Fox News reports that even more restrictive gun laws than the Democrats propose have not stopped mass shootings in Europe.
To give you an idea of just how restrictive those laws are, Poland, a nation of 35 million, has only 22,000 registered guns. Why?
If a Polish citizen wants to own a gun, they must joing a hunt club, which is not in itself an easy process. They must be a member for more than a year before they may apply for a permit to obtain a gun. And they must be recommended by three or more members of their hunt club.
But there is a “back door” way to obtain a permit to purchase. Join a German hunt club. Germany has very similar laws to Poland, and Poland recognizes German hunt club membership and member recommendations toward a Polish permit to purchase.
But as rigid as their gun laws are, mass shootings with illegally possessed guns is common.
So gun control is a failure in Europe, not a success.
