Researchers: Schools Shootings Not on the Rise, Schools Safer Than in the ’90s

Public perception is a dangerous thing.  It's easily manipulated and easily pushed toward a "flavor of the month".  In this case gun control.  Check this out via The Free Beacon.
Researchers from Northeastern University said on Monday that school shootings are not on the rise over the past decade and remain rare events.

James Alan Fox, the Lipman Family Professor of Criminology, Law, and Public Policy at Northeastern, and Emma Fridel, who is currently completing her doctorate at the school, revealed this week that their research indicates school shootings remain "incredibly rare events." Their findings, which are set to be published later this year, indicate that shooting incidents which involve students have actually declined since the 1990s.

The research team determined that, "on average, mass murders occur between 20 and 30 times per year, and about one of those incidents on average takes place at a school." They said the rate of students killed in school shootings is only a quarter of what it was in the early 1990s.

"There is not an epidemic of school shootings," Fox said.
Story here. 

Just plain wow.  The dangers of a media that is on the side of a particular party is dangerous.

They can pick and choose whatever narrative they want.

Fact to prove the point?

The issue of school shootings.  The issue of crime being over the top in the inner city but being ignored.  The fact that children in the inner city have been suffering an epidemic of violence for years.

The difference. Their allies run those cities.

It's a cliche now but it has me raging, screaming at the moon and punching walls.  Look at the plight of Chicago's South Side.  Good people living in fear, bad people running wild, police paralyzed by individuals that care more for CRIMINALS than they do for law abiding citizens, failure to fully punish those criminals for gun crimes and the press ignoring it.

Fast forward to Broward County.

There you have a liberal Sheriff that shouts about gun control, a cowardly SRO and a failure of the system to protect (although according to the Supreme Court they don't have that responsibility...I keep telling you people that its up to each individual) and what do they focus on? 

Gun control.

Freaking typical!
