Kerry: Fewer Foreign Students Coming to America Because They’re Scared of Guns

That’s right. In an interview with CNN, Sec. Kerry said that fewer foreign students, particularly from Japan, want to come to America because they’re scared.

He noted Japan’s restrictive gun laws – which prevent private ownership of nearly all firearms, including handguns – and said the country was safer “where people are not running around with guns.”


“…One of the responses I got from our officials from conversations with parents here is that they’re actually scared. They think they’re not safe in the United States and so they don’t come,” Kerry said.
