Having a population with no guns allows Singapore to continue to be a crony capitalist dictatorship, IIRC.

Having the pleasure to have visited Singapore several times, if its run, as you say by crony capitalist dictatorship, the dictators are doing lot of things right. As far as I know, they have free and honest elections.
Asking a S-Pore friend the difference between USA freedom and Singapore freedom, his response was “theirs was freedom from crime”. Aside from owning a gun or chewing gum, its hard to argue he's wrong.
As pretty, safe, friendly and clean as Singapore is, I'll still take the USA any day, or at least Texas.
