Someone earlier in the thread admitted as much. They should all just say this and own up to it.
Who said that? No one.

The point is, we differ on how to reduce violent crime.

The only sure way is to reduce poverty. This is a known fact.

Other methods, such as better mental health guidance may also help

Ending the costly and futile War on drugs would certainly reduce violent crime by a huge amount.

Gun control- might or might not reduce violent crime. So far, in the uSA, it has consistently failed.

So yeah, we all want to reduce violent crime. But I want to do it thru proven methods.

You? You just seem to be scared of guns and are blaming them for all the world's ills.
