    Small wonder the approval rating for Donald Trump is only 9% in Japan!

    He lacks all three traits!

    so this thread is really not about gun control? It's a bait to show how much you hate Trump, again? We get it already.

    It is about gun control, you just happened to walk yourself into that Trump comment.

    And it's about how other countries accomplish gun control so easily with the application of common sense.

    Meanwhile right-wingers who love to beat their chests about AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM love to tell us all the things America CAN'T do. Curious how nothing can be done anymore! It's a miracle we ever built the Hoover Dam.

    Oh, except that every modern country on earth has managed gun control quite successfully.

    Big difference between refugees and gang members. But they need to raise the wages a bit.
    I admire china because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime.

    and unfortunately, you missed the common sense part by listening to an anti-gun article . America is not Japan. Just like it's not Denmark or Sweden. What other countries wont apply here. there in no cookie cutter for ALL NATIONS of the world . This is why I say screw one world order.

    Because common sense states IT CANT BE DONE in US society. . and since you insist on patisanshipship, let's start by left wingers wanting to release criminals .Here in NY the bail reform is a mess and it's failing
    You lefties also want to legalize drugs. How do you think that is going to affect mental issues in the streets and society.
    You lefties even want to cuddle illegal alien criminals with your sanctuary cities.

    Now liberals want to further cause mental issues by confusing kids with gender confusion.

    Yeah, lets legalize drugs, release criminals and the ban guns. NO THANKS . We'll buy more guns and more ammo thank you the left wanting to create chaos.

    Japan practices capital punishment and still HANGS people for certain crimes . So does Singapore which has practically has no crime . They hang you if you if you are found with a certain amount of drugs. Are you willing for harsh criminal punishment? I am guessing you lefties will say no.

    You mentioned three fantastic traits the Japanese value. Noting to myself that Trump lacks all three traits, I posted it for no other reason than it's amusing.

    The fact that you seem highly agitated only reinforces my obvious good taste in casually mentioning it

    America is not Japan. Congratulations, you can read a map.

    And guess what? England isn't France. Germany isn't Japan. Italy isn't Iceland. Sweden isn't New Zealand. Canada isn't Australia.

    All these countries are different from one another as well and yet they all found ways to make gun control work within the parameters of their own unique circumstances.

    There's nothing about America that makes this impossible.

    Now you're just all over the place. If you could calm down and focus your thoughts, this might go better for you.

    I don't know what meds you're on, but you may want to increase the dosage.

    Huh?

    I'm praising Japan's efforts at gun control. WTF does your weird diatribe about their system of capital punishment have to do with anything?

    What total bull****.

    Japan is not the only country that has the same effect...in countries where guns are restricted, there is lower incidence of violence and death. The more the restrictions to access, the more the effect.

    not my problem that you think there is a cookie cutter for everything even though the make up of the countries are entirely different?

    I just listed 10 individual nations, each culturally unique from one another, that have their own variations of gun control that work within their own legal and social circumstances. None are the same yet all are effective.

    That's the exact opposite of cookie cutter.

    It's awesome.

    These forums are interesting because they give you insight into how people think. Or in some cases, what passes for thinking.

    Specious reasoning is always a right-wing greatest hit.

    You are right in that the underlying social and mental health issues that lead to violence will still exist even if all the guns just disappeared tomorrow. But two things:

    1. Social and mental health issues take many years to fix. We should be working on them but there is no magic solution that will solve it right away. In the meantime, limiting access to the most deadly weapons is a part of a solution to the gun violence that can be implemented relatively easily and quickly.

    2. If someone goes psycho, I'd much rather have it be with a knife or even a shotgun than an AR-15 or something similar. IIRC, the Parkland ******* killed 14 people and wounded 17 more in just over a minute. That's impossible with a knife or a shotgun.

    exactly, which is why I am saying what works for Japan doesnt mean it will work here which falls to my point that you cant compare the 2.

    I agree that there has to be better gun laws but my point stands, cannot compare Japan to the US . Culture alone is different. Our way of thinking if different. Everything Japan does is for the good of Japan. For the good of the group .

    Here alone the democrats are already going after each other. Change our way of thinking first and then we'll talk about everything else.
