What’s always wierd to me is that they corolate guns being owned legally with crime rising. Yet in other countries crime is much higher despite guns being illegal, and crime is higher in countries with legal gun ownership. As far as the intentional homicide rate the US is actually pretty low on the list, unless of course you severly restrict the list to only a handful of countries. Frankly both nonviolent crime, and violent crime have been pretty steadily dropping over the last couple of decades(that includes school shootings), if you want to believe reports from the FBI. Frankly the concept of connecting inanimate objects to the causations of crime is silly. What should be looked into more closely are our mental health laws, and standards of living.
