Wow, this stands in contrast to what many who would like to disarm Americans would have you believe. We are shocked that the old media hasn’t been upfront about the reality of shootings worldwide. It’s almost as if the media has an agenda driven by people who live in urban centers who know absolutely nothing about guns or something. It’s almost as if the media is driven by people who have an irrational fear of people they don’t like. But, no that couldn’t be it. We’re sure it was just a 30 year oversight.
Now why would these people want the American people disarmed? Hmmm. Now why did Hitler institute gun control? Hmmm. And why did the Founders enshrine the Right to Bear Arms? Why? We just can’t imagine.
(From The New York Post)
Of the 86 countries where we have identified mass public shootings, the US ranks 56th per capita in its rate of attacks and 61st in mass public shooting murder rate. Norway, Finland, Switzerland and Russia all have at least 45 percent higher rates of murder from mass public shootings than the United States.
People will have a hard time coming to terms with this data. (We’ve discussed it before.)
