Hehe, ignoring facts doesn't make them go away. I'm too lazy to summarize it for you, but please take a look at this:

Death and guns in the USA - CNN.com

Take a look at the charts. Heed the number of deaths PER YEAR caused by gun violence, as well as the mass shootings that have occurred in the US compared to other countries.

To put things into perspective, Canada had 131 firearm-related homicides in 2013. In that same year, the US had 33,636. Granted, the US has like 10x the population; but even if you controlled for that, the number of deaths caused by firearms in the US is disproportionately high.

They've got a serious cultural issue down there. Especially with their Second Amendment and shit

You can't say that gun control wouldn't do them any good

This is not a mental health issue it is a gun issue plan and simple. Every single illegal gun was legal at some point.

Just look at this. 11 year olds should not have access to guns and the parents should be held responsible but they won't be.
