We Americans live in a violent society, one in which there are lots of homicides, family abuse, mass murders of people, and other acts of violence.
We also live in a drug-ridden society. The war on drugs has been an absolute failure when it comes to dissuading Americans from using drugs. The number of people taking illicit drugs has to be inordinately high. Otherwise there would be no reason to continue the drug war. Add to that the countless Americans suffering from alcoholism. And now the feds are cracking down on prescription drug abuse, given the large numbers of Americans moving in that direction.
Statists say that the reason for all the violence is the ease by which Americans can acquire guns. But there is a problem with that reasoning. The Swiss are among the most armed people in the world. If widespread gun ownership is the cause of America's culture of violence, why wouldn't the same thing happen in Switzerland?
