We also had a massive school shooting, here in the UK.
The Dunblane massacre.
read how quickly handguns were made illegal to possess for individuals and in all fairness, we haven't had a mass shooting in a school ever since.
Nor has anyone suffered much not being allowed a handgun.
Now, every coin has two sides.
There are plenty of school massacres in China, a lot of them not involving guns:
Showing that if you make guns unobtainable, there are other ways to kill sitting targets.
As shown here:
Not only did he use a self made flame thrower but to completely confuse those that blame anti depressants and say these things only happened in the
last 30 years; this happened in 1964!
To be honest, I don't think any gun laws [for or against] is going to stop these things from happening.
If you outlaw guns in a country all law abiding people who need them for protection are shafted whilst gangsters have no shortage.
On the other hand it does make obtaining guns a lot more difficult for a screwed up 'law abiding' citizen going mental. But as I have shown above,
there are many other ways to kill helpless innocents.
I have lived in 3 European countries for many years [Germany, France, UK] adn had time to see how their gun regulations work.
In Germany you are allowed a gun but we have very strict restrictions:
That hasn't stopped gun crimes though, which still happen.
In the UK, guns are outlawed and the crims know this. Burglaries, especially in rural areas by a certain 'travelling' kind of people are ripe. However
one [hero] farmer shot the bastards after being burgled several times.
He has single handedly stopped a crime wave thanks to his rifle [or whatever he used].
I think that guns in countries that had them forever should be regulated but allowed and in countries with no guns, it should stay that way.
However in both circumstances there must be zero tolerance.
Catching someone with an illegal gun should carry a maximum sentence.
As for school massacres, kids need to be taught how to deal with difficult situations instead of telling them difficulties don't exist and they have
some sort of 'right' or 'privilege' never to be upset about stuff.
The world is a dangerous place and we are rearing kids that can't cope with 'bad things' because they are so entitled to constant happiness and
respect for no reason.
