Am disappointed you did not get the key data from 30 years of factual history. No notions needed. Over 40% of all mass shootings were due to mental illness and were random and unpredictable.
That is OK. You are entitled to be selective in your interpretations and for that you do not need data.2 crazy shootings per year on average is indeed abnormal and availability of guns freely to any one is deemed the physical tool helping the mentally ill.But National Rifle Association is more powerful lobby than any other in the US. The Congress is scared of NRA and gun banning is beyond their guts for 200 years.Their reelection is more important to them than being NRA targetted victim!
The “gasping elephant” is how HSBC, the global banking giant, described the state of the Indian economy. The analogy could not have been more apt. It is easy to picture an elephant struggling to pull an ever-increasing load piled on by the country’s cruel political masters. The elephant is now gasping as well as flagging.
The problem is that the elephant’s mahouts are unable to maintain equilibrium between its pulling capacity and its ever-increasing load of budget deficits, subsidies and freebies. The load has been growing faster and faster thanks to the culture of free lunches nurtured by the country’s political leadership.
How freebie culture is killing our economy
Every indication suggests that the elephant is slowing, if not headed for a grinding halt. Latest economic statistics show that the country’s growth rate has plummeted to 5.3 per cent in the quarter January-March 2012, which is the slowest in nine years. http://t.in.com/0yYr
