The Telephone Call

The Telephone Call
A telephone rings and a man answers, “Hello”.

He hears, “I this 444-444-4444?”

“Yes, it is,” he responds.

“Oh thank God”, says the voice on the other end.

“Could you call 911 for me please? I’ve super glued my finger to the phone.”

How Japan Has Almost Eradicated Gun Crime

How Japan Has Almost
Japan has one of the lowest rates of gun crime in the world. In 2014 there were just six gun deaths, compared to 33,599 in the US. What is the secret?

If you want to buy a gun in Japan you need patience and determination. You have to attend an all-day class, take a written exam and pass a shooting-range test with a mark of at least 95%.

There are also mental health and drugs tests. Your criminal record is checked and police look for links to extremist groups. Then they check your relatives too - and even your work colleagues. And as well as having the power to deny gun licences, police also have sweeping powers to search and seize weapons.
