Yeah, the guns were available in the 1950's, and the crime rate was much
lower then. Drugs, drugs, drugs. Those are the culprits. People won't kill
people for food money, but they'll kill in a second for drug money.

"The Second Amendment has never been interpreted
literally to give individuals the unlimited right to possess and use guns."

Britain's violent crime rate is surging, as is Australia's, although the US
violent crime rate is still too much higher than those two countries. I
think it has less to do with the legal availability of firearms and more to
do with culture. Significant percentages of people own firearms in
Switzerland, but they seem very peaceful. Other than terrorism incidents,
the violent crime rate is low in Israel.
More shooting with cameras, please.
