Toby Ziegler on US gun control, from The West Wing, Season 2:13 “Bartlet’s Third State of the Union”.

Transcript of important parts:

Toby Ziegler: If you combine the populations of Great Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark and Australia, you’ll get a population roughly the size of the United States. We had 32,000 gun deaths last year, they had 112. Do you think it’s because Americans are more homicidal by nature? Or do you think it’s because those guys have gun control laws?
