I did so, voluntarily, Seyorni.Seyorni said:Well, Michel -- you certainly walked into this one. Predominantly Yanks on this board, and you know how we love our guns..
Seriously, though, and speaking as a non-gun owning, pacific, vegan hippie sort of guy, I have to bow to the statistics. It's not gun ownership, per se which causes problems. It's a cultural thing. Canadians own as many guns, per capita as Americans, but gun violence is nowhere near comparable. And those American jurisdictions that have required residents to possess a firearm have seen a significant decrease in violent crime.
It's all very perplexing....
If I can stop one person in the world from carrying a gun in my life, I will have achieved something great.
