The inside scoop

Yet another shotgun maniac in the U.S.A. I swear these stories are on the daily now.

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?

Quote:The head of the New York police officers union, Patrick Lynch told the BBC: "There's blood on many hands tonight. Those that incited violence on the street under the guise of protest. We tried to warn - it must not go on, it cannot be tolerated."

Quote: Gun related violence is most common in poor urban areas and frequently associated with gang violence, often involving male juveniles or young adult males.

Although mass shootings have been covered extensively in the media, mass shootings account for a small fraction of gun related deaths and the frequency of these events had steadily declined between 1994 and 2007.

Between 2007 and 2013, however, the rate of active shooter incidents per year in the US has increased.

Hand guns figured in the Virginia Tech massacre, Binghamton shootings, 2009 Fort Hood shooting, Oikos University shooting, and 2011 Tucson shooting. Assailants with multiple weapons committed the Aurora theater shooting and the Columbine High School massacre.

In 2010, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, 67% of all homicides in the U.S. were conducted using a firearm.

According to the FBI, in 2012, there were 8,855 total firearm related homicides in the US, with 6,371 of those attributed to handguns.

61% of all gun related deaths in the U.S. are suicides.

In 2010, there were 19,392 firearm related suicides and 11,078 firearm related homicides in the U.S.

In 2010, 358 murders were reported involving a rifle while 6,009 were reported involving a handgun; another 1,939 were reported with an unspecified type of firearm.

High profile assassinations such as those of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and the Beltway sniper attacks involved the use of rifles, usually with telescopic sights, from concealed locations.

Some police officers have taken to wearing two bullet-proof vests now. But I think this very complex social issues needs brainstorming from social agencies, politicians, police officers, the public to address issues that nobody seems to want to deal with, such as racial profiling, changing policy policy/procedures that don't work well for the public in the end, etc.
