In a shocking twist of events, the Washington Post publishes an article containing data, which shows that "Assault Rifles" account for only 25% of mass shootings. They also point out that during the duration of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, mass shootings actually went up.

If you want to have some fun, read the comments to the article, and watch the heads of Washington Post readers explode as they try to do a dangerous amount of mental gymnastics in order to explain why this doesn't matter.

Big props to Michael Rosenwald for having the guts to write the article.

Thank you for a well written article. I think both the confusion that many preppers experience when trying to convince others of the benefits of prepping, as well as the answer to why so many people are seemingly opposed to prepping is contained in one of the first paragraphs: "For anyone who has had an interest in being prepared for any time at all, it can be difficult to think of any logical reason that someone would be opposed to having a BASIC level of preparedness." (emphasis added)

The average person is not opposed to a BASIC level of preparedness. They are opposed to theories about how social collapse is just around the corner. Most people do not believe in such theories, and therefore rightfully have no interest in preparing for them. You can not get a person to prepare for a nuclear war if they do not believe one is coming. However, I have found that the average person has absolutely no problem preparing for events that they believe are likely to occur such as storms, power outages, etc.

Maybe the extra smoke is from people's reputations going up in flames.
