American exceptionalism. It’s a thing, right? America is a constitutional democracy. Our foundational document is a laundry list of things the government can’t do (save the directive requiring the President to protect our borders).Yes, we have more guns — and more firearms related injury and death — than other “developed” countries (assuming Mexico isn’t developed). So what? So maybe we should be more like Germany?
That’s what Carl Nasman’s video above suggests. He reckons German gun control is effective! You Tube star Jorge Sprave agrees.
Which is a bit of a change from ye olde “the U.S. should have gun control like the UK.’s” (or Australia’s). I wonder why U.S. gun control advocates don’t point to Germany as a role model for U.S. gun control? Hmmm. Something to do with the Nazis perhaps?
Which begs the quesiton, do we have anything to learn from German gun laws?
