    Democrats Say America Is The Worst Western Country For Mass Shootings. That's A Lie.

    Here’s the list of the 18 countries with the top death rate per million people from mass public shootings from 2009 through 2015:
    1. Norway: 1.888
    2. Serbia: 0.381
    3. France: 0.347
    4. Macedonia: 0.337
    5. Albania: 0.206
    6. Slovakia: 0.185
    7. Switzerland: 0.142
    8. Finland: 0.132
    9. Belgium: 0.128
    10. Czech Republic: 0.123
    11. United States: 0.089
    12. Austria: 0.068
    13. The Netherlands: 0. 051
    14. Canada: 0.032
    15. England: 0.027
    16. Germany: 0.023
    17. Russia: 0.012
    18. Italy: 0.009
    Norway’s rate is undoubtedly highest because of the massacre in 2011 when a mass shooter killed 77 people.
    ..........
    Not what most of us would have expected.

    And the proportion of homicides due to mass shootings?

    Negligible.

    The homicide rate in USA for whites is somewhere below 1.2, and for Europe at the same time it was about 1.1. Practically speaking there is no difference.
