and then

You'd think the rest of the world would stay as far away from our shores as possible.  Funny how we're still the number one destination for hopeless people all over the planet.  I guess they don't wet their pants over danger the way certain members here seem to do.

My wife pulled up to our local Walmart yesterday to see SWAT storming the doors as shoppers flooded out.

Still short on details but looks like it was a hoax call. My wife asked what kind of person would do that and the only answer I could come up with was the exact same kind who would do an actual shooting. 

Point being we got ****ing issues here.

When you're dealing with war, famine or disaster, what's a few mass shootings?

I'm surprised that the US is the country most migrants want to go to (Canada is number three despite taking first place as the best country for immigrants). I suspect it's the image many have of the US... the American dream and all that. Our government has issued warnings to Canadians travelling to the US stating that mass shootings occur, but also notes that they account for a small percentage of homicides and that the chances of a tourist getting shot are slim.

You can thank the Hollywood that you hate so much for that.

Problem is anymore everything is counted as a mass shooting.

On December 4, 2015, Breitbart News reported that the left was claiming 355 mass shootings for that year. Mother Jones editor Mark Follman rebuffed the exaggerated claims by pointing out that the actual number was four. In other words, there were 351 fewer than the left claimed.

Funny you should bring that up, I read an article the other day related to what you are talking about.

Why Some Shootings Are Called Mass Shootings And Others Are Ignored

I think media is grasping at any kind of shooting to keep the gun debate going in the public.

Alabama and Louisiana have a higher murder rate from guns alone than Iraq or Russia have in total.
