Not even close LOL... took 5 mins to look up.

42,114 Died in 2020 from slipping and falling. You're looking at the average from all years of data on slipping and falling. compared to the total of one year of gun violence. Which half of those numbers are suicide.

I should have included that I personally don't think suicide is gun violence. My original comment was lacking. The joke I was trying to make is that you're more likely to die from falling than be shot by someone with a gun in the USA.

Shooting yourself in the head is a violent act is it not?

Well if we factor in “ Rule #2. Double Tap” then the numbers seem about right….

Re: USA - Raleigh, North Carolina Shooter Kills Five

Austin Thompson is a teenage murdering psychopath. I don't scare whatever reasons he may or may not have had to do these things, or that he was 15, I don't give a fuck. Frankly he needs to die and go to fucking hell. It's just a shame he didn't die from his injuries and is now recovering. Families of victims shouldn't have to sit through a trial and look at all those horrific crime scene photos, just so he can get off the hook like Cruz, it's bullshit. His parents are like we had no idea, all this didn't come from nowhere, have some respect for your son that was murdered, fess up to what you know and just go straight to hell with your monster spawn Austin:2gunsfiring _v1:

Calm down. You've been affected emotionally by the details of the case, which is completely natural, but allowing oneself to be governed by one's emotions is the reason things like this happen in the first place.

Would you feel the same had one of those female victims had been your mother, I think not. If you say yes you're not being honest with yourself.

It is perfectly possible to say yes to your question and STILL be honest to myself. Yes, I would be outraged, but no, I would not seek the death penalty.

If the man is convicted, sentenced, and eventually executed, then subsequently found innocent of all charges, how would I live that down? Don't tell me that can't happen because it HAS happened, MANY times, and THAT is what's wrong with letting yourself be guided by your emotions. You do things you might later regret, and if our government acts in the same mercurial fashion then what separates US from the people who commit these kinds of crimes?

To a person, all of these mass shooters have let themselves be governed by their emotions and caprices, not by rational thought.
