As long as T-Rump and McConnell are in power, as many as we can get. Until the mental health problem we have IN THE WHITE HOUSE AND SENATE is "taken care of", we must endure.

90% of America wants something done about assault weapons … minimize the damage that can be done BY a hate stimulated individual (mentally unhealthy condition, to be sure). A racist, a white supremacist, a right wing Brown Shirt, a right wing bigot …. ALL mentally ill …. and they ALL back the fascist in the White House, stimulated by Herr Miller. 90% of Americans have no say in the matter. T-Rump, Moscow Mitch, Herr Miller … the American Reichstag, is in control, we must VOTE them out, …. or die. ;-(

The hypocrite again spews his hatred towards the Party trying to protect millions if innocent unborn lives, while supporting a Democrat Party keeping the deaths of of viable babies legal.

His weapon of choice is not the so called assault rifle, but the forceps.

Until people learn to value life more than they do all their guns we'll be flying the flag half mast on a nearly monthly basis. Right now we can't do anything because the words "Gun control" means "gun banning" to the idiots out there that can't discern the difference.

If you could EVER listen to your own words, you might actually learn something.

You said... "Until people learn to value life more than they do all their guns we'll be flying the flag half mast on a nearly monthly basis."

Now I want you to replace that one word "guns" with the word "abortions".

You mindless hypocrites are so lost, you can't even grasp the inhumanity of the very thing that has cheapened innocent life.

You lost souls blame the weapon of choice rather than a culture creating these monsters.

How about answering the one simple question I repeatedly put forth.

Why is it a few decades ago, we hardly ever had these mass shootings of complete strangers with no connection to the killers, when we had many semi automated rifles with even fewer restrictions.

ANSWER THAT QUESTION, and you might get down to the core problem.

IT'S OUR CULTURE, NOT THE WEAPON OF CHOICE!

Start addressing the core reason because you could ban all the guns in the world, and these monsters would use trucks!

Ah so until we address the matter of you wanting to remove the rights of bodily autonomy for women, we can't ever talk about anything else including the nearly monthly mass murders by a shooter? Gotcha. So when are you going to be concerned for the children and adult children who are murdered by a psycho wielding an automatic or semi-automatic? I'm just curious so I can pencil that in my calendar. Unless of course you are only concerned with those in the womb and don't give a damn about those out of it.

The answer is: As many mass shootings as there will be before we get rid of His Cowardly Majesty (Who is a large part of the mental illness problem we have in our country! :-) AND the Duke of Kentucky, Moscow Mitch, who is working JUST as hard to sell America to Putin.

Thousands.

Think about why mass shootings rate a news story or debate topic, but traffic deaths don't.

Even if we do not limit the topic to mass shootings, but include all gun homicides in the US, the number of victims is still fewer than a third of those killed by auto accidents. That means that the word mass in mass shootings is irrelevant. If how many people die was the important part, we would be MUCH more concerned about access to cars than to guns.

When I look at the evidence, it seems to me that most of us care very little about other people dying, and we do not seem to care at all about complete strangers dying. It does not matter if they are shot by a gun or launched through a windshield; if we do not know them, we are mostly unbothered.

Sure, a lot of people have been convinced they are more virtuous if they care that somebody died, so they pretend that mass shootings matter to them, but if the deaths were really a problem for them, they would be just as vocal about more common causes of death.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson made a cogent point: "Often our emotions respond more to spectacle than to data." (Twitter, August 4, 2019 )

Even if we actually cared, nobody has actually come forward with a viable plan for preventing murder. The best they can ever do is propose methods to change how people kill each other.

Never mind that murder is already illegal, the important think is how people do it.

Think about why mass shootings rate a news story or debate topic, but traffic deaths don't.

Well, let's start with the fact that most gun deaths are realistically preventable, whereas most traffic deaths are not. Then let's toss in the fact that you're a moron who thinks gun deaths are part of a national news conspiracy and should therefore be permitted to continue for that reason.

This is a mental health problem, not a gun problem.

You got that right. People like you are MENTALLY ILL. You see the results of what guns have done to your country and out of sheer BULLHEADED STUPIDITY you blame everything EXCEPT the guns.

Ironically though, disingenuous idiots like yourself have the PRECISE OPPOSITE OPINION when asked about Islamic terrorism. In that case, Islam is the problem, not mental health.

Your double standards are stupid and there is a complete absence of reason in every position you take on every subject known to man.
