    Prior to going to UK last July 2018 I recalled reading a page about gun ban and crime rates. Had to research to find it and of coarse it is only a stat page so may not bare full weight factually. Had an amazing time there BTW. Only odd moment was at speakers corner while I was photographing a little brawl broke out. Stayed near BaysWater tube station arcoss from Hyde Park.

    Right, and why do you think there is such a huge difference between those two examples? Enforcement? Different socioeconomic and cultural norms? Education standards? Social nets/programs? Government corruption and competence?

    Just FYI I'm not for banning firearms in the US. I don't thin gun ownership is the real issue. Remove every gun from the problem areas and they will still be problem areas.

    You mean you actually trust your justice system?
