Adam Curry made a telling point on a recent No Agenda podcast with John Dvorak talking about guns in the US, and how some say there is less violence in Britain because they have fewer guns. Curry, who was born in the US and has lived extensively in Europe and Britain says that’s crazy. People in Britain don’t kill with guns but they sure do with fists, knives, and clubs. There’s plenty of violence in Britain. It’s just not with guns.
We have a friend who grew up poor in a rough, rural area. She says they were too poor to own guns so people there would use whatever was handy; axes, shovels. They didn’t need guns to kill.
So, violence isn’t just about guns.
