America and their Guns

Being born and raised in the UK, it’s a little strange to see such a different attitude to gun ownership and usage elsewhere across the world, particularly in the USA.

To me, and to many other Britons it seems so ridiculous how a country, claimed to be so great as, America, can’t control and protect their population from gun violence.

Surely just by using the UK as an example, where even most of the police force is unarmed, it can be seen how many lives are being saved by not allowing firearms to be so widely available.

Why is it so difficult for measures to be taken in the USA to simply just have background checks on people who buy guns?

Maybe, I just don’t understand and have misunderstood the great nations Second Amendment.
