And you guys said that this kind of stuff can only happen in the USA.

Switzerland is very different from other European countries in that it has no restrictions on gun ownership, I think it has nearly a 50% ownership rate.

So I think the kind of thing that happens can happen in countries where gun ownership is high.

I don't think the USA is unique in this respect, more guns = more chance of killings

more poor uneducated people, the more chance of killings. Guns don't choose to kill, it is the person pulling the trigger.

So Americans are 25 X as stupid as Brits then.....?

The process of observation changes that which is observed, hence you cannot photograph reality.
