For the past decade, socialist Democrats have tried to claim that mass shootings are a American phenomenon as part of their argument to push for more gun control and/or the disarming of the American people.
They point to other countries that have more gun control or gun bans and say that they don’t have mass shootings.
Yet, earlier this week a man opened fire on a cathedral in southern Brazil, killing four and wounding four others, before being shot by police and then taking his own life.
In France, a radicalized Muslim opened fire on a crowded at a busy Christmas market in Strasbourg.
Yelling Islamic sayings, the shooter killed 10 people and wounded three others before escaping in a taxi.
Fox News – Strasbourg shooting suspect, ID’d as extremist, still at large; 5 others arrested – Before he opened fire on a crowded Christmas market in Strasbourg, France on Tuesday, 29-year-old Cherif Chekatt yelled “Allahu Akbar,” Paris’ public prosecutor said Wednesday — the first official statement pegging the deadly shooting as an Islamic terror attack.
Though no groups have claimed responsibility for the attack, Islamic terrorists have a history of plotting assaults at Christmas markets — including one disrupted plot in which nearly a dozen militants sought to bomb the Strasbourg market around the millennium.
Chekatt escaped from the scene in a taxi, bizarrely bragging to the driver about being injured in a firefight with soldiers after killing 10 people, officials said. Police said three people were killed in the attack…
One country anti-gun liberals point to is Australia who banned private ownership of most guns several decades ago, but they has a mass shooting earlier this year that left 3 adults and 4 kids dead.
Two years ago, a man in Japan, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the world, went on a rampage, stabbing as many people as possible, an attack that left 15 dead and 45 injured.
Great Britain also has a strict gun control laws and in recent years has seen an increase in gun violence, causing many to push to get their guns back, including many policemen.
No, gun violence, mass shootings or mass violence is not unique to America, but a symptom of a growing cultural crisis sweeping across the world, thanks to liberals.
