An average of 17 people are killed every year in school shootings from the last 5 years. There are 50.76 million secondary to post-secondary school age children. That is about a 0.000033% chance, or 1 in 2.99 million of any given child being killed in any given year in a school shooting.
It is estimated that Earth as a whole is struck by an average of more than a hundred lightning bolts every second. The odds of becoming a lightning victim in the U.S. in any one year is 1 in 700,000. The odds of being struck in your lifetime is 1 in 3,000.
So it is much more likely that you are going to get struck by lightning.
In the U.S.
Odds of getting struck by lightning = 1 in 700,000
Odds of getting shot in school = 1 in 2.99 million
It is 4.27 times more likely you will get struck by lightning.
So why are some politicians seeking gun control?
It is about disarming America. Question their motives!
They just can't figure out how to get citizens to give up a right So they kept telling you, the law-abiding citizens are at fault because they possess guns to defend themselves. Not the criminals. You - you are at fault.

2017 gun sales surprise: Second best ever, 25 million, more 'socially acceptable'
by Paul Bedard | Jan 3, 2018, 11:55 AM
The long predicted crash of the gun market following President Trump’s election victory over gun-banner Hillary Rodham Clinton never showed up and 2017 became the second highest year of sales after 2016, the FBI reported Wednesday.
According to the agency, there were 25,235,215 gun background checks conducted in 2017, and many in the industry say the National Instant Criminal Background Check System is the best gauge of sales.

After a school shooting left 17 people dead in Parkland, Florida, survivors Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg are demanding action from officials in Washington on gun control.
We don't need Red Flag laws because we already have laws to pick mentally ill up. We just have no place to put them. Therefore, they get released usually same day to do whatever they want.
A Code similar to this exists in every state to detain mentally ill. The problem is LEO picks them up and they are released within 8 hours same day because we have no mental institutions to hold them. Hmmmm... Maybe there was a reason we had mental institutions.

Governor Ralph Northam has announced a comprehensive package of legislation that he claims will prevent gun violence and improve the safety of Virginia’s citizens and communities.
He said the package includes measures to require universal background checks; establish an Extreme Risk Protective Order; reinstate Virginia’s One Handgun a Month law; prohibit individuals subject to final protective orders from possessing firearms; ban assault firearms; prevent children from accessing firearms; and require individuals to report lost or stolen firearms to law enforcement.
Other lawmakers will patron legislation to ban the sale, purchase, possession, and transport of assault firearms in the Commonwealth.
The bill also modifies the definition of assault firearm to any firearm that is equipped with a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds of ammunition.
Included in the "gun violence" numbers are suicides which account for two thirds of the 'murders'.
Breaking News You Will Never Hear in Main Stream Fake News -
While the liberal anti-gun main stream news reports every move of anti-gun radicals, 400,000 additional law abiding U.S. citizens quietly go buy guns in the month of March 2018 alone. That is up from the spike of February 2018. FBI had already predicted 4.2% increase in gun sales this year over last year which was the second strongest year ever since FBI started running firearms purchase background checks in 1998. 2016 was the highest number of background checks in a year in the U.S. Women are the new big buyers. That really says something! See the FBI numbers below. The media is becoming more and more distrusted because they mislead, misreport, leave out important facts, put out unimportant stories, and just plain old lie.
You know what I say ladies and gentlemen, if these companies don't respect our right to protect ourselves, our families and our property they should never get any of our money. If these companies would take our money and use it to take our rights and freedom away we should never give them any more money! Hit them in the pocket! We are the vast majority and they have caved to the vocal group of radical anti-gun nuts! Boycott them!!! Call up and cancel your reservations and make sure to get a rep or email company management and tell them why!
BOYCOTT ALL THE ABOVE COMPANIES!

Not really old news because Michael Bloomberg, the self-made anarchist, just spent 2 million in gun control digital ads in last 2 weeks since Dayton and ElPaso shootings. By the way, Google blocks our digital ads for gun shows.
A firearm-related election mailing with a New York City return address had in bolded capital letters on the front of the mailing: “THE NRA GETS AN F FOR ABANDONING VIRGINIA’S SPORTSMEN.”
Needless to say, the idea of Bloomberg advocating for any gun owners is absurd. Michael Bloomberg's hypocrisy knows no limits. He has private armed security. The only guns he is interested in keeping the ones he has to protect him, his family's lives and property against us low life commoners. He doesn't care a thing about our rights to keep our guns for our protection. As a matter of fact, he wants us disarmed. What is his motivation? What does he have to gain by disarming us?
