    In the United States a political party tries to make sure a loaded handgun is available to every man—every hothead, every SOB, every man who beats up women, every fool, and every man out of his mind. Madness.

    In highly developed countries in murder a gun is the most common weapon NOWHERE but the United States.

    On Great Britain and in Germany, murder’s rate is not a fourth of its rate in the United States—NOT because in the United States attacks are four times as frequent but because in the United States SURVIVAL is less common.

    Guns are more deadly than other weapons:

    • “The case-fatality rate for gun robbery is three times as high as for robberies with knives, and ten times as high as for robberies with other weapons” (Cook & Goss, 2014, p. 38).

    • The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reported that in 2015 in attacks persons survived—aggravated assaults—attackers were wielding guns in one of four only (FBI, n.d.a) but in attacks where persons died—murder—SEVEN OF TEN (FBI, n.d.b).

    Where hunters have over a million long guns but hardly anyone a handgun—Great Britain—in homicide and suicide few die from gunshot wounds, in their fiscal year 2015 in murder twenty-one only. In reports of murder by gun to the FBI where police departments include the type of gun, departments are reporting a handgun in NINE OF TEN.
