So gun deaths are at a new high apparently. But a little digging reveals why.

Suicide rates have really been spiking. A little more digging reveals why.

The opioid epidemic has spiked suicides which in term has increased gun suicides.

 

Would be nice if CNN had done their due diligence and dug a bit deeper rather than publish propaganda.

You could also dig deeper and see how many gun deaths are justifiable shootings (self defense and justified shootings by police are also part of the statistics). I forget the numbers but there are more justifiable shootings than there are illegal shootings. It's all about fear mongering though.

But still astronomically higher than any other 1st world country. Problem is the NRA and their supporters will not allow the CDC to do any meaningful research into the causes of gun violence.

"Supporters" Politicians in Congress who have an "A" rating from the NRA won't even consider passing a bill to look into it.

Why would they pass a bill to look in to it at all? Passing bills are for passing laws not initiatives or studies.

Referring to 1st world countries, I assume you mean the list of industrialized nation? I can identify one difference right away - social / racial justice and relations. The only country that may have handled this more poorly than the US, is Japan. But of course their racial minorities are such a tiny percentage of the population, their effects are muted.

 

I'm not sure how long you've lived here or been in American cities, but the US has more in common with a country like South Africa then say Belgium or the UK. I would argue that the way minorities were treated in this country does NOT qualify the country as truly 1st world.

That would be the day that pigs fly. CNN is more of a tabloid than a news outlet.

Tabloids are more likely to understand the word ethics.

Your right. Even tabloids tell the truth occasionally unlike CNN. I guess CNN is useful for information if you know how to process it. Just take everything they say and assume the oppisite is true.
