Gun crime in the US has been declining for years, even as tens of millions of new guns have been bought, including millions of scary-looking-rifles.The FBI says that in 2007 rifles (ALL rifles, not “assault” rifles) were used to kill 453 people. 5 years later, in 2011, it’s down to 323. (At that rate, if we keep buying enough rifles, we’ll have zero rifle murders by 2025. ;) )
Also, state after state has passed new laws allowing concealed carry. In every case people have predicted, as you just did, the return of the “wild west”. Of course it’s never happened. Crime decreases.
Tell me, please, Morty, why are you so concerned about US politics from Germany?
