Mass Shooting in Boston

What, you didn’t hear about it?

Yeah because rather than the FBI Definition, it’s the Anti-Gun Definition:

Boston was rocked by a burst of violence around midnight Friday, as five men were shot in two separate incidents, Police Commissioner William Evans said.

4 shot in one incident, one shot in another….BTW in the most anti-gun city in the most anti-gun state in America.

This will ONLY be talked about as one more stat in the raw numbers talking about how many “Mass shootings” we’ve had.

Because they are exceedingly rare when you go by the FBI definition where 4 or more people are killed EXCLUDING the attacker, but when you tweak it to the very similar sounding anti-gun lobby definition of “4 or more people INJURED INCLUDING the attacker” suddenly a jilted lover kills his wife and her boyfriend in the park, then shoots himself, and a bystander trips running away and you have a “Spree Killing”.

Of course even that story is rare, what we have here is a gang land attack where some hood-rat shot at a bunch of other hood rats, and managed to connect with 4 of them.

It’s Called “Monday” in the parts of America controlled by gangs and gun control.

“Gun Death” Too Easy

So the reason I do the “Gun Death” Files is to show how insane the anti-gun obsession with the metric of “Gun Death”. Of course without guns there would be no “Gun Death” (and their goal is banning guns, not making us safer) but if there are still dangerous people around, the “Gun Death” files show just how easy it would be for murderers to murder in a world without guns.

One of the arguments the anti-gunners give for using the “Gun Death” Metric, is because guns make murder “too easy”, and there is the implication that lawful gun owners like us are just one bad day away from going on a killing spree.

This mornings new headlines got me thinking of this. First in Cambridge Mass:

About 3:58 a.m. Wednesday two people allegedly stole a bottle of water at the Richie’s Shell station on Cambridge Street.

The clerk went outside and confronted the men about it. When he did, one of the men got a bag from his car and pulled out a gun and shot at the clerk.

I’m curious on the “Confrontation”, was he trying recover the bottle of water. That would be a stupid move. Or was he going to take a picture of the car, license plate, and thieves so assist the police? I probably would have done that….but maybe not given that this is a self-service gas station (one I’ve used personally BTW) so the property likely has a dozen cameras.

I will take a moment to point out that these low-rent criminals who would steal a fucking bottle of water (seriously if you’re going to steal something, at least make it a soda….I’d say grab a beer or a bottle of wine, but this is Massachusetts, you can’t buy alcohol in convenience stores here) had a gun. You can’t get a carry permit in Cambridge or neighboring Boston unless you’re politically connected. This is the most anti-gun state in the union, and yet somebody was shot over a bottle of water.

Still good news:

The clerk was taken to Cambridge Hospital with non-life threatening injuries (police say the bullet grazed his foot or leg) and has since been released and is working with police to piece together the events.

Glad he’s OK, he could have been killed. But meanwhile in Boston:

A man was stabbed to death Tuesday evening at a barber shop in Boston’s Hyde Park neighborhood, according to police.

The Boston Police Department says the man was stabbed in the upper torso following an argument that took place shortly before 5:45 p.m. at the La Familia Barber Shop.

The victim was taken to Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The victim’s name has not been released.

If the gun was so much more deadly, why is the man shot ok, and the man stabbed, dead. Turns out both weapons are about as deadly, and honestly I don’t have the time to deep-dive on that study to see if they’re actually comparing apples to apples. I believe it was Mas Ayoob who said “I’ve rarely encountered somebody shot 20 times”, pointing out that once somebody gets to stabbing, they often do it a ton, and in contact ranges they aren’t missing much, and you can stab a LOT faster than you can shoot as a general rule.

Of course we all know if we let the anti-gunners win, they won’t leave us alone, they’ll just get even stupider when going after knives.
