US has about 1/4 the numbers of murders compared to Brazil and has about 50% more people than Brazil.

Yes America is slightly less violent than the third world.

But not in terms of mass shootings.

Mass shootings are kind of specific to America

In Sao Paulo, the police kill poor street urchins just to keep their numbers down. Even American cops haven't stopped that low.




... yet.

Police shoot 1000 or so a year in America. Although some are presumably criminals

They shot 1000 but only killed less than 400? They clearly need more target practice. Their aim is currently so bad, we should consider de-arming
them

Not surprising though. There seems to be more and more of you nutters every day

That is the 19th mass shooting in New Zealand.

That's over its entire history since the 1700's.

There's been over 60 of them in America?

This year?

Does this illustrate the problem America has?

Interesting remarks from the Australian Prime Minister who seems to be avoiding the fact that one one shooter they have is Australian.

While stressing that there is no evidence of a coordinated effort or heightened threat to Australian mosques or muslims, they have stepped up police presence throughout Australia.

Seems prudent.

I see the biggest "nutter" on the forum making reference to other "nutters". How hypocritical can one get?

How has the strict gun registration and confiscation worked out for them?

Is mass murder restricted to only a few countries or ethnic/religious groups or is it a phenomenon rampant among the human race?

It's present in many cultures but it's rampant in America

It's about to get a whole lot stricter.

It's hard to keep American gun terrorism from spreading around the planet as long as it is not studied and tracked as a terrorist threat that is right up there with the radical Jihadists. This guy wasn't on their radar because, I guess, he is White.

His firearms freedom manifesto, apart from the idiotic way that he tries to convince the world that it is done how a good idea by opening fire on un-armed dozens, will now be seen as a big red flag for security forces to surveil loony-tunes like him. There are people on this forum who may now be tracked as potential terrorists for their extreme right wing views and their irrational need for lots and lots of guns.

CSIS, start watching some of these maniacs on here. They are a threat to our peace and order.

These people are the audience for the nutcases out there shooting people up.

They are the people who are following and sharing and enjoying the hell out of it.
