for every gun death in the UK there are 13 deaths in Switzerland.
So if the UK had more access to guns, it would be higher IMO. I'm glad there was a handgun ban, but really feel for the regular folk enjoying a hobby, and those with collections that were taken away.Great stat! What about this one .... for every gun death in the UK there are 13 deaths in Switzerland.
Oh, and 53 in the States.
I don't really think the lack of full auto helps, soldiers rarely use that mode except when you're jumping into an enemy trench. You mostly miss, it burns through ammo and is more likely to cause a stoppage - I wonder if having this mode availabe could actually reduce casualties.

Yes it is nonsense, Standard Fat Joe has ZERO chance a government ZERO... Hence nonsense, opinion doesnt even come into it.
Lets forget about guns for the moment.... Does the average Joe have suitable supply lines
The resistance in Vietnam and Afghanistan was led by trained militia groups and soldiers—most of them professional—well equipped with a modern arsenal provided by friendly nations.
They were fighting opponents who were not committed to total war, and who never committed more than a token force to the battlefield. They never faced a full scale conventional army at full strength. IIRC, America's combat strength in Vietnam never exceeded 60,000, and those troops were spread across the entire country.
There has never been a single case of American citizens taking up arms against their own government and successfully defeating the US military. It is literally impossible, they would be obliterated in minutes.
A US non-profit group, the Gun Violence Archive, defines mass shootings as those in which four people or more were wounded or killed.
The organisation has recorded 215 such shootings so far this year to the middle of May, including nine in which more than four people were killed.
