No Surprise, Everytown for Gun Safety School Shooting Map Overstates Incidents

Michael Bloomberg's gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety has created a map that claims that there have been 74 “shootings at schools” since the Newtown, Connecticut school shootings. Investigative journalist Charles Johnson has examined the 74 incidents in detail, and found that some incidents did not take place on campuses, fewer than 7 were mass shootings, one was a case of self-defense, and one probably did not happen.  Not surprising, the map and related media reports have been widely circulated  by the usual gun ban proponents in Hollywood and the media, and even in the news clips of a bureau of the U.S. Department of Justice.   

Also not surprisingly, the numbers are wrong.  Johnson spoke with Cam Edwards on NRANews' Cam and Company yesterday about his finding.
