Emaho, invite Rihanna the teachers most important. The teachers out of compassion give us many methods. If your confidence is to go to the Western pure land, then that is wonderful.

Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

Even with your stats, these are relatively uncommon events - thats part of what makes them newsworthy. You're right, they are relatively uncommon events... in Australia, for example, where they had an extremely successful firearm ban and buyback, and where gun deaths dropped dramatically. In the US...
