  • Why America Is Prone to Mass Shootings

    A strange paradox is emerging in America: Overall violent-crime rates are down, but active shooter events in which a person is trying to kill multiple people in a populated area appear to be on the rise, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation statistics. Meanwhile, a just-released study finds that although the United States has just about 5 percent of the world's population, the country has 31 percent of the world's mass shooters. The reasons for these numbers are complex, researchers say, but the data suggest that the availability of guns, and perhaps the American obsession with fame, may...

    It was not an "if" but "when". The handwriting was on everyone's walls, for all to see. I have for the past few weeks stayed quietly away, gently watching the Trump-Clinton feud coming of age as election time draws closer. Many Americans, I assure you, are not the slightest bit aware of the enormity of what is at stake in these elections and the ensuing consequences to the nation, depending on who we elect to be our next president. The Orlando massacre has now earned its uninvited place as the worst mass shooting ever in U.S. history of the nation...
  • Disgusting: Mizzou Race Activist Scolds White People At Orlando Shooting Vigil

    What is with this school? The University of Missouri seems to be a breeding ground for unhinged progressives, who appear to have turned a vigil remembering the victims of the Orlando attack into some weird lecture about race. The College Fix had the details concerning what Mizzou graduate and activist Tiffany Melecio said before addressing the diverse crowd, namely how she was nervous getting up on stage because of all the white people in attendance. “I was really nervous to get up here because there’s a lot of white people in the crowd, and that wasn’t a joke,” she said...
  • Rep. Alan Grayson: An AR-15 Rifle Can Fire 700 Rounds In A Minute

    No, Rep. Alan Grayson—an AR-15 rifle cannot shoot 700 rounds per minute. And CNN’s Erin Burnett did nothing to press him on this outrageous claim during her on-camera interview with him Sunday. Now, the AR-15 wasn’t the rifle used in the Orlando attack, which left 49 people dead in the worst mass shooting in American history. It also was a likely terrorist attack, but let’s discuss these remarks by Grayson because it shows how the anti-gun Left has no clue what they’re talking about.Alan Grayson claims AR-15 can fire 700 rounds per minute, which is ridiculous “If I may just say...

    I know that many of you are not only hurting today, you are also angry. And your anger is not just directed at the Muslim terrorist who slaughtered so many of your people. You are also angry at Christians like me, believing that we have helped to create the toxic, hateful atmosphere that led to the horrific massacre.A gay activist in Charlotte, North Carolina with whom I’ve shared meals and interacted many times, expressed his anger towards what he called the “sanctimonious bulls—t” of conservative Christian leaders, saying, “You helped cause this massacre. Your anti-LGBTQ theology assisted in helping others,...

    A terrorist shot and killed 49 innocent Americans in Orlando Sunday morning. After the carnage, the political food fight started. On the right, people fault Islamic extremism. When President Obama refuses to use the term "radical Islamic terrorism" that gives conservatives a chance to pounce. I know -- I've been one of them. We argue that if politicians aren't willing to use the term Islamic extremism, then they can't defeat it. It's true: You have to know who your enemy is, before you can vanquish your enemy. But using the right words is not a game-changer. Donald Trump drew water...

    ON OCTOBER 1, 2015, in a scene that has become depressingly familiar, 26-year-old Christopher Harper-Mercer walked into Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, and opened fire, killing nine people and injuring nine more. Like George Sodini, who killed three women and himself in an L.A. Fitness Center in Pennsylvania; like Seung-Hui Cho, who killed 32 people and injured 17 others at Virginia Tech; and like Elliot Rodger, who killed 6 people and injured 14 others in Isla Vista, California; a large part of Harper-Mercer’s motivation was his toxic anger at women because of his lack of success with them. Harper-Mercer...

    Looking for some comic relief after President Obama's teary announcement of new executive orders on gun control, and Chris Matthews' fawning interview of Hillary Clinton? You've come to the right place. On this evening's O'Reilly Factor, Dem strategist Nomiki Konst claimed that forcing law-abiding Americans to register their guns would stop the "majority" of mass shootings. You're killing me, Nomiki—you should excuse the expression. View the video here.
  • WaPo Analysis: Rubio Was Right About Gun Control Doing Nothing to Prevent Mass Shootings

    Earlier this month, presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) appeared on CBS's "This Morning" and made the following claim about gun control: "None of the major shootings that have occurred in this country over the last few months or years that have outraged us, would gun laws have prevented them." The Washington Post, doubting Sen. Marco Rubio's (R-FL) statement, decided to fact check him by analyzing some of the most tragic shootings to occur since Newtown. To what seemed like a surprise to the editors, the consistent result was, "No proposed laws" would have made a difference. They started with...

    1. They are a minuscule portion of the U.S. population. 2. They're better educated than most Americans. 3. They have more gender equality. 4. They've been here since the birth of the nation. 5. They're not just clustered in big cities. 6. They're as religious as Christians. 7. They're not as dogmatic as they are portrayed. 8. There have been Muslims involved in terrorism. 9. But they've also spoken out against it.

    The Daily Signal ^ | December 4, 2015 | Philip Wegmann
    Rep. Tim Murphy, R-Pa., thinks he has a solution for much of the surge in mass shootings. Rather than reacting with new gun control measures, Murphy proposes to overhaul the nation’s mental health system to get at what he believes is the root of the violence.Recent mass murders have given that reform effort traction. And, in an interview, Murphy told The Daily Signal he hopes to refurbish federal laws to better help those who suffer from mental illness before they can harm others.“This bill would have some of the most substantive reforms of the last 50 years,” Murphy said.Although his...

    I’m sure you’re all familiar with the tale by now and it’s depressing. A mass shooting in one of the country’s great cities. Cable news legal experts would refer to it as “highly unusual” because it involved more than one shooter. It was a crowded area with many innocent people in the potential line of fire. Ambulances lined up to tend to the casualties. So we all know what I’m talking about, right? No… it’s not the San Bernardino shooting. It was the shooting in Bunny Friend Park in New Orleans and it happened on November 22nd. The description from the...
  • Mother Jones Editor: That '355 Mass Shootings' Statistic Is Really Wrong

    Townhall.com ^ | December 5, 2015 | Christine Rousselle
    Shortly after news broke of a shooting in San Bernardino (which we now know was a terrorist attack), Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit were abuzz that the events of December 2, 2015 were the "355th mass shooting" of 2015. Obviously, this was a concerning statistic--if it were actually true.It turns out it wasn't, and even figures on the left agree. There's been nowhere near 355 mass shootings in 2015, and according to Mother Jones editor Mark Folman, there have been exactly four. At Mother Jones, where I work as an editor, we have compiled an in-depth, open-source database covering more than...

    As you saw last night, the first picture of the female Jihadi from San Bernardino has been released, and as you already know she got her Visa to come here and kill our citizens by lying about her address on the application. (How’s that vetting program going, guys?) [Edit: It turns out the address was “close”) Let’s have a fresh look at the face of one of the people who pledged her allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi even as she was busily slaughtering Californians. By this point, we have removed the few remaining slivers of doubt regarding the terrorist natures...

    A recent study by the Crime Prevention Research Center found that mass shootings happen more frequently in European countries. Obama recently said, “We as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency.” He couldn’t be further from the truth. When you account for the population size of America compared to the countries Obama compares us, his statement falls apart. The study defined mass public shootings as four or more people killed, and not in the...

    There's a good chance that some link to a motive can be found for every murder. Hillary Clinton and Co. said that a video was responsible for Benghazi. Satirical cartoons were responsible for the Charlie Hebdo terrorist acts. Where did Robert Lewis Dear hear about the "baby parts" if (1) he lived off the grid with no electricity and (2) since very few news outlets reported on the Planned Parenthood videos? "Craig Stephens Hicks, an atheist who killed three Muslims in North Carolina in February, was supposedly a big fan of Rachel Maddow and Bill Nye the Science Guy. It...
