While the left scream about “gun control,” “assault weapons ban,” “ban high-capacity magazines” and “red flag laws” in an attempt to end gun violence, their “truth” about gun control laws and mass shooting doesn’t align with the facts.
Libtards’ narrative: To scare people into believing we need gun control now, the Washington Post published the following list of the names of mass shooting victims:
The total number of victims on the list is 1,196 during the past 54 years. That averages out to 22 victims per year.
The fact: Statistically, one’s chance of ending up a victim of mass shooting is much lower than getting in a car accident. The numbers are also much, much lower than the total number of babies killed by abortions or opioid deaths.
Libtards’ narrative: Yesterday, Shannon Watts (Bloomberg’s gun control parrot) tweeted the following about how Colorado prevented another mass shooting with their background check law:
“A Boulder white supremacist was stopped from buying a gun because a background check determined he was a prohibited purchaser. After Columbine, Colorado began requiring background checks at gun shows. In 2013, it required them on online gun sales, too.”
The fact: The man attempted to buy from a FFL. All sales by licensed dealers in all states require background checks. Colorado’s universal background check law had no bearing on this case. Read about Colorado’s background check laws – and their minimal impact – here.
Libtards’ narrative: #GunControlNow! It’s for the children! #GunControlNow! Enough is enough! #GunControlNow! Ban weapons of war! #GunControlNow!
Fact: You can never make enough laws to guarantee good behavior from people who are willing to break the law. See the following:
2 Dead, at Least 41 Wounded in Weekend Shootings Across Chicago (Final weekend numbers: 4 killed, 43 shot in Chiraq)
This is Chiraq: 8 killed, 40 wounded during another weekend of violence
This is Chiraq: 43 shot (2 killed) during weekend violence
This is Chiraq: 45 shot – 4 fatally – during weekend violence
After most deadly weekend of violence this year, Chiraq still racking up the shootings
Gun control, Chiraq style: 44 shot – 8 fatally – since Friday night
If the gun control laws on record already worked, then why do the left need to produce false/misleading narratives? We all know the answer to that:
