Come on. Fair dinkum. Enough of this slaughter!

Link.

A disgruntled US public utilities employee "indiscriminately" opened fire at a local government building in Virginia Beach on Friday afternoon, killing 12 people and wounding at least six others before he was killed himself, the city's police chief has said.

Cops kill far more people in America than mass shootings. Should we ban them also?

The Texan was quoting a "fact", & not taking pride in the statistic as you allude.

Here's another "fact". Criminals, when interviewed in prison, say that on the street, when in the commission of a crime, they have more fear about coming up against a citizen with a gun than a cop.

The "fact" is that more criminals are shot & killed by citizens than are killed by cops......

Are Americans "proud" of that statistic......While Americans have so much to be "proud" of, I doubt if pride actually crosses his/her mind, but when a citizen feels that their life is threatened, & they decide to fire upon the criminal (which more than 90% of the time it is way before the cops arrive) the criminal comes up at the short end of the stick.

The pride that the American Citizen would feel would be from living in a Great Country like the the United States of America, where having the Legal/Constitutional Right to Defend one's life with the weapon that best suits their needs, is something they would be absolutely "proud" of.

The unfortunate outcome for the criminal, now that's all on the criminal, because if the criminal didn't initiate the attack, they wouldn't be laying on that icy cold slab in the morgue riddled with bullets.

I once read somewhere that it is less than 1% of all killings by American Citizens after being criminally attacked, after the shooting claiming self-defense for shooting the criminal who attacked them, less than 1% actually sees any charges laid upon them, & of those charged for something, less than 1% of those receive any sort of conviction in court.

Now, that's Justice! Image

America has its place... people like greg are just old and listen to strange music and are jealous of a place with shitloads more importance than their own!

Greg is a propaganda merchant!

Nice bit of hypocrisy from the orange douchebag:

URANIUM MINING NEAR GRAND CANYON? Just over a year after taking credit for an Obama-era effort to protect land near the Grand Canyon from uranium and other hard rock mining, the Trump administration is voicing opposition to legislation that would permanently safeguard the same area. [HuffPost]
