Worst Mass Murder In U.S. History? Hardly.

The Jawa Report takes its readers down the memory hole

If you’ve been reading the papers and you have spotty knowledge of history, you might be forgiven for thinking that the shootings this week were the “worst mass murder in U.S. history.” If you’re a journalist with a lot on your plate, you may have forgotten the mass murder of September 11, 2001, which left over 3,000 dead. Then again, that was nearly six years ago & all.

[.....]

Truth is, the Virginia Tech shooting rampage, while tragic, was not “the worst mass murder in U.S. history.” It wasn’t the “second worst mass murder in U.S. history,” or even the third, or the fourth.

The 9/11 attacks (2,998 deaths), the Oklahoma City bombing (168 deaths), the HappyLand arson (87 deaths) and the Bath, Michigan bombing (45 deaths) all claimed more victims than the Virginia Tech shootings (32 deaths).

The Jawa Report also picks up on this post at the Plains Feeder asking the question, worst school killing?

The media is noting that the Virginia Tech massacre on Monday is the very worst school killing ever in America since Charles Whitman went nuts on the Texas Tower. The media bias against the Second Amendment shows clearly in this assertion. The fact is, the 1927 Bath, Michigan school killings had a death toll of 45 with 58 injured. So why doesn’t Andrew Kehoe, the Bath killer, get any mention? Kehoe didn’t use a firearm! He blew up the school with a bomb. No gun control mileage here. Into the wastebasket of history goes the Bath School tragedy. No useful purpose.

From what I’m told, 9/11 doesn’t count for one of two reasons. (1) Mass murder by our own Government doesn’t qualify (2) Even if a terror group from the middle east were involved, it doesn’t count because they had good reason to attack us.

Because they had no reason makes so it doesnt count. How does that make sense at all?
