No, I think Lethe's right. With less access to guns, there'd be less gun-deaths.
Ummm, I don't think so. Look at the places where citizens can't have guns. There are MORE gun-deaths because people can't defend themselves. I mean, they could if they had proper knife training, but knives are harder than guns. My brother's friend got killed in england 'cuase he didn't have a gun. He was shot. So even though guns are illegal there, the people who SHOULDN'T have a gun have guns. I know that's how it would be if they outlawed guns here.
So, although gun laws should be more strict in the US, where I live they're pretty good. In some places to get a concealed carry permit, all you have to do it show your ID, and that's not how it should be. I think they should do a background test & stuff, and thats what they do where I live.
