    You TOTALLY ignored that AR-15 STYLE rifles have become more and MORE popular and USED MORE in mass shootings!! You ALSO IGNORED 515 people SHOT and wounded with an AR-15 STYLE weapon in ONE INCIDENT....blowing your 308 deaths out of the WATER!!!

    Do you SERIOUSLY think someone wounded does NOT count?

    Why don't you and I go visit the parents and friends of those killed last week and those shot in Las Vegas and Texas last fall and give them your report, so they can all feel relieved and better that the figure is not higher......Then you can explain to them why NOTHING should be done, shrugging your shoulders and tell them, sorry, you just don't give a sh*T.!!

    Only you and your fellow shills would point out something, as per usual, WITHOUT any factual connect and causation to what you are saying.

    Why don't you also, discuss this?

    There were 58 people killed in Las Vegas, which would not "blow 308 deaths out of the water."

    At least 17 this year, and it's still early in said year.
