I have lived around the world, and been to countless countries. When I see police on the streets of England without wearing a gun I feel very safe. I was in Romania a few months back, guns are near banned there as well. Again a very safe country.
The USA has to start the process to be in line with these safer countries. Death via gunshot in the USA each year is carnage. Enough is enough. The US has to start to be civilized on this point and get into the 21st century.
