1 Horrible Story DESTROYS School Shooting Myth

-

Mass shootings are horrible things. I’d like to think that most people can agree on that statement. School shootings are, possibly, the worst kinds of mass shootings because they involve our most precious things in life: our children. I’d like to think that we can all agree on that, too.

Sadly, though most people agree that those types of events are terrible and that we all want them to occur less frequently, those on the anti-2A side of the political spectrum consistently make blatantly false statements to support their position pushing for gun control and gun confiscation.

Beyond the dishonesty, the problem with not telling the truth about mass shootings and school shootings, in particular, is that, without accurate information, people aren’t able to understand what is going on in these situations to put together solutions that can actually work. Without accurate information to start from, any reasoning based off of it is much more likely to come to wrong conclusions.

And one of the most common lies told by the anti-2A propagandists is that mass shootings and school shootings are a uniquely American (with our high rate of gun ownership) tragedy.

But a recent awful story out of Russia proves that just isn’t the case. The Associated Press gives us details:

A Russian girl shot several classmates at school Thursday, killing one person and wounding five others before killing herself, state news agencies and authorities said.

The shooting happened at a school in Bryansk, a city in a region of the same name that borders Ukraine, Russia’s Investigative Committee said.

This is absolutely awful. There’s no question about that.

But this isn’t the first time that this has happened even if it’s the first time that you’ve heard of it. Again, from The Associated Press:

In September 2022, a gunman opened fire in a school in central Russia, killing 17 people and wounding 24 others before shooting himself dead.

In April 2022, a man killed two children and a staff member at a kindergarten also in central Russia.

In May 2021, a man opened fire at students at his former high school in the Russian city of Kazan, killing nine people including seven children.

In 2018, an 18-year-old student in Crimea killed 20 people in a mass shooting at a college.

These are all terrible. None of them should have happened.

But these tragedies aren’t uniquely American with our uniquely high rate of firearms ownership. They happen in other parts of the world. They’ve been happening in other parts of the world for some time.

But anti-2A politicians and their cronies in the mainstream legacy media don’t want you to know that, and that’s why you haven’t been hearing about them. Because once you know about that, it’s harder to buy their lie that legal gun ownership drives school shootings.
