    Why does the right wing remain quiet on this topic? Why is there no outrage by the right-wing.

    Mass murder is defined by the killing of 4 or more people?

    Who poses the most danger to Amercians, ISIS or other Americans?

    Who has killed the most Americans ISIS or Americans?

    Planned Parenthood. Why is there no outcry from you about the slaughter of unborn children in this country?

    My thinking is that your question about who has killed more Americans is going to have a huge swing towards isis or musloms, probably within a year. I'm sure they will be working on something 9/11 big, and with obamo's plan to import them, the odds go up.

    No where near the number of executions the US government participates in at abortion clinics around the country, I hope.

    Maybe there's no outrage because we think mass murder should be defined as *5* or more .

    I think what I'd need to know is:

    * What were the circumstances of the mass killing?
    * How were the guns obtained?
    * What is the result of the killing?

    That makes a big difference in my book.

    Does the St. Valentine's Day Massacre qualify as a "mass murder"? If so would the gunmen have obeyed today's gun laws?

    I believe that would be considered "Work Place Violence" Biggrin

    Well if it had been in a declared "Gun Free Zone" of course they would have obeyed the law. :D

    Crabby, you mentioned 3 situations - none of which has any connection, except with the possiblity that the shooters were all loners.
    ISIS is organized with a common objective.

    But the bottom line is that we are concerned with all mass killings.
