Hello. I am a danish 15-year old kiddo, who have to go to the english exam, the oral one, in two weeks. My subject is about gun-violence, the first part about Virginia Tech, the last part about general gun violence. I have seen Michael Moore’s “Bowling for Columbine” and the way he shows it, America have alot more gun-violence than Canada or any other countries.
It was, as far as I can remember, 12.000 yearly gun-homicides in the States versus fx. 300 kills in Germany. USA has only 3.5 as many people as Germany, but the gun-kill-rate is 40 times as big. How come? Is it the media, that does it?
Is it because the guns are so easy to get (compared to Denmark, there’s no guns at all you can buy and it’s probably hard to get over the borders too, and there’s strict rules about hunting-rifles)? Or how come? Would it ‘stop’ if the NRA got closed? Probably some of you guys living in the States would know better.
Please come with all the input you guys have and keep a civil discussion, so I can get an A+
