    There's no difference.
    Those drive-bys don't discriminate between innocent and guilty. Many a child has been hit in drive bys.
    The big city politicians don't want peace. Black leaders don't want peace. Peace won't get them money and power.

    They are saving it for Monday so they can complain that their 2nd amendment rights are being taken away.

    All the major us cities with gun violence problems are controlled by democrats. Democrats need to do a better job with gun violence before they try to handle it at a national level.

    The difference is zero. (I did that in my head) Preventing murder is complicated and requires a lot of time and effort. Gun laws are easy, require no effort, and gives people a warm feeling. Its like a participation trophy.

    Reporting it and making it the lead item on every news show for days are completely different. I'm assuming that's why you didn't respond to this part of my post:

    But the left won't raise hell about these shootings, they won't have vigils, they won't have nationwide fund raisers, their community leaders won't make speeches, there will be no catch-phrase like New York Strong and whatever headlines this story creates won't contain the words white supremacist or white nationalist. On top of that, no one is going to run around calling for a ban on assault pistols or call them weapons of war and mass destruction.

    I'll say it again, if a mass shooter had shot and killed 5 people a subway, bus or gay bar, every democrat wannabe would be running to the nearest CNN microphone. But because 5 individual murders took place in a liberal city with strict gun laws and were committed most likely by the people the left often claims can only be victims, no one seems to care.

    In my mind 5 dead people equals 5 dead people. I'm also inclined to think that a guy who shoots 5 people in a bar or subway probably never murdered anyone before and will probably be caught quite quickly. But with this story we have 5 murderers, some of them probably killed before and will do so again. To me the bigger danger are the 5 murderers who are roaming the streets who are pure evil and encourage others to be like them rather than the relatively rare nut job.

    Oh, gun violence is very high on the agenda of the left. They want gun control.
    The right wingers just let it all happen.[/QUOTE]

    So should every shooting in America make the national news?

    Shooting people seems a lot like fishing. There is a size limit and a maximum in possession. Shoot one random adult nobody cares but shoot a kid or two or six or so adults and the evil gun must go.

    This OP story and crockadile tears for the five (5) people shot in NewYork City the other weekend is nothing but political phony BS.
    Let me put this in perspective:

    5 people shot dead in NYC iS 5 out of 8,623, 000 or .000058%
    5 people shot dead in Albany, NY is 5 OUT of 98,251 or .005 %
    5 people shot dead in Middletown, CT is 5 out of 47,749 or .001%
    5 people shot dead in Colebrook CT is 5 of 1413 or .34%

    Now you wonder why there was no "news" reporting of the 5 shot dead in
    NYC it is because it does not amount to a grain of sand in the Sahara at .000058%.

    But if 5 people were shot in Colebrook CT on one weekend that would be
    .34%.

    You see this is all about perspective. Five people shot dead in one small town is News. Five people shot dead in NYC is just another weekend.

    Let me put it in another way: tthere are an average of 800 flightsat JFK per day. There are 8.3 average flights per day at Twead New Haven airport.

    On e is wow the other is BFD.

    Hate to say it, but that’s the same logic libs use to defend the murders by illegals and Muslims. Care to use the same rationale and calculations for white Supremacists, Nazis and....drum roll, blacks?

    No one not even the looney left defends murder of anyone by anyone.
    The point is that every time there is a mass shooting those who do not give a s...... that innocent people were killed deflect by talking about Chicago or NYCITY. Then they add that those cities are run by Democrats as if that fact causes murders.

    This is all about resisting background check or not wanting to restrict bump stocks or not wanting to restrict 100 round magazines.

    You are confusing indiscriminate shooting with personal, individual shootings. In other words, we agree but you missed it.
    I wouldn't know about that.
    Definitely true.

    Link? Dont forget, suicides and gang violence are the vast majority. As many or more, die in cars. Our highways are A WAR ZONE!

    Your comparison is pathetic.

    In a city of 10s of MILLIONS on a dense teacher had 5 killings, for a variety of reasons. One shooter caught his wife in another guy. Several were robberies. Maybe one was a kid playing with a "unloaded gun". Maybe a cop shot a guy running away. A drug deal goes bad....

    But the problems like that a COMPLETELY different issue when a guy can plan and turn a schoolroom with high powered guns, shotguns, large clips of handguns big enough to through a 8 year girl old out of her shoes, leaves multiple missing legs or arms or heads turned to unrecognizable hamburger!

    But even that is not all of it! After that, people who are supporters of having all that firepower available very available, even to people who aren't able to be on an airplane or have guns like that even when those people are in altercations!

    But that's not all, either! Many of those people who supported this nearly unlimited firepower claim THERE WAS NO WHOLESALE SLAUGHTER OF THOSE CHILDREN!

    These gun supporters say the kids were fakes, "crisis actors", that NOTHING HAPPENED!

    Or here, where gun supporters claim there is no difference in the kind of individual killings that happen in 10s of millions of people, many poor, jammed in a big city vs the multiple and ever increasing slaughter, not just 5 or 10 at once, but 15, 20, 30, 50, 200 and MORE, not just those deaths but even MORE wounded than the dead, sometime to spend a lifetime (sometime a much shorter lifetime) in pain, difficulty, and loss.

    God, how to people rationalize these kinds of attitudes? (Besides the paid propagandists, of course.)

    I think you miss understood my post. The gun control in these cities isnt working. I dont think the majority of people should be denied the right to defend themselves.

    Yes, most major cities are headed by Democrats. My guess as to why is that major cities are where you have the highest concentrations of educated people that are a little more capable of grasping issues that are over the heads of a lot of people on a board like this one. People who are a lot less gullible to having the flag and the bible waved at them by the same party that is screwing them over financially. And a Democrat run city is still within a country whose policy is affected by slack jawed gullible middle American Fox news quoting conspiracy theory believing voters who'd rather see a school get shot up on a weekly basis than restrict the sale of AR15s to teenagers.

    Five people were fatally shot in a 24-hour period throughout Brooklyn and Queens — and the gunmen in each case are still at large, police said Wednesday.

    I think police are still drying themselves off from all the water thrown on them and won't be able to start investigating this case for another 2 weeks. Hey, isn't AOC's district in Queens?
