It seems that Nancy Pelosi says the problem mainly lies in Chicago and other Democrat-run hellholes according to her definition of mass shooting.

As this New York Times story acknowledges, mass shootings, as Nancy Pelosi says they happen, are perpetrated often by African Americans. She has to use a broad definition indeed to make her claims.

Here’s a black pastor pointing out what the New York Times revealed:

Mass shootings basically aren’t counted if the shooter can’t aim well enough to produce enough fatalities. But if we do count them, then we have to admit Blacks are much more likely to commit a mass shooting than whites.

The good news is that the traditional mass shooting is not becoming more common. CBS Chicago reports, “Study Finds Mass Killings Not On The Rise Over Past Decade.

Contrary to what you might think, mass murders are not on the rise, according to computer science professor Sheldon Jacobson.

Jacobson said there were 323 such killings – in which four or more people are killed in one incident – between January 2006 and October 2016. The mass killings appeared to be evenly distributed over that time, meaning their rate remained stable over the past decade, and did not spike during any particular season or year.
