Gun Control In Israel (compared with the United States and the rest of the world)

Gun Control in Israel
(Actually, Israel has very tight control as the following PRI radio report makes clear.)


With the exception of South Africa -- and some countries of the former Soviet Union -- the 23 most murderous nations in the world are all Western Hemisphere "Christian" countries. These 23 "Christian" countries average three and a half times as many murders per capita as the "world average."
The per capita murder rate in the United States is twice as high as in Israel.
The twelve countries with the lowest murder rates (except Japan which has the lowest murder rate on earth, accompanied by strict gun laws) are all "Old Europe" nations.

  1. What do we need guns for? When the animals get guns then hunting will become a sport.
