And yet countries that ban ownership of assault rifles and handguns by the average person don't have these crimes. They just don't.
We need to be MORE like these countries, not less. We need to ban all assault rifles, and severely restrict the ownership of handguns. One per person, that's it, no more.
Yes because crazy people will stop if they can't find a gun. In China 22 children were stabbed recently. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2248054/China-stabbing-22-children-elderly-woman-stabbed-outside-primary-school-Chinese-knifeman.html Don't forget the deadliest attacks in America did not involve guns (911 and Oklahoma City Bombings). I personally think one of the more dangerous substances currently sold to anyone in our country is gasoline. Cheap, highly flamable, explosive when contained, and it's available in VERY large quantity everywhere. So should we ban gasoline or should we work on the real problem, mental health?
