle crashes so far this year? I would venture to guess it's WAYYYYY more than 129, but I hear nobody screaming for the banning of motor vehicles. How many people have been killed with knives, blunt objects, and plain old fists so far in 2019?

    BTW,....there is no Constitutional right to own a motor vehicle.

    Drunk Driving By the Numbers

    If you ever have thought about drinking and driving, hopefully the statistics detailed below will make you think twice.

    In 2016, 10,497 people were killed in DUI crashes, and 290,000 were injured.
    Every day, approximately 800 people in the United States are injured in a drunk driving accident.
    Someone is injured in a drunk driving crash every two minutes.
    About 25% of car accidents with teenagers involve an underage drinking driver.
    In 2014, 16% of all drivers who were in fatal accidents during the week were intoxicated, compared to 29% on Friday and Saturday night.
    In the US, the number of DUI deaths has been cut by 50% since 1980, largely through driver education and public service announcements.
    57% of drivers who were fatally injured had alcohol or drugs in their system and 17% had both.
    Two out of three people on average in the US will be involved in a drunk driving accident in their lives.
    In 2014, 10 million Americans reported driving under the influence of illegal drugs in the last year.
    Americans drank too much and drove 121 million times in the last year. This is more than 300,000 incidents of drinking and driving each day.
    In fatal car accidents in 2014, the largest percentage of drunk drivers were those from 21 to 24, 30% of all accidents.
    Drunk driving in fatal accidents in 2014 was four times higher at night than during the day time - 34% vs. 9%.
    Drunk driving costs each American adult at least $500 per year.

    Below is an illustration of the number of DUI arrests in 2013 per 10,000 drivers in each state. States with the highest number of DUI arrests include Kentucky, North Dakota, South Dakota, Arizona and Colorado.

    Exactly Mark.
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain
