Japan may have been successful in Banning guns but are you aware that guns helped to prevent a Japanese invasion on the US mainland. It was on the
history channel and a reporter was talking with one of the generals from Japan and he cited this as the reason they never invaded the mainland. They
knew most Americans had guns and they would not be able to defeat us.
I think you said it best when you say that we have different cultures. I think that accounts for a lot. In an article I read they say that the
Japanese media makes murders out to be monsters and focuses more on the victimes. I bet most people cant even recall one victim from the most
Also in the article one commenter says that the police in Japan do not perform autopsys to determine the cause of death. There a lot of difference
betweeen countries. I agree that these tragedies are horrible. But lets put the blame where the blame is due. On the people doing the shooting.
We dont blame the car when a drunk driver kills a family.
