Shows all public shootings since 2005



The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, a nonprofit lobbying group, has compiled an extensive list of the last 431 shootings with more than one victim since 2005




The organization's data says that since 2005, there has been a multiple-victim shooting every 5.9 days in the United States, with 87 people dying of bullet wounds each day. The most dangerous city for mass shootings is Chicago, the organization said, which has suffered through 17 shootings and resulting in 30 deaths and 72 injuries. Of those shootings, thirteen occurred in public places.

You can use the Interactive Map to enter an address and find out the nearest mass shooting that has occurred near your homes schools or place of work The map also links to news articles and personal testimonies of people affected by the shootings to provide a chilling context to the data visualization

first off,

Shows all public shootings since 2005
which are NOT mass shootings but you keep trying to pass it off as such


and, here are the Facts the Brady(campaign)Bunch don't want you to know ...

gunowners.org...
F. General Accounting Office questions the Brady law’s supposed effectiveness

* The Brady Law has failed to result in the incarceration of dangerous criminals. After the first year and a half, there were only seven successful prosecutions for making false statements on Brady handgun purchase forms—and only three of them were actually incarcerated. Because the situation hardly improved in subsequent years, one cannot argue that the law is working to keep violent criminals from getting handguns on the street.

* The Brady Law has ERRONEOUSLY denied firearms to thousands of applicants. Over fifty percent of denials under the Brady Law are for administrative snafus, traffic violations, or reasons other than felony convictions.

* Gun control advocates admit the Brady Law is not a panacea. According to a January, 1996 report by the General Accounting Office, "Proponents [of gun control] acknowledge that criminal records checks alone will not prevent felons from obtaining firearms."

* Criminals can easily evade the background checks by using straw purchasers: "Opponents of gun control note that criminals can easily circumvent the law by purchasing handguns on the secondary market or by having friends or spouses without a criminal record make the purchases from dealers."
so, how do you figure that greater than 1 death comprises a mass shooting ??

Epidemic? Lol check out even the WIKI articles on this. There are mass murders in every continent and corner of this god forsaken erd.
I was actually surprised HOW far from truth that statement of america is.
The whole "american whites kill the most" is political bull# much like the other rhetoric in "mainstream thought" cirrcles

My intention for this post was of the attention to the Interactive Map



here are the Facts the Brady(campaign)Bunch don't want you to know

I am not trying to pass anything off as Fact
I added qoutes from the article which is here
www.thedailybeast.com...



you keep trying to pass it off as such

The above quote is wholly wrong i only posted quotes from the link
My post was solely to bring the attention to ATS of the Interactive Map
Which can be found in the link above
I did not intend this post to be a stand off between the
Gunowners.org and the Brady Campaign
But if this



The Brady Law has ERRONEOUSLY denied firearms to thousands of applicants. Over fifty percent of denials under the Brady Law are for administrative snafus, traffic violations, or reasons other than felony convictions.

Has kept Firearms out of peoples hands then maybe it is not all bad
The post was to highlight the Interactive Map not to discuss Gun Law
Take it or Leave it

oh but you did with this very false opening statement ...

A mass shooting happens every FIVE days in America:The Interactive map shows how gun violence is an epidemic sweeping the nation
now, since you chose to post propaganda, you're gettting called on it.

i have no interest in the "quotes" of the propaganda piece you linked.
i like the facts of the issue and this doesn't represent any of them.

does it bother me that there may be 2 shooting deaths per state, daily ??
nope. criminals get what's coming to them.

does it bother me that Americans who feel threatened will shoot before negotiating ?? nope, that's their right.

what does bother me is when the issues are misrepresented, as you did here.

anything the laws have done to keep guns out of ppls hands is an INFRINGEMENT of an unalienable right, period. and, as you said ... take it or leave it.

People get shot in Chicago all the time because of their strict gun laws.

So, more gun control won't solve that problem.
