To obtain a gun here in much easier to obtain than United States and crime by fireaems are 7 times per capita less . Can anyone explain why?"danish_boy" said:bf4,
Just because high school shootings and snipers are not as common here doesn't mean Argentine society is less violent. Keep in mind that guns are not as easy to get here as they are in the US. So that would explain why there aren't so many shootings. Besides, Argentine students may not carry guns (some DO anyway) but many carry knives instead. Do you remember the teacher that got stabbed by a student a few years ago? Well, there have been MANY similar cases. As for snipers, have you heard about "el tirador de Belgrano"?
Oh speaking of violence, how do you explain all the elders who are brutally beaten to death on a regular basis? If Argentine society were so peaceful, that wouldn't happen, don't you think? But according to you, extreme violence can be found in the US and not in Argentina. Get a grip on reality
