The whole anime thing makes me think this might be more because of modern's society's moving away from traditional values and towards incelism

With at least 26 killed, the fire was the worst mass killing in Japan since a man stabbed and killed 19 people at an assisted living facility in western Tokyo in 2016.

Americans prefer mass shootings

perhaps we should be a bit more intellectually honest in our analysis and
consider the per-capita rate of violent crimes and the cumulative death tools

Since gun death statistics in the U.S. generally include suicides (is that intellectually honest?) an intellectually honest analysis should probably include such in the Japan crime stats/deaths.

Last I heard it's about a hundred people a day in the US that die via firearms?

Suicides in Japan in 2014 ran to about 70 per day. Mostly men 20-45. Suicide is actually the leading cause of death in Japan among that demographic.

I don't know how that works out per capita.

The devil is in the details and the pitbull is in the tub.

Gotta go

If Trump wins in 2020, we'll be having to deal with mass suicides.

Losing anyone deranged enough to commit suicide because of a political election would be a net gain on society

There's some weird shit going on in Japan.

"About 613,000 people aged 40 to 64 are believed to fall into the category of recluses, who hide themselves away in their homes without working, the government’s first survey on the age group showed Friday.

The estimated number of recluses, known as hikikomori, in that age group is higher than those age 15 to 39. There are an estimated 541,000 recluses that fall into the younger age bracket, a Cabinet Office survey in 2015 showed.

The total number of social recluses in Japan is thought to be over 1 million, an official said."

"Mexico has only one gun store. It’s controlled by the army in Mexico City. The gun laws for civilians are strict, with six-month background checks and a federal registry keeping track of every weapon. Person to person firearm sales is prohibited. Calibers are restricted to .380 or less. Tijuana’s police chief, Sotomayor, said Tijuana’s proximity to the U.S. makes it easy for smugglers to saturate the city with American guns."

“It’s very hard to buy a gun in Mexico,” Sotomayor said. “We have a very intense process before you can buy one. If you guys had that, it would be really helpful.”

More than 33,000 people were murdered in Mexico last year, an all-time high. The police chief of Tijuana, Mexico’s most violent city, told KPBS “nearly all” of the more than 2,000 weapons seized in the city since 2016 were American-made: AK-47s, AR-15s, Glocks and more."
