    Isn't gun control a major law in France? I mean I don't think the average citizen can own a firearm can they? Yet they have armed men murdering at will.

    Same as Britain. Very strict gun laws... and yet they still have shootings. Illegal firearms.

    Illegal firearms are everywhere, regardless of how strict or loose gun laws are. The question is rather if strict gun laws prevent accidental shootings and the use of firearms in domestic situations. I tend to believe they do. But obviously they will never stop criminals.

    There are less then 1000 accidental deaths a year due to firearms in the US. Hardly a big problem.
