Gun advocates overlook some facts

The NRA and the folks who believe more guns make us safer conveniently overlook the experience of other countries.

In all European countries there are fewer guns and fewer gun deaths per thousand of population. That being so, to say that guns don't kill people, but people do, is like saying we are a more murderous people than other civilized societies. A strange claim for a patriotic organization! How many more schoolchildren and others have to be killed by guns before we wake up?
