Im a guy in the uk, and while I think that the type of Gun legislation in the USA from state to state is partly to blame for this, its not the guns or
knives or weapons that kill people, it the people using them. While this is shocking to hear about so many deaths in law enforcement in the USA, i
cant honestly say it suprises me. Have you compared these stats to other westen countries? And take the size of the USA into account, there may be
millions of good people there, but that also means you get a lot of bad people in the mix too. Its also worrying as gun crime here in London has
reached fever pitch, with many air ambulances being restricted by no fly zones because of random loonies taking pot shots with rifles, handguns and
crossbows.....I have friends in the proffesion and they will no longer fly because of this.....More guns means the people who are likely to kill
anyone, suddenly have an easy and quick way to do it as many times as they can reload. Scary stuff my friend.
