Debunking the 'U.S. most mass shootings in world' myth

Above is the article, then the actual research referenced. Good stuff.

Remember to emphasize to others that the 'gun violence' issue is NOT a 'balance between the safety of our streets versus the convenience of sportsmen'.

The optimum low-gun-violence condition is the SAME one as the 'convenience for sportsmen' one - HIGH gun ownership rates - no 'tradeoff' needed.

"first do no harm" - gun control LAWS lead to far more deaths than 'easy access' ever could.

IIRC, if you take out the top five cities for murders in the US (all, BTW, run by Democrats and have been for decades), the US drops to the bottom 10 of murders per capita among all the countries of the world.

Thanks. I was trying to remember where that paper was.

this is good to keep handy...

as I see the "issue"

compared to how many people die EVERY DAY from medical errors, and
compared to how many people die EVERY DAY in car accidents, and
compared to how many people die EVERY DAY from violent criminals, and
compared to how many people die EVERY DAY by killing themselves, and
compared to how many people die EVERY DAY from political policies,

the number who die in mass shootings is incredibly small

the remedy is to ARM UP and SHOOT BACK in SELF DEFENSE
since it is not the business of law enforcement to prevent crime
