Embarrassing Conspiracy Theories: Acts of Mass Murder are False Flag Attacks

Any time an act of mass murder occurs in this country, or even in other countries, conspiracy theorists automatically claim that it’s a false flag attack. It doesn’t matter to them whether it’s an act of terrorism by an organized terrorist group, or an act of terrorism by some lone nut case, or just something that some lone nut case decided to do one day because they couldn’t control their violent urges.

The main “reasoning” behind all of this, besides that fact that many conspiracy theorists don’t believe that anyone would just randomly commit an act of mass murder, is the belief that these mass murders are staged in order to convince the public, or at least justify, that creating stricter gun control laws, and eventually outlawing firearms completely, is acceptable and reasonable.

The problem with this claim is that while some politicians often times do call for much more stricter gun control laws after a mass murder involving fire arms occurs, actual nation wide laws getting passed in this country regarding gun control is quite rare. In fact, the last major nation wide gun control law that was passed in this country was the Federal Assault Weapons Ban of 1994. Plus, in 2004 that law expired, and has never been renewed.
