Is The FBI Fudging Gun Violence Stats?


As defenders of the Second Amendment, we’ve grown accustomed to watching anti-gun groups, liberals, and media personalities distort the facts to suit their agenda. According to the president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, however, we are now witnessing a new kind of distortion. This one, claims John Lott, is coming straight from the FBI.

“The FBI put out a clearly incorrect set of numbers on public shootings shortly before the November elections last year,” said Lott in an interview with Fox News. “I have been reading FBI reports for 30 years and I have never seen anything like this.”

The report in question was released last September. In it, the FBI demonstrated that “mass shooter” incidents had skyrocketed between 2000 and 2013. According to their numbers, there was only one such attack in the year 2000 but a startling 17 such attacks in 2013. Overall, according to their statistics, there were 160 mass shootings in the United States over the period in question.

But Lott insists that these numbers cannot be trusted. According to him, the FBI took their data from news reports, thus automatically weighting figures towards the most recent years. They also included “active shooter” incidents, which made it appear that there were more mass shootings towards the latter end of the range. If they had accounted for these discrepancies, Lott says, they would have found that mass shootings had actually been reduced by half.

Manipulating the Facts

Between shaky raw data and a media all-too-willing to shape statistics to make an anti-gun argument, liberals have successfully stacked the deck against pro-freedom Americans. Yet polls continue to show that Americans believe in the right to bear arms. There are, of course, disagreements when it comes to how liberally those rights should be applied, but that’s to be expected. Few Americans think children should be able to bring AK47s to school; few think we should ban guns altogether.

Unfortunately, our discourse is forced to the extremes by these lies. We are led to believe that our nation is in a permanent state of crisis, the next Sandy Hook always looming around the corner. The only way to prevent it, they say, is to pass stricter laws. When you look at the studies, though, you see that the opposite is true. As more states adopt right-to-carry laws, we see violent crime sink like a stone. There may or may not be a strict correlation there, but one thing is certain: Americans with gun permits are not the problem.

Unless we magically snap our fingers and make every gun in the world disappear into thin air, strict gun laws will always favor the criminal. By making it harder for law-abiding Americans to protect themselves, we make it easier for outlaws to rule the roost. And that’s exactly what liberals want. They want us afraid, powerless, and desperate for intervention. They want us to turn to the government – not the local gun store – for protection.

And they’re apparently willing to sink to any level necessary to achieve that goal.

  1. HankBar says

    When we get a real president, they will have to deal with and purge not only the FBI, but EPA, IRS and all the other pseudo Govt czars set up to push liberal agendas

    1. Ron says

      I hope that a “real” president will also terminate the use of that stupid, Imperial Russian term “Czar.” That IS NOT an American job title!

      1. elmcqueen3 says

        American job title…”Czar”… Which would be befitting if you are a communist…”Da… Commorade”.

      2. Terry Rushing says

        The first time I heard that term from this administration it had the strong odor of excrement and the stench remains to this day. Sounds like more of the little despot’s “change” policy.

      3. born free says

        And the “homeland” is not an area within the USA but it was an area policed by the gestapo.

        But the term justifies the TASS, the official propaganda arm of the soviet us gubbermunt.

        This traitor in chief is a Czar, Russia don’t have the corner of the market on it.

            Oh me too!!!! I think anyone with a functional brain is praying for it…and I hope he takes his traitorous regime to prison with him too!!!

      2. EES says


        1. Tasine says

          Broke THEN, perhaps. Multimillionaires now. Politics EXIST for the lawyers who don’t know law to become wealthy via graft, extortion, graft, embezzlement, theft, blackmail, ……oh, and “speaking engagements”. There is no other REAL reason for governments than what I have just stated.

      3. CrustyOldGeezer says

        Including boehnor and the cretin in the senate that are working tirelessly to ensure he does not face Impeachment.

        There is more than enough evidence to convict.

        And the trial in the senate would prove to the people who deserves another term in congress or PRISON.

    3. born free says

      With over 500 federal depts and sub depts there is a huge amount of clean up to do.
      What makes it worse is the fed admits to not knowing exactly how many depts and programs it actually runs.

      1. HankBar says

        Politicians only keep up with the depts and sub-depts that they can realize a gain from. Be it financial or political power.They have no idea how many more there are, and do not care.

      Yes, virtually, the entire top echelon of this administration will get to see a Grand Jury, they are about to be reminded that the USA told the world, from Nuremburg Germany in 1946, “following orders is not an acceptable excuse for breaking the law.

          1. Sherry says

            Probably NOT until they ALL go before God’s “GRAND JURY” Judgement! THEN, they will have HELL TO PAY! NONE of them will slip by with any excuses….God knows how deep the corruption goes….and He WILL judge them ALL accordingly! I sure wouldn’t want to be around to see what happens to them all!

    7. LadyGreenEyes says

      That’s assuming we have another actual election.

      1. Tasine says

        Which I do NOT expect. I expect lil Barry to declare himself ruler and refuse to vacate the Oval Office. Why should he leave when he knows he can stay without getting a hand slapped? He has gotten away with things just as bad and paid NO PRICE for any of his screwups and violations of the US Constitution. I can’t picture an obscenely narcissistic creature leaving all the perks and power when he knows he can stay for the rest of his life if he chooses to….on OUR DIMES.

        1. LadyGreenEyes says

          A lot of people have believed the same thing, since before the results in 2008. If he does leave, I suspect it would only be for a higher position in the UN or something. I am 99.99% sure there are far bigger plans in play.

          1. Tasine says

            I suspect you are right…….IF he leaves it will be for greener pastures. I’ve wondered all along if he is a UN selected US President – or a Middle East US President

          2. LadyGreenEyes says

            Definitely selected, and not by the American people!

      a Socialist, a Secularist…a Unionist…an Envioronmentalist…an Atheist…an Aborionist…an Anarchist…Gays…La Razz (NCLR) and their representatives who support undocumented aliens (illegas)…the NAACP…the Black Panthers…the Black Muslims..the Islamist…the Brady anti-gunners and other do-gooder anti-gun organizations..the 99%ers…the Druggies…the many George Soros foundations…the Marxist…the Communist…the Mafia and it’s affiliations…and more…of which the majority all vote the Democratic Party line…They thrive and support each other in their goal to bring this country to her knees…Lady Liberty is sobbing but few care if she be in tears.

      1. HankBar says

        It is because there is no one pushing for the law to be enforced. Too many RINOs, and too many Law enforcement agencies especially Federal law enforcement entities that are unwilling to take on the challenge. The communist party has had candidates run for office for many many years. It is not against the law.

    Sandy Hook is a huge lie, a government created production using what was supposed to be a FEMA exercise in an abandoned school to create another fabricated excuse to destroy our Second Amendment Rights. Listed to Wolfgang Habig on the 1/10/14 Caravan to Midnight web site.
    I find the use of words such as fudging, distorting, confused, misspeak, etc., etc. to be offensive. Why not tell the TRUTH and say that the government lied again? Our government has been lying to us for decades and has no intension of telling the truth. There agenda of enslaving us is their goal and lying about everything is just their M.O.

        Whether the FBI, ATF, EPA, CIA, BLM, IRS, FEMA etc. Odumba has used these area’s of Government(and still is) to get his way. If that doesn’t work, Odumba uses his mystical executive power. The American Patriots,(thats you me & anyone else that knows this is wrong) have had they’re bellies full of this traitor, along with the Clintons, Reids, Holders, Feinsteins, Sharpton, Soros, and anyone else that craps on OUR Constitution/Bill of Rights. Its time America wakes up & refuses to be put down, especially by our Muslim in Office who says were no better than anyone else. He & his mafia pals can kiss my A**.

  10. ussacitizen says

    It is very odd the FBI would change from actual police department reported statistics to using “news data”. Prior to my retirement I used to supply our monthly crime statistics to the FBI for use in the yearly UCR (Uniform Crime Report). We would compare our cities stats to the national and state averages to report to council and the citizens each year. If the FBI stops using real statistics the is no usable data for anyone.

    1. Florio Vino says

      This is being done purposely to cover up the facts that Black on White Crime has increased, nearly 30% during the Obama administration came on. The answer “Get even with Whitey” for all the so-called Ills , that have been committed , when slavery began in this Country! They do not take into consideration that their Chiefs and Leaders (All Black) sold their people into slavers from Spain, Portugal, Arabia, etc., that were the ones that brought them here as well as European Countries sold them also! When they were released after the Civil War, many stayed on plantations and continued working and were compensated for their labors. Others were released and headed West North where they found jobs and established themselves as most Whitey`s are prone to do.. They contributed and still do, however as it has happened amongst the White population , the crap often floats to the top, just like it has in the Democratic party and the crap has assumed Leaerdship. Now we learn that Durbin and Schumer are in line to assume Harry Reid`s leadership of that party .” WOW! What a surprise. !

  11. Jerry Cox says

    Sure they are. Who is going to correct them? The media is on there sides and will not correct them but rather support them through more rhetoric. The left liberal gets the media and a chance to spin the lies and deceptions. The FBI is in the tank for the left currently and aren’t most of the agencies the same. .

  15. Ray Looker says

    The FBI serves the ‘king’. They have always been liars because the people will believe anything they say, even when it is a blatant lie. As long as the people do nothing they will always lie and advance the political agenda of the ‘king obama’.

  16. Vernon Cunningham says

    again the tool is blamed. There are many tools that cause the death of people. What is a bomb but a tool. It is used to kill hundreds. Look at the statistics for mentally flawed people. How many nuts as opposed to sane people kill multiple victims? What means do they use? How many people are killed by ball bats, lamp cords, screw drivers, knives? How many tools must be outlawed until no one is ever killed? next remove hands because many death are caused by strangulation. And having a psyche evaluation will not always determine who will kill with a gun. We stand by the 2nd amendment that allows us unrestricted ownership of weapons. And this right is to contain government so we don’t have a king.

      Sorry Fred Underwood actually the FBI is part of Holder’s DOJ not controlled directly by Obama…..

  19. ttoe says

    I’ve noticed a huge uptick in the number of incidents since Obama became president, but maybe it’s because liberal news is just focusing on it a lot more in order to give Democrats more help for gun-ban, gun-ban-treaties, and gun-regulations.

    “Cooking the books” to procure desired numbers is nothing new to the Federal Government. The highly political oriented CDC has been book cooking for years, coming out with such outlandish comments that says their figures show that more people die from firearms than from auto accidents in the US.

    Written by a USMC Vet. (I can’t argue

    with any of it. Passing it along as it was received.)
    The American Dream ended (on November 6th, 2012)
    in Ohio . The second term of Barack Obama will be the final nail
    in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who
    discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest
    Republic in the history of mankind.
    A coalition of Blacks,
    Latinos, Feminists, Gays, Government Workers, Union Members,
    Environmental Extremists, The Media, Hollywood , uninformed young
    people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens
    and other “fellow travelers” have ended Norman Rockwell’s America
    . The Cocker Spaniel is off the front porch… The Pit Bull is in the
    back yard. The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul
    Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and Chicago shyster, David Axelrod,
    along with international Socialist George Soros will be pulling the
    strings on their beige puppet to bring us Act 2 of the New World Order.

    Our side ran two candidates who couldn’t even win their own
    home states, and Chris Christie helped Obama over the top with a glowing
    “post Sandy ” tribute that elevated the “Commander-in-Chief” to
    Mother Teresa status. (Aside: with the way the polls were run, he didn’t
    need any help!) People like me are completely politically irrelevant,
    and I will never again comment on or concern myself with the
    aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage
    and our traditions without a shot being fired.
    You will never
    again out-vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance
    and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we
    have allowed them to take away. It will take Zealots, not moderates
    & shy not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and
    restore our beloved country to its former status.
    Those who
    come after us will have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their
    sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly
    frittered away due to “white guilt” and political correctness… An
    American Veteran……… Semper-Fi
    Got the guts to pass it
    on? You betcha!!!!!

    This is nothing new, everytime we have a Liberal in the White House we get the FBI (US Attorney General) fudging the numbers in the FBI Crime reports in order to serve the interest (Disarming the Law Abiding) of the Liberal White House Administration and those in Congress.

  25. steven says

    Everyone else in the government is a liar, why not the FBI?

  26. Obie Miller says

    The term “gun violence” is improper in itself. The guns, themselves, are not being violent— the law breaking people who are using them are those to whom the term “violent” is referring. Properly said, the term used should be “violent people using guns”. The mainstream media is only saying “gun violence” as gun control propaganda.

  27. barbarakelly says

    The FBI is working with obama bimbo for sure. He’ll have them say anything to get his way.

  28. luvzforplay says

    Where have you been the Government stacks the deck in anything they want to try to push through , problem is that is getting to be their “tell” and most of us older guys know what’s coming !!

  29. dondehoff says

    Mass shootings: I maintain an investigation will ,”for most”, reveal a “common thread”. It might be a common psychological issue, medication served to the offenders, (or combinations thereof), threats or “encouragement” of already sick individuals, by parties unknown, or mass “brainwashing” of already sick people. Also, don’t be mislead by reports, of gun related incidents, as even the most benign gun issues in remote locations now get reported nationwide. A look at the overall FBI reports reflect that that the has been a general lowering of such issues in the last few years—-just ask Google. .

    1. CrustyOldGeezer says

      Common thread that connects ALL of the mass shooters to date is ‘politically left leaning’ of the individuals that pulled the trigger.

      1. dondehoff says

        Crusty, that thread is there but most of those shooters were too young to be deeply involved in political issues. There has to be other “triggers” (common threads) that prompted them to act. “COG”, how “young are you? In about a week I will be 83 and wish I were 50 again so I could run for office.

        1. CrustyOldGeezer says

          Mommies and daddies allow their children to watch TV and play violent video games without supervision, or making sure their little bedwetters know there is a difference between video games and the Real World.

          And to answer your question, I enlisted in the Navy in 1964. Am I old enough to have an opinion?

          I wish I had run for office when I got out of the Military.

          1. MyronJPoltroonian says

            06/’59-06/’62 for me. (Yes, I voluntarily joined and didn’t wait for the draft.) As to “Wishing” I’d run for office, I’m glad in a way I didn’t, as I took up the guitar and, 2½ years later, I started doing it for a living [right place, right time] and did so for over two decades after that. That experience gave me a unique insight and entree into the Liberal Mind that few who post on sites like this have ever had. Those friends and fellow musicians from that era who are still living and are on “FaceTube” as one of them calls it, have a harder time dismissing my conservatism since they know me so well. Sometimes, that edge is what helps drive home the point that “Facts [actually do] Matter” and not the flip “That’s Your Truth”, response one so often hears from them. Since some of them are fairly well known musicians, ever today, it does help spread the truth a little further than just coming to sites like this and preaching to the choir and [figuratively] “Burning [trolling] Heretic’s At The Stake”, so to speak.

        2. MyronJPoltroonian says

          LOL! The way I put it is: “They used to call me ‘Young and Foolish’. They just don’t call me ‘Young’ anymore.” (I’m exactly, to the month, day and year, the same age as Robert Zimmerman, a.k.a. “Bob Dylan”.)

  30. CrustyOldGeezer says

    And DHS announces that they have released 30,000 (THIRTY THOUSAND) illegal alien criminals back onto the Streets of America.
    Only God knows how many convicted violent criminals are turned out daily by judges that feel bad the prisons are crowded.

    And “those” have no effect on the number of violent crimes in America on any given day, gun related or not.

    We don’t need laws that control ‘guns’.

    We need laws that provide HARSH ACCOUNTABILITY for corrupt judges, bureaucrats and politicians.

    A violent criminal gets released BEFORE they are sufficiently PUNISHED for their crimes, not only does the criminal go back to prison, but ALL of the government employees that allowed the violent criminal to go free get to go to prison for no less than double the mandatory prison terms for the violent crime committed.

    THE we will have SAFE STREETS in America.

  31. Peter Castle says

    They clearly have an agenda and it’s not in favor of the American people.

    See “Let’s Stop the Insanity Over Gun Violence” at

  32. Peter Castle says

    Don’t forget, the feds have redefined terrorism as something Christians and conservatives engage in.

    1. MyronJPoltroonian says

      LOL! Which brand of religionist’s do you think they’ll deny pilot license’s to first? (Trick question. There’s only one, and it won’t be the “Misunderstander’s” of Islam.)

  33. J_R_K says

    “We are led to believe that our nation is in a permanent state of crisis, the next Sandy Hook always looming around the corner. The only way to prevent it, they say, is to pass stricter laws.”

    What, there weren’t any existing gun laws violated at Sandy Hook? How effective were those laws? How effective is any law when it is blatantly violated? (Including the United States Constitution). It may seem like a cliche, but the truth is, and always will be that when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. The democrats who can’t see this just kind of have to have their heads buried in the dirt not to see that it’s true…. but then, I submit that they do see that it is true, but they don’t care. Their goal is not to stop mass shootings. Their goal is to disarm Americans. Liberals are about one thing and one thing only: creating a tyrannical government that cannot be contested.

    That’s as obvious as the teleprompter in front of Barack Obama.

    1. MyronJPoltroonian says

      LOL! It’s not the good, clean earth they have their heads buried in. As I always say: “At least an ostrich has enough sense to bury its head in the sand and not some other dark, smelly place.”

      1. J_R_K says

        That’s crude, vulgar, disgusting… and it made me laugh :o)

        1. MyronJPoltroonian says

          LOL! In the words of “The King” [or, “Ennis the Penis”, as we used to call him]: “Thank you. Thank you very much”.

  34. David says

    Hankbar you hit the nail on the head…..shut’um down………..

  35. scott says

    we have the most corrupt govt system in hystory and these imbeciles are still wondering if these scumbags are lieing.

  36. Pulcherrim says

    I always get a kick out of headlines with question marks, like the author is not really just making things up to pander to the fears of the terminally terrified.

    1. MyronJPoltroonian says

      “Pulcher-Hemaramaroid”, it may have escaped your squinty-brained perception, but, as a dear friend has noted: “Paranoia is what they call ‘Perceptivity’, before you’re proven right.”

  37. Alleged Comment says

    This proves the negro has gotten his tentacles in every bureau of government. Sending Moslems (liars also), leftist, sodomites, feminist, communist, and other Negroes into these bureaus.

    He has had 6 years to put in his radicals. Now NOTHING can be trusted to come out of this government. Beginning to sound like Russia.

  38. Jim Norris says

    What do any of you folks think we could expect from the United States Government but lies and distortions of the truth and manufacturing of truths… Your current Government is EVIL and filled with crooks and liars if not worst.

  39. MAHB001 says

    Since the 0liar has taken office. What part of the Government hasn’t lied?

  40. LadyGreenEyes says

    Of course they are. History has proven that the first step in the rise of a government hostile to its own people is to take away all means of self defense. First the guns go, then the people start “vanishing”, Shame a lot of foolish people can’t learn from history!

  41. George Cahonna says

    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will
    within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.
    I do not add “within the limits of the law”
    because law is often but the tyrant’s will,
    and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.
    – Thomas Jefferson

  42. Dexter L. Wilson says

    This president has manipulated the temperature figures at NOAA and NASA has been doing the same. When this president if they are not manipulating figures I don’t know it.

  43. adrianvance says

    We cannot trust any figures from the Obama Administration. We have 92 million people not working out of a potential workforce of 180 million after prisoners, college students and mothers of children under 12 are taken out. I get 51.4% unemployed, twice that of the Great Depression, but Mr. Obama says the unemployment rate if 5.75%.

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for clarity.

  44. Tasine says

    I would love to see every department, every agency, every office in the federal government de-funded, reduced in size or closed down. Most of them are worthless wastes of money that is getting more and more scarce, THANKS TO GOVERNment rules and regs. Our government needs a “do-over” assuming that not all would go along with me when I say that it needs to be abandoned altogether and allow the people here to actually live FREE, for a novel change.
