Kids don't shoot eachother in schools here, thank you very much.
jk, kind off.
But seriously I don't think it would work without tight and supervised gun flow, so it wouldn't end up on the streets like in US. Now I can be affraid of punch in the face, and not of being shot 6 times for equivalent of 10 bucks, or because cops are paranoid and trigger happy.
Also I don't think all countries are ready for free access to guns. You got decades and decades of experiences with weapons, but here people would lost their shit, believe me.
Don't get me wrong I support access to guns, but there are many concerns. It's very complex issue.
Although pepper spray and stuff like that are always a good idea.
It IS on government. You took so many responsibilities off the gov and now you are surprised it spends your money on weird shit. You are surprised both parties are disconnected from you.
There is no money for health care, wellfares, social issues. First/second economy in the world my ass.
Your gov basically tells you every man for himself but it isn't how it should work.
