wait a second, is anyone here seriously being paid doing this?
For those always mis-interpret me deliberately, again my point is on gun control of specific weapons, not gun ban to take away your guns.
The United States has notoriously liberal gun control laws, and it has the highest rate of gun ownership in the world. Another sad fact is so many times we were on the headlines of mass killings leading the world of developed countries. For those of you limit your sight, open them into all other developed countries in the world.
For most people who can read, please compare gun control policies and crime rate between, say European countries and US.
For people are stilling reading this thread. I have quoted links of some research from Yale professors about US region.
Now let's look over the world. Some data you can find here to compare US versus others especially developed countries,
Here’s how U.S. gun violence compares with the rest of the world
Gun homicides and gun ownership listed by country
Don't worry about @JROBs any more. We have reached the goal, proved their data source is not trusted, their logic is desperate. It's not about stopping dogs barking, we know we cannot. It's about people watching this and how they think.
I have pointed to some research real scholars have done, if anyone wants to find more academic conclusion please dig into them.
"anyone saying the regulations on automatic weapons is why they haven't been used any massacres is ignoring the prohibitive cost of purchasing them and the resulting lower prevalence of their private ownership."
I assume you agree they are not used in crime IS because of the low private ownership. Of course you don't agree setting strict control cannot achieve the same goal, only high prices can. But it's not about what you think, it's about people with common sense think. Period.
I was trying to figure some practical solution on this complex issue, just always distracted by those stupid arguments. I believe the situation can be improved by setting stricter control on most dangerous weapons and the effective procedures to enforce the law. There are certainly other factors on this issue but since it is the focus of this thread.
