A society with no guns is far better than one with it.
It's a proven fact backed by decades of statistics.
Absolutely. I don't even know anyone who owns a gun apart from my brother who's a member of a pistol club (target shooting). There's the criminal element who acquire them illegally however they are usually in the biz of shooting each other rather than the public at large.
I can't tell you how fantastic it is to be able to walk free and easy wherever I want. The regular shootings that occur in the US horrify Aussies..
