"According to a 2007 Harvard Journal of Law study, the German gun death per 100,000 citizens was 0.91 with less than 9% of German households owning guns. The Center for Disease Control, (CDC), projects U.S. gun fatalities at 14.2 per 100,000. In a 2005 Gallup study, 42% of American households claimed to own one or more firearms."
OK fine...then explain this?
The issue with gun crime isn't the guns...it's the society...we have serious issues and the longer we try to blame the guns instead of society the longer it's going to take to actually fix it.
