For everyone out there scrambling to feign virtue and demand that guns be outlawed, do any of you know what the term “mass shooting” actually means?
Well, believe it or not, but there is no standard definition for “mass shooting”! How can that be you ask? Well the quick and dirty of it is that the term “mass shooting” is really a play on words, a way to dramatize the term “mass murder” or “mass killing”.
Some say it is when 3 or more people are shot in close proximity and within a short period of time, there is no standard for injuries or death, some would refer to this also as assault or man slaughter.
The term “mass shooting” is a political term used to incite fear and push political agendas, plain and simple.
If we’re going to discuss something, let’s understand what we are attempting to discuss, rather than simply use buzzwords and keywords to appear relevant.
So, I look forward to your comments and counters. Just keep this in mind for contrast, how many people were killed by cops this year? How many people were killed during military operations this year? How many people were killed due to medical malpractice this year? How many people were killed driving to work this year? How many people were killed by food poisoning this year? How many people were killed by choking on food this year? How many people were stabbed or beaten to death this year?
You see, people die, it’s those of us who remain, who are the ones that deal with the loss. Death is part of life and no amount of legislation will ever stop murder or mayhem.
Oh, and the U.S. is probably one of the safest nations in the entire world. If the U.S. was really as bad as all of the politicians and everyone else likes to say, then I hardly doubt that millions of illegals would be trying to get in.
