    Murder is by and large an inner-city problem in the US, with gangs battling over turf and dealers shooting it out with their customers. But nobody gives a rat's a$$ when poor black folk die.

    The ½% of homicides that are "mass shootings" are focused on by the media because they can and do happen in rich, white enclaves. When they scream "How could this happen?" what they're really asking is "...here?"

    The perverse nature of the collectivist ideal is to deploy the argument 'FOR' collectives when it suits their pursuit of power, while on the flip side if uncomfortable truths about groups, demographics or collected individuals don't meet with the agenda such citations of evidence will be attacked as racist, ignorant, faulty or otherwise not relevant. This mode of operation is aped and mirrored at the level of the media and it's operatives, those called pundits and hosts. At the very top they know exactly, I mean to surgical levels of precision, how to play the psy war.

    Their great understanding is that Americans don't read and when they do they lack the tools to parse and discern what they read. They have this understanding, this assurance, because they imported the public schooling model from Prussia where it was designed using stimulus/response theory to create docile, confused adults desperate for guidance.

    That article pretty much lays it out. Now we have the facts, It will prove its not about gun control when no solution is posed to solve this problem. We all know it.

    We don't need no stinking facts.
