1. America’s out-of-control guns make it the most violent place in the world. False. First of all, there are two different types of violence. The first is violence by a government against its people. The second is violence by a people against each other.

Thankfully, America is still way, way, way low on the list of violence by a government against its people. I’m sure that the beleaguered citizens in North Korea, or China, or Mugabe’s Zimbabwe, or Gaza and the West Bank, Saudi Arabia, or Iran, or in any other dictatorship around the world would love to have a chance to live in America. They would laugh at what we call “violence,” because they understand that the worst violence is always that visited by an armed government against an unarmed citizenry.

As for the people against people violence, putting aside fairly anarchic places such as Brazil or Peru or Mexico, America still doesn’t even rank near the top of the list. The most violent place to live if you’re afraid of your fellow citizens is . . . drumroll please . . . England, a country with ferociously stiff gun control laws. .......


So much for gun control......

6. America’s culture is violent. Sort of true, but let’s figure out where to place the blame. I say “sort of true” because, while America certainly isn’t up there with Britain or certain other European countries when it comes to violence, we’re certainly a more violent country than Iceland or Japan. (Although Japan has an insanely high suicide rate, so lack of both violence and guns doesn’t mean lack of suffering.) Because we are a ginormous, heterogeneous country with a huge influx of immigrants, both legal and illegal, we are never going to have the social unanimity that other countries use as a counter to violence. We cannot mimic Iceland or Japan because our population is too differently constituted. In this regard, it’s worth noting that Nordic countries such as Sweden, Norway, and Denmark that have opened their Leftist hearts to a vast influx of Muslim immigrants who don’t subscribe to Nordic social norms have seen a huge increase in one very specific type of violence: rape.

However, the UK has a very small murder rate from guns.

Also, not only do guns kill, they also can run up huge medical bills for Obama Care, when people shoot other people, or have gun accidents. In otherwords, one can't have one's cake and eat it too; medical care for all, and no effort to keep people out of the surgeon's office.

That's right, they've started using knives, cricket bats, hammers, pitchforks, axes and the like instead.

Genghis Khan never owned a gun.....

@Foofie,
Try reading what Genghis Khan's sons did to the city of Merv without a single gun...
