Mr, Maher,
You assume the way to stop shootings is gun control. The opposite is true. Gun control takes guns away from law abiding citizens leaving only the criminals and crazies with guns.

The NRA represents us gun owners who are afraid guys like you will take them away. If not the NRA, the who else? The media won’t present both sides (I don’t call them journalists any more, journalism is dead).

All people who own guns are not “gun nuts” but all liberals trying to take them away are irrational wrt logical arguments. You look for every statistic you can to support taking guns away. You aren’t really trying to understand the issue. You KNOW you have the right answer and you’re just trying to win the debate. But the truth is, shootings like this happen in gun free zones for a reason.

These crazies commit suicide this way to ensure that their death results in headlines and debates for months to come. The MSM gives it to them. Bury the story on page 22 and the mass killings will stop.

The MSM reports every shooting it can find and makes it sound like the most likely way you are going to die is a gunshot wound.

Here is data for 2010:
Number of deaths for leading causes of death
Heart disease: 597,689
Cancer: 574,743
Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 138,080
Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 129,476
Accidents (unintentional injuries): 120,859
Alzheimer’s disease: 83,494
Diabetes: 69,071
Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 50,476
Influenza and Pneumonia: 50,097
Intentional self-harm (suicide): 38,364

Total gun deaths from all sources (from another part of report) for 2010 was 31K. Mostly gang and crime related, mostly with illegal guns, and including all suicides. Looks like shootings are being greatly exaggerated by the MSM.

Lastly, I know that you, and your liberal friends, don’t really care about the people getting killed. You really just want to take guns away from law abiding citizens. How do I know? Because you spend all your time and energy promoting laws to take away guns from law abiding citizens and I see no outrage, no call to action, no fingers pointed, and editorials written about the daily gun deaths in the gang and criminal infested large cities where shootings occur daily and the police for the most part ignore it. If you really cared about people getting killed you would start here, where 90% of gun deaths take place. Yet not a single law has been proposed, not a single action has been taken, and indeed, these deaths get hardly a mention.

Except these statistics are misused to support gun grabbing legislation. Liberals need all these gang shootings to support their statistics that the try to vaguely claim their legislation will address.

I suggest you look in the mirror, try to find some honesty deep down inside you, and address the real issues instead of riding the gun control horse as long as it will increase viewership.
