See the statistic at the bottom of the page………….
The United States 4.2
ALL the countries above America have 100% gun bans
Conclusion: If there was a gun ban in 1776, we would not be the United States of America. If you ban guns now only the criminals would have them and it is much easier to fish in a barrel. Just calling it like I see it. Any thoughts reply below.
The right to keep and bear arms (often referred as the right to bear arms or to have arms) is the people’s right to have their own arms for their defense as described in the philosophical and political writings of Aristotle, Cicero, John Locke, Machiavelli, the English Whigs and others. In countries with an English common law tradition, a long standing common law right to keep and bear arms has long been recognized, as pre-existing in common law, prior even to the existence of national constitutions. In the United States, the right to keep and bear arms is also an enumerated right specifically protected by the US Constitution such that people have a personal right to own arms for individual use, and a collective right to bear arms in a militia.
The phrase “right of the people to keep and bear arms” was first used in the text of the United States Bill of Rights (coming into law as the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States), although similar legal wording can be found in the English Bill of Rights 1689 which states “Subjects which are Protestants may have Arms for their Defence”. Beyond the United States of America, and especially in countries without a common law tradition, the general concept of a right to bear arms varies widely by country, state or jurisdiction ranging from being recognized to being non-existent. In addition, even within jurisdictions which long had a common law tradition, but no constitution, Parliamentary supremacy has also largely removed the historical English common law people’s right to arms since the early 20th Century, such as in the United Kingdom (in 1903), Canada, and Australia. However, in countries such as the United States, with a common law tradition, and with a constitution dating to the 18th Century in place of a Parliament, the “right to keep and bear arms” continues to exist. Specifically, following the American Revolution in 1776, one of the first legislative acts undertaken by each of the newly independent states was to adopt a “reception statute” that gave legal effect to the existing body of English common law to the extent that American legislation or the Constitution had not explicitly rejected English law. British traditions such as the monarchy were rejected by the U.S. Constitution, but many English common law traditions such as the right to keep and bear arms, habeas corpus, jury trials, and various other civil liberties were adopted in the United States. Significant elements of English common law prior to 1776 still remain in effect in many jurisdictions in the United States, because they have never been rejected by American courts or legislatures.Approximately one third of the world’s population (approximately 2.3 billion people) live in common law jurisdictions or in systems mixed with civil law.
