First degree murder charge, means they think he planned it. He is saying he snapped as a defense. I'll wait for a trial and a verdict, two stories here.

BTW, he had domestic violence history according to that article

The main area where the U.S. exceeds the firearm violence of other nations is in comparison to other affluent nations. Using the U.N. data, European nations -- even former eastern bloc countries -- typically have rates well below 1 per 100,000, or far less than one-third the frequency seen in the U.S. The pattern is similar in other advanced industrialized nations, such as Canada, Taiwan, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.

One study published in 2011 confirms this finding. The study, published in the Journal of Trauma -- Injury Infection & Critical Care, found that firearm homicide rates were 19.5 times higher in the U.S. than in 23 other "high income" countries studied, using 2003 data. Rates for other types of gun deaths were also higher in the U.S., but by somewhat smaller margins: 5.8 times higher for firearm suicides (even though overall suicide rates were 30 percent lower in the U.S.) and 5.2 times higher for unintentional firearm deaths.


where does mexico lie? how is its enforcement of law? does it function like Canada, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, New Zealand?


Mexico has had a defacto gun ban since 1971. They won't grant permits to anyone.

Only one legal gun shop in the whole country.

40,000 gun deaths a year. That's way more than the US BTW.



does mexico match up?


Is Mexico industralized? Hecho en Mexico
They even have microchip plants.

And again, those countries chosen are just convenient cherry-picks.

Mexico is not a superpower country like the U.S. very little influence and very little in terms of average person being middle class level. It's a struggling country always has been for years. Can't compare

It's perfectly fair.

I don't cherry-pick countries that suit my purposes, I'll look at every country.
