FiveThirtyEight Debunks Left’s Gun Control Narrative

FiveThirtyEight, a website run by Nate Silver, published [1] gun violence statistics that debunked many of the Left’s anti-gun, pro-gun control narratives.

In their data, FiveThirtyEight pointed out that mass shootings are rare, perpetrators of mass shootings are different from one another, the majority of gun crimes are not mass shootings, and other factors contribute to gun crimes in America, such as domestic violence.

They also point out that two-thirds of gun violence deaths are suicides, mostly older, white and male, in addition to other facts that most gun crime victims are black (66 percent) and most gun violence victims are between the age of 15 and 34 years.
