Mass Murder by Country
List of mass murders by country to give an idea that different countries have different problems: but gun control does not cure problems. Heck, if it was to end school shootings, but end up with an insurgency, that's not a net win for stability. Just like going from guns to bombs, trucks into crowds and train derailments, would be worse.
Here's a list of a few places we don't want to model ourselves after: 5 items
|France: Mass Murders - In strict gun-controlled France, they still us AK-47's and other illegal guns, but worse, they're more likely to use trucks driving into crowds or bombs (in planes or crowded places). Their death rates are worse than the U.S.
|German: Mass Murders - In strict gun-controlled Germany, many have used illegal guns, trucks driving into crowds or bombs (in planes or crowded places).
|India: Mass Murders - In strict gun-controlled India, they still us AK-47's and other illegal guns, but worse, they're more likely to use bombs and coordinated attacks, or even sabotage (train derailments). That and slow Police response times (due to infrastructure and traffic problems) results in much higher death rates than in many other countries:
There are about 900 attacks per year that result in ≈500 deaths per year average, or 10-100 times the U.S. Even adjusted for population, it's a way bigger problem, despite gun control.
|Other Countries: Mass Murders - This is sort of a catch all for other countries that had high mass murders or terrorist events. Some might argue that's because these events are rare, but they're less rare when you correct for population -- I'm just calling out a few notable examples. Sometimes among many.
|Russia: Mass Murders - In strict gun-controlled and police-state Russia, they have semi-regular incidents of terrorism and mass murder (and their murder rate floats from 10x the U.S., to just a little higher). A lot of the problems are rebels and organized crime, but the point is gun control doesn't cure societal problems.
