Decades of drive by shootings were commited by who?

All law-abiding owners of guns with gun permits, I bet.

*RUNS TO GOOGLE OFFICES FOR LATEST STATISTICS ON DRIVE BY SHOOTINGS VS MASS SHOOTINGS*

*MAKES ARGUMENT THAT MASS SHOOTINGS STATISTICALLY HAS HIGHER DEATH TOLLS PER EVENT*

*DOESN'T MENTION TOTAL DEATH TOLL NOR FREQUENCY OF DRIVE BY SHOOTINGS*

*ATTACKS NRA, A GUN CLUB. DOESN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT WEAPON PRODUCERS, OR ARMSDEALERS*

*OBAMA, THE FORMER PRESIDENT, COULDN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT, BECAUSE OF PESKY REPUBLICANS*

*CONCLUDES CRITICISING BLACK ON BLACK CRIME IS RACIST*

*YOU'RE A WHITE MALE*

*JOINS ANTIFA*

Black males between 18 and 34, around 4% of the population, commit over 50% of homicides and an even higher percentage of violent crime.

 

I know the numbers from the Department of Justice but take a look at the number of people killed in mass shootings by white males and the number of people killed by black males since 1980 yourself. Let's just say a couple more people have been killed by black males. Should they be profiled?

Discussion was about Mass shootings.  if we are branching out toward homicides then we can branch further and include Genocides commited by white people after they illegally immigrated onto this continent.  In America the Mass genocide of Native Americans including those in South America makes the # much higher.

It was just homicides since 1980. We could branch out to humans killing other humans since the dawn of man but that's ridiculous.

Let's ignore the fact that the Native American's committed atrocities during the time period their inferior culture was being dominated and pushed back. /s

Department of Justice also has interesting stats comparing murder rate and income.  Turns being poor is the biggest cause of murder. Applies to white people too. Hispanics are the only exception here, they seem to be more chill.

They should issue "Get out of jail free cards" to any person who murders another person if the murderer is poor. Maybe give them a reward. Then they wouldn't be as poor and they wouldn't be as apt to murder people.

Yeah it's just a thought that maybe socioeconomic status has more to do with it than skin color.

You should omit the fact that they're male. That's a given. Chicks don't do mass shootings.
