States With Background Checks for Those Who Buy Guns and Bullets Also Have Fewer School Shootings

An analysis of recent school shootings suggests a way to make them less likely: Mandatory background checks.
States that required background checks for gun buyers were about half as likely to experience a school shooting compared with states with no such requirement, a new study reports.

More BS study by tyrants!

Oregon has mandatory background checks but that didn't prevent Columbine or Umpqua College. I'm calling BS on this story.

"States that required background checks for gun buyers .... "

It's a FEDERAL requirement, idiot. FEDERAL. THAT means EVERY state must use a NICS check.

Thus how can you conclude ANYTHING about the number of school shootings in relation to firearms checks.

San Bernardino Christmas party, Taft High School, and others. B.S. Cali, your state has provided bogus stats and will only get worst in the near future.

Begin with a lie, and the rest of your screed becomes suspect.

All states have background checks pursuant to federal law.

None of those states have background checks for purchasing ammunition, and of states that do, the "odds" claim is pure speculation. To prove that claim, you must show that without them, those states would be more susceptable, which is impossible to prove.

Get off it. Everybody, and I mean EVERYBODY knows that you guys blow liberal smoke, and liberal thinking defies natural law.

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it. Thomas Paine
