19. Perhaps the rest of the civilized world just haven't got our common sense

that MORE guns in the hands of more people reduces gun deaths.

Even if we prevented the sale of another gun in America, we still have 3 million. In 1993, Clinton put 100,000 more police on the streets.

We have the 10th highest gun deaths per 100 population in the world. We are worse than every other civilized country.

Here are the only countries we have fewer gun deaths than: (1). El Salvador, (2). Jamaica, (3). Honduras, (4). Guatemala, (5). Swaziland, (6). Colombia, (7). Brazil, (8). Panama, (9) Mexico then comes the good old U S of A, number 10. Not one of the nations ahead of us could be called a civilized society, (including the drug cartel nation of Mexico).
