Once again the NRAGOP tries to lie with numbers in defense of their indefensible  support of slaughtering school children and other innocents.

1. Brazil's homicide by gun rate is 20.85/100,000 and the US is 10.9/100,000, or 91% higher, NOT 448%.

2. Brazil is a developing country, much like the US 100 years ago and with a similar homicide rate to what we had 100 years ago.

3. Homicides in the EU are totally distorted by a single maniac who the NRAGOP would gladly re-arm should he immigrate to the States as a highly desirable Norwegean. Eliminate that single killer of 77 and the US figures for gun homicide are 300% of the EU.

 

The problem is not just guns, its the type and availability of guns. Not only does the NRAGOP support the slaughter of 15,000 Americans by homicide each year, they gleefully support another 15,000 dying by suicide that is made infinatily more certain when a gun is used. Converting existing semi-auto weapons so they can only fire once before manually operating the reload sequence and only fire 8 times before reloading will cut the homicide rate in half and make mass murder the very rare event it was BEFORE the NRAGOP flooded the streets with military weaponry in the name of higher profits for the Death Merchants.

Stop the slaughter - Stop the NRAGOP in November.


0. I am not the "NRAGOP."

 

1. I didn't say "homicide by gun rate" therefore, I didn't lie.  On the other hand, your "homicide by gun .. US is 10.9/100,000" is higher than the total homicide rate of "4.88/100,000"  from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate. 

 

2. Where did you get that nonsense?  The homocide rate in the USA is almost the same as it was 100 years ago.

That's not all. There were also 27% more casualties from 2009 to 2015 per mass shooting incident in the European Union than in the U.S.

"There were 16 cases where at least 15 people were killed," the study said. "Out of those cases, four were in the United States, two in Germany, France, and the United Kingdom."

Thanks KidBoy...some here will refuse to acknowledge that.  They spend so much time here insulting others that they don't pay attention to the news.

European countries has (sic) stricter gun laws than this country.  That is why the Second Amendment was made to the Constitution. Say what????

 

Even with their stricter gun laws they have more mass killings that (sic) the United States.   And they occur more frequently. Which country has more mass killings than the US?


 


Sorry about your continually being sick.  Perhaps your American History is as bad as wrong as your claim about majoring in Psychology.

 

Read the news about the terrrorists in the European Union.

That is true...I wonder if you know who
will say this link is false news?




Sorry, Despite Gun-Control Advocates' For Mass Shootings

https://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/sorry-despite-gun-control-advocates-claims-u-s-isnt-th...

Part of the link..

Powerful remarks, and no doubt heartfelt. But a study of global mass-shooting incidents from 2009 to 2015 by the Crime Prevention Research Center, headed by economist John Lott, shows the U.S. doesn't lead the world in mass shootings. In fact, it doesn't even make the top 10, when measured by death rate per million population from mass public shootings.

So who's tops? Surprisingly, Norway is, with an outlier mass shooting death rate of 1.888 per million (high no doubt because of the rifle assault by political extremist Anders Brevik that claimed 77 lives in 2011). No. 2 is Serbia, at just 0.381, followed by France at 0.347, Macedonia at 0.337, and Albania at 0.206. Slovakia, Finland, Belgium, and Czech Republic all follow. Then comes the U.S., at No. 11, with a death rate of 0.089.

That's not all. There were also 27% more casualties from 2009 to 2015 per mass shooting incident in the European Union than in the U.S.

"There were 16 cases where at least 15 people were killed," the study said. "Out of those cases, four were in the United States, two in Germany, France, and the United Kingdom."
