A study in the Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery found that the gun murder rate in the U.S. is almost 20 times higher than the next 22 richest and most populous nations combined. Every one of those nations has stricter gun control laws.
And then there's this fact: add together all the gun deaths in the 23 wealthiest countries in the world and 80 percent of those are American deaths. Of all the children killed by guns in those nations, 87 percent are American kids.
Please don't tell me that if only the staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School were also armed that this would have ended well. It might have ended differently, but concealed weapons in the teachers lounge is not the way we want to raise our kids.
Jose Luis Nunez had a handgun in order to protect his son. The 4-year-old accidentally shot himself in the face with it in Houston on Tuesday. Joseph V. Loughrey had one for the same reason. His 7-year-old son Craig died on Saturday outside of Pittsburgh when that handgun accidentally went off while the boy was getting into his safety seat in front of a gun store.
And that was just this week. The same week that the NRA proudly tweeted it had reached 1.7 million "likes" on Facebook.
We cherish individuality in America. We see raising children as no one else's business, and we have never managed to band together as a "parenting" bloc. It is time. Guns are a parenting issue and we need to control them in the name of the children who died this morning. Even more, we need to do it in the name of their mothers and fathers.
So cry today. Comfort your kids. Curse, and pray. Then pick up the phone, a pen, a keyboard, or your checkbook and make your demands heard. All day and every day. But most especially today.

Pop quiz: how many of these mass shootings in the past several decades were carried out by black gunmen you retarded racist?
The number of mass killings contain smaller total deaths than individual ones collectively. Isolated Clusters vs Common Distribution.

You really do need to read the FBI Data website once in awhile to get up to speed on violent black crime. Do you know how to read graphs? Practice with a simple Pie Chart first, kid.

The Atlantic - The geography of U.S. Gun Violence: http://www.theatlanticcities.com/neighborhood...

"Race, unfortunately and tragically, factors into gun death at the metro level. The share of the population that is black is positively related to both the overall rate of gun death (.56) and even more so with gun-related homicides (.72). The pattern is similar for the share of the population that is comprised of young black males which is also positively related to the overall rate of gun death (.55) and murder by gun (.70). That said, we find no significant association between any type of gun death and the share of the population that is Hispanic."

Whites in general register their guns and try obeying the law. In doing so, statistics are easily collected to point to white "Gun Nuts". Urban Blacks, however, mainly don't register stolen or "hot" guns. This makes it hard to collect reliable data on black "Gun Nuts" except when the gun is used to knock off a 7 Eleven killing the single mom behind the counter Trayvon Martin style. The Liberal MSM plays on these disparate gun statistics constantly.

Huffington Post - NYPD Report Says 96 Percent Of Shooting Victims Are Black or Latino: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/06/nypd...

"The statistics, which cover crime in 2012 through the end of June, show that 96 percent of all shooting victims and 97 percent of all shooting suspects in the city were black or Latino."

As stated before; the guns are not the problem here in America (as they have been around for generation after generation w/o the frequency of these current atrocities). The last two or three generations have just had a much higher instance of drug-addled, molly-coddled wasteoids.

New info comng to light now that BOTH parents of the shooter were/are Hardline leftists/democrats, and that strings were pulled to avoid a judge labeling this criminal as deranged (and thus allowing him access to firearms). There are certainly laws already on the books that would have prohibited his gun ownership, yet it was bleeding heart liberals calling in favors that enabled this tragedy. More coming soon, you can bet on it...

Does that mean you are going to kill the "more anglo than negro" president Obama yourself? Should I call the secret service now? Or do you mean that the almighty & powerful 14% negro US population is going to rise up and kill the entire 70%+ anglo population? Again, hahaha; bring it, weakass.
Today's tragedy is coming home to roost right at the feet of leftist parents/judges/school officials. Nothing more, nothing less....
Allow me to "educate" you on genealogy, mon frere. Obama FATHER is Black. The Black GENE is Dominant! So he's more Black than anything else. This is why he moved to Chicago to be educated on what it means to be Black in America. White people (old ass white men specifically) never would have accepted him and he has enough sense to Know this. But he made a great move which allowed him to learn the truth about white folk from genuises like Reverend White, who whites still hate. Louis Farrakhan who you don't understand and fear, and it is also the reason he chose Michelle, a BLACK WOMAN (for those of you white women who think black men favor your pale asses.) Listen up... "The Truth" shall set you free, but you've got to first embrace it. Otay? lol

IN TWENTY YEARS, THEY'D BE RARER THAN HEN'S TEETH. THE FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEM IS NOT THE GUNS I'LL GRANT YOU. IT'S SIMPLY A REFLECTION OF AN INCREASING POPULATION DRIVEN TO COMPETE WITH EACH OTHER FOR SURVIVAL. WANT TO REDUCE GUN CRIMES? REDUCE THE POPULATION. STOP REWARDING "THE KILLER INSTINCT."

Sorry dipstick, that happened 8 hours ago when the leftist freaks starting blaming inanimate objects for this tragedy (ie "guns" for slow people like you). Its only now that the truth is starting to slowly emerge that we are able to place blame where it really belongs.

THOM JEFFERSON KEPT A 13 YEAR OLD SLAVE AND USED HER LIKE HIS PERSONAL COCK SOCK. COUNTLESS WOMEN HAVE BEEN LITERALLY BEATEN TO DEATH AND RAPED BY MEN WITH NO CONSEQUENCES, EXCEPT PERHAPS THE ARREST/EXILE OF THE WOMEN. THERE WAS MASS KILLING ON AN ASTOUNDING SCALE IN THIS COUNTRY SINCE ITS INCEPTION. WHAT OF THE NATIVE AMERICANS? COLUMBUS HIMSELF MURDERED AN ENTIRE RACE OF PEOPLE, 400,000 SOULS. MARINES TORTURED AND KILLED THOUSANDS IN THE PHILLIPINES AND CENTRAL AMERICA. WHAT ARE YOU SMOKIN'? THE GENERATION OF THE SIXTIES ENDED ANOTHER GENOCIDE WHICH UNNECESSARILY KILLED 3 MILLION PEOPLE. THEY ARE THE LAST AMERICAN GENERATION TO DO SOMETHING USEFUL WITH THEIR LIVES IN 50 YEARS. SO NOW WHAT'VE WE GOT? A PROFESSIONAL MILITARY THAT FOUGHT THE LONGEST "WARS" IN AMERICAN HISTORY, LOST THEM FABULOUSLY, AND IN DOING SO KILLED MORE PEOPLE THAN THE HANDFUL OF DICTATORS AND THEOCRATS HAD MURDERED TO INSPIRE OUR WRATH IN THE FIRST PLACE! ONE THING HAS CHANGED, HOWEVER: THE AVAILABILITY OF CHEAP, SEMI-AUTOMATIC WEAPONS DESIGNED TO DO NOTHING BUT DELIVER DEATH.
We're discussing a very specific malady, do you need a map? To offer a simple counterpoint, how many blacks have been lynched or native americans "genocided" since "cheap, semi-automatic weapons" became more accessible?

Let me also make another "distinction" between people of color and those who lack it... Being Black is more than skin tone, it's spiritual awareness, knowledge of good verses evil, lie verses truth. Being Black is a blessing that we hold to our hearts because we know what we know. All the lies white folk ever told about my people have been exposed. Why do you think every other nation on earth supported the President's re-election? I'll tell you why...because basic goodness and fairness is respected all around the globe. White folk for the majority, think their asses are better than every other race of mankind. How can they be so ignorant when the FIRST man was a Black man? Where in the hell do you think YOU came from? LOL silly ...silly..silly. Suggestion...research the origin of man and come back to the table and speak on something you know about.
