For every 20 kids that die in a mass shooting, theres hundreds of mainly black and hispanic male gang members who both kill and are killed
Dirk, the problem with this argument (which sounds rather heartless, tbh) is that regular people usually stay away from neighbourhoods where there are some kind of gang wars going on (in Chicago it's apparently near the south side of the city?), unless they're unlucky enough to live there.
But as far as mass shootings done by psychos are concerned - it can happen anywhere. You won't know what place to avoid. You would have to stay put at your house and not go anywhere - not send your children to school, highschool, university, not go to the cinema, to a club to have some fun, to a concert, to the church, etc.
It's not only about numbers of people killed but about the sense of security and psychological comfort.
It's the same with terrorist attacks in Europe. More people die in car accidents or from smoking or whatever than in those terror acts but you guys make a big deal out of it. And the media make a big deal out of it. Because it's not only about the numbers, but about the sense of security, it's about being able to go about your everyday lives, about going to a shop to buy groceries or to a cafe to drink some coffee with your friends without the fear of getting a round of bullets in your body or of being blown up into pieces.
You could argue in boh cases (mass shootings and terrorist attacks) that it's about "feelings and emotions" and not about "reality, facts, statistics, logic".
Both are unpredictable and can happen pretty much everywhere, it's difficult to predict and counter them and both induce fear, terror and panic in ordinary people who are just going about their daily lives and minding their own business...
