Aw shucks, Jethro . . . it’s just a damn gun!

As you know, I live in Japan. Here’s something to think about.


USA . . . 12,996

Japan . . . 506

Gun ownership is strictly regulated in here.

It takes several years even to obtain a hunting license. Meeting someone with any type of gun, even a hunting rifle, is an extreme rarity in Japan.

Do you think the statistics are just a coincidence?

By the way, in 2010 __ the most recent year this statistic was made available __ there were 600 accidental deaths due to firearms in America.

Bang! Bang!
