Mass shootings are no more common than they have been in past decades, despite the impression given by the media.
In fact, the high point for mass killings in the U.S. was 1929, according to criminologist Grant Duwe of the Minnesota Department of Corrections. . . .
With just one single exception, the attack on congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson in 2011, every public shooting since at least 1950 in the U.S. in which more than three people have been killed has taken place where citizens are not allowed to carry guns.
None of this will matter. The logic of the left demands that, in order to protect law abiding citizens from criminals with deadly intent, law abiding citizens must be disarmed. Only when the sheep are disarmed will they truly be safe from the wolves.
