    31% of mass shootings...

    The USA accounts for 31 per cent of mass shootings worldwide, despite having only five per cent of the world’s population.

    Interesting...

    About 20% of the world's population is so poor they couldn't afford to buy a gun. The Australians have given their guns away to politicians pandering to leftists. What's your point?

    Your point, based on what you've written above is that less Guns = less mass shootings...interesting.

    1996 in Australia there was a Gun amnesty on 'illegal' firearms, NOT legal firearms and Gun laws were tightened after several mass shootings between 1984–1996. 1996 being the Port Arthur massacre where 35 were shot dead. That prompted the then 'Right' winged Govt to tighten the gun laws and bring into effect the amnesty.

    I have to agree with, Ted.

    Facts without a proper narrative are just free ranging horses, or wild dandelions, or waterfalls ... as you said, interesting ... and certainly helps defeat the boredom.

    There's a guy I remember reading about (in the Guinness BoWR, I think) who grew his fingernails to such an extent that he could no longer partake in the simple joy of picking his nose ... so he had to have others do it for him so that fundamental diatomic and triatomic gases could resume doing their thing.

    In any event, facts are pretty useless without a narrative, so I thought I'd bring my own.

    The USA accounts for 31 per cent of mass shootings worldwide, despite having only five per cent of the world’s population.
    What percentage of that 31% has been committed by the state to facilitate construction of the state security apparatus? IOW, how much of that 31% is genuine/random/unexpected ... and how much is false (flag)?

    And if very little of the "mass shootings" event narrative is genuine - and the evidence bears this out - then how does this impact the greater implied discussion of gun rights and gun control?

    Port Arthur is a provable proven false flag. Mass shootings rarely happen as they are being portrayed and entered into the historical record. Kill rates often expose such events as government staged psyops.

    300 million guns in circulation in the USA is absurd. Period.

    Your wording is silly. Provable proven false flag? ok, while a 'possible' false flag, nothing has ever been proven, in any way shape or form.

    Granted some for sure, but be sure some are just as they appear.

    Zook and Ted, the OP speaks for itself...interesting statistic, and as I mentioned in follow up post, 300 million guns, it's no surprise...is it.

    Ok, let's take this to it's logical conclusion.

    The United States has about 253 million registered cars and trucks (http://www.latimes.com/business/auto...609-story.html). There are approximately 32,000 car fatalities each year (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...n_U.S._by_year).

    Out of approximately 300 million guns owned in the US, there are around 17,000 deaths per year (http://www.gunviolencearchive.org).

    What does that say to a logical minded person about cars and guns? Interesting... hmm...
