August 27, 2015 – United States Of America Has The Highest Rate Of Mass Shootings & Gun Ownerships In The World

America has the highest rate of mass shootings in the world because of the ‘dark side of exceptionalism’, a study has claimed.

University of Alabama criminologist Adam Lankford discovered The United States has experienced five times the number of mass shootings in the last 50 years than any other country – and says the ‘cultural propensity for violence’ is to blame.

There were 291 documented mass shootings in the world between 1966 and 2012, with 90 (31 per cent) occurring in the United States.

The Philippines, with 18 mass shootings between 1966 and 2012, was second, followed by Russia (15), Yemen (11), and France (10).
Lankford outlined several factors that he believes have caused this, including:

• America’s high rate of gun ownership

• The idolization of fame among U.S. mass shooters

• And what Lankford calls the ‘the dark side of American exceptionalism’

Lankford also believes the failure of the US health care system to treat mental illness is partly to blame, but is not a entirely a factor in itself.

    When you compare America with other G7 countries (industrialized), America will always come last on morality. If you look at current political situation, what you will see is the product of a damned wicked system or biblical way of saying it is the consequences of sins. These bad things in the world today should reinforce our belief in GOD; menfolk have failed. Americans love to pretend and not inherently care about higher power, Politicians are taking orders from their father; devil. This is the only country that you will see politicians saying gun doesn’t; but people.

    Ritual killings in Africa are economic crimes while America’s killings are just animalistic urge that is enhance by foolish gun law. There is no primary school student that will bring AK-47 to school in Nigeria, when that happens, massive arrest will follow ,but in America they will engage in fertile literature of gun ownership.

    And the point of this is supposed to be what? Mass shootings happen because of the amount of guns in the world? That’s retarded.

    You could put all the guns in the world into a room full of monks, and not 1 gun would ever shoot or kill anyone. You could eliminated every gun in the world tomorrow, and it still wouldn’t stop people from killing each other.

    Did Christians use guns during the crusades, when they declared Holy War and committed the biggest mass murder in the history of the world?

    People can kill 10x more with cars than guns. So are cars next? What happens when everyone is stabbed? Eliminate metal? And then when they just start choking everybody? Eliminate hands!? lol

    Seriously… someone must be eliminating brains.
