Guns kill more in U.S.

A June 1 letter by Stanley Carpenter suggests the ghastly murder of a British officer could have been prevented had there been a well-armed citizenry present. I ask if he’s taken the time to compare gun deaths in Great Britain to gun deaths in the United States?

How is it so many Americans fervently advocate a tool made exclusively for killing to be the answer to so many of our problems? Strange that, not only the British, but all advanced countries on this planet look at guns completely differently. No doubt, this is why we Americans kill each other so much more than these other countries.
