Some information shared in this brief political cartoon worth highlighting:

Democrats, progressives, and other gun control advocates regularly claim there were over 240 incidents of school shootings this year. They did the same thing in 2017 and 2016. But as shown above, that number includes a man going to a deserted school parking lot at night and shooting himself, no children or other adults present at the time. And though it’s not mentioned in the toon, I recall those statistics also including incidents like a stray shot fired from somewhere (no one knew where it came from) and going through a school window. Why is that counted?

According to the data these studies use, any discharge of a weapon counts as a “school shooting”, which anti-gun activists then purposely conflate with “mass shootings” even though the vast majority of the 240 incidents didn’t even involve injuries…

Florida lawmakers approve bill to arm teachers

FLORIDA LAWMAKERS APPROVE BILL TO ARM TEACHERSp28111059.jpg

ㅤ”The Florida House Appropriations Committee approved a bill Tuesday to implement measures to prevent future school shootings, including a $67 million program to train teachers to carry guns.
ㅤThe Tampa Bay Times reported that the Republican-controlled committee voted along party lines to approve a ‘school marshal’ program. The bill proposes putting 10 teachers trained to carry a gun in every school. The state’s Senate Appropriations Committee passed a similar bill on Tuesday.
ㅤThe state would reportedly cover the costs of background checks, drug testing, psychological exams and 132 hours of training, but doesn’t address whether teachers would have to buy a gun for themselves.
ㅤThe bill also includes provisions that impose a three-day waiting period for gun purchases in the state, raises the age requirement to buy a gun from 18 to 21 and calls for $400 million to improve school security.”
