I’ll bite on that one.
Not all countries with strict gun laws have lower gun violence. Look at Mexico.
A great deal has to do with culture and population. Germany, Switzerland, and Japan. Different gun laws, but very little in the way of gun violence. Why is that? Culture. I’ll bet in some countries you could have loaded guns hanging in banners strewn around every populated area and you would still have very little gun violence. Ownership is not the demon many paint it to be. It’s the cultural re enforcement that DEMANDS respect at all costs and if you need to use a gun for respect in order to get your anger out then so be it. Or if you happen to be bat crap crazy and just go and find a gun anywhere for your disillusioned use.Blocking ownership and fulfilling the ultimate dream of ‘no guns anywhere’ will not solve anything. In the US, a large widespread population where violent crime occurs will not be deterred by an unarmed population.
