When it comes to mass shootings where are the safest places in the United States? Well, one place is irrefutably New England. Granted, New England is home to one of our most horrific mass shootings—at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, where 26 people, including 20 first grade students and 6 staff members were killed, and 2 staff members were injured. But remember, Newtown, Connecticut, is only about 60 miles north of New York City. Is that still idyllic New England? Regardless, New England is still ranked as a mass shooting haven. In fact, Northern New England (Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont) is mass shooting free. Meaning there has never been any there. So is that reason to relocate to New England. Well, probably not in and of itself. But consider this: New England is devoid of the violent crime that is part and parcel to so many places in this country, and serious, or even moderate instances, of civil unrest and riots just doesn’t happen there. In addition, mother nature has largely spared “Patriots Nation” of the wrath of elsewhere. If New England gets earthquakes, hurricanes, wildfires, and tornados, which are exceedingly rare, they’re generally minor ho-hum events. New England also has no volcanoes to erupt. Lastly, the insect population in New England, which has become a major threat elsewhere in the United States, is consistently kept in check by winter kill.
If I were you, I’d pack my bags.
