No, the United States Doesn't Lead the World in Mass Shootings; Here's the Real Data

Matt Margolis : Aug 5, 2019  PJMedia.com

"Unlike Lankford, we took a lot of time to find all the foreign cases we could. We even got translators to identify cases. Using the same definition of mass public shooters that Lankford used ... We found that he grossly under-counted foreign attacks. Of the 86 countries, where we've identified that any mass public shootings occurred, the US ranks 62nd." -Excerpt from John Stossel TV video

[PJMedia.com] As expected, Democrats immediately began politicizing the shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. Quite a few of them even blamed Trump. Like clockwork, calls for more gun control have commenced. Democrats are even trying to pressure Mitch McConnell to cancel the Senate recess so they can vote on gun control.

A common myth you can expect to hear a lot in the coming days and weeks is that the United States "leads the world in mass shootings" and therefore we must pass some law that will do nothing to stop future mass shootings, but will infringe on the rights of law-abiding gun owners.

What you might not hear is that this claim is completely bogus.

Sure, if you following conservative media, you're probably aware of this. Townhall, The Daily Signal, Bearing Arms, FEE, The Washington Examiner, and others have all previously reported on how the myth that the United States leads the world in mass shootings is based on a deeply flawed study, which has been debunked by the Crime Prevention Research Center.

Yet, the myth remains alive and is sure to be regurgitated endlessly again. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
