Re: Another Mass Murder by a White Male w/ AR-15

I'd like to focus on just two items Cent provided in his anaylsis of our mass muirderers:

When the husband or father loses their job or goes through a divorce separation they are thrown out of the home.

 

"Their status is tied up in their occupation so they seem to suffer more psychologically, which seems to propel them in that way.

 

From 1776 until 1980, We the People had build an amazing society where each generation would do better than their parents. Then we allowed the ones at the top to keep all the profits for themselves, and now our children have little or no hope of getting as far as we did.

 

The same Party that legislated the huge redistribution of wealth from the middle to the very top in 1981-88 legislated the financial disaster that drove over 8 MILLION American families from their homes, and their only comment on this social engineering masterpeice was "perhaps those people were not ready to own their own homes and will have to be satisfied to rent" - a rough quote of Mittens Romney on the plight of those dispossed by GOP policies.

 

The same Party legislated to insure the availability of military grade weaponry for those who suffered the job and home losses that Party's wealth redistribution made inevidable.

 

Don't like being the only country not at war that has its citizens murdered by the dozens on a regualr basis? Stop voting for the Republicans that make that happen so their owners can get even richer while you and your kids drift down into poverty.

It is impossible to get into a rational discussion with you if every topic goes down to your your (sic) nonsense of Germany, Hitler, Nazis, fascists etc.

 

That's your usual cop-out response when you have nothing constructive to add. YOU claimed there were no similarities between Hitler and trump.  You were given several, so you whine and complain about terms used.  What a joke!


Another case of being unable to make the point rationally so talk about Hitler. Such shallowness is really not funny.


WRONG AGAIN! I didn't bring up Hitler, I responded to your post where YOU posted, "It would be more adult to explain your position rather than just say it is over my head. For example, "The far right in the US has Trump, and in Germany it had Hitler" - I see no connection between the President, Hitler and white males or AR15s." Another case of being unable to respond reasonably, or rationally, to false statements you make.

Of course the topic isn't about gays or white supremacists. Of course some don't like to actually receive answers to their silly questions.....oh well.  You asked and shame on me to have answered.  LOL!!!

 

The rest of your post isn't worthy of a response. But thanks for asking....


 

Still not a word about the topic but couldn't help to make it about another poster?   How adult!!  Shame. 


By nice, Tx - when he/she/it runs out of logical defenses all answers can not be silly film clips or Hitler comments. Sometimes attacking other posters is needed for variety. It's sorta like ROFLMAO alternated with LOL.

Another Military Style Assault Weapon of War needlessly in the hands of a Civilian at the Waffle House Slaughter.

 

REMEMBER THE SANDY HOOK CHILDREN !!!


And remember most would stil lbe alive if the NRAGOP had not made sure their murderer had the military firepower to blow open the locked door to their school.

 

Republicans value money over people. If you're a person, you cannot rationally support a party that puts you SECOND, and promotes the slaughter of your children in their classrooms and on our streets, and if they survive, sends them overseas to be slaughtered FOR NOTHING in the name of higher profits for the Death Merchants.

 

VOTE OUT THE NRAGOP

 

THEN

 

VOTE OUT SEMI-AUTOMATIC WEAPONS THAT CAN FIRE MORE THAN 8 TIMES WITHOUT RELOADING.

Why are white men more likely to carry out mass shootings?

 

After another mass shooting in a school, Americans are seeking to solve the problem of gun violence.

 

Nikolas Cruz has been charged with 17 counts of murder after a shooting at his old school, where he had been expelled for "disciplinary reasons".

 

Fourteen more were wounded at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in one of the worst mass shootings in modern American history.

 

Cruz's name now joins a roll call of mostly white men attached to the atrocities.

 

Of 95 mass shootings carried out in the US between 1982 and 2017, 92 of the perpetrators were male.

 

The final three are made up of two women, and one case of one man and a woman working together, in the San Bernardino attack in December 2015.

 

The shootings broken down by race, by Statista, show that 54 of the gunmen were white, 16 black, and seven each Latino or Asian.

 

Although there is frequent speculation about the mental health concerns of those who carry out the devastating acts, there is less conversation around whether the gender of the perpetrator is a larger issue.

 

Professor David Wilson, a criminologist at Birmingham City University, said: "Characteristics of USA school shooters? Male; used legally owned firearms - usually semi-automatic weapons; were ex students of the school they targeted."

 

He told Sky News: "What is interesting is that the average gunman tends to be slightly older than we have here [in Florida].

 

"If you look at the motivation that we know about it does seem to be that men handle their catastrophic loss and self esteem worse than women.

 

"When the husband or father loses their job or goes through a divorce separation they are thrown out of the home.

 

"Their status is tied up in their occupation so they seem to suffer more psychologically, which seems to propel them in that way.

 

"Men also have unequal access to guns and training in using weapons like handguns and rifles.

 

"Three-quarters of mass murders will use firearms and so that unequal access to the training is relevant."

 

Professor Wilson added that men tend to have fewer support networks outside the family unit and their workplace, which can be problematic if one of those breaks down.

 

He said: "Men all over the world have these experiences, but they don't carry out mass murders.

 

"The reason is that we have different gun laws.

Am I the one trolling or is it you?  Especially since you are not staying on topic but making the posts about another poster?  But of course you ALWAYS have to get the last word, so it's yours. 

 

Please don't post to me again if you can't stay on topic.

A senior citizen deals with pictures like this?  More fitting for a teenager wouldn't you think?

 

So when are you going to start dealing with the topics?
