    Check out the murder rates for each nation....

    England's rate of violent crime was much lower BEFORE they started banning guns. In the USA there are more guns NOW than there were in the 60's and yet our rates of violent crime are LOWER. Indeed, white american rates of gun violence are now lower than English rates of white gun violence and has been the case every year since the UK banned handguns.

    There are far more guns in the US today than 35-40 years ago, and yet the crime rates, including the crime rates involving guns, are roughly the same.

    If more guns = more crime, why havent the crimes rates jumped?

    Re: Firearms - The Primary Problem

    If the problem is the people who are pulling the trigger, and I think that it is too. We need to get rid of guns so they don't have no darn triggers to pull.

    I am a gun owner and this is the only logical answer.

    Thanks for clarifying my choice and making it easy. I love my guns and enjoy them the was tiger woods enjoys golf, but If we need to save lives, then our guns have to go.

    People would still die from violent crimes, but there would not be many drive by stabbings.

    I agree. People kill people. yet what are those things that they shoot bullets with? They are called Guns, and some stupid people use guns to kill other people. Since we are not going to execute half of the USA, then maybe guns have to be taken from hands of people who kill people.

    It is the missuse of spoons that makes people fat. Frankly I can't see a corrlation between the spoons and Guns. We use spoons to feed ourselves and our children and we use guns to kill ourselves and our children.

    I own 7 hand guns and 3 shotguns, and 4 hunting rifles. I would give them up to save my children's and my grandchildren's lives from being shot by People who Kill people.

    Maybe the Primary thing that we need to do, is disarm people who kill people.

    People who bother to get a concealed-carry permit do not pull out their guns and shoot police officers.
