    The pair had driven up from Texas and rented a motel room in Tewksbury for two weeks when Bradley called police on March 24 — the day of the march — saying the video feed he had set up in his room had been disrupted and he was worried someone had broken into his room, according to police reports. When police arrived at the room, they reported finding an arsenal — in addition to the AR-15 coupled with a grenade launcher, weapons strewn about the room included an AK-47, two other semiautomatic rifles, a shotgun, two pistols and three smoke grenades classified as “infernal devices” under state law, along with tactical vests and hundreds of rounds of ammunition

    HORNTON, Colo. -- Vicki Key is never more than a few feet away from her daughter, also named Vicki. Daughter Vicki’s fiance was killed Tuesday night in the 4600 block of 106th Drive in Thornton. The family said the shooting happened over a dispute over their dog Bruno.

    Vicki Key said Bruno was trying to get over the back fence, as he has done before, when Schmidt grabbed him and brought the 2-year-old dog back over. She said he disciplined Bruno in the process. Vicki Key said the 32-year-old suspect, Michael Sadeghi, then just “snapped.” He started yelling at Schmidt for swatting the dog. Key said Sadeghi pulled out a gun and fired, hitting Schmidt in the back of the head as he walked away.

    These stories are just the tip of the iceberg.
    What is your point? Should we start posting the incidents of death by auto? Or death by opioid? How about death by tobacco? How about death by pesticides? How about death from stupidity? No one ever reads about those stories.

    I think the point is pretty clear. If you would like to start a thread on the other things you mentioned - please feel free to to so.

    Morris was assigned to take photos of Brooks’ home in Winston in Douglas County, the suit says. He went to the house on the morning of Jan. 31 and unlocked the front door using a key from a lock box, to which he was given a code.When Morris opened the door, a security alarm went off, the suit says. Morris checked the lock box for a security code, but didn’t find one. Brooks, who was in a back bedroom in the home when the alarm sounded, got a gun and shot through the bedroom wall or door striking Morris, the suit says

    DUQUESNE, Pa. - While responding to a call for a gunshot victim, Duquesne’s fire chief received the worst shock of his life: his son was the victim.Frank Cobb said he knew his 15-year-old son had been in some trouble. He ran away from home and Cobb says he’d been searching for him for a few months. But he never imagined he’d find his son the way he did. “Dancing around with his friends, put his finger on the trigger, and accidentally pulled it. Shot himself,” Cobb said.

    "The Darwin Awards" would be a more apt title for this thread.

    I see just a bunch of dumbasses with guns. Haven't you already figured it all out by now?

    Where you do get the idea that all the people mentioned in the articles are "dumbasses"??? After all there have already been 14,201 incidents this year, with 3, 646 deaths.

    Are you trying to play down the gun violence by everyday day people who own guns?

    Somehow you don't think it's important to know that these cases kill/injure more people per year than Mass Shootings?

    Gun Violence Archive

    I'm going to keep reporting these shootings. Not matter how many attempts to "minimize" people dying by guns every day.

    If we look at firearm homicides per 100.000 people, California isn't that bad at all. The homicide rates in lots of states are higher, including (and in order from worst to least bad)

    Location Homicide Death Rate Deaths
    Louisiana.......... 11.7.......... 538
    Mississippi .......... 11.4 .......... 332
    Alabama .......... 8.1 .......... 374
    Arkansas .......... 7.7 .......... 217
    South Carolina .......... 7.6.......... 363
    Missouri.......... 7.5 .......... 441
    New Mexico.......... 6.8 .......... 135
    Maryland.......... 6.7.......... 387
    Delaware .......... 6.6 .......... 57
    Georgia .......... 6.6 .......... 658
    Oklahoma .......... 6.6.......... 250
    Michigan.......... 6.3 .......... 589
    Nevada .......... 6.3 .......... 176
    Florida .......... 6.2 .......... 1158
    Illinois .......... 6.2 .......... 792
    Tennessee.......... 6.0 .......... 379
    West Virginia.......... 5.9 .......... 103
    Indiana.......... 5.7.......... 364
    North Carolina.......... 5.6 .......... 551
    Ohio .......... 5.2 .......... 578
    Pennsylvania .......... 5.2.......... 620
    Texas .......... 5.2 .......... 1389
    Arizona .......... 5.0 .......... 322
    Alaska .......... 4.7 .......... 37
    Kentucky .......... 4.7 .......... 203
    AND THEN

    So we’re pivoting the subject to mass shootings? I thought we were talking about homicides and gun controls?

    Oh we can talk about that too.


    If you don't have a criminal record your chances of being shot are on par with denmark.


    The fear mongering is real.



    And actually what we are supposed to be talking about is what "well regulated" means.

    Except that it is on par with all of Denmark, criminals and non criminals combined. Your cherry picking to get the result you want is stupid if you’re not going to compare to the same group elsewhere. If you live in a really rich neighborhood and don’t own a gun, the chances are on par with someone in an igloo in Greenland. So?
