Lol this is exactly what above comment talks about. You are picking the country that fits that narrative but forget about all of the rest.

Brazil compared to US is so poor and with shitty corrupted police. US police prides itself on being the best most sophisticated in the world i dont se a reason why they would have problems doing same job as police in europe. They would have it in fact much easier.

Also the fact that Brazil has gun problems even when guns are prohibited does not mean that it would be better if they were allowed and everyone would carry one. What is this logic wtf.

A proof by contradiction only requires one single example.

> Brazil compared to US is so poor and with shitty corrupted police

That's true but completely unrelated to gun ownership. The police has to deal with people who don't care about gun ownership laws.

Criminals can be absolutely sure that citizens won't be able to protect themselves.

How about this: Criminals can expect not to be shot when they try to pull something, thus they don't have to shoot first. If the amount of criminals trying to pull something does not go up or down (which I expect but don't know) the whole criminaling might become less deadly.

This doesn't seem to match reality, at least in my country.
