    If you're not doing a net benefit analysis then you aren't demonstrating anything meaningful about the social impact of guns.

    Cars are dangerous too, we could massively decrease the death rate in car accidents by banning them. That doesn't mean we should.

    Americans not going to be any more successful about stopping guns coming into their country than they are at stopping cocaine or alcohol with prohibition. When you take their guns away the stats show that the violent criminals win.

    If you want to reduce their demand for guns you need to give them love, not rules.

    It's not nonsense, it's obvious. If having guns in US society prevents more deaths than they cause, thats very relevant

    Porsches aren't banned despite there being an obvious correlation between speed at impact and fatality rate.

    Have you ever heard of The Avielle Foundation?
    No. But that's the kind of thing needed, not new laws door-kicking swat teams

    The US military has a lot of rednecks with gun-owning civilian immediate family in it. If they struggle in Vietnam or Afghanistan, you can bet your life they'd have a harder time on home soil when half the soldiers were revolting against orders they thought were unconstitutional.
