Norway has pretty strict gun control laws in place, more strict than even those proposed by the Dems right now, yet a gunman managed to kill 77 people in a mass shooting there.

The idea that gun control will prevent such things is a myth.

"Prevent" as in 100% guarantee? Sure, it won't do so. Mitigate and lower the rate of? Well, I'm guessing Norway's per capita "death by gun" rate is still far lower than ours.

Huh... 1.78 (Norway) versus 10.2 (United States). Who would have thunk it?

To be more exact, in the US, the gun-related homicide rate is 3.7 people per 100k. In Norway it's 0.04 people per 100k.
