Response to spin (Reply #23)

26. I think most people would describe Germany's gun policy as "successful".

And the US's gun policy as "unsuccessful".

Germany is not the only successful model, of course, and I'm not saying they are the ideal.

Honestly, I think the whole idea that people are "oppressed" by gun laws is silly. I've lived in places with tight gun laws, tighter even than Germany. Never met a single person who felt "oppressed" or "punished" by the laws. The way they felt was "safe".
