FACTS AND FIGURES: US Schools Are the SAFEST They’ve Been in DECADES
Posted On 01 Mar 2018 /
National radio host Buck Sexton injected facts and figures into the nation’s emotional debate over gun policy and mental health Wednesday night, pointing out American schools are the safest they’ve been in decades despite liberal fear mongering.
“Schools are safer now than they’ve been in decades. What if we finally just look at each other and say, ‘Making policy based on emotion and not on facts and logic and the numbers is a bad idea,’” said Buck.
“If we believe the numbers, and people can try and come after the numbers, here’s the real truth in the gun discussion in this country right now: There’s almost nothing we can do to stop the kinds of school shootings that we’ve seen as a function of policy, and school shootings are not the epidemic we’ve been led to believe they are,” he added.
“School shootings are not some recent plague, school shootings are not accelerating as a problem in this country, and it is very unlikely that anything that’s being considered right now would prevent any of the major school shootings that we’ve seen,” Sexton said.
