Law & Crime 10


Does Japan live up to its reputation as a safe country?



 Although there are a lot of crimes in Japan, comparing Japan to other countries, Japan does live up to its reputation as a safe country for the following two reasons.
 The first reason is that the private ownership of guns is banned in Japan. Research has always shown that the easy availability of guns leads to many crimes. There is an uncountable number of crimes that are associated with guns and most importantly, gun crimes are often much more serious than a misdemeanor. Therefore it can be said that Japan has lower serious crime rates than other countries thanks to the prohibition of private ownership of guns.
 The second reason is that Japan renounces war. Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution that renounces war and the use of force as means of settling international disputes makes Japan a safer country because countries which are in war are far more dangerous than Japan. Terrorism like suicide bombing happens every day in those countries. Taking this fact into consideration, Japan is definitely a safer country.
 As I mentioned, for the aforementioned two reasons, Japan does live up to its reputation as a safe country.
