A Practical Guide to Canada's Gun Laws for Americans
notice the difference in homicide rate where guns are used:
USA 3.98 per 100,000 population
canada 0.4 per 100,000
There are federal laws that add time to crimes committed with a fire arm so thinking that scaring criminals with strict guns laws flawed.
No, it is not true at all. I can tell you that if there were no guns on this planet the level of violence would rise because the police would have no way to confront the criminals. Banning guns has not worked to stop violence; it just means that the public has no guns while the criminals do. Murder and rape are banned but here in Texas we just caught a man who had raped at least nine elderly women. He didn’t need a gun or a knife but if one of those old women had been armed he might not have raped the others.to the contrary, an outright banning of all guns would stop a lot of our violence. not that i advocate that, but it's true.
Great examples of an over balance of criminals having more guns than the public at large. Much of the violence in DC and Chicago is over drug turf so even without guns the drug dealers would kill their rivals.The level of violence in cities like Washington D.C. and Chicago clearly serve as evidence to the contrary.
Just like the supply of drugs? How would you deal with the guns that are already in the hands of law abiding citizens?? You can’t have mine…….the supply would dry up.
Even with such a guarantee I would and will not give up my responsibility to protect my family.if I was 100% guaranteed that the anyone else could protect me and my family, without my guns, as well as I can protect myself with them, I'd give up my firearms in a heartbeat
Right you are. I can deal with three guys with knives if I’m armed but naked I will get cut up.Assuming all guns magically disappeared, we would simply have more crime with other weapons.
Mexico?? Other countries that have more restrictive gun laws have a less diverse population.countries with guns bans have far less violent crime than we do.
Please refrain from attack the majority of the public that watch the news. Or show evidence that people who watch Fox News are racists??Fox News: Not Racists, but #1 with Racists.
actually, it is you who is unable to wrap his head around what the facts are telling us
the incidence of murder by guns is dramatically lower in those countries which restrict gun ownership
Just because the Japanese have a lower incidence of gun violence is meaning less because they just don’t kill each other like our drug dealers do.
One more time. Look at who is killing who and tell us what Canada has to do with this argument? Canada doesn’t have a population of criminal drug dealers willing to kill their competition.our homicide rate is 10X that of canada's
the major difference:
tolerance of guns
