How many more mass shootings must the United States endure before they change their views of guns?

"How many more mass shootings must the United States endure before they change their views of guns?"

EXCELLENT POINT!...I just believe that the "change their views of guns" isn't what you emote it should be.

Let's look at a few examples:

"Gun Free" Luby's Cafeteria? - 23 slaughtered, 27 wounded

"Gun Free" Red Lake High School? - 9 slaughtered, 5 wounded

"Gun Free" San Ysidro McDonald's? 21 slaughtered, 19 wounded

"Gun Free" Columbine? - 13 slaughtered, 21 wounded

"Gun Free" Edmond Oklahoma Post Office Shooting- 14 slaughtered, 6 wounded

"Gun Free" Sandy Hook? - 26 slaughtered, 2 wounded

"Gun Free" Virginia Tech? - 32 slaughtered, 17 wounded

"Gun Free" University of Arizona College of Nursing? - 3 slaughtered, 5 wounded

"Gun Free" University of Alabama (Huntsville)? - 2 slaughtered, 3 wounded

"Gun Free" Northern Illinois University? - 5 slaughtered, 17 wounded

"Gun Free" Umpqua Community College? 9 slaughtered, 9 wounded

"Gun Free" Fort Hood 2009? - 13 slaughtered, 32 wounded

"Gun Free" Fort Hood 2014? - 3 slaughtered, 12 wounded

The "Gun Free" Century movie theater in Aurora? - 12 slaughtered, 70 wounded

The "Gun Free" Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church? - 9 slaughtered, 8 wounded

The "Gun Free" Chattanooga Recruiting Center? -5 slaughtered, 2 wounded

The "Gun Free" San Bernardino Inland Regional Center? 14 dead, 21 wounded

The "Gun Free" Pulse? 49 slaughtered, 53 wounded

The "Gun Free" Gabby Giffords meet-n-greet? - 6 slaughtered, 13 wounded

And yes, the Gabby Giffords meet-n-greet shooting was indeed "Gun Free", because while most of the victims COULD have been legally armed, NO ONE actually at the shooting took personal responsibility for their own safety by BEING armed.

Do you see any common thread? That's RIGHT! Most of the guns were obtained with a background check!

Did you notice anything else? THAT'S RIGHT! They were ALL in either Official "GUN FREE ZONES" (Laws/signage/mandates forbidding the carry of guns by the law-abiding) or Unofficial "GUN FREE ZONES" (where the victim COULD have been armed, but didn't take personal responsibility for their own protection that day).

Here's how 911 calls SHOULD be answered:

911 Operator: "911 Operator, what is the nature of your emergency?"

Caller: "OH GOD! FOUR MEN JUST KICKED IN OUR FRONT DOOR! SEND THE POLICE! PLEASE HURRY!"

911 Operator: "Caller, this is very important: What type of firearm are you holding at this moment?"

Caller: "SOMEONE IS IN MY DAUGHTER'S ROOM! I HEAR HER SCREAMING! PLEASE SEND THE POLICE!! OH, GOD! HURRY!!"

911 Operator: "Caller, please calm down. This is critical, what type of firearm are you holding at this moment?"

Caller: "Operator I'm NOT 'holding a firearm'! There are NO GUNS in our home! Guns only escalate an already dangerous situation! Now PLEASE DO YOUR JOB and send the police!!!!"

911 Operator: "I understand Caller. It is now 02:32, the ' Unarmed Officer Unit' doesn't come on duty until 08:00. When they clock-in, I will immediately dispatch them to your location. Until then: Stay safe!"

Did you know, that the police HAVE NO DUTY TO PROTECT INDIVIDUALS?
