You are assuming that I am unique
In between helping us and manipulating public opinion and given the elevation of the Netherlands and global climate change you should probably spend some time learning to swim.
I merely point out that you are arguing from a biased opinion of one.

Eleven pages and I’m still here. And so are my arguments, undefeated.
Sorry, old fellow. You can’t win this one. You’re not just wrong; you’re in the wrong.
Eleven pages and I’m still here, undefeated. You still have nothing to show "addiction" to firearms. You may not like the situation in the US. You may think you have great insight. You have merely provided the simplistic solution of "no privately owned firearms in the US" but when pressed, have no actual process for how it is to be done. That is the hard part so you do not address it and merely attempt to manipulate opinion in the fashion of your chosen profession.
European countries have significant numbers of privately owned firearms but you neglected to call for the elimination of all of those firearms. Are Europeans addicted to firearms, also? Wouldn't all those restrictions on ownership and storage that make a firearm much more difficult to own indicate a higher level of addiction? The European addict is willing to do much more to get a fix; even going so far as to keeping his drug locked away at a distant range or shooting club whereas the casual user from the US has them laying around all over.
Sorry, old soul. Your argument is unsupported. Your solution is simplistic. Your energies are misdirected.
You still have nothing to show "addiction" to firearms.
