Exactly how many bullets did he shoot? how many of them were deadly?

Or not. Maybe this is more important:
But the truth is that there's still about 20 mass killings every year in this country, and that has been true for decades. There are about 100 to 150 victims of mass murder. Now that sounds terrible, and it is. It's tragic. But keep in mind that that number pales against the some 15,000 single-victim homicides in this country on an annual basis, and that's really where the problem lies.

That's five 9/11-scale tragedies every year. Just one lead a wholesale compromise of our civil liberties: Gitmo, torture, secret wiretapping, secret kill lists. But for some reason the second amendment is the only right on which no compromise is possible.
I share everyone's sadness over the most recent mass killing. And if it shocks the public into taking gun violence seriously, that would be a good thing. But forgive me if I sound insensitive here, but where is your outrage the other 345 days of the year?
