California Politician

Full of Bool Shite

According to the lefty Chicago Tribune.

This doesn’t happen anywhere else on the planet. We stand alone in the world in the number of mass shootings" said California’s Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom

Nope!

Why is he wrong?  Because:


Of the 97 countries where we identified mass public shootings, the U.S. ranks 64th per capita in its rate of attacks and 65th in fatalities. Major European countries, such as Norway, Finland, France, Switzerland and Russia, all have at least 25 percent higher per capita murder rates from mass public shootings.

Rich, there is a link right in the post. I'll be awful depressed if I find out just one of my readers doesn't explore every single link I provide.

I did look for a link, but was unable to find one. Maybe the linkage did not survive publication. Let not your heart be troubled, and thanks for the link.
