7. I'm sorry, background checks and "improved mental health" is just window dressing

 

Here's the facts: in Detroit Michigan, which is about 2 miles from downtown Windsor, Ontario, Canada, there were over 400 gun murders last year, (2012). In Windsor, Ontario, there were less than 15 gun deaths. There's the same movies in the cinemas, the same computer games, the same music, the same TV station violence, the same language, the same working middle class economy.

The only difference between these two cities, less than 2 miles apart: availability of guns and less of the same illegal drugs in Canada. (Drugs harder to get across the border, but about equally illegal in both places).

The ONLY solution to stopping death by gunfire: make guns very very very hard to get without government permission to own one, (for hunting, target practice, etc.).
