Let's talk about it ! (42)


Let's talk about guns again !

Every now and then, we hear of a shooting in Japan.  Recently the shacho (boss) of a famous Giyoza chain was gunned down in front of his company.  Who killed him, or why ?

The police are now investigating.  This killing is a very rare occurence in Japan.

In my country, the U.S.A., there are more guns (registered and unregistered) than people.  America is a gun culture.  Americans love guns.

In America, guns kill about 40,000 people a year (murders and suicides).  In total though, about 100,000 people a year are shot...           Let's talk about guns !                      (V.C)
