The reason I bring up Canada specifically is because I live here and am most familiar with it. But the general statement works with pretty much any country -- we don't have anywhere near the number of mass killings that you do, it it would be nice to figure out why. We also don't have the gun culture you have, and yet despite the right-wing rhetoric, we're not oppressed by our tyrannical government. In fact the Canadian government is far more afraid of the Canadian voter than the US government is of the US voter.

As to your "educated opinion", saying it doesn't make it so. Even just in this thread, the only people who are talking about gun bans are the pro-gun people, and only so they can shoot that straw man.
