Why does the US have such high gun crime ...... because you can buy a gun from almost anywhere.
Why is it that the UK has never had such an incident like Sandy Hook? Because there are no guns to do it with.
Do you see what I am trying to get at ..... guns are the cause. Why has it become so easy to access firearms in America? The NRA are idiots, trying to take the blame off them and instead put the blame on video games. Really stupid this issue has gotten, we'll have to wait and see if video games are banned next week. Hopefully they are not.
Dunblane. You have no knowledge of what you speak.
Violent crime is pretty much the same in both the US and the UK. The only difference is that in the US it's more often commited with guns, in the UK it's usually a knife or whatever is handy at the time. That is why there are far less people in the UK being killed with guns. We're just murdering each other with knives, batons, bricks, bottles and a myriad of other objects we can get our hands on.
Is violent crime acceptable as long as it's not committed with a gun?
In the slightly edited words of Goldie Lookin Chain, "Guns don't kill people, people do". To blame an inanimate object for the failings of Western Society is bordering on madness. Violent crime is both a societal and a cultural issue, not a gun ownership issue (or anything to do with video games), regardless of what the rhetoric in the media is programming you to believe.
Wake up people, you are being completely deceived.
