What caused the mental health issue in New York? What was the result of SAFE Act & Red Flag laws? Why believe Cuomo is honest or effective?
November 7, 2019 – NO Soundbites Allowed – A promise was made to the public that Red Flag law would eliminate gun violence. It hasn’t happened. Even as over 100 citizens are targeted, and criminals…
The logic is therefore, if a firearm looks menacing it should be banned to enhance public safety. Given these actions, addressing the look of a firearm and mere possession as well as the broadest classifications of firearms and documentation of ownership, has the public become safer? No. Empirically, the only answer is no.
Perhaps the Assembly Bill S03719 and the Monroe County proposal are on the path to a solution that can help the public be more safe and secure. But as written, both proposals appear to provide no reason to believe that there would be improvement beyond the desire of 2nd Amendment.
Factually, mass shootings are the least common type of death in America. They are also the least common type of gun-related death.
This PSA is a great reminder why the Soupy Sales Incident is prohibited from airwaves, and is more likely to cause gun violence than prevent it.
Update – as predicted, as of this repost, there is no major news media outlet that we are aware of that have reviewed/noted or even acknowledged that statistics for mass shootings exist since 1980. Also, none of the major media questioned why the FBI presented the data with the odd timeframe, or the short-term trend figures isolated from the long-term reduction in mass shootings. Historically, the time period of the recent FBI mass shootings report indicates a reduction on a per incident and per person injured/killed basis versus the average.
