hand guns and carrying arms in public is illegal here in the UK, heck even carrying a knife in public is illegal.
We have relativly few shootings and when we do they hit national headlines.
I have never ever feared walking down the street, going to the movies, sitting in the park, getting completly blotto in the pub and then walking home with equaly tipsy friends.
We do have knife crime and it is a problem, however you have a much higher chance of sustaining a non lethal wound from a knife then you have from a bullet, Also killing rampages are not of the same scale and you get one maybe 2 people injured rather than the entire contents of the cinema.
Personaly I see it is an endemic problem in countries where guns are legal. you've got very little chance of solving the problem unfortunatly, from what i've seen your average american doesnt want to get rid of thier guns because the criminals have them, however the general public having guns makes it incredibly easy for criminals to get thier hands on it, catch 22 situation.
