Lauren Boebert seized on the recent mall shooting in Copenhagen as proof that gun control laws don't work. She didn't mention that it was the first mass shooting in seven years.
There have been more mass shootings in the U.S.
The country ofDenmark has some of the strictest gun laws in Europe. It's time to admit that gun laws don't stop mass shootings.
Three people were killed and four others were injured when a man opened fire at a shopping mall. The suspected shooter was armed with a rifle when he was arrested.
There are strict gun laws in Europe. After the purchaser passes a background check, licenses to own firearms can be obtained. Automatic weapons and carrying guns in public are not allowed. Two people and the shooter were killed in a terror attack in 2015.
There were several mass shootings over the July 4th weekend, including one at an Independence Day parade in a Chicago suburb that left six people dead. There have been more than 300 mass shootings in the United States this year.
Boebert was shredded by critics.
Colorado had 364 murders in 2021, Denmark had 39. We have the same population as they do.
It's the guns. https://t.co/md7a0RHizD
