Yeah, my definition of mass killing means the perpetrator didn't personally know the people, and was not motivated by vendetta against particular individuals.

I haven't followed news for over a decade and feel better off for it. The news constantly instilling fear of being shot, but that being a great mercy considering the suffering global warming will inflict on me isn't healthy. Once detached from the propaganda machine, I'm able to realize that my own boneheaded decisions are most likely to catch up with me.

We're at the point where guns can be printed. What are we going to do, ban plastic? We need a better society because slowing technological progress is futile.

Plastic? Laser-sintered metal multimaterials.

I do not see any reference to FBI statistics in the link in a link, although they seem to say that it is an apples-to-oranges comparison.

I thought I posted a link that FBI count 3 I think, other countries count 4 but I don't see it. But and most important is what shouldn't be counted. The news is about the Walmart or Vegas shooters. Shooting that aren't random be it gang/criminal related or relatives are counted but shouldn't. If you aren't a criminal you are most likely to get killed by someone you know. Most murders aren't random. Most deaths by firearms in the US are suicides. Taking guns away from someone set on killing themselves or family members won't stop them, just change the weapon.

I would be inclined to agree with you, but here is a documented case of suicide rates going down after a popular option is removed: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/953381
