    How many people have died in mass shootings?

    thetrace.org
    * More than three quarters involve a gun. In all, 934 people have died in mass shootings over the past seven years, the USA TODAY analysis shows. In the 71 shootings that involved someone killing his or her family members, 376 victims died.

    and the real killer is?

    Preliminary estimates indicate a leveling off of the recent upward trend in motor vehicle deaths, with the number of fatalities in the first six months of 2018 dipping just slightly – less than 0.5 percent – from six-month 2017 estimates.
    According to the National Safety Council, approximately 18,720 people died on U.S. roadways between January and June, compared to 18,770 during the same period last year. An additional 2.1 million people are estimated to have sustained serious crash-related injuries during the first six months of 2018 – a 1 percent drop from 2017 six-month projections.

    You could add drunk driving to the fruit salad

    Drunk Driving. Everday 28 people die due to drunk driving in the United States. This is equivalent to 1 death every 53 minutes. Over the past decade, drunk driving has resulted in nearly 113,000 deaths. During that period drunk driving has contributed to nearly 30% of car accident fatalities.

    We could make the police in the United States like the Bobbies in England... Take away the guns... That might work... The population of Great Britain is approximately 66 million... The population in the US is over 300 million. The total land mass of the United States is 40 times bigger than Great Britain... Iím not sure if that includes Alaska and Hawaii... Very crazy thought...

Shooting a lot of people at a music festival on your own, that's pretty easy in the US though. Again, this is not about stopping individual killings, which cannot be done. It is about harm reduction.

    Yup.. it's always for your own good "harm reduction"...lol. Tell me again how banning guns for law abiding citizens makes a difference for the criminal element who ignore the laws anyway?

    sorry, it doesn't quite work.

    What the UK and Australia did differently after mass shootings

    "It was difficult with two of the states, one in particular that had a conservative government, but they came to the party. But it was quite hard and it probably contributed to the rise of a right-wing populist party, called One Nation, which did us some damage in the subsequent election, but we were able to overcome that," Howard told CNN in an interview in 2013. Howard was himself a conservative.

    "I think at the end of the day those who opposed it realized that if we hadn't gotten our way we would have probably held a referendum or a national plebiscite to transfer the constitutional power from the state to the federal government. And the mood of the nation at the time was such that that referendum would have been carried."
    Since the buyback and reforms have been implemented, gun deaths have continued to decline.

    you love ig investigations run during the trump administration. let's see how this one plays out.

    USDA inspector general launches climate change investigation

    "From droughts to floods, farmers are under threat across the country because of increasingly unpredictable weather events," she said. "The allegations that the Trump administration has suppressed USDA research which could help us mitigate the impacts of climate change raise very serious concerns."

    The news of the IG investigation follows another report from POLITICO last week, which found that USDA is spending less than one percent of its budget helping farmers and ranchers adapt to climate change while weather becomes increasingly extreme and unpredictable across the country. The climate work that continues on a shoestring budget at USDA is being kept low-profile to avoid political controversy.

    Where do we begin with your foxnews trump position?
    Let's start with the word "lynching", which signifies a lawless death by hanging. A word associated with the past and african americans from a time I wouldn't call the good old days. Hardly a concept in line with the constitutional duties of congress to hold a president accountable. And hardly something a rich white guy can whine about without coming off insulting to those families who suffered lynchings.

    Then there's the testimony of Bill Taylor that went on for 10 hours and pretty much sums up the quid pro quo in his opening statement.
    (CNN)Top US diplomat in Ukraine Bill Taylor told lawmakers Tuesday that US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland told him that President Donald Trump had said he wanted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to publicly state he would investigate Bursima and the 2016 election in order to provide the Ukrainians with a meeting and security assistance, according to a copy of Taylor's opening statement obtained by CNN.

    Read the full statement here
    In his report, Mueller stated the trump associates didn't warrant conspiracy because they didn't know it was against the law to bargain with foreign nationals in an election.

    It gonna be hard for the GOP to argue that trump didn't know it is a problem getting help from the Ukraine to get either something on Biden or make something up about it being Ukrainians and not russians messing with our 2016 election to help his election. Quidproquo.

    ... But the old-fellows say we must read to gain knowledge; and gain knowledge to make us happy and be admired. Mere jargon! Is there any such thing as happiness in this world? No: And as for admiration I am sure the man who powders most, parfumes most, embroiders most, and talks most nonsense, is most admired.

    trump must think since he got off the hook with mueller he could continue unobstructed. trump's bigly mistake. now congress has caught him doing it again.

    Robert Mueller kneecaps President Trump’s no collusion, no obstruction mantra

    Former special counsel Robert S. Mueller III wasted no time during his House Judiciary Committee testimony Wednesday in undercutting President Trump’s ongoing insistence that Mueller’s probe cleared him of all wrongdoing.

    In fact, it was only about an hour after Trump’s most recent claim that there was “NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION” that Mueller slowly read into the record an opening statement that made obvious how wrong Trump was.

    “The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” Mueller said. But: “We did not address ‘collusion,’ which is not a legal term. Rather, we focused on whether the evidence was sufficient to charge any member of the campaign with taking part in a criminal conspiracy. It was not.”
    “Director Mueller,” Nadler asked, “the president has repeatedly claimed that your report found there was no obstruction and that it completely and totally exonerated him, but that is not what your report said, is it?”

    “Correct,” Mueller replied. “That is not what the report said.”

    speaking of hillery and the doj investigation and the locker up chant. what about the recent announcement by the state department?

    State Dept. finds no ‘systemic’ classified violation in Hillary Clinton private-server emails

    “While there were some instances of classified information being inappropriately introduced into an unclassified system in furtherance of expedience, by and large, the individuals interviewed were aware of security policies and did their best to implement them in their operations,” the report said.

    “Instances of classified information being deliberately transmitted via unclassified email were the rare exception and resulted in adjudicated security violations. There was no persuasive evidence of systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information.”
    Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is among those who have pressed the State Department to investigate whether any aspect of the private-server fiasco should result in discipline for State employees or revocation of security clearances.
    Grassley’s office released the Bureau of Diplomatic Security's report publicly on Friday. A Grassley spokesman had no comment on State’s findings.
    and back to that impeachment question. one of trump's many attorneys announced today that trump can't be prosecuted if he were to shoot someone. glad that's been answered. so again, what is an impeachable offense? otherwise trump is a king, messiah, cult leader, despot, dictator or fuehrer. trump's favorite leader happen to be duterte, putin, xi jinping, im ong un, bdel-attah, erdogan, go figure.

    Trump lawyer: Trump can’t be prosecuted for shooting someone

    what's that's new nato going to look like that you want to create? trump's militia, turkey and the ukraine?

    Well! If Trump shot up somebody like the squad or maybe my buddy Adam I don’t think I would loose any sleep... I wouldn’t visit the complaints department... That’s for sure....

    #METOO... Much similar to NATO troops permanently stationed in places like Europe and South Korea... Now they are permanently stationed the the Middle East... I see that as a waste of time and taxpayer money... Not even mentioning injury and death... All for nothing in return... I’ll say it again “overwhelming power” is the only way to fight a war.... Reference the so-called (Surge)... Reference WWII... Reference Rolling Thunder in Vietnam ... In Vietnam didn’t work but they had the right idea. 500 thousand troops in the south and another 500 thousand in the north and more napalm could of been a winner with less casualties... We will never know politics always plays a major role in every war...

    speaking of shift, trump's been known to stiff his contractors then recently we witnessed him back stab the kurds. now we have taylor's testimony which showed fear of trump doing the same thing to the ukraine. trump sure is a roll model for one's children.

    we all know how corrupt the va is and thank god we have trump around to clear it up. clean the swamp and rid the country of the whistleblowers. not quite the way he intended.

    Top Trump aide suppressed VA whistleblowers, department investigator finds

    A political operator who led an office created by President Donald Trump to expose wrongdoing at the Department of Veterans Affairs used his position to quash whistleblowers and retaliate against foes, according to an inspector general report released Thursday.

    The accusations involve Peter OíRourke, who Trump appointed in 2017 to lead the new Office of Accountability and Whistleblower Protection, and his successor, Kirk Nicholas.
    The inspector general audit said that under OíRourke and Nicholas, the whistleblowerís office ended investigations into allies of senior officials, failed to consistently report to Congress and refused to honor whistleblowersí demands for anonymity. The office used unfair and shoddy investigative procedures, and in some cases didnít interview the subjects of some complaints, the report said.

    Shhh! Donít let this leak out... Iíve f****** around with the VA for 50 years itís always been a typical big government bureaucracy filled with waste, fraud and abuse. Itís always been a self serving giant. I think thereís been more progress in the VA under Trump than any previous president. Sometimes you can paint a happy face on a outhouse door but itís still a outhouse. Rule of thumb all big government bureaucracies are screwed up from top to bottom... If you want something f***** up get the government involved... :rolleyes ...
