    In the Netherlands we call it Europa, like the smallest of the gallilean moons of Jupiter.

    We call it Europa in Spanish too but I'm speaking 'MURRICAN right now so it's more like yourope.

    sounds like what people have been saying is not that we are reaching the end of Europe but the end of your rope, all this time we have been misunderstanding the desperation and pleas for help as people doomsaying the EU.

    While your comment is off topic, how do you define a mass shooting?

    i have no definition of it, and i assume the different country has different definition. I liked the video, but while we are laughing at crazy NRA lobbyists i wonder if some part of europe is better? (If i had a definition for it, i would say more then 2 people shot, so 3+)
    While wiki says 4+ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_shooting

    Just having a website like this for a country is interesting, havent found any similiar about europe though.

    You see I believe this is where the discrepancy lies. I do not feel the average individual would call 4 people a mass shooting. Unfortunate? Yes, but a mass shooting to me is more like 8+ . It is also interesting that the statistics you cited exclude cases where other crimes were committed. I am not certain how that impacts the number but feels odd.

    at how many grains of sand does sand become a pile, at how many grains does it become a mound, when a hill?
    I'd rather see you post some funny satire than debate it but you are correct that doctors in the US should probably knock it off with the opioids.
