Most Mass Shooters Pass the FBI Background Check
Since criminals, by nature, are not law-abiding, new gun controls will be ignored by the same demographic that has been ignoring the old gun controls for decades. This highlights the foolishness of pushing more gun control in the wake of a high profile crime…
Firearms acquired via background checks were used in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High attack, Texas church attack (November 5, 2017), Las Vegas attack (October 1, 2017), Alexandria attack (June 14, 2017), Orlando attack (June 12, 2016), San Bernardino attack (December 2, 2015), Colorado Springs attack (October 31, 2015), Umpqua Community College attack (October 1, 2015), Alison Parker attack (August 26, 2015), Lafayette movie theater attack (July 23, 2015), Chattanooga attack (July 16, 2015), Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal attack (Jun 17, 2015), Muhammad Carton Contest attack (May 3, 2014), Santa Barbara attack (May 23, 2014), Fort Hood attack (April 2, 2014), Arapahoe High School attack (December 13, 2013), D.C. Navy Yard attack (September 16, 2013), Aurora movie theater attack (July 20, 2012), Gabby Giffords attack (January 8, 2011), Fort Hood attack (November 5, 2009), and the Virginia Tech attack (April 16, 2007), among many others.
It is nearly impossible to think of a single high profile shooting of recent memory where the attacker did not acquire his guns via a background check. The exception to this is the individual who attacked Sandy Hook Elementary School (December 14, 2012). That attacker circumvented the background check system by stealing his guns, from someone who passed checks for them, then killing that individual before going to the school to kill 26 more.
