To say I over people like you lot is an understatement.
One moment you claim that you don't care what the stupid Americans do to themselves; but in the next moment you remark about how much you'll enjoy
when Americans are made to suffer.
Why do you care whether Americans want to run their own country in a savage or backward style? If South Ossetia and Kazakhstan can do it, why can't
Australians have constructed a society that you are convinced is morally superior---yay for you. But if Americans do the precisely the same for
themselves by controlling their own nation in a style they like, it's suddenly awful.
Germany has some of the toughest gun laws in Europe, and they have a problem with school shootings, just like the US (google Winnenden, Erfurt,
Emsdetten, + school shooting for the more recent ones.). Germany's stats are all the more alarming since overall their crime rate is lower than the
US, but per capita their school shootings are on par with the USA
Since 1990, when "gun free zones" became legal in the US, practically every mass murder has been committed in a gun free zone. The only exceptions
have been 2 in restaurants. And in one of those, the shooter drew fire from other diners, and fled.
Mass murderers strike when they hope there will be no resistance. It's why they often wear bullet proof vests, to reduce the chance of being stopped
by another shooter. When they are confronted with the possibility of an concealed carrier on site, they choose another venue--a hospital, a temple, a
playground, a shopping mall.
Funny how there are so few killing sprees at gun ranges. Why is that?
