I read something that struck a chord with me, even if it’s just a effectist phrase: Sandy Hook was a key moment in US history, when American society accepted by default that dozens of dead children is still a fair price to pay for ‘gun freedom.’
Unfortunately, Sandy Hook wasn't transformative.It was revelatory

The US apparently has problems other countries don't have to deal with: Feral hogs invading the backyards of families with children, and bears roaming around school districts looking for pyramids of grain.

Iceland number 10!? wtf, surprising, I would have thought they'd have the same regulations about guns as we do, here it's impossible to get a gun.

We're less than 5% of the world's population and we own over 40% of the guns (statistically)....more as we don't track them. Carry on! Nothing to see here :eyes:

They probably do but there's only one city and like a few hundred thousand people total, so it's probably just one guy with like 50 guns in a collection.
