VIA| Obama just said this after the SC Shooting:
“But let’s be clear: At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries. It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency.”
Is what he said true? Let’s check!
The U.S.’ index of 0.12 per 5,000,000 places it behind Norway, Finland, Slovakia, Israel, and Switzerland – at half the ratio.
The top 5 countries for mass shootings per capita all have “restrictive” gun policies.
