These incidents will increase in regularity and frequency because nobody will grasp the nettle of sane gun control.
All people have to do in a strict gun control state, (strict is used relative here to US guns laws) is go to another state, or online.
you can not legally send weapons
It's a number's game. 500 people in a city of 3 or 4 million is a drop in the bucket. 500 people in Denver would be insane.
Places with higher gun ownership rates also have higher firearms-related deaths, a new study finds.
In the study, published Sept. 20 in the American Journal of Medicine, researchers analyzed gun ownership rates, crime rates and deaths from firearms across 27 developed countries around the world.
"The U.S. has the highest gun ownership rates and also has the highest rate of firearm-related deaths," said study co-author Dr. Sripal Bangalore, a cardiologist at the New York University School of Medicine.
Despite the prevalence of high-profile mass shootings, such as the recent Navy shipyard shooting, where the attacker showed signs of mental illness, the prevalence of mental illness in a society is only weakly correlated with gun-related deaths.
The team looked at the fraction of people who owned guns across 27 developed nations, including the United States, Switzerland, Finland, Australia and Japan.
Gun ownership was lowest in Japan and highest, by far, in the United States.
Gun ownership rates were strongly correlated with higher death rates from firearms.
And crime didn't seem to be correlated at all with gun ownership rates. That suggests purchasing a gun doesn't have an effect on overall crime rates, which include both violent and non-violent crimes.
"We can show that guns don't make a nation safer," Bangalore said.
The study "provides some very convincing evidence that firearms-related deaths are very strongly correlated with prevalence of guns," said Dr. Eric Fleegler, a health services researcher at Boston Children's Hospital, who was not involved in the study.
Such areas with high homicide rates are for the most part drug importing and or transhipping centers.
So the homicide rate was high before a restriction on firearms was introduced. Not the other way round as some would have us believe.
Mexico borders America, marijuana and coke one way, firearms the other.
