I'm European, and as you may already know, it's difficult to get a hold of a firearm in most of the European countries. But we still have a lot of guns: between 30 and 50% own a firearm.
Even though there's many guns, there's relatively few homicides involving guns compared to the US (some facts here: http://www.gunpolicy.org). I picked a handful of European countries at random and gun homicide per 100 000 people in all of them are less than 0.5. USA is around 3.0. You don't have to have a degree in something to see the issue here.
To gain the privilege to own a gun over here, you have to jump through some hoops.
In my country, you either
A: have to be a member of a sports shooting club for some time before applying for a gun owners license
B: take a hunters class which involves multiple courses (which contains wildlife identification and safety, among other things) and a target shooting test before getting a hunters license. After all that you can apply for a gun owner license and buy a gun.
Or C: be in the national guard, where you are assigned a rifle which you can't really use unless the country is being invaded or there's an exercise. No backyard shooting or killing animals allowed.
Also, you have to have an approved locker that's bolted to the floor.
Some people are just sick, and would kill regardless of gun regulations, but by making the people take a mandatory safety class, much can be solved. But one of the problems is that the US constitution is so strong that any legislation or law being passed would be considered infringement. It's sad, because making a few tiny hoops doesn't necessarily infringe on the peoples" right to bear arms" as it's called.
Personally, I've done my compulsory military service and have extensive training with guns and the safety surrounding them, but I don't own a gun. I'm thinking of taking up shooting as a hobby, but owning a gun for protection doesn't really cross my mind at all.
