    why don't you look up a certain demography in the USA and see how many acts of violence are done by them with a gun, and then go look and see if that demography is present in Israel. LOL

    What he doesnt say is that guns are all over the place as almost everyone serves in the military and has an issue weapon. These aren't personally owned weapons so dont count that way.
    Another factoid blown to hell.

    Three multiple shootings in a week with assault weapons. One of those shootings resulting in the deaths of 20 children, and six of their teachers. The present trends are such that in two years gun deaths in the US will be greater than deaths from traffic accidents.

    Yet the gun nuts are still stating what we need are more guns.

    Isreal is also a place where they also do what works, like profiling. If anyone has traveled there recently you'll know what I'm talking about. They are not stopping little old ladies in wheel chairs in airports, they profile everybody. It is a mush different place to live, and I bet a much higher percentage of people have/own guns, and a much higher percentage are/were in the military and know how to use them. They don't have the PC police in Isreal.

    Total non-sequitur as well as inappropriate extrapolation from present trends.
    In fact gun violence has been declining overall for 20 years.
