A day late...What is the reasoning?

Massacre Tourism?

Never see actual footage of the incidents. Just people running around.

What are you trying to suggest? That this is “fake news” by “crisis actors?”

Given the unexpected nature of shootings, and the understandable hesitation to stick around long enough to record the shooter would be the reason, I reckon.

Even in war footage, there is very little footage of a shooter for the same reason. I mean, there’s no shortage of videos of soldiers/Marines unloading their weapons, but hardly any of whomever is shooting back at them. Because exposing yourself to get a few seconds clip of a distant shooter is not worth getting lead poisoning in the skull.

Before this demented guy murdered and wounded people at a Fourth of July celebration he let a wide audience know he wanted to kill people and to die. Apparently no took him seriously, including whoever sold him his guns. It's important to take people seriously, especially when they are dangerously weird.

This will just be another puff piece about how safe Japan is and how dangerous the US is. And by extension how Japan is a much better country than the US. Gets tiring real quick.

More Americans have died from a bullet than Covid.

The kid was an antifa fan and dressed as woman when he went shooting...

Why are the media hiding his mother's religious jewellery or whatever it is under a blur too?

More Americans have died from a bullet than Covid.

Not during the same time period. But, in total? Yes.

Why is that? For reporting this major news event?

Because they Japanese,they have nothing to contribute too the story,without investigation journalism

A Japanese crew? Nothing but a little sensationalism. Pathetic.

Gunshot deaths in USA, 1990-2019: 40,000

https://www.statista.com/statistics/258913/number-of-firearm-deaths-in-the-united-states/

Covid deaths in USA: 1,0200,000

NYT, 5 July 2022

If one uses 1990-2019 as a base and works back to 1789 (statistics are not available, but it’s unlikely gunshot death exceeded this figure when the population was much smaller), gunshots deaths (excluding wars) are under 300,000.

Redstorm, your post is BS.

Correction: Covid deaths 1,020,000, not 1,0200,000.

Gunshot deaths, 1990-2019, 40,000.

About 1.4 million people died from firearms in the U.S. between 1968 and 2011. This number includes all deaths resulting from a firearm, including suicides, homicides, and accidents.

41,000 AMERICANS DIE FROM GUN VIOLENCE EVERY YEAR—AN AVERAGE OF more than 110 PER DAY

America has the highest rates of gun homicide of any of the G7 countries.

Interesting Redstorm.

How could we come up with statistics that are so different?

Ever wonder how that happens?

Could it be that some “reporter” who gets it wrong has that wrong information (now misinformation) repeated by other “reporters” and so on until the shear number of citations render the original information “true”?

I respect the Giffords gun homicide site, I also believe the figures it publishes. Figures for more gun deaths than those killed in all wars are easy to verify.

America has the highest gun homicide rate in the G7. Which of those G7 countries have had more than 200 mass shootings this year?

Only in the United States could someone survive one horrific mass shooting only to be killed in another one year later.

This article is about murder by firearm. Not negligent homicide or other classes of homicide. Not suicide by firearm.

Some comments here have been deliberately exaggerated. For what end?

That nbcnews.com link addresses gun-related incidents, not murder. The numbers include use of a gun in self-defense (self-defense is a right) as well as in suicide. These are not murder though the latter category is regrettable,

The nbcnews.com article begins with “Since 1968, more than 1.5 million Americans have died in gun-related incident [emphasis mine] …”

I repeat: gun-RELATED incidents. NOT murders like the one in Highland Park.

Consider figures for 2018 (US CDCP), higher than previous years:

38,390 “deaths by firearms”

24,432 deaths by “suicide” with firearms

Deaths not by suicide (which include various types of homicide that are NOT considered murder) is 37%.

Murder is a serious crime, but this is not the plague of murder that some people would entertain.

Americans are not being mowed down in the streets.

The Media will do any thing to bring the Likes, The Score, The grades, the Ratings, and most of all the Advertising Cash.

Japanese by nature only kick you when you are down. That is why they love to hear about foreign bad news and not their own nasty little society.
