    The World Shootouts. Got a front row seat?


    The World Shootouts. Got a front row seat?
    Annual Gun Kill scores: Chicago 435, New York City 366, Los Angeles 349, Houston 270, Detroit 251, New Orleans 229, Baltimore 193, Phoenix 148, Washington DC 119, Miami 97.


    Or a safe seat?
    Annual Gun Kill scores: Singapore 1, Norway 2, Scotland 5, Israel 6, Japan 7, Denmark 15, Austria 18, Ireland 21, Finland 24, Cuba 27, Greece 29, Australia 30, France 35, Sweden 37, England 39.


    Those who are anti gun control argue 'it's not guns, it's crazies with guns that kill.' Well there are 24,000 people with mental illness in Baltimore and 3,000,000 people with mental illness in Japan. So is it how many crazies, or how many guns you keep out of crazy hands?


    Still hold that it's crazies that kill? OK, then require a psychiatric test for all gun purchases.


    Online gun purchases? Online psychiatrists. Avoiding the test by buying a gun from someone on the street? 10 years hard labor melting guns in a blast furnace for buyer and seller. Gun toters caught without a psychiatric test? 10 years hard labor melting guns in a blast furnace. NRA executive offenders? 5 years hard labor melting guns in a blast furnace. The agony of watching all those guns being melted, sufficient punishment.


    Far-fetched? Not in countries that have learned to value life. Where leaders work together to solve life-threatening critical issues. To purchase a gun in Japan, you must submit to a psychological exam, physical exam, police interviews, stacks of paperwork, 20 hours of lectures, written test, shooting class, criminal background check, show where the firearm will be stored, provide photos of the locks on the gun safe…and wait a year to get approved. Failure to follow gun laws in Japan: up to 10 years in prison.


    Unfortunately, there'll be a lot of lifetimes lost waiting for this to happen in the US. Best get the safest seat you can to watch the Shootouts.
