10. while they don't in suicides and everyday street crime

terrorist attacks they certainly do around the world. When gun prohibitionists say "Australia" they ignore the fact that there were just as many mass shootings, using US FBI definition, before and after Port Authur and the National Firearms Agreement. Of course they don't bother to mention the several mass murder by arson since the NFA.

My point was had he used that, none of those politicians would say or do shit. Why? Because there is nothing in it for them. Or, what if they used machine guns off the black market like like the attackers in Europe?

I despise what Sam Harris calls the regressive left as much as I do the right wing. Actually more, because of the added bonus of hypocrisy. Just watch the Young Turks, which is ran by an Armenian genocide denier, or MSNBC. Had he been an NRA member, it would be "all NRA members or rednecks", if were a Mormon, Larry O'Donnell on MSNBC would be screaming about evil Mormons. Christians, then the floodgates of bigotry would be opened up by fake liberals. Since it wasn't, silence.
