Some will show a correlation between more guns, more violence. But the problem is why so many folks want, and do, kill other folks. And for the civilized countries it is a US Problem. But to the dropping of the crime rate, I read that Chicago went six days without a shooting, which is a new record.
The suicides by gun is a really big number in the US. Oh the modern ills of modern society.
My idiot neighbour across the street, hit a jogger with his van and killed him.
Jogger was a popular volunteer fire fighter. Neighbour was a smart kid about 40, who was self medicating. He has wisely left the Island.
