It would seem white Americans have been checking their privilege perhaps a bit too much in recent times.
Like clockwork, after every mass shooting in the States, liberals across the world jump at the opportunity to chastise America and point to Australia as the great bastion of gun control. The left will vocally cry out and ironically cite public safety as the reason for America to adopt Australia’s draconian gun laws without ever stopping to consider the implications. If the public doesn’t have access to guns, then they can’t murder each other and therefore everyone is inherently safer; or so the narrative goes. After all, we haven’t had a mass shooting since 1996, so, as a nation, we are now safer, right?
