2-3 deaths is more like a family tragedy than a mass shooting.
I can think of more mass shootings where the victims were black, than where the murderer was black. Dylann Roof's victims, for example, who were killed during a church service.
Suicides are mostly among supposedly “strong” men, who haven’t been taught to seek help when they are depressed. Some of them take their family with them in death, as they see the family as their property, an extension of themselves. The thinking of people as property seems to be more common among conservatives and Republican voters.
Crime rates as high as London? London, England or London, Texas?
People usually vote for parties that have shown they are on your side. Unless you’re a poor Republican, then you just swallow the lies they tell you, and get screwed over, again.
