Do they take printed guns?
The link isn't working.... what happens in the video?
Video got pulled.
Which other countries are you talking about? The US is, to my knowledge, the outlier in gun laws and gun violence. Not the UK or Australia. They basically brought their gun laws into alignment with what is normal in other, low homicide-rate European countries.
Countries like France, Germany and the Scandinavian countries did not greatly strengthen their gun laws. They did not need to, as they were/are already very strict.
The "No-Criming" scandal never applied to homicides, robberies or assaults. It was about rapes, where the victims could be convinced to drop the charge, since the damage was dependent on the victim making the claim and not something indisputable like a dead body. Unless you have any evidence to the contrary?
But your problem is that you’re fixated on guns and have an irrational fear of self defense. Not all gun violence is bad. When it’s used for defense of self and others it is a good thing, a useful item for society.
It is too bad you had to suffer snd witness your dwelling being violated by that burglar. It obviously has you agitated in that your country’s laws offer you little if any justice.
Are you incapable of reading even a simple graph? Okay then, let me break it down for you: from 1970-1995, the homicide rate in the UK increased by an average of 3.5% per year. Every 3-4 years marked a record breaking year with the highest homicide rate ever recorded.
From 1996-2001, the early years of the Dunblaine law, where the amount of legal guns in circulation was reduced drastically and the police drove a massive effort to confiscate illegal guns, the increase in the homicide rate slowed to 2.6% per year.
Then, from 2001-2005, the homicide rate vas more or less level (sans the victims of Dr. Harold Shipman, who were not all killed in 2003, but registered that year due his conviction).
Finally, from 2005 and onwards, the first sustained drop in the homicide rate seen in more than 30 years occured. From 2005-2015, the homicide rate plummeted by around 4% per year and even including the spike in 2017-2020 (a period that includes 97 victims of a stampede at a soccer game, 11 victims of an air crash and 39 migrants found suffocated in a truck in the statistics) crime from 2005-2021 has gone down by an average of 2% per year.
Your problem is that other countries did the same thing without passing nefarious gun laws. Whatever reductions you claim to see(remember violent crime went up so bad that there was an uprising called the “No-Criming” movement for which the Queens Office had to intercede) came at the expense of public safety as regards overall violent crime.
And the US achieved a real reduction in crime LOOSENING its gun control laws.
You can’t escape that.
PS-that “happy time”. 2005-2015, you point to is that of the No-Criming Scandal. Reductions in crime claimed during this period not to be trusted.
