Thread: 14 Mass Shootings in the USA Over Memorial Day Weekend

  1. #1

    Unhappy 14 Mass Shootings in the USA Over Memorial Day Weekend

    Amid calls for gun control after last week's massacre at a Uvalde, Texas, elementary school, shots rang out across the country over the Memorial Day weekend, with more than a dozen mass shootings in the span of 72 hours.

    According to the Gun Violence Archive, which tracks shootings in the United States, there were at least 14 "mass shootings" in the country over the weekend, from early Saturday to late Monday.

    The archive defines a mass shooting as an incident in which "four or more people are shot or killed, not including the shooter."

    At least nine people were killed in the shootings, with more than 60 injured, according to the organization's data.

    A preliminary count found that gun violence not just mass shootings left at least 156 people dead and 412 injured from 5 p.m. ET Friday to 5 a.m. Tuesday, the archive said.

    To stop this level of violence, we need more armed citizens.

    So how many of them were the usual gang related shit that happens every single weekend with guns that were already possessed illegally?

    That article is intentionally being super vague with details about anything they're talking about.

    A preliminary count found that gun violence — not just mass shootings — left at least 156 people dead and 412 injured from 5 p.m. ET Friday to 5 a.m. Tuesday, the archive said.




    Among the shootings over the long weekend was one Monday night in Charleston, South Carolina. Multiple people were shot and at least three law enforcement officials were hurt after gunfire erupted in the city's downtown, according to police.

    Earlier in the day, a shooting in Philadelphia left two women dead and two others injured.

    Philadelphia police said they found the two women shot in the head in Port Richmond just before 1:30 a.m., NBC Philadelphia reported. Both women died at the hospital.

    A teenager was also rushed to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the shoulder in connection with the incident, while a man who was found shot a block away was taken to a hospital and was in critical condition, police said.

    Take note of how they snuck this line in, which contradicts the headline of the article, and most people don't read past the headline because they're stupid.

    I'd bet money that the majority of these numbers just fall under "gun violence" and not "mass shootings" just because of how intentionally vague they're being.

    In before Seran drama queens it up some more.

    Notice there's more violence when it starts getting hot. People with guns obviously don't like getting sweaty, so they murder people to cool off.

    I agree that it's not just guns. As Donald Trump Jr. said this weekend, if no guns were available, the Uvdale shooter could have used a bat or a machete to commit exactly the same murders.
