The source is in my post. I make it 359 ISIS to 288 mass shootings.

Moving the goalposts yet again, Loz. You're not going to prove any points that way.

In any case, do organised terrorist killings in Europe have anything to do with gun violence in the US? No, I thought not. Does a greater number of killings elsewhere diminish the need for control in the US?

By the way, if availability of high-powered firearms isn't the problem, why were bump stocks banned following the Las Vegas massacre? Is killing just a few, not lots, of people OK? Try to detach yourself from your extreme position and see things logically and sensibly. Go on, just try.
Has banning bump stocks had any effect on the number of mass shootings in the US?

Ban bump stocks, they’ll use automatic weapons
Ban automatic weapons, they’ll tool up with semi automatic weapons
Ban all guns (which we’ve established will never happen) and people will run people down in trucks. Or use bombs, or whatever.

That’s the point in the in the Europe comparison, if people want to to commit mass murder, they’ll find a way of doing it.

You need to step up your analysis a bit; the last one in the list in the link you posted about ISIS showed 16 people killed but they were all ISIS members killed by security forces!

ISIS and Islam have nothing to do with the recent mass shootings in the USA, NOTHING, trying to compare them against each other is idiotic.

Do carry on
You have to, because if you include all mass shootings (+4 deaths) you find that most are carried out with pistols, or illegal weapons (try controlling them), are gang related and are not carried out by white nationalists. And then you find that more people are shot in a week in Baltimore than you'd care to mention.

So you're comparing an organised terrorist group with lone wolf crazy people who decide to go on a shooting spree. Good job. How many mass shootings have there been in Europe that weren't committed by terrorist organisations, compared to the US?

Why not compare the total number of people killed by American or NATO armed forces to the number of mass shootings in the US?

Daft. You really don't know when to give up on a losing cause and pull out, do you?

Indeed, add to that the title of the thread is " A shooting just happened" and ISIS rarely use guns!

Plus the elephant in the room is that there is no evidence that most of the attacks were really by ISIS; the IRA were much better at this because they claimed responsibility a short time before an attack, not jumping on the band wagon after the event.

Remind me again who started making the comparisons with other countries?

Oh yes, it was you.

Mostly.

Except for that vegan who shot-up the Youtube HQ (because YT had demonetized her channel).
