    All I ask is that they have the ability to control them. Stop having American guns in Japan. No guns here, please.
    Intersting is that your suicide rate is roughly three times ours without guns

    Americans can shoot themselves to death if they want. Japan will enjoy a murder rate that's.. what? 50 times smaller. And that's ONLY when Japan includes attempted murders as homicides.
    The true Japanese murder rate is unknown. When someone kills another and then commits suicide then both deaths are listed as suicide. Many of your suicides are actually murders.

    And even banning guns completely would not stop crime. People will simply find other weapons to use.

    And a good gun can last 100 years or more if you take good care of it. Just stopping production of them now would still leave quite a few guns out there.

    Furthermore, it's not that hard to take a crude explosive and put it in a metal tube that's open on one end and fill the thing with shrapnel . . .

    Real popular fantasy is religion. It is a best seller, with people who realy believe in the stuff; that's how good it is.
