Mr. Casella in her latest letter to the editor asked to name other countries with mass killings or shootings such as the United States – France, Finland, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, Spain, Norway, Russia, Bosnia, Serbia, India, Nigeria, Philippines, Azerbaijan, Brazil, and Israel.
The United States is 66 years old per capita. Not the best numbers, but far from what the media and Mr. Casella wants you to believe.
Norway has the highest death toll, 1,888. The US comes in at number eleven at 0.089 (per capita). Now on a fair basis, Norway has the lowest violent crime rate in the world. Maybe Mr. Casella and the rest of the people can explain that?
Switzerland requires all men over 18 to own a gun at home. Maybe Switzerland is concerned about criminals taking over.
President Biden in a recent speech called for sensible gun control. What about sensible criminal controls? Does anyone believe that criminals will turn into law-abiding citizens?
Even Pak Cuomo felt we could release 10,000 (criminals) citizens who abide by the law and close some prisons and have a beautiful world to live in. I want to see the discharge rate.
