US Is Not Highest in Mass Shootings. Liberals Take Note.
After a weekend of mass shootings, liberals like Kamala Harris are screaming for the government to “DO SOMETHING.” They all like to claim that the United States is the only place where this kind of thing occurs, so we need more gun control. However, they are wrong. The US is not highest and ranks near the bottom of a list of countries that have mass shootings.
When all countries are taken into consideration, the US comes in 66th. Taking into consideration European countries alone, the United States ranks 12th. For a country of such high population, we have a pretty low rate of mass shootings. Mass shootings by population in 2019 is on this graph:
US is not highest in mass shootings
The World Population Review states:
“There is a common misconception that the United States is one of the top few countries, if not the top country, that have the highest mass shooting rates. But the truth of the matter is that the United States is actually number sixty-six on the list of countries in terms of mass shooting rates.
That finding rings true when all countries around the world are taken into consideration. Looking at the United States alongside all the countries in Europe alone, the United States has the twelfth highest mass shooting rate. A few of the European countries with a higher mass shooting rate than the United States include Russia, Norway, France, Switzerland and Finland.
It certainly seems that the United States has the highest mass shootings rate of all the land, but this has been proven untrue. In recent years, the Crime Prevention Research Center released information regarding the annual death rates as a result of mass shootings around the world.
Tragedies such as the shootings in El Paso and Dayton only add fuel to the liberal emotional reactions against guns. Some Democrats are already using the tragedies to get campaign funds. Kamala Harris, in specific, is using the deaths and brokenness of others in a disgusting attempt to get campaign money. Oh, and remember, she plans to give Congress 100 days to pass gun legislation or she’ll do an Executive Order and take them (USA Today). Remember that, America. And remember the US NOT highest in mass shootings.
