GQ Editor Confuses Fireworks For
Mass Shooting, Goes On Anti-NRA Rant

By AWR Hawkins. 19th November, 2015

On November 19, GQ editor Jim Nelson launched a tirade against the NRA based on an experience this past summer in which he admittedly confused the sounds of fireworks for a mass shooting.

Nelson appears to been worked up from accepting highly exaggerated figures on mass shootings - he claims there have been "305 mass shootings in America this year alone"- so the sound of fireworks launching and exploding in the air seemed to him the just another mass shooting that gun control proponents claim happens every day.

Similar highly elevated numbers on mass shootings have been attained by others who discard the FBI's definition of a mass shooting - a shooting which results in four or more fatalities - and replace it with the much lower threshold which considers "four or more people shot in one event" as a mass shooting.........

Once again, incorrect or even fabricated figures have been used to facilitate anti-gun rhetoric and hysteria. It is amazing just how much and how often we see such anti-rights paranoia, which completely ignores our innate right of self-defense and only serves to further fuel other antagonists.
