You can find all kinds of charts but everyone knows this mass shooting thing is mainly a US thing. You can compare it to car accidents all you want but those are accidents. If the NRA is such experts, why can't they solve this. OK, mental illness - the NRA can pay to fix mental illness. Their portion will be paid when the shooting thing comes in line with other countries. People will appreciate the NRA for that. Like car owners pay gas tax, tolls, car stickers etc. Sounds like a plan. Otherwise blaming mental health = doing nothing. Going to be a some higher number mass shooting for sure because they get a better plan each time, its almost a challenge. Conspiracy theories definitely are not helping in the mental health regard either. I realize it is the cost of freedom, but we should at least be going after Indiana, everybody knows most of the illegal guns in Chicago come from Indiana. I don't care about this issue much, but it is interesting how Trump will actually state some common sense on this one issue, but then walk it back when the NRA handlers get to him. The background checks won't make much difference anyway, its just about money.
The NRA actually donates money to suicide prevention organizations, also it's not just Indiana...a LOT of straw purchases take place here in Illinois. The city of Chicago, all upset when the handgun ban was struck down in DC v Heller and then Concealed Carry became a reality made the zoning ordinance for gun shops impossible to exist in the city limits...but now they are bitching because straw purchases are taking place in the suburbs and other states...making their ordinance a complete failure.
