    Mass School Shootings up Four fold after passage of Gun Free School Zones act

    A graph prepared by an author and member of the state gun rights group Georgia Carry.org notes a marked increase in active killer events in spite of federal laws intended to help curb such incidents. GCO research staffer Michael Menkus, previously brought to the attention of Gun Rights Examiner readers as the author of “Guns Good Bans Bad - An Analysis of U.S. Department of Justice 2010 Crime Statistics,” recently completed a chart that demonstrates a quadrupling of these events (see photo accompanying this column).

    “Along with studying how changes in carry laws change crime rates, I also study Active Killer events and decided to look at the impact of the Gun-Free School Zone law,” Menkus told Gun Rights Examiner.

    “I found two interesting things. First, since the law was enacted we went from one incident every decade to four,” he reported. “Second, guess whose bill the original GFSZA was in? The guy President Obama just selected to spearhead the White House response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting. “

    “The sponsor of the Crime Control Act of 1990 which included the GFSZA was then-Senator Joe Biden,” a GeorgiaCarry.Org email blast to its members confirmed, asking and concluding “Will Joe Biden tarnish his legacy and admit his Gun-Free School Zone Act has endangered our children? We don't think so, either.”

    “Using news media sources and focusing on Active Killer events with four or more intentionally murdered victims, over a short period of time, within a school or university, GeorgiaCarry.Org's research staff totaled the number of Active Killer events (on y-axis) within discrete five year periods (on x-axis),” the membership email reported.

    It amazes me people are puzzled by this, when you have a media that runs around like a bunch of blood thirsty dogs and they are in the face of all those family members hurting. Then they show and talk about this sicko 24/7. Even after months have past they rip open that wound to let it bleed some more. What sicko wouldn't want that attention, can you say duh.

    How does your assertion/statistic manage to exist if this http://www.latimes.com/news/nation/n...,6511082.story is also correct?

    Not really challenging your figures. Just trying to show why there are lies, damn lies, and statistics in that order.

    stay safe.

    Mass Shootings not Increasing, But Schools Shootings have increased since 1990.

    It is school shootings that have increased, not total mass shootings. Not too surprising given the GFSZ act and the MSM coverage of school shootings.
