Need a ruling on "mass shooting"

Recommended Posts

So this just happened a block and a half away from my office:

https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/crime/police-responding-to-shooting-near-4th-avenue-and-pine-street-reports-of-multiple-victims/

(use private mode to get around paywall) 

The headline in the uber liberal ST includes the phrase "mass shooting":

1 dead and 7 injured, including 9-year-old boy, in mass shooting on sidewalk in downtown Seattle

I'm pretty certain someone here stated the mass shooting criteria was 4 people dead.  Very confused. :dunno:

Oh, and the "gang unit" was on the scene, so there goes that 2A argument.  The location is the most sketchy McDonald's in the world.  Always reminds me of Obi Wan's words of wisdom:

Mos Eisley spaceport. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.

If you know, were all the injured shot? If it's seven shot and 1 DOA, I'd say it's a mass shooting. If the injuries are from other things no.

Cyclone's criteria are 4 shot to qualify as a mass shooting. 

The fact that you only have 1 fatality just means the shooter was a terrible shot.

Mass shooting = 4 people shot (300+ a year, mostly gang violence)

Mass killing = 4 people killed (Only like 4 a year)

There isn't a true definition...  Some want four people killed, some want four people just shot, some count gang violence, others don't...

A "mass shooting" is whatever you want it to be to fit your agenda...

Depends. What is the race of the shooter? 

If white, mass shooting. If Muslim, terrorism. If black, gangland crossfire.

 You mean they just left? I've been told that a good guy with a gun is the only thing that can stop this.

 Or is this in one of those gun free zones. That must have been it.

I think it was an argument an then they pulled the guns out, turned their guns sideways, pointed them in the general direction while looking away and running away....if you know what I mean...and I think you do.

You've never been told this, at least not here.  Not once.  Ever.

 Only all the time....oh and it's also constantly pumped out as a national narrative. But no..that's not a thing thats constantly said.

 

 Again it's like I said. If you are somewhere in public and there is a former trained police or military person when the shooting happens? You have a chance because they will probably step in... you who goes to the gun range once a month? You're not stepping in to stop a mass shooting.

it's actually NEVER said.  If you think it is you need to go back to remedial English comprehension class.  And if it's a national narrative you'll be able to easily provide some links.  I won't hold my breath though.

 I need to actually provide a link to how often only a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun gets said? Are you serious? Do you think I came up with that or just made it up?

Yes, you need to provide a link to "ONLY" a good guy with a gun can stop something like this.

I'm willing to bet that if the shooter had been arrested prior for carrying without a license the nutjobs in that focked up liberal city would have cut them loose with a summons. Why not carry illegally in these areas? Nothing happens when you get caught.
