2. I think it is your blind spot, not Bernie's. Gun violence is a function of poverty...

Not the other way around.

I have been to Norway. It was immaculate. Lot's of alcohol. Lot's of partying. People walking around the streets in Bergen and Oslo way late past midnight. You could legally camp almost anywhere. All kinds of people mingling. I never felt unsafe even when I slept in parks and camped in the woods outide Bergen.

Yet gun ownership in Norway is widespread, semi-automatics are legal, and gun violence is not a massive chronic issue there like here.

What's the difference?

Poverty, depair, and lack of education.

Dantex, as usual, you have it backwards.
