A couple of small corrections. To the above.Thing is, we keep hearing about shootings in the USA, but that is a huge country which if there is to be any comparison, should not be matched against a small country like UK, but Somalia or the DRC to get a better perspective. Now that will probably still show the US as an outlier, but the comparison would be much closer.
Remember, America is a young country, many of its citizens have not yet developed to the extent that they can use a knife and fork AT THE SAME TIME.
making the connection between any nutter being able to get a non hunting weapon and their country’s spectacular rate of death by GSW is a big ask for them.
And that’s the normal sane citizens before you get to the slack jawed Cletuses , the like of which no doubt lapped up the poisonous lies spouted by the “ shock jock” Alex Jones.
Still a $49 million damages award by the jury should give pause for thought to the deny it’s happening brigade.
Finaly for clarity on numbers and nomalculture, when killing infants, what numbers are involved when it turns from “ a murder” to “ a tragedy” to
” a spree”.
and are we having a sweepstake on the date of the next “ spree”
