Japan has one of the lowest gun homicides rates in the developed world and one of the most restrictive gun bans. Other countries have similar laws and rates. Countries without gun restrictions and bans (the US, Columbia, Brazil) seem to have much higher rates of gun violence.

ThunderChunky's blanket statement appears to fly in the face of logic and the facts. I merely ask him to please provide this "proof" that the 2 are not connected.

My question is not whether Americans would support a Japanese-style gun ban (which is another question entirely), but rather to provide the evidence the Japanese style gun ban does not work.
