New research debunks ‘cherry-picked’ pro-gun control study the mainstream media routinely cite

"One of the most prominent talking points gun control activists employ is their claim that mass public shootings don’t happen in other countries with the frequency that they do in the United States. The claim was often repeated during the Obama administration, and continues to be parroted by the mainstream media.

“The one thing we do know is that we have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world,” former President Barack Obama claimed after the mass killing in San Bernardino in Dec. 2015.

But new research debunks the study gun control advocates often cite. That study, published by criminologist Adam Lankford, claims the U.S. accounted for 31 percent of all public mass shootings between 1966 and 2012 in the world despite having less than 5 percent of the world’s population."


Womp womp. I sure hope nobody here has ever tried to use this Lankford study as evidence. Would be embarrassing.

Surtur, you dumbass, you didn't include the best parts of the article.


Looks like i'm going to have to do your job for you:


quote:
“By our count, the US makes up less than 1.43% of the mass public shooters, 2.11% of their murders, and 2.88% of their attacks. All these are much less than the US’s 4.6% share of the world population. Attacks in the US are not only less frequent than other countries, they are also much less deadly on average,” the study found.

One of the biggest problems with Lankford’s study, the CPRC alleges, is that Lankford was never honest about that data he included in his study, massively skewing its results.

From the CPRC:

Lankford’s study reported that from 1966 to 2012, there were 90 public mass shooters in the United States and 202 in the rest of world. We find that Lankford’s data represent a gross undercount of foreign attacks. Our list contains 1,448 attacks and at least 3,081 shooters outside the United States over just the last 15 years of the period that Lankford examined. We find at least fifteen times more mass public shooters than Lankford in less than a third the number of years.

Even when we use coding choices that are most charitable to Lankford, his 31 percent estimate of the US’s share of world mass public shooters is cut by over 95 percent.

Site is down and still is. May be a DDoS attack and they've redirected from their webserver to that error page until they stop the attack.

Nope, if you were intelligent enough to try visiting the site itself you'd see it wasn't just that article.

So: another leftist talking point demolished, womp womp!

And just to note: The Blaze was reporting on it. They were NOT the ones demolishing the talking point.

The sick thing is I bet you there are some in this country who would *want* it to be fake news. Who are saddened by the loss of this talking point.

Then again who am I kidding? They will continue to peddle it. Just like they did the "We had 18 school shootings this year!" lie after the Parkland shooting.

^ Now Surt's inventing his very own fake news. This isn't a new tactic though.

Speaking of mass shootings, why are democrats such filthy little liars about the subject and why do they then whine over Trumps lies and the Republicans inability to confront him over them, when they lie and their own people do not confront them over it? Holy shit we have a post that belongs in the leftist hypocrisy thread too.

Diane Feinstein said during the Kavanaugh hearings, while whining about the 2nd amendment or some shit...actually no she was whining about an assault weapons ban and asked Kavanaugh how he squared the hundreds of school shootings these were used in.

Haaaaa, No. She is lying. It's not even close to hundreds, not even if you look at the last 50-60 years. Why lie? Why be weasels if it's wrong to be a weasel when Trump is a weasel? Explain, and the shit has got to make sense, that's a requirement.

Dianne Feinstein Wants Brett Kavanaugh to 'Reconcile' His Second Amendment Reasoning With 'Hundreds of School Shootings' That Never Happened
