May I suggest what statistics are for and this is an oldie but a goodie: Damn liars. The world is watching and sees our schools, movie theaters, concerts, churches, restaurants and any gatherings as unsafe. It really should be enough and we don't need statistics manipulated to make a case. There is no excuse for the murder of our kids.

Or anybody else, you just hear about every death now. Only knew about local stuff before. Just like you can know what some random kid in China had for breakfast.

That's because only the worst things make the news.

Its similar to a car forum, you rarely see a "everything's working right" thread, so when you search for an issue, you see tons of threads with that issue. Doesnt necessarily mean its a big issue, just a lot of reporting of it.

Ive never felt unsafe at any normal place. And that includes the movie theaters in the area that the Aurora shooting was at, or the schools near and including columbine. If you're afraid of the .00001% chance you are killed in a mass shooting, I'm sorry that you live your life in fear of everything.

We definitely want change. The first thing that needs to be done is elimination of gun free zones.
