Is This How Europe Sees Americas Gun Problem?

There’s something going on in the world.

A situation we cannot ignore any longer and we need to address it. Say nay to NRA (nonsensical rifle addiction).

When the rest of the world looks at America’s gun problem, it’s often with bafflement.

Sunday with Lubach, is basically the Dutch version of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.

This satirical Dutch video describes America’s love of guns as an illness: Nonsensical Rifle Addiction, or NRA — a reference to the biggest gun lobby group in the country.

“Dear fellow Europeans,” the video’s narrator begins, “a devastating humanitarian crisis is threatening a small country on the coast of North America: the United States of America.”

It lists some shocking statistics to do with America’s gun homicides and accidents: so far this year there has been 24,000 injuries and 11,000 deaths, culminating to roughly 40 deaths a day.

“NRA is a constitutional disorder caused by a dysfunction of the prefrontal Second Amendment in the nonsensical cortex, causing patients to shoot people,” the narrator explains. “It starts with an innocent Colt, but soon patients will show signs of shotguns, sniper rifles, and M16s even. Often, patients use silencers to hide their condition.”

 Where there are fewer guns, there are fewer gun deaths. 

“We Europeans can help,” the narrator claims, citing programs like “the NRAA.” “But your help is needed urgently. We cannot turn away. So donate now.”
