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.
