We had a guy in his twenties, out having a new years eve party, caught in crossfire of some local dissagreement...aparently everyone gets their guns out all the time across the same manner as we might give one the finger...they point a gun...anyway, he was killed.

I guess I should scrub that from my holiday list
In the link Flo posted, England is mentioned, as well as Australia and South Africa, all countries with gun bans:

So then we’ve got England, where they reacted swiftly after a mass shooting, banned and confiscated guns, and their violent crime has since skyrocketed. Their stats are far worse than Australia, and they are now one of the more dangerous countries to live in the EU. Once again, cursory Google search will show articles with the stats, and other articles saying that those rises like totally have nothing to do with regular folks no longer being able to defend themselves… Sensing a trend yet?
