There is a life-and-death difference between our gun-crazed country and countries that strictly regulate access to firearms. For instance, on Dec. 8, 1980, former Beatle John Lennon was shot six times in his back by a deranged fan outside his apartment building in New York City. On Dec. 31, 1999, John’s ex-bandmate George Harrison was stabbed in the chest by an insane intruder in his Oxfordshire, England, mansion. George survived his attack. John did not.
