That's a very misleading figure. That said there is indeed more gun violence in the US than in Europe, of course. My question is, do gun laws prevent violence, or are there underlying reasons to such violence?
Like mental healthcare, income inequality and lack of access to basic services.
If you compare the US with say, Brazil, large multiethnic nation with a past or slavery and inequality, well, you'll notice that banning guns has no effect. If ou've got a poor, uneducated and very unevenly wealthy population with lots of racial divisions, it doesn't do much, much like Europe didn't really decrease its crime rates after enacting further controls.
I think the focus on guns detracts from fixing the "infrastructure" that allows a nation to be safe in the long term without risking individual rights.>Inb4 commie
