America does it again....

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

I know that's obviously unlikely, and being from the ghetto I know that most gun violence comes from a very few concentrated areas (think Detroit, Miami, Chicago, L.A., etc), but it does scare off a lot of people when they see shooting after shooting after gun incident after gun incident.
Watching the news, it appears to me, most of the mass shootings are in white suburbia.
Mass shootings that are reported internationally don't even come close to portraying the gun violence at home. Have a look at this snippet from the Chicago Sun Times for example, almost 20 shootings this past Sunday alone, and that's the reported ones.

THAT, is a fascinating insight.
I had not imagined shootings to be so commonplace anywhere except war zones.
Live and learn hey!

^^It's very localized though, and I don't want to paint a picture of America being in total anarchy, because I'm heading back in August and am not worried about my conceal carry permit or anything like that. All depends where you are from.

For example, when I lived in the ghetto 3 people in my apartment complex ended up being shot, but when I moved out to farming country, literally no one locked their front door and left the keys in their car to keep it warm or cool with the engine running.

That's a quiet weekend. This one during the reign of Obama gets to me. Memorial Day weekend closes with 69 shot in Chicago, many of them on West Side

Canada should ban guns to prevent attacks like this from happening. Oh, they already have banned guns?

Then Canada needs to ban restaurants to prevent attacks like this from happening.
