So you honestly believe that the government had convinced hundreds of people to either die for these attacks or spend the rest of their lives in jail? How could they possibly convince that many people to do this without someone slipping up or deciding that it isn't worth their life? Do you have any evidence or justification for this conspiracy theory?

that is insane. the shooters involved come from a huge variety of backgrounds and act for a variety of reasons. you really think that anyone could get hundreds of people to go on shooting rampages? do you think it is even possible to keep that a secret when every single one of those shooters would be aware of the conspiracy? in the process they are killing thousands or even hundreds of thousands of people. to what end? why would they do that?

To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens ~ Adolf Hitler. These mass shootings happening could most likely be false flag attacks, in my opinion...

there were 353 mass shootings in the US this year. that's a mass shooting pretty much every day. no other country has problems like that, unless they are in the middle of a civil war.

While guns don't kill people, neither do grenades, ICBMs and nuclear weapons. All weapons require someone to operate them in order to kill people, but that doesn't change the fact that it is substantially easier to kill people with a gun than almost any other tool. If someone decides to kill their coworkers, as happened recently, they will have a great deal of difficulty doing it with a pillow.

By controlling what guns are available we could reduce the number of shootings. Compare the number of shootings in the US to any other nation. The lax gun laws have created a situation where a week without news of a shooting is unusual.

except that it's alot easier to kill people with a gun. even if someone is still going to attempt murder without a gun they are much more likely to succeed with one. therefore even if gun laws didn't reduce crime (stats suggest it will) it would still reduce the amount of successful crimes. that seems worthwhile to me.

Guns don't kill people. people kill people with guns. Gun control in my opinion is pointless. it's possible to kill people with a pillow. you take away guns people will just use another tool. Guns left alone will only sit on a shelf a person has to interact with it for it to be deadly. we maybe should consider psych test with every gun purchase.

That depends on the question. Gum control can lower the rate of shootings and have fewer people killed in attacks. Can control cannot prevent terrorist attacks or murders since if people are determined to kill someone they will find a way.
