As we continues to watch our nation devolve into a shouting match over the mathematics of firearms, those pushing for an anti-gun agenda are about to have their socks knocked off.

One of the most incredibly deceitful ways in which the liberal left is hoping to demonize guns is by invoking a great deal of emotion into the argument over their necessity.  They point to tragic incidents, like the one we saw earlier this year in Parkland, Florida, as the primary reason why we must reexamine our idea of the right to bear arms.

They want you to believe that this sort of thing is occurring everyday in our great nation, and they’ve made plenty of bogus claims as to the true scope of these sort of massacres.

As it turns out, much of that data was cooked into controversy, and in no way reflects the reality of the situation.

Researcher Adam Lankford claims 31 percent of the world’s mass shootings occur in the U.S. but John Lott’s Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) says the actual U.S. percentage is “over 95 percent” lower than Lankford suggested.

Lankford’s study looked at 1966 to 2012, and found 90 mass shootings in the U.S. during that time frame, and 202 throughout the rest of the world. While the findings of 90 mass shootings over a period of 46 years represent a stark rebuttal to the myriad leftists claiming 300-plus mass shootings a year in the U.S., CPRC is convinced Lankford’s figure on mass shootings throughout the rest of the world is way too low.

CPRC reports that when they looked at mass shootings around the world during a 15-year window of time within Lankford’s overall study period, they discovered “1,448 attacks and at least 3,081 shooters outside the United States.” In other words, they found “at least fifteen times more mass public shooters than Lankford in less than a third the number of years.”

While unsurprising to those if us who have been paying attention, this news will likely be unable to find its way to the mainstream media who have come out swinging against the Second Amendment time and time again.
