How Many Mass Shooters Have Been Members Of The NRA?
How Many Mass Shooters Have Been Members Of The NRA? by Michael Snyder – The Economic Collapse Blog
The left is using the tragedy in Sutherland Springs to demonize the NRA. Personally, I am so sick and tired of these relentless attacks, and I am proud to stand with the NRA, the Gun Owners Of America and every other organization that is working hard to defend our 2nd Amendment rights. As you will see below, it was actually the intervention of an NRA instructor named Stephen Willeford that saved countless lives in Sutherland Springs. And would you like to know how many mass shooters have been members of the NRA? The answer is zero…
Based on the arbitrary definition of a shooting involving at least four deaths, there had been 130 mass shootings in the United States as of June 6, 2017, going back over the last 51 years. (This does not include gang killings, killings that began as other crimes such as robberies, and killings that involved only the shooter’s family.)
Information about how the guns were obtained is incomplete, but 248 different guns were used, at least 141 of which were obtained legally and at least 39 of which were obtained illegally; handguns were the most common weapons used, usually more than one, each of which takes about two seconds to reload, making limited magazines (commonly incorrectly referred to as “clips”) a minor inconvenience. None of the shooters were known to be members of the NRA.
The bad guys in our society are always going to find ways to get guns. Just look at what is happening down in Honduras for example. They have some of the strictest gun laws on the entire planet, and yet their entire nation has become a war zone.
Some say that we have a “mental illness problem”, but I would describe it as a moral and social decay problem. Culture really matters, and our culture has been going down the toilet for decades. If we don’t do something about the rampant decay in our society, violence is going to continue to get worse.
And as violence continues to escalate, I want as many responsibly armed citizens around as possible. Instead of vilifying the NRA, we should be thankful that men like Stephen Willeford are willing to act like heroes…
So much for those who want to vilify the NRA in the wake of the Texas massacre in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Sunday: Stephen Willeford, the man who shot and chased the man who killed 26 people in a Texas church, is an NRA instructor. Willeford insisted, “I’m no hero; I am not. I think my God, my Lord, protected me and gave me the skills to do what needed to be done.”
It is a fact that most mass shooters tend to be to the left on the political spectrum, and most of those that have attempted to attacks presidents throughout history have also been on the left. Just check out this list…
