The gun control harpies are out in full force today using the anniversary of Sandy Hook to push their agenda. And of course Jim Acosta was front and center pushing said agenda, and hilariously citing Vox.
Because everything is stupid.
Since Sandy Hook there have been at least 1,552 mass shootings, with at least 1,767 people killed and 6,227 wounded. https://t.co/RZeFDHhYmR

So does someone like Acosta tweeting Vox open up some spacetime continuum? Is this a sign of the end of times?
And if you actually read the story you’ll notice that Vox actually UPPED the number of mass shootings since Acosta tweeted … why isn’t CNN covering those 24 mass shootings that happened in the last three hours?
TFW Jim Acosta cites Vox and everyone points and laughs. https://t.co/couxPZJsIN

This is a lie. If a politician said this, Jim Acosta would interrupt the press conference to live-fact-check him with readily available FBI statistics.

Any minute now, Jim will insist that he’s the REAL news around these here parts.
From the article: "Under those terms, mass shootings don’t appear to be increasing." and "it’s worth noting that mass shootings make up a tiny portion of America’s firearm deaths." pic.twitter.com/SXDrzloiNf

During this same time period, approximately 50,000 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes that involved an alcohol-impaired driver. We need common sense alcohol control now!https://t.co/aacCyiqy9X

BAN ALL THE CARS.
Define "mass shooting"

This is such a disingenuous stat I can't believe anyon….
Oh, @Cnn guy citing Vox.
Yeah, that tracks.

You're quoting VOX?
What's next, an article on the bridge between Gaza and the West Bank?

The jokes do indeed seem to write themselves.
This is the worse definition of mass shooting imaginable. By these statistics, incidents with 0 fatalities can be considered mass shootings

Definitions and facts are super oppressive and a sign of white privilege.
Straight up lie.
Jim isn’t even trying anymore.

Trying for the media is so 2007.

Fake News using fake statistics
