I can't think of a single life lost by guns during my lifetime in my town, apart from an incident where a policeman was seriously injured by a shotgun when attending a domestic dispute many years ago.
I can think of five murders here in my lifetime, two were a domestic and the other three were saturday night fisty cuffs. I think the one domestic was a guy coming out of prison catching his wife in bed with his brother, I think he slashed him to death with a stanley knife.
I'm glad gun crime is non-existent here.
