Here we go again: Lax gun laws allowed a lone gunman to shoot and kill 12 people in. . . . Oh, wait, that was actually in Cumbria, England summer before last.
The headline in The Times of London read, by the way, “Toughest Laws in the World Could Not Stop Cumbria Tragedy.”
Last summer it was a gun-and-bomb massacre in Norway that killed 77 people, many of them teens.
While multiple-victim public shootings are widely considered a uniquely American problem–that Wild West heritage of ours, you know, combined with our lax gun laws and that pesky Second Amendment–they’re actually not.
Think Columbine was the worst school shooting in history?
