And you dont think he could have obtained a weapon in other ways? Yes, understandable its easier, but consider this. 2 people. 1 criminal, 1 law abiding citizen.
Example A: If guns are controlled, which im all for. the 2 stand on even ground.
Example B: Guns completely outlawed. The law abiding citizen can not and will not have a gun. On the other hand, do you think this will actually stop the criminal from obtaining a gun? Yes, in some cases it will but in those cases where the person is determined to kill, he/she will obtain a gun in other ways. Guns are outlawed in Russia where I’m from… now go look at how much gun crime there is there. Just look at the dash cam videos… a bunch of them where someone draws a gun on someone else. The key facts are: • The US has the highest gun ownership rate in the world - an average of 88 per 100 people. That puts it first in the world for gun ownership - and even the number two country, Yemen, has significantly fewer - 54.8 per 100 people
• But the US does not have the worst firearm murder rate - that prize belongs to Honduras, El Salvador and Jamaica. In fact, the US is number 28, with a rate of 2.97 per 100,000 people
• Puerto Rico tops the world’s table for firearms murders as a percentage of all homicides - 94.8%. It’s followed by Sierra Leone in Africa and Saint Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean
