Are you suggesting that they don't have all those kinds of shootings in Argentina? There have been any number of cases here where a family members shots or stabs and kills 3, 4, 5 other family members. I don't know what number technically constitutes a "mass" killing but neither 3, 4 nor 5 are not small numbers in my opinion. Argentina's "mass" shootings may not be on the same scale as in the US, but how many deadly home invasions in the conurbano does it take for those numbers to reach per capita equivalencies. Yes, a home invasion here does not draw the attention that a mass killing does in the States, but that does not mean that Argentina is safer overall? And people will say, but wait, at least Argentines do not have to worry about their children being shot and killed at school? But how many young people have been killed in parts of the conurbano over their cell phones. Again, a cell phone robbery and murder do not draw the kind of media attention that a school shooting does, but does that really mean that children are any safer here? I bet parents in certain parts of Argentina (not the parts where most BAExpats live) worry a lot about their children coming home alive. Have you not heard of "los monos" in Rosario? If they are not a gang, they sure act and shoot like one.But more of them happen in the USA, and in addition to that, we have mass shootings, random shootings, accidental shootings, drunken shootings, gang shootings, and more, in the USA.
