…the Mayor of Nagasaki was shot and killed last night. See? It’s not just in America! Obviously, gun control doesn’t work — especially since in Japan, almost all the gun owners are yakuza:

Organized-crime groups are behind most shootings in Japan, with two-thirds of the country’s 53 known shootings last year being gang-related, according to the National Police Agency.

Further proof that if you make guns illegal, only criminals will have guns. Why, in the US, of our roughly 8,000 gun homicides in 2004…Huh. Actually, over 90% were gang-related, according to the Department of Justice. Even after you include the roughly 600 justifiable homicides, mostly by police.

Hm. Clearly, we need to loosen our gun control laws, to enable more law-abiding citizens to carry guns and shoot people.
