. I've oft-repeated, but you prefer to ignore it, that US citizens are no better and NO worst than other nation's citizens. But give free and easy access to guns and you have the situation you are in, as ALL humans will act violently, no matter what country, if a firearm is at hand if they want to get even with the world, with the wife, brothers, sister, co-worker etc. Did you notice the difference in shading between the US and Western Europe, Japan, NX ,Australia, and Canada. Ever question why there is such a contrast? Are we better and more law-abiding? No. No more no less, but we have gun controls and except in extremely rare cases, handguns are NOT allowed.
