The subject of what and whom
This one is from CNN. And there is one VERY interesting factor admitted within it:
Regardless, the three deadliest shootings in the U.S. have occurred in the past 10 years
The Orlando attack was by far the deadliest shooting in U.S. history (49 killed), and it is not even 10 years removed from the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre (32 killed), and the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting (27 killed). In fact, of the 30 deadliest shootings in the U.S. dating back to 1949, 16 have occurred in the last 10 years.
Okay, this was just mass shootings. What about things other than shootings? Oh, you know, about the only thing I can find is shootings. They don’t seem to want to put up much on truck bombs, or driving into crowds in a large vehicle, or at least not on the front pages. I’ll keep looking.
This one is interesting! You might want to check the statistics and locations. It only goes to 2012, but it’s an indicator.
And I think you’ll probably like this one. And then I found this one. This one quite disproves the misleading propaganda from our own demoncrap fanatics. And you are going to have to study the values in there. Again, this one is just about shootings, but it falls into a gutting of the numbers by one small values application:
The FBI definition of mass public shootings excludes “shootings that resulted from gang or drug violence” or that were part of some other crime. The FBI also defines “public” places as “includ[ing] commercial areas (divided into malls, businesses open to pedestrian traffic, and businesses closed to pedestrian traffic), educational environments (divided into schools [pre-kindergarten through 12th grade] and IHEs), open spaces, government properties (divided into military and other government properties), houses of worship, and health care facilities.” A report by the New York Police Department has a very similar definition. The 33 worst mass public shootings all have at least 15 people who were shot to death.
I’m going to stop now, I forgot to load my pill dispenser last night, and this is driving me nuts by it’s exclusivity on types of homicides OTHER than firearm.But I know I’ve got some dedicated readers who can fill in these blanks.
One point I will make. All the shootings pale in comparison to airplanes and truck bombs.
