The U.K., France and Germany all have far lower murder rates than the US.
Yes but higher than Czechy, Norway and Switzerland where guns are legal. Again, it's how society handles guns. There's plenty of instances where guns are illegal yet there's tons of shootings and conversely where guns are legal yet have very few shootings, Whether guns are legal or illegal makes no difference on the amount of shootings. Mexico has extremely strict gun laws yet there's shootings nonstop. On the other hand, czechy, Canada, Norway, switerland, etc have high rates of gun ownership yet few shootings. A person intent on purchasing a gun whether he's a criminal and needs to protect himself or a crazy loon is going to find a way. Same with people who want to protect their home.
You think a country's leftist gun laws would prevent someone like myself from buying a gun to protect my family from an intruder? Hell no. I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6. I'd much rather get arrested and serve some time for killing an intruder than be caught empty handed when someone breaks into my home, rapes my wife, and takes all my valuables or even kills a family member. All it does is make guns harder to obtain for law abiding citizens who want them for self defense or hunting or whatever. The hypocritical thing is the politicians pushing for stricter gun laws are themselves surrounded by guards with guns and will use them at any sign of danger.
Which is good because guns are dangerous and the vast majority of Poles don't want them on the street.
How do you know? Do you have a reliable sourcing proving your theory? You're wrong - Polish citizens simply don't care. We don't have the ridiculous levels of crime like other countries neither do we have the failed cultural enrichment programs so we don't have much of a need to have guns for self defense. The people that want to legally own a firearm can. They just have to do similar paperwork as they would for a FOID card in the US.
Actually, Poles tend to not have an issue with responsible gun ownership and most Poles in rural areas around guns regularly - usually shotguns and rifles though not so much handguns.
You can purchase bobby guns, stun gernades, mace, crossbows, etc in stores in PL also.
Poles actually don't care much for this argument whether guns should be legal or not because we have a safe country. We don't have nearly the same level of crime as the Islamic republic of france, germanistan, or the united caliphate. We don't have to worry about violent radical muslims like Western Europe.
