So…I debated that person and provided data that at best the number is around 60% are white male and far less than that are done with an assault rifle.
I try to stay informed so I can intelligent conversations.
Lets look at the 3 mass shootings in the last 2 weeks.
1st was Spa shootings in Ga. White male. Not sure of weapon though since I haven’t looked.
2nd was grogery store in Co. Non white male but did use AR 15 pistol.
3rd was the shooting in Orange Ca. Not white male and haven’t seen details on weapon yet.
A sampling of 3 is unreliable but in these cases, 1/3 were a white male. It also looks like only 1/3 on an AR 15 platform.
And yes I know when someone says 99% of anything it is usually incorrect.
We all have to be able to use facts to present our case. We (2a supporters) don’t get the luxury of just telling someone they are full of it.
Do I think I changed that persons mind? Nope. Not one bit. But I do think it had a positive impact on at least 1 of the others nearby.
