    'The Simpsons' totally nailed gun control in just 4 stills

    Scientists and public health experts agree. Widespread public availability of firearms is not safe and increase the number of firearms-related incidents that result in unnecessary damage, injuries, and fatalities. According to NYU researcher Sripal Bangalore:

    "The gun ownership rate [is] a strong and independent predictor of firearm-related death … There was a significant correlation between guns per head per country and the rate of firearm-related deaths with Japan being on one end of the spectrum and the U.S. being on the other. This argues against the notion of more guns translating into less crime."

    The World Knows About Sandy Hook. But The Murders In This Neighborhood? Not So Much.

    Even after the tragedy at Sandy Hook, Congress dropped the ball by not passing a bill to help keep guns from falling into the wrong hands. Hell, even the overwhelming majority of NRA members (74%) support no-brainer solutions like comprehensive background checks for the purchase of firearms. Wonder if the political hacks who blocked the bill would see things differently if they lived in places like this.

    Here’s How Much It Costs To Block A Bill That 91% Of Americans Support

    Australia Is An Example Of Effective Gun Control. America Is An Example Of Ignoring Australia.

    The similarities between Australia and America are pretty striking. The enormous difference, however, is the distinct lack of pro-gun special-interest power in the Australian government. If that blows your mind, check this out: Australian gun control was enacted by conservative politicians against the will of their conservative constituency. If Australian politicians can overlook a powerful minority to pass something that a nationwide majority approves of, why can’t our own suits and ties do it too?
