Co sign on newswipe… the glorification is obviously a factor in repeat events so I am avoiding it completely. And because its distressing anyway! win win

Fascinating. There's probably some nutter out there fantasising about having a record kill number. The media love shit like this, it's going to roll on for days.

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.

Oh, I missed Australia. Still don't know the relevance of the countries chosen from 3 continents, before the USA.

Does there need to be a relevance? I assume they just picked countries based on there being a 50-50 chance of most americans having heard of them.

50/50 is a bit of a stretch

Not really, I'm just curious. It's a bit sloppy. That second one can't be right though, I would have thought West germany and Israel must have had loads more from Intelligence operations, assasinations and terrorism.

2nd one is based on hand guns, and maybe the list doesn't include people who've been killed by intelligence operations? Smiling

That's why I think those things are misleading. It seems like a selective list of people who've died. It doesnt even give a year.
