    I'm so glad Mexico has strict gun control laws. That way there certainly aren't a lot of shootings in Mexico. Right?

    Which is the statistic on the macro level, when compared across the country at the micro level comparing rates of gun ownership with violent crime, it's shown there is no statistical relationship between the two.

    Regardless you tried to make the claim Switzerland was worse then the UK because of guns, and that was blatantly untrue

    The Czech Republic has a gun culture similar to ours that even permits concealed carry by the average citizen with no magazine limits or assault weapon bNs, their rate of homocide is 1.0 exactly the same as yours

    I'm guessing that was just a bit of provocation.

    I love the way its done with guns somehow makes it worse.

    No it just makes it more avoidable. The young officers tragic death in the OP is just more collateral damage done as a consequence of a crazy system

    I'm glad my country doesn't border the 300 million unmonitored guns of the US too

    I said Switzerlands gun killing was 8 times that of the UK which is true

    The Czech Republic has a gun culture similar to ours that even permits concealed carry by the average citizen with no magazine limits or assault weapon bNs, their rate of homocide is 1.0 exactly the same as yours
    And its gun killing rate is seven times that of the UK too.

    Just how much better still would these countries overall homicide rates be minus their firearms killings ?
