    First Total War game I've been able to really get into in a decade. I wanted to like Shogun 2 but for some reason that game just didn't draw me in. Ditto for Rome 2. And Warhammer with all the...

    Say what?
    None of those links has anything to do with the Vegas shooting being a hoax. Such a weird thing for you to declare with apparently no evidence other than your imagination.

    Re: Coward Murders Children in Florida

    Wow
    This type of denialism is crazy.
    Now, these shootings don't even exist, they were apparently faked like the moon landing and the round earth.

    Its what you are implying. You are implying all these killings would be just as deadly with knives as with guns.

    So now you admit that guns are almost always more effective killing weapons than...

    Coward Murders Children in Florida

    I disagree its useless. Since the price of AR15s has dropped to about $400-450 with bullets less than 30 cents AR15s have been increasingly used in mass shootings. And many of those incidents they...
