2........

2 nuts, in the first 5 months of this year.........out of over 330 million Americans...

The source...Mother Jones Mass Public Shooting Data Base....


This time last year we had 5 out of the 6 for the year.

14 people killed so far.

Remember......Deer kill 200 people a year.

Ladders kill 300.....

Mother Jones' record of "mass shootings" isn't very exhaustive.

This month there was a day in Chicago where they had 2 mass shootings on a singled day.



And how about the Airbnb mass shooting in Pittsburgh last month? Again, not on the list.

No...which makes them even more dangerous....they kill without intent.......so you never know when they will attack...

Let the false flags begin so these morons who want the guns taken do their typical bs taking the guns, the dengerates will say “ they aren’t taking your guns” it’s the same story but what you losers don’t get they are taking so many other things that take away those rights you never fully get the reality of “ taking your guns” …

So yes they are going to try and take the guns again they working up to the TAKE OVER OF THE US

THEN YOU HAVE MAY 22ND ———————- they are telling you for a reason……and you aren’t even listening.

No.....what you don't understand is that Mother Jones uses the actual definition of Mass public shootings......the shootings you listed are not mass public shootings because they are gang or crime related.........

Here......their definition and the data base totals.....keep in mind, the total number of killed to qualify as a mass public shooting used to be 4, it is now 3....obama lowered the number because he wanted more shootings classified as mass public shootings...

US mass shootings, 1982–2022: Data from Mother Jones’ investigation

Dating back to at least 2005, the FBI and leading criminologists essentially defined a mass shooting as a single attack in a public place in which four or more victims were killed. We adopted that baseline for fatalities when we gathered data in 2012 on three decades worth of cases.
-------

  • Here is a description of the criteria we use:

    • The perpetrator took the lives of at least four people. A 2008 FBI report identifies an individual as a mass murderer—versus a spree killer or a serial killer—if he kills four or more people in a single incident (not including himself), typically in a single location. (*In 2013, the US government’s fatality baseline was revised down to three; our database reflects this change beginning from Jan. 2013, as detailed above.)
    • The killings were carried out by a lone shooter. (Except in the case of the Columbine massacre and the Westside Middle School killings, which involved two shooters.)
    • The shootings occurred in a public place. (Except in the case of a party on private property in Crandon, Wisconsin, and another in Seattle, where crowds of strangers had gathered, essentially constituting a public crowd.)
    • Crimes primarily related to gang activity or armed robbery are not included, nor are mass killings that took place in private homes (often stemming from domestic violence).
    • Perpetrators who died or were wounded during the attack are not included in the victim tallies.
    • We included a handful of cases also known as “spree killings“—cases in which the killings occurred in more than one location, but still over a short period of time, that otherwise fit the above criteria.
    ----------------------
Our research focused on indiscriminate rampages in public places resulting in four or more victims killed by the attacker. We exclude shootings stemming from more conventionally motivated crimes such as armed robbery or gang violence.


(Or in which the perpetrators have not been identified.) Other news outlets and researchers have since published larger tallies that include a wide range of gun crimes in which four or more people have been either wounded or killed. While those larger datasets of multiple-victim shootings are useful for studying the broader problem of gun violence, our investigation provides an in-depth look at a distinct phenomenon—from the firearms used and mental health factors to the growing copycat problem. Tracking mass shootings is complex; we believe ours is the most useful approach for studying this specific phenomenon.

The actual number of mass shootings from Mother Jones......

Here you go...the number of mass public shootings according to Mother Jones...rabid, anti gun, left wing news source.....not the NRA...

The list below comes from the old definition of 4 killed to make a shooting a mass shooting...if you now go to the link there are more than listed below...but that is because Mother Jones changed the list from the time I first posted it...and changed to obama's new standard of only 3 dead to make a mass shooting...

That shooting doesn't qualify as a mass public shooting...per the actual definition.

Yep...gang shootings, and two rival groups getting into an argument........these are not mass public shootings....different causes, different crimes......different solutions.

Once again a gun lover posts a half-truth, and when put forth the data of mass shootings in the link below, it provides enough evidence to support more mass shooting events are common in the United States than in any developed nation:

Moron.....I gave the actual link, and I even added up the totals for each year....

You are just mad because the truth is......mass public shootings are the rarest of rare events, with deer killing more people than mass public shooters each year...which is a hard statistic to use to push gun control...

Moron........I just posted the totals from every single year.......as I do most times morons like you go after Mother JOnes......

Notice....

A muslim terrorist in Nice, France used a rental truck to murder 86 people and injured 450....

That is more people killed in one attack than all but two years of mass public shootings in the U.S....another statistic that makes you look like an idiot....

"Moron"? It seems you are a damn liar and ignorant of what a half-truth is all about. It is what a Sophist does, Bozo!

The links within your link in the thread tell the entire truth of mass shootings in 36 states with details on the number of deaths and the name of the shooter between 1982 and today.

That shooting doesn't qualify as a mass public shooting...per the actual definition.
Certain qualifications to be considered as a mass shooting, apply in your fraternity.

Once again a gun lover posts a half-truth, and when put forth the data of mass shootings in the link below, it provides enough evidence to support more mass shooting events are common in the United States than in any developed nation:



And just to question your post......

What did I state that was a "half-truth?"

Everything in that first post is the whole truth....and I even provided a link to the Mother Jones data base where the data for all the other years is also found.....

YOu are such an idiot.
