At least 27 dead that's a big one even by American standards.

Been working away with some Americans lately and one was showing me his gun shopping list for after Xmas. He was showing me on a website lazer scoped shotguns, concealable hand guns (he liked the fact you could put it in the small of your back… Think he just liked that term) and some semi automatic rifles. Amazing you can get that stuff over there for just a few hundred dollars and a couple of weeks wait.

It could have happened three times over but the US right to bear arms is here to stay sadly.

Unsure if this is 100% accurate but it wouldn't surprise me


Elvrum, what's your take on this?

Well the 1st thing you need to do is measure that by population, it will still look bad but not AS bad.

Only 4 out of 7 are in Europe, and it shows all the countries in North America.

Here's another version (must be old as it includes West Germany).


List of gun deaths by country based on the rate of deaths per 100,000 people.

this list has the death rate per 100,000 people and the total number of deaths.

having a laser sight on a sniper rifle is kinda pointless though

Laughing out loud If I was starving I could. I’d make poison darts out of the poison of the deadly frogs. One milligram of that poison can kill a monkey. Or a man. Prick yourself and you’d be dead within a day. Or longer. Different frogs, different times.
