^The next argument iguana, will be that the UK has a higher violent crime rate than the US. But crimes can be recorded differently from country to country, I think in the UK any crime commited agaisnt a person is classed a sa violent crime. I.e if you punch someone causing no serious injury maybe not even a bruise it would be classed as a violent crime.
Both having restrictive and less restrictive gun control have there pros and cons. It's a trade off yes you might suffer a rise in violent crime, but would that be compensated for by a fall in the homicide rate?
Which is more valuable a human life or the right to own a gun?
