Last week in the US.
Germany Paddo09 
Here is the weekly reminder that guns are a problem in the US and it needs to stop! Mass shootings last week: September 21, 2019 Lancaster, South Carolina, 2 dead 8 injured - Ten people were shot, two fatally, during a bar fight that escalated. September 21, 2019 South Bend, Indiana, 1 dead 3 injured - A man was killed and three women injured in an early morning shooting. September 20, 2019 New Orleans, Louisiana, 1 dead 5 injured - Six people were shot, one fatally, at an intersection in the Mid-City Area. September 19, 2019 Washington D.C., 1 dead 5 injured - A man was killed, and four others and a woman injured, in a possible drive-by in the Columbia Heights District. September 18, 2019 Chicago, Illinois, 3 dead 1 injured - Three men were killed and one injured after an argument about cigarettes escalated outside a West Garfield Park convenience store. September 18, 2019 Los Angeles, California, 2 dead 2 injured - A man and woman were killed, and two other women injured, in the Wilmington neighborhood after an individual shot into a crowd of people. September 16, 2019 Cheyenne, Wyoming, 2 dead 2 injured - Two adults killed, two juveniles injured in east Cheyenne shooting.

does it count as mass shooting if 1-3 people were killed?

3 is a crowd and every single life matters.
2019-09-23 09:18
No one's denying that every single life matters, but the term "mass shooting" is unclear since every country has a different legal definition of it

Ok screw the word Mass. Just focus on shooting
2019-09-23 09:23
But this thread specifically wants to focus on mass shootings. Shootings in general can be anything, gang stuff, homicide, technically even suicide, murder... the list goes on

Why are you doing this. Youre not even American. 😂
2019-09-23 09:17
Here is the weekly reminder that there are countries with similar amounts of guns but without any of these problems. These are societal problems, not gun problems

Here is the weekly reminder that america has over 325 million people living in it, a dozen or so people dying is not that big of a deal.
2019-09-23 09:19
I beg you to tell that to the families of the victims and see what happens
2019-09-23 09:21
Tell anyone, whose loved one died for any reason, that their death isn't a big deal and they would freak out. That doesn't mean that the government needs to crack down on every cause of death. Yeah sure some people get shot and die and that's fucked up, but it's hardly like the US is some dangerous place where you are always at high risk of being gunned down for no reason.
2019-09-23 09:25
Of course it's not and I'm not arguing USA is dangerous. But you can't deny that this is a problem specifically in the US. And I don't think it's a gun problem but rather a societal problem. Guns are just the easy scapegoat in order to not have to tackle the real problems
2019-09-23 09:28
The thing is, it's not really a problem. In 2017 there were 14,542 death from homicide with a firearm. There were 2,813,503 total deaths in 2017 and around 325,000,000 total people in the US. The chance that any person is murdered with a gun is ridiculously low.
2019-09-23 09:38
I mean when you're at the point where schools are getting built so they grant more cover to students to hide behind because of school shooters, I think you do have a problem at hand. Sure there are things that cause more deaths but doesn't mean that this is not a problem

I mean you can not really blame #17 for playing obvious problems with guns down. The NRA is paying billions to manipulate the simple people in order to keep the power

More like ridiculously high
2019-09-23 09:49
But that number is still far higher than any country in the world that we would be trying to emulate.

Obviously not. But you have to realize people die all the time.
2019-09-23 10:00
And in my opinion we should do everything we can to prevent it

Illinois argument about cigarettes Just everyday talk of nickthesmoker and his friends
2019-09-23 09:30
american government only cares about the big organisations that feed them money, just look at the vaping ban after a handful of deaths, while big ciggarette brands kill thousands.

Let me ask you this. Would you rather be armed or unarmed if someone breaks into your home?
2019-09-23 09:57
I’m sure as hell not gonna kill them, so what’s the point. I’m not weak for not being able to kill someone. The chances that me having a gun are going to do anything besides escalate a conflict are next to none. Besides, the majority of robbers could be deterred with lesser force like a bat or club. Very few have any intention of causing bodily harm and as such will not engage in a fight.

People that break into your home are unpredictable. They could be on drugs. They could be armed. You don't know how they will react.
2019-09-23 10:08
Doesn’t change the fact that a gun wouldn’t be any more helpful to me than any blunt weapon.
2019-09-23 10:08

Japan Onee_chan 
It would because you would be able to stop the unpredictable threat before it could harm you.
2019-09-23 10:09
Also, I doubt many robbers (home robberies) are impaired while doing so. That sounds like something you pulled outta your ass.

If they die because they get shot when breaking into someones home it's their own fault lol.
2019-09-23 10:09
I’m not saying that self defense isn’t ok, I’m saying that I wouldn’t be able to do it. I’m sure there are others who feel that way.

So you'd rather risk getting harmed yourself than to shoot the intruder?
2019-09-23 10:18
The chances of them harming me are very low. So I might just be in a corner with a bat yes.

Wtf? Why would you care about some parasite invading your home?
2019-09-23 10:19
To be honest, i like America and i would love to live there. Create my own familly, get job and start new life. But after all i saw, it would be too scary for me and i'll preffer to stay in Europe, yes we are small if we are compared to US. Ofc US have better economy and that shits but cmon, Europe is way too better than US (i repeat, i love US). If you're walking in Spain at night (1 am, 2 am, 3 am) you can feel very safe, nothing will happen to you in 99%, people are friendly, good food, cheap things. If we get here more jobs, it would be the perfect country trust me. But also EU has Champions League, so many football lovers, football leagues, entertainment everywhere u can look, always diferent people (i mean u can see russians, germans, frenchs, english, italians, swiss.... and not always US US US). Idk, i feel so good here but i repeat i would love to try how its life in US.

I walked at night in the US and i am still alive and i did not feel unsafe.
2019-09-23 10:32
You can't feel safe at night in US as you feel in Spain or any EU country
