How Australia and Other Developed Nations Have Put An End To Gun Violence

I wouldn’t say we’ve “put an end to” gun violence in Canada but our numbers (like those in most developed nations) are extremely low compared to the US.

There are a whole host of interconnected reasons why this is the case.  But I think one of the largest is the fact that gun ownership is enshrined in the US Constitution.  That makes it extremely difficult for their society, even anti-gun activists, to change a deeply held belief, even though the rule was written 300 years ago in a time of muskets and meant to defend against an enemy that was an ocean by sailing ship away.

The regularity of deadly mass shootings in the US has become the darkest form of satire.

But something’s got to give someday
