Mass Murderers

MassKillings.jpg
This is a list of the major Mass Murders and with enough supplemental data to help show why gun control doesn't really matter. Legislators and their gullible base, seem to think that if you make a law, that will stop someone who is already breaking the law by murdering people (usually in gun-free zones). This from people and legislators who speed, drive drunk, get caught cheating on their taxes (or worse), and from people that don't remember what an abject failure alcohol prohibition or the war on drugs has been. Laws don't change people. Most don't even slow people, because they're so easy to ignore. So bad laws (ones that individuals/society doesn't agree with, aren't enforceable and easily circumvented) often just teach contempt for the law. We can allow the people to get training and fight back.


Global

Here's a list of some of the largest global mass murders, to contrast with the U.S.: 7 items

Who What Lessons
2019.03.14 Christchurch Shooting

Brenton Tarrant (28)
Dead/Injured: 50/100
Weapon: Shotgun, Assault Rifle
🚫 Gun Free Zone
🎮 Video Games

A Green Nationalist (eco-Fascist), who hates Capitalism, Conservatism, and is Chinese Communist sympathizer. He doesn't like Trump, shot "muslim invaders" because immigrants were over-populating the planet and causing Global Warming, and used a gun instead of bombs, because he felt the left-wing gun-controllers would be his tools and magnify his message, and start a civil war trying to disarm honest citizens. The left ignores that, and spins it as he is a right-winger.
  • Politics: ⬅️ Left
❌ Gun Control can't help: legally bought, illegally modified, used in gun-free zone

❔Maybe: Video Game / Violence regulations
❔ Maybe: Media Suppression
✅ Pay attention to warning signs
✅ Better Security (more Conceal and Carry)

2018.04.23 Toronto van attack

Alek Minassian (25)
Dead/Injured: 10/16
Weapon: Truck (Rental Van)
🤪Mental Health

Ex military man (for a few weeks) and Software developer drove a rented van through the North York City Centre business district, deliberately targeting pedestrians, killing 10 and injuring (some critically)16 more. He tried to provoke an officer into killing him (commit suicide-by-cop), but this was Canada. His reasoning was he was Incel (involuntary celibate) and envious of men for getting sex when he couldn't, and mad a Women for not putting out.
  • Politics: unknown. While Canada and tech has a lot of lefties, people who knew him said he wasn't political.
❌ Gun Control/Assault Weapon can't help: used a van

❔ Maybe: Media Suppression
✅ Pay attention to warning signs
✅ Improved mental health policies

2016.07.14 Nice truck attack

Islamic Terrorist
Dead/Injured: 86/458
Weapon: Rental Truck

  • Politics: ☪️Islamic Radicalism - while they don't align with American politics, the left has generally been more sympathetic to their cause, more reluctant to aggressively deal with the problem, and they both blame the U.S. for many things.
❌ Gun Control is a distraction, the biggest threats use other tools.

❌ Trusting the authorities to protect you, your family, or be competent

2015.11.13 November Paris Attacks

Islamic Terrorist

Weapon: Bombs and Assault Weapons.

🇫🇷 Paris, France: a series of shootings, bombings, including the Bataclan theatre shooting (that killed 90). 3 groups of men committed 6 attacks (including 4 suicide bombings). Despite gun-control and illegal bombs, they had assault weapons and bombs, who knew terrorists would disobey gun control laws? Despite Turkish, Iraqi, and Israeli intelligences all warning of an imminent attack on France months beforehand, they were ignored by the French authorities.
  • Politics: ☪️Islamic Radicalism (done in the name of ISIS/ISIL)
❌ Gun Control didn't slow them down in France, nor did bomb control.

❌ Trusting the authorities to protect you, your family, or to be competent, is foolish

Islamic Terrorist
Dead/Injured: 12/11
Weapon: Assault Rifles

  • Politics: ☪️Islamic Radicalism

United States (Largest/Worst)

Here's a list of some of the largest United States mass murders, to contrast with the world. What you'll notice is that they often weren't done with guns, or were done by Government guns (gun control can't help either): 11 items

2001.09.11 Twin Towers

Islamic Terrorists
Dead/Injured: 2996/6000
Weapon: Box Cutters (& Airplanes)

After ignoring a threat, despite multiple other attacks, and then ignoring multiple warnings that the CIA and other intelligence agencies (foreign or domestic) missed and/or ignored. 19 hijackers hijacked 4 planes with box cutters, and flew them into various soft targets, as Tom Clancy and others had warned about. ❌ Gun Control is a distraction, the biggest threats use other tools.

❌ Trusting the authorities to protect you, your family, or be competent

  • Politics: Islamic Radicalism - while they don't align with American politics, the left has generally been more sympathetic to their cause, more reluctant to aggressively deal with the problem, and they both blame the U.S. for many things.
1997.03.20 Heaven's Gate

Marshall Applegate
Dead/Injured: 39
Weapon: Plastic bags
🚫 Gun Free Zone

University Music Professor Marshall Applewhite founded a mystical cult around extraterrestrials, and the idea that aliens on the Hale-Bopp comet would provide them new bodies if they freed their spirits (killed themselves) for the ride. They did a darwinian service of culling the mentally weak from the herd in San Diego, and showed that you don't need guns to kill a lot of people. ❌ Gun Control couldn't help

✅ Critical thinking skills and skepticism, if they were taught in our schools (indoctrination camps) might have helped

  • Politics: Sci-fi Millenarianism

Weapon: Fuel, Fertilizer, Truck
🚫 Gun Free Zone

Murrah Federal Building, and detonated it. ❌ Gun Control (confiscation) caused/contributed to the massacre

✅ When only the government has guns, you live in a Police State

  • Politics: Anti-Government.
1993.04.19 Waco Siege

ATF / FBI
Dead/Injured: ≈86/16
Weapon: Assault Rifles, Teargas, Fire

The Clinton Administration attacked some religious separatists in a botched show-of-force, that resulted in a shootout and siege, and convinced the Davidian's that the Government was out to get them. Then after 51 day siege, the FBI tried to tear gas the Davidian's out, and burned the compound down killing 76 people instead. This angered anti-government types, and got the Oklahoma City Bombing as a result. ❌ Gun Control (confiscation) caused/contributed to the massacre

✅ When only the government has guns, you live in a Police State

  • Politics: Davidian's were separatists that had lived in peace in the community since 1981 (12 years), it was only after Janet Reno's raid, that they became violent.
1992.08.21 Ruby Ridge

ATF/FBI (Government)
Dead/Injured: ≈3/2
Weapon: Guns

U.S. Government Agents (FBI/ATF) railroaded a guy to try to make him an informant. When he refused, they used screw-ups and technicalities to spy on him, got caught, got in a shootout, caused a siege, killed his wife, child and dog, then hid evidence of their malfeasance in all of it. And later got scolded in an investigation, and settled a civil suit for $3.1M. ❌ Gun Control was the problem. Governments lack of it, as well as bad laws making an excuse for abuse of power

❌ The government was on the wrong side of this one.

  • Politics: Anti-gun Democrat Administration and their abuse of the law.
1978.11.18 Jonestown

Jim Jones & Followers
Dead/Injured: 918
Weapon: Poison (Flavor-aid)

Jim Jones was the Democrats highly honored and respected cult leader, that had their full support. Until crimes started coming out and he fled to Jonestown, Guyana. And in failing health, and with the authorities closing in, he convinced/forced his followers to drink cyanide laced kool-aid (Flavo-Aid), which is where comments about "don't drink the Kool aid" come from. ❌ He supported Gun Control, and used poison and leftism instead

1927.05.18 Bath School disaster

Andrew Kehoe
Dead/Injured: 45/58
Weapon: Explosives
🚫 Gun Free Zone

Not all of his bombs went off, and "only" 38 students were killed. 500lbs. of explosives were found in the basement, undetonated. ❌ Gun Control couldn't have worked on bombs

Only to have this embarrassment swept under the rug by both sides for 75 years. ❌ Gun Control wouldn't have helped

✅ When only the government has guns, you live in a Police State

1857.09.07 Mountain Meadows Massacre

Utah Territorial Militia
Dead: ≈120-140
Weapon: Guns & Knives

Mormon persecution lead to suspicion and paranoia, and after some animals (and people) were alleged poisoned, and during a time when a Democrat President was agitating the mormons with the U.S. military, they wiped out a Wagon train (the Baker–Fancher party). There's a lot of fuzziness on whether it was sanctioned by Mormon leadership, and whether the rumors about the Baker–Fancher party were true. ❌ Gun Control wouldn't have mattered, it was basically an armed insurrection.

✅ If Government had provided protection of the Mormon minority, they might not have been so victimized/paranoid.

  • Politics: Basically, it was a subset of Mormon separatists behaving badly, after a Democrat President made things worse.

Conclusions

Ex President Obama and Democrats loved to spread lies like, "this kind of mass killing doesn't happen in other countries”. Only it does... often worse. The U.S. is one of the least murderous in the America's, and there were worse mass murders in Europe and Asia. Before Obama stirred up unrest, the rate was much lower. It turns out that while fostering change and racial friction might be a good political move, it seems to shake the crazies out of the trees. (Similar upticks happened during Clinton and Johnson).

In the U.S., I've noticed the following:

  • Patterns:
    • 8 of 11 were not surprises with multiple warnings/arrests/hints/concerned folks, including letters or prior attempts. Only 3 were the quiet guy next door.
    • 5 of 11 shot themselves, one was killed by SWAT.
  • Demographics:
    • All were males, but the "young white loner” may be more the exception than the norm.
    • only 3 were under 25, and 4 were 25-35. Turns out, over 40 had the most (5).
    • And race/culture had 8 whites, and 4 immigrants - 2 latino and 2 asian — which probably means immigrants were over-represented. Blacks were under-represented, but this is a pretty small sample, and DC snipers were black.
  • Politics:
    • I’m not particularly fascinated with the politics of crazies, most aren’t doing it for political reasons. But the media (FakeNews) loves to spin with front page "crazy right wing zealots”, then have back page retractions (if any) when they are wrong. So I wanted to double-check and if there was any correlation. Not much, and the opposite of their spin: about 1/2 seem left. With half the rest hinting at it (from blue states, cultural groups or jobs). Few seem to be overtly conservative. The few that do leave political manifesto’s like Ted Kaczynski, James J. Lee (Green Activist), Seung-Hui Cho (Virginia Tech shooter), all seem to leave far-left ones. Dylan Roof may be an exception. But I don’t see a strong pattern, except the left should probably stop spinning, as the truth looks worse for their side.
  • Gun Control Laws had no effect:
    • Gun Free Zones were popular places to go (over half) - who knew mass murders wouldn’t respect signs telling them not to bring guns where they wanted to kill people?
    • Many were legally acquired pistols in strict gun-control states
    • Only 4 used "Assault Style" rifles -- and every one had pistol or shotgun as backup, or illegal explosives, armor, fires, etc., which do more damage in close quarters anyways
