The USA has, and probably more so than any other country, demonstrated the insanity of having such a policy, but since it is so ingrained in their culture, that won't likely change for a century or two if even then. The world would be an even more aggressive and horrible place if other countries followed their erroneous line of reasoning - more guns makes 'us' safer, and it being 'our' right to own whatever.
Statistics indicate that people and their loved ones are more likely to be killed by the very guns they keep in defense.
So why is it that only Americans feel this need to protect themselves from some nebulous threat? Maybe if there were fewer guns around there would be less paranoia.

Q: Why do Europeans, Australians, Chinese, &al not feel this threat from their neighbors?
Government? If the government wanted to get you, your AR-15 wouldn't stop them.
ADL? BLM? How are idealistic advocates of peace, justice and human rights a threat to you?
There is no more need for militias, but this was a case of a lack of foresight by the writers of the Constitution. At that time our army was rather haphazard and for defense militias seemed to be a good idea. And for their to be militias people would need to own and have their own weapons. But now we have more than enough armed forces to defend the country, but as written it is all but impossible to limit the personal ownership and use of weapons in a meaningful way. And with an armed populace of course we will have armed criminals which forces our police force to have even more weapon options. If we had gun control as in Germany or England people could still own their weapons. They just could not keep them in their houses.Even the USA has no use for it, as we have no more militias. The reason for personal gun ownership is for militias, nothing else.
