    And here you have a study that points out that mass killings are not on the rise.....so of course, the gun control left will stop demanding banning rifles and magazines...right?

    Study Finds Mass Killings Not On The Rise Over Past Decade

    Research by of University of Illinois professor has revealed a surprising trend about mass murder in the United States.

    Contrary to what you might think, mass murders are not on the rise, according to computer science professor Sheldon Jacobson.

    Jacobson said there were 323 such killings – in which four or more people are killed in one incident – between January 2006 and October 2016. The mass killings appeared to be evenly distributed over that time, meaning their rate remained stable over the past decade, and did not spike during any particular season or year.

    “The data doesn’t lie. The rate of these events just is not increasing as the perception is given in the media. This is just what it is,” he said.

    The professor used a decade’s worth of data from USA Today that was cross-checked by the FBI. He said his analysis also found public shooting sprees like the Las Vegas massacre are not the most common type of mass killing.

    Better point: Mass Killers will use bombs, more effective. Also, the Constitution remains(.)
