rich people get bored so they murder hobos. haven't you seen american psycho? lol, jk. poor people are much more likely to commit crimes, because they can't afford basics like adequate food, shelter, and amenities
Ummm looting, burning, arson, and beating up random people just for their political beliefs, robbery, hit and run on the road, drunk driving, stealing money from the company they work for, I can go on.
correct! we have a winner! and, if guns are available, those criminals are gonna get guns because they can. having guns in the first place does not CREATE criminals. criminals simply take advantage of the opportunities they have to get guns. the real cause is poverty/classism/discrimination, and lots of that shit could be fixed if governments truly cared, which they don't.
well in the US Statistically the states with the toughest gun laws have the highest gun crime because remember a criminal does not follow the law they don't give a shit how strict the law is they will find a way to get their firearm so it leaves law abiding citizens unable to defend themselves and at the mercy of criminals hence why gun crime is skyrocketing in Chicago and NYC
It is more complex than just the number of guns.
Guns as such neither creates nor prevents crime, however the presence of guns means crimes can get more violent and it also means law enforcement is more likely to shoot and kill.
The presence of guns and even the likely presence of guns escalates situations - it can be the difference of road rages becoming a fist fight and a shoot out.
Another example - cops in most places of the world rarely encounter guns, so this then mean they are much less likely to shoot and if they shoot, they are all trained to shoot to incapacitate rather than to do a take down meant to ensure a suspect can not fire back ie. cops aim at limbs rather than the torso and they do not fire lots of rounds.
