We're not, it turns out.  Seems it was all just a bunch of hooey says a notable left wing news site called, 'NPR'.

The School Shootings That Weren't : NPR


We're not that mass shooting capital of the world, either, as it turns out.


Sorry, Despite Gun-Control Advocates' Claims, U.S. Isn't The Worst ...

I am not aware of any school shootings in the UK in the 21st century.  I could not find any on Google.

Well, there was this one;  Dunblane school massacre


I'm glad there aren't more.

You have more Jihadi Muslims recruiting malcontents than the US has...good luck with that. Extremist Christianity isn’t all bad. Balance of power. I am concerned about Arabs who come here and take over middle income jobs. It’s a common infiltration method, so innocent and devious. China gained Tibet more dramatically, infiltration being so easy with such a large population to use. Immigration saves us, but it’s still a puzzle Lady Liberty can’t seem to resolve.

The most powerful thing Arab American activists and advocates can do is to know the community they are representing. Most policymakers are unaware of the size, diversity, and interests of the Arab American community. It is our job to teach them, and to use our collective influence to promote policies together. Arab immigrants began coming to the U.S. in sizable numbers during the 1880’s. Today, it is estimated that nearly 3.7 million Americans trace their roots to an Arab country. Arab Americans are found in every state, but more than two thirds of them live in just ten states: California, Michigan, New York, Florida, Texas, New Jersey, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Metropolitan Los Angeles, Detroit, and New York are home to one-third of the population. .... Arab Americans are as diverse as their countries of origin, with unique immigration experiences that have shaped their ethnic identity in the U.S. While the majority of Arab Americans descend from the first wave of mostly Christian immigrants, Arab American Muslims represent the fastest growing segment of the Arab American community. Contrary to popular assumptions or stereotypes, the majority of Arab Americans are native-born, and nearly 82% of Arabs in the U.S. are citizens. While the community traces its roots to every Arab country, the majority of Arab Americans have ancestral ties to Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Egypt and Iraq. http://www.aaiusa.org/demographics Just in case you’re wondering why we get involved. It’s not just about the oil.
