In 2015 alone there were 372 mass shootings in the United States. That (mass shootings, where 4 or more people involved) is just a fraction of all the gun related shootings in 2015. If you think the headlines are dizzying, you should look up the actual stats on even just gun related injuries and deaths for that year (or any year). Sick as that’ll make you, then remember that there are actually morons who oppose any sort of gun regulation (strangely, they keep hearing “confiscation”). Keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally infirm threatens them, they take it verrry very personally (-and that speaks for itself).
