I'm not even saying fewer guns would lessen these numbers. Lot's of countries have as many, if not more guns than we do, and they don't have nearly these numbers. We're a nation that likes to kill each other, and I don't know why.
Most nations have a unified culture - they aren't dumping grounds for divergent groups of people who have no interest in adapting or blending with other cultures.
