Doesn't "mass shooting" still equal "spree killer"? Because some gang assholes shooting at each other really shouldn't be defined that way.

"A witness who did not want to be identified said she saw a car drive up and someone open fire. She said shots were also fired across the street at the Mobil gas station."

Are the lives of those killed in a gang shooting  worth differently to you than those killed in a mall?  Why is that?

This doesn't count as a mass shooting. It was at a party. It's basically the modern version of turning off the music and flicking the lights on and off. The shooting just lets you know the party is over.

Do I have less sympathy if you were engaged in an active gunfight when you got shot? Who the fark doesn't? What kind of dumb ass question was that?

Mass shooting, yes.  Ideologically motivated?  Probably not.  Not to trivialize gun violence or the suffering of those subject to it, but amplifying coverage of non-ideological mass shootings is a technique used by extremists to induce desensitization to mass shootings that are ideologically driven.  After all, if gang members are opening fire upon crowds in their own neighborhoods, is it really any worse--or more importantly, any more newsworthy--if a youngster from a rural town travels 200 miles to open fire upon a similar crowd?

So them third world, shiat hole countries where them men wear dresses and pack AKs everywhere?  Why don't they have mass shootings like Merica?  Is they too Stoopid to know what them guns is for?  Or can they just afford the gun and an empty clip?

This wasnt a mass shooting.  If we counted all these types of shootings as mass shootings, it would ruin The Narrative.

1.  I appears to be at a night club or similar venue.
2.  No race or description of the shooter.  So likely not a white maga or white ultra maga.
3.  Probably not a fully semi automatic assault rifle 15.
4.  No manifesto.
5.  Biden hasnt denounced this shooting.

FTA:

Police later confirmed that eight additional victims had been shot in the incident, many of which self-transported to local hospitals.

Tell me this happened in the USA without telling me this happened in the USA.

"Holy f*ck, you've been shot! I'm calling an ambulance!"

"The hell you are, I ain't some rich motherf*cker. Now help me duct tape this torn up shirt around my arm so I can drive myself to the ER."

/I know, it's redundant because we're already discussing a mass shooting
//also, the fact that we're apparently now down to arguing over the semantics of whether it's a 'mass shooting' or a 'spree killing' because we've effectively given up on having any actual productive debate about gun control

One short ambulance ride can fark up your credit for years if you're low income. Ask me how i know. Wouldn't have let them take me if I was awake goddammit.

We could slightly cut down on mass shootings easily, all we would have to do is raise the number of victims to double digits.

Exactly. It's completely 'normal' for someone in the US to avoid an ambulance ride at literally any non-monetary cost, short of certain death, for that very reason.

I havent been shooting.  Nobody I know has been shooting.  The shootings appear to have 2 main types.  Night club and maga.  I dont night club and i dont maga.

Im doing my part.

If people would just stay home, you would not get shot, and all these shooter freedumbs could remain protected.

Sure it does.

Mass shootings are white people killing minorities or children.  Mass shootings get national media and the president has to denounce it.  Mass shootings get new laws passed.

This shooting barely got regional news.  And not a single new gun law will be mulled over by it.

The Narrative says this wasnt a mass shooting.  The Narrative will memory hole this shooting.

In the late 1960s I was literally in a psychedelic garage band called Blue Flame. Sounded too much like Blue Cheer, so we changed to the Krystal Kage. We really sucked.

There was a mass of people who were shot. Therefore it would seem to be a mass shooting. Whatever it's stupid and senseless   no matter the motivation and shouldn't happen. And like every mass shooting everyone will tell you all of the reasons and never do anything to stop it from happening again.

According to the big hotshot gun guys here on Fark, you're supposed to shoot the mass right in the center.

It's highjacking the language, not just conflation.  It's fully intentional to get people scared of "What if? It could be me!"

When if you aren't a drug dealer or attend 1,000 person after hours parties, your chances of being involved are so close to zero that it's not anything that should ever enter your mind as a normal worry.

Do you believe that all of the people shot is gang related shootings are participants in gang activity?
