Skip to comments.Charts: Half the deadliest shootings in U.S. history happened in past six years (Obama's Fault)
Posted on 09/18/2013 8:40:21 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd
If you consider the deadliest mass shootings in American history -- at this point, shootings with 12 or more fatalities -- you'll find the first one happens in 1949. A deranged lone gunman's "Walk of Death" in Camden, New Jersey, claimed the lives of 13 people.
The next one happened in 1966, when a lone gunman climbed the bell tower at the University of Texas and began shooting. He killed 16 people. The first half of the list of these horrible shootings, as Rachel pointed out on the show last night, took place over half a century. The second half took place over just six years, from 2007 until yesterday.

Roger that. Never got into amrad but appreciate those that have the time and inclination to do some good work.
OK thanks. But only one right?
I dont know if it would even have to be something as elaborate as MK-ULTRA, really. Some people have mental conditions which react poorly to SSRIs and other medications. You find some people with unsteady mental problems that you flag as potentially dangerous, put a gun on them, and sooner or later one of them is going to go off on their own. Later on you release news stories that their guns were acquired legally.
As for Alex Jones, he’s entertaining but I always take the guy with a good dosage of salt. Still, every once in a while he does stumble upon something interesting.
Thanks for the ping.
One reason for the surge in mass shootings under Obama:
he’s been pushing ‘gun free zones’ or as criminals call them: open shooting galleries.
It sure is. Your ability to COUNT is fantastic!
A visual of the deadliest shootings (the only way I know how to make it visual without a graph) (One very visible shooting didn’t even make this list because there were only (ugh) 6 fatalities in Tucson when Judge John Roll was killed and Gabby Giffords among the wounded. This list only includes when there were 8 or more fatalities besides the shooter):
1966 Aug 1 (18 dead)
1973 Jan 7 (9 dead)
1982 Aug 20 (8 dead) + Sept 25 (13 dead)
1984 May 17 (8 dead) + July 18 (21 dead)
1989 Sept 14 (8 dead)
1991 Oct 16 (23 dead)
1993 July 1 (8 dead)
1999 Apr 20 (13 dead) + July 29 (12 dead)
2005 March 21 (8 dead)
2007 April 16 (32 dead) + Dec 5 (8 dead)
2009 March 10 (10 dead) + March 29 (8 dead) + Apr 3 (13 dead) + Nov 5 (13 dead)
2010 Jan 19 (8 dead) + Aug 3 (8 dead) + Oct 12 (8 dead)
2011 Oct 12 (8 dead)
2012 July 20 (12 dead) + Dec 14 (27 dead)
2013 Sept 16 (12 dead)
IOW, those listings are only those shootings with several more fatalities than in the Tucson shooting that really set aflame the anti-gun push here lately.
During EVERY YEAR of Obama’s “presidency”, there has been AT LEAST one massacre worse than Tucson. His first year in office there were FOUR shootings worse than Tucson.
Oops. In 2010 there shouldn’t be one for Oct 12. It was Oct 12, 2011.
If you look at a visual (at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/3068218/posts?page=57#57 ) of the frequency of these massacres (only those with at least 2 more fatalities than the Gabby Giffords shooting) , you see the massacres under Obama began in March of 2009. There were FOUR massacres that year and at least one every year since then.
The run on the bank was in early September of 2008. These massacres began suddenly 3 months after Obama took office. For 6 months after the run on the bank there were no massacres and then after 3 months of Obama in the White House we had 3 massacres within a month’s time and another one later that year. Each of them more deadly than Tucson.
That doesn’t sound like it’s bad-economy-induced “snapping”.
Makes me wonder how long the MK Ultra stuff has to be going in order to have a plausible “schizophrenia/mental illness” cover for assassins. Three months?
I believe that’s correct.

Can we at least act like we don’t know you? ‘Cause that’s ‘pert near a mortal sin, ya know. ;-)
