    They need to do what we did and take the guns off the bad guys by way of a gun buy-back scheme.

    Then there'll be no firearms crime like us.

    You have to be either joking or living under a rock if you believe that!

    A very good idea which, in America, hasn't a hope in hell of working because of the powerful gun lobby who, as I understand it, have the voting power in the US Senate and will block any attempt at gun control.

    Besides, where would they get the billions they would need to buy-back all the millions of guns? And don't forget that the American Bill of Rights gives every American the right to bear arms. It's ridiculous!

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    We don't even have that many single shootings, per capita.

    More to the point: How many of any kind of shootings have we had in the past 50 years or so?

    As you should be aware the USA consists of 50 states which are in a large part effectively separate entities that manage their own interests. They are, when you take into account population size as compared to NZ, no worse crime wise than here. The BLM riots and the like that we see on our news are the exception not the norm. Just as we have our share of idiots so do they but it is a big mistake to judge the whole country by the actions of those idiots.
