From the article

“Switzerland is one of the world’s richest countries, but has remained relatively isolated.

It has none of the social problems associated with gun crime seen in other industrialised countries like drugs or urban deprivation. “

US Statistics: 31,000 gun deaths in a year. 18,000 of that is suicides. 80 % of all other gun deaths are gang related.

The real problem with guns in America is gun possessors who are also gang members/drug users/sellers. Rather than disarm ALL Americans, we should consider disarming all gang members. But since this is tantamount to disarming minorities, it will never even be vocalized.

Yes and while we’re at it why don’t we pull the fangs of all the pit vipers in the country? One seems about as likely as the other.
