7. While it's interesting to
compare our (American) statistics with those of other countries, I think that there are sooooooooooooooo many differences in the respective situation of any two (or more) countries that controlling for all of those variables- which is the only way to actually know if the removal of guns from their society is what makes the difference- is nearly impossible.

(this part not specifically directed to you, Capt.)

Anybody want to talk about practical ways to decrease firearms deaths and injuries in our own country?

Also (just a mini-rant here) has ANY prohibition of ANYTHING actually worked, EVER, once that thing has been introduced into our society? Is there a reason that I'm missing for ANYONE to actually believe that it would work vis a vis guns? :rant:
