And there isn't a gun crisis in America, either. The top 10 causes of death in the US are: heart disease, cancer, accidental injuries, chronic lower respiratory diseases, stroke, Alzheimer disease, diabetes, influenza and pneumonia, kidney disease, and suicide. This does not even factor in the most common cause of death in America which is abortion. In 2015, the most recent year for which data is available, a total of 638,169 abortions were reported. Far, far away much more of a crisis than mass shootings of which the total so far is 313.

You seem to cherry pick your "crisises".

Gun homicide rate in the US is 25 times that of other high income countries.

"Access to a gun increases the risk of death by homicide by two times"


So ya, BSmith is right, the US does NOT seem to have a gun problem.

. . America can greatly reduce the amount of gun violence and mass/ school shootings through massive gun law reform.



Yes, it can with actual security and this can be accomplished immediately.

It shouldn?t be, nor be seen as a partisan issue.

Three countries have gun possession in their constitutions, the US has the strongest wording for possession by the people...

Politicians can almost at will; in other countries dictate to citizens what rights
THEY, the politicians...will allow them to have!!!

One can easily say that the conflicts leading up to the constitution were civil disputes/ civil war. Besides Gjeebes said civil war... not The Civil War.

Are you implying the logical fallacy of a slippery slope?

Or are you just describing a republic?

You get a ?D? in social studies.
