Glad to see lott and his terrible study on here, people like to try to suggest that us mass shootings are kinda comparable with Europe which is patently bullshit to anyone with half a brain.

Deep did it in the last gun thread.

Yes there was another.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Nine people in Ohio have been killed in the second mass shooting in the U.S. in less than 24 hours, and the suspected shooter is also deceased, police said.

Dayton police tweeted that an active shooter situation began in the Oregon District at 1 a.m., but officers nearby were able to “put an end to it quickly.” Lt. Col. Matt Carper said at a press conference that the suspect was shot to death by responding officers.

At least 16 others were taken to local hospitals with injuries, police said. No details about the victims were released.

Police believe there was only one shooter, and have not yet identified the suspect or a motive. Carper said the suspect used a long gun and fired multiple rounds.

Miami Valley Hospital spokeswoman Terrea Little said 16 victims have been received at the hospital, but she couldn’t confirm their conditions. Kettering Health Network spokeswoman Elizabeth Long said multiple victims from a shooting had been brought to system hospitals, but didn’t have details on how many.

The people who do this will still be monsters even if they didnt have a gun. I dont see them just shrugging their shoulders and think "Well I dont have a gun so its all cool". Just take a car and run people over or build a bomb(dont need much knowledge for that).
So what you're saying is that Americans breed and create more monsters than the entire first world combined.

They'll do it anyways, isn't as much of a defense as you think it is.

It is in fact a direct condemnation of the civilization that creates the savages.

Mass Shooting in Dayton, Ohio, Kills at Least 9

Mass Shooting in Dayton, Ohio, Kills at Least 9: Live Updates
Twenty-six others were wounded, the police said. It was the second American mass shooting in 24 hours, and the third in a week.

By Timothy Williams and Daniel Victor

Police officers were nearby, potentially averting a bigger tragedy.
At least nine people were killed and at least 27 were wounded in a shooting early Sunday in Dayton, Ohio, the second deadly American mass shooting in less than 24 hours and the third in a week.

The shooting began at 1:07 a.m. on East Fifth Street in the city’s Oregon entertainment district, which was bustling with more than one thousand late-night revelers enjoying a warm summer evening, Mayor Nan Whaley said. Uniformed officers on routine patrol in the area responded, shooting and killing the gunman within one minute of his first gunshots, she said.

“While this is a terribly sad day for our city, I am amazed by the quick response of Dayton Police that saved literally hundreds of lives,” she said at a news conference.



Ms. Whaley said that victims, including one who is in critical condition and several who were in serious condition, were receiving treatment at local hospitals.

An employee at Ned Peppers, a bar on the street, wrote in a post on Instagram that “all of our staff is safe and our hearts go out to everyone involved as we gather information.”


Little was immediately known about the gunman.
The police have not identified the gunman or a motive for the attack.

The gunman appeared ready to exact an even higher toll. He was outfitted in body armor and carried a rifle and multiple high-capacity magazines for it, Ms. Whaley said.

There were no immediate clues to what might have motivated him, the police said, and no manifesto or social media presence has been found so far.

“We understand that the public wants to know who this person is, and that will be released,” said Richard S. Biehl, Dayton’s police chief. “Obviously, we’re working very hard to give the public an answer as to what the motivation might have been.”

Re: Mass Shooting in Dayton, Ohio, Kills at Least 9

I cant even bring myself to mockingly say "thoughts and prayers".

Seriously America: DO. SOMETHING. ABOUT. THIS.

A part of me though thinks that this has to be it, or we're not far off. There has to be a limit, there has to be a breaking point. There HAS to be.

Seriously how many people have to die because so many Americans value gun ownership over human life? Something has to be done, the issue has to be addressed, do anything, try anything, try something. Because clearly the gun culture in American in conjunction with the poor mental health that all countries suffer from, and the hate so prevalent in today's society cant just continue.

Its easy to say this sucks, this is bullshit, this is senseless. But what about the nine more families that are forever broken by this shit, in just this one instance? So much time and effort is put into hating on immigrants, and hating on Muslims, when the real dangers to Americans are other Americans.

Well don't have people involved with the gun industry have hands in the government (not happening), Don't let people have military level weaponry, put more money in the fuck mental health industry.

Apparently he murdered his own sister? Have to wonder what would possess someone to do that.

I thought this same thing but then immediately counter-thought that he's a mass murdering terrorist that wants suicide by cop. He's really fucked in the head so sistercide is just another check for his insanity.

Charles Whitman killed his mother and wife before he went on his shooting rampage.
