Remind me again, when did England or Germany adopt a bill of rights that restricts their governments from infringing on their citizen's basic rights to gun ownership? If you want to live in a gun restrictive society, you are free to move there. You choose to stay in America, where we have certain rights that our government is constitutionally limited from infringing upon.

Subtract suicides and guns possessed illegally, and get back to us with how shocking that statistic is.
