In the US  over 2 million people are in jail. This is 1 percent of the country.  
( http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/prisons.htm )

In the US there are over 1.5 million people in their military. And their whole economy relies on developing weapons, trafficing drugs, and controlling the oil of other countries. There reserves list is large too and they are called upon regularly these brings the total far over 2 million. This is also 1 percent of the country.
( http://www.house.gov/list/press/ ... lreadiness0913.html )

So every 2 people you meet out of 100 hundred have been in jail or in the military. These people are easy violence after these kinds of experiences(jail/miliary). The US has more guns then people so alot of violent crimes result.

Many are drug criminals.

Many people in jail or prison are there because of drug possession charges.  So not all are violent.  But the wide availability of guns does make America a more violent place.  

However, to disarm the population would be difficult.  The military would need to begin spraying with anthrax and then offering the cure to everyone who brings in all their guns.

Actually many soldiers who return from Iraq were given drugs to relax

I mean you get someone who has probably never killed a chicken before to go to Iraq and start killing people they come back with serious problems and many are suicidal. It is a very sad situation.

Good on you, alwaysfresh, keeping the thread on-topic.

Please ensure you apply these high standards to other threads where the discussion of problems in China is almost always distracted by posts referring to alleged problems in the USA or other western countries.
