Now I'm really starting to wonder if there is an agenda to do away with guns completely in the U.S.

It seems we can't go a whole week anymore without having this happen.

Why is it that suburban shootings seem to get far more attention than urban ones?

Some loser upset his woman dumped him or he lost his awesome grocery bagging job goes and shoots a couple of people in a fit of idiot rage and it's plastered all over the news.

At the same time a few blocks away some 15 year old wannabe gangsters get into a shootout with some other kids killing a half dozen and it's just dismissed. Unless of course a poor bystander gets hit then it pops up to top story for at least a little while.

Is it the same phenomenon that gets all the little missing white girls TV time while all the missing black kids go ignored?

Your all going to get your guns taken away


They are even reporting these shootings in the UK now.

They do not want you all running around with guns when the economic collapse happens.

Its hard enough trying to control people with sticks and petrol bombs let alone AK-47s


Just saying !

That is so sad
. I personally don't think that banishing the sales of fire arms will do much good. People these days will find one on the black market if its in their agenda ... So sad

Exactly! Banning firearms would end up just like the war on drugs (lost before it even begin.)

The bad guys will find their guns no matter what and the rest of us will be left defenseless against them.

It's not just Americans. They're impossible to take away from anyone.

Even in the glorious gun-free utopia of the United Kingdom guns are plentiful on the streets. It only seemed that their ridiculous laws were working because there was no demand. Once demand kicks in all bets are off and laws are void.

3.000 Stolen Guns in the UK / Massive importation of illegal arms from Eastern Europe / Guns, cheap and plentiful on UK streets

Demand in the UK is on the rise and soon enough there will be more violence and guns than they ever imagined on their streets. As it is now there is already more violence and are more guns than most head-in-the-sand types ever thought could be around.

Not really a good enough excuse to not bother though is it, it will be hard to do so let's not bother.?
I'm sure all of the shootings in the US aren't by drug dealers, plenty of "normal" gun owners.

No you are right the majority of shootings are by law enforcement. Go figure.

But thats only if someone shoots someone else. Actually most gun deaths in the US are suicides

No, I think it will make things worse to ban them, like a member above explained about the U.K.
I didn't say their all drug dealers, just compared a potential gun-ban to the drug war. Yes, even "normal" people flip out and go on a shooting spree.

The bottom line is guns will always be found by those wanting to harm, so let us keep ours to protect against them.

Is it just me, or has this summer served to desensitize us to shootings? I don't mean to underplay the tragedy inherent in murder, but seriously...

I find it interesting, too, that even before the cry of "blame guns for gun violence!" erupts from the throats of gun prohibitionists, the gun rights side of the fight have already begun their retaliatory remarks on the matter. How predictable we have become. That isn't to say that I am a gun prohibitionist, because I am definitely not. I agree with a couple of the other posters in this thread who have said it already: illegalizing firearms only disarms people who obey the law. Those who do not abide the law will not only have any arms they desire (as they do now), but a newly defenseless population to prey upon.
