USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Have you noticed that only mass shooting where an AR patterned firearm is used are the only ones covered by the fake news, like CNN? The purpose of bending the coverage of shootings of all types is to move public opinion. Gun control is a political tool to scare suburban white women to vote for Democrats.
Here are the actual numbers and statistics for mass shooting in the US from 1998 through 2018.
Here are the three big TRUTHS the left is lying about.
- 78% of mass shooting do NOT use an “Assault Rifle”
- As a Percentage of the population, whites, and Hispanics are the LEAST likely to do a mass shooting.
- Gun Control laws have NO effect on mass shootings.
Only 15 of the 67 events involved an “AR patterned” firearm; they are used in less than 22% of mass shootings. Only 22% of all mass shooting used AR style rifles.
As a Percentage of the population, most shooters are of middle eastern descent.
As a percentage of the population, White and Hispanic are the least likely to commit a mass shooting.
The real issue is the ratio of mass shootings to population.
The actual percentage of the population in the US from the middle east is remarkably small. Their participation in mass shooting dwarfs all other groups.
Gun Laws Have No Effect On Mass Shootings
California and Florida both have the greatest number of mass shootings (6 each). The State, with the most restrictive gun laws and the State with the most open gun laws both suffered the same number of mass killings. Exclude the Pulse Night Club shooting, and CA has more casualties than Florida too.
So the left lies about mass shootings. Liberal politicians lie about mass shootings. Why do they lie? To scare suburban white women (who voted 51% for Trump) to be scared enough to vote against their interests and elect a Democrat.
I’d like to thank the Crime Prevention Center and Dr. John Lott for making the raw statistics available. If you have an opportunity, you can donate to them to help keep the facts and truth available to the common citizen. The left is entitled to its own opinion, not it’s own facts.
