10 Killed and 13 Injured – May 18, 2018Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, allegedly walks into an art class and begins firing, killing 8 students and 2 teachers at Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, Texas. Pagourtzis is arrested and charged with capital murder and aggravated assault of a public servant.

  1. Those are bullshit statistics. No verifiable proof that most even took place.

    • The opposite is true. Each shooting is fully documented with all the names of those involved. Fully linked to the location, police, news reports, etc.

      I’m not sure why you made that statement since I put the link right there in the article.

      I myself looked over several of the reports and crosslinks. They have done a fantastic job of providing far more information than even the police do.

        I don’t have a bias since I don’t have a position on guns. It seems to me that you are making blanket statements before reviewing the information they provide.

      • It’s. Bullshit argument to blame the gun and not the person. Simply the title alone makes it the guns fault.

        What about the cities, municipalities and states where those guns are already outlawed, they make no mention of how ineffective their laws already are. So they create the title “mass shootings” and “gun violence” to distract from what is actually taking place.

        Never underestimate the desire for power and the drive to enslave the masses.

        The Terrorist activities in Paris on Friday, 13 November are proof of that. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/November_2015_Paris_attacks

        If we disarm and become like Europe or any other docile people, we too will be under the gun of a tyrant.

        In the words of Mao, “Every Communist must grasp the truth, “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” Our principle is that the Party commands the gun, and the gun must never be allowed to command the Party”.

        Trends in people do not exist. I know we’ve talked about this before, but human behavior cannot be predicted exactly.

        They want to disarm the public, they want to do away with the 2A. The way they do this is to convince everyone that they are safer without guns.

        Another note is that “Shootings” or “mass shootings” are also not categorized for when police are the ones doing the shooting or when people defend themselves with a gun.

        It’s all propaganda Lander, meant to deceive and confuse.

        They know they cannot simply do a gun grab. So instead they spread propaganda to convince people to give up their own rights.
