New Research Completely Annihilates Pro-Gun Control Study Routinely Cited by Mainstream Media

Published

There are a lot of liberal, anti-gun talking points in favor of strict gun control that you hear almost constantly in the mainstream media, but none of them are more prevalent than the notion that mass shootings happen with more frequency here in the United States than they do in any other country in the world.

Well, as it turns out, new research has debunked the study that most of these gun control advocates cite when making this claim.

That study, published by criminologist Adam Lankford, claims the U.S. accounted for 31 percent of all public mass shootings between 1966 and 2012 in the world despite having less than 5 percent of the world’s population.

John. R. Lott Jr., president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, released a comprehensive study last week debunking the myth that mass shootings are a uniquely American problem.

He discovered that, over a 15-year period from 1998-2012, the U.S. accounted for less than 3 percent of the world’s public mass shootings and less than 2 percent of public mass shooters.

“By our count, the US makes up less than 1.43% of the mass public shooters, 2.11% of their murders, and 2.88% of their attacks. All these are much less than the US’s 4.6% share of the world population. Attacks in the US are not only less frequent than other countries, they are also much less deadly on average,” the study found.

One of the biggest problems with Lankford’s study, the CPRC alleges, is that Lankford was never honest about that data he included in his study, massively skewing its results.

From the CPRC:

Lankford’s study reported that from 1966 to 2012, there were 90 public mass shooters in the United States and 202 in the rest of world. We find that Lankford’s data represent a gross undercount of foreign attacks. Our list contains 1,448 attacks and at least 3,081 shooters outside the United States over just the last 15 years of the period that Lankford examined. We find at least fifteen times more mass public shooters than Lankford in less than a third the number of years.

Even when we use coding choices that are most charitable to Lankford, his 31 percent estimate of the US’s share of world mass public shooters is cut by over 95 percent.

What did Lankford have to say for himself after having his study thoroughly destroyed by real, legitimated facts?

“I am not interested in giving any serious thought to John Lott or his claims.”

In other words, since the truth does not cater to his own anti-gun prejudices, he has no interest in it whatsoever. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the left-wing brain put on full display.

This is the sort of thinking that is widespread in the progressive movement, the so-called party of “tolerance,” which is in reality, the LEAST tolerant group of people you’ll ever come across.

Powerful Moment As Hundreds of Jews Take to NYC Streets & Demand ‘OMAR MUST GO!’ (Watch)

WOW!

To say Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar is a friend of the Jews is like admitting Alec Baldwin does a good Trump impersonation on “Saturday Night Live.” It’s just not true, no matter how anyone attempts to spin it. In New York City, hundreds of Jews took to the streets to protest the embattled Congresswoman. Here’s the scoop… From Daily Wire: Hundreds of Jews gathered in Times Square in New York City on Monday evening to protest anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and chanted, “Omar must go!” “Following the highly-publicized allegations of the Minnesotan congresswoman’s antisemitism and her statement downplaying the 9/11 terrorist attacks, New York native and activist Joe Diamond organized a rally and billboard launch calling for her removal,” The Jerusalem Post reported. “Speakers at the event included former Democratic New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind and award-winning advocate of Christian Zionism Laurie Cardoza-Moore.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/HikindDov/status/1130940516810526720?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130940516810526720&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47516%2Fomar-must-go-hundreds-jews-gather-protest-ilhan-ryan-saavedra ANOTHER: https://twitter.com/HikindDov/status/1130583678545944577?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130583678545944577&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47516%2Fomar-must-go-hundreds-jews-gather-protest-ilhan-ryan-saavedra Apparently, Omar has been holding secret fundraisers with Islamic groups that are tied to terror. Makes you wonder, was Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro right when she said Omar wasn’t “America first?” Food for thought, at the very least. From Free Beacon: Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) has been holding a series of secret fundraisers with groups that have been tied to the support of terrorism, appearances that have been closed to the press and hidden from public view. […] Omar recently spoke in Florida at a private event hosted by Islamic Relief, a charity organization long said to have deep ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Israel. Over the weekend, she will appear at another private event in California that is hosted by CAIR-CA PAC, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR a group that was named as an…

Cruz Calls Out Carrey For Vile Abortion Painting, So Jim Reveals Another Painting Aimed At Ted

Jim Carrey must have A LOT of free time, these days.

After Republican Governor Kay Ivey signed Alabama’s strict new abortion bill into law, far-left radical Jim Carrey went berserk. He chooses, these days, to lash out via his paintings. Maybe he’s still upset he hasn’t had a hit film in years? Here’s the painting featuring Ivey being aborted from a tube sucking out her brain: I think If you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama. https://twitter.com/JimCarrey/status/1129796511611490304?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129796511611490304&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F05%2F18%2Fpeople-are-loving-jim-carreys-graphic-painting-of-alabama-gov-kay-ivey-being-aborted%2F Texas Senator Ted Cruz let Jim know how he felt about the painting… This is not OK. Today’s Left: vicious, angry & consumed by hate. Instead of insults & dehumanizing rage, we should return to civility. I disagree w/ Carrey’s politics, but believe we should respect his humanity nonetheless. I wish he could reciprocate. #LoveIsStrongerThanHate https://twitter.com/tedcruz/status/1130515866712518656?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130515866712518656&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fjim-carrey-has-unhinged-response-to-ted-cruz-after-insane-abortion-post%2F Carrey fired back at Ted with a new painting: https://twitter.com/JimCarrey/status/1130943200426745856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130943200426745856&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fjim-carrey-has-unhinged-response-to-ted-cruz-after-insane-abortion-post%2F Here’s what it says: “Some greasy Joe McCarthy wanna-be, who is shameless and will remain nameless, was lecturing me in the press about morality and civility after spending years in the Senate defending the rights of mass murderers to own AR-15s with which they massacre innocent children in their classrooms.” “I thought I must be dreaming, but I haven’t woken up yet,” Carrey continued. “I guess this hypocrisy is the new American Dream.” Jim must have a lot of free time these days. Back in November 2018, Carrey sent a tweet featuring one of his paintings showing support for then-Texas Democrat Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke (D). It was meant to disparage Cruz. Carrey failed in his attempt and Cruz fired back with the kill shot.
