I’m a Canadian.
I some time struggle, trying to figure out the insanity, in the U.S.A.
The only country in the world that idolizes guns.
In America, there is more death at the barrel of a gun, then all the peaceful nations of the world, combined.
What a sad reputation to have.
Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.
Really!, you had me fooled. o_O
That argument might work for some Americans, however the rest of the world thinks that’s F’n insane.
Bullets in guns kill people, when they get shot by people with guns.
So, here’s what I think.
You have the rights to bear arms, the law doesn’t say, it has to be cheap.
You have the rights to bear arms, the law doesn’t say, it has to be easy.
You have the rights to bear arms, the law doesn’t say, it includes the bullets.
Keep you guns!
Regulate the sale of bullets.
A bullet tax.
Make it so, it’s so expensive for the general public, to buy guns and bullets, that it makes people think twice about their need for a gun. Say, twenty dollars a bullet, collect it all as taxes, that will go to help victims of violence and regulating the sale of bullets or, anything else that might make sense.
Make it so, you can’t buy bullets without a license and, can prove that the gun your buying the bullets for is legal and, is register to you.
Make it so, you can only buy bullets in a registered bullet shop. Like the way you can only buy liquor in a Liquor store, in most places in Canada. No more, K-mart bullets sales or, anywhere else for that matter.
Make it so, that all laws pertaining to guns, penalties are tough and enforced!
Make it so, that the fines and jail time, are extreme.
Now I can go on, trying to point out things that may help out but, what’s the point, I’m Canadian, It’s not my problem.
Besides, I don’t think anything’s going to change.
I’m not sure there’s a cure, for your countries insanity!
Here’s a few stats, as a parting shot. O_O
Canada Firearm homicides, 2010: 170.
America Firearm homicides, 2010: 8,775.
Can hardly what for the 2011 stats to come out.
Oh, just so you know, we have guns in this country!
Firearms registered in Canada (as of September 2011): 7,865,994.
Mostly long guns for hunting.
However, you won’t find a Bushmaster .223 semi-automatic rifle in this country, used for hunting.
Just for the record, hand guns are a restricted weapon, in Canada.
