    End of discussion.

    It's not a fake orgasm; it's a real yawn.

      I don't say that with any joy. Most mass killers, as I understand, plan very far in advance for what they are doing. These are not people that suddenly 'snap' and go on a shooting spree. There are on average 20 mass killings in the US every year and have been for a long time. They kill about 150 people per year and are largely unpredictable and unstoppable.

      I don't see this as the end of any discussion but, it could be the beginning of one. I am just a political realist. I don't see a gun ban happening as good as that may be.

      ten thousand people are killed by guns annually in addition th the 150 who die in mass murders. This is a number we need to think about.
