New Everytown study on mass shootings points finger at assault weapons

More propaganda from Everytown.

In a recent analysis of mass shootings over the past half-decade, Everytown for Gun Safety claims women are targeted out of proportion, gun free zones are not a factor and assault weapons create 63 percent more deaths when used.

The group analyzed FBI and media reports of 110 incidents between January 2009 and July 2014 to produce their latest report, Analysis of Recent Mass Shootings. For reference, the group defined a mass shooting as a crime in which at least four people were murdered with a gun. In at least 46 of these incidents, the shooter’s self-termination was included in the total.

The study argues that women are disproportionally targeted by mass shootings by citing in their research, “Whereas only 14% of total gun homicide victims are women, 51% of mass shooting victims are women.”
