Default I compare the chance of getting killed in a

Mass murder shooter situation to be about the same as getting mauled by a brown bear while I lived in Alaska. Or attacked by a pit bull on my daily walk.

Sure any of these events can and do happen. But what are the odds of it happening to you?

Unless you frequent large gatherings, or walk along salmon streams without your bear bells on, or make a target of yourself by not knowing how to approach dangerous animals. Your probably as safe as you are in a Sunday school class.

Or trying to surf in shark infested waters. But they keep on trying.

I guess the odds are a lot better than the lottery...

Good point Mule!

You're actually in far, far more danger of being killed while driving someplace than you are of being shot once you're there.

When I lived in Alaska we had about the same number of plane crashes as bear mailings each year. Add a few ships lost each year and yeah your right travel is dangerous.

Travel is a lot more dangerous than most people ever imagine.

So you all are willing to continue with the status quo of these shootings with no effort to slow them down?

Guzzi, this thread is not really about the shootings. But rather the dangers of life.

In a country full of guns it is only practical to use them to stop this, of course that is not the libtard agenda which never ever works.. Cry, plead, act tough, do anything that will not work as long as it makes you feel safe. Whatever you do donít side with the people who can actually handle this problem...
