Dem Lawmaker LIES About Mass Shooting Deaths During ANTI-GUN Speech

Democrat Rep. Jamie Raskin took to the House floor to deliver an impassioned speech against gun-carry legislation, and lied about the number of people killed in mass shootings.

Raskin claimed there had been nearly 400 shootings where 4 or more people were killed in the United States in 2017, an estimate that was off by more than 350.

“Since January, we’ve had 397 gun massacres in America, defined as a slaying of 4 people or more,” Raskin said during the debate over national gun-carry reciprocity legislation.

Raskin didn’t cite a source for his wildly inaccurate numbers.

A Washington Free Beacon review of the gun-control advocacy group Mass Shooting Tracker’s statistics shows there have been 40 shootings where 4 or more people were killed between January 1, 2017, and December 4, 2017. That’s 357 fewer shootings than the congressman identified.
