Mass shootings are not up and have been flat for forty years. This mass shootings increase mania was created by Obama in September of 2015. Obama used an FBI report titled A Study of Active Shooter Incidents, 2000 – 2013 that was authored by professors at Texas State University.
The authors of the report were called out for using a misleading start date of the year 2000 with only a couple of mass shootings to manipulate a trend when all studies go back to the 1970s or at least to the peak in 1993, purposefully omitted twenty different mass shooting incidents to also manipulate a upward trend, and mixing the wrong FBI definitions and data between their definition and data of an “active shooter” and a “mass shooter.” After being called out on their manipulated data, the authors admitted to using manipulated data and creating their own data making the report worthless. When the correct data was used and the proper timelines were used dating back to the 1970s that the authors did not use, when the correct data from the FBI’s “active shooter” and a “mass shooter” data were used, there has been no increase in mass shootings.
If a case is to be made, it would be that mass shootings have decreased based on population growth. The numbers are flat since the mid 1970s and the population in 1976 was 218 million and today it is 322 million. From a statistical point of view, mass shootings have dropped by around one-third.

Only the state should have weapons. The people should be disarmed and their allegiance should only be to the rule of the state and its politic
