How many times have you seen the claim that America has more guns (and fewer anti-gun “laws”) than other civilized societies in “the West”?
It’s a nonsense claim.
Countries with anti-gun “laws” are not civilized. They may be domesticated, or not. But “civilized“? No way!
One non-negotiable mark of a civilized society is that it doesn’t interfere with the liberty or rights of those inside it. Anti-gun “laws” do interfere. They treat the residents as bad, stupid, helpless children.
All else being equal, the more anti-gun “laws”, the less civilized a society. No matter the claims made about it by its fans.
