Subject: RE: BS: Crime in Canada, England and Oz
Well, I see two sides to the 'gun' issue. In my mind, the proper dispensers of justice are the courts, not individuals in society. Problem with that is when people are threatened 'right now', the courts are a long way off. When society can't protect its members, the members tend to do it for themselves. That's when things get messy. Registered firearms are seldom used in crimes IMO because they are fairly easy to trace. But therein is the problem. It tells people who may want to collect registered guns just where they are. heckuva problem, and one for which I have no solution.
