The Case for Gun Control - TIME

The Case for Gun Control - TIME:

"The gun-homicide rate per capita in the U.S. is 30 times that of Britain and Australia, 10 times that of India and four times that of Switzerland. When confronted with such a large deviation, a scholar would ask, Does America have some potential cause for this that is also off the chart? I doubt that anyone seriously thinks we have 30 times as many crazy people as Britain or Australia. But we do have many, many more guns."

I doubt if anything will be done. The cowboy/frontier mythology is too strong. Kids are raised on video games that reinforce it.
