There are many gun-happy countries that are safer than the United States...such as Canada or Norway.
However, it makes a difference when they are registered and strictly regulated.
If that piece of paper from 1787 is the problem...change it! It was meant to be a living document.
Change it to the 'Privilege to bear arms'.
Again, if we care about the safety of our citizens, let us do the things that make us a safer society and even emulate what safer societies have done to make it so.
Lunch break over.
