Showing skyscrapers doesn't really prove anything.

Tokyo chaos | YOU’RE RIGHT, A STREET SCENE WOULD BE MORE COMPARABLE DISPATCHES FROM THE MEAN STREETS OF TOKYO | image tagged in tokyo chaos | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
You’re right and I’m also sure there’s some way to explain this away

My brother lived in Tokyo for a number of years, and while it is true the private ownership of hand guns is prohibited, you may purchase air rifles and shot guns. Many citizens do still purchase hand guns from dealers from South Korea. Likewise, gun violence between the various gangs (such as the Yakuza) still occurs, one reason otherwise law-abiding citizens seek out S. Korean dealers in order to have pistols at home in which to protect their families.

I could show you a view of my hometown and it's peaceful streets as well. And we have open carry. It isn't uncommon to see someone with a pistol on their hip.

Good for you. I live in a city where folks get shot nearly every damn day

Poverty, social isolation and despair, the war on drugs, plus 393+ million privately owned firearms in this country, translates into a lot of homicides and suicides

It’s not just guns. But if we’re serious about this then we should tackle all of the above including guns

Now: To have a city of 9+ million (Tokyo), heck a country of 125+ million (Japan), that has virtually no gun deaths is remarkable — I wonder how they achieved it?

Maybe we should study what the heck they did

So you'd fight a war without guns, huh?

South Korea is armed to the teeth and ready for war with the North at any point, but they still control civilian guns and have virtually zero gun deaths per year

An even more striking example of the effectiveness of gun control than Japan

We just don’t face any threat remotely comparable to that from the likes of Canada, Mexico, or anyone else

You're not understanding what the second amendment was put into place for. That's obvious.

Your picture of a gun free society is a bunch of buildings. I guess there are no people in such a society.

I lived in Japan for about one year. That is a very regimented society with strict laws regarding crime, drugs, immigration and other regulation. If you believe you can get the USA to change that much, my hat is off to you.

It would require a total transformation on many issues, not just guns. But if other first-world countries (not just Japan) have shown it’s possible, then it’s reckless not to try.

I have never been all that convinced to turn a blind eye to tens of thousands of needless deaths and maimings per year as the cost of freedom

why the scumbag hat?

I believe one of the reasons criminals in the U.S. often resort to gun violence is the lax penalties routinely given the convicted (whatever their crime). The Japanese judicial system is not hampered by liberal bleeding heart lawmakers. If our judicial system was like this, it is very possible criminals would think twice before behaving like savages.
