    well david, look at it from Obama's and Feinstein's and Bloomberg's and Cuomo's point of view:
    ~13 million AR style rifles in the country. 3 people commit "mass" shootings with them. that's 0.00000023%. OMG! *FREAKOUT!** "BAN ALL THE THINGS!!"

    under that logic, if any more than 0.00000024% of these drug users and/or gamers commit any type of mass shooting, then the drugs and/or video games are to blame.
