Gun Control Groups Use Suicides To Inflate Number of ‘School Shootings’
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in American (MDA) and Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) are pushing a report that claims “44 school shootings” took place between December 15, 2012–the day after the heinous crime at Sandy Hook Elementary–and February 10, 2014.
They stress that 28 people were killed as a result of the attacks, while 37 others were wounded. To heighten the emotional impact of these numbers, MAIG “emphasized that one of these [school shootings] occurred every 10 days.”
What they don’t mention is that many of these “school shootings” were actually suicides with no one else around, or suicides that took place after hours when the campus was abandoned, or gang-related crimes that hyper-inflated the number of K-12 school shootings.
