17. But that points out that many poorer countries also have lower rates.

I just corrected the statement that the US was the worst. It was WAY off being factual.
Certainly if we'd NEVER had any guns here we'd be much safer. Most of the other countries NEVER had handguns as part of their society. The problem is that we DO have them. 100s of millions. And even if we made them illegal, few people would turn them in. I know a ton of gun owners. None of them would turn in anything to the govt; guns or anything else. I do think red flag laws would have a bigger impact on criminals than people expect. And harsher punishment for those who use them illegally. We will never be rid of them even though it'd be nice if we could
