France, England and Germany all have strict gun control. In the last few months they’ve also had their share of mass killings.
Advocating for more gun control from the point of view of “other countries do it” just doesn’t work. Comparing laws from one country to another just doesn’t work. It’s not a reasonable means to debate laws.
England has strict gun laws. England also has a queen. Should we have one too just because England has one and they seem to like it? That’s not a reasonable means of advocating either for or against any laws. Not in either direction.
We need to evaluate gun laws (existing or potential) in the U.S. strictly on their own merit.
And that is where the “more gun laws” side falls flat on its face.
We don’t need more gun laws. We need to enforce the laws already there.
The new gun laws being proposed (like banning so called assault rifles, restricting magazines, and limiting purchasing) do not achieve anything (not anything) to help solve the problem. Such laws only restrict and harass legitimate gun owners.
We need to look at the real sources of violent behavior in this country.
Most gun crimes are a result of other criminal activity. If Chicago, for example, had no gang problems, they would have no gun problems either.
