20. The problem is both the criminal and the gun.

There are criminals and crazy people in all societies. The US doesn't have a monopoly on crime. But, compared to the rest of the industrialized world, what we do have a monopoly in is gun violence and homicide. And this is because, in the US, it's really easy for criminals and crazy people to get hold of lethal weapons. Make it more difficult, and less people will die.
