22. Why should you care? No reason, unless you are curious

You think being able to carry a gun in public is about freedom. The Brits don't see it that way. They see it as a huge public health and safety issue.
The result of these diverse points of view is a gun death rate in the US, hundreds of times greater than that of the UK. Are you happy with that? Are you happy that 30,000 die each year in the US from guns, plus hundreds of thousands are maimedmand injured. The overall cost to your society is in the billions of dollars. These are dollars which could be better used to provide socialized healthcare to millions.
If you don't care how others fix common problems, then you don't care about fixing them.
