They were military, correct? If so then they've had some training to handle high stress situations.

Most of society has not.

It's delusional of me to think that if I'm in an active shooter scenario, I will calmly pull out my pistol and shoot the bad people. No combat experience, just me at the range daydreaming

It's open carry in TX, what did a majority, if not all the civilians do when the sniper started shooting? They ran. Some of them has guns, guess according to the NRA, they failed

Yeah, so much for that "good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun" mantra.

To be fair, it was technically on topic... as a way of proving how ridiculous it is to think that cops can afford to live in many of the cities they work in.

That's said, probably a good idea to have a rent is too damn high thread

Mass Shooting Tracker

five mass shootings in the last four days and only one of them has even been hinted at in the media.

Don't encourage hysteria. When a crime happens and more than one person is shot, it's not automatically a mass shooting. In one of those you posted, two people were shot. It's not a mass shooting.

I'm not marginalizing the fact that people were shot, but to classify it as a mass shooting is to try to equate it as the same thing as when dozens of people get shot and killed.

?

the five incidents listed on that site as of this moment:

07/20 - 0 dead, 4 injured
07/20 - 0 dead, 4 injured
07/19 - 0 dead, 4 injured
07/17 - 4 dead, 3 injured
07/17 - 0 dead, 4 injured

The Mass Shooting Tracker is a crowd-sourced database of U.S. mass shootings. We define a “mass shooting” as a single outburst of violence in which four or more people are shot. This is not the same as mass murder as defined by the FBI.
no idea what link you clicked on.

edit: anyways, that was really just to get this thread back on topic more than anything.

We've reached critical mass when someone tries to argue that 4 people shot isn't a mass shooting

Google the incidents listed. Even by that definition, two shot, two wounded by unknown means. I noted that on one of them. And even that definition in which you bolded declares its their own definition.

Look I'm not trying to argue semantics. But every shooting can't just be called a mass shooting. Especially when the intention of the shooter isn't to kill as many people of type X as possible. It's just not the same thing. And this is on topic.

What does the adjective "mass" mean to you? Two to four people, as sad as it is, is not a "massive" amount of people shot. Sad as it is, you have to observe that lots of people do get shot daily in this country and this world. It mostly concerns me on a count of the dangers of a sensationalized media. Look at what sensational media did with black lives matter... it took something that was always happening and returned a lot of dead cops. And now cops are going to be on edge, and we enter a cycle of violence.

A lot of mass shootings though aren't really mass shootings. Like Sandy Hook where one guy killed one of his illegitimate children because he was mad at the mother and then Obama sent in some goons to kill more kids so that they could tighten gun control. A real shame.
