There Had Been Forty-One Large Scale Massacres in the U.S., with the Media Slowly Stopping to Pay Attention, an All-Time High of Thirty-Three Cases, with the Media, Leveling Off Their Attention

What exactly, IS the cause of this “hike”, waive aside the second amendment rights, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Before the year 2019 is about to be over, the Associated Press posted its statistic findings on massacres, and it showed, that the cases of larger scale massacres had reached an all-time high in American history, with the primary weapons of assault used being guns.

The large scale massacre, by definition, is a massacre of more than four deaths, not counting the shooter.  The old record was the thirty-eight cases back in 2006, and this year, there had been, forty-one large scale massacres across the U.S., with over 211 fatalities, and of these, thirty-three were gun related.

Although the large scale murders in U.S. had reached an all-time high this year, but the fatalities still fell short of 2017.  Back then, there were, 224 who’d died, the massacre at the concert in Las Vegas, was by far, the most serious massacre in U.S. history.

There’s, another trend, most of the larger-scale massacres are, no longer under the attention of the media anymore, unless, the murders happened in public, then, it would, get the needed, airtime.

The numbers also showed, that the shooters of these massacres knew their victims, and the motives of the shootings are usually related to family disputes, drugs, gang violence, or the conflicts between coworkers, and relatives and friends.  But there were, the motives of some cases that still need to get cleared, for instance, at the start of the year, a 42-year-old man from Oregon hacked his own mother, stepfather, his girlfriend, and nine-months-old young daughter to death, and was shot to death by the police, and, the police still can’t find the motives of his murdering his next-of-kin.

Guns are the weapons that had caused the most number of deaths, and there were the hatchets, the machetes, and the arsons.

The professor of criminology from the University of Minnesota believed, that these large-scale massacres are, “contagious”, the more frequently occurring they are, there would be, more cases like them.

And so, violence breeds violence is what this showed, and, because there’s NO ban on the right to own gun (second amendment, anyone???), and, a lot of Americans are, gun-loving people, that’s why, there are, many cases, and especially now, how easily people crack, that’s why, there is, this influx of larger scale massacres this year.

Guns Fired Off Outside Texas A&M, Resulting in Two Deaths Ten Injuries

Tragedies that occurred, at a celebratory event, the homecoming party, and there were, fatalities, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

On the evening of the 26th in Texas, a man started shooting at random at a party close to the Texas A&M Commerce campus, causing at least two fatalities, ten injuries, the suspect is still at large.

The school made its public statement early morning on the 27th, that the shooting did NOT occur on campus.  The local police said, that the party seemed to have been hosted by a fraternity to bring in the new school year, they’re currently trying to confirm, fi there were students who were injured or killed, along with the motives of the shooter.

The local news station reporter, Whiteley stated, that this shooting occurred in a local night club, The Party Venue, in the suburbs, outside Glennville, close to Huntsville County, which is quite close to the Texas A&M in Commerce.

and here’s a video from the local news stations, from YouTube

The local sheriff’s department’s deputy chief stated, that there were about 750 people inside the night club, and that the homecoming party may have been hosted by a fraternity of the Texas A&M, but it wasn’t, a registered activity with the schools.

The spokesperson for the school, Johnson stated, “Our hearts go out to the victims of the shooting, we’re, praying for them”, and the statement also said, that Texas A&M is now, working hand in hand with the police locally to investigate the matter, to confirm if the students at A&M had been shot or not.  The police is currently investigating.

The police department of Texas A&M tweeted, that the shooting occurred outside the school, and that there may be students who attend A&M present at the time of the shooting, they’re, looking further into the matter right now.

The Party Venue’s FB page stated, that they only provided the space.  The owner of the night club stated, that the Business Department’s Fraternity had asked to rent out the space, to host a party.  And that something had, happened there.  But gave no more details.

The Dean of the Business Department of Texas A&M tweeted, that this was the weekend before the students were starting school, the local medical center told CNN earlier, that they did, receive the injured, but nobody provided the total number of people who’d been injured, nor the details of how the injuries had, occurred.

This may have been, yet, ANOTHER randomized shooting, and, that’s just it, the shooters, because they wanted to cause injuries, damages on a grander scale, are more than likely, to target these events, where there are, people who are, attending, like this particular, homecoming party, and that’s just it, the world became, more dangerous, because there are always going to be those, ticking time bombs, waiting to explode, and when the individuals were pushed to CRACK, this, is what happens, and it will, keep on happening, partially because gun is so accessible in the U.S.

In a Five-Car Chase, Guns Were Fired, the Bullets Ricocheted and Injured a Couple

Caught, in the crossfires, at the wrong place, at the wrong time! From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A couple in the midnight hours of last night, rode together on a scooter, waited for the lights to change in Sinchuang District of Hsinbei City, suddenly, guns went off, the couple were both, injured by bullets that ricocheted; the police chased the leads, and arrested five men including Lee, found that the two groups had, started chasing and gunning each other down on the streets, because, a member had, gone in to the wrong karaoke bar room, the police is currently, chasing other possible suspects.

At 1:56 in the morning last night, the thirty-one year-old man, Lin took his girlfriend, Jiang (age 23), waited for the lights at the MRT Chien-Zhuang Station, suddenly, the cars approached them from behind, then, three loud bangs, the five cars left one by one. Both of the couple felt that sudden pain, as they parked by the side of the road to check themselves, Lin’s thigh, and Jiang’s calf, were grazed by ricocheted bullets, they’d gone to the hospital to get treated, then, called the police.

The police reviewed the street surveillance, zoomed in on the cars, and started chasing them, in the karaoke bar located on Zhonghwa Road in Sinchuang, they’d, found the three men who were, driving in the cars, then, made two arrests later.

The preliminary investigations showed, that the shooting occurred, in the midnight hours of the 19th, after a fight broke out at the karaoke bar, the two parties met up for confrontation afterwards. The 23-year-old Lee, and four of his friends rode out on two cars to the confrontation, on the way, Lee found the three cars that belonged to the others, started chasing them, to the location where the shots were fired, the other car suddenly, opened fire three times as Lee was waiting for the lights, and, one of the bullets ricocheted off the pavement, and grazed the couple on the scooter, injured them both.

And so, the couple that were “shot” were, in the wrong place, AT the wrong time, and this still just showed, how there’s, a need, for stricter gun control laws, because you do NOT want people with guns, running loose, and shooting at each other, injuring, the innocent bystanders, would you? I wouldn’t, think so!

Trump Stated that the School Teachers Should Start Carrying Guns, the Parents Were Angered by His Statements

The PRESIDENT of the U-N-I-T-E-D S-T-A-T-E-S, had BLURTED something OUT, without having the THOUGHT run through his HEAD again, I’m afraid!!! And he still couldn’t, make UP his mind of which side to STAND at!!! With MY opinions on the matter inputted, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

In the seventeen deaths middle school shooting in Florida on the fourteenth, President Trump saw about forty students, teachers and parents on the twenty-first, including the six survivors of the shooting. They’d begged Trump to “Do something about it”, to prevent similar cases from happening repeatedly in school, Trump promised to have the stricter background checks for gun purchases, and even brought up the thought, of having the school teachers armed, to have the teachers also carry guns in the classes, but last year, a parent of the student who’d died in the Florida middle school shooting rebutted, “How many students need to die under a gun?”

gettng questioned on the policies he set up for gun control, photo from online…

In this nearly one-hour long meeting, Trump was focused in listening to the demands of the students and parents saying how the security needs to be reinforced in the schools, how there needs to be more drills, and to up the age of buying the weapons too. But Trump replied as he had before, that he was for owning a gun, to protect the people themselves, to SHOOT the shooters first.

The student who’d died in the shooting, Pollack’s father, Drew told Trump, that his daughter got shot NINE times then died on the day, “That is why I’m here”, he’d asked Trump, “How many schools, how many students need to be under attack? This needs to stop now. If there’s no change, I won’t ever stop.”

Trump stressed, in the future, “We will do a very strict background check, and focus on the gun purchasers’ state of mind,” he’d also mentioned, that it’s needed, for some of the school teachers, to train to use a gun, to scare off the possible shooters.

Trump said, “If the school teachers have the licenses to carry the concealed weapons, then, they will be trained, especially, and there wouldn’t be a gun-free zone in the schools.” Trump believed, that banning all guns from the schools will only worsen the matter, he said, “the gun prohibited zones means, ‘let’s go in and shoot everybody inside’.”

Trump said, take for instance, the Florida middle school shooting, “if there was a teacher trained to use gun, then, it’s easy, to disarm the shooter quickly.” But Trump also admitted, that it’s debatable, the thought, of having the school teachers bear arms.

And so, here, you can see, how this is all, the American President’s one-man-SHOW, he’d stated an idea, and, someone from the audience (a parent whose child had died) challenged his thought, Trump fended for his idea, and, then agreed, with the parents’ views on how it wouldn’t be SOUND, having the school instructors armed. And from this, we can see??? How easily businessmen change their minds, and, how AWFUL it’s gonna get, for the LAND of the FREE, to live under, “King TRUMP”!!!

After a Swiss Man Gunned Down His In-Laws, His Wife’s Younger Brother-in-Law, the Neighbor, He’d Committed Suicide

This, is TRULY SHOCKING, in ONE of the world’s HAPPIEST nations too!  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Happiest Country in the World Has Over a MILLION Guns

A thirty-six year-old Swiss man on the ninth, gunned down his parents-in-law, his wife’s brother-in-law, and a neighbor, then, committed suicide.  The police quickly ruled this incident out as a terrorist attack, but a domestic tragedy.  Just last month, Switzerland was voted as the “World’s Happiest Nation”, and, this murder-suicide had shocked the entire nation, and, some attributed the events to how guns are in excess.

The murder happened in the city of Verenigingen, close to Zurich, the suspect was a father of three, but he didn’t live with his family, the police said, that he didn’t have a license for a gun.  The suspect first, broke into a resident, gunned down his fifty-eight year-old father-in-law, fifty-seven year-old mother-in-law, and his thirty-two year-old brother-in-law, then, broke into another resident, gunned down a forty-six year-old neighbor, then, committed suicide.

The suspect had a prior in violence, lived alone in the state over.  He was under investigation, after a 2007 confrontation when he’d caused someone to get injured, and in 2012, he was arrested for using verbal threats on someone.  Before the murders on the 9th, the wife and children of the suspect had moved out, and entered into a shelter already.

Last November, a similar incident happened in Switzerland too.  And this time, this massacre had caused a huge ripple in the originally peaceful Switzerland, the local papers wrote: “Impossible, after all, we are the world’s happiest, richest country.”

Based off of estimation, there are a total of 4.5 million guns floating arou9nd in Switzerland, and the number of guns owned in Switzerland is among the tops of the world, second only to the U.S., Yemen, and Serbia.

And so, you have to wonder, even IF this was only an ISOLATED incident, why, is it, that the world’s happiest nation would own the greatest number of guns?  And, this, may only BE a dispute in the family that went wrong, but, it still raised concerns for the world.

Guns as “Toys” for Children…

You DO realize, how this would constitute as NEGLECT, right???

Parents are leaving those guns, UNLOCKED, outside of those combination safes, and across the kitchen counter, I’m thinkin’…

Guns as “toys” for children, this, is what’s happening, in the homes across America, because, we are ALL Second Amendment or NRA (National Rifle Association???) supporters, right?

Guns as “toys” for children, this, is really dangerous, because that two, three, four, five, OR six year old child doesn’t KNOW that the guns are loaded, and, tragedies like that little third-grade boy, shooting his little ten-year-old girl classmate is bound to repeat itself, and all of this still happens because?  Oh yeah, you GOD DAMN F***ING stupid PARENTS are way too CARELESS!

Guns as “toys” for children why don’t you just hand that kid who’s BORED out of her/his bones a grenade, with the safety pin pulled out?

The Double-Parked Motorcycle Incident Turned into a Gunfight with Injuries & Deaths

So, things just exacerbated, did it now???  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A man, Chang rode on his motorcycle with his daughter on the back, passed through the Airport check station in Taichung, and because he was pulled over for not wearing his helmet, he’d gotten into a physical altercation with the officer on duty, Kang, they got into a fist fight, Kang’s gun fell to the ground, and, Chang took it from the ground, and fired off twelve shots uncontrollably, and the flying bullets grazed a passerby’s buttocks, in the end, Chang was shot to death by the airport security officer who came to backup the calls; the young child who bore witness to her father going crazy, was shaken up really badly, and she’d been placed into foster care by the social workers now.

The very FIRST airport shooting occurred at two thirty yesterday afternoon, Chang (age 45), rode his ten-year-old daughter across the flight stations in Taichung, mumbled on how he was taking her by flight, and because he wasn’t wearing a helmet when he rode his motorcycle, and was doubleparked on the streets, the airport security officer, Kang came to check, and Chang pulled his child onto the freeways, Kang tried to stop him, and, Chang swung at him, and hit his nose.

The two men got into a fist fight, and, as the officer was about to pull the stick, he was pushed to the ground, then, kicked continuously, and, as the officer was pulling the gun out, it accidentally got out of his hands, and Chang took the gun, closed his eyes, lowered his head, and started firing off the shots like crazy.

“Bang-Bang-Bang!”, the gunshots went off, a woman, He, who just got off the flight from Hong Kong, was just walking out of the airport, was shot in the buttocks, she’d fallen over and started screaming in pain, and the bullets had passed through the cars parked by the freeways, and into the buildings of the airport too.  The counter clerk lady started screaming too, the passengers started running all over the places like crazy, and, there was blood, everywhere, outside.

“It’s like a gunfight from the movies, happening, right in front of my eyes”, a passenger who was still shell-shocked told, back then, he was using his cell phone, he saw officers running outside, and saw how Chang had the gun in his right hand, and, the officers from the opposite side of the street could do nothing, then, he’d heard continuous shots; two officers fired off at Chang, and, Chang fell to the ground.

The hospitals said, that before Chang arrived, he was already dead, that there were four entry wounds, on the upper side of his abdomen, the left side of his chest, the right of his head, and at his abdomen, that although they’d trached him immediately, but, at three-thirty in the afternoon, he was, pronounced dead.

There was a one centimeter through-and-through wound on He’s buttocks, she was sent into emergency operation, He’s mother said, that right after her daughter got off her flight, she’d gotten caught, in the crossfires, but gladly, the female security guard, Kang took her into the terminal, and gave her emergency treatments, that it’s bad enough that this happened, that neither one of them blamed anybody; the terminator police officer, Kang was shot on his wrist, abrasions on his knees, and, his nose was punched.

The police department head, Huang reported, that Chang had used up all of his twelve bullets inside the casings, and one of the bullets jammed, and the two officers who were called to the backup had shot Chang fourteen times.

He said, that the officer who was shot, Kang had been an officer for about twenty years, that six month ago, he’d transferred to Kaohsiung from Taichung, and, last month because he was able to catch a smuggler, he was commended on; and this time, because he’d tried to stop Chang, and was attacked, wanted to use the gun, but it felt to the ground, that it wasn’t Officer Kang’s fault.

Chang’s ex-wife and younger sister went to the morgue to identify him, Chang’s ex-wife was very stable, without a word; the younger sister said, that a little over two months ago when she’d talked to him on the phones, she didn’t know that he was divorced.

And the young girl, at the time the gun fight was occurring, ducked down by her father’s motorcycle, she witnessed her father getting shot and killed, she was dumbfounded.  The child said, that back then, her father was on the way to see a friend but couldn’t get in touch with the friend, said that he’s going to take her on the airplanes, she didn’t know, that her father was going to shoot people, she’d hid behind the motorcycle, closed her eyes through the entire thing, didn’t know her father was dead, just kept saying, “I’m so scared.”

So, this man just started shooting, and, something MUST have been going on, and, him getting pulled over was just that last domino that fell, causing everything ELSE to crumble down, and him to crack.
