According to the FBI, “active shooter incidents” have tripled in recent years….then, they admit that it probably hasn’t. (See below). The vast majority of “active shooter incidents” do not end with dozens of deaths. Actually, most of them are foiled by brave bystanders or by the police, and the mainstream media flatly ignores those incidents. What the mainstream media focuses on and hypes to the extreme are the shootings that a)have false-flag elements to them and/or b) occur because of some perceived laxity in the current gun legislation and/or new gun legislation that liberals want to see passed in the U.S. Congress.
Apparently, the FBI started studying “active shooter incidents” after the Sandy Hoax, supposedly to “develop new ways to respond and save lives.” They define “active shooters” as gunmen who arrive on the scene with specific intentions to commit mass murder. The difference between an “active shooter” and other mass killings or mass shootings is that it doesn’t include incidents like bank robberies or drug deals that go sour.
The FBI bases it’s “there’s more active shooter incidents” conclusion on data collected by a researcher from Texas State University. They claim that the data shows a tripling of these incidents in recent years.
“There is a higher number of people being shot and a higher number of people being killed,” said special agent Katherine Schweit, head of the FBI’s active shooter team which formed after last year’s rampage in Newtown.
In the 30 years through March, 78 public mass shootings occurred in the U.S. — incidents in which four or more people were killed at random by a gunman killing indiscriminately, according to a report issued that month by the Congressional Research Service. These crimes don’t include gang-related killings or domestic disputes where a person slays relatives or other people linked to the assailant.
The mass slaughters listed in the report caused the deaths of 547 people. Over the same three decades through 2012, that’s less than a tenth of 1 percent of the 559,347 people the Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates were murdered in America.
“It is a very, very small percentage,” said James Alan Fox, who teaches criminology at Boston’s Northeastern University and co-authored a book about mass shootings called “Extreme Killing,” published in 2011.
In the wake of shootings such as the one in Washington [The Navy Yard Shooting] that claimed at least 13 lives, including the alleged shooter, “our tendency is to go overboard and overreach in terms of trying to increase levels of security,” Fox said. “The fear is greater than the risk.”
For the most part anyway, most active shooter incidents go unnoticed by people outside the immediate community. The only time people seem to be aware of these incidents is when the mainstream media focuses on and hypes up these shootings.
Here are the shootings mentioned in the ABC10News article (the ones hyped up by the mainstream media are in red):
In Tulsa, Okla., in 2012, two gunmen drove around town opening fire at random African-Americans, killing three people.
At Inskip Elementary School in Knoxville, Tenn. a school employee opened fire on administrators in 2010.
In Lake Butler, Fla., this past August, a former trucking company employee drove around the city on a Saturday morning and shot two former co-workers and his one-time boss, killing two before arriving home, where he shot himself.
This year, recent high profile active shooting incidents include an attack at the Los Angeles International Airport where a gunman killed a Transportation Security Administration officer and wounded two other agents.
In September, a gunman killed 12 people inside a heavily secured building at the Washington, D.C., Navy Yard.
Another problem with the Scripps data is that the authorities automatically assume that the shooter’s desire to kill is the primary characteristic that they all have, without taking into account the other thing that almost all of them have in common: mind control and psychopharmaceuticals.
“The characteristics that bind them together unfortunately is (the) shooter’s desire to kill” said Special Agent Schweit, and to kill “as many people and kill them as fast and freely as he may be able to ” she said in an exclusive interview with Scripps.
It’s interesting how, when searching for a motive, they downplay the effects of the drugs that carry a black box warning of homicidal or suicidal ideation. Why don’t they ban the drugs that are causing a good percentage of these events, instead of banning guns that people could use to take them down if there was an active shooter situation?
Many shooters who are apprehended and detained by police (in other words, the ones who aren’t shot and don’t “commit suicide”) have told fellow inmates, their attorneys, and even journalists that the event “felt like a dream”, that they didn’t remember very much of the event, and some even go so far as to say that they thought their therapist or psychiatrist they saw before the shooting “programmed” them to do it. The D.C. Navy Yard shooter, Aaron Alexis, even said that he was being electronically harassed by a group of people. Based on my own research I’ve done over the past 10 years, I wholeheartedly believe that mind control and psychopharmaceutical drugs are the root cause of at least 80% of mass shootings, especially since 2006.
After explaining all of that to you, I read this out of ABC10:
Some respected criminologists caution that the apparent rise in active shooter events, may not in fact be real.
“I’d be hesitant to declare trends based off a modest number of years and a modest amount of data,” said Dr. James Alan Fox of Northeastern University, an expert in mass shootings who served on President Clinton’s advisory panel on school shootings. Fox warns that researchers may have a difficult time finding older cases.
“The question is in 2003, are you sure that all those cases that would today be called active shooters would have been locatable,” said Fox.
According to Fox’s own research, the number of “mass killings” has stayed relatively flat over the last 35 years.
So, active shooter incidents haven’t tripled, even though the title of their article claims they have. Nice journalistic work, huh?
She issued an impassioned plea to the U.S. public not to accept the idea that Americans are helpless in the face of gun-happy politicians and wealthy lobbyists to stop gun deaths of children and others in this country….
“The conventional wisdom says that we can do nothing more as a country to stop gun violence,” she said. “You can’t get people to give up any access to guns. ‘Guns are part of who we are and how we live, so get over it!’”
“Or don’t get over it,” she said. “Don’t get over it when they say that there can be no changes to what we’re used to, that there’s no compromise that can be lived with, that the repeated and frequent murder of children has to be normal and there’s no way to stop it at all.”
Destroying the laws that invoke and reiterate our basic freedoms is not a compromise. It’s a coup d’état.
“We have a choice,” she insisted, “And we can make change. If we adults don’t see a way to do it, our best hope is that the surviving kids are smarter and braver and more clever and more committed than we are.”
That’s code for: “You think standardized testing is all we’re doing? We’re filling your child’s head with socialist and communist ideology through Common Core, and you won’t even know the extent of it until it’s too late. We’re going to rebuild Mao’s ‘Cultural Revolution‘ in America, and your children are going to turn you in for us….because they’re going to be trained to be flat-out scared of guns and expect others to be the same. Lulz.”
Arapahoe High School student Claire Davis, 17, who was shot in the head by a teen using a shotgun that he legally bought, is evidence that the gun control campaign has got nowhere in the year after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.
It isn’t 20 eblementary school children gunned down in Connecticut this time. It is once again Colorado, where the gun nuts target you and run you out of political office if you even talk about more gun control, even in a state that feels like the capital of senseless shootings because of Columbine, because of Aurora.
“The people of Colorado have made history tonight sending a loud and clear message that will reverberate throughout the country and alter the terrain of the gun-control debate,” said Kurt Bardella, a consultant for the campaigns seeking to recall Morse and fellow Democrat Sen. Angela Giron.
“What happened in Colorado, a purple state, could happen anywhere if the will of the people is ignored and politicians take their cues from New York City or Washington D.C.,” he said in a statement. “At the end of the day, people will not tolerate an imposition of un-checked government over-reach on their lives. The recall was a mechanism of accountability exercised by the people of Colorado.”
It is one high school student this time: Claire Davis, 17, who loves riding and loves horses and was living a wonderful life, one full of promise and possibilities, before Karl Pierson shot her on Friday because he had that big gun with him and she was the first in his way in the 80 seconds between when he walked through the doors of his school and finally did the world a favor and shot himself.
You always hear it isn’t the gun, don’t blame the gun, which is always like saying Babe Ruth and Henry Aaron could have hit all those home runs without a bat in their hands.
Yeah, okay. Baseball players don’t play baseball to save their lives or the lives of their children. Where did this Bozo go to school? He doesn’t even know how to use the trivium correctly or even use logical fallacies in a meaningful way!
But Karl Pierson, there to settle a score with a debate team teacher if he got the chance, also had a machete with him at Arapahoe High on Friday, and a Molotov cocktail, almost one year exactly after Newtown.
Pierson used his gun on Claire Davis because the gun always makes killing quick and easy, in this world where teenagers are allowed to buy pump-action shotguns, apparently in case they have to charge a machine gun nest before practicing with the debate team.
You want to tell any teenager, unhinged like Karl Pierson or not, that if he really needs a gun, join the Army and go shoot up Afghanistan.
It was a Friday at Arapahoe High the way it was a Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary, 12 days before Christmas this time in the country of guns, where nothing important has changed with gun control in America despite all the vigils and ceremonies and bell ringing and noble intentions; despite the pleas to Congress from parents of Sandy Hook victims, despite all the speeches President Obama has made about guns.
The best part of this? The best part is that decent politicians were trying to do something about guns in Colorado. Some Democratic politicians in the state took the lead on smart, tough legislation this year, trying to expand background checks — which only idiots think is some threat to everything good and decent — and limit the size of ammunition magazines. It meant they were trying to be as smart and tough on guns as the state of New York is.
Maybe you know what happened. If you don’t, here’s what happened: Various knuckle-draggers from the National Rifle Association and the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners organized successful recalls of two state senators, both Democrats — John Morse and Angela Giron — who voted for the tougher laws.
Of course, two-thirds of the money spent on the recalls for Morse and Giron came from the National Rifle Association, an organization dedicated to putting as many guns, especially the fast-killing ones, in as many hands as possible in America.
The victim or victims never do have enough time to run, the gun always wins, an assault rifle in Newtown, a pump-action shotgun at Arapahoe High School. One year after Newtown, the sound you heard wasn’t bells being rung in America, just another big gun being fired.
Out is an immediate public push for legislation in Congress, with all the accompanying flashy public events. In is a series of local events across the country and painstakingly building a political infrastructure able to compete with the National Rifle Association.
“There’s no question that Congress failed to do the right thing,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday. “And in the end, there’s a limit on what a president can do. Other actions require congressional movement.”
“The infrastructure just wasn’t there to turn it around quickly — the knowledge wasn’t there among Hill staff, among members of Congress who hadn’t voted on it for a decade,” said Lanae Erickson Hatalsky, the director of social policy and politics at Third Way, a centrist think tank. “Now all of us know a heck of a lot more about this. We won’t need to take so much time to figure that out. If there is a tragedy that specifically involves one of the policies we’re talking about, were going to see more swift action.”
Whoa. Which policies are we talking about, here?
“Undetectable firearms”? Oh, you mean 3D printed guns. Online gun sales and the “virtual loophole”? It sounds like the powers that be aren’t genuinely worried about people killing themselves in their own home ; It sounds like they’re worried about guns being in the hands of the average Joe Citizen.
The Thompson-King Background Check Compromise
Representatives Mike Thompson (D-CA) and Peter King (R-NY) have introduced a bipartisan compromise bill on background checks that protects the Second Amendment rights of gun owners while strengthening our ability to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, terrorists, and those who are severely mentally ill.
James Duane, a professor at Regent Law School and former defense attorney, notes in his excellent lecture on why it is never a good idea to talk to the police:
Estimates of the current size of the body of federal criminal law vary. It has been reported that the Congressional Research Service cannot even count the current number of federal crimes. These laws are scattered in over 50 titles of the United States Code, encompassing roughly 27,000 pages. Worse yet, the statutory code sections often incorporate, by reference, the provisions and sanctions of administrative regulations promulgated by various regulatory agencies under congressional authorization. Estimates of how many such regulations exist are even less well settled, but the ABA thinks there are ”nearly 10,000.”
It is a known fact that, in our government agencies today, the Founding Fathers are called “terrorists”. What does that say about how they feel about the U.S. Constitution?
Last year when Obama returned to Washington after speaking at the Newtown memorial service , Dan Gross, the president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, was the first gun control activist to get a White House meeting. That was in part because he was the only game in town.
Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’s Americans for Responsible Solutions, the Sandy Hook Promise and Moms Demand Action have all formed this year.The post-Obama campaign nonprofit Organizing for Action launched in January with gun violence prevention as one of its four main policy areas.
In other words, there’s about to be a huge build-up of anti-gun lobbying and legislation, so gird your loins, gunowners.
The low-key events were meant to keep activists engaged and lawmakers from forgetting the issue. They are also planning for the midterm elections while doing the macabre job of preparing a response for what they see as the inevitability of the next mass shooting while at the same time making the fight as much cultural as political.
If they keep predicting these shootings, people are going to start suspecting something.
“I hope there’s not a next time, but if there is, we’ve laid the groundwork; we’ve got momentum across the country,” said Rep. Mike Thompson (D-Calif.), the chairman of the House Democrats’ gun violence task force.
On the forefront of this effort is Shannon Watts, a spunky Indiana woman and political neophyte who started Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America as a Facebook group after the Newtown massacre. Now Watts, a mother and stepmother of five, is the head of an organization vying to become the MADD of gun control.
There’s no “2nd Amendment of drunk driving”, so the logic is flawed on this one. Driving drunk is a morally reprehensible thing to do. Owning a gun is a right of a free people.
Watts hopes to make background checks a women’s issue the same way abortion rights are — something candidates, particularly Democrats, are forced to forcefully support.
This is the only argument I could really see working, unless we were able to wake women everywhere up to the fact they’re going to be played like a fiddle by the establishment to push through laws that will disarm and make slaves out of their children. And what does “forced to forcefully support” mean, anyway? It doesn’t sound good. Use of force is the primary argument against government in general. What gives people the right to force anyone to do anything? Through violence. So, these people are going to use violence to stop violence?
Watts spoke shortly after a brief meeting with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who urged the Moms activists to press moderate Republicans to demand a House vote. Democrats, she said, are all already on board.
“There needs to be more calling out of people, in the districts of people who seem to be sympathetic, especially Republicans, because for Democrats, it’s a settled thing,” she said at the seven-minute meeting and photo-op in the Capitol.
Calling out (\ˈkȯ-liŋ\ \ˈau̇t\):
1. To deliberately insult someone.
2. To challenge someone in some way. Or to put someone on blast.
Wow, Pelosi sure sounds pretty confident. I wonder if she realizes that most people don’t support ANY of Congress, and would rather have a root canal than meet with one of them.
One area of potential common ground is more funding for mental health issues and restrictions. Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday revealed $100 million in mental health funding from the departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services.
Mental health funding through the Department of Agriculture? Huh? I don’t know what’s going on there.
Biden, who spearheaded a failed Obama administration campaign for stronger gun control measures following the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, met with families of the victims and mental health advocates.
“The fact that less than half of children and adults with diagnosable mental health problems receive the treatment they need is unacceptable,” he said in a statement.
Code for: “We should have twice as many people on these zombie pills!”
After Sandy Hook, Obama and Biden pushed to expand background checks for gun sales, ban more types of military-style assault weapons and limit the capacity of ammunition magazines.
But lawmakers failed to pass the measures, which were opposed by powerful lobbying groups, including the National Rifle Association.
The White House has proposed spending $130 million to help teachers and other people who work with youth recognize the signs of mental illness and help people get treatment, but Congress has not yet allocated those funds.
So the administration will spend $50 million from its Health and Human Services budget to help community health centers hire more mental health professionals and provide more services and another $50 million from the Agriculture Department budget to improve mental health facilities in rural areas, the White House said.
So, they’re trying to get ’em in the mental health care system and drugged up by the time they reach high school. And you can’t get away from it by moving to a small town, either.
But mental health-only legislation won’t draw support from gun control advocates for fear it will allow background checks opponents to color themselves as doing something on guns.
In other words, they want to not only keep guns away from people they deem “crazy”, but they also want to take them away from law-abiding citizens who are practicing responsible gun ownership?
“It’s just subterfuge, let’s talk about this so we don’t have to talk about that,” Pelosi said. “It doesn’t mean that we don’t want to do some good things about mental health. We have to be discerning about what it is we’re doing.”
NRA officials declined repeated requests to comment, but its lobbying arm recently accused the White House and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg of trying to make political hay out of the Newtown anniversary.
“Obama and Bloomberg are pulling out the stops, knowing that support for gun control — which rose in the days after Sandy Hook — is waning,” read a post on the the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action website. “Not only was the Obama gun control agenda defeated in the Senate last spring, a new CNN poll shows that support for gun control has dropped by six points since January, and a majority of Americans now oppose stricter gun laws.”
As far as momentum in Washington goes, the NRA is correct.
It was a crime that spoke, perhaps more than any other in recent memory, to America’s deadly and debilitating fascination with guns. Here was the sickness of this nation’s gun culture on vivid display….
We’re unlikely to find out any time soon. One might think that such unceasing bloodshed and the shock of Newtown would lead to not just national outcry but reform of America’s lax gun laws. And it has. Ironically, they’ve been further weakened.
As the New York Times reported earlier this week there have been 109 gun laws passed in state legislatures since Newtown – 39 of them tightened gun restrictions and 70 loosened them. On the federal level, a bill to expand background checks for potential gun buyers was defeated by a Republican filibuster. In Colorado, which is one of the few states to toughen its gun laws in the last year, two state legislators who supported the bill were defeated in recall elections.The NRA’s power to thwart public opinion and to uphold the narcissistic belief among gun advocates that their “freedom” must outweigh the costs to society of practically unfettered access to guns remains as strong as ever.
The 2nd Amendment isn’t about just my freedom. It’s about yours too, lady, and your kids! Letting the Bill of Rights and the Constitution die so that people “can’t hurt themselves” is treason to your country!
Ah, but what about protection say gun advocates? How will I ever keep my family safe from the hordes of home invaders? As the study says, “There is no credible evidence of a deterrent effect of firearms or that a gun in the home reduces the likelihood or severity of injury during an altercation or break-in.”
Girl, check out how much home invasions have decreased since the 90’s (According to the FBI).
Do you really think it’s home invasions that are driving people to get armed? No, sweetie, it’s the fact that we have a rogue government that’s decided not to work for the citizens anymore, and doesn’t fear them either (like they’re supposed to), because they have plenty of guns to subdue the population with. What do you think is going to happen when the spigot of credit at the Federal Reserve gets turned off by China or somebody else who we’ve borrowed from? What do you think is going to happen when the real financial crisis truly begins? Sure, things would be okay for a few days. But studies – and real life, such as post-Katrina New Orleans – have shown that during a crisis, people will engage in robberies and lootings en masse. And those who are armed can defend themselves from those desperate hordes of people.
But maybe you already realize this, and think people who are in a post-disaster scenario shouldn’t have guns….Because during Katrina, that’s exactly what the government was thinking, too:
If there is one thing that we do know about gun ownership in America, it is that buying a gun and keeping it one’s home for “protection” dramatically increases the possibility of dying (or having a family member or friend die) from gun violence.
It also increases the chances of survival if someone breaks into your house while you and your children are inside. A robber sees a gun, and 99% of the time will run away, no shooting required. If you keep the standards of safe gun ownership, there is virtually no chance of you or your family members to die. Especially if you have a gun safe.
It’s even worse for children. By one estimate, more than 75% of guns used in suicide attempts and unintentional injuries in those between birth and age 19 were kept in the home of the victim, at relatives or with friends. Imagine if Americans were told that every time they went to the gun store to buy a weapon.
My dad told me where his gun was when I was about 10 years old. Along with that, he looked me straight in the eye and said, “If you ever touch this, you’re gonna get the biggest spanking you’ve ever had.” Personally, I think children should be taught how to use firearms from a young age, unless there is evidence of an underlying mental disorder that would preclude it. If, as above, you follow the safety standards while at the same time teaching your children how to defend themselves from being brutally murdered in a more effective manner than hiding under the bed, your family is safer overall.
I do believe that some basic rules of responsibility should exist for guns, and if a child is killed by accident by firearms, I believe they should have to go to jail, simply because there was no reason for that gun to be out of the gun safe and in the unsupervised hands of a child. I kind of agree with them when they say that. However, there have been gun-related accidents since guns were invented, and what are we going to do? Ban everything that could hurt somebody?
The photographs, the tears, the grief, caused leaders across the country to mobilize — states debated more than 1,500 gun bills and passed 109 of them over the course of the year. The First State passed two major pieces of legislation, one strengthening background checks for nearly all private sales and another requiring reports for lost or stolen guns.
But on the national level, no major gun legislation made it to President Barack Obama’s desk.
A week after the shootings in Newton, a Pew Research Center survey found that 49 percent of Americans felt it was important to control gun ownership, while 42 percent felt it was important to protect the rights of Americans to own guns — marking the first noticeable split on the issue since President Obama’s presidency. By May 2013, one month after the U.S. Senate failed to pass a bipartisan universal background check bill, the percentages climbed closer; 50 percent of people surveyed favored controlling gun ownership, but 48 percent supported protecting gun rights.
Do you see the cause/effect relationship going on here? Sandy Hoax = half of Americans want gun control = 1,500 gun control laws get passed in the U.S. at the state level. Simply astounding how the mainstream media is able to toy with our minds the way they do.
“But beneath the sadness, we also felt a sense of resolve – that these tragedies must end, and that to end them, we must change.”
On December 14, 2012, a heavily armed man identified as 20-year-old Adam Lanza entered the school and opened fire. In ten minutes he shot and killed 26 people before taking his own life.
The senseless slaughter of young children at the hands of a mentally disturbed individual shook the nation’s conscience like no other mass shooting in years.
“We have to do more to keep dangerous people from getting their hands on a gun so easily,” said Obama.
“We have to do more to heal troubled minds. We have to do everything we can to protect our children from harm and make them feel loved, and valued, and cared for.”
Obama also emphasized that “we can’t lose sight of the fact that real change won’t come from Washington. It will come the way it’s always come -– from you. From the American people.”
Yes, Mr. Obama. Change will occur from the American people, yes. But it hasn’t before. The people you work for have been the ones who’ve fomented change throughout the years. World War I, World War II, The Baby Boom, The 60’s drug culture (and subsequent collapse with the Sharon Tate murders), the Internet ; everything that binds us all together in our collective reality, your masters have created. However, the last one will be their downfall, because before the internet, it was far easier to silence and neutralize critics and non-supporters of the current administration. The truth about our history throughout the last century – and in fact, throughout the last several thousand years – is coming to the forefront and the elite, wealthy, and affluent of the world are freaking out.
That’s the only reason they want to confiscate guns so badly, they’re willing to spend billions of dollars to play games with the public/collective mind – and it’s our job to expose their half-truths, lies, and machinations.
