I'm not sure the statistics do back that up.

Looking at rampage shootings resulting in 10 or more deaths on Wikipedia, it appears they are not much less common in Europe than in the US. I count two such incidents in US schools since 1990, and 4 in Europe. 5 if you include Azerbaijan in Europe. And that doesn't include Anders Breivik, who killed school children, but at a camp, not a school.

Murders are certainly more common in the US, but I don't know that mass rampage murders are more common.
