Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Regarding the Cato Institute's examples of Israel and Switzerland: seems like cherry picking two small, mostly homogenous societies. What about places that are more comparable to the US like Germany or France?
And for your final example: how many guns per person do those seven European countries have and how does that number compare to the US? Our country is flooded with guns. Just about enough for every man, woman, and child.
Anyway, I don't think gun control will ever be implemented in the US in a way to produce any meaningful results. That ship sailed over two hundred years ago. We might as well just get used to the idea of mass shootings occurring on a regular basis with ever increasing body counts.
