According to these statistics they are not...

The UK overtook the US in 2017.

 

But in any case you could try banning guns in the US. Good luck with that.  If even 10% of people refused, you would still have millions of firearms in circulation, and I can guarantee that more than 10% of gun owners would refuse.   So realisticallly another solution is needed. 

 

The whole gun banning thing didn't work out too well in Australia when they tried after a mass shooting. There is little evidence that it had any effect other than to disarm the population.

They tried to limit long weapons in NZ after the mosque shooting but the amount of weapons sold to the government was a lot less than the estimated number of weapons in the country. Of course the gangs have no problem obtaining weapons.

Yeah, so many mass shootings back then. Just give me a minute or so to reload...

Of course we have similar policies in place in the UK.   A lot of our supermarkets will not sell eggs or flour to teenagers at Halloween!

Why, is it the only place that sells?   Good to see some social responsibility.

True, but irrelevant to the American context. It's too late for banning them.  How will they be effectively taken/confiscated?  It can't be done, so IMHO the drive to remove them won't ever have any success. Plus there is that pesky "Constitution" thing...

 

Plus the UK has other crimes to worry about . From what I understand, the robbery and assault rates are staggering. Lots of petty crime and bold thieves who don't have to worry about being either caught or shot.  Not a great solution either I think.

The ruling class from the Queen on down have plenty of protection (with many carrying guns!)...the plebs are left to fend for themselves.

firearms and ammunition in a department store, among the biscuits, breakfast cereals  and vegetables??  Americans  don't appear to realise how bizarre that is in a civilised , western country.   No real wonder that your school kids regularly end up shooting each other.

Just imagine how safe America would be if they ALL had guns and could carry their guns ALL the time where ever they went.

 

That is the logical extension isn't it?

 

Just imagine how many dead Americans there'd be!

One doesn't have to imagine. Have you ever heard of Chicago, Il, USA?

The last few mass covid spread events the President had been saying Biden will confiscate guns

when there is absolutely no chance of it.

Because Republicans won't let them...they would if they could...Robert Francis O'Rouke said the quiet part out loud.
