Gun violence is schools is a quarter what it was 25 years ago, even with the tragic mass shootings in recent years thrown in.
But Big Left and Big Media have succeeded in convincing a fair number of people that 2+2=5:
Twenty years after the Columbine High School shooting made practicing for armed intruders as routine as fire drills, many parents have only tepid confidence in the ability of schools to stop a gunman, according to a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
And while most Americans consider schools less safe than they were 20 years ago, the poll finds a majority say schools aren’t at fault for shootings. Bullying, the availability of guns, the internet and video games share more of the blame.
If you tell people the sky is falling often and consistently enough, people will start carrying umbrellas.
