Emigrating isn’t always that easy, OP. You can also opt to move to a part of the US where gun violence is less common. Honolulu?

In most other developed nations, you're more likely to be assaulted or mugged than the US. Those crimes exceed murder by thousandfold. If fear of being murdered is your concern, probably Singapore.

You could always check out the south pole. Not too many people around. Just remember to pack some extra clothes as I hear it gets pretty cold down there.

I'd be more worried about being shot by a demented redneck or bullied teen in the US than about a terrorist attack in any of those countries you have mentioned

People keep saying Canada is an alternative, without realizing just how cold it gets there in most places.

The US is a diverse place not all states are the same
Firearm death rates in the US by state (per 100,000)

Top 5
1. Alaska: 19.59
2. Louisiana: 19.15
3. Alabama: 17.79
4. Mississippi: 17.55
5. Wyoming: 17.51

Bottom 5
Hawaii: 2.71
Massachusetts: 3.18
New York: 4.39
Connecticut: 4.48
Rhode Island: 5.33

Though that's still pretty bad considering most developed nations have rates <1

As that is your view, then leave. The majority of people in the US do not have this pessimistic view and will stay. We've dealt with adversity for 100's of years and still the high majority stay. We will not be refugees from the US, Period.
