The Facts About Mass Shootings.

"En bon français, c'est claire comme de l'eau de roches." Anybody with half a brain should get this... Read the following article by John Fund.

Media and incompetent governments need to stop scaring society and especially our children into being victims of criminals who don't give a damn about gun laws or any other law for that matter.

It’s time to address 
mental health and gun-free zones.

....Mass shootings are no more common than they have been in past decades, despite the impression given by the media.

....Incidents of mass murder in the U.S. declined from 42 in the 1990s to 26 in the first decade of this century.

....The chances of being killed in a mass shooting are about what they are for being struck by lightning.

...."Guns are already banned in schools. That is why the shootings happen in schools. A school is a ‘helpless-victim zone,’” says Richard Mack, a former Arizona sheriff. “Preventing any adult at a school from having access to a firearm eliminates any chance the killer can be stopped in time to prevent a rampage,”

....The Cinemark Theater the killer ultimately chose wasn’t the closest, but it was the only one that posted signs saying it banned concealed handguns carried by law-abiding individuals.

....Both criminals and the criminally insane have shown time and time again that those laws are the least of the problems they face as they carry out their evil deeds.

Ban Guns, Increase Gun Crime!

"In 1996, there was a shooting at a primary school in Scotland. 16 children ages 5-6 were killed, along with one teacher. The following year, the UK banned the private ownership of all cartridge ammunition handguns, regardless of calibre. There have been no school shootings since."

Have you taken a look at what happened to the overall crime rate in the UK after gun bans went into effect? Gun crime increased by 89% between 1998 and 2009. In some parts of the country, the number of offences has increased more than five-fold. In eighteen police areas, gun crime at least doubled. The Metropolitan Police now has replaced some of the famously unarmed "Bobbies" with armed patrols on some streets and officers armed with "sub-machine guns" are engaged in routine policing for the first time.

"Whatever Power"

When I read the article linked in the title, 
one line struck out at me.....

".....Mr. Lanza shot himself as the police were closing in, suggesting that he may have intended to take more lives had he not been interrupted."

What if... he was "interrupted" sooner :-(

Hat Tip to AngryMike for the pics.
