The Liberal Media Won’t Tell You This About the Mass Shootings
Once again, sad to say, a mass shooting happens.
The liberal politicians scream for more gun control while the victims lie bleeding at the site.
The liberal media spins the incident to support the gun control agenda.
But what aren’t they telling you? If you listen to the liberal media, the solution to stop these shootings is simple.
What’s missing from the Main Stream Media accounts of these shootings is perspective,
There are about 319 million people in the United States, so that means there are about 118 million gun owners in this nation.
The “Mass Shooting Tracker” counts any incident where four or more people are shot, whether fatally or not, as a mass shooting. For 2015 so far, this tracker counts 294 incidents — of those, there are names for only 45 of the shooters, which leads me to believe the others are gang or crime related. But let’s assume for a moment all 294 shooters were actually law-abiding, legal gun owners.
That means, out of 118 million gun owners, 249 or .00025 percent of the gun-owning population are potential mass shooters.
If you listen to the liberal media, they lead you to believe that any gun owner is a potential mass shooter.
So the solution is simple.
Submit all gun owners to a background check and limit assault weapons.
Yet, would these laws prevented any of these mass shootings?
It’s insane thinking.
The cause of these mass shootings is complex.
Is easy access to guns a cause, or even a major contributing factor?
Or perhaps the easy access to guns has little impact.
Well, at least now you’re armed.
With the facts about how few gun owners use guns in mass shootings.
Isn’t trying to craft any law that predicts and prevents the .00025 percent of gun owners who might be a mass shooter just a dumb idea?
