THE TRAGEDIES ARE CAUSED BY THIS!!!! We wouldn't even be talking about this if it wasn't for these tragedies. Is the gun argument so weak that it can't deal with the fallout of this?
And yet the solution to all tragedies that happen in 'gun free zones' is to call the 'Good guys' with guns to deal with the bad guys with guns.
Gun regulations didn't stop Lanza, and they will never stop the 'psychos'.
Other than labeling all gun owners as 'mental cases'.
OK, do what then?
Different issue but it's interesting that fetal rights are important to some when the rights of the living don't matter to the same people.
Even with extremely tight gun regulations, Australia continues to suffer mass killings on a similar scale to the US. While a couple were accomplished with guns, several utilized fire and even knives as the method.
People that commit murder obviously have no regard for laws to begin with.
True, but there ARE mental illnesses that predispose people to violence.
