What do you think the people that started this whole thread is trying to project?
“Aussies are smarter than Americans because they don’t have an obsession with an inanimate object.”
“Aussie schools are safe because of the superior intelligence of the Aussies in controlling problems.”
When you point out that the reason for the lack of incidents is shear statistical probability. They don’t have a high enough population to have a
chance to rack up any number of incidents.
And based on larger sample base, they are running about statistically even, or even ahead of the US in “rampage” killings in general.
Their response to evidence showing that their little feel good thread has no connection to reality. Their response is predictable.
“That's a load of crap.”
They don’t want to admit that the feel good measures they passed, were just that. Feel good measures that have no effect on stopping another one.
Blaming an inanimate object gave them an easy out. They don’t want to have to com to grips with the fact they are just fooling themselves.
So, the response to the next Aussie massacre will be predictable. “License and background checks to by gasoline.” “Waiting period for owning a
harvester.” Or such stuff like that.
It is sad to see people suffering from self induced delusion.
