If your cause is righteous, why lie?:  Audit of Everytown’s Claimed 200+ School Shootings Since Sandy Hook.

If I have not miscounted along the way (and it is possible that I may have done just that by one or two or three), Everytown has claimed a grand total of 203 school shootings since Sandy Hook.Of those, 75 seem to meet a generous definition of that term, which includes on campus student housing (the “dorm rule”), even well after hours and on weekends and even when students aren’t involved). Of those 203 “school shootings,” only 44 meet the common perception of a school shooting, where someone came to a school campus to shoot faculty, staff, or students.

A very handy tool to use against the #GunSense crowd and other fanatics of Gun Control. Some “shootings are so obviously not school related that normal people would be too embarrassed to count in, but we are talking about Bloomberg and Company.

  1. I think the interesting part here is that 44 school shootings (even though almost all of those 44 are not comparable to Sandy Hook, nor do most even qualify as “mass shootings”) is still a fairly big number. “11 school shootings” a year would still probably scare the shit out of parents and Everytown would still be able to push their continual attempt to connect every gun-related murder near a school and every gun owner to the killing of 6-year-olds.

    So the question becomes, why do they choose to damage their own argument even in a propaganda-generating sense? I suspect it’s because they are “true believers” living in a bubble (along with a doating press) but on some level, they have to believe they are reaching their targeted audience. Winning this fight will always be about the long game; be it ideological or physical force.

  2. You’d think they’d learn after getting called out by one of their fairly liberal friends at CNN a couple of years ago when they tried the same thing.

    “CNN determined that 15 of the incidents Everytown included were situations similar to the violence in Newtown or Oregon — a minor or adult actively shooting inside or near a school. That works out to about one such shooting every five weeks, a startling figure in its own right.”

  3. Yep. Most of the Everyloon count are outright lies. Some of what’s left are atypical (more like technicalities), and 44 were legitimate school shootings, but conventional: student goes after other student or staff. Only a handfull are actual mass shootings by a deranged individual, a la Sandy Hook, and most of them were stopped by an SRO, or by the average citizen who carries. Only two “Sandy Hooks” were successful, with body counts over five. Yet, that malevolent, belligerent midget, Michael Bloomberg, and his Everyloons would have us believe that the entire list was Sandy Hook repeated ad nauseum. They have no shame. They have their agenda, and they will lie to drive it.

  4. When this originally came out, I thought we came up with 41 (and that was being ‘generous’)… But liars gotta lie…
