Another Liberal canard has been bitten by the big, bad bug of hard data. We hear often on the news about how bad America is with guns, and if we would just give up our guns, the world would be a dreamy, peaceful place (I don’t have a gun myself). One of their scariest talking points, is all the mass shootings we have in America. Of course, even one murder from any source is terrible, but we don’t often hear the facts of the case, like that more people were killed by bare hands last year in America than by rifles.
Now a research paper by John R. Lott titled: “Comparing the Global Rate of Mass Public Shootings to the U.S.’s Rate and Comparing Their Changes Over Time” blows away the media myths regarding this subject, and shows that many other countries have higher rates of mass shootings than in America.
