Why isn't it a violent society to blame? Why isn't it a war mongering government to blame? Why isn't it the fault of violent video games? Or violent music? Why not the bullies in school? Abusive parents, relatives or neighbours? Why just guns? Why aren't all the other factors being considered as the cause of these tragedies?

Arent the people that own guns for protection the ones living in fear?
Any country in Europe or UK has lower gun crime than America. Lower deaths from guns. Way lower. People in Europe and the UK are not so very afraid of criminals I guess.
Do American's really think they can overthrow a government that has the largest military in the world? Thats stupid.
Isnt the American Government already tyrannical?
but America.. you reap what you sow!

To all you talking about automatic weapons in America and that they should be illegal. I don't know what part of the US you think we can walk around with a mini gun but I live in the state of Kentucky and automatic weapons are illegal here. Get caught with something like that and it's 10 years in prison.
Our access to weapons is already regulated. It'd take a lawyer to decipher the fully written laws in states like California and DC. When I purchased my semi auto 3 years ago, I went through a background check and that weapon is registered to me. I now plan to trade it in for a revolver. Even though its kept under lock and key, it's just too much weapon for home defense.
A 410 shotgun with light loads is best. It won't penetrate walls as easily.

Confiscation of Guns would make the founding fathers roll over in their graves. They gave us the 2nd Amendment so that :
0. We could hunt for food
1. We could defend ourselves
2. We could defend our families
3. We could defend our country
4. We could defend our property
5. We could take down TYRANTS and TYRANNY.
