Washington, DC- Mass shootings, characterized as an incident of gun violence with four or more victims, seem to be a regular happening in the US and around the world these days.
While gun violence and firearm related deaths are a huge problem in the US, suicide is the leading cause of gun deaths, 2-1, in the country. Mass shootings receive the bulk of media attention because they put asses in the seats and create openings for socialist politicians to further their cause of disarming the American public.
The Obama Administration was instrumental in disarming and/or helping disarm many US urban areas. Chicago and Baltimore, two large urban areas that have a “no guns policy“, are leading the pack in gun violence and gun related deaths per capita in the nation. I’m sure everyone wants to thank the former “Fearless Leader” for those stats.
What is, or should be, more significantly alarming is the fact that the incidence of mass shootings rose by nearly 300% under Barack Obama’s administration. https://www.fbi.gov/about/partnerships/office-of-partner-engagement/active-shooter-incidents-graphics
According to an FBI report released in September of 2014, the incidence of mass shootings was on a steady decline from 1994 to 2007, with a national occurrence of 6.4 active shooters per year. The data also shows that from 2008 through 2013, the rate of active shooters rose by nearly 300%, from 6.4 active shooters per year, to 16.4 active shooters per year.
