Two articles caught my attention yesterday. One was from the Free Beacon, about school shootings-
That count, created by Everytown for Gun Safety, claims there have been 11 school shootings thus far in 2018. However, nearly all of the incidents included alongside the Marshall County shooting bear little or no resemblance to that shooting or other well-publicized school shootings, like those at Sandy Hook Elementary or Columbine High School. None of the other events included in the gun-control group’s count feature more than one injury, most featured no injuries at all, and one involved a BB gun being shot at a school bus window.

Another one is from the NRA, about the VPC-
Last week, the Violence Policy Center shared their analysis of 2016 fatal injury statistics, which are released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and available for public analysis. VPC’s headline: HERE.

It’s amazing what happens when you look at ALL the data, not just cherry picking what floats your boat! The left has a habit of skewing data to match their preconceived notion of what ‘they’ believe is the truth. Sadly, very few folks ever look at ALL the data to get an actual (bigger) picture of what the data says. I’m firmly convinced they count on that, especially with the younger generations that do ‘sound bites’, and don’t bother to look beyond the surface.
This is much like the climate debate, where they are trying to skew RAW data, or hide it completely, since it doesn’t match their agenda.
