Look, as I said, explain to me one single thing, alright?
Explain the relationship between the US having 11,000 violent gun crimes a year, and extremely lax gun laws, where the UK has 70 violent gun crimes a year, and extremely tight gun laws.
explain why the UK's rate of violent crime has increased since there have been gun bans and why the US rate has decreased despite the increase of gun ownership and carry permits
explain why cities in the US with complete handgun bans have so much more violent gun crime than nearby areas with less gun laws
