We going to make knives illegal too?
It is like people tying the number of suicides to gun ownership in the US.
If you look at the true statistics………
We come 39 th. With 11.1 per 100k.
Japan comes in at # 5 with 24.4 per 100k
Japan doesn’t have guns, so they kill themselves in other ways.
The point is…. It isn’t the instruments, it is the will to do the act. Where there is a will, there is a way. If they want to kill themselves bad
enough, or kill other people, they will find a way. The lack of access to guns, or knives is not going to stop someone that has forsaken their life.
If you are already at the point that your life means nothing, then how is a few legal restrictions going to stop you?
Like the other incident the article points out. In 2009, someone deliberately drove a car through a crowd and killed seven people. Should we outlaw
Inanimate objects don’t kill people. People kill people.. The object they used to kill those people is kind of ancillary information.
