The scope: First, we looked at the G7 countries -- the countries with the largest advanced economies in the world.

The countries are Canada, the US, Japan, Germany, Italy, France, the UK.

The time period: From January 1, 2009 to May 21, 2018.

It is little wonder why the Presstitute Media Propagandists (PMP) make no reference to the mass shootings in our country as I'm sure the Establishment has given them orders to silence these from the awareness of the masses so as not to deter the sale of killing devices thus hurting the profits of those involved in the manufacture and sale of devices whose only purpose is to kill. Then too, such killing occur with such consistency (an average of 1 mass shooting EACH day in our country alone with 41 deaths and 78 injuries) they really are not news, but commonplace. How far our nation has fallen when these lives are merely written off as "sh*t happens".

Grim prognosis, but all true.

Tell us what should be done, Dennis! The young people are fighting back, but what else? I always believe in the power of the editorial page, and then voting the NRA hacks out of office works, too.....



This is how the NRA swings elections 90% of Americans and 92% of gun owners want gun reform, but the NRA has found clever ways to block that in Washington. Subscribe to our channel!

Your plan is about all that can be done, but the masses have to follow the not vote them in office part.
