US Gun Laws


guns

By and large I don’t think it is my job to comment on american domestic policy, however it is interesting to look at this table and ask the question ‘Does America need new gun laws?’.  There is an argument, and I don’t know the validity of it, that the American Constitution enshrines the right of all americans to bear arms. The press leads one to conclude that the average americans response, is not to look for better gun laws, but to go and buy more weapons. I am not picking on the people of the United States of America, there are enough people t do that already, but it does seem that something is not working and that something needs to change.

In Australia the buy back does not seem to have fixed everything, however many would argue that it has made a difference, perhaps not enough yet. We need more people who will have a change of heart
