In America, we have gun shows. In Germany, they have guns for show.

In the entire year 2011, in the entire country of Germany, police fired just 85 bullets. Most of those were warning shots; 36 were aimed at suspects.

I’ve been unable to find accurate figures for the United States, but the number of people shot and killed by American cops every year is somewhere in the hundreds.

All those Europe-bashing American libertarians who rail against police brutality? They might want to give Europe another look.
