GUN FACT
The Lee-Enfield is a bolt-action, magazine-fed, repeating-rifle that served as the main firearm used by the military forces of the British Empire and Commonwealth during the first half of the 20th century. It was the British Army's standard rifle from its official adoption in 1895 until 1957. The WWI versions are often referred to as the "SMLE," which is short for the common "Short Magazine Lee-Enfield" variant. This rifle was trusted and used through many wars through out the 20th century by many groups.

Did you know that legal magazine limits only effect law abiding citizens,and that if someone tries to murder you with a gun they don't care if it's legal let alone how many rounds it holds. So who exactly is this law for who is it giving the advantage to?

Did you know that silencers don’t actually silence firearms like in the movies? They simply suppress the sound of a round as it goes off, and leaves the barrel of the gun. This makes it so you can fire some guns without ear protection. Tho legally they are named Silencers, instead of being named after their function which is to Suppressor the boom.

HOW A BOTCHED STUDY MISLED THE WORLD ABOUT THE U.S. SHARE OF MASS PUBLIC SHOOTINGS

In 2015, President Obama made a claim following a mass shooting that has since become a widely accepted narrative: “I say this every time we’ve got one of these mass shootings; this just doesn’t happen in other countries… We have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world.” The White House followed up the assertion by pointing to a then-unpublished paper by criminologist Adam Lankford claiming that the United States had 31% of public mass shooters between 1966 and 2012, despite having less than 5% of the world population. It concluded that our high rate of firearm ownership was to blame.

The press ate it up. “Americans make up about 4.4% of the global population but own 42% of the world’s guns. From 1966 to 2012, 31% of the gunmen in mass shootings worldwide were American, according to a study by Adam Lankford, a professor at the University of Alabama.” reported the New York Times. The Washington Post: “American exceptionalism and the ‘exceptionally American’ problem of mass shootings”. Time magazine: “Why the US has 31% of the World’s Mass Shootings”. CNN: “Why the US has the most mass shootings”. The Los Angeles Times - “Why the U.S. is No. 1—in mass shootings”. Similar stories were published in hundreds of outlets around the world.

And they’re all wrong.

New research indicates that, not only does America not have the most mass shootings, we actually have far fewer as a percent of our population than the rest of the world. The study finds that, despite having 4.6% of the world’s population and 40% of the world’s firearms, just 2.88% of the world’s mass shootings take place here.

Researchers used the same criteria that the original paper purported to use: a mass shooting which killed four or more victims in public places such as malls, schools, places of worship, businesses, government buildings, etc., motivated by hate or terror or crime etc. They excluded shootings that resulted from gang or drug violence or were the government sponsored (ie. war). *Continued in comments*

The first primitive firearms originated in 10th-century China when bamboo tubes containing gunpowder and pellet projectiles were mounted on spears into the one-person-portable fire lance, which was later used as a shock weapon to good effect in the Siege of De'an in 1132. In the 13th century the Chinese invented the metal-barrelled hand cannon, widely considered the true ancestor of all firearms. #guns #trivia #firearms #facts #gunfacts #thegunnerscraft #firearmfactfriday #history #learning #guntraining #sdi_school

NPR: “THE SCHOOL SHOOTINGS THAT WEREN’T”

The U.S. Education Department reported that in the 2015-2016 school year, “nearly 240 schools ... reported at least 1 incident involving a school-related shooting” regardless of whether anyone was hurt. It’s a number that is far higher than most other estimates.

But NPR, not exactly known as a conservative media outlet, decided to investigate the claim. It reached out to every one of those schools repeatedly over the course of three months and found that more than two-thirds of these reported incidents never happened.

In 161 cases, schools or districts attested that no incident took place. In four cases they found that the reported incident didn't meet the government's parameters for a shooting. 59 couldn’t be confirmed either by the schools or media reports.

NPR was able to confirm just 11 reported incidents, either directly with schools or through media reports. A separate investigation by the ACLU also was able to confirm fewer than a dozen of the incidents in the government's report, while 59% were confirmed reporting errors. For comparison, the Everytown for Gun Safety database, citing media reports, listed just 29 shootings at K-12 schools between mid-August 2015 and June 2016.
The Education Department, asked for comment on the report, said it relies on school districts to provide accurate information in the survey responses.

The data comes from the “Civil Rights Data Collection”, which requires every public school — more than 96,000 — to answer questions on a wide range of issues. Schools have complained about the reporting burden and complexity of the survey, and independent reviews have confirmed widespread clerical errors related to writing numbers in the wrong box or misunderstanding the questions.

Yet the report has been cited by the media and gun control advocates in their quest to further restrict firearms.

Fun fact: The English have to mark their cannons with an arrow to tell the cannoneers which end is the dangerous one. #gunfacts # cannonfacts
