The USA (as a country) is ranked 1st in the world as far as the percentage of citizens that own firearms.
You will see that stat a lot. (especially right now)
What you ARE NOT TOLD, is that the USA is ranked 28th
in the world as far as crimes committed with those firearms.
All due respect to those and their families who have been affected by "gun crime" but the fact is that the US is nowhere near as "dangerous" as it is
being depicted as...
Another thing the US is probably very close to "#1" at is the strength and influence of their media.
Take all that in, mix it together, and it's no surprise there is so much "outrage" being propagated about events over the last few years. It's no
It could very well be a ploy to garner sympathetic support from as many people as possible so when the SH#t hits the fan, the public is more divided
than it would be otherwise.
Considering the (seemingly) rapidly escalating occurrence of these crimes, and ramped up media coverage afterwards... you have to wonder how far away
that breaking point really is.
