25 Logical Fallacies Politicians Use More Than You Realize


When Will Politicians Start Offering More Than Their 'Thoughts and Prayers'?

According to the Gun Violence Archive, Sunday night was the 273rd mass shooting in 2019. There have been 11,652 gun deaths on U.S. soil in 9 months. There have been 23,512 injuries. Most of these barely register as news. They are just the quiet drumbeat of human misery that make up the gun violence epidemic in America. But the scenes of horror out of Las Vegas, Nevada, Sunday night have attracted our momentary attention. In what appears to be the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history, a gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, in the heart of the Las Vegas strip, raining bullets on a crowd of country music concertgoers. In the space of a few minutes, more than 50 were dead and over 400 were injured. Some are still fighting for their lives in local hospitals.

Now might be the time to point out that the previous deadliest mass shooting in modern American history was last year, at Pulse nightclub in Orlando. In that case, Omar Mateen killed 49 people. American gun laws have not changed since, but close to 500 people were shot by one man on Sunday night. Once more, we must ask if this is really the country we've built for ourselves.
