I know, I know, anti-gunners have to lie about gun statistics...mass public shooting data is just one of their lies....

A look at why the anti-gun fanatics keep trying to claim there are dozens, if not hundreds of mass public shootings......when the truth is they are the rarest of rare events....

On Monday, NPR claimed that the terrible shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas was the 27th school shooting of 2022 (this report insults the intelligence of listeners like you). But Robby Soave reports that the statistic doesn’t exactly tell the truth.

You may have seen the claim that Uvalde is the 27th (!) school shooting this year. This is misleading. The other 26 were mostly incidents in parking lots or at sports games where one or zero people were shot. Still bad! But not *mass* casualty events.

He points out that the reason for hyping such big numbers and making it sound like the loss of life in South Texas is the norm is mixing up three terms that the media conflates: school shooting, mass shooting, and mass school shooting. They do all sound similar, but there are distinctions.

This is a typical lefty tactic that works well with their ignorant voter masses that rarely look past the MSM headline to find the truth.
School shootings are just totally deranged psychos looking for a soft target of opportunity & gun free school zones with open doors look like easy prey to a sick mind seeking attention.
The vast majority of gun related mass casualty events are gang related & the chances of being involved in a gun crime shrinks to near zero if you aren't involved in drugs or gangs.
But they know the low info sheeple can be manipulated into a herd of fear if they apply pressure at the right points.
For Dems, emotional appeals, no matter how irrational, drive them like lemmings from a cliff.

27 school shootings in 5 months is described as "bad"..... wow. I guess the deaths of those kids was also "bad".

I suppose we can thank leftist hacks like 'Chuckles' Schumer who blocked a school safety bill last week.

Let's understand that leftist hacks are far more concerned with stripping 2A rights than safeguarding the lives of children.

Have you given your "thoughts and prayers" speech yet?

Neither does your stupidity.
I see you're angry and emotive but you seem befuddled about why leftist creeps such as Chuckles Schumer blocked a school safety bill.

The Left had their Covid panic and it looks like the Right might be all in with "make our schools into fortresses!"

Same disease, different manifestations

If that's true, then normal citizens don't need guns for self defence.
Wrong because the people involved with drugs commit crimes against "normal" citizens all the time.

WOW! with only 5% of the world's population, 31% of all mass shootings happen in the USA, wonder why that is? Maybe it's because they give out permits like confetti to anyone with only cursory background checks. Sad.
If everyone had the Right to drive whatever they want, as fast as they want, on any side of the road as they want, casualties would be off the scale.

Same with the 2A, hence the high gun shootings and deaths. The pro 2A's always cite dubious claims from pamphlets and dodgy sites. They like to twist figures and get really excited if another country has an incident.

The American forefathers did a disservice to the US population by signing the 2A into the constitution.

We have 2A rights to fight against a corrupt & despotic govt first & self defense second.
Most citizens will never have to use a gun for defense but many correctly realize it's better to have a gun & never need it than need a gun but never have one.

Maybe if you lived in a country with a right to self defense you'd understand.
Nice try proggy
