  •  What other countries don't have... (0+ / 0-)

    Many other countries don't have our extensive border with Mexico, and the Drug War, and the flood of drugs and guns coming into their countries at the rate they are flooding into ours.

    What other countries do have...

    Many other countries have much stronger social programs, including health care systems, than we do, which helps to divert children into appropriate care BEFORE they start shooting up their schools.

    Many other countries also have different school systems and different school environments from ours.    

    We can talk all day about what other countries do and don't have.  Without a thorough and comprehensive analysis, it's hard to tell what is making the real difference.  

    What I do know is that whatever legislation is passed, there will still be a huge number of guns in this country, and various ways and means for a determined person to get access to them, assault weapons and non-assault-weapons, and from all accounts, our high profile shooters are very determined people.
