Several people were shot in Chicago over weekend, but very few died. Isn't that typical of handgun shootings vs assault rifles favored by?
...most mass shooters?

Yes. They were talking about that on NBC Nightly news tonight. A handgun just typically creates a hole. The weapons used in the last mass shootings made wounds that you would expect to see on a battlefield.

Depending on the handgun, yes. Assault weapons are specifically designed to kill human beings, as opposed to other guns, which do a lot of different things. The high muzzle velocity and ammo used in assault weapons like the AR15 do exceptional amounts of damage to the human body. Other guns generally aren't as damaging.

Very poor conclusion. The mass shooter wants revenge on society. Do you seriously believe that someone who feels crazy like that, wouldn’t think of gasoline and a match. Do you believe they would decide not to take action if they couldn’t use an automatic rifle? So what to do, ban ALL guns? There must be 200,000 people that know how to make new ones. And the black market would profit for the high prices they could get. We call you snowflakes because you think it’s possible to ban devices that kill people. It’s this undisciplined society that has lost respect for life. How many Dems do you know that are happy?

Far more shootings occur in citiws like Chicago and Baltimore and other liberal cities than have happened in the mass shootings. Unfortunately the liberals don't see those killings worth mentioning.

No. Virginia tech. Over 30 dead.
Handguns account for almost 90% of gun related homicides.
If you look at most mass shootings you'll see that a lot of people get injured and don't die too

The gangsters here are armed with more than just semi-automatic pistols, buddy. They fully automatic pistols and even guns that count as submachine guns. Illegal weapons trades and shipments. They just don't have the money to make deals to get semi-automatic rifles regularly and drive-by shootings using a shotgun is only possible in the movies.

You obviously aren’t aware of the illegal guns gangs use.
