Because you're full of #?
The US has 4x the murder rate of Ireland, for instance.
AS for Canada, Canada has a huge number of guns and still has plenty of rape... so... maybe Americans just like murder and Canadians are just into rape... both have a huge number of guns and both have crime... because, guess what, guns don't stop crime.

where kids killing kids in schools is becoming the norm,
I mean seriously, what have you lot created ?
You all fear the boogie man and hide behind your guns for safety, yet you're just creating a very dangerous society!
Pro gun Americans sound like paranoid psychopaths..........Someone Willing to shoot anyone that may cross them is a psychopath!
Guns create paranoia imo
btw I have never feared for my life, I've never feared my kids would get shot at school by a psychopath, No one threatens me, I don't own a gun.....and If you think this makes me a coward , I say try me!
I have defended my family on more than one occassion resulting onetime in the the guy spending 7 days in hospital nursing broken bones after he assaulted my wife and I kicked ten bags of # out of him!
What would you of done?...Shot the moron or done what I did?
No wonder Americas prisons are bursting!...As most of you would of shot him as you are all so god damn Hard!!!!edit on 4-4-2012 by zerozero00 because: (no reason given)

In the late 70's, I used to pedal over to the local shooting range on my bike, at the age of about 14, with my 12 gauge shotgun on the back of my bike.
We used to shoot trap (clay targets thrown in an away direction in a long arc).
One of the adults, old guy, Lloyd, used to bring reloaded shells for us to buy and use. He packaged them in an old reused bread bag. Sometimes he would miss a step reloading them and leave out the powder. So only the primer would fire and the wad would get stuck in the barrel. Sometimes he would forget and put in powder twice, break your shoulder... We called them "Lloyd loads".
I think, the problem is kids do not grow up with enough exposure to firearms anymore. They need to be taught gun safety and taught to safely use them. My Dad would have kicked my ass had I ever broken the cardinal rule which is
NEVER POINT A GUN AT ANYTHING YOU DO NOT INTEND TO SHOOT.
Kids now get a gun, with little or no training, from someone on the street (not from Dad or Grampa).
We need more guns and more training so that the kids are comfortable and competent with them, not less.

This kind of thinking is why history often does repeat itself.
Who needs experience or history when the human ego is omniscient?
