State government regulations are worthless.
With more than 30 murders every day, our entire country is a shooting spree.
Not really, no.
List of countries by intentional homicide rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
If you break out the world by intentional homicides per capita, the U.S. actually falls rather low on the scheme of things.
And, if you look at the U.S. on a state by state basis, what you find is that there are regions of the U.S. with high rates of homicide, but that tends to cluster in areas with large urban populations and high rates of transience and poverty.
Okay smart guy/person - how many were done by criminals who would NOT be able to buy weapons under strict gun control laws?
mexico has strict gun control laws. Did the US arm the citizens to protect themselves against the cartels? No. The US armed the cartels so they could murder over 50,000 unarmed mexicans.
Disarming Americans doesn't mean disarming the criminals. The US government would make sure criminals have what they need, just like the US government made sure the cartels had what they need. It would just give the US government an instant army in the streets able to bought with promises of increased looting.
really? don't you think that's a stretch?
and couldn't one as easily say that the gun culture in the US is a huge problem?
or say there isn't ENOUGH regulation?
just tossing things out there randomly... like you did.
How about every once in a while you offer something of substance
Statistically speaking, I don't think your claims are accurate. There appears to be zero correlation between gun regulations and reductions in violent crime.
Speaking of tossing random thoughts......
Gun culture is a "huge problem?"
Less people own guns legally, however those that do own more now than they used to. I don't think that's exactly a good thing.
