Mass Shootings Ignored
There have been multiple mass shootings this year that have not been covered by the main stream media. There is a particular reason that they weren’t covered.
One reason really.
It doesn’t fit their narrative of “Nazi bad” or “white man bad.”
That place? Chicago.
Gun Violence in Chicago
On Wednesday, August 21st 2019 there was 1 killed and 3 wounded. From the relatively recent change in the definition of what a mass shooting is, this is considered a mass shooting.
Read about that shooting here.
On Tuesday, August 20th there were 2 killed and 3 wounded.
Another mass shooting. Check that out here.
Another on August 17th 2019, 3 dead and 22 wounded. A mass shooting. A gunman opened fire on a home where children lived. One of the victims was a 12-year-old who was shot in the shoulder and stomach. One of her lungs collapsed.

Then on August 3rd through the 4th another 7 dead and 52 wounded. Over the course of two days 59 people were shot. This particular weekend was so bad that Mount Sinai Hospital in Chicago had to stop accepting patients because they were so overwhelmed with gunshot victims.

On July 28th? You guessed it. Another mass shooting of 8 dead and 40 wounded. One of those killed was a 3-year-old boy.

These examples are only since the end of July. This is happening ALL year.
These stories have not made it to the mainstream media. Why? They don’t fit the narrative that the left is pushing. These crimes were not committed by white men. Instead they focus on El Paso, the Garlic Festive, and Dayton.
They won’t talk about the lives destroyed by gun violence in Chicago, a city with some of the strictest gun control laws.
Does this prove that strict gun control is not the answer? Does this prove that disarming legal, law abiding citizens is a bad idea?
Yes, yes it does. When you strip away a person’s means of protection you can expect more illegal weapons to end up on the street and more people dead. That’s what happens when someone can’t defend themselves. They end up dead.
The 2A was written for a reason. That reason was to acknowledge that citizens need a means of protection. This includes from a tyrannical government and their neighbors.
