I’m a big fan of The Trace. Bloomberg’s anti-gun agitprop machine gives me immediate access to the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex’s thinking. Sure, I wish The Trace didn’t exist. But its existence keeps me in-the-know. Their latest gambit: an interactive map showing how many “shootings” occurred in a given Americans’ immediate vicinity. Searching my 10-20, it seems there were . . .
2 shootings within a 5-mile radius of this point in the past year, 2 fatal and 0 non-fatal. The closest shooting was 4.80 miles away.
In fact, the closest shooting was a suicide 100 yards from where I’m sitting.
Hmmm. I wonder if we can rely on the data provided by the “nonprofit, nonpartisan project known as the Gun Violence Archive” in conjunction with Slate and The Trace. Which proves our previous assertion that there is an anti-gun rights “journolist” feeding the forces ranged against firearms freedom.
Anyway, how many shootings in your locale? And why would that make you want to support gun control, as opposed to tooling-up?
