    According to Germany's Der Spiegel, German police shot only 85 bullets in all of 2011, a stark reminder that not every country is as gun-crazy as the U.S. of A. As Boing Boing translates, most of those shots weren't even aimed anyone: "49 warning shots, 36 shots on suspects. 15 persons were injured, 6 were killed."

    See, you're just not thinking like a ConservaRepub. If they had distributed tens of thousands of guns all over the country, then there would have been enough armed people to stop the crime and prevent those 6 people from being killed.

    It is remarkable. I would imagine that the founders would be horrified at the proliferation of weapons and chuckle at the suggestion that their intent was for anyone to own weapons outside of the "well regulated militia" they mentioned.

    I'm curious, why do you think we have so many shooting related deaths here relative to other developed countries?
