AP: 22 mass shootings. 374 dead. Here’s where the guns came from

It's a long list with explanations of each incident. (Well worth reading)
Almost none of these people would have been stopped by the lick-spittle 'restrictions' I see touted around the internet and media.


22 mass shootings. 374 dead. Here’s where the guns came from.

[apnews.com]

The suspects in the shootings at a Uvalde, Texas, elementary school and a Buffalo, New York, supermarket were both just 18, authorities say, when they bought the weapons used in the attacks — too young to legally purchase alcohol or cigarettes, but old enough to arm themselves with assault-style weapons.

They are just the latest suspected U.S. mass shooters whose ability to obtain guns has raised concerns. In some cases shooters got guns legally under current firearms laws, or because of background check lapses or law enforcement’s failure to heed warnings of concerning behavior.

for instance:

VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA: MAY 31, 2019. 12 DEAD.

Former Virginia Beach city employee DeWayne Craddock legally purchased six firearms in the three years before he opened fire on a municipal building, including the two .45-caliber pistols used in the attack. An independent review of the shooting, commissioned by the City of Virginia Beach, found that Craddock displayed no warning signs or “prohibited behaviors associated with a pathway to violence,” and that he had no known history of mental health treatment. Craddock was killed by police. ___

THOUSAND OAKS, CALIFORNIA: NOV. 7, 2018. 12 DEAD.

Ian David Long, a former Marine machine gunner who served in Afghanistan, used a legally purchased .45-caliber pistol with an extended magazine in the shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill. California tried to outlaw high-capacity magazines, but a federal judge reversed that after a pro-gun group sued. Months before the shooting, sheriff’s deputies called to Long’s home found him acting irrationally, but a mental health specialist didn’t feel he needed to be involuntarily committed. California has a red flag law, but there’s no indication authorities sought a court order to take away Long’s guns. Long killed himself.

and of course...

PITTSBURGH: OCT. 27, 2018. 11 DEAD.

Robert Gregory Bowers had a carry license and legally owned the Colt AR-15 SP1 and three Glock .357 handguns police said he used to kill worshipers at Tree of Life synagogue. Bowers spent months posting rants against Jews on Gab, a social media site favored by right-wing extremists. He also posted photos of his “glock family.” Just before the attack, he posted a screed against a Jewish organization that resettles refugees, saying: “I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I’m going in.” None of the rhetoric appeared to raise red flags. His case is pending. ___

That's pretty universal across the board for most laws.

It trickles down all the way to bad drivers getting away with whatever they want. If nobody ever gets in trouble, then why is there even a speed limit?

The automobile analogy is nonsense. Please stop trying to sell that here.

No, it's about when crime goes unchecked. I easily could have said shoplifting. I'll try to mix it up for you.

When your city says under 1K, we won't do a damn thing, even though iut is against the law, it sends out ripples effecting everyone.

Exactly, that's why law abiding drivers don't get tickets, are free to purchase 600 hp cars that can reach 200 mph. The car itself does not break the law

However, you are once again missing the main point, that guns are made for one purpose, to kill things.

(That's why they always show those army guys with them..)

I cannot believe that after all this time, we still have to put up with the insipid "Guns Don't Kill People, People Kill People" BS.

How about, “guns kill, people murder”?
