Our country seems to suffer from a big gun control problem. But we’re not the only country that suffers from this. What puts us aside is the scale of our proble
Death by firearms are almost 3 times as much than Finland who comes in second. Americans makes up 5% of the populatin but own 45% of guns in the world.
Evidently, the US has the most guns in the world. Also the most deaths due to these firearms. Over time, the US has had more people die to mass shootings than to WWl and WWll combined.
The US and Switzerland have the same amount of guns in each household. They aren't exactly the same but they have very similar numbers. The problem is the way these organizations, such as the NRA, go about defending these guns. The NRA defends these guns because there is always a risk that the government may turn on civilians. US citizens use guns as tools for defense. The Swiss see these weapons as tools for work because majority of people work in the military. They also shoot guns for sport.
After certain tragedies, Australia and the UK were able to make huge gun changes. The US however cannot make the same changes due to the fact that we have a 2nd Amendment which gives us rights to bear arms. The UK and Australia don't have such laws. Therefore, they can easily get rid of guns.
