Fail: Hillary Claims Over 230 Shootings in 6 Years

Hillary is peddling a bold-faced lie. Yes, yes, we know that’s nothing new.

This headline is really more for our readers’ entertainment value because some lies are so blatantly untrue, one must suspend reality to ponder how Hillary thinks people will believe it.

But this is America.

Most folks will believe just about anything.

Enter Hillary’s anti-gun hysteria in which she tweeted after the Florida shooting that there have been at least 230 shootings since 2012.

She went on to detail that that amounts to 5 shootings per month.

It’s the same misleading statistics we saw from the Washington Post.

Factcheck: there have been 25 fatal shootings since Columbine…nearly 20 years ago.

Here’s more from Daily Caller…

Hillary Clinton tweeted out a misleading statistic in the aftermath of the deadly school shooting this week in Florida.

Clinton tweeted a claim that there have been “over 230” school shootings since the Sandy Hook shooting, which occurred in 2012. The statistic comes from the gun control group Everytown.

The statistic is misleading because it lumps in the discharge of all firearms in or around a school in that time period. The accidental discharge of legal firearms, shootings where no one was injured or present at the school and suicides all are included in the statistic. There have been 25 fatal school shootings since Columbine.
