I disagree about ‘strict gun control laws’ here having anything to do with it . Either you or I could have a new hunting rifle in a week or two in Canada. If you look at the school shootings or the Vegas massacre these are not people who acquired their guns and went slaughtering. These guns were acquired and the armamentarium prepped and the plans made. Canadian laws would not stop this.
We have a different culture here in Canada. Guns are not toted around in public. Thankfully the 49th parallel prevented the ‘western’ mentality from flourishing on our side of the border. I don’t know why.
The challenge to end ‘their’ problem is that once the bad guys are armed with illegal guns how do you stop the populace from wanting to have legal guns?
Somehow other countries can have legal weapons, such as Swiss adults all keeping their weapons at home after their years of mandatory service, yet they don’t kill each other with them. Somehow a well armed militia there does not lead to violence.
I have lots of questions, but I don’t know the answers.
