It's simple logic - less guns = less gun violence.
In the 1980's, Margaret Thatcher had a complete gun recall in the UK after a school shooting.
There's not been one since.
There is a DIRECT correlation with countries that have strict gun control and low gun crime.
Places like Japan, UK, and several others where there are strict gun controls have some of the lowest gun crime rates in the world.
Places like USA, Mexico, Venezuela where there are few gun controls have the highest gun crime rates in the world.
if you have a gun in the house, you're at least 6 times more likely to have it used on YOU during commission of a crime than you are to use it to
The NRA has managed to successfully convince the easily brainwashed masses that this is not the case.
With gun control, just like many other things that are causes of the far right wing, you have to be totally devoid of seeing the basic facts of things
going on around you right in front of your face to believe much of what they're telling you.
The second you say "hey, wait a minute, that doesn't seem right", you're ostracized from the group and ridiculed, so no one speaks out because of fear
Just like religions that banish people who question their place, anyone who questions the right wing brainwashing is put out to pasture, and separated
immediately from the rest of the flock.
