Democrats, and the anti-gun left try the gambit of the “far-right shooter” every time there is a mass shooting. But the truth is that the “far-right shooter” is a myth.
History shows that there is no preponderance of “right-wingers” perpetrating mass shooting.
Per gun expert John R. Lott:
Of the 82 mass public shootings from January 1998 to May 2021, 9% have known or alleged ties to white supremacists, neo-Nazis, or anti-immigrant views. But many of those, such as the Buffalo murderer, are environmentalist authoritarians.
Another 9% of mass public shootings are carried out by people of middle eastern origin, despite them making up only 0.4% of the US population. Whites and Hispanics are underrepresented as a share of the population. Blacks, Asians, and American Indians commit these attacks at a slightly higher rate than their share of the population.
Seventy-one percent of mass public shooters have no identifiable political views.
Even violence against pro-life people and organizations this year has been over 22 times more frequent that violence against pro-choice groups.
Yet these leftist fools don’t wait ten minutes after a report of a mass shooting before blaming a MAGA fan, a Republican voter, or a “right-winger” for the shooting.
History shows they are almost never right.Commentary
