Gun-grabbing Communist Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) took to the floor of the US Senate to chide his colleagues on how they were responsible for school shootings.

"As we speak, there is a horrific scene playing out at a high school in south Florida," Murphy said.  "Turn on your television right now, you're going to see scenes of children running for their lives in what looks to be the 19th school shooting in this country and we have not even hit March."

Now, just a moment, what we have scene and did see are nothing more than children running.  That is true, but we've seen really nothing more.

With virtually every student in that school having a cell phone, there have been no, I repeat no, actual video of the shooter(s).  Not one video, not one photograph.  Keep that in mind when you take into account the vast about of citizen journalism done and the incredible amount of videos taken at school.  Where are the videos of the shooter, like what we witnessed at Columbine in 1999?

Second, 19?  Did I miss something?  Apparently, I didn't.  Those figures came from the liars like Shannon Watts at Everytown for Gun Safety.

Here's how Mrs. Watts skews her tally.

Consistent with expert advice and common sense, Everytown uses a straightforward, fair, and comprehensive definition for a school shooting: any time a firearm discharges a live round inside a school building or on a school campus or grounds, as documented by the press and, when necessary, confirmed through further inquiries with law enforcement or school officials. Incidents in which guns were brought into schools but not discharged, or where the firearm was discharged off school grounds, are not included. The database is updated as new shootings occur or as new evidence emerges about prior incidents.

So, exactly what occurred in these shootings?  Take a look at Everytown's numbers:

22 January: Italy High School, Italy, Texas – A 16-year-old student opened fire with a semi-automatic handgun in the school cafeteria, wounding another student.

22 January: NET Charter High School, Gentilly, Louisiana – An unknown person fired shots at students from a vehicle in the school parking lot. One person was injured (though not by gunfire).

23 January: Marshall County High School, Benton, Kentucky – A 15-year-old student opened fire with a handgun on school grounds, killing two and injuring 18.

25 January: Murphy High School, Mobile, Alabama – A student fired a handgun into the air during a fight with another student. No injuries were reported.

26 January: Dearborn High School, Dearborn, Michigan – Shots were fired during a fight in the school parking lot. No injuries were reported.

31 January: Lincoln High School, Philadelphia – A fight during a basketball game resulted in the shooting death of a 32-year-old man outside the school.

14 February: Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Parkland, Florida – A 19-year-old former student opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle, killing 17 and injuring 14.

20 January: Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, North Carolina – A 21-year-old was shot and killed during a fight at a party on school grounds.

5 February: – Oxon Hill High School, Oxon Hill, Maryland – A student was shot and injured in the school parking lot during an attempted robbery.

10 January: California State University, San Bernardino, California – Bullets were fired through a window, with no suspects or motive identified.

8 February: Metropolitan High School, New York, NY – A student fired a gun into the floor of a classroom.

10 January: Grayson College, Denison, Texas – A student fired a weapon belonging to an adviser, believing it wasn’t loaded. No injuries were reported.

1 February: Salvador B. Castro Middle School, Los Angeles – A semi-automatic handgun brought to school by a 12-year-old student accidentally went off. Four students were injured.

5 February: Harmony Learning Center, Maplewood, Minnesota – A third-grader pressed the trigger of a law enforcement officer’s handgun. The weapon went off but no one was injured.

10 January: Coronado Elementary School, Sierra Vista, Arizona – A middle school student shot himself in the bathroom of the school and was pronounced dead at the scene.

4 January: New Start High School, near Seattle – Bullets fired by an unidentified shooter entered an administrative office. No injuries were reported.

15 January: Wiley College, Marshall, Texas – Gunshots fired from a vehicle in the parking lot of a college dorm entered through a window, but did not injure residents.

Notice that Everytown never mentions the many drills where police officers fire their weapons, even using blanks, such as has been reported at the Florida school shooting.  Also, note that the number of deaths are relatively small, with many of these incidents resulting in absolutely no one wounded or killed.

However, I thought Senator Murphy would be a little more on his game and praise the value of "gun free zones," you know those places that DC has illegally declared to be such in which over 90% of mass shootings occur?  But, he didn't do so.

Murphy then told a huge whopper.

"This happens nowhere else other than the united States of America," he said.  "This epidemic of mass slaughter.  This scourge of school shooting after school shooting.  It only happens here not because of coincidence, not because of bad luck, but as a consequence of our inaction.  We are responsible for a level of mass atrocity that happens in this country with zero parallel to anywhere else."

Well, hold on there partner.  The US is not the only place to have school shootings.

In 1907, Chile saw a school shooting that almost numbered the total dead in the 9/11 attacks.  Furthermore, the US has not seen a total more than many other countries in terms of school shootings.  Take a look at this chart provided by Wikipedia and note the first 7 listings that did not occur in the US.  I mean they are certainly not on our side here.

So, right off the bat, Senator Murphy is merely providing propaganda, not facts.

Finally, after lying through his teeth, Senator Murphy puts forth the emotional plea.

"As a parent, it scares me to death that this body doesn't take seriously the safety of my children," he said.  "And it seems like a lot of parents in south Florida will be asking that same question later today."

Well, that body does not exist to make your children safe.  It exists to uphold the Constitution, of which the Second Amendment is a part.  If you care so much about your children's safety, teach them at home like the Lord commands in Deuteronomy 6.  You can get started with a free curriculum here and you will be able to protect your own kids without infringing on the rights of other Americans for your gun confiscation agenda.

However, what Senator doesn't tell you is that he remains silent on the holocaust that is murdering upwards of 60 million of America's children under the guise of being "pro-choice."  Do we hear Senator Murphy decrying this injustice?  Nope, and yet, that is something that is clearly laid out in one of our founding documents as the premier right given to us by our Creator.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. -Declarliarsation of Independence

Somehow, Senator Murphy finds himself on the side that would stand against our founders and infringe on our rights while pontificating about their emotional imbalance and inability to correctly care for their children as they should.  Keep that in mind the next time Communists like Senator Murphy cry about school shootings while allowing 3,000 innocent babies to be dismembered, beheaded, and murdered every day under their watch.
