The Killings Of 2019

As the year come to an end we should look back at 2019 and the record setting year for mass shootings.

It all began just 19 days into the New Year….

The first one occurred 19 days into the new year when a man used an ax to kill four family members including his infant daughter. Five months later, 12 people were killed in a workplace shooting in Virginia. Twenty-two more died at a Walmart in El Paso in August.

A database compiled by The Associated Press, USA Today and Northeastern University shows that there were more mass killings in 2019 than any year dating back to at least the 1970s, punctuated by a chilling succession of deadly rampages during the summer.

In all, there were 41 mass killings, defined as when four or more people are killed excluding the perpetrator. Of those, 33 were mass shootings. More than 210 people were killed.

Sadly it is NO longer shocking…..even sadder is that these killings have become common place and in doing so has become a so-so event……even the MSM does not dwell on the shootings as it once did.

The new year and the new decade may prove to be yet another record setting time for our gun violence and mass killings.

It is truly sad.

  1. From the most recent one at the church it seems the most effective way to reduce these shootings is when armed citizens kill the shooter. The shooter won’t kill anymore and the shooters are culled from society. Better than any rhetoric or laws.

    1. I disagree….I do not trust a civilian to have the guts to do anything but cower…..that is just more chest thumping that is nothing but bravado. chuq

      1. I know the “civilians” here in North Carolina would not cower but act decisively to save lives. I wonder every Sunday if someone will burst into our little church of two dozen on a good day and open fire. My only conclusion is that it would be the most blessed and welcoming departure and entrance into the Kingdom except from my own bed rather than in hospice or hospital.

      2. Do not believe it… civilian is capable of making a good call on who is to die….they may threaten but when the time comes to pull the trigger they will freeze4…..and then they can enter the so-called Kingdom. chuq

  2. I was talking about this last night, wondering when the first ‘mass shooting’ of 2020 will happen. Strange to think that there is someone out there making plans for it as I type.
    Best wishes, Pete.
