Smalltalk About Americans, Shootings, And Alcohol

America, at one point in time, tried to ban alcohol. It did not work. Of course it did not work, because the alcohol was already there. People were used to having it around. It was a part of their lives. They knew of it, and therefore the law that prohibited alcoholic beverages was broken.

America has been having quite a few shooting incidents. As examples, we can mention the recent Tucson shooting, or how about the Columbine Massacre? People blame it on the guns. Those who are pro gun control, will say that if guns were not allowed, there would be no shootings. Those who are opposed to gun control, will try to use the arguement I wrote in the previous paragraph. The two first sentences, at least.

Another common arguement would be that, "If guns kill people, then pencils misspell words, cars drive drunk, and spoons make people fat." Well then I have this to offer: get rid of people's arms or hands; problem solved!! Haha. Ok. Back to the point.

In Europe, shootings has never been an issue in the same way, nor banning guns, because we never had the right to bear arms in the first place. If the Americans had not had the right to carry their weapons around with them, no doubt their crime rate involving guns would be much lower. Like in Europe.

But I am not stupid. Of course I know America will never be a gun-free country. Because the weapons are already there. Like the alcohol was when they tried to ban it in the 1920s.

But how about this... If the weapons were never legal, we'd have a completely different story, don't you think? A completely different country, even...
