    Also having lived in Japan. People there are pretty emasculated. If a thief breaks into your house, you pretend to be asleep. As you really can't defend yourself either.
    With going into the neighborhood of gun owners. That too is VERY Japanese, as everyone is up in your business.

    Another aspect, if your parents were ever sent to prison, people will treat you as a criminal as well. Which makes criminal offenses somewhat inheritable socially.

    On the up side for Japan. Japan is an island nation with few immigrants, and tight border control. With a whole lot of old people,a nd few young people(ie fewer demographics who are likely to commit crimes.)

    Thought it would be good for some lighthearted mayberry discussion.

    You can tell how badass the Japanese cops are by their mascots;

    i thought Japanese police were notorious for not pursuing cases in order to keep crime "statistics" low

    You can also buy soiled school girl panties out of vending machines in Japan. Who gives a fuck about Japan and how they handle guns.

    Japan is not by any means the only country with really strict gun laws. Switzerland, Germany, Sweden and several others have really strict gun laws where you similarly have to pass physical and mental evaluations, gun safety and maintenance exams, have a legitimate reason for even wanting a gun, and have a gun locker just to get your permit and breaking those laws gets you REALLY stiff punishments. Not perfect, but those measures have done a LOT to curb gun violence in those countries.

    Again, 200 million privately owned guns in the US. Good luck.

    That's the glue that holds Japan together.

    Which is why when i taught there, it wasn't unusual for 5th graders to have gray hair

    However, this is in no way translatable to solving the problems in the US.
