Here's why Australians will Never Understand the US Obsession with Guns [View all]

<This is the number of people killed by Stephen Paddock in Las Vegas in the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.



It was more than the total number of gun-related deaths in Australia in all of 2016, excluding self harm.




Here's how many gun-related deaths there have been in the US so far in 2017, also excluding self harm.



It's worth pointing out that self harm is actually the number one category of gun-related deaths, in both the US and Australia. So the total figure of gun deaths is much higher.
