    isn't really a valid comparison, because the socioeconomic conditions are so different. If you look at how the crime rates have changed in European countries before and after they've enacted laws such as pistol bans, it's hard to say the laws changed anything at all. IMO the problem isn't that people in the US can own guns, it's that there are too many people in the US who want to kill people. And if they can get heroin, they can get a gun, regardless of the laws.

    I also have to point out that your statement about machine guns and gun shows is incorrect.
