    What the hell is wrong with you. It takes a sick, hatred consumed mind to twist an expression of sympathy from one shooting victim to others into a condemnation of the political leanings of said expressor. Where were you when Obama said he was praying for the victims of any tragedy during his administration? After all he was expressing a belief in a God eho is hogh on your hate list.

    The big difference, jackwagon, is implied in the opening post. Obama actually DID things actively to reduce the likelihood of these Vegas-type incidents.

    Impossible to answer because we can't know how many mass murders there would have been without his efforts. But just the attempt is something of positive substance, unlike Scalise's prayers.

    Just as the opposite is true...it's very interesting that you are absolutely positive about everything that you say but resort to speculation? How is Obama's attempt so positive yet something millions believe in and practice not? Quit being so damn argumentative and silly.

    By the same token, we can't know how many single-victim killings or other crimes were prevented by the presence of a gun.

    No, we can only know, which we do, that with the highest gun ownership rate in the advanced world we have the highest gun death rate... by far.
