Their definition of mass shootings are bullshyt:camby:

Just like the metoo movement they’re trying to prevent white males from being the face of mass shootings

A house party in which a altercation breaks out between two people resulting in a gun being pulled and multiple people are grazed but one person dies is not the same type of shooting as a white male buying 100’s of rounds of ammunition and going to the nearest elementary school, concert, grocery store, church etc to inflict as much loss of human life as possible.

"Context: The Gun Violence Archive defines a mass shooting as a situation in which at least four people are shot and either injured or killed."

You are thinking of a massacre.

Whether you agree with the definition of a mass shooting or not is inconsequential to the reality of what it means.

:dead:
It took you a while but I see you finally read for comprehension. :skip:

Their is no reality of what a mass shooting is. People will define a mass shooting to fit their agenda. Here’s some info from a actual reputable encyclopedia/dictionary. (Hint: That’s where you get definitions from, not random websites and organizations with agendas)

According to the FBI, I’m actually correct.


The FBI has not set a minimum number of casualties to qualify an event as a mass shooting, but U.S. statute (the Investigative Assistance for Violent Crimes Act of 2012) defines a “mass killing” as “3 or more killings in a single incident.”

There is no commonly agreed-upon term to define a mass shooting
, only “mass killing,” which Congress defines as three or more people killed in a single incident, not including the perpetrator.

The Gun Violence Archive does not exclude any shooting incident, as long as it meets the total number shot or killed. The circumstances in which they were shot, therefore, does not matter. As a result, their numbers tend to be higher than other lists, which is also true because they include victims and not just fatalities.

According to Bryant’s all-inclusive definition, there were 417 mass shootings in 2019. The FBI says there were 30, because it uses a much narrower definition.

Bruh, how do you say there is no reality of what a mass shooting is and then cite a definition?

You got it, lol. Have a great Wednesday!

I guess that’s your way of saying you were wrong. You could have just kept it moving. I hope you learned something :heh:

It does make sense. Read my latest post. Read slowly. Then reread again. Then respond.
Bro, the commentary is about gun violence and the propensity in harming a lot of people at once. You are splitting hairs for literally no reason. It’s bizarre.

Your objection and need to point this out adds nothing to the convo except to expose you arent seeing the picture clearly.

Bro

You are wrong again. When black people kill each other the commentary is always “black on black crime” they never blame it on gun control or gun violence when that’s exactly what it is and the solution is always harsher sentencing and the need to be tough on crime aka lock up black people.

In contrast, when white males are committing mass murders the issue is never “white on white crime” or tougher sentencing. They frame it as a gun control issue despite the fact that all of these white male mass murders acquire their weapons and ammo legally.

White supremacist think tanks are trying to define a mass murder as any shooting involving more than one people being shot. So if a gang member in Chicago shoots 2 people killing one, by their definition that’s a mass murder :camby:
