Unfortunately, the NRA report is being hammered by media outlets -- some left-leaning, others not -- about faulty or misleading data the report's authors attempt to pass off as truth.
Mother Jones, for instance, documents several instances where the NRA report claims armed persons in schools were directly responsible for thwarting attacks from would-be shooters or greatly limited the loss of life. The most egregious example is of a 16-year-old who reportedly killed six at a school in Minnesota. But the facts of the case show that event never happened in the manner expressed in the NRA report.
Considering the importance of this American topic -- gun control -- it's smart to read up on the NRA report and the coverage it is receiving.
Likewise, it's just as important that Americans receive reputable, facts-driven information about school shootings and its many aspects. Decisions influenced by falsehoods aren't worth making.
