Almost inevitably after a mass shooting, like the recent ones in Colorado or San Bernardino, some conspiracy theorist will say that the shooting was a false flag designed to distract the public from some hidden agenda. Usually the tin foil hat crowd says that these shootings are being used in order for the government to confiscate firearms from gun owners. Well two can play at that game.
Something else that’s almost inevitable after a mass shooting is that there is usually a spike in the number of firearms being purchased. They’re usually purchased by those who think that this will finally be the time where the government tries to take our guns. What if instead it was a false flag being carried out by the firearms industry designed to increase their profit?
Sounds ridiculous right? It should, just like every other conspiracy theory.
