I find it interesting that some countries with the stricter gun laws have the highest murder rates (Mexico), and others where the opposite is true (Switzerland). And it occurs to me that those with a secret agenda who wish to disarm its untrustwoirthy children...er...citizens...use the words "to reduce gun violence" or words to that effect. If there were no guns (as if that were possible), there would be no gun violence, that's true. But it doesn't mean you would be safer. I guess they don't care about the body count as long as fewer are done by shooting.
I don't buy it. In the USA, anyway, they (the anti-gun people) have access to all the same public records and statistics as the NRA, and therefore it is impossible for them to not know that they are doing no good at best, or else making things worse. And this begs the question of what they are really trying to accomplish, doesn't it?
