You'll have to be more specific. If we're talking about countries, many of them have long histories of corruption that encourage under-the-table proliferation of weaponry, such as Mexico, who gets the vast majority of their weaponry from the US. That is just consequential to corruption in general, as I would sincerely doubt the cartels would have much issue with steamrolling locals that don't do as they say. Same in Africa and the Middle East.

Once more, it's largely an issue that you have governments that are corrupt or entirely unstable to begin with, and the fact they happen to have laws that technically ban guns means little when they are never enforced.

Yeah, just try not to post two posts in a row. There is an edit button for that use.

Yeah, I was going to do that before, but it seemed odd. Sounds good for the future tho.

Holy crap, this poll has spurred quite the discussion.

Union of Saint Lyon wrote:The places with the highest firearm homicide rates are ironically where firearm ownership is illegal.

That is just simply, as some may put it, not true, if applied to domestic homicide by firearm rate in the United States. State-level firearm ownership is uniquely associated with domestic firearm homicide rates, where states in the top quartile of firearm ownership had a 64.6% higher incidence rate of domestic firearm homicide than states in the lowest quartile. Non-domestic homicide had no significant correlation to gun ownership rates.

Not only that, among female victims each 1% increase in firearm ownership was associated with a 1.4% increased incidence of firearm homicide victimization by an intimate partner, and a 2.1% increased incidence of firearm homicide victimization by another family member (Males, 1.2% and 1.7%).

But I'm going to stay out of this argument.

It is inevitable that criminals would find some way to get guns (such as the cartels of the South and Central Americas), but criminals are far less likely to attempt crime (especially homicide), when they know the target likely also has a firearm readily available.

I did misspeak earlier. The homicide rates are almost the same compared between countries, regardless of the legality or control of firearms. This being said, it is actually the overall crime rate that is far lower in countries were gun ownership is legal and widespread.

Yes, welcome! Be looking out for a WA campaign from me, all of you newcomers!

Should I continue the World Census Spotlight?

Supero Omnia wrote:Should I continue the World Census Spotlight?

YES, I love it.

So, any interest in a world war I roleplay? Not for the regional canon, but a roleplay to be used just to promote participation in RP's? It would basically be a WW1 centric roleplay with players roleplaying as specific nations involved in the war. To keep as close to realism, technology would have to be kept the same as in RL.

Anyone interested? I came up with the idea to solve the issue of there being so little roleplaying.
