Don't waste your time with Fanny. In part, the post he copied said:

This piece making the rounds today, on how we know that gun ownership rates CAUSE mass shootings, doubles as an explainer on how social science works. (emphasis mine)

The above says it all about loony tunes logic.

That's what happens when you have too much freedom. That's why no one wants to immigrate here any more.

Stop being a wanker mate.

You are comparing an Australia with a population of 25 million living on approximately 2.97 million square miles of land to the United States population of over 325 million living on approximately 3.75 million square miles.

The amount of anger in this country's young population clearly reflects in the mass killings the last 20+ years. Regardless of the weapon used the perpetrators would have killed.

Start addressing the failures of parents in today's society and than you may be able to lower the frequency of these atrocities.

And the parents are just one part. What about Human Secularism and its primary tenet of atheistic evolution which clearly implies that no one's life is of any value or consequence since there was no purpose, design, intentionaltiy behind evolution, therefore no purpose to life either?

Moreover, our children are taught, at a nice tender young age, mainly in our not-so-mighty-fine public school system, social media, mainstream media, etc. that the murder of the most helpless, vulnerable, innocent humans in the womb is perfectly fine. Totally morally acceptable. This, too, reinforces the message of evolution as to the inconsequential value of human life.

The number of people shot in schools since the 1800's is trivial compared to any other form of violent murder. From DUI accidents to anything else. To want to flush the 2nd amendment down the shitter over that just proves people are shrills.

The White nationalist angle was a hoax perpetrated by 4chan users but of course the usual FanSuspects fell for it, had to be true:

Actually, I think much of the violence in the name of Entertainment and Art has been getting darker and darker in recent years. The violence was so dark and so intense in the last season I watched of the "Walking Dead" that I'm not going to watch what will probably be the final season.

That's what I posted earlier. Shows/movies nowadays, shots ring out and ultra realistic images of blood and gore are emitted. Sick and getting sicker.

Not to mention video games, like my current favorite, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (or PUBG for short), where they drop 100 people on an island with the goal of killing every last person using a wide variety of firearms until you're the last one left alive...
