You have never been to the states. Look at the word UNITED STATES. States. There's more than one, which is why you get varying degrees of state laws or laws that are paying only lip service to federal law.

Each state should be treated as a separate country but the feds have different plans and this hasn't been true since the war of northern aggression/the civil war.

Always with the excuses. You can keep at it or you can realize that you'd have to make one for every first world country in the world.

Oh btw, most of the gun related violence happen in dense populated areas independent of the country and Canadian cities aren't less densely populated than most of the cities the shootings take place.

You can even track your own country's statistics and see that states with higher guns per capita will have more shootings. But don't let any of that logic get in your way, just keep making excuses.

If you ever read anything you'd realize all the states would weaken if they weren't united which is what the fucking united states is all about. Every fucking country has different tiers of government. The US is nothing special in that regard. You think that Canada isn't named the United provinces and territories of Canada that the provinces and territories don't have a lot of local power?
>>
>>52557383
That is because you guys only have a handful of blacks & hispanics. White & Asian Americans have pretty much the same violent crime rates as Canadians. Worldwide ethnicity in general is a much better predictor of crime rates than specific laws, or even income levels.

Fucking ay. Our dollar is worth shit right now that is why everything is so fucking expensive. My friend literally just bought a computer with an i5 4460 + r9 380x for 1250$. He couldn't wait and he's rich so it doesn't matter but still it was pretty fucking ridiculous.

Were going into a recession so everything is really fucked. Not to mention I live in 1 of the most expensive places in the world to live (Vancouver) being poor right now is really really bad.

It was good a couple of years ago when the dollar was even with the US and life was pretty good as everything was the same price pretty much. Now it's gone to shit and our new PM probably won't make it any better either.

Also >muh free healthcare. I once thought it was great when I was young. Now that i'm old i MUCH rather pay for my own healthcare so i don't have to wait in line for hours AND you can get results faster if you pay. Can't do that in canada you have to wait a couple of days. Fucking shits. Although the good thing is big surgeries probably won't cost as much so thats a plus..
>>
>>52557622
>Can't do that in canada you have to wait a couple of days.
You can't buy private cover in Canada? There's a public and private system running side-by-side in Australia. You just buy private cover if you don't want to wait in queues.

Most people in the city don't have firearms, and the same private property laws don't apply in town. You'll only get shot if you pull up on someone way out in the sticks' driveway unannounced, and considering those driveways are usually 1/4 mile or longer, it's your own dumbass fault for trespassing then.

Ungodly debt for injury is true, though.

>>52557411

Private cover doesn't exist because they feel it will make doctors go private thus limiting the small pool. The issue with Canada is residency requirements for new doctors, as well as the number they admit. It is so bad people training to be doctors fuck off and never come back because they weren't able to become an MD here.

Weird, in Australia all doctors are obliged to accept a certain number of public patients, alongside any private ones they might want to see and all or at least almost all GPs are public-only, so that problem is solved.

In my city it is a 12 -16 hour hospital wait and doctors take no new patients. Walk in clinics also don't exist.

Dentists are private as are cosmedic surgeons mind you, also certain specialists like ophthalmologists can make way more than 500k a year easily. Speaking of ophthalmologists when I mentioned the issue with the health system in this country is the lack of open spots for doctors I meant it, only 35 doctors a year can get ophthalmology residency country wide. Hence why no fucking sane med student graduates here, they fuck off to where they can get residency.

Yeah I have no idea why dentists and mental health aren't automatically covered. Dentists in Aus charge an arm and a leg. Private health insurance covers two yearly checkups but god help you if you need anything more than a filling done.
>>
>>52557992
Basic check ups from dentists and optometrists are not fully covered here either. But mental health crap is. Medically necessary procedures are covered though in dental and vision, and the disabled are covered (unless they need glasses and don't want the budget pedo glasses).
>>

There's basically about 13k actual gun violence cases there. There was an estimated total of 14,196 murders in the US, so the gun is the obvious weapon of choice for murder, but also no shit Sherlock.
Do research on total murder rates for anti-gun countries and see how it compares.

Did you even read the article? Guy yelled "Freeze" and he kept walking towards him. Might of been a language barrier, but that's a risk anyone takes when they go to a country where they don't understand the people.

Also, there are people in Japan who will kill you for being the wrong color too.

The crime rates in cities with tighter gun control is usually worse than cities with lax gun control. That shit just doesn't work. The US is full of violent people hence the gun violence. Take away the guns and they'll just rob each other with knives or whatever else instead. It's a red herring.
