That's your criteria then. I disagree because I think history, culture, and economics play greater roles in shaping a society. Canada is far closer to England culturally due to history and language than it is to Russia culturally despite climate, geographic size, and population density those two countries have.
I never said totally capable. I stated it would still have issues. If you can buy rifles, shotguns, and pistols, just not military grade weapons and that means reduce gun deaths and mass shooting deaths by it is worth it to try. I don't look at problems with a defeatist attitude that we cannot do address them, such a mindset means why bother attempting anything if failure is a possibility.
Sure USA and Canada are more similar to UK from these points than to Brazil and Russia. Still USA is heavily gun lovers while UK is almost gun free, so for parallels on that I don't see much value.
With 2 pistols it's quite easy and fast to kill 15 people in a single class room if the person doesn't totally suck at shooting, so I don't see how much better you would have the situation by banning assault rifles.
1- Why are you bringing up private healthcare?
US pays twice as much as Brazil does, compared to GDP.
There's also things like unmanned drones, and plenty of other things. The military spends $12 million on a drone, so no those aren't things citizens can get easily.
1- The other person brought that USA private healthcare is to much expensive against Brazil that is cheap.
US may pay twice as much. But that can be put as USA having more access to it. Can you say that a single appointment in USA cost half your minimum monthly wage (960USD), and that the healthcare plan cost 1/3 of minimum wage (8k) for young adults and 4 times the minimum wage (100k) for seniors?
Because that would put it sizable expensiveness compared to Brazil.
2- I didn't say it is easy, and every single technology starts expensive and them get to mass market low prices. Still citizen can make armed drones.
