    If it is .22 calibre,as a youngster we used to shoot sparrows under the eaves of our house without damaging the roof sheets. The Seed & Produce shop used them for shooting Rats in the wharehouse with no damage to walls etc. Little pellets inside that crimped shell did the trick.

    You do realize their math doesn't work?

    I don't doubt their numbers but Baltimore alone has had 179 killings so far this year which include shooting and knives. In the shooting cases, multiple people were shot at......is it more than two people being shot at that makes it a "mass shooting"?

    We have 325 million people in the US and many of us have come to terms that a small percentage of people have no compassion for another's life whatsoever and yet look and act completely normal. These people are psychopaths and would as soon slit your throat as they would shake your hand. What's broken is that we keep manufacturing excuses for these people rather than sending them to a "more enlightened" country.

    Your President, John F Kennedy, once quoted, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

    That was the attitude he was referring to

    The detractors leave out the "like his predecessors" part of this comment.

    President Donald Trump has the choice to either “do something” about America’s endemic gun violence or “pathetically deflect” like his predecessors, according to Sky News host Chris Kenny.

    Today, I am also directing the Department of Justice to propose legislation ensuring that those who commit hate crimes and mass murders face the DEATH PENALTY - and that this capital punishment be delivered quickly, decisively, and without years of needless delay.

    Trump is not to blame for the gun happy idiots but he could have a go at getting military weapons banned like Obama tried after Sandy Hook ............ I honestly think he is the only one that could ...... but he won't

    Trump COULD have when first elected - he had control of both houses -IF his own party had supported it... which of course they would not. He no longer controls the House so even less chance. Demicrats from certain areas also won't vote against the NRA - way too much money involved

    Did Obama ever have control of both houses? If so, why didn't he? If not, well, there you go.
