My heart goes out to all those involved in this terrible shooting.
With that said......
I've read through most of the threads concerning this terrible shooting, and to be honest what I find sickening is all the "people" (I use the term
loosely) jumping up and down about "How America is the only free country in the world because of all the multiple guns and ammo the "people" own and
there precious 2nd amendment and that the rest of us are blind and not free!"
After such a horrific shooting isn't it time America grew up a bit, I'm not suggesting bans or claiming anything like that, because as most American
posters will point out like they've done in all other threads so far, to do with this shooting, your not American you dont know what you're talking
about. Shouldn't you stop and take a look at yourselves for a sec.
Some Americans talk about freedom like they brought the rest of the world from out of the dark ages, I'm sorry but thats not freedom, its just your
paticular style of "freedom" that you feel the world needs shoved down there throats and more recently whilst looking down the barrel of a gun like in
Iraq and Afganistan.
When it comes to Americans and there guns they sound to me just like those taliban extremists screaming sharia law, islamic freedom, and the infedals
know nothing, whilst beheading or stoning some poor soul to death. Its like two sides of the same coin.
I've seen many American posters sarcasticallly claim cars, knives, drugs blah blah blah....kill people, should they be banned too???
Well, I own a car here in the UK, to do so, first I must pass a driving test, then as a new driver, insurance companies make it difficult for you to
own an expensive car to start with by charging a premium for new drivers, I then need the car to pass an MOT
which is every year and road tax either every six months or yearly.
Shouldn't a tool soley designed to kill (self defense or not) have even stricter rules and laws than owning and buying a car, a person before even
being able to own or fire a gun should be able to prove safe gun control and have some kind of physc test?
Shouldn't a person who then owns guns have police vist there homes to make sure the owner keeps their guns safe and out of reach of others? If a
person in the household is suffering a mental illness, shouldn't someone in some kind of medical or police authority be told, even moving the weapons
to somewhere more secure till the person can prove they are safe to be around weapons and shouldn't this be done routinely?
If you want to keep your precious firearms shouldn't you have to prove to your fellow Americans that you and yours are safe to be around!!
