There’s danger in Media GasLighting on School Shootings

There is great culture danger in the constant media gaslighting of America on school shootings. Considering that one of the Parkland school students was just elected to Congress at age 25 (youngest possible) on a “gun control” platform in Florida, it’s probably time for gun owners to pay attention. 

Even though the Federal Gun Free School Zone Act has worked to create supposed “gun free” massacre zones nationwide, the actual incidence of these incidents is quite rare. Media propaganda stoked by these events would make you think otherwise:

Some statistics from the article: 

Not once in two hours was the number of mass shootings (133 in 39 years, 3.5/yr) or students killed (1K28/yr) or injured (2.6K68/yr) relative to the number of children in America, 0.004%, mentioned.  Nor were the odds of being shot in a mass shooting (1 in 11K), 1,571 times less than dying from cancer (1 in 7), presented.  No one stated how often so-called “assault rifles” (10% of the time) are used or how many shootings are stopped by armed civilians (49% in 2021).  Nor were gun-free zones, Israeli policy, or the effects of drug use and nihilistic ideologies (that deny God’s existence) on the mental state of shooters discussed.  Perhaps most remarkably, no one mentioned that all public policy is legally constrained by the U.S. Constitution.

Although many on stage were paid to uphold the Constitution and most in the audience were U.S. citizens, the social compact that binds all Americans together was met not with praise, but with challenges as to the 2nd Amendment’s meaning of the word militia and whether the founders envisioned weapons beyond muskets — intimating that semi-automatic weapons (85% of handguns manufactured in 2018) are constitutionally out of bounds.  Instead, the pain of survivors and what that pain demanded were most on display.  In response, politicians added insult to injury by vowing to infringe upon yet more rights without deference to tragedies that have followed national firearm bans as night follows day — for if students gunned down by an evil and deranged person is a horror beyond words, what are tens of millions slaughtered by an evil and deranged government?
