The U.S. is well below the world average in terms of the number of mass public shootings, and the global increase over time has been much bigger than for the United States.

Shootings and stabbings, oh my oh yeah, "love makes the world go 'round" . Who said that? Yeah, right.

Used to happen every once in a while, now seems like an every day occurrence.
